|Revolutionary Gyro Stabilizes Trawlers|
The Seakeeper Gyro spins a forged, high-strength steel flywheel at 10,000 rpm in a near-vacuum to generate an unmatched 7,000 Newton meters/second of angular momentum. Completely internal, it has no drag-producing protrusions from the hull that can be damaged from impact or snag seaweed.
This gyro works just as well at anchor as it does underway. Ideal for planing or displacement boats, it is controlled by state-of-the-art motion sensors and computer processors to optimize torque.
The gyro features an active hydraulic brake, heavy-duty gimbal shafts and bearings and sturdy, cast aluminum saddle beams. Status and diagnostic information can be accessed from the display panel and keypad.
Designed for craft up to 60 feet in length and/or 60,000 pounds of displacement, the gyro measures 38.5 inches L x 30.7 inches W x 26.5 inches H and weighs 1,000 pounds. The unit requires just 1.5-2 kW to operate.
Retail prices of the Seakeeper Model 7000 Gyro start at $79,000.
