TrialsAPP released at METS 2015

Following excellent feedback from early adopters and repeated requests to make our product even easier to use. CJR has announced its further development of our data acquisition system onto an Andriod tablet. The new model is now available to buy or hire as part of our consultancy service.

 The system can be used to analyse noise and vibration, and provides valuable information about the possible source and cause of unwanted noise.  In addition, TrialsAPP provides general information about yacht performance such as speed, trim angle, heading, and engine RPMs – all utilising the latest GPS technology. 

“We knew it was an incredibly valuable and useful tool so it’s come as no surprise to see so many top tier boat builders wishing to purchase their own TrialsAPP, or commissioning our team on a consultancy basis to gather the results and produce accurate reporting. The product has been especially popular with those with a requirement to benchmark boat performance or where a particular vibration issue needs to be identified and isolated,” commented CJR director, Belinda Russell.

"We've found the product especially popular with production boat builders who need to know the precise performance credentials for a new vessel. Two top-tier builders have already purchased the system and the feedback has been fantastic.  No other single product on the market is able to gather and collate all the required information in one easy to use device," Belinda continued.

The system is based on rate gyros, GPS, accelerometers and magnetic field sensors to record every movement of the boat.  As well as accurate position information, the unit is customisable, allowing the monitoring of over 100 other parameters on board. Two vibration sensors, two RPM sensors and a microphone for sound noise level measurements are included as standard, but other sensors can be connected, including temperature and pressure, depending on the client’s requirements.

The unit is small, light and portable, and is very easy to setup and use. The software provided with the system can be installed on a low end laptop with a USB interface.  It produces real time reports in PDF format that can be viewed before the yacht has returned to shore and it completely eliminates the need to use hand written paper sheets during trials.

  • Bearings

    Suitable bearings are required in stern tube and rudder tube assemblies.

  • CJR Propellers

    Every boat is different and the first sign of this difference can be seen in propeller operation.

  • Couplings

    Couplings are the elements that transfer torque from gearbox to the shaft and because of their role they are under strict supervision of class societies.

  • Ducted Propellers / Nozzles

    CJR can offer ducted propellers systems including any type nozzles and impellers under full IACS approval.

  • Rudder Tubes Assemblies

    CJR manufactures rudder tube assemblies designed for hull trough installation to suit stock diameter from 30mm up to 180mm.

  • Rudders

    Rudder profile and sections are carefully selected to specific regime of the flow around sterngear.

  • Shaft Brackets

    Our shaft brackets are designed bespoke to achieve optimum performance in line with every vessel individual requirements.

  • Shaft Seals

  • Shafts

    Shaft design starts from designing entire shaftline incorporating all the components from the propeller to the gearbox and including the bearings to make the system safe, vibration free and efficient in operation.

  • Stern Tubes / Shaft Logs Assemblies

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

  • Tie Bars

    Tie bars connect both rudder tillers on twin rudder boats to simply synchronise them together.

  • Tillers

    Tiller is important part of steering gear which design is covered by strict rules of classification societies when the boat is built under class.

  • Shaft Alignment

    Using laser technology and precision engineering a bespoke shaft alignment tool has been developed to aid the boat builder’s task of accurately fitting and aligning the stern gear.

  • PropSmith

    For the fast, simple and precise installation and removal of propellers, PropSmith is the professionals’ choice.

  • TrialDAS

    TrialDAS is a new data acquisition system specifically tailored for monitoring sea trials. The system is based on rate gyros, GPS, accelerometers and magnetic field sensors to record every movement of the boat.

  • Keyless Hub Hydraulic Kit

    Quick and convenient method of pushing and releasing large propellers or couplings to and from the keyless shaft cone.

  • Hydraulic Propeller / Coupling Pusher / Puller

    Quick and convenient method of pushing and pulling propellers or couplings to and from keyed shaft end.

  • TrialsAPP

  • Quality Policy

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

  • Design

    We don’t only make propellers, we analyse entire propulsion system of each boat starting from hull resistance prediction and hull propulsive factors.

  • Pattern Making

    Precise pattern assures high accuracy of final product and it is one of the most important stages in manufacturing process

  • Casting

    CJR's foundry team has the combined benefits of over 150 years experience in the industry.

  • Machining

    CAD/CAM controlled machining of the cast propellers, P brackets and rudders are undertaken to the fine tolerances of their original design

  • Finishing

    Our processes ensure that the geometry of our finished castings is always true and accurate to the original design.
