RTSX-A Rotary Torque & Angle Sensors
The RTSX-A rotary torque and angle sensor is an instrument for measuring dynamic torque with fastening applications. The rotary torque sensor is ideal for torque auditing programs and verification processes when paired with a torque analyzer. Angle monitoring sensors can be used to measure the rotation angle, joint rate & breakaway torque directly on the fastener.
Connect a rotary torque sensor between an electric or pneumatic tool, and the assembly application. The sensor quickly attaches to a power tool's drive without interfering with its ability to fasten a screw or bolt. The sensor measures torque under joint conditions, returning the most accurate results possible. The sensor is also compatible with measuring hand tools like torque wrenches and screwdrivers.
Companies must control torque to ensure product quality, safety, and reliability. Regularly auditing and validating tooling calibration is essential for reducing errors in your assembly process and preventing product defects for all manufacturers.
Measuring Torque for Quality Control
- Test and validate power and hand tools to ensure proper torque is applied and reduce manufacturing errors on your assembly line.
- The sensor has encoders for measuring the rotation angle when a fastener is turned.
- Easily verify that a tool’s in calibration or setting to validate tool performance.
- Conduct a torque auditing program to detect loose fasteners or any signs of joint relaxation.
- Plug & Play with Mountz torque analyzers. Features ARCII technology, an instant auto-recognition system of the sensor connected to the LTT or PTT.
- ISO 17025 calibration certificate included with analyzer purchase.

Select the model with the correct input and output drive for the application. Models ending with "-H" are 1/4" hex drive models.
This is the stand-alone accuracy statement for the RTSX-A torque and angle sensor. There is system accuracy when the torque sensor is coupled with a Mountz torque analyzer. Review the system accuracy listed with each torque analyzer (PTT or LTT).
WARNING! Not recommended for impact wrenches.
- Torque sensor for testing and measuring dynamic torque for power assembly tools with fastening applications. The sensor is also compatible with measuring hand tools like torque wrenches and screwdrivers. Ensure proper torque is applied and reduce manufacturing errors on your assembly line.
- The sensor has encoders for measuring the rotation angle when a fastener is turned (Angle output: 2-channel quadrature, 360 pulses per rotation).
- The sensor is attached to the power tool's drive without interfering with the tool's ability to fasten a screw or bolt. Measuring the torque output of a tool with a rotary torque sensor allows you to monitor torque being applied from the tool to the fastener or bolt and analyze the efficiency of the fastening process. It is ideal for torque auditing or torque verification programs.
- Validate that a tool is still in calibration with a torque verification process.
- For a torque auditing program, use a rotary torque sensor in the testing process to detect loose fasteners or any signs of joint relaxation. The joint rate & breakaway torque can be measured too.
- Features ARC II technology, an instant auto-recognition system of the RTSX-A connected to the PTT or LTT torque testers.
- Easily connect up to 4 torque sensors using the Mountz multiplexer.
- ISO 17025 calibration certificate included with purchase.
Measuring Torque for Quality Control:
Mountz Quality Standards:
Accuracy ± .25% of reading
The RTSX-A must be connected to a torque analyzer to display a torque reading and store the test data. Compatible with these torque testers:
Cables for Connecting RTSX-A to a Torque Analyzer:
Cable must be purchased to connect RTSX-A to LTT & PTT
Improve Your Calibration Process:
Multiplexer: Connect 1-4 torque sensors to the PTT or LTT torque analyzer. Switch between sensors manually or automatically.
Sensor Maintenance and Calibration:
Maintain and calibrate your tools on-site by purchasing calibration equipment to use in-house.
The organization that owns the tool must determine a suitable calibration frequency that meets their needs based on the history of equipment performance, application, degree of usage, and
For most organizations, we recommend 6-month or 12-month calibration intervals.
Calibration Wheels: Engineered for calibrating torque analyzers and sensors and ensuring instruments are traceable to National or International Standards, such as N.I.S.T and ISO.
Calibration Hangers and Weights: Calibrated Dead Weight are the official means by which torque analyzers and torque sensors are calibrated and are traced to National or International Standards, such as N.I.S.T, and ISO.;
