Secure Marine Automation

The alarm and monitoring system

The alarm and monitoring system facilitates complex monitoring and control tasks

Whether workboat or yacht, for skippers and technically responsible persons immediate access to vessel information and functions is elementary. The operator-oriented, adaptable user interface on Marex AMC provides a structured and cleary arranged access to all the information. The monitoring system is classified, and thus also suitable for use in commercial shipping and offshore applications.

Every propulsion aggregate, from the generator to the main propulsion machinery, requires a reliable safety system. The Marex AMC (Alarm, Monitoring and Control) from Rexroth is a system that facilitates the integration of complex monitoring and control processes. The system is approved by the major classification societies – also as a duty alarm system with an engineer call function for unattended engine room operation.

In addition to monitoring safety-relevant operating data as a decentral, secure data collection system, Marex AMC provides numerous additional functions, even including ship automation with door surveillance and a digital visualization of fire alarms.

If remote control and automation are required on board, Marex AMC can be easily expanded to implement numerous control functions. Examples include a navigation control – also suitable for LED navigation lights – as well as pump control.

Video signals can also be processed in the monitoring system. In this case, the cameras are directly installed in the system and controlled via the system display. Chartplotters and nautical charts can also be integrated in Marex AMC. With these features and functions, Rexroth has expanded its own comprehensive portfolio of powertrain technology.

The system is based on CAN bus technology. This allows data to be individually grouped and shown on the displays of control stations and in control rooms. The displays have an optional capacitive high-resolution touchscreen and – given their transflective properties – can be easily read, even in bright sunlight. Rexroth’s design team can adapt up to 17 customer-specific screens to fit the respective project. This includes integrating application graphics or the customer’s logo on the screen as well as the display of functional diagrams on request if used with navigation control.

Marex AMC is suitable for all high and medium-speed engines, for use on workboats and yachts. Thanks to its exceptional functions, the possibility to implement customer-specific solutions, and a design that fits seamlessly in the bridge, Marex AMC more than fulfills the demands for modern ship engineering.
