The SELCO EngineEye system with unique sensor performance

Benefit from long-time quality measurements of the engine combustion process with the first handheld high performance cylinder pressure indicator made by SELCO. The new system is specially made with focus on usability and performance.

The SELCO EngineEye is the MIP system for all large engines no matter if they are running with HFO / MDO or even LPG or natural gas. As long as they are equipped with an indicator cock. Whether for the demanding marine market with harsh conditions on ships or for the power plant market, the SELCO EngineEye will be the trusted tool for all engineers. It will help provide information for misfiring analysis and cylinder balancing of the engine in a higher quality than previously seen.

Due to a unique sensor technology based on the crystal GaPO4 with excellent linearity and extremely low thermal drift, the new system allows for long term pressure readings. The sensor may be left on the open indicator cock for hours. This gives the possibility of tuning the engine while measuring continously.

The “Safe Pressure Sensor” design is another feature of the SELCO EngineEye. The patented technology ensures that the sensor will stay sealed even in the unlikely event of a membrane collapse; this allows for uninterrupted operation of the engine, with maximum safety of the operator.

The special built-in charge amplifier sensor technology prevents problems with plugs & cables, known from other earlier products. This will dramatically minimize the “later-on-costs”.

Further, the crank angle can be measured with a newly designed crank angle sensor belt with the highest resolution and applicable for all shaft diameters. Due to the unique design of the crank angle sensor belt, installation can easily be made by ships’ crews themselves, reducing expensive installation costs.

Automatic sensor recognition and automatic synchronization with PC software allows for safe and easy use.

Transfer of readings for diagnostics

It will be more and more essential to have reliable data about the engine condition ashore for analyzing and comparison purposes. The EngineEye system is delivered with a powerful software incl. TDC & ISO correction. Data is visualized on graphs and will become available trended by time.

The software displays the information and the results can be compared with historic results or with other reference values. The results may be stored, printed and can be e-mailed ashore. A major benefit is the possibility of sending data values from the ship to the superintendence for deeper diagnostics.

The new solution is easy to install and needs no maintenance. All together the SELCO EngineEye is an intuitive system giving high resolution data that are required for cost efficient and safe engine operation.

Strong and easy with no service demand
SELCO EngineEye will assist in preventing unplanned downtime. Even though the system is very reliable, has a rugged design and a self-explanatory user interface, service and advise is as natural as future upgrades.

Functionality checks can be easily done on board by use of standard tools. Simply check on your own the accuracy on board. And no regular calibration procedure is necessary. This makes costly return of the instrument to the manufacturer. Unnecessary however, on the other hand it will of course be a service offered by SELCO.

This new tool will assist the vessel in becoming green. Ensure optimized engine settings and minimize the downtime of your valuable engine. Improve the engineer toolbox and include the EngineEye!
