The Gyrometric Incremental Motion Encoder (IME) was invented within a research project at Nottingham Trent University. It has since been developed into a commercial product now selling worldwide and expanding into new markets.
- Standard encoders use a single sensor or read head to monitor the angular displacement and rotational speed of the shaft.
- The Incremental Motion Encoder (IME) is a rotary encoder with multiple sensors.
- Signals from the read heads are time stamped and processed by sophisticated algorithms to yield digitally based data which can accurately measure movement in two linear dimensions.
- The data is further analysed to monitor the progression of any variations providing warning of possible faults.
Remote Monitored Systems (LON:RMS) is focused on the continued development of the Company’s ‘Survey & Inspection’ business. RMS also has a majority interest in GyroMetric Systems Limited, which develops and manufactures digital monitoring and safeguarding systems for rotating shafts.
