Oil Quality Monitoring
MEASURING THE OIL CONDITION OF YOUR HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS
BOSS™ OQM is developed to continuously measure the oil condition of a hydraulic system. These measurements are performed by a sensor that is placed in the hydraulic system during installation.
The BOSS™ OQM measures and calculates the contamination, temperature and pressure of the hydraulic system(s). With the measured data of e.g. the steering system, the torque can be calculated and is continuously visible on the display of the OQM.
BOSS™ OQM allows insight into the past behaviour of the steering system and its oil condition. If, for example, the rudder forces of the vessel are suddenly disrupted, one can look into the past logged information in order to determine when and why such an incident occurred.
If given permission by the customer/end user, DMC’s service engineers can directly connect to the BOSS™ OQM at all times to check the condition of the hydraulic system(s) and to perform condition inspections, direct failure analyses and predictive/preventive maintenance. This ensures maximum performance and minimal downtime of the vessel and its system(s).
It is advised to combine BOSS™ Dmc Cloud Connect (DCC) and Data Logging Function (DLF) with the OQM application to log and access the measured data. This allows to access past and present OQM measurements at all times and at a remote location.
- Data can be accessed from a remote location on a smartphone or tablet
- Allows insight into the past and present behaviour of the steering system
- All data can be logged and accessed in the cloud with BOSS™ DCC and DLF
- Continuously measures and displays the real-time condition of the hydraulic oil
Reliable COMMANDER™ and Van der Velden® steering systems for vessels engaged in all types of maritime activity. Standardised and custom-built options.
BOSS™ DLF automatically logs the measured and monitored data of other BOSS™ applications.
SP2700 CONTROL SYSTEM
SP2700 is a real-time redundant digital steering installation with a control and alarm system.
HP 7000 CONTROL SYSTEM
HP7000 is a proportional hydraulic installation. This steering installation is completely independent of the electrical system.
