The primary function of the invention is to operate as a constant torque block up to a given holding torque.
This is a range of motion splint (10) for applying constant torque across a joint undergoing rehabilitative therapy.
In addition, embodiments of the disclosed invention provide a motor that provides constant torque at constant current irrespective of the speed of the rotor.
Output torque or brake pressure (constant torque method) and working surface temperature shall be recorded.
A disadvantage of known torque sensors is that said sensors can generate greatly fluctuating measurement signals even at a constant torque.
A constant and minimal torque is required to bolt the segments together as a result.
The torque motor (30) according to the invention has an unsymmetrical rotor (20) that produces a non-constant air gap between the rotor (20) and the stator (1).
In torque motors known from the art a non-constant air gap is produced between the rotor and the stator that consist of sheet stacks by complex constructions on the stator.
Thus, in a human-powered vehicle, constant thrust can be maintained significantly increasing the vehicle efficiency, compared to the cyclical thrust or torque generated using a mechanical system.
According to the invention, the setting ring (17) is associated with a rotor of a torque motor.
A stator (18) of the torque engine surrounds the rotor of the torque motor in a concentric manner.
A mechanical machine (gravity engine) is proposed in which a continuous torque can be expected by means of overhanging mass elements.
The propeller blades may be oriented "into the wind" to develop consistent torque across a variety of wind speeds.
The Z shaft (102) of the lathe (101) performs position control and the bar feeder (105) performs force control in a manner to apply a constant torque on the work (104).
Each motor is operable optionally in a constant torque mode and a positioning mode and each motor has an angular position transducer (T1, T2).
