They are designed to enable load monitoring during jacking operations and help maintain stability on uneven and shifting seabeds or strong currents.
Models mount between the electric motors and pinion drive gearboxes on each leg's truss. They transmit data via two-wire 4-20mA loop to the control room.
Because the instruments measure source load distribution directly, they enable a much faster response time than other systems, it's said.
With MCRT there's no guesswork on location of stress on a rig's structure. Advance warning of any change or movement of weight helps prevent damage to decks and jacking equipment.
