Custom Torque Sensors

Datum Electronics are able to provide both modular and custom designed torque and rotary strain measurement solutions, which can be complete as one off or as fully integrated OEM solutions.

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

Key Features

Key Features

Datum Electronics are able to provide both modular and custom industrial sensors, as well as reaction and rotary strain measurement solutions. The solutions range from an installation on a specific shaft or coupling on a test rig to the full design of an integrated system for a drive system. Engineered solutions can be complete as a one-off torque sensor or as fully integrated OEM solutions.

We have also designed and built the world’s largest torque transducer of 12 MNm.

With over 30 years of experience, Datum Electronics have completed over 1,000 such designs and will probably have something approximately close to your requirements in our library. If you would like to discuss an application, where you believe a custom torque sensor design would be of benefit, please call our technical sales team or email us a drawing or sketch of the shaft and its location, including as much information as possible.datum custom torque sensors 1

We also provide production sensors in high volume for our OEM customers.

  • Cost-Effective Solutions
  • Custom Torque Sensor Designs





      • How can I work out the Torque for my test, I only have the Motor Speed and power?
        Datum Electronics Ltd can work with the customer to calculate the expected torque using known measurement principle and suggest an appropriate torque sensor for you like our M425`
      • What if I don’t know my maximum torque measurement load?
        Datum Electronics torque sensors have a safety factor built into them for 150% overload protection. Our technical sales team will be happy to work with you to help you choose the right sensor
      • What is the smallest torque that you can measure?
        Our standard RS425 Size 1-Al is a 0-3Nm transducer which will give an accuracy of better than 0.1% of the full scale allowing for measurement in the Ncm range.
