Industry Database

Digital transformation within the maritime industry can only succeed with integrated automation according to Bachmann electronic GmbH, which will show examples of its integrated automation applications at SMM.

Service, data connectivity, security, operational cost reduction - digital transformation means many different things, but automation is always the key. Bachmann electronic is a manufacturer of control systems, engineering tools and visualization software.

At SMM 2018, the company will use customer applications to demonstrate how its holistic approach to data creates added value. A good example is the data collectors that predict the availability of the diesel-electric powertrain in Royal Wagenborg's walk-to-work project. To make cable consumption more cost effective and to reduce the number of push buttons on board for the customer, the Kooiman Marine Group used remote I/O controls in combination with an easy-to-understand, user-friendly Human Machine Interface on the operator terminal. Norwegian Electric Systems broke new ground in onboard power supply and used an integrated platform solution from Bachmann: GMP modules for network measurement, atvise® M1 webMI pro for data visualization and 20-sim as hardware in the loop simulation software for model-based development.

The Condition Monitoring System (CMS) at Schottel not only monitors the vibration of its bearing and transmission, but also the temperature and presence of any free water in the oil. It alerts the crew of WSV Neuwerk earlier to errors and prevents flotsam from causing the two stern propellers to fail.

Together with Bachmann, Ulstein Blue Ctrl has developed the Ulstein X-Connect, a future automation platform that enables its users to work more intelligently and efficiently.

Bachmann Electronic, founded in 1970, is an internationally operating high-tech company based in Feldkirch (Vorarlberg, Austria), which provides complete system solutions in the field of automation technology. The company has 459 employees worldwide and is a leader in the renewable energy sectors, the number 1 in wind energy and also works in mechanical engineering and the maritime industry. The group of companies includes the Condition Monitoring System specialist Bachmann Monitoring and the manufacturer of the Atvise software Certec EDV.
