Configurable engine monitoring
A new approach to extending the life cycle of engines has been developed by CMR Group, automation and control system specialists for marine and energy applications.
E-Pulse is a new control system built around an integrated touch screen-operated local operating panel, main control cabinet and junction box microprocessor package.
It reduces the requirement for future control system refit, providing advanced operational functionality alongside comprehensive engine alarm and monitoring, safety, control operational capabilities for 20 years.
Because it can be installed on medium and high-speed engines operating in harsh applications and installations there is no requirement for maintenance of the system post installation, providing significant long-term operational cost savings.
While reproducing existing engine functions, the technology can be fully customised and configured to implement additional monitoring functions to improve and simplify the operation with a minimum investment cost.
In addition, E-Pulse has been designed to be easily retro-fitted to existing installation, minimising downtime, or fitted as part of a new vessel or power plant installation.
Utilising the latest technology and open-source software (OSS), the interface to external propulsion systems, auxiliaries and vessel management technologies are hardwired I/O, Modbus RTU and ethernet TCP/IP compatible, providing the user with an easy-to-use, reliable and fully independent engine control solution.
