Charles Massicotte and Francois Levesque, OpDAQ Systems
Our partner company OpDAQ Systems in Rimouski, Québec has been awarded a contract to equip 34 Canadian Coast Guard vessels with fuel management marine systems. The TorqueTrak TPM2 Torque & Power Monitor instrument from Binsfeld Engineering will provide the true mechanical Torque and Power measurement data related to fuel consumption and vessel speed.
The embedded systems will provide on-board staff and managers with real-time data on fuel consumption, engine power and ship speed. This approach has advantages both economically and environmentally by facilitating continuous and measurable improvement of operations, according to the developer.
Since its creation in 2008, OpDAQ Systems has exported its products to more than 24 countries through its network of distributors.
Commenting on the latest project, company president, Charles Massicotte, said, “This is an important step in achieving our goal of being the Canadian benchmark for performance measurement systems in the maritime sector.”
Innovation and dynamism at OpDAQ Systems also allows the company to apply its expertise in other industries. “The technologies we develop are easily transferable to all industrial sectors including railways, mines and power plants diesel, as these are all areas where energy consumption is an issue.”, explained François Levesque, company Vice President.
Introducing the NEW TorqueTrak TPM2
Binsfeld Engineering is pleased to introduce the new TorqueTrak TPM2 torque and power monitoring system for rotating shafts. The all-digital system features a RS422 full-duplex interface with system setup and configuration via computer software (provided).
Like all Binsfeld Engineering torque telemetry systems, the TorqueTrak TPM2 does not require shaft modification or machine disassembly. Rugged and precise, the TorqueTrak TPM2 is available for shaft diameters from 0.75"(19mm) to 40 inches (1016mm) and is ideal for almost any torque and power evaluation project.
TorqueTrak Revolution
Continuous Torque and Power Data
Designed for permanent installations and continuous monitoring, the TorqueTrak Revolution instrument from Binsfeld Engineering Inc. provides continuous output data from the rotating shaft for four key parameters: torque, power, RPM and direction of rotation. It is an inductive, non-contact system - no batteries, no wear surfaces - machined to fit the shaft, up to 40 inches diameter.
TorqueTrak 10K
Fast & Easy Torque Measurements
For temporary testing or short term measurements it doesn't get much easier than the TorqueTrak 10K telemetry instrument from Binsfeld Engineering Inc. Accurate and simple to use, the TorqueTrak 10K fits any size shaft and any torque level. It is ideal for field work and troubleshooting marine propulsion systems, drive systems, compressors, conveyors and other large machinery. Normally, units are in stock, ready to ship.
