REDUCTION OF ELECTRICAL CABLING COSTS -- INTRODUCING THE DATA HIGHWAY

It is in the method of application of the data highway principle to specific vessels and functions where the advantages of cost reduction can best be seen. The highest benefit accrues where long high density cable runs are at present used, for instance, in container ships for monitoring of refrigerated containers, and in special product carriers where multichannel monitoring may be required. Further applications also lend themselves to the data highway concept, viz; remote monitoring and control of engine room from bridge, remote control of deck lights/navigation lights, remote temperature control and monitoring of cargoes, operation of tank valves, pumps etc. data logging. In addition many domestic services can make use of the highway.
