Datum Hawk

The future of Condition Monitoring is here!

Datum Hawk provides condition based real-time monitoring of a vessel’s engine, along with every cylinder.

Combined with our fuel mass flow meters, you can now display and monitor real-time specific fuel oil consumption (SFOC) measurements for optimal marine engine efficiency.

What is Datum Hawk?

Datum Hawk is an advanced self-learning condition based monitoring system, capable of analysing each individual cylinder of the engine from the dynamic torque signature. Coupled with the Datum Shaft Power Meter, Datum Hawk represents the ultimate sensor system for real-time condition-based ship monitoring, allowing for sharply-focused preventative maintenance, thereby providing savings of both time and money.

Datum Hawk is a “Smart”, intelligent system, capable of carrying out the torsional signature analysis of main engine(s), auxiliary engine(s) and diesel generator(s), giving a true insight into the vessel’s mechanical health.

Datum Hawk – Features and Benefits

Datum Hawk analyses the dynamic torque from engine output shafts, identifying and quantifying individual cylinder actions, as well as changes in the engine dynamics, related to potential failure modes.

Predictive Maintenance

Live Monitoring of each cylinder enables defects and changes in the engine performance to be identified before an event occurs.

Engine Profiling

All Engines have their own Unique Profile. Datum Hawk identifies each cylinder & records the Engine Profile from the Torque Signature at 2,000 samples per second.

24/7 Condition Based Monitoring

A quantum leap in shaft power measurement, Datum Hawk enables Live monitoring of the engine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with data that is simple to interpret and display.

AI & Machine Learning Techniques

The self-learning methodology, capable of predicting events in advance of any critical failures, is developed to reduce vessel and engine down-time and optimise ship propulsion efficiency.

Fuel Consumption (SFOC)

When combined with Fuel Flow Meters, Datum Hawk can display real-time Specific Fuel Oil Consumption (g/kWh), essential data for optimal vessel performance.

Fuel Saving

Datum Hawk enables the engine to be run at peak performance, reducing Fuel Usage and therefore Emission Levels.

Here’s How It Helped Others

“Datum Hawk is expected to provide a breakthrough change in the market, allowing for integrated decision support for marine engine condition assessment, as well as providing data analysis. The system will effectively detect engine’s inefficient operation and advise on required maintenance tasks, thus increasing the vessel operational efficiency, reducing operating cost and environmental impact.”

– Dr Gerasimos Theotokatos, Naval Architecture Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde
