Alarm Management

/Alarm Management

The Marine Watch system is a highly effective and attractive alarm management system, with an easy to use operator interface displaying instant recognition of vessel status.

Bringing alarm channels from multiple processes and multiple alarm panels into Marine Watch reduces risk, and gives the operator a clear view of vessel status.

The 12.1″ colour touchscreen in the Marine Watch Operator Panel is a marine grade high-resolution panel. The system architecture is scalable and can be used in small to medium-sized installations. The I/O modules are in a separate cabinet, and communicates to the operator panel(s) on a standard ethernet cable. One or several operator panels can be installed for remote monitoring and response

Configuration is built right into the touch screen panel and access is protected with a PIN-code. No tools are required to create, adjust or modify alarms. Each channel can be configured with a button-text description up to three lines, delay time, inverted channel, etc.

Additionally, the use of signal groups makes it possible, by simple means – to group signals that naturally belong together.

A built-in buzzer will sound in the event of an alarm, and the corresponding rectangle flashes in red. The alarm is then acknowledged by pressing the flashing rectangle.

Fixed output channels provide indications for remote lights and buzzers for common alarm annunciation.

Marine Watch I/O Panels can be supplied in 12 VDC and 24 VDC versions, in I/O capacities ranging from 60 and up to 120 switch channels. 8 or 16 analogue input channels can be added by adding one or two of the optional MWA 8 Analog Inputs.
