The Ministry of Economic Development has granted SailADV the PATENT CERTIFICATE FOR INDUSTRIAL INVENTION RELATING TO THE FREEBOARD METER.
It is an instrument that is able to measure the height of the hull part perpendicularly and above the waterline by performing an accurate freeboard acquisition.
It is related to displacement and to the weight of the vessel. Therefore, the measurement of the freeboard is essential to calculate the weight of the boat and to understand if the boat itself is properly loaded.
Our Free Board is able to overcome most of the drawbacks given by the measurement methodology currently in place which is manual.
The data coming from the sensors placed on the instrument are sent to the control unit which processes them, allowing the cancellation of the wave motion with filtering operations, thus obtaining a precise and repeatable measurement.
