    The DCU 208E is a complete engine supervision unit without a local user interface. Its I/O can be selected as inputs or outputs, and are widely configurable. It also sports a brand new lightning-fast CPU.

    The new design is modern and effective and provides installation possibilities in outdoor and exposed locations.

    Compared to the previous DCU 208 engine controller, the new DCU 208E has the following advantages:

    • Faster processor
    • Deutsch DT-connector connectivity
    • All I/O channels are configurable as inputs, outputs, signal type, etc.
    • Two thermistor channels
    • Dual J1939 CANbus engine interface channels

    The unit is operated from one or several Remote Panels. These can be from the 200- or 400 Series, or a vessel monitoring system, VMS. Start/Stop, Home and Alarm Acknowledge buttons are all available from the Remote Panel.

    The unit is optimized for today’s electronic engines and gearboxes with two J1939 interfaces, and the 19 fully configurable I/O channels allows a wide variety of sensor inputs from older mechanical engines and transmissions. Suitable for both 12- and 24 VDC installations.

    In larger projects, the unit can be expanded with additional inputs using the built-in RIO link. There is also a module available that links in generator AC parameters. These inputs need not be just engine parameters but inputs from any engine room system is possible. With the built-in web server and the internet browser on your laptop or portable device, the DCU 208E can be easily configured.

    Modbus communication is available on RS-485 and on Ethernet as Modbus TCP, of course as standard. A configuration or firmware file can easily be up- or downloaded, semi-automatically, by inserting a USB memory stick into the provided port, eliminating the need for any tooling or software, and providing field updating and installation also by untrained operators.

    Note!

    A Connector Kit (P/N: 1006479) including four Deutsch DT-connectors, crimp sockets and sealing plugs is available and if needed, this must be ordered separately.

    If purchased as a replacement for a classic DCU 208, a Harness Conversion Kit (P/N: 1006945) with four Deutsch DT-connectors prewired to four DCU 200-series connectors for easy installation is available and if needed, this must be ordered separately.
