Operators realise that increasing demands for close monitoring of a ship’s overall performance and its running costs, requires accurate and reliable measurement of torque transmitted through the propeller shaft. Additional speed measurement and signal conditioning allows a direct reading of system power.
The MT series inline rotary torque system is designed specifically for the marine environment, combining a rugged mechanical construction with a proven non-contacting inductive system, powering the shaft mounted strain gauge bridge and conditioning electronics.
The use of a single coil for power and data transmission allows for a large running gap, typically 10 to 12mm, therefore axial and radial alignments are not critical. Digital, analogue meters, current & voltage outputs are available to cover all requirements.
