We start by putting pressure sensors on the net in strategic locations.
Then we analyze the data.
BEFORE AND AFTER GRAPHS: The above is an example of a graph showing 2 sets in BLACK of a net before changes were made, and 2 sets in RED after changes were made. The customer wanted his net to fish deeper. It clearly does.
We also have live sensors available during testing so that we can cross check our results in the wheelhouse during the sets.
We install hydraulic pressure sensors at key points in the vessel's system.
HYDRAULIC PERFORMANCE GRAPHS:
Then we graph and analyze the data that has been recorded. We need to know that the machinery is getting the anticipated oil pressures and flow. If there is something wrong with the vessel’s hydraulic supply, the performance will be compromised.
We install wireless Load Cells at key points around the deck and in the skiff to measure the real loads on the net and machinery.
We graph the pressures and loads together and analyze the data.
We mount several cameras around the vessel. We can synchronize the camera output to the data we collect. The result is the animation you see on this page.
