How can i measure Torque and speed at the same time?

I can only measure the Torque and speed separately, is it possible for me to measure them together at the same time? From the circuit diagram attached below, i cannot measure speed and torque at the same time by using the connection as in attached file.

Sure it is. Keep in mind that torque is a through-quantity so you need to place a Torque Sensor in series with your mechanical connection, while speed is an across-quantity so you need to place your Speed Sensor in parallel with the node of interest. I hope this helps!

Do you just need a simple circuit to show the series and parallel connections? Proper operation depends on your circuit, but I attached a basic working example showing the sensor connections. Hopefully this helps!
