All our products are designed and developed by our engineering team. Our extensive background from the offshore industry enables us to design our own unique control and monitoring systems, for both new and existing products. Our products can be used on any equipment within marine, oil, gas, aquaculture, and land-based industry.
Control system for cranes, winches, A-frames etc., developed for retrofitting or upgrading all types of lifting & handling equipment, including AHC systems.
Our system can replace existing control systems on all machines already utilizing mainstream PLC or PC-based controller. Compatible with mainstream protocols and networks allows usage of already installed components like loadcells, pump cards, amplifier cards and joysticks.
All our developers have more than 20 years of experience in the lifting and handling industry. We also design control system for newbuilds.
REMOTE BULK & BALLAST OPERATIONS
Example of system description:
Replace the manual hand wheels/levers on the existing valves with electric actuators. The system is now operated from the bridge and ECR through a touch screen (HMI) and contains all systems. Only one system will be displayed at a time and contains the following functions / information:
- P&ID schematics
- Valve control (each valve is individually controlled)
- Tank level indication
- Start/stop function of pumps
The displayed system to be chosen on a menu tree on the screen
All systems are capable of standalone functionality, with their own CPU/control system. Each system is built into its unique cabinet, with unique supply fuses for each actuator
Our system is designed to provide the crane operator and technical personnel with live system information during operations, maintenance, and troubleshooting. It is designed as a standalone system for retrofitting on existing cranes and lifting equipment without interfering the original system. The ICUm monitoring system can also be installed on new equipment together with all necessary sensors.
It can be configured with a wide range of sensors, customized in accordance with customer request and system requirements. It can also be connected to existing sensors. HMI menu tree will be individually designed.
Examples of monitoring:
Safe working load, radius, slew sector, boom angle, wire pay out, etc.
Remote access is the foundation for urgent diagnostics, monitoring, software transferring tool, and cloud data storage. The system can be installed on all machines already utilizing mainstream PLC or PC-based controller and can be configured to push/pull equipment status and alarms as extreme overload, running hours etc to specified receiver.
Scheduled ‘health check’ can be performed on command or periodically to compare equipment operation according to specifications and to ensure service and maintenance. Without interfering the original system, additional 3rd party sensors and equipment can be connected.
