Datum Electronics are a world leader in the supply of Marine Torsionmeters and Shaft Power Meters which measure both the static and dynamic on-shaft torque and shaft power of drive shafts, propeller shafts, intermediate shafts and generator shafts. Datum Electronics have both permanent and temporary Marine Torsion meters and shaft power meters which are highly adaptable and offer a range of outputs to suit your requirements.
The Datum Torsionmeter is a key tool to measure Shaft Power in your Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) and as a Key input into you Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI).
For commercial marine customers, we offer a competitively priced, flexible system which is capable of measuring shafts between 150mm – 1100mm diameter with speeds up to 900RPM as standard.
Our systems are currently in service with UK Royal Navy, Australian Navy, Korean Navy, Indian Navy. The Datum Naval Torsionmeters were originally developed for the UK Royal Navy Mine-hunter Fleet and were tested to the most stringent of the UK Defense Standards for electromagnetic compatibility environmental conditions; the same designs are no certified MIL Specifications.
We are constantly developing systems to meet the challenges from both civil and military applications.
Shaft Power Measurement Kits are available in two formats, the standard and the compact kit. The compact kit is ideal for single day trials, while the standard one is used for long duration trials of between 30-60 days.
Our Series 460 2-Hole Bolt-On Sensor is not only an essential product for measuring micro-strain, but it can also become an integral part of a strain monitoring system for using in harsh environments.
The Series 460 3-Hole Bolt-on strain sensor has a unique design, eliminating the temperature effect on bending and strain of the application, and can work in almost any environment and in any weather.
Series 420 Naval Shaft Power Meter System has passed rigorous MOD and MIL testing programmes and is able to provide an accurate tool to monitor propeller shafts on ships by measuring shaft speed, torque and power.
