Indicators with stepping motor principle

NORIMETER – 360° analogue indicator with stepping motor principle


Analogue indicator NIQ31

  • Long lifetime due to compact and robust technology, a high protection class and a glass-fibre-reinforced, salt spray resistant plastic housing, suitable for outdoor areas
  • Individual scale design and corporate logos possible, even for small quantities
  • Monitoring for valid measuring signal
  • Option: Minimum-Maximum value indication for saving and indicating the highest and lowest measured value
  • Option: Motor with anti-clockwise rotation
  • Fulfils all conventional ship classifications


NORIMETER indicators of type NIQ31 are analogue, high-resolution stepping motor indicators controlled by microprocesses. They have a 360° scale dial and the motor is without a mechanical stop. They serve to indicate the rudder position, propeller position and pitch on ships.. Their compact and robust design makes them suitable for continuous use in harsh environments.
