New Electronic Control Equipment From Danish Firm Described In Free Brochure

Mailing Kontrol A/S, the independent Danish-owned firm in the field of electrical alarm, supervision and control equipment, is offering a new full color brochure on the products produced by the company.

Titled "Mailing Kontrol—75 Years," the publication gives a brief history of the firm from 1910 through the present, and mentions that since 1935 a great number of ships have been equipped with Mailing alarm and calling systems for unmanned engine spaces, fire alarms, navigation and signal light panels, push-button telegraphs and also anemometer systems for the measuring of wind speed and direction.

Discussed in detail in the brochure is the new Mailing Kontrol microprocessor-based alarm and control system, MK Monark, which has been designed to fulfill the requirements concerning unmanned engine spaces in ships, even if the central processor and CRT display is not included in the system. The basic unit is a 32-channel Drabant panel, which contains all necessary functions such as individual alarm indicators, group outputs and a siren relay, to form an independent alarm system. Channel type, alarm limits, delays, alarm grouping, inhibit etc., can be programmed via keyboard and display in each Drabant unit. Up to 32 Drabant panels can be connected together to an integrated system by means of the 16-bit MK 900 Processor. The information can be represented by CRT display, color display and alphanumerical printer.

Other electronic control equipment described along with the MK Monark include: fire alarm system type 813 classified for up to 25 fire detector loops and type 815 for fishing boats and small cargo ships; fire detectors of the thermo-sensitive type which are approved by the classification societies; push-button engine telegraphs; navigation light panels; the anemometer transmitter type 878 for continuously measuring wind speed and wind direction on board ships; the automatic weather station AVS 888; Mailing Kontrol bells, horns, sirens and rotating lamps; and the recently developed series of signal light columns with clear standardized symbols for the information of the crew when an acoustic alarm signal sounds.

Excellent color photos of the products are used to illustrate the descriptive text of the literature.
