Creating data from silent sources
● Not every thing communicates
● Power sources, tank levels etc.
● Creating data for measurement and control
● V² sensors for voltage and temperature
● E² sensors for current, voltage and temperature
● SoC, iBC, Ah and boat energy flows
● Addressable switches provide power control
● Universal language of the Triskel ARGO bus

The engine language
● J1939 CAN bus and the ECU
● Valuable source of data
● Temperature
● Shaft RPM, direction and derived torque
● Fuel consumption
● Engine mode status
● Error conditions
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
The engine data
● Load efficiency control (RPM and fuel)
● Accurate fuel tank level and costs (fuel)
● “Regen” control (RPM and torque)
● Interpreting status and error codes
● C² device translates to the ARGO bus
● Autonomously act on critical data
● Cooling pumps and engine room fans
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
The boat language
● Existing equipment and sensors
● Mixed language communication
● NMEA2000
● NMEA0183
● Seatalk, Mastervolt and PC applications
● RS232/422, USB, CAN, current loop, pulses
● Translated and placed on the ARGO bus
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
The boat data
● GPS location, time, CoG, SoG
● Navigation details and voyage waypoints
● Wind, temperature, rain, humidity, pressure
● Sea temperature, current speed, depth
● Autopilot control
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Energy management module
● Jason the energy management module
● Common format data on the ARGO bus
● Part of an agnostic modular design ethos
● Charging decisions
● Enhances efficiency
● Automation where possible
● Warnings, advice, alarms and safety
● Human interface
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Battery charging
● Lead instead of Lithium are you mad?
● TPPL technology
● Bulk charge: Generator, shore supply
● The finishing charge issue
● Equalisation/conditioning charge
● Battery health
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Controlling efficiency
● Improving engine efficiency
● Low speeds for electric propulsion
● Bulk charge loading control
● Lower total fuel usage
● Predicting events from the data
● Intelligent source selection
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Talking to humans
● Jason’s window to the world
● Boat wide data in a neat interface
● Real time data display becomes a tool
● Boat power flow
● Customise the system with options
● Provide advice, warnings and alarms
● Control remote switches from anywhere
● Web browser based
● Use on a tablet, PC, phone any web device
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Watchdog remote monitor
● Monitor the boat data remotely
● Mobile network or Iridium as telemetry
● Very low power to allow 24/7 operation
● Uses any web enabled device
● Anywhere in the world (or pub)
● Secure access
● Control remote switches from anywhere
● Set limit alarms via email or SMS
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Watchdog for the user
● Over winter monitor
● Check battery health and boat position
● Check weather/sea conditions at the boat
● Start up devices remotely (heating)
● Friends and family voyage tracker
● Burglar alarm
● Data can be updated in near real time
● Or you can be alerted to a preset event
Triskel Marine Ltd www.triskelmarine.co.uk [email protected]
Watchdog for business
● Chartered fleet monitor
● Boat builder customer service
● Monitor live boat data remotely
● Provides a two way diagnostic tool
