Sensors and Hull fittings

The electromagnetic sensor, also called transducer, measures the speed through water (STW) of the ship. The sensor is held in place by a hull-fitting.

48MM electromagnetic sensor and hull fitting

The 48MM sensor is fitted with a 16 or 32 m cable.

Three versions are available:

One for dry cell
One for wet cell (water ballast)
One dual axis version (longitudinal and transversal speed)

65MM electromagnetic sensor and hull fitting

The 65MM sensor is fitted with a 20 m cable. Three versions are available:

One for dry cell
One for wet cell (water ballast)
One dual axis version (longitudinal and transversal speed)

LENS electromagnetic sensor and hull fitting

The LENS sensor is designed to give the highest performance on double hull ships. It is available in dual axis version (longitudinal and transversal speed).

It is built of epoxy resin, providing an exceptional lifetime to the equipment.

SM2000 smart sensor

The SM2000 electromagnetic sensor is fitted with 3 m cable, with connectors. This is an intelligent and adjustable sensor.

It meets the climatic, mechanical and radio electrical resistance standards applicable to equipment onboard navy ships. It can also be integrated in ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle).

SM2000 consists of:

One smart sensor
One 3 m cable with connectors
