Yanmar is promoting the implementation of this system to reduce the time crews need to spend on ship management through the use of ICT and by proposing appropriate maintenance based on the actual usage conditions, towards safe navigation of the seas.
Overview of Connected Functionality
USB port on the SCR system control panel
In response to the demand for compliance with emission regulations, this SCR system control panel provides engine and SCR system management in one package to comply with Nox emission regulations. Furthermore, the SCR system control panel can store system operating data in the cloud by connecting a smartphone to the system via a USB port on the control panel, enabling centralized management of performance diagnosis data.
Centralized information management via smartphones
When a smartphone with the dedicated “YANMAR SHIPSWEB SMART-LINK” (*2) application installed is connected to the system, it will link to operating data, including engine data. Then, when the system is online, it will connect to the “YANMAR SHIPSWEB” cloud service provided by Yanmar Engineering Co. Even in an offline environment, the application can access stored performance diagnosis data and periodic maintenance notifications can be received, allowing parts and maintenance to be arranged in advance, supporting stable operation planning.
