Draught Measurement

Hoppe Marine Draught Measurement solutions monitor the draught of the vessel and determine draught values precisely at perpendiculars and draught marks.
System Overview

Hoppe Marine Draught Measurement solutions monitor the draught of the vessel and determine draught values precisely at perpendiculars and draught marks.

The standard Draught Measurement system configuration includes four measuring points with pressure sensors, located at bow, stern, mid ship port and mid ship starboard.

The hydrostatic pressure sensors HCG 2011 and HCG 4011 have been especially developed to detect the levels in a wide range of liquids with different media properties. The pressure sensors of the HCG series can be configurated to the required measuring range, housing material and process adaptor.

The pressure sensor HCG 2011 provides a signal of 4 – 20 mA and allows customised measuring ranges, adjustable via HART protocol. The pressure sensor HCG 4011 is designed with a digital serial BUS interface, which allows cost saving cable loop installations.
