Kessler-Ellis Products (KEP) – the manufacturer of industry-leading type approved displays and computers, announced today its new range of Intelligent Vessel Management Systems, the KEP IVMS. Used to manage critical assets and information in the most organized and functional way possible, the new KEP IVMS systems gives commercial vessel operators and crew complete monitoring and control, and the real-time information and alerts critical to keeping an organization’s assets running smoothly on the water.

The KEP IVMS is available in three configurations, the IVMS, IVMS Pro and IVMS Unlimited and offers solutions for any application and budget. At the heart of the systems are Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), which offer the flexibility and customization needed to manage, control and monitor a wide array of onboard systems. Easy to install, the space efficient and easy-to-program PLCs can be quickly retyped if there is a change in circuit design or sequence, saving considerable time and cost.

“Using our extensive experience in automation and control products, we developed the open platform, fully scalable, customizable KEP IVMS range without the inherent issues of other products on the market such as proprietary hardware, predetermined configuration choices and node limitations,” said Scott Russell, senior applications engineer, KEP Marine. “Our vessel management systems allow complete monitoring and control of any number of sensors, and electrical and electronic devices on board.”

The standard IVMS package provides a wealth of information and is not restricted like other solutions. It is designed specifically for vessels under 50 feet and includes a display, control panel, terminal block kit and choice of 16 monitoring selections. Practical yet full featured, the IVMS is used to monitor and manage the most critical onboard information on the bundled KEP sunlight-viewable 7-inch touchscreen display. The IVMS Pro includes all of the features
of the IVMS package as well as an expanded HMI software package and additional monitoring selections that enhance the system’s capabilities. IVMS Pro allows for multiple station interfaces, remote viewing, full engine monitoring and switching of electrical circuits. The IVMS Unlimited is the ideal system for offshore and long-range boaters. Featuring customizable alarm monitoring and control capabilities with an industry leading graphics selection, the Unlimited system can provide monitoring and control of all systems on a boat for even the largest vessels with up to 10,000 controllable measuring points.

Using logic controllers, the IVMS system supports automatic control sequences and can be used to manage any number of systems including pumps, bilges, carbon dioxide detectors, smoke detectors and actuators, to name a few. They can even be set up to automatically take corrective action. The system is structured on an Ethernet-based platform and supports most standard industry communication protocols and remote I/O, which facilitates easy connection to third-party systems and hardware. Users can interact with the IVMS system using interfacepanels, PC based touchscreens, and remote VPN connectivity to access information such as historical logging, trending and reporting to allow owners, operators and service technicians to view detailed information about the operations of the vessel. The system can generate SMS texts and or emails based on event triggers or alarms.
