Another example of how the versatility of the MultiCon multi-channel device can be used is the application for recording of parameters of the internal combustion engine propelling a fishing boat.

The following model works well in the application: CMC-141-PS32/E/I16/RT4/FT2-0B1

Signal inputs:

The I16 module consists of 16 current inputs. One of them is used to receive a signal from the transducer, which measures oil pressure in the system.

The RT4 module consists of 4 temperature inputs. They are used to receive information on the temperature of oil, flue gas and coolant.

The FT2 module consists of 2 pulse inputs for flowmeters/tachometers. It is used to monitor diesel consumption on the boat.


Because of mobility the application does not require permanent connection to the network. The data is downloaded via the USB port.


The measured values are visualized on the device panel and, if necessary, scaled in logical channels. The measurements are collected into a single group with active recording. Every exceedance of the permissible parameters is signalled to the operator, which increases the reliability of engine operation.

Special features:

For ease of use the USB port is located on the front screen of the device.
