Oceanic Systems will be showcasing its latest technological advancement, Poseidon, at boot Düsseldorf 2019. The new system monitors and controls the vessel’s data, as well as allowing full user customisation – a unique selling point for the market.

At the heart of Poseidon is the compact computer unit with a powerful Quad Core Processor and heat pipe technology, with no moving parts to ensure durability in all marine environments. This system controls and monitors systems including, but not limited to, tank levels, engines, AC power and digital switching and DC power and digital switching. It also controls and monitors temperature, bilge and fire detection systems, cameras, weather information and navigation information.

The manufacturer describes the customisation ability as limitless: the user can change the background of the displays, move, add and delete controls. The Poseidon library provides a range of pre-installed options to starts users off and the system uses 'drag and drop' technology, ensuring simple user configuration throughout.

Poseidon can support up to two primary helm displays and up to eight secondary displays elsewhere in the vessel across the network, all available from Oceanic Systems as BlackGlass high-resolution touchscreen displays. The displays also use capacitive touch, sunlight readability and night-vision settings.

Perhaps the most important benefit of Poseidon is its remote access feature. This means that users can connect to the Poseidon system wherever they are; by mobile, tablet or PC. The system has optional PIN access, to set different levels of permissions to its users and control who can see what displayed data or control systems.
