Amongst the most important measurements that take place on vessels are those needed for calculating ship trim and draught, to ensure vessel safety and stability.
The Servowatch system, ServoTrimTM, is designed to control a balanced draught for a vessel with trim conditions that have been set manually providing automatic follow on control. While the system is not a fully automatic and dynamic stabilisation system, it can be set to automatically recognise the optimum draught and trim required under different operational conditions such as loading or unloading fuel, supplies and personnel.
Employing highly accurate hydrostatic level transmitters, concurrent measurements of ballast tank levels and multi-point draught indication can be taken. These instruments have an encapsulated stainless-steel housing qualified to protection class IP68 and IP69K; both are essential in protecting the measuring cell and electronics from the harsh environmental condition.
