Torque Limiter

ESL Torque Limiter courtesy R+W America

A torque limiter is an automatic device that protects mechanical equipment, or its work, from damage by mechanical overload. In a motion control system a torque limiter may be found in:

  • Servo drive systems
  • Systems operating in a broad temperature range
  • Systems requiring millisecond disengagement
  • Systems where repeated disengagement is required
  • Systems where environments are corrosive
