Datum Custom Engineering Solutions and Industrial Torque Sensors
In many cases, it is better to use an existing shaft or test rig and use custom industrial sensors instead. This process reduces the cost of fitting a conventional torque transducer and it improves the torque measurements, taken by maintaining the dynamics of the driveline.
Datum Electronics are able to provide both modular and custom industrial sensors, as well as reaction and rotary strain measurement solutions. The solutions range from an installation on a specific shaft or coupling on a test rig to the full design of an integrated system for a drive system. Engineered solutions can be complete as a one-off torque sensor or as fully integrated OEM solutions.
We have also designed and built the world’s largest torque transducer of 12 MNm.
With over 30 years of experience, Datum Electronics have completed over 1,000 such designs and will probably have something approximately close to your requirements in our library. If you would like to discuss an application, where you believe a custom torque sensor design would be of benefit, please call our technical sales team or email us a drawing or sketch of the shaft and its location, including as much information as possible.
We also provide production sensors in high volume for our OEM customers.
