The IMES GmbH in Germany, is the leading specialist in the field of combustion engine cylinder pressure and data acquisition systems. In times where emission regulations continue to tighten, optimised engine performance to reduce NOx and CO2 is of paramount importance. Our high-quality products represent reliability, robustness, durability and long-term accuracy. The sophisticated sensors, electronic indicators and combustion monitoring systems are employed on a wide range of diesel-, gas- and dual-fuel engines, on ships and locomotives and in power cogeneration plants and pipeline compressor stations all around the world.
Our cylinder pressure sensors, electronic indicators and combustion monitoring systems offer solutions for engine monitoring and diagnosis for the maritime market.
All our sensors offer a digital electronic with event storing. They are designed for a minimum of 16,000 operating hours and they have a very good thermodynamic performance. Our products received Marine Type Approval from all significant international classification societies such as Bureau Veritas, DNV, ABS, Lloyd’s Register, Korean Register and Class NK.
The engine analyser EPM-XPplus-vibro is designed for additional vibration measurements on engines. The vibration sensor will be electrically connected on one side to the hand-held device via a cable and on the other side via a magnetic holder to the injector or pump. This offers advanced diagnostic options for marine engines. The vibration sensor records the point of lifting and landing of the injector needle as well as the beginning and ending of the fuel supply by the injection pump.
Cylinder pressure sensor for on-line combustion control on diesel- and gas engines for increasing engine performance and optimised engine control.
· Extreme robust against high dp/dt
· Designed life expectancy of 16,000 h
· Digital electronic with event storing
· Very good thermodynamic performance
· Protection class IP69
Closed loop control on internal combustion engines e.g. knock detection, cylinder balancing, MIP calculation, start of combustion, NOx control
The Combustion controlled systems CCM is designed for pressure control in closed loop systems. It includes a high speed data acquisition unit (CCM) for up to 12 cylinders, permanently installed cylinder pressure sensors and an advanced visualisation- and performance software.
The data can be transmitted for evaluation directly via LAN / Ethernet to a PC where the CCM software is installed. The software allows an easy collection, management and comparison of engine performance data.
