New CMR e-pulse delivers extended marine engine life

EPULSE 300dpiCMR Group, automation and control system specialists for marine and energy applications, has developed a new approach to extending the life cycle of engines

E-Pulse is a new control system that can be installed on medium and high-speed engines operating in harsh marine and land-based applications and installations. The company stated that because there is no requirement for maintenance of the system post-installation, operational cost savings of up to 100 per cent can be achieved.

Built around an integrated touchscreen-operated local operating panel, main control cabinet and junction box microprocessor package, E-Pulse provides comprehensive engine alarm and monitoring, safety, control operational capabilities for 20 years.

E-Pulse reduces the requirement for future control system refit, providing advanced operational functionality.

While reproducing existing engine functions, the technology can be fully customised and configured to implement additional monitoring functions to improve and simplify the operation with a minimum investment cost.

In addition, E-Pulse has been designed to be easily retrofitted to an existing installation, minimising downtime, or fitted as part of a new vessel or power plant installation.

Utilising the latest technology and open-source software (OSS), the interface to external propulsion systems, auxiliaries and vessel management technologies are hardwired I/O, Modbus RTU and Ethernet TCP/IP compatible, providing the user with an easy-to-use, reliable and fully independent engine control solution.

Gerard Baldellou, marine division manager at CMR Group, said, “CMR will offer a turnkey sensor, cabling and control system package for retrofit E-Pulse installations, while flexible and versatile system architecture ensures E-Pulse can be fitted quickly and easily for new engine installations.”
