America’s Cup Yacht Mast Rotation Position Sensor

America’s Cup Yacht Mast Rotation Position Sensor

A custom position sensor designed to monitor the rotation of the mast (mast angle) of an America’s Cup racing yacht.

This was a particularly complex development as the sensor was required to monitor an arc movement while subject to pitch and roll on a ball joint.

  • 90 degree arc measurement range
  • Installation subject to a varying measurement gap
  • Harsh marine environement
  • 3D printed prototype assembly delivered in 2 weeks
