Rotor-stator gap measuring system
The GMS-750RS rotor-stator gap measuring system is a maintenance tool designed for measuring rotor-stator gap in large scale power generation applications.
The GMS-750RS rotor-stator gap measuring system is a maintenance tool designed for measuring rotor-stator gap in large scale power generation applications. The GMS-750RS uses Kaman's proven eddy current sensor technology incorporated into an easy to calibrate turnkey instrument. It provides accurate and repeatable gap measurements between 0.250 and 1-in., with a 0.001-in. resolution. The GMS-750RS is designed to reduce the overall time it takes to align the rotor to the stator. The measurement system reduces repair costs and lost revenues during downtime. Featuring a long insertion depth and adjustable insertion stops, the GMS-750RS provides an LED readout of the gap in inches or millimeters. The system also uses ac input power from a wall transformer power supply.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
