Wheel Torque Transducer WTT-Dx

Acquire drive and output torques directly at the wheel

In automotive development, it is important to know the exact torques acting on the vehicle – especially under acceleration and braking maneuvers. With the WTT-Dx wheel torque transducer, a high-precision tool is available for making such measurements. The WTT detects the mechanical load directly where it is produced: the wheels that form the interface between the vehicle and the road.

    1. Hub adapter:
      The hub adapter connects the WTT-Dx to the vehicle. It can be used for different types of vehicles, as long as the bolt circle and the wheel offset are the same. With just a few hub adapters, an entire vehicle fleet can be covered.
    2. Rim adapter:
      As with a conventional rim, the rim adapter serves as a mount for the tire. The rim adapter is not directly specific to the vehicle, but depends on the tire. This allows it to be used on different vehicles with the same tire size.
    3. WFT sensor housing:
      The WFT sensor housing connects the hub adapter and the rim adapter to each other. These three components together form the vehicle-specific wheel. Since the calibration factors are permanently stored in the sensor, you can recombine adapters and sensor housings at any time without having to calibrate the wheel again. Thus, based on a modular design, a WTT-Dx Wheel Force Transducer can be adapted to the vehicle in a time-saving, space-saving and cost-effective manner.
