New Propulsion Control System


New Propulsion Control System

Kongsberg Maritime has launched a new AutoChief propulsion control system specifically designed for medium and low speed diesel engines. The AutoChief C20 utilises knowledge gained through more than 35 years of working with all the major marine engine manufacturers and builds on the company existing highly successful machinery automation systems. Kongsberg Maritime has designed the system with a user-friendly interface that provides all key information graphically, through a colour display. On screen user assistance and recommendations are also available for training purposes.

The main components of the AutoChief C20 include control panel, remote control system, engine telegraph, engine safety system, digital governor, manoeuvring recorder and distributed processing units. Straightforward integration with the Datachief C20 machinery automation system enables the sharing of essential sensors between the systems, requiring only one interface to the main engine. However, Open architecture also enables easy integration with other manufacturers' equipment. The AutoChief® C20 uses single board distributed processing units (DPUs) installed directly in existing junction boxes on the main engine. All signals to and from the engine are transmitted on dual redundant CAN lines, reducing cabling costs. In addition, the system uses fewer moving parts ensuring that little maintenance is required.
