Siemens Offers Cost-Effective Solutions In Automation Systems

—Free Literature Available— Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc., Power Engineering Marketing Division, is developing new costeffective methods of ship control to concentrate control on the bridge and reduce the size of the crew required.

One development from Siemens is the SINEC HI industrial bus, which serves to link the automation systems of a vessel to each other and with a combined central control station/ bridge control center in such a way that the systems remain unaffected by a fault in another system.

For central operation and monitoring tasks, the SIGOS 41 (Siemens Graphic Operating and Supervising System) is tied into the industrial bus. Up to eight video display terminals with color graphics capability can function in multi-terminal operation.

All monitoring, open and closedloop control systems are configured autonomously and have their own operation and monitoring possibilities.

The bus system and linked units insure: simple monitoring, operation and control; flexible adjustment to changing conditions; high system availability; continuation of automatic operation, even if central control system fails; and continuation of automatic operation, even if a bus fault occurs.

Siemens, which has provided marine automation systems for more than 1,400 ships worldwide, has supplied equipment to U.S. Lines, Lykes Brothers, Sea-Land Services and Bay Shipbuilding. In addition, the company has supplied the PTO generators for three Navy T-AOs under construction at Pennsylvania Shipbuilding and alternators for two T-AGSs being built at Bethlehem Steel.

Siemens is offering a free color brochure on their SINEC HI industrial bus. The color publication details the features of the system and contains two schematic drawings of an automation network linked via the Siemens industrial bus. For a free copy, Circle 98 on Reader Service Card
