Teledyne TSS Adds Heave Capability to DMS 500

DMS-500H

Following the successful launch of the new DMS-500RP motion sensor range in April, Teledyne TSS is expanding this product range with the introduction of the DMS-500H.

This new sensor provides heave measurement to complement the roll and pitch capabilities of the launch model. This is expected to be welcomed by a variety of users in the marine and offshore markets where there is known to be a need for a high accuracy sensor with these capabilities but at a lower cost and without the high performance subsea-rated housings that typify Teledyne TSS products. The new sensor can now provide heave measurement accurate to around 5 cm or 5 per cent.  The new DMS-500H also provides the unique features of the original model that have attracted the attention of a variety of users. These include Ethernet connectivity for the delivery of power and data, as well two independently configurable serial outputs. The DMS-500 range of sensors introduces conservatively-priced units that incorporate advanced and innovative features for applications such as Dynamic Positioning (DP), wave height monitoring and structural stress monitoring. The versatile design means that the range will be available in various accuracies to make it suitable for a wide range of bespoke applications.
 

The solid state circuitry of the DMS-500H is contained within a surface-use housing that is water resistant to International Standard IEC 60945 Class B for marine applications (IP65).  It is designed to be DNV-certified and uses solid state angular rate sensors that offer reliability with a MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of more than 50,000 hours, plus global availability due to the absence of any export restrictions. The compact and lightweight DMS-500H is certified to meet all current and anticipated European legislation for electromagnetic compatibility and electronic emissions.  It is also backed by a one year parts and labour warranty and the acclaimed high level of Teledyne TSS technical support that is constantly available. In addition to its range of motion sensors, Teledyne TSS also manufactures marine and survey grade gyrocompasses for offshore use on or beneath the sea. The company is also well established as a supplier of high integrity products to the marine and offshore oil and gas markets. These include inertial navigation systems, pipe and cable trackers and ship steering systems. Last year the company celebrated its 100th birthday which followed a move to an advanced new factory in Croxley Green. It now enjoys space for more production lines and it has a number of new products in development that are soon expected to occupy them.
