Remote Fault Detection Lightens Your Repair Expenses

Published 29th January 2019

With the Dubai International Boat Show on the horizon, we’re already looking forward to a new season of sailing the open waters overseas. With this in mind, we know how a failure in your equipment can spoil the fun, especially when you’re far away from the manufacturer.

No matter how well you keep on top of your vessel’s equipment, faults can often occur, particularly when exposed to harsh conditions. Maintenance, cleaning and repairs not only take up time when you could be out on the water, but can also be very costly.

If the failed equipment is underwater, you usually have two options – either lift the entire vessel or hire a professional diver to handle the issue while you’re moored in a nearby marina. This can be particularly difficult abroad as you might have to negotiate language barriers and, perhaps most importantly, find someone who is familiar with the equipment. Again, the costs quickly add up - especially when abroad - given that you may be moored for an extended period of time while waiting for the manufacturer to deliver the parts.

The Submersible Inductive Lighting System (SILS) was designed with this in mind, and uses the yacht owners’ Wi-Fi connection to fix any lighting faults remotely – which takes one worry off your mind. No matter where you are in the world, the remote fault detection feature allows owners to report any issue to BGB using its mobile app. Our teams examine the affected lights remotely from the UK to help you get your system up and running as soon as possible.

This feature also allows BGB to upgrade your systems whenever a new software patch is released or needed, so you can be sure they are always running on our most-up-to-date and secure applications.
