Custom engineered solutions

Datum Electronics Series 420 PTO (Power Take Off) 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 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.

C440 Helical Screw Pile Torque Sensor

The C440 has shown that is not only a solution but it is the future for the measuring torque in the helical screw piling industry. The accepted method of assessing the integrity of a helical screw pile is by estimating the hydraulic back pressure generated using visual hydraulic gauges and recording by hand this data. This system is both time and labour intensive and generally has an accuracy rating of only 10-30%. The C440 helical screw pile torque measurement system has an accuracy rating of better than 1% with its data being able to be wirelessly transmitted to rugged PDA or laptop.

Torque Sensors (10kNm to 500kNm)

These products are used as Rotary Power Sensors, Rotary Torque Sensors and Torque Meters. Rotary or static applications, shaft trials or telemetry systems, bespoke solutions engineered to fit of free issue couplings, whatever your requirements Datum Electronics have the expertise and experience to offer the right solution at a competitive price.

Custom Engineered Solutions

In many cases, it is better to use an existing shaft or test rig and convert this to be the torque sensor. This process reduces the cost of fitting a conventional torque transducer and it improves the measurements taken by maintaining the dynamics of the driveline.
