All about Torque

…However, the “Torque” value is not normally displayed and is utilized differently by different bike computers. Garmin, for example, calculates the “Power” from “Torque” and “Cadence” in the bike computer. This means that the “Torque” function of the power2max power meter would be of no real use with these bike computers, as the “Torque” value is not displayed at all. Other bike computers, on the other hand, display both values, “Power” and “Torque”.
In order to offer all users the option of displaying “Torque”, power2max offers two ways of transmitting this value:
1. the version provided by the ANT+ standard to transmit all values in parallel.
2. up to a cadence of 30 rpm, the power meter transmits the “Torque” value in the “Power” display field of the bike computer. From 30 rpm, the transmission automatically switches to the actual “Power”.
Application for 2:
1. activation of the “Auto Pause” function to prevent the “Torque” values from being included in the determination of the average “Power” value. Disadvantage: the “Torque” values are not recorded.
2. continuous recording of the values even when stationary. Afterwards, however, the values for “Torque” and “Power” must be analysed separately manually using Excel or similar.
Syntax for 2:
1 = 0.1 Nm, from 30 rpm 1 = 1 Watt
Examples up to 30 rpm: 22 = 2.2 Nm, 365 = 36.5 Nm etc.
