Control & Monitoring Systems

Viking Systems

The Viking Traction Control unit is designed for the railway environment and housesRe Control Panel
the following main components:

  • Viking Digital Controller ECU
  • Speed switch pcb
  • Protections module
  • Interface circuitry

Viking Traction software is tailored to meet the needs of the engine and the
locomotive. All engine management functions are programmed in and there is the additional safety of hardwired shutdowns.

The engine protection provided by Viking Traction solutions provides de-rating with
respect to measured parameters; this helps to ensure that the locomotive can
continue to operate safely even if a fault is detected.

Viking 35 in panelAs an additional feature Viking traction can interface with remote monitoring; thus
allowing operational problems to be viewed and diagnosed at the depot.

Customers for these systems are not only located in the UK and Europe but around the world; from Brazil to India and Ireland to Australia.

Products

REGULATEURS EUROPA has the facilities to design, engineer and manufacture control systems to meet the customer specific requirements for diesel driven generator sets.

The control systems are designed using the latest PLC and HMI technology and, where appropriate, incorporate the field bus networks and serial communications in an attempt to reduce the amount of installation cabling.

The functionality of single control panels or complete control systems is tailored to meet the customers’ and end users’ needs:

  • Local engine control panels
  • Remote engine control panels
  • Control desks
  • Remote start/stop controls
  • Speed/volts control
  • Alternator excitation control
  • Manual/auto synchronising
  • Generator electrical protection
  • Alarm indication
  • Electrical data acquisition
  • Breaker status indication
  • Digital/analogue instrumentation
  • Mimic display

Monitoring

Re ScreenREGULATEURS EUROPA Monitoring and Surveillance systems can be as simple or complex as the application demands. From simple LED and LCD displays to
comprehensive touch screen based systems and ship wide monitoring.

It is normal RE practice to keep monitoring and safety as separate functions to avoid common mode failures that could endanger the machinery. Whilst most applications require digital and/or screen based monitoring displays REGULATEURS EUROPA can offer a range of solutions including direct reading local engine panels.

Trino Vibration Monitoring Systems for Rotating Machinery

Trino DetectThe Trino vibration monitoring system is a valuable product within the range of monitoring packages supplied by RE. Trino has been designed to reduce costly failures of turbochargers and other rotating machinery (e.g. gearboxes, discharge pumps and fans).

  • Continuous vibration based condition monitoring
  • Simple onboard system initiating 2-stage alarms for multiple failure conditions
  • Automatically adapts to varying machinery speed
  • A single unit can monitor up to 2 turbochargers plus 6 additional rotating devices
  • Ship to shore transmission of alarm & performance data
  • Low maintenance/high reliability

SeaMACS Integrated Automation System

SeaMACS IAS control screenScreen based monitoring systems are popular in many marine applications.
RE can custom design screens and/or integrate SeaMACS monitoring displays
from their sister company HEINZMANN Data Process.

  • Scalable system for monitoring of vessel machinery and associated
    equipment.
  • Interfaces for trends, reports, alarms and processes, optionally
    extendable by video surveillance and more.
  • Customizable, flexible architecture for scalability and redundant
    system for outmost reliability.

Generator Controls

standby generatorsREGULATEURS EUROPA can provide controls for marine generators ranging from those used for diesel/electric propulsion, as main auxiliaries or just standby units.
RE is particularly well known for providing load sharing systems and for complex combined generator/propulsion solutions as required by large suction dredgers.

At the heart of many generator control panels is the Viking35 ECU which combines the engine management functions together with multi engine electrical and/or mechanical load sharing, via load measure transducers.

The typical panel shown includes all of the necessary I/O to interface with the engine, generator and ships systems. The Windows based PC software provides an easy interface with the generator control panel; allowing performance to be monitored and parameters changed by authorised personnel.

Specialised applications such as front line military vessels require hardware designed to withstand the adverse environment. Regulateurs Europa is experienced in the design and manufacture of integrated control and monitoring panels designed to perform in ships where vibration and shock etc are a major factor.

Propulsion Controls

The REGULATEURS EUROPA Propulsion Control Panels (PCPs) are a fully integrated governing and propulsion control unit providing a cost effective solution for Fixed Pitch Propeller (FPP), Controllable Pitch Propeller (CPP), and water jet marine applications.

Within the single bulkhead mounted enclosure is the sophisticated Viking35 digital governor, with flexible propulsion controls and essential hardwired safety circuits. This leaves the scope and the level of monitoring specifically to suit the customer's requirements. Designed to fully meet the requirements of the various marine classification
societies it already applications as diverse as fast military patrol vessels, luxury yachts, fast ferries and commercial shipping.

In addition to speed governing the PCP can also provide the logic for starting, stopping, clutch control and engine protections such as slowdowns and hardwired shutdowns. The fundamental control functions are programmed with customer specific parameters designed to suit and protect the engine. These parameters are accessible via the user friendly operator interface display which allows setting up and tuning while the engine is running. Local manual control is obtainable via front mounted switches and push buttons.

In addition to the engine's controls the propulsion control panel can provide the control for external facilities such as:
• Jacket water heaters • Exhaust flap changeover • Priming pumps • Stabilisers

Complete Solutions

Building further on the PCP, REGULATEURS EUROPA can produce a complete range of solutions for marine engine control and monitoring, tailored for the vessel and its application. Based on the depth of knowledge within the company, these can range from standard systems to bespoke solutions to meet the customer’s specific requirements.

Propulsion Systems

The PCP is designed to interface with proprietary water jet and controllable pitch propeller systems. To complete the package REGULATEURS EUROPA can also offer various control stations such as bridge, open bridge/bridge wing and/or machinery control consoles. The engine control stations would normally have instrumentation, start and stop facilities, ships telegraph and monitoring systems or other features built to classification society requirements. If the system is fixed pitch command levers and transfer of control can also be provided.
