We are delighted to introduce a new condition monitoring feature, which is seamlessly integrated with the Onboard Platform. It includes intelligent vibration sensors that protect your rotating equipment on board such as engines, generators, gearboxes, and so on. The condition monitoring feature combines with the Digital Logbook, Onboard Analytics, and Vessel API to give you maximum flexibility, and a complete picture of your entire fleet’s performance and health.

What it monitors

These sensors monitor a range of vibrations simultaneously, including monitor impact (acceleration peak), fatigue (average velocity), friction (average acceleration), severity (crest factor) and temperature (Degrees Celsius). This means they can detect a variety of mechanical issues, such as unbalance, looseness, misalignment, bearing failure, gearbox mesh tooth fault or cavitation.

What it means for maritime businesses

System integration on board and connecting vessels and crew to shore and the supply chain is still a big challenge for the maritime industry. With Onboard, you have access to a single, easy-to-install solution and growing ecosystem of technologies - including high-performance condition monitoring with its range of vibration checks - to aggregate and combine data in one place. Here’s how the complete solution works together:

  • The Maritime IoT Gateway captures data from every machine, sensor, and crew member on board your vessels.
  • Onboard Apps includes Vessel Monitoring, Fuel Efficiency, and Digital Logbook. These apps enable you to make unbiased decision-making, deliver operational efficiency, slash fuel consumption, and reduce paperwork and engine wear and tear.
  • The Vessel API enables you to explore and integrate maritime data from across your fleet directly into your workflows, business intelligence tools, and applications, as well as automate your planning processes.
  • And with Onboard Analytics, you can now visualize this wealth of data in any way, shape, or form you need.

With these solutions, maritime businesses have a complete suite of tools to rapidly increase operational efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and build unbeatable competitive advantages.
