Moog has provided rotary solutions, electronics components and condition monitoring solutions for harsh marine applications for over 30 years. Leveraging this expertise, Moog created a wide range of standard products specifically for tidal energy, off-shore wind energy and wave energy applications. Specific uses may include: mooring systems, pitch rotary swivels, yaw rotary swivels, electronics for control systems and monitoring of umbillical cables.

Suitable for Harsh Marine Applications

Capable of being submerged in marine environments for many years, Focal's fiber-optic swivels allow for uninterrupted fiber-optic communication through 360 degrees of rotation. Moog can combine electrical swivels, fluid / gas swivels and fiber-optic swivels into a single package, simplifying customer installation and maintenance

Supports Modern Systems and Industry Standards

Designed to work with modern control systems, Focal marine products use a common diagnostics system. This system provides the user with a simple interface for monitoring remote and local parameters such as: optical transmit power, optical receive power, temperature, software configurable I/O and link activity. 

Focal’s marine products support several industry standards, including:

  • EtherCAT
  • Ethernet
  • RS-232 / 422 / 485
  • SIIS level 1, 2, 3
  • Digital Subscriber Loop (DSL)

Increase Up-Time and Reduce Troubleshooting

Focal’s condition monitoring equipment allows for increased up-time, and reduced time spent troubleshooting by using real time monitoring and trending analysis of multiple system parameters. Individual units (e.g. optical monitoring system, slip ring sensor) allow for monitoring of rotary swivels, fiber optic umbilical cables and electronics. The various sensors tie into a common software interface, streamlining user interpretation and decision making. The provided data can assist in preventative maintenance scheduling and troubleshooting.
