ship monitoring system / engine
KONGSBERG Engine Monitoring Systems consist of bearing monitoring components covering Bearing Wear, Water in Oil, Temperature of all bearings and additional measuring points such as Cylinder liner and exhaust gas temperature.
Software & system components are common with the K-Chief 600 marine automation system and the AutoChief® 600 propulsion control system, allowing integration and joined support. Data transfer via CAN bus forms the bases for easy communication with other KONGSBERG systems.
Modular and scalable concept
Systems may easily be extended by adding additional hardware units such as operator stations, input/output modules and additional measuring points. Kongsberg System Technology offers signal acquisition and processing units for installation in ER cabinets, ECR consoles or mounted directly on the engine. Processing algorithms are executed within the local acquisition units or in the powerful controller units. By distribution and segregation the consequences of a system fault are reduced and may even be eliminated. The Kongsberg Engine Monitoring Systems concept yields a modular design, where the various modules can be configured and combined to suit individual needs. The individualised Engine Monitoring systems can then be integrated with Kongsberg K-Chief and AutoChief 600 system. Each module is fully compatible with each other and therefore provides seamless information sharing and a consistent operation environment. Essential components such as bearing wear sensors and wireless temperature sensors yield the best results that technology has to offer in terms of reliability, accuracy and durability.
