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.

Communication:

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

Configuration:

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.
