DMS (Surface and Subsea)

The DMS range of motion sensors is designed specifically for the motion measurement needs of the marine industry. Whether it is achieving IHO standard survey from any size of vessel, or providing safety critical monitoring of offshore platforms, large vessels, helicopter landing decks, cranes and positioning systems, the DMS provides accurate motion measurement in all sea conditions. Incorporating an enhanced external velocity and heading aiding algorithm for improved accuracy during dynamic manoeuvres, the solid state angular rate sensors offer reliability in the highest performing vertical reference units ever produced by TSS.

Roll, Pitch

The DMS-RP sensors meet the requirements of the dynamic positioning industry for accurate vessel roll and pitch measurement. The units provide accurate motion measurement in all sea conditions. Incorporating and enhanced external velocity and heading aiding algorithm for improved accuracy during dynamic manoeuvres, the solid state angular sensors offer reliability and a complimentary blending algorithm has proven that the DMS is the highest performance vertical reference unit ever produced by TSS. The DMS-RP sensors are available in subsea and surface versions. The sensor can be supplied in various configurations for integration with towed vehicles and other bespoke applications.


Heave
Whether in ports or harbours, offshore or as part of a hydrographic mapping programme, the need to measure ocean depths with the utmost accuracy is vital. The DMS-500H heave sensor has been developed to work with a wide range of modern single beam echosounders. With their design, allowing acceptance of correction data from the DMS- 500H, real-time heave compensation of the sounder data is achievable. Providing heave data in analogue and digital format, the outputs of the DMS-500H are easily configurable via a simple operator menu.

Compact, ruggedised and quick to install, the sensor is supplied with the cable connector necessary for interfacing and is accompanied by a comprehensive operation manual. In addition to echosounder compensation, the DMS-500H is ideally suited to a wide range of offshore applications including crane and winch control, wave radar and ship motion measurement.
