Vessel Monitoring Unit

The Vessel Monitoring Unit (VMU) records detailed information on a vessel’s motion, position and performance, through various parameters including pitch, roll, yaw and accelerations in 3 axes.
With sampling up to 1000 Hz, all data is recorded alongside GPS data to include SOG, COG, time and position. Engine data from the vessels NMEA canbus
network can be included.
Installation is simple. The internal GPS antenna and self calibrating sensors begin recording to the solid state memory when the unit is powered.
Up to 16 Remote sensors can be mounted on vessel structure or equipment to measure shock and vibration in different locations.

Remote Sensors

Multiple sensors can positioned in the vessel at required locations to record accelerations in 3 axis. Results are recorded to the VMU and synchronised with data from other modules. Connected via a CANBUS network, 16 remote sensors can be added to each vessel.

  • 3 Axis accelerometer +/- 16g

  • 1000 Hz sampling with bandpass filtering

  • 1, 25 or 100 Hz recording of peak values*

  • 65 x 55 x 35 mm

  • 150 grams

  • IP67

Helm Display

LED indicators provide feedback to the skipper on their current impact exposure levels or how close they are to the vessels operational limits.

  • 6 LEDs individually controlled by VMU

  • Daylight readable

  • Customisable thresholds

  • Acknowledgement button

  • Low profile, self adhesive membrane panel

  • 58mm x 42mm

  • IP67


Crew Tracking ID Cards

Wireless ID cards allow the VMU to record which crew members are onboard the vessel during each transit. This data is uploaded with the vessel data.

  • Wireless – 50m range

  • Autonomous operation

  • 1 year battery life

  • Credit card size

  • IP67
