PROPULSION CONTROL SYSTEMS At Wrtsil we strive constantly to do what is best for the customer. This includes optimising the lifecycle value of their installations by offering precisely what they need; a promise we can deliver on since we provide the marine industry’s most complete portfolio of products, integrated solutions and global services. By enabling operational efficiency, environmental excellence, fuel flexibility and 24/7 support, we help our customers find a shorter route to robust growth and greater profitability. This is why

today Wrtsil solutions are onboard one in every three ships worldwide. The Wrtsil Propulsion Control System (PCS) is a comprehensive system of levers and touch-screen interfaces, designed to suit all the possible propulsion configurations of a modern ship. Wrtsil Protouch, the human interface of the Wrtsil Propulsion Control System, represents the state of the art answer to market demands for modern and compact design control devices. With its safe and intuitive arrangement it gives the power to the user.

Wrtsil Protouch is the winner of Red Dot Design Award, Best of the Best 2013. THE MOST ADVANCED PROPULSION CONTROL SYSTEM

Compact design: The components to be installed at the operator stations of the bridge and engine control room are interconnected by field bus technology (CAN OPEN) and thus require a minimum of cables. The whole system footprint is reduced significantly allowing the designers more flexibility to place the propulsion components according to their ergonomic needs and meeting the functional requirements of the complete

operator station. Modularity/flexibility: The extended modularity of hardware and graphic user interfaces offers a flexible solution for any vessel layout. The system fits all the propulsion products and, as a result, all types of vessels. The system configuration is designed to meet the requirements of redundancy and independency for main class merchant configurations as well as more complex off shore applications. Safety: By removing the visual challenge of finding critical information in large panels of buttons and gauges, and by giving the user relevant

information when needed, the system improves safety, both at sea and in port. In case of a control transfer the levers are automatically lined-up enabling operators to keep focused on their navigational tasks. The main propulsion levers are provided with back-up facilities integrated in the same lever allowing the operator KEY BENEFITS The Wartsila Protouch solid ergonomics enables flexible bridge arrangements optimized for the operator position Main display with bracket

to respond adequately and control smoothly in case the back-up system needs to be activated. User

friendly, Intuitive operations: By the means of the modern displays, with touch- screen technology, the operator can easily get all the functions and information handy, fully and easily under user’s control. The system will guide the user when a more complex sequence or action is required. Immediate feedback is given also by the led colour on the lever, showing the current status of the selected propulsor. Simpler installation and maintenance: this PCS is fully pre-configurable and thus minimizes installation time and costs, simplifies commissioning and reduces maintenance needs.

Integration with other systems: The system enables easy integration via serial interfaces towards other systems at bridge level. Protocols like MODBUS RTU RS485 and NMEA 0183 are supported for VDR, IAMCS and centralized dimming. The system is suitable and can be adapted to control competitor (OEM) propulsors.
