Small innovator making waves

Written on the 8 June 2010

A SMALL digital technology company is making waves designing and manufacturing key components for the marine industry.

Paulger Control Systems (PCS) is discovering ways to streamline manufacturing processes.

The status of a boat’s electrical system can now be displayed onto a high definition LCD screen on the dash of the boat via an NMEA2000 network.

“This allows the skipper and others to see live information regarding critical systems such as bilge pumps, fire systems, battery condition and charging,” says Paulger.

“It also alerts the skipper when a fault occurs, or a circuit is operating outside its pre set parameters. It can even switch on another bilge pump automatically, should the primary pump fail or continue to operate outside its parameters.”

Paulger says virtually anything on the digital network can now be accurately monitored and controlled from one or more display units located around the vessel.

“Our company has been working behind the scenes developing this product and technology since 2005 along with Digital Switching Systems - NC, Blink Marine - Milan, Italy and more recently, NAVICO - US and NZ,” he says.

“This technology would not have been possible without the involvement of our company, as we wrote the software and instigated the design. In simple terms, we have taken power management within the vessel to a new and exciting level.”

During a visit to the METS show 2003, Paulger Control Systems (PCS) entered into an agreement with Digital Switching Systems LLC (Based in North Carolina) where it became the Australasian distributor for their products.

DSS is a key component supplier to the likes of Sunseeker, SeaRay and a host of American boat manufactures.

“We found a niche in the market where the only way we could help the boat builder, was to manufacture the device or product ourselves,” says Paulger.

“In Australia, we have designed and manufactured wiring harnesses and implemented digital switching systems for the likes of Sunrunner Sport Cruisers, Whittley Cruisers, Haines Hunter and several other smaller boat builders.”
