The InteliDrive DCU Marine is an engine controller designed specially to meet the demanding needs of the marine market, providing a high level of performance coupled with extensive communication capabilities an incorporating hardwired safety functions and primary/secondary power switching.
The controller is easily integrated into the ship’s control system and takes on board the full communication capability with electronic engines. ComAp developed this capability for their market leading gen-set controllers through the use of J1939 and redundant J1587 communication buses.
This engine specific approach enables InteliDrive DCU Marine to communicate fully with the engine’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU), delivering a greater range of values and most importantly delivering all diagnostic information in intelligible plain text, instead of potentially misleading cryptic codes or flashing lights.
The unit provides users with a highly flexible solution, featuring configurable inputs and output allowing the controller to be customized to particular application or requirement .
