NEW CONTROL DEVICE FOR GOVERNOR HANDLE OF MAIN ENGINE REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM

Almost all ocean going vessels today, are intended to be operated with an unattended machinery space, therefore, high reliability and easy maintenance of automation equipment are required especially for main engine remote control devices. A new control device for the governor handle of the main engine remote control system developed by MHI Kobe shipyard has unique transmitters and function generator to convert the out-put signal from linear order signals to non-linear control signals. This transmitter is of special transformer type called "LINIAX" without any contact parts, or lead wires for translation from mechanical movements to electric signals. The function generator is composed of an IC operational amplifier and has trimming potentiometers for adjusting of knuckle points and gains of the out-put signal, because the order transmitter is combined with a telegraph handle. A pneumatic actuator of MHI make is used for the governor handle of engine side. It is believed that MHI's new engine remote control device will show high reliability and easy maintenance.
