Oceanic Systems Poseidon System Unit with Poseidon Software Installed - 5180

The Oceanic Systems’ 5180 is the centrepiece of the Poseidon® system, providing alarms, control and monitoring to all of your vessels PLC,
NMEA2000® and Oceanic UDP devices.

The 5180 boasts a powerful Quad Core processor, passively cooled and is supported by a high-quality SSD. The system has no moving parts, so it is suitable for harsh marine environments.

With dual CAN, dual Ethernet and dual HDMI, there is no shortage of connectivity. Oceanic’s world-class modern graphics, intuitive user interface and ultimate ease of configuration. Poseidon offers a truly state of the art user configurable, multi-user, multi-page, multi-display capability.

  • Intel Quad Core Processor
  • No extra software or hardware modules required
  • Supports 2 local primary displays & up to 8 attached secondary displays
  • WiFi link to tablets, phones, laptops.
  • Cloud-based link to remote devices
  • Up to 8 IP camera inputs
  • Dual NMEA2000® CAN bus interfaces
  • Ethernet Interface to PLCs and other devices

The Poseidon 5180 system controls and monitors systems including but not limited to tank levels, engines, AC power and digital switching, DC power and digital switching. It also controls and monitors temperature, bilge and fire detection systems, cameras, weather information and navigation information. User configuration is simple – customise displays, move, add and delete controls and choose pre-installed options to get started. Poseidon supports up to two primary helm displays and up to eight secondary displays elsewhere in the vessel across the network, readable on Oceanic Systems’ BlackGlass high-resolution touchscreen displays.

Poseidon’s 5180 computer unit heat pipes act as heat transfer devices, combining the principals of thermal conductivity and phase transition to transfer heat from the processor quickly and efficiently. As the processor produces heat it is absorbed into an above alloy block and is then transported along each hollow heat pipe. These pipes hold liquid and some air space so that the heat can evaporate the liquid into a gas. The gas travels down the pipe, before cooling on a plate on the outside of the casing where it condenses into a liquid once again, releasing the latent heat before running back to the processor.

Oceanic Systems has introduced heat pipe technology to its cutting-edge Poseidon System 5180, whose compact computer unit with its fast and powerful Quad Core Processor powers an advanced display of vessel data. Utilising heat pipe technology ensures that the components inside the Poseidon processor are kept cool for a long reliable life without any moving parts to clog or fail in service. Due to the very high heat transfer coefficients for boiling and condensation heat pipes are highly effective thermal conductors.
