Marine Vessel Fuel Monitoring System

Marine Vessel Fuel Monitoring System

The marine vessel Fuel Monitoring System (FMS) calculates fuel usage from diesel pressure and temperature parameters. Usage curves plotted on CMR’s Smart Innovative Monitoring System (SIMS™) are compensated through various pre-programmed factors, including the variation of diesel oil density.

CMR's Fuel Monitoring System (FMS) features a new hardware configuration to accurately calculate your actual diesel consumption levels using a combination of fuel pressure and temperature sensors located on the engine.

This innovative approach to computing fuel consumption as a function of fuel pressure and temperature enables the engine manufacturer to avoid the use of expensive fuel consumption measurement systems based on fuel mass flow meters.

With the CMR SIMS™ unit at the heart of the FMS, connection can be easily made to a marine vessel’s Automatic Supervision System (ASS) through a secure Ethernet or TCP/IP communication link. This is in turn is interfaced for data capture through CMR’s Smart Connecting Modules (SCM™), contained in small cabinets mounted near or onto the engine, which perform the data acquisition function.

CMR’s SCM™ units feature four channel 20mA analogue input cards connected to the engine’s fuel pressure and temperature sensors. Additional sensors can then be added, if required, via a spare module. Up to six inputs from switches or up to four inputs for analogue channels are available.

Our fuel monitoring systems are able to:

• Add other channels from auxiliary equipment to the system for monitoring.
• Integrate with CCTV systems to help prevent tampering by crew, for a more robust system
• Store historical data/reports
• Deliver remotely access of vessel information via PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone
• Remotely troubleshoot system performance
• Provide customised reports according to end user requirements
