Latest DMS-500 Sensor Range Launched at Oceanology

Press Release
Tuesday, March 13, 2012

A new addition to the Teledyne TSS range of DMS-500 motion sensors is being launched at the Oceanology International exhibition in London March 13-15.
The DMS-500 range is being developed specifically to meet the needs of users who require a top-quality motion sensor with Ethernet connectivity, but do not require the subsea-rated housings that typify Teledyne TSS products. The result is a complete range of sensors which incorporate a number of advanced and innovative features for applications such as Dynamic Positioning (DP), wave height monitoring and structural stress monitoring.
The second phase of the product’s launch introduces the Heave range of sensors – DMS-525, DMS-550 and DMS-500H. These provide 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 and inclusive of heave measurement at ±5cm or 5% whichever is greater. Unique features of the new sensors 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.
The solid state circuitry of the DMS-500 is contained within a surface-use housing which 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 of more than 50,000 hours plus global availability due to the absence of any export restrictions.
The compact and lightweight DMS-500 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 labor warranty and the acclaimed high level of Teledyne TSS technical support that is constantly available.
