BOSS™ is the brand for the monitoring product line of DMC Dynamics. Each application monitors one of the ship’s specific technical segments real time via a touchscreen display with integrated software.
Each product from this line can upload to the online BOSS™ platform and will provide insight into the condition of the system being monitored, using the vessel’s sensors. Data can be logged and transferred to the cloud to facilitate remote inspections, analyses and precautionary measures via smartphone or tablet by e.g. the vessel operator. DMC Service – when authorised – can check the monitored system(s) at any time to initiate maintenance or repairs.
Calculates the steering behaviour, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption per trip. It furthers the captain’s consciousness of sailing behaviour to advance fuel savings. Explicitly developed for inland waterways.
- BOSS™ Oil Quality Monitoring (OQM)
Measures the oil condition of hydraulic systems, thus enabling the reliable anticipation of servicing and/or replacement.
- BOSS™ Stern Force Measurement (SFM)
Measures lift and drag to calculate the best rudder angle, in order to avoid stall moments. Displaying the optimal rudder angle/rudder force ratio, it promotes course-keeping and fuel savings.
- BOSS™ Alarm Monitoring System (AMS)
Continuously monitoring the status of all main systems, AMS – which is configurated to class and IMO requirements – is indispensable. The touchscreen panel allows a rapid response from the bridge or wheelhouse, promoting safer sailing.
- BOSS™ Bearing Clearance Measurement System (BCM)
Through constant measuring of the neck and carrier bearing clearance between the rudder trunk and rudder stock, wear is noticed in a timely fashion. Predictive maintenance will prevent downtime and unforeseen costs and delays during scheduled inspections.
- BOSS™ Data Log Function (DLF)
Automatic logging of the data from all the aforementioned BOSS™ applications is conditional for effective reporting and trend analysing. DLF delivers exactly what you want these other products to tell you. The fuel savings or carbon emissions per trip? Just one push of a button.
- BOSS™ DMC Cloud Connect (DCC)
DCC is the appropriate instrument to access the logged data of all the BOSS™ tools. DCC links the logged monitoring with user platforms in the cloud, where data can be accessed at all times via an http link or VPN. It helps fleet owners and shipping companies to have better understanding of the monitored systems onboard.
