perform our analysis,? said Ken Lane, Director of Produc- tion Services at Glosten. ?The MTNW system captured the line tension data with an accurate time stamp which allowed us to easily synchronize the tension sensor data with other important measurements.? MTNW?s tension monitoring systems include a certi ed tension link, rugged water proof local display and a laptop PC with data-logging software. The system is plug-and-play for quick set up which allows for more time testing and lower fuel costs. The engineer can now watch the tension lo- cally, but also know that the data-logging software is catch- ing every tension spike for post-test analysis. ?MTNW equipment can accommodate tests as simple as full ahead or astern to more complicated tests which seek to correlate line tension to engine RPMs and other variables. The Winch- DAC software prints easy-to-read PDFs of each test. MTNW?s equipment is available for bollard pull testing and certi cation for tugboats and can be used as a rental device so that more naval architects, tugboat operations managers, and engineers can perform these services on their own. MTNW?s equipment is certi ed regularly and MTNW will work with certifying witnesses from DNV, ABS, Lloyds, Bureau Veritas and any other required certi- fying body.
