HAT is a Digital Health Monitoring System designed and developed for ship rotating machinery by an FNT at Sea Services research and development team of vibration analysts, specializing in Digital Signal Processing and Control Systems.
A series of HAT prototypes have been deployed for demonstration, testing and evaluation onboard a variety of vessels from several companies interested in having a hands-on experience of an advanced portable Condition Monitoring system.
The scope of HAT is to support the transition of the shipping industry into the digital era, by diminishing the need for physical surveys and substituting the requirement for vibration analysis by onshore specialists, as part of ships’ machinery Condition Monitoring program. In addition, HAT instantly shares the information of ship machinery condition with fleet managers and superintendents through an on-line data analytics platform.
HAT is an advanced portable vibration meter, equipped with a 3-axis IEPE accelerometer with an embedded diagnostics algorithm. The algorithm is running continuously, analyzing vibration readings and instantly provides to the user a detailed report of machinery condition, analysis findings and straightforward recommendations for remedial actions, if required. A supervised machine-learning algorithm supports and continuously updates the fault indicators values, in order to improve system reliability.
HAT is currently undergoing LR Digital Health Monitoring System approval and is planned to be available on the market by the end of October 2020 through HAT Analytics Ltd a spin- off of FNT at Sea Services.
