ensure the availability and the quality of the data you get from your vessels
METIS SHIP CONNECT
Data Acquisition as a Service
METIS is the only company offering Data Acquisition as a service. We do not just sell yet another piece of onboard hardware. With METIS Ship Connect we provide an integrated solution that ensures trouble-free data acquisition — keeping everything running smoothly is an integral part of your service contract with us. METIS Ship Connect forms the solid, reliable data acquisition layer on which we base all further processing and analysis.
METIS sets new standards in automated data acquisition by implementing MQTT and protobuf
MQTT, the latest and most hitech messaging protocol for the internet of things, is extremely light requiring minimal network bandwidth while at the same time provides increased reliability, scalability, security and the ability to offer true Real-Time monitoring of the vessel performance.
Protobuf ( Protocol Buffers) is a Google developed, open-source, language- and platform-neutral mechanism for serialising structured data, useful in developing programs to communicate with each other over a network and for managing and storing big volumes of data.
Wireless Intelligent Collectors
Robust & Intelligent IoT devices designed specifically for the maritime industry
The cornerstone of METIS Ship Connect is our custom designed and manufactured Wireless Integrated Collector (WIC). WIC devices connect directly to the machinery, instruments and/or sensors they monitor. WICs have wired and wireless networking options for minimizing dependence on cabling thus simplifying installation. When in relative proximity to each other, WICs support self-organizing, ad hoc wireless sub-networks that are interconnected through the vessel LAN backbone. WIC devices are designed and manufactured under METIS specifications and supervision. The final topology chosen depends on vessel equipment arrangement and project requirements.
Onboard equipment that WICs are most commonly connected to and key monitored quantities include:
- TORQUE METER
- ME FO FLOW METER
- DG FO FLOW METER
- AUX BOILER FLOW METER
- ME RPM
- ME T/C RPM
- DGs OUTPUT POWER
- TANK LEVEL MONITORING
- AIR TEMPERATURE
- AIR HUMID.
- ATM. PRESSURE
- BWT SYSTEM
We are proud to have the most thorough compatibility list with sensors and measurement equipment
Certified by Lloyd's Register
At METIS Cybertech we are proud that the entire range of WIC devices enabling our data acquisition service offering has received the prestigious Lloyd’s Register Type Approval Certificate for marine, offshore and industrial applications. Our customers can be confident that they are provided with a reliable platform conforming to recognized industry quality standards, International Conventions and Lloyd’s Register strictest testing procedures.
