Teledyne TSS New DMS-500 Motion Sensor

A new range of motion sensors specially developed for commercial marine applications has been introduced by Teledyne TSS.

 

The DMS 500 range has been launched to meet the needs of users who require a conservatively priced, top-quality motion sensor with Ethernet connectivity, but without the high integrity subsea housings that typify Teledyne TSS products. The newest addition to the range is the DMS-500H, which can be used to measure heave and has important applications such as in support of crane and winch control and helideck operations. The DMS-500RP was launched earlier in the year and has been developed to measure roll and pitch to meet the needs of dynamic positioning (DP) system builders or any application that needs to provide high dynamic accuracy during vessel turns or extreme sea conditions.  

 

The DMS-500 label will ultimately be applied to a complete range of conservatively-priced sensors that incorporate a number of advanced and innovative features for applications such as dynamic positioning, wave height monitoring and structural stress monitoring. The versatile design means that the range will be available in various accuracies so that models are suitable for a wide range of bespoke applications. There are currently three models in the roll and pitch range; the DMS-525RP, the DMS-535RP and DMS-550RP. These represent a highly reliable, accurate and cost-effective choice for motion measurement with roll/pitch accuracies from 0.25° to 0.50° RMS with high dynamic accuracy during vessel turns. Unique features of the new sensor are the ability to provide power and data over Ethernet; and the inclusion of two independently configurable serial outputs - offering users a wide range of connection and application options. Teledyne TSS also manufactures marine and survey grade gyrocompasses which it sells under the Meridian and S G Brown brand names. The company also sells high integrity products which include inertial navigation systems, pipe and cable trackers and ship steering systems.
