A gyroscope’s capacity to stabilise is its angular momentum. This is a measure of how big the rotor is and how fast the rotor is spinning.
Gyro Marine offers gyroscopes from 75,000 Nms to 1,500,000 Nms.
Rated Stabilising Moment is the maximum permissible load realised from the installed angular momentum in normal operation
Gyro Marine offers gyroscopes with stabilising capacities from 200,000 Nm to 1,850,000 Nm.
Location and Orientation
Gyro Marine gyroscopes can be located anywhere on the ship with equal effect. This includes offset from centreline or offset about center of gravity; vertically or longitudinally.
Installation orientation is with control and electrical connection points oriented towards port and starboard and main accesses oriented forward and aft. This can be so oriented in either of two 180 degree yaw opposed positions.
Monitoring and display of energy consumed by function including energy recovered.
An all electric drive and brake with internal, fail safe, static brake.
A high strength steel forging precision machined. Fully contained in structural housing with viewing port and internal illumination. Balanced to better than turbine standards for low vibration.
Operating entirely inside a vacuum, with customised high speed vacuum seal technology, to reduce net power consumption. Direct controlled high efficiency, compact electric motor, with regenerative capacity.
Titanium seawater cooler with start/ stop control and monitoring of remote supply pump.
Internal water glycol cooling circuit for all device cooling.
