Keeping your vessel EEXI compliant
Datum Electronics has developed a shaft power limitation (ShaPoLi), EEXI Shaft Power Acquisition Module, that when integrated with Datums Shaft Power Meter, provides a verified shaft power data signal to the propulsion control system to limit the engine power.
The Future of Condition Monitoring
Datum Electronics manufacture “smart”, intelligent systems to sustainably improve engine monitoring across several industry sectors. Datum Hawk is just one of those systems aimed at the marine industry. An advanced self-learning condition monitoring system, capable of analysing each individual cylinder of the engine from the dynamic torque signature.
Real time monitoring solution for silos
Silo hawk is the market-leading non-intrusive real time weighing solution for silos and other weighing apparatus, using the high accuracy measurement solutions from our bolt on sensors range.
SOLAS Container Weighing Solution
Cargo Hawk is a non-intrusive SOLAS compliant Container Weight Verification system. Using Datum Electronics highly accurate and patent protected innovative bolt-on strain gauge sensors, Cargo Hawk seamlessly integrates to new and existing container handling equipment, without the need of introducing expensive high wearing consumable load monitoring hardware.
Easy to Connect, Configure and Use
Datum Connect is the latest configuration and logging application, which supports the latest torque sensor technology. Datum Connect allows simple, quick and easy configuration of all Datum torque sensors, enabling users to see torque sensor outputs in real time in a format of their choosing.
Datum Electronics products are versatile enough to work across a variety of sectors including marine and shipping, automotive, aerospace and defense, civil engineering, government, green and renewables. We work closely with our distrubution and partner network to continually develop innovative and sustainable solutions to benefit the end user.
“We did extensive market analysis when we first entered the shaft power measurement business. The price to quality ratio for Datum Shaft Power Measurement Kits is really good, compared to competition. Plus the staff have always been very supportive as well.”RDA Shiptech
Measuring Viscosity of Fresh Concrete by Sensing Torque
Torque Measurement is a very simple mechanical process; in essence, it is a measure of the ‘force’ used in turning (or attempting to turn) something. When a force or ‘torque’ is applied to a shaft, the shaft twists (by a very small amount).
Preventing Breakdowns on Mixer Production Lines
Datum Electronics was approached by a gypsum manufacturer, who was looking for options, which would allow them to monitor the viscosity of gypsum fluid in their mixing tanks, during the production process.
Ensuring Cement Production with Real Time Power Monitoring
Recently, a cement manufacturer contacted Datum Electronics after experiencing an unexpected shaft breakage of one of the motors (used for the rotation of the kiln).
