  • Patent number: 4150566
    Abstract: Torque measuring devices are provided for measuring the torque being transmitted from a turbo jet engine to auxiliary assemblies such as aircraft air conditioning equipment, auxiliary electrical generator, special lifting devices and the like. The torque measuring device includes a plurality of hollow shafts which are rotatable about a common axis. A first of the shafts is drivingly connected with the engine while a second of the shafts is in driving engagement with an auxiliary assembly. A third elastically deformable shaft is drivingly interposed between the first and second shafts in such a manner that the amount of torque being transmitted results in a relative rotation of the first and second shafts, which relative rotation is detected by electro-magnetic sensors.
