Efficient dredge monitoring system shows the progress: What you see is what you’ve dredged
Teledyne PDS Wire Crane Monitoring system provides the functionality tailored for the dredge operator to carry out their job efficiently.
It shows a real time overview of the wire crane in navigation, profile, and 3D views; displaying the clamshell, pontoon/vessel, design depths and color-coded digital terrain model (DTM). The navigation view highlights the high and low spots and is updated in real time, registering the progress of the dredging work. The registration follows the shape of the clamshell, bucket or orange peel bucket and is visible immediately in all views. The system also shows the open/close status of the dredge tool. Up/down indicators show the operator the exact distance to the seafloor and design depth continuously. 3D design models allow the use of complex designs.
The system can be set to a digging and dyking mode.
