Stop Wasting Time Adapting Your Drive Line – Get a Custom Shaft Torque Sensor

Tired of costly modifications to incorporate torque measurement into your existing machinery or test rigs?  Our custom shaft torque sensors are the perfect solution!  Install a sensor directly into your existing drive line, eliminating the need to change couplings or machinery positions. This saves you both time and money, while maintaining the integrity of your system for accurate test results.

Datum Electronics design and manufacture custom shaft torque sensors for any application, from delicate handling equipment requiring sensors as small as 2 Nm to the world’s largest torque sensors measuring up to 40 MNm.  Get a sensor built to your exact specifications, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal performance.

Our sensors are fast to deliver, often arriving quicker than the time it takes to modify your existing drive line.  This minimizes downtime and gets you up and running faster.

Unmatched Accuracy and Reliability:

All Datum custom torque sensors utilize our proven Series 425 and 426 electronics, renowned for their exceptional accuracy and resolution. These versatile sensors can be used in various configurations, including:

  • Rotary Torque Transducers (linked to product/m425-rotary-torque-sensor-and-rotational-torque-transducer/)
  • Reaction Torque Sensors (linked to product/custom-shaft-torque-sensor-solutions/)
  • Digital Torque Meters (linked to product-category/torque-sensors-meters-transducers/

Whatever your torque measurement needs, Datum has the expertise to deliver the perfect solution. We offer custom shaft torque sensors for:

  • Rotary or static applications
  • Shaft trials
  • Telemetry systems

  • 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.
