Kemilinks’ Fuel Monitoring System is built to interface with any flow meter model and other sensors such as engine control panel, anemometer and GPS, to capture data regarding engine RPM, engine load, propeller pitch, propeller load and rudder angle.
Data can be sent back to shore over the IsatData Pro satellite system, allowing graphical trending reports to be analysed at the vessel’s corporate headquarters, to determine the best ways to maximise efficiency.
IsatData Pro can deliver up to 10,000 bytes of information to the device and up to 6,400 bytes from the device.
“The efficiency this design offers to onshore management is unrivalled and it comes at a very cost effective price,” said S. H. Tay, director of marketing and projects for Kemilinks International.
“Benefits include always knowing the location and operational performance of the vessel and having the capability to immediately make effective directives to correct operational inefficiencies.”
