shaft power measurement for marine industry

Vessel Monitoring & Optimisation Products

Datum Electronics are a world leader in the supply of Marine Torsion meters and Shaft Power Meters which measure both the static and dynamic on-shaft torque and shaft power of drive shafts, propeller shafts, intermediate shafts, and generator shafts.  Datum Electronics have both permanent and temporary Marine Torsion meters and shaft power meters which are highly adaptable and offer a range of outputs to suit your requirements.

EEXI / ShaPoLi Solution

Our EEXI and EEDI solution can help vessel owners comply with the latest legislation on energy efficiency, whether it be for new build vessels or retrofitted to a current fleet. This Shaft Power Limitation (ShaPoLi) system was developed to enable vessels to limit their fuel consumption and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by limiting the output power and logging discrepancies.

The Datum Torsionmeter is a key tool to measure Shaft Power in your Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) and as a Key input into you Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI).

For commercial marine customers, we offer a competitively priced, flexible shaft power meter system which is capable of measuring shafts between 150mm – 1100mm diameter with speeds up to 900RPM as standard.

Naval Torsion Meters

Our military shaft power meter systems are currently in service with UK Royal Navy, Australian Navy, Korean Navy, Indian Navy. The Datum Naval Torsionmeters were originally developed for the UK Royal Navy Mine-hunter Fleet and were tested to the most stringent of the UK Defense Standards for electromagnetic compatibility environmental conditions; the same designs are now certified MIL Specifications.

Mass Flow Meters

Allowing continuous and uninterrupted measurement of mass and volume flow, density and temperature, our range of high performance Coriolis mass flow meters allows the fuel consumption monitoring of MGO, MDO, LNG and other liquids.

We are constantly developing systems to meet the challenges from both civil and military applications. If you have a question about a standard or bespoke shaft power meter system, get in touch with our friendly technical sales team today.
