MDS2 Monitoring System

The American Vulkan MDS2 monitoring system, available from Clutch Engineering, can gather data for the optimization and protection of your industrial machinery. This particular system is able to measure the twist angle of couplings or composite shafts within your equipment. MDS2 can be used as a monitoring device to help plan long-term preventative maintenance, or as a safety device when integrated with a clutch. This can create a method for disengaging and protecting the drivetrain from dangerous overload. These systems can offer capabilities that include the monitoring of dynamic vibratory twist angle, drive side and driven side, and torsional amplitudes. These featured capabilities reach up to 30 degrees.

Typical applications: Marine propulsion, auxiliary drives, generators, wind turbines
