In August 2018 commissioning of the LMB2100dual on the Taiwanese hydrographic survey vessel Hidrografia 5 took place on the shipyard Lung Teh in Taiwan. Lyngaa Marine Aps. supplied the bridge control system for this vessel and participated in the commissioning.
Being equipped with two Caterpilar C18 Acert in the engine room, space left for auxiliary equipment was limited in this hydrographic vessel.
Together with the high demand for interface to engines LMB2100 was the perfect choice for this vessel.
Benefitting from the engine J1939 interface, transferring all engine conditions directly to the bridge control system, and a direct PWM speed setting signal. Cables between engine and bridge control system is limited to two wires and at the same time giving a robust and rapid interface protecting the engine from overload.
Despite the size of the vessel the bridge control system was delivered with full approval from Bureau Veritas.
Yard management was very impressed with the number of options, easy installation and programming. But most of all how easy it is to operate.
