SCHOTTEL Automation Systems are suitable for vessels of all types and sizes, for both new constructions and retrofits in existing ones. The new modular structure based on proven X-Connect technology allows user-friendly mapping of even the most complex processes.
The underlying software comprises a single platform for all standard hardware components. This provides a central tool for the configuration of input/output modules (I/Os), programmable logic controllers (PLC), networks and the graphical user interface. All systems are class-compliant and meet the strictest standards for safety and reliability.
Whether it’s a simple alarm and monitoring system or a complex, highly dynamic automation solution: Owners and yards with SCHOTTEL Automation Systems will benefit from a state-of-the-art platform that can be customized to any requirements.
The SCHOTTEL AlarMon solution enables vessel operators to monitor all on-board processes and components. With Alert Lab and Signal Lab, warnings can be traced and investigated immediately.
When evaluating the signals, customers proﬁt especially from the intuitive user interface, which provides a clear overview of all information.
Visual presentation of the ship state (categorized and filtered)
Historic alarms, intuitive time scale and filter in the unique alarm circle
Advanced diagnosis of signals, smart video playback to see user selections
Adjustment of alarm parameters and groups to meet individual needs
Self-diagnostics for system architecture through automatically generated topology
SCHOTTEL AutoControl makes it possible to automate on-board operations by actively controlling the individual components of the vessel. Thanks to simple plug-and-play capabilities, the system maps complex processes in a user-friendly manner.
For example, the IAS automatically controls the trim and heel of the vessel via the valve control of the ballast tanks.
Automatic functions for cooling and standby pumps using various criteria
Control of outside lights either individually or in groups and zones through a small touch panel
Predefined custom logic or advanced automation functions according to requirements
The SCHOTTEL PowerControl system reliably controls the generation and distribution of electrical power on board. This ensures that sufficient power is available at all times for ship operation, especially for propulsion and manoeuvring. The efficient use of the generators is controlled according to demand and an automated blackout prevention avoids loss of power as far as possible or restores the power supply quickly in an emergency.
Detection, prevention and recovery
Tripping of low-priority consumers to avoid blackout
Status diagnostics from all components in the system
