DCU 408E Engine Controller

The DCU 408E is a base building block to build a supervision system for both variable speeds (propulsion or pumps) or fixed speed (generating set) diesel engines. It provides the same level of functionality as it’s sibling, the DCU 410E Engine Controller, without a display and input buttons.

It’s ideal for installations with small engine room compartments.

  • Specifications

    The DCU 408E is the base building block to build a supervision system for both variable speeds (propulsion or pumps) or fixed speed (generating set) diesel engines.

    The DCU 408E accepts input data from the engine J1939 CANbus link plus multiple physical I/O, which can be expanded with expansion units. It can communicate with the ships alarm system on CANopen and Modbus RTU, as well as Modbus TCP on standard Ethernet. The DCU 408E also provides engine control logic and the outputs required, including but not limited to, pre-lubrication control, start & stop signals, both ETR and ETS, plus remote interfaces for these functions. Connections are made via clearly labeled connectors on the rear of the panel and need no special tools. Finally, the DCU 408E works best together with Marine Pro Remote Panels but can also be used in conjunction with third-party remote systems.

    Why more customers select the DCU 408E

    • “Plug and Play” connectivity to multiple remote panels
    • Low-cost option when no local display required
    • Accepts multiple sensor standards and twin J1939 networks
    • IACS Class Approved
    • Intuitively configurable using the built-in web server
    • No special software, cables or tools required

    The ability of the unit to connect to other ships systems without sophisticated software or specialist tools makes it installable and usable by nonexperts. Customizable by a simple laptop with a web browser and a standard Ethernet cable, the password protected areas allow more flexible configuring or customization when required.
