Electrologic Inc. of New Hyde Park, N.Y., was established recently by Gene Ossi, who has been associated with marine machinery f o r 40 years. The new company will provide turnkey electronic automation and annunciator console systems f o r diesel propulsion systems and diesel generators. Using plug-in i n t e g r a t e d components, the systems are said to cut costs considerably.
The Electrologic console provides an audible alarm to alert the engineering officer of machinery malfunctions. T h r e e l o g ic cards cover all monitoring needs.
L E D i n d i c a t o r lights simplify testing of the e n t i r e system.
American Bureau of Shipping approval is available on request.
Using modern techniques and space-saving components, the system can be expanded to monitor up to seven engines f r om one console.
Units are now being installed for Henry Gillen's Sons Lighterage, Don Jon Marine, and Creek Towing.
