ENHANCED MIP CALCULATOR WITH ENGINE CONDITION ANALYSIS FEATURE

Autronica A/S was a pioneer in the development of MIP-calculators for diesel engines. The main purpose of such systems is to provide information on necessary engine maintenance actions and tuning procedures to restore full efficiency and optimal fuel consumption. The company claims that maintenance based on measurements is more effective than routine time-based maintenance. Its new Diesel-Prof program, an enhancement for MIP systems, is briefly described. Diesel-Prof takes data stored in the floppy disk of the MIP- calculator and analyzes it further in a standard IBM-compatible PC. The program analyzes engine condition by comparing actual service data with `ideal` reference performance parameters, usually established on ship trials. An engine condition diagnosis report is then printed, based on deviations detected.
