Datum Electronics

Datum Electronics


Datum Electronics are a world leader in the supply of Marine Torsionmeters 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.


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 system which is capable of measuring shafts between 150mm – 1100mm diameter with speeds up to 900RPM as standard.


Our 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 no certified MIL Specifications.


We are constantly developing systems to meet the challenges from both civil and military applications.

Why Us

For the last 25 years, we have been working on development and implementation of ship performance monitoring systems able to provide highly accurate non-contact shaft and power measurement data for ongoing monitoring on a ship. All our systems benefit from simple and economic installation and minimal service requirements.

User benefits from ongoing vessel monitoring include:

  • Continuous real-time highly accurate data
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Compliance with latest IMO regulations
  • Availability of a ship’s operational history
  • Competitive pricing and short delivery times
  • Immediate savings of up to 3% in bunker fuel costs

Moreover, our dedicated and experienced team of engineers can assist you with installation, technical training and ongoing support worldwide.
