RH Marine introduces next-generation ship automation systems


(ROTTERDAM, Netherlands) — RH Marine introduced its next generation alarm, monitoring and control systems (AMCS) on Tuesday at Europort Rotterdam. The new Rhodium AMCS is the successor of the widely used UniMACS and FT NavVision automation systems. Being completely modular and scalable in terms of configuration and complexity, the future-ready Rhodium AMCS is just as suitable for large naval vessels or megayachts as it is for tenders or ferries.

By using a mesh network topology (providing multiple paths from sensor to workstation the data can follow), multi-server system architecture, embedded software and extremely rigorous testing, the Rhodium AMCS is a highly reliable and a durable foundation for your vessel's automation. A wide range of data security measures guarantee the safe and secure operation of the automation system.

The modern vector-based graphic HMI allows for dynamic, interactive and intuitive interaction with the ship’s systems. The user needs a clear, unambiguous and easy way to inspect the system and all components connected to it. The Rhodium AMCS features a highly flexible graphic user interface. It features a large set of elements for use on viewers, each with their own strengths and intended purpose. The runtime configurable Rhodium AMCS saves valuable time during the commissioning and trial periods of a vessel.

The Rhodium AMCS is a modular and fully scalable automation solution to accommodate any vessel of any size. Rhodium AMCS is made up of a wide array of readily available hardware and software components. The exact configuration and combination of these components is uniquely tailored to the client’s specific needs.

The Rhodium AMCS is available in four versions: light, basic, full and extended. Each version offers a specific set of functionalities and features, compliant to the applicable rules and regulations.
