CMR: Monitoring is Control

CMR, which offers specialized systems for monitoring industrial and marine engine parameters, introduces the Clarine line to the marine industry, including the Clarine Marine Rack 101, which provides several advantages to shipbuilders. CMR's Clarine Marine Rack 101 is a centralized device designed to eliminate the need for separate monitoring and alarm units.

Designed to mount flush in the wheelhouse console, the Rack 101 features standard display formats for a traditional "console look" on a 12-in. (305 mm) LCD screen. It also has an integrated logic functions and can replace PLCs on workboats, OSVs and crew boats and tugs. Additionally, a black box function records all monitored events for remote viewing. Clarine monitoring systems enable acquisition, processing and LCD display of parameters transmitted on a CAN-Open network. This eliminates most of the complicated wiring on the ship and reduces labor during construction and long-term maintenance. Completely self-contained, the Rack 101 system is designed for use in harsh environments and can be integrated into any CAN-Open network. Designed for local and networked monitoring of engines, gen-sets and the complete alarm list, the Clarine system processes up to 200 analog channels and generates an alarm when any of several specified thresholds is exceeded.
