Fuel consumption monitoring and GPS location tracking of sea or river vessels (ships, boats, dredges) allows shipowners and ship operators to reduce operation costs by minimizing idling time of fleet, preventing fuel theft and improving crew discipline.
Technoton’s telematics system for sea and river watercrafts is based on accurate tools for fuel consumption measurement – DFM and DFM Marine fuel flow meters that are mounted in fuel line of main engine, auxiliary engines, diesel generators and boilers/heaters. It can also include DUT-E fuel level sensors, which are installed in fuel tanks, and MasterCAN DAC i/o modules for gathering signals from standard analog sensors of a ship/boat. Vessel telematics system provide precise information on vessel’s position, real fuel consumption, engine operation hours in different work modes (idle, optimal, overload), possible fuel draining from tank and other necessary operation parameters. Information is gathered and analyzed by CANUp telematics gateway and sent to the web-based ORF4 telematics service, where it can be displayed on virtual dashboard and as tables and charts.
