38 CENTRALIZED AND AUTOMATIC CONTROLS IN SHIPS (vi) To provide a reduction in the number of conventional indicating and recording instruments. The advantages of data logging equipment may be summarized as: (vii) Early warning of potential breakdown. (viii) Factual records of performance. (ix) Watchkeeping staffis relieved of routine logging and recording duties. (x) Increased operating efficiency due to the close tolerance supervision of the machinery. (xi) Determination of trends and undesirable characteristics of main machinery under varying conditions.

E. there is a minimum step of one-tenth of a mile required in the measured quantity before the milometer value changes. The milometer is, in fact, a mechanical counter which counts the number of revolutions of the car's wheels, through a suitable gear ratio. Other examples are: Liquid volume may be measured as integrated flow by counting the number of revolutions of a paddle wheel rotated by the liquid as it flows through a pipe. The length of a steel billet may be measured by counting the number of rotations of the mill rollers (with corrections to allow for slip between the rollers and the billet).

As the relation between spring thrust and movement is linear, the valve travel is related linearly to the controller output. The extreme bottom position is reached when 15 psi is applied to the diaphragm. The size of the unit is determined according to : (i) valve stroke, (ii) operating force required. Fortunately, both functions are usually tied to the nominal size of the valve so that the variation is generally compatible. The diaphragm valve actuator gives good accuracy unless (i) there is high friction on the valve stem, (ii) the reactions at the end of the valve stem are large and variable, in which case a positioner is required.
