Datum Electronics is a world leader in the supply of marine torsion and shaft power meters for measuring the static and dynamic on-shaft torque and shaft power of drive shafts, propeller shafts, intermediate shafts and generator shafts.


Datum Hawk is an advanced self-learning condition-monitoring system capable of analysing each individual cylinder of an engine from its dynamic torque signature. Coupled with the Datum shaft power meter, Datum Hawk forms the ultimate sensor system for real-time condition-based vessel monitoring.


Datum’s innovative strain gauge-based technology has been successfully used for decades in many industries for product torque testing, drive system R&D, verification of shaft power levels for quality control and compliance, strain sensors for vehicle weighing and safety, vehicle drive shafts and numerous other applications where the power transmitted through shafts is key to efficiency and safety.


To accommodate misalignments and absorb shock loads and vibrations on industrial machines, we supply spare parts and complete flexible couplings of TB Woods Sure Flex (flanges and sleeves), Dura Flex (hubs and elements) and grid couplings in the 1000 / 2000 series.
