DCU 410 Engine Controller

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe DCU 410 is the base building block to build a supervision system for both variable speed (propulsion or pumps) or fixed speed (generating set) diesel engines. The DCU 410 is a compact unit comprising of a front face utilizing a 5.7” colour screen with ¼ VGA resolution and “soft touch” buttons, which can be mounted to almost any flat surface with a cut-out.

The DCU 410 can accept inputs from J1939 data links, CAN open interfaces, Modbus RS485 and up to 16 analogue or digital inputs in its own right. It provides outputs in all these digital formats and via a standard Ethernet. The DCU 410 also provides engine control logic and the outputs required, including but not limited to, Pre Lubrication control, start & stop signals, both ETR and ETS, plus remote interfaces for these functions. Connections are made via clearly labelled connectors on the rear of the panel need no specialist tools.

DCU 408 Engine Controller

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe DCU 408 is an engine supervision unit without a local user interface. This is for use where there is no requirement for local control or indication of the systems such as in a cramped or unattended engine room.

This unit (or the DCU 410 ) is a basic requirement to build a supervision system for both variable speed (propulsion or pumps) or fixed speed (generating set) diesel engines . It is a compact unit suitable for off engine mounting in a steel enclosure. The DCU 408 can accept inputs from J1939 data links, CAN open interfaces, Modbus RS485 and up to 16 analogue or digital inputs in its own right. It provides outputs in all these digital formats and via a standard Ethernet connection.

The DCU 408 also provides engine control logic and the outputs required, including but not limited to, Pre Lubrication control, start & stop signals, both ETR and ETS, plus remote interfaces for these functions. Connections are made via clearly labelled connectors on the front of the panel needing no specialist tools.

The unit provides an interface via Ethernet to connect an RP410 for remote indication, or via an AV interface module to any customer supplied screen.

RP 410 Remote Panel

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe RP 410 is an 8.4” transflective colour touchscreen with full VGA definition. Suitable for consul mounting, the RP 410 is the clearest, safest way of communicating the condition and operating parameters of the equipment to the crew.

With simple, easy to use “touchscreen” functionality, the information and controls are displayed graphically and with icons for navigation. Highly effective for use in direct sunlight, but also equipped with auto dimming and a night mode, the RP 410 can be installed anywhere on the vessel. The unit connects to the DCU modules via a simple Ethernet connection, or via Ethernet switches if multiple panels required.

The RP 410 is approved by 10 Classification Societies, including supporting all requirements for Master panel, Active station and remote alarm suppression. It also supports multiple engines and accessories.

SDU 410 Shutdown Unit

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe SDU (Shut Down Unit) 410 is an independent module designed to provide the functionality required to meet Classification Society Rules up to and including UMS notations. Equipped with 8 switch channels, for normally open switches and inputs for two speed sensors, complete with wire break detection, the SDU 410 also provides for short circuit detection and protection.

The unit also has warning LED’s for each channel reflecting these fault conditions to assist troubleshooting. With its own built in web server, the SDU is automatically configured by the DCU module when connected via the simple two-wire link. The unit can also be used independently and programmed just using an Ethernet cable and any computer with a web browser.

RIO 410 Expansion Module

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe RIO 410 is an expansion module designed to allow specifiers to integrate the demanding variety of sensors and switches found today on vessels into the DCU or other ships systems.

The DCU can accept up to 4 RIO’s, and with 24 inputs, for switches, PT100 and 4 – 20mA sensors, and 2 off 24v outputs and 2 off relay outputs, this means each DCU can accept over 100 input/outputs utilizing the RIO 410’s. The RIO communicates with the DCU via a simple two wire link over Modbus, and also has Ethernet connectability. Linked to this feature, each RIO has its own web server built in, so each channel can be configured / named via a Ethernet cable and any computer with a web browser. Each RIO is automatically configured by the DCU when connected, but using password protected areas, each RIO 410 can be reconfigured, whether connected to a DCU or used as an independant “stand alone” unit.

RIO 425 AC Generator Interface

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelThe RIO 425 is a dedicated interface module to allow parameters from an AC alternator to be displayed on the DCU and the Ethernet network. Capable of integrating with voltages of 520VAC phase-phase, and up to 300VAC phase-neutral, plus phase currents, the unit also measures Frequency, power factor and Total kW.

The unit has easily configurable turn down ratio management for the required voltage and current transformers. Like all the Marine Pro units, the RIO 425 configures itself automatically when connected to the DCU, and can be configured independently if required.

Class approved, with a simple display on the unit to assist troubleshooting, the RIO 425 makes the ideal accessory to the DCU in generating set applications.

Remote Cameras

Auto-Maskin RSP 305 Remote Slave PanelBy using appropriately configured cameras, the Marine Pro can show up to 4 views from anywhere on the ship on any RP 410 fitted to the system. Visual, audio/visual, or potentially two way communication plus visual is configurable.

The cameras can be sited to watch machinery spaces, gangways, moorings, cargo, security sensitive areas etc without the installation of a dedicated CCTV system.

As for all the modules in Marine Pro, simply plug the camera into the vessels ethernet system, watch the DCU configure the system appropriately via a simple "plug and play" approach, and 4 views can be displayed simultaneously on any RP connected to the network.
