Seawork welcomes Warwick Control Technologies
The Small Business Enterprise Zone has welcomed Warwick Control Technologies to Seawork for the first time this year, introducing visitors to its specialised marine electronic maintenance service, specifically the X Analyser 3.
Developed from nearly two decades working in other sectors, specifically the car industry, Warwick has chosen Seawork to gain a stronger foothold within the marine industry.
During the show, Warwick has been providing visitors with the case study of luxury Sailing Yacht Galateia. As AN/NMEA2000/J1939/CANopen experts Warwick was assigned to evaluate and troubleshoot the 7 CAN-bus electronic control architecture on the yacht. Whilst undergoing drydock maintenance, the technical team from Warwick performed a full evaluation of the CAN-bus systems on board.
Utilising tools developed by Warwick, a full performance analysis was carried out. There was an assortment of CAN control protocols (NMEA2000, J1939, CANopen and Propriety) implemented to control systems such as navigation, engine controls, sail controls and power management. This helped to determine parameters such as bus load, message timing and failure test response. Warwick successfully determined any anomalies and made recommendations for corrective action.
Whilst there, Warwick Control also provided formal training to crew on all aspects of CAN controlled systems. In this way they were not only able to provide a solution to the customer, but also provide a means for them to find solutions themselves with the knowledge gained.
Richard McLaughlin of Warwick Technologies explained why they’ve made the move to exhibit at Seawork: “We’ve been operating in the marine industry for a few years now but we’ve been looking at working boats and the technology that crosses over. The purpose of Seawork is to try it out and, we’re pleased to say, the response has been good for people who want this kind of specialised technology.”
