Ajax ensures hassle-free system installation for Marine Energy Systems

June 10, 2022

Engineers who are experienced in supplying, installing and servicing marine electronics see many applications of Ajax security systems in the boating market.

Marine Energy Systems (MES) are focused on delivering silent, non-polluting and renewable sources of power into the marine sector. The company has a reputation for only working with credible, long-established companies.

With it’s UK nationwide network of trained skilled professionals, MES are able to service the whole of the UK – and one of the customer demands MES engineers face more and more frequently is an intelligent security system onboard.

Security concerns are inherent in two of three vessel owners; this considerable demand faces a lack of choice when it comes to security equipment purchase. Regardless of the vessel size, owners have to choose between spending over £5,000-6,000 for a specialised system or adapting a car/motorcycle alarm system. The last one is quite a hassle because navigation, key vessel indicators, controls and security are expected to be accessible on a digital dashboard and smartphone – anywhere, anytime.

MES works with big players and customers in this sector, including Sunseeker, a well-known luxury Superyacht manufacturer, and many others. MES came up with a request to supply boats with a security system which is compatible with the yachts’ onboard software. The system should: Support cellular connectivity; Have a mobile app to report alerts; Be straightforward to install; Look slick to fit luxury interiors.

Ajax security systems integrated via a proprietary API with wireless detectors that fit both luxury yachts interiors and tight budgets. MES’ engineers appreciated a hassle-free approach to system installation.

All detectors are equipped with SmartBracket panels meaning that there is no need to disassemble the enclosure. To connect a detector to the system, an engineer just scans a QR code with the Ajax app and the device is ready for configuring. The system parameters and detector configuration can be done from desktop or mobile apps. This system feature helps Marine Energy Systems in providing remote technical support throughout the entire vessel lifecycle.

Battery power became another practical aspect. Wireless devices do not require a power supply from a vessel at all. In turn, Ajax control panels, hubs, can be connected to the onboard electricity via the 6 V power supply unit. Backup batteries and low power consumption ensure long-lasting protection with no additional maintenance.

“I see a huge opportunity here,” said Lee Smith, Operations Manager, MES. “We work with various shipyards building leisure, commercial and service vessels – and all of them need some security solution. Having 25 years of experience in the boating industry, I think Ajax is a big leap forward, allowing us to build complex systems that will serve our customers all over the world.”
