Volvo Penta Aquamatic Joystick Inboard Performance System Marine Innovation

by Rusti 2011-08-05 17:44

Volvo Penta - The Aquamatic storyInnovation meets standardization from Inboard Performance System (IPS) which is is a complete system, from helm to propellers, to Aquamatic Joystick to Marine Command Center Networking unification of sensor arrays, to control and gear components and power boat sub-systems. Marine systems come  from diversity of marine manufacturers and most successful ones are based on NMEA 2000 standard.  The National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) is balanced and solid standardization body which provides major cross-industry guidelines including the marine vessel realm, for power boats and sail yachts on-board installations of electrical and electronics monitoring, control and management systems - the Marine Network Control Centers. 

Leading inventors, innovators and suppliers of marine electronics for this challenging market find it important to synchronize the innovative designs with the NMEA 2000 standard. For marine innovators, it is important to keep the new inventions unique yet compatible with the existing marine command center nervous systems, such that the new and improved marine power control and navigational guidance on-board systems which include dozens if not hundreds major components. They range from  Aquamatic Joystick Docking and Dynamic Positioning system to  power boat sensors array, to  chartplotters, compass control unit (CCU) systems, BlueChart chartplotters, transducers, fish-finders, sonars, GPS antennas and GPS navigators, are easily inter-connectable to share flows of information stemming from the unified marine vessel control and data flow standard, the NMEA 2000. 

Major marine engine, drive-train, electrical and electronic equipment and marine command center devices and systems manufacturers such as Volvo Penta, Lowrance, Garmin, Furuno, Lowrance, Raymarine and other innovation driven market leaders are working along the lines of NMEA 2000® certifications. This way the vessel captain can have a system built and enhanced that is compatible with all major on-board sensors, control gears and electronics.

Marine Network display devices, such as chartplotters with transducers and sounders,  fish-finders connect to the NMEA 2000® networking backbone for the vessel captain to conveniently monitor power boat and sail yacht systems, via sensors sending vital information anywhere the chartplotter is mounted, captain's console, a flybridge tower or vessel bow.

Volvo (VOLVY) Aquamatic Joystick Dynamic Positioning System involves the human to machine to GPS navigator advanced control interface. The human-machine-GPS interface holds marine vessel stationary at a GPS guided pinpoint precise location on the water. The NMEA enabled Marine Command Center Network uses GPS orchestrated coordination data to further synchronize the captain's will and directions coupled with GPS information via the Dynamic Positioning System allowing extremely advanced control of the Inboard Performance System of the boat. 

The Marine Network Backbone reaches every section of the vessel where data streams linking and communication is necessary It couples through T-Connectors and NMEA to proprietary, or NMEA to Controller Area Network "CAN-bus" adapters to fuel flow sensors, mufti-function gauge, sonar head units, GPS navigational devices, chartplotter displays, other NMEA 2000 and CANbus data providers or consumers. Same backbone is used to get powered from the marine vessel 12-Volt DC on-board power source. 

Modern NMEA 2000 compatible chart plotter embeds the boat Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) functions to display engine and boat data. The chartplotter software application communicates with boat sensors array. The software application is tuned to determine most important data, warnings and alarms to be immediately processed and rendered.

NMEA compatible sophisticated sensors array help the vessel captain keep an eye on speed and depth readings, vessel's engine tachometer/RPM and engine hours, coolant temperature, battery voltage, turbo and oil pressure, trim position, water depth, surface temperature, water and fuel tanks levels and vessel rudder position. With such an innovative approach, expanding a boat's network to add sensors and/or displays is more convenient, less expensive and allow to use mulch-vendor equipment on the affordable core NMEA 2000® based backbone system.
