The global maritime data tracking and shock measurement specialist, Dyena, has launched a version of their monitoring system aimed at supporting Naval Architects running vessel trials.
Dyena OFFSHORE Premium records detailed information on a vessel’s motion, position and performance, through various parameters including pitch, roll, yaw and accelerations in 3 axes. With sampling up to 1000 Hz, all data is recorded alongside GPS data to include SOG, COG, time and position. With upto 2 years memory capacity, the system provides high resolution data for development and long-term trials.
Up to 16 Remote sensors can be mounted on vessel structure or equipment to measure shock and vibration in different locations. With shock mitigation technology enabling boats to be driven harder and faster, determining the effect of impacts on the machinery or electronics is important to their long-term operation.
Installation is simple. The internal GPS antenna and self-calibrating sensors begin recording to the solid-state memory when the unit is powered. Engine data from the vessels NMEA canbus network can be included, providing Naval Architects with a complete analysis package to produce a detailed summary following vessel trials.
