Our Exciting New ‘Connect’ Monitoring System

We have recently launched our new Type approved by DNV ‘Connect’ Monitoring System suitable for all tank gauging applications and which is MED certified for use on passenger vessels for flood detection monitoring.

The new Connect system is based on our established VPM central monitors, with the addition of an enhanced central processing unit, capable of interfacing with all types of input signals. These can either be connected directly via RS485 communication to the PSM APT1000 intelligent level transmitters, or via interface cards which incorporate safety barriers for IS compliance and accept signals from a 4-20mA instrument.

All signal processing and data calculations are undertaken within the Connect central processing unit and multiple input ports ensure virtually limitless expandability. Tank tables, trim and heel correction, specific gravity, overpressure, temperature, and all other related parameters are considered to provide accurate real-time display tank status.

When Connect is combined with PSM Scanjet’s comprehensive instrumentation range for level detection and monitoring, we can deliver a complete solution for all applications.

We have already received several system orders for applications as diverse as fishing vessels, naval oil tankers and a land-based tank farm, demonstrating Connect’s design aim of being a versatile and scalable monitoring solution.

Information from Connect can be displayed in multiple formats, dependent on which is most suited to your application, such as tabular, bar graph, tank plan and hybrid views. Tanks may also be grouped with dedicated alarm pages showing warnings and status at all times.

Displays are interfaced to the central processing unit via an ethernet connection and display formatting is completely flexible depending on your specific application needs. In effect, the central processing unit acts as a web server and the displays as clients, and any display hardware which can run a web browser may be used. We offer a suitable range of displays, each with a small processing hub, to handle ethernet communications, without the need for a costly computer at each location.

We believe that our new Connect system is an exciting addition to our range and offers a complete tailored solution for a wide range of applications.
