What is Engine Order Telegraph
Ever consider how a route officer remaining on an extension right on top of the boat imparts to a maritime architect in the motor control room that is most regularly arranged underneath water line of the boat? This correspondence acts as the sensory system for a boat without which it is difficult to move the boat. Without this correspondence a designer from motor control room wouldn’t know anything about the boat’s whereabouts and the pilot wouldn’t have any thought regarding what is going in the motor control room. For this reason, a correspondence framework called motor request broadcast is utilized.
As demonstrate as its innocence, a motor request broadcast is utilized to exchange orders from guide to motor control room with respect to ship’s development as far as pace and bearing. Most fundamentally, engine order telegraph motor request transmit utilizes a mechanical lever which can be moved over various positions for ahead and toward the back movement.
Common motor request broadcasts have the transmit and a ringer and are situated on the extension and the motor control room. For the most part, requests are started from the route span illuminating architects in control space to alter speed or course. The guide moves the lever to a particular position and the rings on both the transmits i.e., extension and motor control room begins ringing, advising specialists to roll out the required improvements. The lever on the motor control room is then additionally moved and the ringer quits ringing when this lever coordinates the position of the lever on the scaffold. This checks the data is recognized and the motor speed or is changed by requests. Frequently more than one broadcast is available on the boat, situated on crisis moving or nearby moving station of principle motor.
For the most part the lever headings on a motor request broadcast comprises of these requests:
- Navigation Full
- Full Ahead
- Half Ahead
- Slow Ahead
- Dead Slow Ahead
- Dead Slow Astern
- Half Astern
- Full Astern
- Emergency Astern
- Finished with Engines
In the vast majority of the advanced vessels that are outfitted with direct ignition motors or electric propellers alongside programmed controls, the broadcast framework is moved up to chip away at electrical flags as opposed to mechanical ones. The transmit on the extension is specifically regarding the motor controls along these lines requiring no architect or faculty in motor room. These sorts of broadcasts are fundamentally not motor request transmits as per guidelines of marine characterization social orders however are named remote controlled transmit gadgets. In any case, these are for the most part alluded to as motor request transmits.
In spite of having a remote controlled transmit gadget, boats are still required to have a motor request broadcast with the goal that correspondence ought to stay continuous in situations when electrical remote control framework comes up short.
