GMS-750RS is a simple, fast, and accurate tool designed for static alignment in large-scale hydro generators. It can be used at the time of initial installation and during re-assembly after maintenance procedures. GMS-750RS is easily positioned at predetermined locations between the stator core and rotor poles. Air gap distance is accurately measured and displayed on the embedded screen. The GMS-750RS is simple to use and configurable with unencumbered mobility. It provides usable data and measurement you can trust. It reduces operational costs through faster maintenance time, hence reduced downtime.

As shown below, the steel spring targets are deflected by the rotor and stator when the instrument is inserted in the gap between them. As the rotor stator gap varies, the sensor will detect a change in the distance between the two springs and vary the output on the digital display to indicate the rotor-stator gap.
Stops are provided for the user to set an insertion depth. This is important as the gap between misaligned rotor-stator assemblies can change with the depth that the measurement is made.
The GMS-750RS is calibrated at the factory prior to shipment. Field calibration is also possible. The only requirement is to be able to accurately mimic a 0.250”, 0.375” and 0.750” rotor-stator gap. This can be accomplished with a granite surface block, appropriate precision ground spacers, a flat metal plate and the ability to compress the target springs with the flat metal plate (some force is required).
