Monitor Alarm System
Is Introduced By
Engine Efficiency Associates,
Linden, N.J., has introduced a self- programmable 16 or-32 point moni- tor alarm system. A plain English 24 character message can be typed in via internal keypad for each point monitored. Fire, bilge and machin- ery pressure and temperatures are typical application, as well as intru- sion. Sensors can be normally opened or normally closed contacts.
Delays on each point can be from one second to one hour. The system runs on 12 V and draws less than 1 amp. When no alarms are present, the LCD display shows the correct time and date.
Engine Efficiency Associates of- fers a complete line of monitor and remote machinery control systems.

Coast Guard Approves
Radar Training Courses
At Marine Simulation
The U.S. Coast Guard has given its approval for courses in radar training at Marine Simulation, Inc.,
MSI, according to an announcement by David L. Wood, president. The approval of the radar programs at the new training center in Lower
Manhattan covers initial, refresher, and re-certification courses. The certification process is accepted by the Coast Guard for initial or renew- al of licenses that require the holder to have a Radar Endorsement on his license.
The three radar courses now join others, such as Crude Oil Washing (COW) and Inert Gas Systems (IGS), taught at the center in ac- cordance with IMO and Liberian regulations.
Located at 17 Battery Place in
New York City, MSI was estab- lished last November by Mr. Wood, a Maine Maritime Academy grad- uate and an ex-Navy flyer, to fill what he felt was a void in maritime instruction in Lower Manhattan.
MSI is said to be the only mari- time training center in the New
York City area that operates six days a week on a "walk-in" basis.
No reservations are necessary, and the programs can even include meals and hotel accommodations at reasonable rates for students com- ing from outside the area.
