The DS60 provides accurate information of ship's speed over a wide range.
Speeds are detected relative to the ground or water for both fore-aft and
port-starboard directions. The measurement capability at dead slow speed is
vital for precise docking of huge tankers to oil loading/unloading facilities,
as well as safe navigation in narrow channels or straits. Operation at high
speed assists economical cruising in open seas.
While retaining the measurement accuracy of the DS30, the DS60 provides a
greatly downsized transducer unit. This means that the time for installation and
space required for installation will be reduced. The compact, high-frequency
transducer measures ship's longitudinal (fore-aft) and transverse
(port-starboard) speed, as well as water speed and direction under the hull.
The 8.4-inch color LCD display shows information in both alphanumerics and
graphics. It offers three display modes: 3-axes speed, berthing and NAV data.
The modes can be switched with the optional remote controller. For wing
installation, IP56 waterproof box for the display is available (optional
The DS60 comes standard with the DS661 gate valve and tank. If a tank without
gate valve is desired, the DS661 may be replaced with the DS660 tank without
