Our Power Take Off Shaft Torque & Power Monitoring System will monitor and log the torque, shaft speed and transmitted power accurately when testing new systems driven from all standard PTO Shafts.
Datum Electronics Series 425 ConnectTractor PTO Drive Shaft Torque and Power Monitoring System will monitor and log the torque, shaft speed and transmitted power accurately when testing new systems driven from all standard PTO (Power Take Off) Shafts.
The tractor’s PTO or stub shaft transfers power from the tractor to the PTO-driven machine or implement. Power transfer is accomplished by connecting a drive shaft from the machinery to the tractor’s PTO stub shaft. Common examples include elevators, grain augers and silage blowers. The PTO and drive shaft rotates at 540 rpm (9 times/sec.) or 1,000 rpm (16.6 times/sec.) when operating at full recommended speed. At all speeds, they rotate in proportion to the speed of the tractor engine.
Efficient measurement and monitoring of this power can be a useful tool in research and analysis into the performance of a tractor transmission system highlighting efficiency savings measurement and control.
In modern agriculture accurate measurements are key to improving the performance and efficiency of farming processes. Using Datum Connect to your smart device for quick, simple and accurate power measurements represents the smart agriculture approach that is needed.
With the Datum Connect Interface [DCI] the PTO system can easily integrate with CANBUS & ISOBUS systems for modern agricultural equipment as part of an accurate measurement system.

The Series 425 Connect Tractor PTO Drive Shaft Torque and Power Monitoring System has a non-contact transmissions system that provides a digital output directly proportional to Torque. Supplied as a complete transducer with bearings to support the stator unit, this robust design gives performance data by actual measurement on the rotating drive shaft. It is suitable for most power take off applications.
The PTO Drive Shaft Monitoring system has a female coupling on one end and a male fitting on the opposite end. The female end is coupled to the male end of the application. The PTO system acts as an extension adaptor, with the male end replicating the male end of the application. The torque and speed signals are transmitted from the shaft to a static cover assembly.
Measuring torque in both directions, clockwise and anti-clockwise the system provides accurate readings of Power, Torque and Speed easily viewed and logged with DATUM CONNECT on your smart device, in addition to the standard range of outputs offered by Datum Electronics 425 Series transducers for both digital (RS485/USB) and calibrated Analogue outputs (0-10V, +/-10V, 4-20mA & 12+/-8mA).
