Shaft power measuring kits for accurate on-site work.

02 September 2010

A new shaft power measuring kit from Datum Electronics enables shaft power to be monitored and measured accurately whilst in the field. The kit, which can be applied using minimal skills in six simple steps, is available in two formats. The standard kit provides data from the shaft for long duration trials of between 30 and 60 days and is supplied in a robust weatherproof housing. The second format is a compact version for single day trials, accessing power levels and torque characteristics such as those found in start up maximum torque levels.

Both Kits include strain gauges supplied with a connector to avoid the need for soldering, and have an encapsulated coating to simplify environmental sealing.

The system provides measurements of shaft torque, shaft rpm and shaft power and has an accuracy of 0.1%. Data rates are from 1-1000 samples per second (sps) with additional dynamic options up to 15,000 sps.

Each Kit is supplied with a simple-to-use PC utility to display and log the data. An optional interface is available to provide a 4-20mA or +/-10vdc output for datalogging devices and control systems
