Torque Measurement


Torque Transducers with Datum Electronics

Datum Electronics specialise in torque measurement solutions. Our principle activity is providing Rotary Torque Measurement solutions, torque transdcuers and torque sensors engaging the needs of our customers in a variety of different environments and applications.

Torque Transducer

Torque Measurement

Our Rotary torque transducers are available in an array of different types and varieties to meet the needs of our customers.  Torque measurement can be used in a number of different applications including: 

  • monitoring and control
  • power management
  • increased efficiency savings
  • power monitoring


Torque Transducer Solutions

We have a standard range of torque sensors and transducers which we have developed over a number of years. Measuring torque in Newton Meters (Nm) as standard, we can measure torque from as low as 5Nm up to and including 500,000Nm.

Torque Transducer Specifications:

Torque Rating:   5Nm – 500,000Nm
Rotational Speed:  0 – 20,000rpm
Data Sampling Rate:  0 – 20,000sps
Torque Output:   Nm / lbft / lb-in / kNm
Calibration Units:  RS232 / RS485 / 0-10V / 4-20mA / +/- 10V / +/-12mA
Shaft Requirements:  Can be either standard or fitted to free issued shaft
Accuracy:  System Accuracy 0.1% (0.05% can be achieved)
Environmental Protection:  IP54 (standard) Up to IP68 if required
Torque Analysis Options: Standard torque, speed & power with optional torque ripple
