Daniamant Electronics AS has recently released a new Electronic Inclinometer, the DanEI-300.
The DanEI-300 Electronic Inclinometer is an advanced heel and pitch measuring device, insensitive to horizontal and vertical accelerations. This will provide information to better understand the movement and steering behavior, supervision of trim, and cargo and stability status of ships.
On rolling vessels, the usual bubble or pendulum inclinometers indicate values which are too high, allowing a marginal error up to 30% of the measured value. The DanEI-300 will not be affected by these accelerations, measuring the true inclination and roll period. Furthermore, the DanEI-300 aims to reduce fuel consumption and improve safety. Additional features are listed below.
The Electronic Inclinometer Measures and Displays:
•Amplitude (port & starboard)
•Additional trend plots display heel angle for latest 3 minutes and roll amplitude for latest 30 minutes.
