Title: BEARING ASSEMBLY WITH INTEGRATED SENSOR SYSTEM
Abstract:
The bearing assembly with integrated sensor system (1) includes a hub (4) defining a bore (40) for coupling with a shaft (41), a housing (2), and at least one row of rolling elements (8) positioned between the hub (4) and the housing (2) allowing rotational motion therebetween while confining the hub (4) axially and radially within the housing (2). It also includes at least one strain sensor element (90) attached to the hub (4) for measuring forces applied to the shaft (41), which is electrically connected to a power source (89) and a processor (91) for receiving a signal from the strain sensor element (90).
