Can I connect a Torque sensor signal to a brushless servo drive?

Can I connect a Torque sensor signal to a brushless servo drive?

Hello guys,

for a Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation, I need to operate a Kollmorgen DBL servo motor in torque-control mode. The problem is, that these motors use the motor current to estimate the torque at every instant. However, I would prefer to use one of the servo drives inputs for an external torque sensor (placed near the motor shaft) and use this signal for closing the feedback loop? Is this possible?

Thanks alot and have a nice weekend
