Delta-sistems’ outlook on ship’s technology can be summarized in two words: no frills.
Our present electronics design reflects that outlook. However, having listened to clients carefully ,we are now developing some extras, that will be offered as an option. These are a CANBUS connection; for system monitoring in the chief engineers quarters and a PLC (programmable logic controller); to control a large number of transducers from one point, eg sluice gates or similar large objects.
One component of our electronics design program that is essential to our philosophy is the development of a new PCB version, which will be able to withstand a short circuit in the transducer cable. These short circuits are now the most frequent reason to have to change a PCB. We aim at a PCB design that is so robust, that even this will not be needed anymore.
