Deutz listens to engines

Users of the system can stipulate the operating range, and prevent theft, of their machinery; if the limit is exceeded, a warning signal is emitted or a text message is sent to the owner.

Deutz has developed a telemetry system for industrial engines that it says allows the engine and all machinery to be constantly evaluated in real time, optimizing maintenance planning and reducing downtimes. By constantly monitoring engine and machine use and availability, customers can identify excess capacities and improve the efficiency of their vehicle fleets.

GPS transmits positional data via a controller that is attached to the engine. Using a CAN bus or digital/analog inputs, the controller records engine data such as speed, operating hours, and oil or fuel levels and transmits it at configurable intervals by Global Packet Radio Service to a central server. The server receives the engine data and prepares it for Internet access. The data can be read and evaluated on any computer anywhere in the world with access to the Internet.

The telematics work bi-directionally, providing remote access to defined functions as well as analyzing and monitoring the machine. It is compatible with non-Deutz engines.

The system can also be used to optimize the entire scheduling process because positional data and the equipment’s status are available to the user at all times.

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
