The econ Systems 2004 Alarm Monitoring and Control System is the perfect automation solution for medium to large size vessels. It can be used as a standalone Machinery Control and Monitoring System or the econ Systems 2004 can be extended with Power Management, Cargo Control, Propulsion Control, Integrated Navigation and Dynamic Positioning functions.
Econ system 2004 provides a vast library of function blocks. With the standard function block, we provide a well proven certified programming code to control respective marine equipment. Our library includes variants of valve controls, generator controls, PID loop controllers and much more. Through utilizing highly standardized and well documented components, system quality and reliability, together with the best value for money, are all guaranteed.
High resolution graphics and modern software design, Wide selection of high resolution displays, Operator panels for console/bulkhead mounting, Field station for process IO's in a variety of sizes, Alarm/log/event printer (dotmatrix), Graphical printer for reports/graphs trending, Type approved by major class societies within IACS, Duty alarm system, engineer call system, Standalone or integrated with other products Redundant PLC.
Data Acquisition Stations are provided to house PLC and IO cards. The IO cards, commonly referred to as DI,DO ms, are used to gather & process incoming signals from various sensors and to communicate with the PLC.
Based on the number of channels, PLC & IO modules are selected. A 100 Mbps network is formed through managed Ethernet
switches which have network monitoring capabilities. Stations are also connected with consoles/Workstation in a closed loop
circuit. Marine grade displays are fitted on the console with processing systems. Mimic pages can be customised as per
The AMS is interfaced with critical equipment and alarms are replicated on Human Machinery Interface (HMI) or Econ Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) located in the ER/MCR and bridge as per the respective class requirements. Addressable Fire Detection System, Tank Gauges and Bilge Level Monitoring system, Auto power management system, Dead man system, Call bell system, Galley Call bell system, Flood detection system, Door Position Alarm System can be interfaced with the Alarm Monitoring System to have a combined monitoring system for all subsystems.
Econ 2004 architecture
is mainly comprised of Field stations (for processing of IO,s and is extendable), Redundant PLC,
LAN switches, work Stations, Engineers Calling Systems and many more.
A redundant LAN network tying together the control and operator systems is at the heart of the Econ. The networked system is highly scalable and offers superb flexibility to optimize safety and redundancy, as well as cost effectiveness.
The Stations are connected to the
redundant Ethernet Link Switch for communication with the Main and Backup Server Operator Workstations and
for communication with other Control Processors via a closed loop circuit.
An Operator Workstation consists of a TFT colour graphic screen, Operator Keyboard, Marine Personal Computer and optional Printer. The Operator Workstation provides a reliable and user friendly operator interface to ensure safe operation.
Watch calling during unmanned engine room operation (UMS/EO), alarms are transferred to the bridge, the duty engineer's cabin and to the public places.Engineers calling system and safety ("dead man") systems are functionally integrated with the watch call system.
