The new range of automatic bridge-control and measuring systems is built up around ASEA's electronic DS-8 programmable signal-processing system, which is designed for initiating and controlling the output of equipment for process control by means of a program stored in a memory. The following standard marine automation systems are available: -Bridge Control Type FAHMS-S-for the remote control of marine Diesel engines with fixed propellers. It is standardized for all major engine types, and can be adapted to others. A wide range of functions can be controlled, including start, stop, slowdown, fuel and rpm control, and also fault tracing. Bridge Control Type FAMP-S-similar to the above but for c.p. propellers; there are two varieties, one controlling on the most favourable combination of rpm and propeller pitch, and the other one maximum rpm. Alarm and Measuring Type ALSY-8-temperatures, pressures, levels etc. are sensed by analogue transducers and presented on a digital display. Power Plant Control GENA-S-for automatic control of shipboard power plants. Diesel Engine Condition Monitoring Clydet-CM. Propeller Shaft Measuring Torque Meter, Power Meter, and Fuel Rate Meter-the torque meter is based on the torductor torque transducer.
