The Doctor. Intelligent engine monitoring and diagnostics
Fuchs technology presents a revolutionary new range of high precision on-line multi-cylinder engine monitoring systems for portable and fixed installations on board.
An accurate engine performance measurement is key in order to make savings in engine maintenance and operation by means of a properly balanced engine in real time. This leads to less spares expenses and reduced fuel consumption, as it has been proven through measurements.
The ultimate monitoring tool for engine performance presents an online reliable tool for real time engine diagnosis in any kind of Laptop or from the Superintendent computer at the office.
The EDCenter is a modern engine diagnostic cloud application. The system analyses and diagnoses the condition of the engines based on various parameters and predicts incipient failures from every ship of the entire fleet. The system also continuously analyses the fuel consumption and indicates if savings can be achieved. Furthermore, the powerful multi-user system automates the huge data collecting and analyzing process. The EDCenter changes the habit of waiting for weeks to receive reports to be analyzed. In emergency cases chiefs, superintendents, fleet manager as well as external experts will automatically be alarmed by e-mail to take immediate action to ensure energy efficiency and low maintenance costs.
The DocSoft e-3 is the powerful heart of the ship or power plant level which is capable to online capture all engine parameters from different systems and evaluates and analyses them at the same time to predict incipient failures. In this way, the DocSoft also acts as alarm monitoring system for the engine with the capability to communicate with the alarm system on the ship. Furthermore, the DocSoft sends all engine data to the EDCenter to warn the managers onshore by e-mail about abnormal conditions on the vessel. This important function ensures that immediate action can be taken on all levels to ensure energy efficiency and low maintenance costs, instead of waiting for week or month on an external expertise.
DocPad 1/2 e-600 e-line
The DocPad e-603 / DocPad2 e-623 starts a new era of tablet-based engine analysis systems. The new portable single cylinder monitoring system consists of a data acquisition unit in combination with a modern tablet PC. The system is part of the newly launched “e-line” family, which includes a complete solution from data capturing with an automatic engine report as well as an automatic engine analysis software (see DocSoft e-3). In the unique and cloud-based engine diagnostic center , called “EDCenter”, the data is automatically analyzed and compiled to a fleet overview.
The combination of the tablet technology allows the system to connect directly to the Internet and sends the engine reports to the EDCenter in order to update the fleet performance. On various engine parameters the EDCenter shows the engine condition with traffic lights and indicates when savings can be achieved.
The DocPad2 represents the new generation of this portable single monitoring device and distinguishes itself through a higher resolution (0.05 degree crank angle) and therefore higher accuracy.
DocGate 732 e-line
The DocGate e-732 is a cost effective and robust permanent multi-channel online data acquisition and alarm device. The system does not require a computer in the engine room. It is online connected via Ethernet with a remote workstation in the control room. The system runs with the powerful DocSoft e-3 analysis software which controls the engine permanently. It includes alarm detection with visual and acoustic alarm indication.
The DocGate e-732 is designed for permanent 24/7 installation in rough and harsh engine room environments. The system can be equipped with a wireless and ergonomic tablet PC to operate around the engine.
The system is part of a new overall solution concept called “e-line”. This solution automates the huge data workflow between ship and operator. Engine data can be accessed at any time in order to keep track of the history and predict what will happen with the engine condition in the future.
DocHub 932 e-line
The DocHub e-932 is a new portable multi-channel online data acquisition device which is controlled wirelessly by an ergonomic tablet PC. The system runs with the powerful DocSoft e-3 analysis software. The technology allows a wireless connection to the control room workstation.
The DocHub e-932 is part of a new overall solution concept called “e-line“. This solution automates the huge workflow between ship and operator. Engine data can be accessed at any time in order to keep track of the history and predict what will happen with the engine condition in the future.
DocPro 1040 e-line
The DocPro e-1040 is a robust multi-channel online data acquisition system for permanent and continuous engine data acquisition. Compared to the DocGate e-732, the system is additionally able to simultaneously evaluate the shaft power. This unique system is able to online compare the current measurements with the shoptest data stored in the DocSoft e-3.
The DocPro is online connected via Ethernet with a remote workstation in the control room. The system runs with the powerful DocSoft e-3 analysis software which controls the engine permanently based on the key performance indicators. Therefore, the system also includes alarm detection with visual and acoustic alarm indication.
The DocPro is designed for permanent 24/7 installations in rough and harsh engine room environments. Additionally, the system can be equipped with a wireless and ergonomic tablet PC to operate flexibly around the engine.
The system is part of a new overall solution concept called “e-line“. This solution automates the huge data workflow between ship and operator. Engine data can be accessed at any time to keep track of the history and predict what will happen with the engine condition in the future.
