Contactless Torque Sensor (CTS)

The DCE CTS devices are designed to be fitted in line with the steering column and can be used to transmit steering torque demands to the vehicle datalogger to aid with vehicle set up, or it can be used to directly connect these signals to the Microsteer (for the EPAS15 CTS) or DC Electronics Ultra (for the EPAS16 CTS) power steering ECU, when used as part of an electric power steering system.

The sensor transmits x2 0V to 5V analogue torque signals. The shaft contains an internal torsion bar to create a deflection allowing the sensor to read.
