Proven, accurate and real time measurement of shaft power
Direct measurement of shaft power is the most accurate measure of power to water
Having accurate power data allows for the most efficient operating mode to be adopted
Base line power curves created from sea trials provides data for trending analysis
Can be used an early indicator of hull and propeller fouling
Effective monitoring device for any anti-fouling measures taken
Reducing power usage will lead to a reduction in fuel consumption
Reduced fuel consumption leads to reductions in NOx, SOx, and CO2 emissions
Saves money, quick return on investment

Trelleborg's TSX5 Torsionmeter employs a full strain gauge bridge - the most accurate method of measuring torque. The strain-gauges detect minute deformation of the shaft under torque and convert this strain into a small analog voltage. Non-contact electro-magnetics energize the rotor circuitry which converts the small signal into digital data for transmission to the local stator unit.
A local multi-page display or control console version is an integral part of the TSX5. The user can read at any time, instantaneous power, torque and revs/min, cumulative power and revs, set-up data via a supervisor level and diagnostic data
High accuracy and repeatability
Digital system for data processing
Full data connectivity via all formats
All units include display for data and diagnostics
