MACHINERY CONTROL SYSTEM WILL SUIT ALL PROPULSION INSTALLATIONS
An advanced machinery control system known as SHINMACS (Shipboard Integrated Machinery Control System), developed by CAE Electronics, Montreal, is described. It can be used with any type of main engine and with any number of engines, including auxiliary equipment and ancillaries. The control consoles are located at various points throughout the ship. They are the bridge console, the machinery control console, the maintenance/electrical console, the supervisor's control console, and local operating panels hard-wired to the propulsion remote terminal units. The bridge console can be directed to assume control. The man-machine interface is a single visual display unit that allows the operator to select from more than 100 displays.
