Streszczenie / Summary:

In the article, drive–load system with magnetorheological clutch as a connection element is
presented. Research results of this clutch, working as a mechanical fuse are shown. During the
experiment, there was performed check out of clutch response to gradually increasing load up to
the level higher than safe for the system value. This was performed to show the possibility of this
clutch to protect the drive against load disturbances. After that, research results for predetermined
value of clutch control voltage are shown. Two diagrams present values of such parameters as
output torque, input, and output rotary speed for varying load. At the end of the article discussion
on obtained results is presented.
