New Dedicated Vessel Trim, Heel and Draught Monitoring System from PSM 

In response to detailed enquiries, we have launched a specific development of our Type Approved Connect Monitoring System which provides a dedicated Display of Vessel Trim and Heel, and as an option, Vessel Draught.

Intended as a simple to operate stand-alone package, the system comprises of two elements: a small enclosure fitted with solid state inclinometers to measure the vessels inclination, and a small console or wall mount touchscreen colour display.

Only a single 24V DC supply to the display is needed and a single cable interconnects both elements, meaning both can be positioned optimally for measurement of the vessel’s inclination and display at a convenient location. Repeater displays can be readily added, again only requiring a single cable connection.

The display provides a clear indication of both instantaneous and averaged Trim & Heel where the averaging period may be adjusted by the user, and, where PSM level transmitters are also installed, will show fore, aft, and midships draught.

The system has inbuilt corrections to remove any offsets caused by the location of the inclinometers and draught sensors, meaning true Trim & Heel in addition to draught at the marks is shown.

Another new feature is the switchable dark mode display for night operation, and although intended as a stand-alone system, also features an RS485 output which can feed current status to other systems via industry standard Modbus protocol.

The new system has already proved a great success with eight systems installed on Capesize Cargo Vessels from the Seanergy fleet.
