After the recent redefinition of the International System of Units (SI), torque no longer needs to be traceable to a calibrated mass in a gravitational field suspended from a known lever arm and disseminated through a chain of torque transducers.An SI-traceable torque can be directly realized using the Kibble principle where a torque is generated by a calibrated electromagnetic transducer. Here, a set of theoretical designs fora new instrument aimed at direct realization of torque to 0.1%accuracy is analyzed and examined for feasibility. With careful attention to magnet design, a robust and easy to implement torque calibrator can be built.
