Press Release: Inertial Labs Receives Tier 2 PDA Certificate from ABS for MRU

Paeonian Springs, VA: Through technical evaluation of the Inertial Labs MRU products, representatives of ABS assessed the related assembly drawings, design, datasheets etc., and issued a Tier-2 PDA Certificate (Serial number 19-HS1851412-PDA) for all members of the product line. This PDA ensures that the products do not require Unit Certification to be installed on ABS classed vessels, MODU or facilities which are in existence or under contract for construction on the date of the ABS Rules and Specifications used for the evaluation.

Furthermore, by determining Pitch & Roll, Heave, Sway, Surge, Accelerations, Angular rates, Heading, Velocity and Positions, the Inertial Labs MRU products are recognized as suitable for use with Dynamic Positioning Systems (DPS-1, DPS-2, DPS-3). According to the PDA, performance of the models reaches 0.05 meters Heave Accuracy and 0.02 degree Pitch & Roll Accuracy through an Operating Temperature range from -40 °C to 70 °C.
Inertial Labs MRU product line includes four distinct models to cover a wide range of marine and offshore applications: Basic (MRU-B), Enhanced (MRU-E), Professional (MRU-P), and Survey Set (MRU-PD).

Utilizing state of the art algorithms and MEMS sensors, Inertial Labs MRU is used for real-time, high frequency measurements of Vessels, Ships, Helidecs, ROVs, Marine antennas, Cranes rotation etc. Through a combination of proven industry expertise and continuous investment in R&D, Inertial Labs offers its customers the best price-performance ratio within the position and navigation market place.
The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) is one of the largest maritime classification societies with a fleet of over 12,000 commercial vessels and offshore facilities.
