ScanReach solutions

The forthcoming revolution in the maritime and offshore industries is mainly driven by the power of digitization and increased connectivity onboard and between vessel and land. 

Smart wireless
technology

In order to obtain connectivity, cabling has so far been the only option available for data transfer in large and complicated steel environments such as ships, offshore platforms and large industry plants. Wireless data transfer has not been fully technically viable until ScanReach developed its smart wireless sensor technology and algorithms tailored for working in confined steel environments.

Based on our wireless sensor technology, the following two solutions will be launched by the end of 2018.

In:Range for instant personnel on-board control (POB), allowing immediate and high precision rescue team involvement.

In:Connect for instant wireless connectivity, enabling easy data harvesting and transfer in confined steel environments such as ships and rigs.

In:Range

For instant personnel on-board control (POB), allowing immediate and high precision rescue team involvement.

During emergency situations onboard ships and rigs, gaining POB control is a top priority. Existing solutions and procedures are mainly analogue, based on manual headcounts and paper sheets. This is a time consuming and complicated process often leading to dangerous situations and potential loss of lives. Delays in identifying and locating missing personnel leads to delays in mobilising assistance and providing potentially life-saving treatment.

In:Range utilizes smart ‘low power’ wireless IoT sensor technology providing on-board emergency response teams with an immediate overview and position of all personnel in real time. This information can be shared with different locations – such as fleet management offices, shipowner offices, insurance companies, coastal services and rescue departments – through cloud-based services, enabling enhanced decision support and assistance in emergencies.

Obtain complete POB control
Know where the crew is at all times in distressed and emergency situations.

Real time wireless solution
Works well in confined steel environments.

Easy and effective installation
No cables are needed. Easy installation when vessels are in operation.

Cost effective solution
Both in operation and maintenance. Robust and scalable technology. 

Technical description

In:Range is a robust, scalable and affordable solution well-suited for both existing assets, as well as for new vessels and rigs under construction. In:Range consists of the following main elements:

– Personal tags
– Vessel interior and exterior sensors
– Central unit for processing data
– Screen for visual presentation or add-in to existing screens on bridge

The vessel interior and exterior sensors are positioned based on the General Arrangement to ensure complete coverage. As personnel move around, their tag is identified by the nearest interior sensor, and wirelessly transmitted to the central unit. A connected PC with In:Range software collects the crew location information from the central unit, and presents it on a visual interface.

In:Range is delivered as a “plug and play” solution, and can be easily installed by the crew during normal operation. The system is wireless, with no cabling required between sensors.

In addition to real-time location of personnel In:Range can be expanded to cover additional valuable services such as:

– Safety alarm on bracelet
– Virtual area barriers
– Area access control
– Area responsible support for work permits etc.
– «Man-over-Board»-functionality

Our unique wireless connectivity technology can also be used as a platform for easy wireless sensor data transport and asset tracking. At the end of 2018 ScanReach will launch In:Connect, a stand-alone product tailored for this functionality.

Key features

In:Range is developed as a “plug and play” solution and can be easily installed by crew members. Its main features include: 

– Personnel location and control (POB)
– Detect fall
– Alarm button

In:Range is cost effective to install and ideal for retrofitting. No cabling is required. It also features battery backup for continuous real-time dataflow during potential vessel power blackouts. 

If vessels and rigs have internet connections, cloud services ensure data readings are accessible from both the assets themselves and shore-based facilities. In:Range boasts a world-class design and user interface.

Up until now cabling has been required to transfer data in large and complicated steel environments such as ships, offshore platforms and industrial plants. 

However, thanks to ScanReach’s breakthrough sensor technology and algorithms, wireless data transfer is finally possible in confined steel environments. We have called this innovative wireless IoT platform In:Connect

Easy wireless data collection  
Wireless transport and remote data collection inside ships and rigs

Real-time solution
Works well in confined steel environments  

Easy and effective installation
No cables are needed. Easy installation when vessels are in operation.

 

Cost effective solution

Technical description

In:Connect is a robust, scalable and affordable solution ideal for both existing assets, as well as for new vessels and rigs under construction. In:Connect consists of the following main elements:

– Vessel interior and exterior sensors
– Central unit for processing data
– Dashboard interface for visualisation of aggregated data 
– Screen for visual presentation or add-in to existing screens on bridge

If complete coverage is required we recommend adding sensors in every room in accordance with the vessel’s General Arrangement. A connected PC with In:Connect software collects the data and information from the central unit and presents it on a visual interface.

In:Connect is delivered as a “plug and play” solution, and can be easily installed by crew members during normal vessel operation. The system is wireless, with no cabling required between sensors.

We are currently undertaking full-scale performance tests on-board several different vessel types. The results so far are extremely promising, putting us on schedule to launch In:Connect by the end of 2018. This will offer the market a  powerful and efficient “plug and play” solution enabling easy connectivity and data transfer on-board ships and rigs. 

In:Connect features battery backup for continuous real-time dataflow during potential vessel power blackouts. 

If vessels and rigs have internet connections, cloud services ensure data readings are accessible from both the assets themselves and shore-based facilities. In:Connect boasts a world-class design and user interface.
