Title: Electronic probe housing and automatic shutoff for steam turbine

Abstract: An electronic probe housing having two speed pick up devices automatically sends electric signals to an electronic governor which causes the RPM of the steam turbine to increase, decrease or remain constant, in conjunction with one or more additional speed pick up devices in the same probe housing which uses a logical array of electro-hydraulic solenoid valves to control an automatic shut off system which cuts off the steam supply to the steam turbine.
