The 8202 provides pushbutton communication of all standard propulsion orders between the bridge and engine room. Additionally standby orders are included, these orders can be operated at any time independently of the propulsion orders. Communication is fully bi-directional; orders may be placed from either source.
Optionally, propulsion machinery direction can be monitored in Ahead, Astern and Stop positions. Wrong direction status is visually and audibly alarmed at all stations..
Up to nine bridge and nine engine room telegraphs may be connected together with a minimum configuration of one bridge and one engine room telegraph. Twin screw telegraph systems can have split Port and Starboard telegraphs for local at machinery stations..
Order indicators are super bright LEDs for daylight operation and all buttons have backlit legends for night operation. Bridge telegraphs are fully dimmable and can be grouped together to dim in unison.
Designed for the harsh marine environment, the 8202 is both rugged and reliable. The compact, DIN mounted anodized aluminum enclosure with lexan front provides IP65 protection. Connections to the 8202 have been designed to reduce installation cost. Only one twisted pair cable is required for communication, or an optional second twisted pair cable can be used for redundant communication. Each telegraph is powered directly from the ship's 24 VDC power and can auto transfer to a backup 24 VDC power source.
Self diagnostics are performed by each 8202 for various fault conditions. Fault status is visually and audibly alarmed at all stations.
Set up of the 8202 (display type, order bell time delay, wrong direction, etc.) is via a navigation switch and LCD, making set up and service a simple procedure.
System accessories available from PMC include bells, horns, and project specific drawings.
