Raptor™ Telematics for Marine Application
One of our consultants, Kossel Controls, recently accepted a client with a marine application requiring rugged, qualified controllers and displays for an electric foiling vessel. Since the vessel operates in an ever-changing environment at sea, control software needed to be updated frequently and quickly. Kossel Controls turned to New Eagle to develop these controls for the vessel using the Raptor™ Control Platform.
Meeting the control system requirements was easy, but the vessel presented an additional challenge: the consultant needed a way to develop and calibrate software on the vessel from shore to avoid time-consuming, frequent and costly trips to sea.
Find out how Raptor™ Telematics solved this control challenge by reading the case study.
