TRITON OMD II Central Unit - Compartment-wise visualisation

The central unit covers all tasks with regards to enhanced visualisation of TRITON OMD sensor values, system configuration and interfacing to subordinated systems for alarm and data processing. The unit is designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions occurring in the application area and is best suited for direct installation on the engine or alternatively in the engine room. The central unit can serve up to 16 sensors. Redundant power supply and communication lines ensure uninterrupted system operation. An integrated graphical LCD touchscreen provides the system operator with intuitively arranged status information and the possibility for convenient navigation between different overview and configuration screens.

TRITON OMD II Sensors - The core element of the system

Sensors may be used either in combination with the central unit from HEINZMANN or alternatively as an integral part of a customer proprietary superordinate engine safety system. The sensor represents the core elements of the TRITON Oil Mist Detection System. It consists of two complementary parts: the sampling feed with integrated test facility and the sensor body with measuring arrangement. Installation of the sensor does not require access to the inner space of the crankcase. The sensors are available in versions with bottom and lateral cable outlet. Active sampling is applied to achieve the same excellent dynamic measurement characteristics regardless of the installation location. The special design of the sample flow path inside the sensor effectively protects the measuring optics from contamination.

Technical data

  • Power supply: 2x 24 VDC + 30 % | -25 %
  • Operating current: up to 0.25 A
  • Data interface: 2x CAN
  • Ambient temperature: 0 ... 80 °C
  • Degree of protection: IP65
  • Installation: G ¾“
