E Tech Group announces successful delivery of first two E Touch systems
After discussions with yacht Engineering teams and after a year of development E Tech Group have announced the successful delivery of the first two E Touch systems. The E Touch system is a power management system built to classification society approval.
Using the latest touch screen technology the E Touch system easily allows selection of Generators and Shore supply, controlling seamless transfer and standby Generator start up and control. Constant trending of voltage, frequency and current provides an instant diagnosis should problems occur.
The first two systems were completed using the existing Main Switchboard structure, fitting new components on back plates in the factory and replacing the Switchboard doors for the E Touch layout.
All existing outdated and unsupported control equipment is removed and replaced with new worldwide replaceable components.
Using this concept the Yacht can be kept powered up while the new equipment is assembled and tested keeping changeover times and blackout periods to a minimum. The system is flexible enough to allow for multiple inputs and the software can be custom prepared to suit individual Yachts and Engineers requirements With another three yachts having already ordered the system, two of which are currently in production with another planned for the end of 2012 the E Touch system is proving to be at the forefront of touchscreen control technology.
