DCM

The Data Collection and Monitoring (DCM) unit collects slow and fast signals from the WinGD main engine and other ship machinery. It allows the visualisation of the data, both locally on-board the ship and remotely at the operator’s office.

The first step in the value creation process is to collect the engine and ship data.
The Data Collection and Monitoring (DCM) unit collects slow and fast signals from the WinGD main engine and other ship machinery. 
It allows the visualisation of the data, both locally on-board the ship and remotely at the operator’s office.
The DCM allows data to be sent, using a secure encrypted communication channel, to an external server. The engine and ship data are made available on the WinGD website, accessible by a protected user account. The collected data are stored both on-board and ashore in a database designed for data analytics applications.

The Engine Diagnostic System (EDS) software is installed into the DCM computer, and uses this database to perform the engine diagnostic analyses. DCM enables remote support collaboration between WinGD and the shipping company.

WiDE collects data via DCM which is now installed as standard on all new engines contracted as of January, 2018. DCM can also be retrofitted to older, electronically controlled engines already in operation.
