Offshore and ship technology

Sensors that defy the elements

The demands placed on the technology involved in offshore and ship technology are enormous. Among other things, heavy loads must be moved, propellers adjusted, stabilizers controlled and the course maintained. And all this in an occasionally harsh climate at sea. Hydraulics are superior to other solutions when it comes to these challenges. But to be superior, they need the right sensors. Reliable and robust technology from Balluff withstands strong winds, high seas and aggressive salt water.

Application examples

Controlling ship stabilizers
Ship rudder control
Water-jet propulsion system control
Controlling variable pitch propellers (VPP's)
Lifting loads
Compensate for wave movements
