Rotary Power Measurement for existing drive shafts


Datum Electronics torque expertise allows us to apply our standard solutions to traditionally non-standard environments; we are aware of the challenge of accurately measuring torque without being able to introduce an inline transducer to the drive train.

Increasing we are seeing a need for more accurate torque measurement systems where customers are needing real time torque data and can no longer rely on older less accurate systems which estimate or calculate from hydraulics or electrical power.

This need is prevalent in Marine and Heavy Industries where the measurement of torque is required for; accurate control and feedback systems, basic monitoring purposes, efficiency concerns including fuel or power saving, or even to anticipate when something may break.

Using the proven and reliable method of measuring torque by applying a strain gauge to the main drive shaft we can provide several solutions to meet the needs of the most challenging environments. For situations where space is a premium such as mechanical stirrers in water treatment plants, our single point stator torsion meter design can be easily and simply integrated with a minimum on shaft space of 60mm. For harsh environments such as shipboard winches our military specification torsion meter can be easily integrated.

Our transducers can accurately output Torque and Speed Data digitally to RS485, Modbus, Ethernet or can be calibrated to give Analogue Outputs i.e. 0-10V or 4-20mA. This means that our systems can be easily integrated into existing PLC systems, industrial control systems i.e. SCADA.


About Datum
Datum Electronics is a leader in the design and manufacture of torque and power measurement products and systems. The M420 Series is one of several ranges that we can provide from stock. However, if this Series does not meet your specific application requirements, we have the facilities to design specialist customer solutions and are always ready to discuss these options with you.
