Datum Electronics are a world leader in the supply of Marine Torsion meters 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 shaft power meter system which is capable of measuring shafts between 150mm – 1100mm diameter with speeds up to 900RPM as standard.
Our military shaft power meter 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 now certified MIL Specifications.
We are constantly developing systems to meet the challenges from both civil and military applications. If you have a question about a standard or bespoke shaft power meter system, get in touch with our friendly technical sales team today.
Our custom Bolt-On Strain Gauge Sensors are designed and manufactured to your application, based on your drawings and specifications, including all types of output formats. Ideal for dynamic load monitoring, capable of measuring axle stresses and weight with high accuracy.
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.
