FWIW, Gary Staff's excellent new book on German battlecruisers places an AG/Petravic system also aboard Lutzow, where it displayed a similar susceptibility to failure through shock from own gunfire. Considering that it was fitted aboard all three ships of the class, I now wonder whether the installation was not so much "experimental" as it was a premature commitment to a new technology not yet fully perfected for service use.
I do not know the development and trial details of the RN Henderson gear. Homework is necessary, which is going to involve hunting through a lot of filed away documents.
