Having almost 30 years of experience as a manufacturer, Datum Electronics has been researching and developing shaft power measurement solutions for the marine and other industries, for ship performance monitoring, monitoring fuel consumption, engine condition and maintenance needs.

Our marine shaft power meter systems measure shaft torque, power, propulsion, rpm and thrust (if required), to ensure optimum performance is maintained throughout the lifecycle of a vessel. Using highly accurate & reliable strain gauge technology, combined with cutting-edge electronics, our system has an accuracy of 0.1%. It can be installed and commissioned within 1-2 days on a variety of shafts including intermediate shafts, thrusters, propellers and controllable pitch propellers. Our technology, along with our expertise in dynamic sampling of strain gauges, enable us to unlock a significant amount of information regarding the performance of the engine & propulsion shaft, along with the propeller.

Using Datum Electronics’ Shaft Power Meter system enables ship owners and ship operators to comply with ALL the new international regulations. Additionally, accurate shaft power measurement can highlight when essential maintenance such as hull cleaning, engine and propeller maintenance is required, helping to reduce running costs even further.

In addition, we also design and manufacture temporary shaft power measurement kits, capable of measuring and monitoring shaft power accurately in the field, including sea trials testing. Available in two formats (compact and standard), the standard kit provides data for long duration trials of 30-60 days and is supplied in a robust weatherproof shaft housing. The compact version, with the battery life of up to 30 hours, is portable and ideal for both smaller shaft diameters and single day sea trials.
