Warnings and Cautions

WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS


This document is intended for use by service engineers only, providing installation or
service for Transas MIP Ltd. navigation systems, and holding Transas MIP Ltd.
certificates for aforementioned works.

WARNING!
Important Note!
For correct operation, please, read this document and instruction manual supplied
by the scanner manufacturer carefully, before operating the equipment.

WARNING!
Lethal Voltage Hazard!
Inside the equipment and in the cables lethal voltage hazard is present. When
access covers are removed, lethal voltages may be exposed. Some capacitors used
in the equipment, take several minutes to discharge their stored voltages after
the switching OFF, this is a lethal voltage hazard. Always set the supply switch-fuse
to OFF and remove the fuses, before removing the access covers of the equipment.
Cables must be connected to the power supplies only provided with grounding.
Cables must not have damaged insulation and must exclude contact with parts
conducting current.

WARNING!
Health Hazard!
When cleaning the inside of the equipment, take care not to inhale dust. The dust is
a temporary health hazard, depending on individual allergies.
Units radiate heat and must be installed in such way that free air circulation is ensured.
It is necessary to strictly follow the requirements set forth in the operation manuals
for computers and systems peripheral devices.

CAUTION!
Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESSDs)!
The equipment may contain ESSDs. Take care not to damage these devices
by discharge of electrostatic voltages.

Preamble

Warnings and Cautions

High Voltage
Radar equipment requires the use of high voltages. This can cause injury, or loss
of life. Danger exists only when the units are opened, exposing internal circuits,
as when servicing the equipment. You do not face any danger during normal
operation. The Radar System has been carefully designed to protect personnel
from possible injury from high voltages at normal operation.
Nevertheless, it is recommended that the Line Switch always be opened as an
added protection when inspecting or servicing the equipment.
Although every effort has been made to eliminate danger to personnel, no responsibility
is accepted for any injury or loss of life suffered in connection with the equipment.

X-Ray Radiation
X-Ray Radiation may be generated by S-band Transceiver units and care must be
taken to avoid possible harmful effects when they are opened for maintenance.
When power is on, care should be taken not to approach closer than 1 ft. or less,
from the unit unless front cover is in place.

Radio-Frequency Radiation
Harmful effects (particularly to the eyes) may be caused by exposure of any part of
the human body to radio-frequency mean power densities in excess of 100 mW/cm2.
This power density is exceeded at a distance of 1 ft. or less, from the 12 ft X-Band
aerial (when stationary).
Hazard distances at which power densities of 100 W/m2, 50 W/m2 and 10 W/m2
exist, are given in the following tables:

The system is however designed to disable radiation when the antenna is not
rotating.
The pedestals have also been predisposed for the installation of an external safety
switch, which can be mounted on, or near the platform. This switch removes power
from the pedestal eliminating the possibility of accidental operation during servicing
and also causes disabling of transmission.
Whenever it is necessary to disconnect the waveguide system from a radar transmitter
for maintenance purpose, the transmitter output should, when practicable, be terminated
in a matched load. If this is not possible, care should be taken to avoid standing in front
of an open-ended waveguide from which power is being radiated.
NEVER look down a waveguide from which power is being radiated.

Warnings and Cautions

Safety Switch
The Radar unit is provided with a safety switch, which disable the Antenna
movement during maintenance operations and avoids high voltage damage. Always
turn the safety switch off, whenever advised in this manual (for instance, before
performing any maintenance or installation procedure). Ignoring safety switch
operation may produce hazard of electrocution as well as other severe injuries.

Scanner Unit Installation


Avoid hoisting the SU70-14E/S and SU70-25E/S antenna blocks by taking them
from the array.

Fig. 10. Scanner unit hoisting

The scanner units SU70-14E/S and SU70-25E/S equipped with 6 ft or 7.5 ft array
are endowed with a local safety switch. Such switch inhibits the rotation and the
transmission of the scanner unit and is used when maintenance interventions are
carried out on the antenna or near it. This switch is used to enable (ON) / disable
(OFF) the rotation antenna (see the figure below).
When the safety switch is enabled, no operation performed from the master display
can enable the rotation and/or the radar transmission.
Note: During normal operating conditions as well as during maintenance, the engine
can be quickly disconnected from its power line by setting OFF the safety
switch.

Fig. 11. Safety switch

If not already available, realize a suitable platform for housing the transceiver with 6
or 7.5 ft array.
Such platform must allow to easily lay out the interconnection cable and to
comfortably perform the possible maintenance activities.
Besides, the platform must allow the array free rotation on the 360. Therefore,
make sure that no obstacles exist in the immediate closeness. For this purpose,
refer to the overall dimensions reported in the installation drawings (see the figure
above).

Performance Monitor Mode Setup


Perform the following procedure:

Connect the sensor cable to J3 connector of APM-030 unit;

Connect the contact switch cable to J2 connector;

Supply 24V DC to J1 connector.

The contact switch is used for the remote switching on/off of the equipment.
For this reason the switch on APM-030 should be set to OFF.
Switch on the radar and performance monitor and wait for at least 30 minutes
to allow both systems to get temperature stabilised.
Switch the radar transmission to 24 NM range and check that it is at the maximum tune.
Due to the reflections from the obstacles nearest to the radar antenna,
the presentation of 4 markers may appear outlined; in order to improve the image
of the markers, rotate slightly the SPM-010 unit around the scanner unit axis.
VR2 trimmer allows fine tuning of the performance monitor thus optimising
the image of markers on the display.
The markers intensity can be varied by using VR2 trimmer; to do this, the radar receiver
gain should best be adjusted after the warm-up, to obtain a floor noise just visible.
Now keep rotating VR2 trimmer clockwise until the marker farthest from the centre
is barely distinguishable from the floor noise.
VR1 enables adjustment of the markers distance from the display centre;
as it is rotated clockwise, the markers come nearer to the centre at a step of 2 NM.
The distance from the display centre to the innermost marker should be adjusted
to 14 NM during the normal transmitter operation; the radar VRM should be moved
to 14 NM for reference.
Now rotate VR1 trimmer counter clockwise until the stop, the 4 markers will appear
close the centre with the angular width reduced. Slowly rotate VR1 clockwise until
the innermost marker shifts from 12 NM to 14 NM. If the marker distance from the
display centre is always 14 NM and fails to decrease by with the use of VR1 trimmer
(the SPM-010 unit picks up a signal which is too strong), it is necessary try to lower
the position of SPM-010 relative to the radar antenna, or to reduce the relative
distance, or to vary the SPM-010 inclination.
And the other way round, if you fail to put the markers to a distance of 14 NM
(SPM-010 unit picks up a signal which too weak), try to vary the distance of
SPM-010 unit from the radar antenna.
Now the installation is completed; close APM-030 unit with special clamping screws.

For more detailed description of the scanner installation procedure, see scanners
INSTALLATION AND SERVICE MANUAL document. This document is supplied as
part of the equipment delivery set.

ATTENTION!
Special attention should be paid to the scanner antenna and transceiver installation
requirements set forth in the aforementioned document.

Mechanical Installation
The 30 kW S-Band Up Mast Antenna Group consists of following units and type
designations:

Turning Unit with 30 kW Transceiver: 03R-039/B with 09N-011;

Transceiver Power Supply: 16PS-003;

12 feet Antenna: 02R-039/B;

Performance Monitor (PM) Arm: 303813A1;

Safety Switch: 74X376P001.

Handling
The antenna and the pedestal must be run up the mast separately and then
assembled.

The pedestal contains delicate electronic components handle accordingly.


The antenna is also lifted by crane using its two eye-bolts. The antenna surface
is sensitive to impacts and pressure. Any deformation of the antenna surface can
reduce the radar performance.

Fig. 24. Lifting by crane

Installation Principles
In order to obtain the best radar performance and accessibility, the following
precautions should be used:

Space for the antenna to swing freely;

Safety and easy access for maintenance purposes. It is preferable


to use a platform with safety handrail;

Fig. 25. Suggested masthead antenna mounting

36

The antenna to be accessible in all directions;

Avoid exposure to exhaust fumes from the funnel;

Avoid strong vibrations;

Avoid interference between two antennas;

Avoid obstacles in the radar beam, especially ahead of athwart ships directions.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Installation of Scanner 30 kW S-Band Up Mast

If two radar sets are installed, their antennas should be installed on different levels.
The antennas can be mounted either on a single mast construction, so they are
on top of each-other, as illustrated in picture above, or the antennas can be mounted
on a platform, one on portside and one on starboard side.

Fig. 26. Suggested antenna mounting

The following formula and drawing, as illustrated in the picture below, will help you
to determine the correct distance and height between the two radar antennas.
The 25 angle on the drawing is the actual vertical beam-width with a safety margin
included.

Fig. 27. Antennas position

Example:
H=L/3, where:
H Height between the two antennas;
L Distance between the two antennas.
If the distance L is 6 m, then the height should be 6/3 = 2 m.
Blind sectors towards the bow and within a few degrees on port and/or starboard
side caused by the structure of the ship must be avoided with great care. In case
of a blind sector at the bow in mid-ships position, it is advisable to mount
the antennas on the starboard side of the ships keel-line.

Chapter 1. Hardware Installation

37

Installation of Scanner 30 kW S-Band Up Mast

When obstacles are sufficiently far from the antenna, they will result in a blind sector
on the radar display with approximately the same amplitude as observed by the human
eye, but these obstacles can produce false echoes. An echo produced by an obstacle
close to the antenna, can be suppressed by reflecting the antenna-beam skywards by
mounting a reflector made of metal. This solution however does not eliminate the blind
sector, but will reduce false echoes produced by the obstacle. The best position for
the reflector can be found by testing out different positions.
It is highly recommended that the shipyard submit the drawings of the radar antenna
position(s) to the manufacturer for approval.
The Installation consists of following basic steps:

Mount the Antenna Pedestal without the antenna on the mast.

Make relevant cable connections.

Install and connect the Performance Monitor Arm.

Install the safety switch.

Mount the Antenna on the Antenna Pedestal.

Note: Antenna Pedestal should be installed in such way that the performance
monitor arm is not facing funnels or other big ships obstruction. Sector
blanking is enabled to prevent false echoes caused by funnels and/or big
ships construction (see above). If performance monitor arm is positioned,
within this blanking area, the pedestal must be turned because the radar
performance monitor is not working where there is no transmission in
the sector of its sensor.
Installation of safety switch is compulsory. It is recommended to be installed at the
bottom of the stairs giving access to the Antenna Pedestal. The waterproof switch
is supplied by manufacturer, but a connection cable (22.5 mm2) should be provided
by the shipyard.
The Antenna Group must be covered by plastic sheet during any painting performed
after the installation.
Note: In no case, the Antenna should be used to hoist the assembly up the mast.

Pedestal with Transceiver


Prepare the platform for mounting of the pedestal, with its built in transceiver.
Hole diameters and distances are evident from the figure.

Fig. 28. 30 kW S-Band up mast Antenna Group dimensional drawing

The pedestal should be mounted with its lid hinges pointed forward and cable glands
pointed astern. However the antenna swinging plane must be horizontal in all
directions when ship is upright on even keel. Consider giving ample space for
service, especially astern of the antenna group. If such space cannot be achieved
then contact manufacturer for installation alternatives.
Note: The plastic protection cover on the pedestal rotary joint must not be removed
until just before mounting the antenna. Anyhow the rotary joint must not be left
uncovered when the antenna is not mounted.
Note: The fixing materials to fasten the antenna pedestal to the ships platform
are not provided by the manufacturer. Assuming a platform plate thickness
of 20 mm, four M20 stainless steel bolts of 80 mm length, with relative nuts
grooves and washers, must be used. The tightening couple is 256 Nm.

Antenna
The antenna and the pedestal must be run up the mast separately and then assembled.
The installation procedure of the antenna with fixed coax cable to the antenna
pedestal consists of the following steps:

Remove the bolts from the antenna shaft, which will be used to fasten
the antenna (antenna support) to the pedestal;

The antenna must be lifted in the mounted eye-bolts. Also see above Handling
item;

With the antenna hoisted, lay it on the pedestal matching the six leading bolts
with the relevant wholes, taking care that the front of the antenna is orientated
at the same direction as the arrow on the antenna shaft;

Tighten all antenna attaching bolts. The tightening couple is 130 Nm;

Insert the 90 degrees connector of the antenna coax cable on the rotary joint
connector and secure it by fastening the attaching ring.

Wiring Requirements
This paragraph describes how to connect serial devices to the embedded computer.
You should read and follow these common safety precautions before proceeding
with the installation of any electronic device:

Use separate paths to route wiring for power and devices. If power wiring and
device wiring paths must cross make sure the wires are perpendicular at the
intersection point;

Note: Do not run signal or communication wiring together with power wiring in the
same wire conduit. To avoid interference, wires with different signal
characteristics should be routed separately.

Use the type of signal transmitted through a wire to determine which wires
should be kept separate. The rule of thumb is that wiring that shares similar
electrical characteristics can be bundled together;

Keep input wiring and output wiring separate;

It is advisable to label the wiring to all devices in the system.

ceiling/wall, console mounting etc.), see the relevant mechanical drawings
presented in Chapter 3 of this document.

Installation and Mounting Requirements

Adequate ventilation is a necessary prerequisite for the life of the product. The
air inlet and outlet openings must definitely be kept clear; coverings which
restrict ventilation are not permissible.

Chapter 1. Hardware Installation

57

Workstation Installation

Do not install the unit in a horizontal position (laying down), as this will cause
heat to build up inside the unit which will damage the LCD panel. To prevent this
problem, it is recommended installing the unit in a vertical position (30
degrees) to improve the airflow through the unit.

To further improve the cooling of the unit, it is recommended installing cooling


fans underneath blowing upwards into the unit air inlet. This may be required in
high temperature applications and also when there is reason to expect
temperature problems due to non-optimal way of mounting.

Exposure to extreme direct sunlight can cause a considerable increase in the


temperature of the unit, and might under certain circumstances lead to
overtemperature. This point should already be taken into consideration when the
bridge equipment is being planned (sun shades, distance from the windows,
ventilation, etc.).

Space necessary for ventilation, for cable inlets, for the operating procedures
and for maintenance, must be provided.

Mounting position must carefully be selected to avoid heavy vibration and


acoustic noise.

The distance of each electronics unit from the magnetic standard compass or
the magnetic steering compass must not be less than the permitted magnetic
protection distance. This distance is measured from the centre of the magnetic
system of the compass to the nearest point on the corresponding unit
concerned.

Connections
Use only high quality shielded signal cables.

Fig. 47. Cable entries and connectors

Any cable should generally be kept as short as possible to provide a high quality
input/output. The maximum signal cable length will depend on the signal resolution
and frequency, but also on the quality of the signal output from the computer/radar.
Layout of the connectors is presented in the figure below:

Fig. 48. Connection area of TPC24 computer

COM Module 4 x RS-422/RS-485 ECDIS/NMEA is installed in the expansion area of

grounding screw located on the unit (see figures above). The wire used
should have a cross sectional area of at least 6 mm2.
230VAC/50Hz or 115VAC/60Hz power cable must be connected to AC IN power
input (Std IEC inlet).
24VDC power cable is connected to 24V DC input via Phoenix 2pin 1927564
MSTB 2,5/2-GF-5,08 THT connector. Required polarization should conform to the
markings on the connector area of the unit. Ignoring the markings on the unit or its
add-on modules might damage the unit and/or external equipment in which end,
warranty will be void

Part No.: 18011201.
Specification of RIB6 is presented in Chapter 3 of this document.

ATTENTION!
Check that technical characteristics of the connected equipment match characteristics of
the RIB6 Input\Output signals specified in Chapter 3, section Hardware Technical
Specification, paragraph Radar Integrator Board (RIB6), item Electrical
Characteristics. Check that RIB6 firmware version is not older than v. 6.1.
For connection of RIB6 unit to different types of scanners see Annex F.

ATTENTION!
In the event of connection two or more (up to four) scanners to MFD, set appropriate
IP addresses for each RIB6 as described in item below Checking and Setting
RIB6 IP Addresses. See also Connection Four Scanners to MFD. Block Diagram
in Annex Q.

Cables
Cables are run and installed in accordance with the cabling schedules.
RIB6 is connected with the Ethernet ports of RS6 Computer by means of a standard
category 5 screened cables used in Ethernet 10/100 Mbit networks. The cable
contains 4 twisted pairs within the common screen and has RJ-45 connectors
on both ends. Connection of cable cores with the connector contacts is identical
on both sides.
External lines of Video and Trigger signals to the RIB6 are connected by means
of coaxial cables with BNC connector plug.
External lines of Bearing, Heading, RS 422 Control signals to the RIB6 are

Signal Input Resistor Selector


General Recommendation
Low resistor (50 Ohm) for Video and Trigger pulse is used in case of direct
transceiver signal connection to RIB6.
High resistor (1.2 kOhm) for Video and Trigger pulse is used in case of original
transceiver signal distributing between Radar Display and RIB6.
If the video signal is too weak for the normal work of the RIB6, it is required to
increase the input resistance, with small deterioration of the pictures quality.

Protecting the primary side:


The device must be installed in according with the regulations as in
EN 60950. It must be possible to disconnect the device using a suitable
isolating facility outside the power supply. The primary side line protection,
for example, is suitable. For device protection, there is an internal fuse.
Additional device protection is not necessary.
Recommended backup fuse for mains protection:
Power circuit breaker 10 A or 16 A, characteristic B (or identical function).
In DC applications, a suitable fuse must be wired in upstream.
Note: If an internal fuse is triggered, there is most probably a malfunction
in the device. In this case, the device must be inspected in the factory!

Output:

Connecting the Output:


The connection is established using screw connections on the screw
connection of the DC output:
24 V DC: + and -;
DC OK switching output active: DC OK and -;
DC OK output floating: 13 and 14;
POWER BOOST switching output active: I < IN and -.
At the time of delivery, the output voltage is 24 V DC. The output voltage can
be set on the potentiometer.
Protecting the Secondary Side:
The device is electronically protected against short circuit and idling.
In the event of a malfunction, the output voltage is limited to 35 V DC.
Note: Make sure that all output lines are dimensioned according to the maximum
output current or are separately protected. The cables on the secondary side
must have sufficiently large cross sections in order to keep the voltage drops
on the lines as low as possible.

Signaling:
The active signal output, the floating signal contact and the active POWER
BOOST switching output are provided for function monitoring. The DC OK-LED
and the BOOST-LED also enable the function evaluation of the power supply
unit directly on the operation site (see table below).

Floating contact:
The floating signal contact opens and signalizes a drop in the output voltage
as set of more than 10%. Signals and ohmic loads of up to 30 V and currents
of up to 1 A can be connected. For heavily inductive loads such as a relay,
a suitable protection circuit (e.g., damping diode) is necessary;

Fig. 68. Floating contacts drawing

Chapter 1. Hardware Installation

77

Workstation Installation

Active signal outputs:


The 24 V DC signal is applied between the DC OK and the - connecting
terminal blocks or between I < IN and - and can carry up to 1 mA. By
switching from active high to low, the DC OK signal output signalizes when
the output voltage is more than 10% below the output voltage. The DC OK
signal is decoupled from the power output. It is thus not possible for parallel
switched devices to provide external supply. The 24 V DC signal can be
directly connected to a logic input for evaluation. The POWER BOOST signal
output signalizes that the nominal current is exceeded;

Fig. 69. Active signal outputs drawing

Signal loop:
Monitoring two devices: use the active signal output of device 1 and loop
in the floating signal output of device 2. In the event of malfunctioning, a
common alarm is output. Any number of devices can be looped in. This signal
combination saves wiring costs and logic inputs.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Workstation Installation

Input:
The QUINT-DC-UPS is connected to the 24 V DC output of the power supply via
the Input + and Input - terminal blocks. The output is isolated from the input
by the internal diode. The stored power is only supplied to the output.
The device is protected against over current and short circuit by an internal
input fuse. Additional device protection is not required.

Note: If an internal fuse is blown, this is most probably due to a device fault. In this
case, the device should be checked in the factory.

Output:
All devices that must be supplied without interruption in the event of a supply
voltage failure (Buffered Load), are connected to the Output + and Output -
terminal blocks of the DC output. It is recommended that all other loads, which
do not require buffering (Unbuffered Load), are connected to the 24 V DC
output of the power supply. This increases the buffer time, as this time depends
on the output current. The internal diode ensures that the buffered loads
are isolated from the unbuffered loads.

Battery module:
The battery module is connected to the QUINT-DC-UPS via the Battery +
and Battery - terminal blocks. To interrupt the charge/discharge current of
the battery module, the Battery module selection selector switch 14 must be
set to Service (see figure below).

Fig. 75. Battery Module Selection selector

The QUINT-DC-UPS is optimized for use with QUINT-BAT/24DC type battery


modules.
The following battery modules are recommended:
QUINT-BAT/24DC/3,4AH (Order No. 2866349);
QUINT-BAT/24DC/7,2AH (Order No. 2866352);
QUINT-BAT/24DC/12AH (Order No. 2866365).
Following successful installation, the capacity of the connected battery module
must be selected using the Battery module selection rotary switch 14.
Note: The fuse on the battery module must be removed when installing or replacing
the battery module.

Signaling outputs:
The signal outputs are connected via terminal blocks 11/12/13 (4), 21/22/23 (5)
or 31/32/33 (6). The contacts are floating contacts. The plug-in bridge provided
can be used to supply +24 V to grouped contacts 11, 21, 31. This means that
N/C contacts 12, 22, 32 and N/O contacts 13, 23, 33 can be evaluated as
switching outputs with 0 V and +24 V voltage levels.

Chapter 1. Hardware Installation

Workstation Installation

Remote Shutdown:
The device has a UPS remote shutdown function for specific shutdown.
Remote shutdown must be deactivated for the device to switch to buffer mode
in the event of a supply voltage failure.
Remote Shutdown Off:
The Remote shutdown R1 and Remote shutdown R2 terminal points
are short circuited (e.g., with a plug-in bridge) OR. The Remote
shutdown R2 terminal point is supplied with a 24 V DC voltage.
The QUINT-DC-UPS switches to buffer mode in the event of a supply
voltage failure.
Remote Shutdown On:
The Remote shutdown R1 and Remote shutdown R2 terminal points
are not connected.
All LEDs are off.
The QUINT-DC-UPS does not switch to buffer mode in the event of a
supply voltage failure, instead the device is shut down. When the supply
voltage is reapplied, the battery module is charged and the device
remains off until remote shutdown is deactivated.
Connected loads are supplied as long as the supply voltage is present.

Fig. 76. Remote shutdown

Setting options on the device

Buffer Time Setting:


Buffer mode can be exited after a predefined time has elapsed or by external
shutdown. If the device is to be shut down after a specific time has elapsed,
the time can be set via the selector switch 13 on the front of the device. When
the supply voltage is reapplied, the device can switch to buffer mode again.

ATTENTION!
The buffer time setting must be set to value not less than 1 minute according
to MFD requirements.

82

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Workstation Installation

Battery Module Setting:


Before startup, the capacity of the battery module used must be set on the
device via the selector switch 14. When replacing the battery, the selector switch
must be set to Service.

Fig. 77. Settings

Method of Operation
In the event of a power failure at the output, the QUINT-DC-UPS supplies all
connected devices with a 24 V DC voltage without interruption at a load current up
to 20 A. When the 24 V supply voltage is applied, the connected battery module is
charged. In the event of a supply voltage failure, the battery module is connected
to the output, and the stored power ensures that all connected devices continue
to operate without interruption. The professional signaling via function LEDs and
floating PDT contacts enables reliable evaluation of all the main operating states.

Output Voltage:
In normal operation, the QUINT-DC-UPS output voltage corresponds to the
usual supply voltage. If the supply voltage drops more than 1 V in the space of
0.1 seconds or falls below the minimum threshold of 22 V, the device switches
to buffer mode. If the output voltage drops below 20.4 V in buffer mode, this is

Function

Input. The maximum permissible current depends on the cross section


of the connected cables and the ambient temperature (see table below).
Only one redundancy module is required to decouple two power supplies that
are connected in parallel (A and B) with nominal currents up to 20 A.
The individual modules are wired together as shown in the figure below. One
redundancy module per power supply is required to decouple power supplies
with nominal currents from 20 A to 40 A. Both inputs 1 and 2 of the
redundancy module must be connected to the power supply via two cables as
shown in the figure below. This is required as the maximum current carrying
capacity of 30 A per input must not be exceeded. For connecting the
redundancy module to the power supply, we recommend using two cables of the
same length and with identical cross sections.

Output. During operation only devices, which are suitable for operation
in potentially explosive areas of Zone 2, can be connected to the output
of the redundancy module in Zone 2. The plus pole of the device is wired
to the output of the redundancy module as shown in the figure below.

For proper connection DCU6 to WS, see connection and block diagrams enclosed
in Annex J and in Annex O Annex P depending on system configuration.

Connections
Up to eight DCU6 can be connected to the MFD system: 4 main DCU with
connected to them 64 different sensors and 4 backup DCU with connected to them
the same sensors. Thus it is possible to connect 64 different sensors to the MFD.
DCU6 is connected with the Ethernet ports LAN1 and LAN2 of RS6 Computer by
means of a standard category 5 screened cables used in Ethernet 10/100 Mbit
networks. The cable contains 4 twisted pairs within the common screen and has
RJ-45 connectors on both ends. Connection of cable cores with the connector
contacts is identical on both sides.
Navigational sensors to the DCU6 are connected by means of screw connectors.
In case of considerable length of external cables, a screened cable is recommended.
For the connection of the DCU6 with navigational sensors, use double core screened
cable in the insulating shell, category TP5. The screen is connected to earthing on the
sensor side. Where the level of electromagnetic field is insignificant, twisted pair type
unscreened cable up to 1.5 mm2 cross section may be used. As the electric current in
the cable does not exceed 20 mA the conductors cross section is of no importance.
The maximum length of the cable will depend on the type of interface and is shown
for each specific sensor in the appropriate connection schedule.

Assembling of the WAGO I/O Set Modules


All system components can be snapped directly on a carrier rail (DIN rail) in
accordance with the European standard EN 50022 (TS 35). All modules have
the same shape to minimize the project commitment. The reliable positioning and
connection of the coupler/controllers and the individual I/O modules is made using
a tongue and groove system. Due to the automatic locking the individual
components are securely seated on the rail after installing.
The coupler/controller must be fixed on the carrier rail with the lateral orangecoloured locking disk. To fix the coupler/controller, apply pressure on the upper
groove of the locking disk using a screwdriver.
To remove the coupler/controllers, release the locking disk by pressing on the
bottom groove. It is also possible to release an individual I/O module from the unit by
pulling an unlocking lug.
The following sequence of modules must be observed in the course of assembling:

MODBUS Module;

Digital/Analog Input Modules;

Relay Output Modules;

End Module.

TRANSAS WAVE SYSTEM


General
Transas Wave is aimed at Commercial shipping where there is a need or a demand
to monitor and decrease the fuel consumption and/or change to a Green mind set
during planning and monitoring the vessels voyages and maneuvers.
Transas Wave provides online decision support where instantaneous consumption
as well as consumption per sailed distance is presented in clear and easy way.
Basically, this solution can be compared to a cars trip computer.
Transas Wave is installed on the bridge and uses information from the vessels
navigation sensors, flow meter, engine data and emission sensors.
Transas Wave is recorded data enabling online presentation of trends, future
analysis and comparison of voyages and how weather and other conditions affect
consumption and emission. It shall be easy to send data to shore.

Keyless Protection (If Necessary)

Press Yes button to restart PC:

KEYLESS PROTECTION (IF NECESSARY)


General
In the work with keyless protection, the role of a dongle is played by a special set
of binary data stored in the register (virtual key KeyFile). All the information which,
in the ordinary work scenario, is stored in a physical dongle, is contained in
the virtual key.
The virtual key is associated with unique characteristics of a particular user
computer. The virtual key cannot be used on other computers.
Each license sets a restriction on the number of computers which the product
can be installed on. In line with this restriction, the user will not be able to activate
the product more than the fixed number of times. For a network, product activation
on each computer is required.
With the Internet connection available, after the system installation the user should
run a dedicated application which collects information on the computers and sends
it to Transas who send back a KeyFile which is then activated.
If there is no Internet connection, the user e-mails information to
activate@transas.com and receives the KeyFile in much the same way.

ATTENTION!
With the use of the keyless protection, it is
if the computer configuration is changed (e.g.,
re-installed, etc.) the available KeyFile cannot be
to notify Transas (via the distributor) about
the procedure to receive a new KeyFile.

PM-Aided Radar Diagnostics


The PM is used for checking the radar transceiver status.
The reduced noise ring range indicates reduction of the radar magnetron power:
if the ring is at a distance of 12 miles rather than the required 20 miles, the radiated
power has decreased by 10 dB, and the magnetron should be replaced.
The size of break in the ring corresponds to the power radiated by the antenna into
the space. If the break becomes less than 30 degrees, the antenna maintenance
is required.

Distance and Bearing Offset


Introduction
Adjustment of the RIB in azimuth, i.e. an offset to the fixed azimuth errors of the
radar antenna. The magnitude of the offset is determined as the difference between
the bearing value of a clearly observed and uniquely identified stationary radar
object measured on the chart or by using other measurement method, and a mean
value of several bearing measurements made for the same object by using the RIB.
The offset corresponds to the value of an angle, which the picture should be turned
to in the clockwise direction for it to match the actual situation. The offset is entered
with an accuracy of up to one tenth of a degree.
Adjustment of the RIB in range, i.e. an offset to the delays in the radar and RIB
circuits. The magnitude of the offset is determined by comparing the results of range
measurements made for clearly observed and uniquely identified stationary radar

Procedure of TCS Control Setup Algorithms

PROCEDURE OF TCS CONTROL SETUP ALGORITHMS


Essentials
TCS algorithm settings are stored in nm.cfg, tcs.cfg, tcsfull.cfg and
tcshalf.cfg files.
To adjust control algorithms for a particular ship, use the following procedure:
1. Adjust Track control section in the System Configuration utility as per settings
specified for the given ship type.
2. Open tcs.cfg, tcsfull.cfg and tcshalf.cfg files is stored in
C:\Transas\IBS\win32 directory.
3. Change the settings as required by using the fine adjustment procedure
described below, and save the files.

Fine Adjustment
The fine adjustment procedure is intended for improving accuracy of steering
the ship along the route and should be made, as required, by a system engineer
only, and checked in the process of sea trials. It is necessary to take into account
the fact that the TCS system adjustment is maid for ship+autopilot combination
on the whole, so considerable changes in the autopilot settings may require
the re-adjustment of the control system parameters as well.
Fine adjustment consists primarily in the selection of correct temporal ship
characteristics. Such characteristics are set separately for a loaded
(tcsfull.cfg file), half loaded (tcshalf.cfg) and empty (tcs.cfg) ship
condition. tcsNNNN.cfg files are expected to be edited with the aid of NotePad
editor included in Windows OS.

Passing-of-Turn Settings
1. PivotX. Average shift of the ships pivot point forward relative to the ships
geometric centre, in metres. If set incorrectly, the ship may tend to go inside
(to correct this, it is necessary to increase PivotX) or outside (reduce the PivotX)
relative to the set turn trajectory. PivotY is normally 0.
2. TurnRelaxROTChange. Characteristic time of the ship ROT change in
milliseconds. The larger TurnRelaxROTChange corresponds to smaller ship
manoeuvrability relative to the present configuration, and the other way round.
Typical Parameters:
Ship Type

Fast Ferry

Container Ship

Tanker

Parameter in milliseconds

5000

4000

8000

3. ROTDriftKoeff Characteristic of the ship ROT change. The approximate value


can be calculated as a constant ship drift angle during the turn/ROT grad/min.
If set incorrectly, the ship always goes inside (to correct this, it is necessary to
increase value) or outside (reduce the value) relative to the set turn trajectory.
Note: Pay special attention to the accuracy of setting the ROTDriftKoeff parameter
from the EMRI SEM200 autopilot.
Typical Parameters:

In the case of excessive value reduction which is not commensurate with


the actual manoeuvring characteristics, there may be the ship track oscillation.

Motion-Along-Straight-Line Settings
For Raytheon (Anshutz) NP 2025 (NP2025+) autopilot, this values are of no importance.
1. TimeOnLeg characteristic time of the ships HTS change in milliseconds.

to the ready configuration, and the other way round.
Typical Parameters:

2. XTEs; XTE_Ks values which determine width of ranges and their corresponding
course correction in the direction which will bring back to the route leg. The change
of values is required in the case of incorrect ship behaviour as it moves along the
straight line under constant environmental conditions (motion along a pronounced
sinusoid or motion at a large distance off the route leg). If the ship moves along
a sinusoid around the route leg, the course correction coefficient should be
decreased within the observed amplitude. If the ships mean position is off the route
leg, the coefficient is required to be increased, or a new band should be set. In any
case, it is advisable to leave a band with zero coefficient (deadband). The table
provides initial range value and their corresponding correction coefficients.

Plausibility Check Adjustments


1. MaxHDGJump threshold value of course change in degrees. As the course
changes by a value larger than the setting within the period of one second,
the Track Control mode will be stopped. On ships with a high rate of turn (Fast
Ferry), it is necessary to set the appropriate value in order to avoid unfounded stops.

Fault

Cause and cure

There is a large number of


reflections on the radar screen,
the use of the suppression
controls has failed to provide a
high quality picture

Open RIB6 page of the Settings panel. Turn on the display


of an oscillogram. By varying the amplification level, reduce
the signal amplitude down to an acceptable level: 85%
of the maximum

If Navico scanner is used


sometimes its not possible to
establish connection with
scanner from MFD WS.
Its caused by different settings of
the Ethernet controllers: Navico
uses automatic IP detection,
MFD WS fixed.
Usually it happens during first
connection to the scanner
(unlocking procedure) or during
scanner embedded SW upgrade.

Its strongly recommended during first usage of the radar connect


it to the first WS Ethernet controller directly.
Change WS controller setting from fixed IP address to Automatic
detection and make hardware scanner restart (switch off/on
power).
Wait 1-2 minutes and try to get connection again.
After unlocking of the radar and preliminary testing, IP address of
the WS may be restored to proper value.

If Navico scanner is used


sometimes it is unstable
operation of the radar.
It was detected very slow
response of the scanner to
changing the scales. It took more
than 10 seconds. Sometimes
switching to StandBy from
Transmit state was observed.

Cold restart of the radar resolves the situation power


connector from the radar shall be disconnected and connected
again after 5 -10 seconds.

For Navico scanner bad quality

277

Software Technical Specification

Sensors (Input/Output)
Operation according to the IEC 61162-1 or NMEA 0183.
Maximum 20 available Com ports for the external sensors connection.

Positioning
GGA, GLL, RMC, DTM, VTG, ZDA, sentences are processed:

Positioning.
Capability to use positioning from the sensor (in GGA\GLLNMEA sentence
format) of one of the following positioning systems: GPS (DGPS), GLONASS,
GNSS, LORAN-C.

Time.
As a time sensor the positioning system receiver is commonly used
(GPS, GLONASS, etc.) or other equipment, which transmits this data type.
The ZDA sentence received on this channel can be processed by the MFD.
To receive time from an external source run System Configuration Utility/Sensors/
Sensors/UTC for indicating the port to which this source is connected. If the time
source is not connected in the System Configuration utility, the computer time
is used.

ATTENTION!
The computer date and time may be different from Greenwich date and time. This error
will not be taken into account in the MFD operation.
In order to avoid such situation, the transmission of data on Greenwich time and
date from an external source (e.g., GPS or transponder) should be ensured.
If no information on time and date, or only the information on time arrives,
it is necessary, before the system is run for the first time, to use Start/Control
Panel/Date/Time for setting the computer time and date as equal to Greenwich time
and date (in the case of time the accuracy of up to one hour would be sufficient).
This conformity should be checked at least once a month.

AIS Transponder Interface


AIS (Automatic Identification System) is used for the automatic transmission and
exchange of information with ships and different coastal objects fitted out with this
system receivers via the VHF channel.
AIS transponder interface is implemented in accordance with IEC/PAS 60936-5

Uninterruptible Power Supply Unit for Universal Use


QUINT-DC-UPS/24DC/20
Description

Uninterruptible Power Supply Units for Buffering Long-Term Power


Interruptions:

Saves space thanks to the compact, uniform design;

Integrated diode saves money through isolation of loads;

Maximum system availability through optimum battery management and reliable


signaling;

Minimum installation time due to ready-to-use plug-in bridges and integrated


timeout.

QUINT-DC-UPS uninterruptible power supply units with long-life lead-acid batteries


provide long buffer times at high currents. Even in the event of a longer supply
voltage failure, the units ensure that all connected devices continue to operate
without interruption.
The devices have a narrow and uniform design, which makes them ideal for use on
the DIN rail where space is limited. In addition, short wiring paths ensure order and
clarity in the control cabinet.
The high level of availability and the particularly long service life of the battery
modules are achieved through professional battery management. An automatic
presence check (every minute), automatic quality test (once a week), temperaturedetermined charging, and electronic over current protection ensure the battery
modules are ready to operate at all times. Power is therefore available in the event
of an error and the service life of the battery module is maximized.
The actual state must be determined quickly so that the right decision can be made
in an emergency. Optimum signaling is thus required for maximum system

Chapter 3. Technical Specification

297

Hardware Technical Specification

availability. Three floating PDT contacts and three LEDs are provided for function
monitoring, which indicate all the operating states clearly.
So that relay signaling is more reliable and more durable than before, an additional
positive supply output has been provided. The contact, which is current-limited
and resistant to continued short circuits, is located next to the relay connections
and enables easy bridging. In the event of wiring errors, the shortcircuit protection
prevents any welding of the relay contacts. This ensures that the user can rely on
an OK signal. Even in the event of connection errors, currents remain below
100 mA, which prevents damage to the relay contacts.
A system is switched off after a specific time that can be set on the device or by
an external signal.
No additional installation is required for shutdown. In addition, ready-to-use plug-in
bridges minimize the installation time.
The connected devices can be divided into buffered and unbuffered loads using the
isolated input. This extends the buffer time, which depends on the output current.
If only critical devices are protected using fuses, smaller battery modules can be
used that save money and space in the control cabinet. In addition, the isolated
input protects the connected devices against errors in the internal network.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Hardware Technical Specification

Description
The redundancy module can be used to 100% decouple two power supplies of the
same type, which are connected in parallel on the output side to increase power or
provide redundancy.
The reliability of a power supply determines the availability of individual components
in a system and whether complex systems can function safely.
Redundant connections are designed for supplying systems, which place particularly
high requirements on operational safety. The redundant configuration of the power
supply ensures continuous system availability.
The power supply of a system can be configured redundantly through
the connection of at least two power supply units in parallel. Together they then
supply the connected devices. The connected power supplies must be large enough
that the total current requirements of all devices can be fully met by one power
supply. In the event of an internal fault on one device or a mains voltage supply
failure on the primary side, the other device automatically takes over the complete
power supply without interruption, and vice versa.

Hardware Technical Specification

Keyboard Unit Overview


The keyboard unit is made up of basically four parts:

Plastic front part with holes for keys, indicators and rotational controls,
e.g., Rain, Gain, Dimmer;

Silicon rubber keypad with contact pads for the QWERTY-keys;

Printed circuit board with LEDs for background light and indicators, tactile
switches for function keys, rotary encoders, control electronics and connectors;

Plastic back cover.

Keyboard QWERTY-Field
The keys are designed (looks and feel) and placed in a way to resemble a standard
English-American laptop keyboard.
All keys are backlit with orange/yellow LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). The keys
are printed with a hiding-effect, i.e. the key legends are normally invisible when
not lit. The QWERTY-field is normally not lit, when a key is pressed the backlight
is switched on and this first key press is not sent to the PC. When no key
of the QWERTY-field is pressed for more than 30 seconds, the backlight
will be switched off.

Keyboard Function Field


All function keys have a tactile switch on the PCB to give a distinct click feeling.
The tracking keys are printed with a hiding-effect, i.e. the key legends are normally
invisible when not lit. They are lit only when the tracking function is active.

Safety
Considerations

Even although the test conditions for bridge units provide for a maximum
operating temperature of 55C, continuous operation of all electronic components
should, if possible, take place at ambient temperatures of only 25C. This is a
necessary prerequisite for a long life and low service costs

Radar Integrator Board RIB6


General Description
The Radar Integrator Board (whats follow RIB6) is designed for the reception
of analog video signals from the radar and their digitizing, pre-processing and relay
of the radar signal to the dual network as per network protocols for the Transas
navigational products.
The RIB6 is intended as means to connect radars from different manufacturers
to a personal computer executing the Transas Navi-Radar and Navi-Sailor software.
The signal processing is performed in the following order.
At a Trigger signal, the digitizing of the input signal is performed in a pulse sweep
whose size is calculated from the set number of output samples and decimation
coefficients.
After the IFA band matched filters the random pulse interference rejection algorithm
and pulse matched filter is implemented. The resulting sector presented at stage A
in the figure below.

Chapter 3. Technical Specification

319

Hardware Technical Specification

Stage B in the figure below presents the result after the azimuth integration
algorithm. The resulting sector shall correspond to the center of all sectors used
in the integration which is presented in stage C in the figure below.
The incoming data flow, regardless of the trigger repetition rate and antenna rpm,
is reduced to the set number of sectors per an antenna revolution. So before
sending the determined outgoing sector, RIB6 has to perform range compression
and sector interpolation of the 16-bits samples related to stage D in the figure below.
Concurrently with the operation of the data reception and processing algorithm, data
is transmitted and received via the RS422 serial port.

WAGO I/O Modules


MODBUS Fieldbus Coupler (750-314)
Part No.: 750-314.
This buscoupler allows connection of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM as a slave to
the MODBUS fieldbus. The buscoupler is capable of supporting all bus modules.
The bus coupler automatically configures, creating a local process image which
may include analog, digital or specialty modules. Analog and specialty module data
is sent via words and/or bytes, digital data is sent bit by bit.
MODBUS allows the storing of the process image in the corresponding Master
control (PLC, PC or NC).
The data of the analog modules is stored in the process image which is created
automatically according to the order in which the modules are connected to the
buscoupler. The bits of the digital modules are sent byte by byte and added to
the analog data (registers). If the amount of digital information exceeds 8 bits,
the buscoupler automatically starts with a new byte.

The RS7 computer is based on the Intel Celeron P4505 processor and has two
Gigabit Ethernet ports to maintain Internal and External networks connection. The
unit has a dual input power supply which will accept both AC and DC input, ensuring
that they are compatible with all power systems on all vessels. If both inputs are
connected, the units will be powered by AC. If AC power is disconnected, it will
automatically switch over to DC without affecting the operation of the unit. It makes it
possible to use AC as primary power and a 24V battery as secondary power,
eliminating the need for expensive UPS systems when it is approved by Flag and
Class. It is also fan-less with no moving parts inside which will prolong lifetime and
reduce service costs.

AUTOPILOTS
Autopilot Yokogawa PT5000A
General
The PT500A autopilot confirms to the technical requirements for the performance standard
determined by IMO Resolution A342 and also meets type approval issued by JG.

Features

Steering stand design is suitable for standing/sitting position because of basing


ergonomic principles (Height: 1200 mm);

A separate unit is used for each function, making for excellent functional
expandability and operability. Though, they can thus be easily incorporated
in a panel and cockpit type bridge consol, etc. (Outline of the unit: about 80%
compare with current model);

In addition to independence of follow-up circuit, also the control system of


the automatic and hand steering units are independent of each other;

The course steer has a dial (25 degree/rotation), and set course indicator uses
a readily visible red LED. The function keys use easy-to-understand pictorial
characters in other to minimize the possibility of a miss operation;

As there are two heading input circuit, by inputting a heading signal from
magnetic compass, etc. You can back-up the automatic steering signal from
the gyro compass. (Input signal: NMEA0183);

We can freely generate a heading signal from a heading sensor, such as a gyro
compass or magnetic compass, as well as a set course signal from GPS or INS
etc. according to the particular format;

As the course altering control of automatic steering, there are 3 mode controls:
PD control;
Rate constant control;
Fixed radius course altering control.

Autopilot Raytheon NP 2025


General
NautoPilot 2025 is Raytheon professional autopilot series for all commercial ships of 100 m
length and above. It is characterized by the most advanced steering algorithms that
ensure accurate steering with fewest rudder actions to keep the ship on a preset heading.

Fig. 179. NP 2025 dimensions

Features
NautoPilot 2025 offers excellent steering properties and can easily be adjusted to all
ship types, even to High Speed Craft (HSC). The Quick Tune function allows for the
individual definition of 6 parameter sets to quickly adapt to the current environmental
or ship condition. Turns are radius or rate-of-turn controlled. The adaptive autopilot
can be used in Precision or Economy mode depending on the sea area. In Economy
mode, the number of rudder actions are noticeably reduced with a positive effect on
ships fuel consumption. The NautoPilot 2025 series can be seamlessly integrated
into a navigational system. Various in- and output interfaces come standard. In
combination with ECDIS, the autopilot becomes an approved track control system.

Algorithms and Adaptivity


In general, an autopilot is a controller that keeps a ship on a preset heading. The
quality of this process is determined by the hardware and the software algorithms
that control it.

Chapter 3. Technical Specification

359

Autopilots

Both, hardware and software algorithms determine the accuracy of the heading
control system. The number of rudder actions and the rudder angle used to keep
the ship on preset heading are reduced to a minimum with Raytheon.
Adaptivity means an automatic adaptation of the autopilot to the current sea-state
and weather. Frequent Rudder actions that will not compensate the heading
deviation due to the environmental conditions will be eliminated automatically by
the autopilot. Therefore, the autopilot adapts continuously to the current sea-state
and weather without a manual change of autopilot parameters.
Both, steering algorithms and adaptivity are the basis for accuracy, reduce fuel
consumption and wear and tear on the steering gear.
The operator unit provides clear information about heading, set course, alarms and
warnings. A new course is set by dialing and pushing a rotary knob.

Steering Failure Alarm Rudder Order Freeze Unit SFF10


General
The SFF10 unit is designed to freeze a rudder order signal to the actual rudder
angle in case of an autopilot failure.
As long as the autopilot processor unit is working, this will be taken care of by
the autopilot itself.
If the autopilot is NOT ALIVE, then the rudder freeze function is normally implemented
by changing to NFU steering mode as a simple response to an autopilot NOT ALIVE
contact signal. This is a simple feature included in most normal designed steering
control systems.
The SFF10 Unit is designed to complete the missing functionality in some steering
systems where this automatic change over to NFU is not possible. These missing
features then calls for arrangement of an extra observation of the actual rudder
position, and use of this information in a separate freezing of the rudder order.
The AEU shall be of a type with ALIVE Relay built in.
Inputs to SFF10 Unit

24 V DC supply from ships switch board;

Alive contact from the autopilot (open contact = NOT ALIVE);

Rudder order signal from the autopilot;

Mode information from the autopilot or directly from the mode control system;

Actual rudder angle from a rudder feedback unit;

24 V DC from the autopilot to supply isolation amplifiers for rudder order signals.

Outputs from SFF10 Unit

Rudder orders to the independent steering gear systems;

SFF10 OK contact to the bridge alarm system: Power OK & SFF10 Function
OK;

Alarm contact to the bridge alarm system: Steering failure in autopilot mode;

Relay contact (both with NC and NO states) presenting the freeze state to
bridge alarm system;

Serial NMEA string to VDR holding SFF10 status information.

The Rudder Freeze Function


The SFF10 supplies a rudder feedback potentiometer with 10 V DC and the built in
processor module MPF11 tracks the actual rudder angle feedback.
In case of an autopilot failure (autopilot NOT ALIVE) the MPF11 freezes the actual
rudder angle, the rudder order from the autopilot is now replaced by this frozen
actual value.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Autopilots

Fig. 182. SFF10 rudder freeze function

The freeze function is only carried out if the autopilot is in control. If the autopilot is
NOT ALIVE when not being in control, then the SFF10 output just follows the failing
output from the autopilot.
The SFF10 unit will always fall back to transmitting the autopilot rudder order signal
in case of a power supply failure. The power supply to the SFF10 must be monitored
by the bridge Navigation Alarm system.
For more detailed information, see USER MANUAL FOR SFF10 supplied with SFF10.

General

GENERAL
In order to operate adequately in conjunction with navigational sensors, the MFD
should receive certain data from them. This data is required to be transmitted in
accordance with Standard IEC 61162-1 Maritime navigation and radio
communication equipment and systems. Digital interfaces. Part 1: Single talker and
multiple listeners or in NMEA-0183 format. In addition, there is also a range of
navigation equipment using specific data exchange protocols. MFD allows operation
with several types of such equipment.
Note: Non-compliance of the sentence Talker ID with the specified standards does
not affect its processing in the MFD. This has been done for ensuring the MFD
compatibility with devices operating according to earlier versions of standards.

ATTENTION!
It is necessary to verify that GPS transmits geographical coordinates referred
to WGS-84 Datum. If it does not, use GPS settings to select WGS-84.
Primary/Secondary Not WGS 84 alarm status does not change when invalid DTM
sentence is received.
In the processing of all NMEA sentences by the MFD, the maximum admissible
reception interval between them, whereby no alarm is triggered off, is accepted to be
equal to 5 seconds. The exceptions are provided by DTM (35 seconds).
The MFD has provision for a serial interface for a SDME according
to IEC 61162-1. An interface for pulsed/contact signals may also be provided.
When used jointly with the NR, MFDs should meet the following requirements:

Gyro equipment or equivalent shall update rate that is adequate for the ships
rate of turn;

The connected own ship speed sensors (SDME) should comply with
the IMO requirements;

The connected own ship position sensors (EPFS) should be approved in


accordance with requirements of the IMO Resolution MSC.112(73);

The connected own ship speed sensors (SDME) should comply with
the IMO Resolution MSC.96(72);

The Speed measuring accuracy of speed sensor shall confirm


to IMO Resolution MSC.96(72);

The measuring accuracy of GPS shall confirm to IMO Resolution MSC.112(73).

Universal AIS Transponder Interface

UNIVERSAL AIS TRANSPONDER INTERFACE


Description of Universal AIS Transponder Interface
General
This section describes functionality associated with the data reception/transmission
with the Universal AIS Transponder connected to the MFD.
Universal AIS Transponder is an interface developed strictly in accordance with
the following standards:

IEC 61993-2, 2001-11-09 Maritime navigation and radiocommunication


equipment and systems Class A Shipborne installation of the Universal
Shipborne automatic identification system (AIS) using VHF TDMA techniques;

IEC 61162-1, 2001-07 Maritime navigation and radiocommunication equipment


and systems digital interfaces;

ITU-R M.1371, 2000 Technical characteristics for a universal shipborne


automatic identification system using time division multiple access in
the VHF maritime mobile band;

IALA Technical Clarification on Recommendation ITY-R M.1371-1 Edition 1.3.

Reception of current own ship identifiers (IMO number, MMSI number) from
the transponder is by VDO sentence (VHF Data-link Own-vessel message).
Data on UAIS targets is received by using VDM sentence (VHF Data-link message).
Reception and transmission of different information between the transponders
are strictly on definite channels (A and B).

Level 3
Data processing is implemented to a full extent according to the descriptions
provided below in paragraphs:

IALA Technical Clarifications on Recommendation ITU-R M.1371 Edition

the following should be observed:

for fixed Aids-to-Navigation, virtual and pseudo A-to-Ns, and for off-shore structures,
the orientation established by the dimension A should point to true north;

for floating aids larger than 22 m, the dimensions of the Aids to Navigation should
always be given approximated to a square, i.e. the dimensions should always be
as follows A=B=C=D0. (This is due to the fact, that the orientation of the floating
Aid to Navigation is not transmitted. The reference point for reported position is
in the center of the square.);

A=B=C=D=1 should indicate objects (fixed or floating) smaller than or equal to 22 m.


(The reference point for reported position is in the center of the square.)

when transmitting virtual/pseudo Aids to Navigation information, i.e. the virtual/pseudo


Aids to Navigation Target Flag is set to one (1), the dimensions should be set to A=B=C=D=0
(default). This should also be the case, when transmitting reference point information

Note: The competent international body for Aids-to-Navigation, IALA, defines


an Aid-to-Navigation as: a device or system external to vessels designed
and operated to enhance safe and efficient navigation of vessels and/or
vessel traffic (IALA Navguide, Edition 1997, Chapter 7).
The IALA Navguide stipulates: A floating aid to navigation, which is out of
position, adrift or during the night is unlighted, may itself become a danger
to navigation. When a floating aid is out of position or malfunctioning,
navigational warnings must be given. Therefore, a station, which transmits
Message 21, could also transmit Safety Related Broadcast Message
(Message 14) upon detecting that the floating Aid-to-Navigation has gone
out of position or is malfunctioning, at the competent authoritys discretion.

The ABK-sentence is generated when a transaction, initiated by reception
of an ABM, AIR, or BBM sentence, is completed or terminated.
This sentence provides information about the success or failure of a requested
ABM broadcast of either ITU-R M.1371 messages 6 or 12. The ABK process utilizes
the information received in ITU-R M.1371 messages 7 and 13. Upon reception
of either a VHF Data-link message 7 or 13, or the failure of messages 6 or 12,
the AIS unit delivers the ABK sentence to the external application.
This sentence is also used to report to the external application the AIS units
handling of the AIR (ITU-R M.1371 message 15) and BBM (ITU-R M.1371
messages 8 and 14) sentences. The external application initiates an interrogation
through the use of the AIR-sentence, or a broadcast through the use of
the BBM sentence. The AIS unit generates an ABK sentence to report the outcome
of the AIR or BBM broadcast process.

Note: The message sequence number, together with the ITU-R M.1371 message
ID and MMSI of the addressed AIS unit, uniquely identifies a previously
received ABM, AIR, or BBM sentence.
Generation of an ABK sentence makes a sequential message identifier available
for reuse. The ITU-R M.1371 Message ID is used to determine the origin of the
message sequence identifier number. The following table lists the origins by

completed;
4 = late reception of a message 7 or 13 acknowledgement addressed
to ownship MMSI identified by; destination MMSI, acknowledgement
source MMSI, message sequence identifier, and message type. Late
reception means that the AIS unit did not have an acknowledgement
process active for the acknowledgement that was received.
ABM Addressed Binary And Safety Related Message
This sentence is used by the MFD for the transmission only via AIS channel in MFD.
This sentence supports ITU-R M.1371 messages 6 and 12. It provides an external
application with a means to exchange data using AIS. The message data is defined
by the application only not the AIS. This message offers great flexibility for
implementing system functions that use the AIS like a communications device.
After receiving this sentence, the AIS initiates a radio broadcast on the VHF Data
Link (VDL) of either message 6 or 12. The AIS will make up to four broadcasts of
the message. The actual number will depend on the reception of an acknowledgement
from the addressed destination AIS. The default time between retries is 4 sec.
Retries will not be attempted more frequently than 4 sec. Retries stop when
the appropriate acknowledgement (see ITU-R M.1371 messages 7 and 13) is
received. The AIS will make up to 4 broadcasts, original broadcast plus three retires.
This process could take 32 sec to complete.
The success or failure of the reception of this broadcast by the intended AIS
unit is confirmed through the use of the Addressed and binary Broadcast
Acknowledgement (ABK) sentence formatter, and the processes that support
the generation of an ABK-sentence. The AIS is also limited in the amount
of encapsulated data that can be sent in each slot and frame. If the length of
the message would exceed five slots, or the AIS broadcast would exceed the limit
of 20 RATDMA slot transmissions for the current frame, the AIS will return an
ABK-sentence with an acknowledgement of 2 message could not be broadcast.

Description of the MFD and Rhotheta RT-202 RDF Interface

DESCRIPTION OF THE MFD AND RHOTHETA RT-202


RDF INTERFACE
The MFD is processing a constant data flow supplied by Rhotheta RT-202 radio
direction finder according to certain rules. No messages are transmitted from
the MFD to RT-202. The message format is described in detail in RHOTHETA RT202. OPERATING INSTRUCTION. This document specifies the rules of processing
messages from RT202:

Data output protocol.


Each message starts with a header-sign (ASCII-sign for identifying the type of
message). Following headers are possible: S = hex53, P = hex50, V = hex56,
A = hex41, L = hex4C, N = 0x4E. Then follows the proper information,
consisting of three ASCII decimals: 0 to 9 = hex30 to hex39. As end mark two
ASCII final marks are used: CR = hex0D (CarriageReturn) and LF = hex0A
(LineFeed).

XXX

e.g., 124 corresponds to 1240 Hz

XXX
= 000353

Averaged DF value in degrees (average-value, resolution 2 degrees)

XXX
= 000359

Unvaried DF value in degrees (momentary value, resolution 1 degree)

Remarks.
The unaveraged DF value shows a certain spread, depending on the received
signal. It can be used, if required, as indicator of the DF value quality. When working
with the direction finder only, the displayed averaged value should be used:
Field S is the first to be processed. The message is further ignored if S
field contains 0xx or 2xx parameters. And, vice versa, it is processed if
the message contains 1xx parameter meaning that a bearing signal has
been received;
The second step is to analyse P field. Field P contains information
(in per cent) on the intensity level of the received MOB bearing signal
(transmitter of 121.5 MHz signal). Accordingly, the lower the level, the weaker
signal has been received. It should be noted that the signal processing level
is set direct from RT-202 sensor (for a detailed description, see RHOTHETA
RT202. OPERATING INSTRUCTION). The optimum condition would be
to make an identical setting of the processed signal level in RT-202 sensor
and in on SAR page of Tasks panel of ECDIS task. The signal is analysed
by comparing a parameter from P field and data entered by the operator
in Use the signal with the level of intensity more than XX % input window
on SAR page of Tasks panel of ECDIS task. If P parameter is lower than
the signal processing level set by the operator, the message is ignored.
Otherwise, the message is accepted for further processing;

Chapter 4. Interface Capabilities

411

Description of the MFD and Rhotheta RT-202 RDF Interface

If the two above conditions are fulfilled, the MFD processes field A
containing information on the MOB object bearing. It should be noted that this
is a relative bearing, whereas to be plotted in the ECDIS task or transmitted
to other ships via the AIS, the bearing should be corrected to true.

ATTENTION!
For the MFD MAN OVERBOARD functionality to operate with the radio direction
finder and AIS, the MFD is required to receive a valid compass heading value.
Otherwise, it will be impossible to plot a true MOB object bearing on the electronic
chart, or to transmit it to other targets via AIS facilities.

COM-Ports Interface

COM-PORTS INTERFACE
MFD system is equipped with NMEA ports, which are completely corresponding to
IEC 61162-1,2 Standard requirements.
The following terms are used in this Annex:

Talker NMEA port Output, which transmits data to other devices;

Listener NMEA port Input, which receives data from another device.

Fig. 186. COM-Ports interface diagram

All signal line A connections are connected in parallel with all device A connections,
and all signal line B connections are connected in parallel with all device
B connections. The shields of all Listener cables should be connected to the talker
chassis only and should not be connected at each listener.
The idle, marking, logical 1, OFF or stop bit states are defined by a negative voltage
on line A with respect to line B.
The active, spacing, logical 0, ON or start bit states are defined by a positive voltage
on line A with respect to line B.
To meet the demand of high reliability in industrial environment and to prevent the

General
Sentence Structure
A special Sentence Editor is used for the aforementioned purposes. The Editor
contains the database of like NMEA sentences, which are processed by the MFD.
When creating or editing sentences, the user specifies to the MFD the rules which
this sentence will be processed by.
The first step in the setting of parameter extraction rules is the determining
of the structure of a sentence containing parameters. Press New button:

Annex B. Additional Settings for Navi-Conning 4000

427

Adjustment of MFD Operation with NMEA Custom

While creating the sentence structure, the user sets the criterion for checking
the correctness of the sentence, which is being received. If at least one of
the characteristics of a newly created sentence does not correspond to
the characteristics of the sentence, which is being received, it will be ignored.
The sentence has the following characteristics:

Start Symbol sentence start symbol;

Talker information source identifier. If the identifier is specified, only those


sentences, which have the set identifier, will be processed. The rest of
the sentences, even if they have the same structure, will be ignored. If a
identifier isnt specified, all the sentences which have this structure, will be
processed regardless of the information source identifier;

Name sentence identifier. If the identifiers of the sentence which is being


received and which is being created do no match, they will be ignored;

Number of fields number of fields in the sentence. Where the number of fields in
a received sentence does not correspond to the value set by the user, the sentence
will be ignored;

Checksum a mandatory validity check performed on the data contained


in the sentences, calculated by the external device, appended to the message,
then re-calculated by the MFD for comparison to determine if the message
was received correctly. If these checksums do no match, the sentence
will be ignored.

Set several fields and press the Next > button. An example of creating a custom
NMEA will be provided in the next paragraph:

The next step is to determine the structure of sentence fields. Each field in a sentence
can contain the following characteristics:

428

Value parameter value;

Unit parameter measurement units;

Status parameter status;

Reference parameter reference;

Empty field.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Adjustment of MFD Operation with NMEA Custom

By default, fields in the sentence structure are empty, which corresponds


to the pressed Empty button.
To determine which parameter characteristics the selected field contains (value,
measurement units, status or reference), position the cursor on the necessary field
and press the appropriate button.

Parameter Value
Parameters may have digital and symbol values, which may be of constant or variable
length; this is why it is necessary to determine the format of the field containing
the parameter value. These settings are made at the fields structure formation stage.

Field formats are provided in the table below:

Adjustment of MFD Operation with NMEA Custom

Parameter Measurement Units


The parameter has the measurement units determined by the measurement unit
identifier, which arrives in a separate field of the same sentence as the parameter
itself. It is necessary to specify all the possible identifier values, which may arrive
in this field. Appropriate measurement units will be selected according to this identifier.
These settings are made at the field structure formation stage.

Factors for re-calculating all the measurement units to the system which
the MFD operates with are specified separately in MultiUnit column.

Parameter Status
The parameter may have a status, which determines its reliability. The status always
has two values: Valid/Invalid. The user determines characters, which may arrive
in Status field, at the field structure formation stage.

430

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Adjustment of MFD Operation with NMEA Custom

Parameter Reference
The parameter may have an additional characteristic: a reference, which may be
of two types:

Parametric, which differs the parameter from other parameters, whose value
arrives in the same sentence field. E.g., in MWV sentence, the reference
indicates theoretical or relative wind is specified in the given sentence;

Sign, which allows a positive or negative value to be assigned to the parameter


and then taken into account in the further processing. This reference always has
two values only. E.g., it is used in GLL for the ship coordinates (+ North,
- South) or XTD to specify the direction (+ starboard, - port).

Characters, which may arrive in Reference field, are determined by the user
at the field structure formation stage.

Empty Fields
An empty field (Empty button is pressed) is not processed by MFD.

Creating New Sentences Structure


As an example, we will consider an algorithm for retrieving parameters from
the NMEA MWV sentence, which can be used in much the same way for retrieving
parameters from any customised NMEA like sentence.
In NMEA Custom page press New button:

In Sentence header and structure window, which will open up, in Start symbol group
set the necessary start symbol by choosing the appropriate option button.
E.g., for MWV sentence, select $:

In Talker box, set the identifier of the device, which the sentence is supplied by;
to do this, enter it in block letters in Manual input box. The number of entered
identifier characters should be two. E.g., for MWV sentence which is supplied
by the wind sensor imitator, the identifier will be TE. Use Name text box to enter
the sentence identifier. The number of entered sentence identifier characters
should be three:

432

Use Number of Fields text box to enter the number of fields in the sentence, which is
being created. E.g., for MWV sentence, it is 5. If necessary, check Check Sum
checkbox for checksums comparison:

The formed sentence structure will be displayed in the information line in the top part
of Sentence header and structure window:

Press Next > button.


Specify the fields, which will contain parameter characteristics. E.g., for MWV
sentence, position the cursor on the first field containing the parameter value,
and press Value button:

Annex B. Additional Settings for Navi-Conning 4000

433

Adjustment of MFD Operation with NMEA Custom

Specify the format type for the field describing the parameter value. To do this,
select the required value from the drop-down list. E.g., Normal for the given value
of a MWV sentence parameter:

For Normal field type, set the format by selecting the appropriate option button
in Normal field group. E.g., for Wind Angle parameter of MWV sentence,
set Free-type format. This will be a variable length field containing integers
or numbers with floating point. If Strong format is set, the field will have a fixed value
and contain numbers with a set number of digits:

Use a similar procedure to specify fields containing values of other parameters,


e.g., the third field for MWV sentence.
Position the cursor on the field containing the parameter measurement units
(e.g., wind speed measurement units in MWV sentence) and press Unit button:

Press Add button. Position the cursor on a cell in Symbol column and double click
the left trackball/mouse button. Enter the measurement unit symbol and press <Enter>.

The pedestal should be mounted with its lid hinges pointed forward and cable glands
pointed astern. However the antenna swinging plane must be horizontal in all
directions when ship is upright on even keel. Consider giving ample space for
service, especially astern of the antenna group. If such space can not be achieved
then contact manufacturer for installation alternatives.
Note: The protection waveguide covers on the antenna, and pedestal must not be
removed until when mounting the antenna. Anyhow the waveguide joints may
not be uncovered when the antenna is not mounted.
Note: The fixing materials to fasten the antenna pedestal to the ships platform
are not provided by the manufacturer. Assuming a platform plate thickness
of 20 mm, four M10 stainless steel bolts of 65 mm length, with relative nuts
grooves and washers, must be used. The tightening couple is 44 Nm.

Antenna
The antenna and the pedestal must be run up the mast separately and then
assembled. The TXRX should not be lifted with the antenna already mounted.

General Information
Installation of the scanner unit entails carrying out the following operations,
preferably in the sequence outlined below:
1. Preparation of the site.
2. Bolting the Tuning Unit to the mounting platform (ships structure) as detailed in
Installation Drawing 65801050 supplied with the Turning unit.
3. Bolting the Antenna to the Support Casting as detailed in Installation Drawing
65601275 supplied with the Antenna.
4. Laying in and installing the cables for the Tuning unit in accordance with the
appropriate Cabling Schedules (including X-Band co-axial feeder).
5. Ensuring that in the Tuning Unit, the Motor Drive Board and the Pulse Bearing
Board are correctly set for the required High or Low Speed operation set via
their relevant jumper links.
Figure below also show installation details which are intended to duplicate those
provided with the equipment. However, as it is possible that changes may occur to
the equipment take precedence in the event of differences arising.

Installation of Scanner BridgeMaster E 10 kW X-Band Up Mast

Fig. 222. X-Band scanner masthead TX/RX 10 kW installation

Turning Unit

ATTENTION!
The Turning unit should only be lifted using the four fixing holes at the base of the
unit. The weight and spread of the Antenna can cause a free-standing Turning unit
to topple over. The Turning unit should therefore be bolted down onto its mounting
platform before attaching the Antenna and Support Casting to the Turning Unit.
When working on the Turning unit with the top casting raised, always ensure that the
locking bolt on the stay is in the locked position. DO NOT lift the Scanner Unit by the
Antenna, this is dangerous and will seriously damage the Antenna.
Note: The Turning unit is bolted to the mounting platform with Neoprene isolating
pads (4 off 65601251) between the Turning unit casting and the mounting
platform, to prevent Galvanic corrosion. Additional washers or pads may be
added for the purpose of leveling the mounting so that the Turning unit
casting is not subject to twist when the bolts are tightened. M10 washers may
be used as shims, or purpose made parts produced locally may be used.

assembly during installation.
Performance Monitor
The Performance Monitor comprises the Performance Monitor module, and an
associated control cable. The equipment is normally factory fitted.

Antenna
The Antenna is fitted to the Support Casting using the parts listed below which are
supplied with the antenna. Note that the holes in the support casing are
asymmetrically placed to prevent the antenna being fitted backwards. The support
casting has the letters FRONT visible from above to aid initial antenna location.

Scanner Speed Settings


Two scanner speed settings, LOW and HIGH, are available, depending on the
following settings of the Motor Drive Board and the Pulse Bearing PCB Assembly.

Motor Drive Board:


The position of the link LK1 fitted to the Motor Drive Board 65801811.
The link is set during installation and commissioning, and requires no tools to
change.
The factory default setting is LOW speed (28 RPM nominal).
Note, that with no jumper fitted the rotational speed defaults to HIGH speed.
Under no circumstances should the link position be removed whilst the motor is
running.
With the jumper in the position marked LO (pins 1&2 left hand pair), the
nominal scanner speed is 28 RPM.
With the jumper in the position marked HI (pins 2&3 right hand pair), the
nominal scanner speed is 45 RPM.

The position of the link LK1 fitted to the Pulse Bearing PCB Assembly
65801805.

Note: This link does not physically affect the rotational speed of the scanner, but
does affect the ability of the phase-locked loop within the board to track
the scanner rotational speed.

530

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Installation of Scanner BridgeMaster E 10 kW X-Band Up Mast

The factory default setting is LOW speed.


Note: With no jumper fitted the PCB defaults to HIGH speed configuration.
With the jumper in the position marked I (pins 1&2 the lower pair), the PCB is
configured for LOW speed operation.
With the jumper in the upper pair position (pins 2&3), the PCB is configured for
HIGH speed operation.
The link is set during installation and commissioning. The link can be moved
with the PCB in place using long nose pliers but the operation is not easy due to
the PCB mounting bracket which tends to obscure the position of the link. The
recommended method is to loosen the 2 Pozidrive screws that retain the
mounting bracket and slide the whole assembly to the right using the slotted
screw holes in the mounting bracket. The assembly can then be brought forward
into a more accessible position for the link to be removed. Take care during
removal and refitting of the mounting bracket not to damage the teeth on the
pulse disc assembly which run between opto-couplers mounted on the rear of
the Pulse Bearing PCB. Before re-tightening the 2 Pozidrfive screws, check that
both pairs of plain and single coil washers are above the top surface of the
mounting bracket and not trapped beneath it.
For ease of installation, it is recommended that this operation be carried out, if
required, before mounting the Turning unit aloft.

Fitting the Cable Glands


The installation cables are connected into the Turning unit via the appropriate cable
glands (see above table). The body of the gland fits through a hole in the casting
and is held in position by the Top Nut. Note the O ring seal, which is fitted below
the casting surface (input side). Two seals are provided with each gland as shown in
figure below. The lower seal provides for waterproofing, and the upper for EMC.
Some glands are designed to take a single cable whilst others are intended for
several cables. Unused glands are fitted with a blanking plug, and unused cable
entries are fitted with a sealing pin to maintain the seal.

Fig. 230. General view of cable glands

Note: Cable glands and blanking plugs are normally factory fitted to the Turning unit.

534

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Installation of Scanner BridgeMaster E 10 kW X-Band Up Mast

The waterproofing seal works by clamping onto the cable PVC sheath whereas
the EMC seal clamps onto the cable braid. It is important not to force the outer
sheath through the EMC seal, as the seal is liable to split. The braid is also
formed into a tail which is grounded by means of an adjacent earth tag. The fitting
procedure is detailed in figure below.

Fig. 231. Detailed view of cable gland assembly

Installation cables:
Unscrew the gland nut and remove the waterproof seal and the EMC gasket.
Feed the cables through the gland nut and the waterproof seal;
For the multicore cables strip the outer sheath to expose approximately 300
mm of braid, and for video coaxial cable to expose about 1200 mm of braid;
Push the braid back to expose approximately 50 mm of the inner cores;
Trim 50 mm off the cores, and pull the braid back and twist into a point;
Feed the cable through EMC gasket until it positioned as shown above;
For multicore cable flare the braid out to within approximately 15 mm of the
EMC gasket and form a tail;
For coaxial cable do not fit the connector at this time.

Assembly into the scanner unit:


Feed the assembled cables and seals into the gland body, and tighten the
gland nut to compress the waterproof seal;
Crimp the earth tags provided to the braids of the multicore cables, keeping
them as short as possible attach them with the screws provided. Trim and
make off the cable inners to the appropriate connectors;
The video coaxial cable does not plug into SKV on the input PCB, but is
connected to SKV on the Receiver Assy;
Sleeve the braid of the coaxial cable with the 6 mm sleeving provided;
Route the cable through the slot at the end of the filter box cover, along the
cable loom on the right hand side of the scanner unit. Use cable ties to clip it
to the loom;
Trim to length and fit the coaxial plug.

INSTALLATION OF NAVICO BR24 BROADBAND SCANNER


Introduction
The Navico Broadband radar uses FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave)
radar technology. Firstly it is solid state i.e. the transmitter is a semiconductor
device, not based on magnetron technology. Secondly, it transmits a 1ms long
signal of increasing frequency, rather than a short duration pulse. Thirdly, it
measures the distance to a target not by timing the returned echoes, but by
measuring the difference between the current transmitted frequency and echoed
frequency.
Additional benefits of FMCW radar are:

Safety:
Low energy emissions. 1/10th of a mobile phone;
Safe operation in anchorages and marinas;
Instant power up. No warm up required.

Short range performance:


Broadband radar can see within a few meters of the boat, compared to pulse
radars which cannot see closer than 30 meters;
Higher resolution clearly separates individual vessels and objects;
Up to five times better sea and rain clutter performance.

536

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Installation of Navico BR24 Broadband Scanner

Low power:
Suitable for small boats and yachts;
Easier installation with lighter cabling;
Great for yachts on ocean passage.

Instant power-up:
Conventional radars take 2-3 minutes to heat up the filament:
Safety 2 minutes is a long time if you are concerned about collision;
Convenience switch it on and use it.

Navico radar supports only single network connection.

Configuration
Navico BR24 broadband scanner is configured from the following unit types:

Broadband Scanner Unit BR24 part number AA010186;

Radar Interface Box RI10 part number AA010189.

Installation
Location of the Scanner
The radar's ability to detect targets greatly depends on the position of its scanner.
The ideal location for the scanner is high above the vessel's keel line where there
are no obstacles.
A higher installation position increases the radar ranging distance, but it also
increases the minimum range around the vessel where targets cannot be detected.
When you're deciding on the location, consider the following:

538

The length of the interconnection cable supplied with your radar is usually
sufficient. If you think you'll need a longer cable, consult your dealer before
installation. Optional cable lengths are 10 m (33 ft), 20 m (65.5 ft) and 30 m
(98 ft);

If you mount the scanner on a pedestal or base, ensure that rain and sea spray
can drain away rapidly, and the breather hole in the base can operate;

The scanner is usually installed parallel to the line of the keel.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Installation of Navico BR24 Broadband Scanner

DON'T DO THIS!

DON'T install the scanner too high up, which may cause degradation of the
radar picture over short ranges;

DON'T install the scanner close to lamps or exhaust outlets. The heat emissions
may damage the dome. Soot and smoke will degrade the performance of the
radar;

DON'T install the scanner close to the antennas of other equipment such as
direction finders, VHF antennas, GPS equipment as it may cause interference;

DON'T install the scanner where a large obstruction (such as an exhaust stack)
is at the same level as the beam, because the obstruction is likely to generate
false echoes and/or shadow zones;

DON'T install the scanner where it will be subjected to strong vibrations because
these vibrations could degrade the performance of the radar;

DONT install the scanner such that boat electronics with switch mode power
supplies (such as fish-finders and chart plotters) are in the beam of the antenna.

For requirements of the scanners location see table below.


Table 90. Requirements of the scanners location
Minimum distance to install near the
ships compass is 0.7 m (3.3 ft).

It is recommended not to install the


scanner on the same beam plane as a
conventional pulse radar. A pulse
radar must be set to STBY or OFF
when the BR24 is being operated.

If possible ensure that the location site


provides the scanner with a clear view
all round the vessel.

Installations on power boats that have


a steep planing angle, it is
recommended to tilt the scanner angle
down at the front. (Beam angle is
12.5 either side of center).

Mounting of the Scanner

Use the supplied mounting template and tape it securely to the chosen location
site.

Before drilling, check that:


You have oriented the mounting template correctly so that the front of the
scanner unit will face the front of the vessel;
The location site is not more than 18 mm (0.7") thick. If the location site is
thicker use longer bolts.

Annex F. Transas Scanners Installation and Adjustment

539

Installation of Navico BR24 Broadband Scanner

Note: The four bolts supplied are M8 x 30 mm. If you need to use longer bolts make
sure they are marine grade stainless steel and allow for minimum of 8 mm
(0.3") and maximum of 18 mm (0.7") of thread contact.

Use a 9.5 mm (3/8") drill bit to drill the four holes where shown on the mounting
template.

Remove the mounting template.

Connect the scanner interconnection cable (see paragraph "Wiring of the Radar
System below).

Route the connection cable through the cable retention channel.

CABLES INSTALLATION
General
Hand tool crimp for contact diameter of 1.6 mm. For examples of crimping
for standard and coaxial conductor:
1. Arrange in advance 30 mm of shrinkable sleeve with inner diameter of 25 mm.
2. Insert the piece of the shrinkable sleeve and the components of the core hitch
(contained in the installation kit of the cable) along the cable to fix it in the
special hole of the scanner unit.
3. Strip the cable for about 90 cm; collect the braided wire shield and shorten it to
obtain a length suitable to tighten it between the dies situated just after the input
hole of the cable.
4. Tighten the cable on the scanner unit with the components of the core hitch
inserted in advance.
5. Shrink the piece of shield in correspondence of metallic cable-stop and tight
it to assure a first fixing point of the cable.
6. The second fixing point is constituted by an adhesive plastic support already
present in the scanner unit. The cable is fixed with a cable-stop band contained
in the kit.
7. Strip all the conductors for about 5 mm. The procedure to prepare coaxial
cables is the following: strip the cables for about 5 cm, then separate the
metallic core from the shield; roll-up the shield and protect it with the shrinkable
sleeve so that the shield is drawn for about 5 mm. Strip also the metallic core
for about 5 mm. Crimp all the conductors with respective spade lugs for terminal
board supplied with the kit.

Scanner S-Band Down Mast Coaxial Cable Installation


The RF-signal between the Transceiver and the Antenna is guided through a special
Coax RF cable.
Note: The Coax cable shall not be to a radius less than 200 mm and must be
handled with care during the installation.
When installing the cable, start from the base of the Antenna Pedestal. A length
of approximately 30 cm should be left to allow replacement of the connector without
removing the cable.
As far as the coaxial cable handling is concerned, follow the instructions given below:

Do not lay curves with radius of less than 80 cm;

Install the cable far from hot exhaust ducts;

At the cable entry, leave a length of about 30 cm sufficient to allow any


necessary repair (replacement of connectors) without removing the cable.

Connect then the cable to the Antenna Pedestal.


Fix the cable into the supporting wall at intervals of at least 1 metre, paying attention
to avoid tension. The outside diameter of the cable is 23 mm (7/8). Protect the
cable with a U-shaped shield, like the waveguide, where it may suffer damage.
A standard cable gland should be used as deck gland. The hard PVC type is
recommended, as this is compatible with all deck materials and limits the amount
of pressure which can be applied to the cable. Enough pressure should be exerted
on the gland to ensure a watertight seal. Too much pressure will deform the cable
and cause a high standing-wave ratio.
Make bends and fixing of the coaxial cable prior to terminate the connector
to the transceiver.
This keeps the sliding of the inner conductor to minimum in case of minor cable
reshaping.
Coaxial cable cutting, trimming and flaring must be performed with the cable on vertical
position, its end looking down. This is to avoid fillings and chips entering the cable.
Do not use compressed air for cleaning, but wipe the cable termination with
a moistured cloth.
The procedure for terminating the connection to the TRANSCEIVER is as follows:
1. Cut and trim the free end of the cable as indicated in figure. Slightly bevel
the inner conductor.

574

2. Slide into the cable the thermo shrinkable sleeve, and then components 1
through 4, in sequence as shown in picture above:
thermo shrinkable sleeve;
external retaining ring (1) pointing to the direction shown in figure above;
flat washer (2);
silicon rubber O ring (3);
internal ring (4).
3. Slowly screw the lower retaining ring into the threaded outer conductor
of the coaxial cable (5). Proceed now with care and position the lower edge
of the retaining ring to the point where it is even with the outer conductor.
Check the position of these last two items and verify again the above step 2.
4. Slide the flange (6) into the cable.
5. Insert the end of the cable (with relevant items) into the connector body (7)
and push against its bottom end. Check that the inner conductor is centred
and then start tightening the external retaining ring; refer to following picture.

Check the length of the protruding inner conductor. It must be 28 mm0.1 mm.
In case it is longer, file it up to the proper length. Keep always the cable connector
pointed downward during this process. Before inserting the connector in the waveguide
adapter, check very carefully that the coaxial cable is aligned with the waveguide.
Put the O ring in the relevant slot of flange.
Do not force the teflon plug while inserting the connector in the guide. Using
the Allen wrench, tighten the flange firmly to the waveguide adapter. Make sure
that the retaining O ring is properly in place.

WAVEGUIDE INSTALLATION
Introduction
The installation, maintenance, or removal of waveguide parts requires qualified,
experienced personnel. Manufacturer installation instructions have been written for such
installation personnel. Antenna systems should be inspected once a year by qualified
personnel to verify proper installation, maintenance and condition of equipment.
Elliptical waveguide is supplied pressurised. An air inlet valve is included with each
pressurised length. Gaskets, silicone grease, connecting hardware and assembly
instructions are packed with unattached connectors.
Typical installation is shown in figure below.

Preparation and Inspection


Inspect waveguide for possible shipping damage and pressure loss. Waveguide
and connector assemblies have been pressure tested at factory before shipping.
Maximum allowable pressure drop for assembly over 20 ft (6.1 m) is 1lb/in2 (7 kPa)
in 24 hours from initial pressure of 10 lb/in2 (70 kPa). Each assembly is pressurized
with dry air to 10 Ib/in2 prior to shipping and result of factory pressure test is recorded on
inspection tag tied to assembly. Tire gauge can be used to check pressure. If waveguide
has pressure loss, check all joints for possible leaks especially at pipe threads. Refer to
paragraph Pressurisation of this chapter for pressure information.
Factory attached connector is shipped with blank flange attached to maintain
pressure during shipment. Do not remove flange until after waveguide is installed.
Field attachment of connector at Transceiver end must be completed before
hoisting. Attach connector to end of waveguide in accordance with instructions
in paragraph Elliptical Waveguide Connectors of this chapter.
Pressure test assembly prior to hoisting.

Annex G. Scanners Cables Handling

577

Scanner 25 kW X-Band Down Mast. Waveguide Installation

Hoisting
Obtain suitable hoist line to support weight of waveguide. Refer to table above
for weights per foot (metre). Place protective covering over connector to prevent
damage during hoisting. Attach robe sling or cable grip near end of waveguide
allowing sufficient length to reach Antenna Group input from hoisted line to keep
from dangling. Rope sling may be used in lieu of cable grip for every short lengths.
Use cable grips in accordance with instructions received.
Additional tying is done above and below cable grips to keep weight on hoist line
and not on waveguide. Make certain to allow slack in waveguide when tying and that
slack is maintained during hoisting, tying is accomplished with strong fiber-reinforced
tape or similar material applied generously at 15 or 20 ft (4.6 or 6.1 m) intervals as
waveguide is raised.
Hoist waveguide slowly. Careless handling can cause kinks, dents and scrapes.
Waveguide may be bent in both E and H planes. Do not make bends smaller than
minimum bending radius shown in table. Note that H plane minimum bending radius
is considerably larger than E plane radius. Waveguide bend can be formed by hand.
An improvised mandrel that will provide curved forming surface of equivalent radius
may be used, waveguide may be twisted slightly for flange alignment.
Use cable grip as temporary anchor to support waveguide until connector has been
properly mated with Antenna Group input. Provide sufficient slack to permit easy
flange alignment.
Anchoring
Maintain hoist line tension until anchoring is completed. Attachment to lighting
conduit or vertical angle irons runs is recommended in installations where antenna
mast do not provide adequate or convenient hanger support. Waveguide subject to
vibration or wind must not be left unsupported.
Space hangers approximately 1 ft (0.3 m) apart for first three at top of vertical run
and 4 ft (1.2 m) apart thereafter. If distance from feed termination to 1st hanger is
more than 4 ft, waveguide must be supported. Position hangers to hold waveguide
away from antenna mast, rubbing against edges can cause damage. Do not tighten
hangers excessively as dents or deformations can cause degradation in electrical
performance.
Hangers kit contain support brackets which snaps into slots on each side of hanger
base. See detail A-A. After each hanger is attached and support bracket is snapped
in, thread captivated nut to end of bolt as shown. Place waveguide into hanger, bend
hanger around waveguide and slip bolt into slot of bent tab, catching nut under tab.
Tighten bolt until hanger grips firmly. Excessive tightening may damage waveguide.
If jacket has been cut, apply vinyl tape to damaged area. Top and bottom of
waveguide should be grounded by low impedance conductors. Antenna Group input
connection cannot serve as top ground.

578

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Scanner 25 kW X-Band Down Mast. Waveguide Installation

Horizontal Runs
Route waveguide from base of mast to feed-thru flange and from feed-thru flange
to Transceiver.
It can be supported above or below roof. Attach waveguide to horizontal support
member using same type hangers and 4 ft intervals as in vertical run. Exposed
horizontal runs must be protected from weight of accumulated ice and damage from
falling ice other objects.
Waveguide Connections
Where is possible connect end of waveguide directly to Transceiver and to Antenna
Group input without any short interconnection (only the adapter must be used).
Otherwise, assemble rigid waveguide parts in accordance with the typical installation
drawing.
See that gasket and mating surface of flanges are clean. Use comothene, vythene
or other non-flammable fluid for cleaning. Do not apply silicone grease to flange
gaskets. Join flanges making certain gasket is in position. Add connecting hardware
and fasten flanges together, tightening screws evenly.
If factory prepared length of waveguide must changed, cut the waveguide to appropriate
length and attach connector to waveguide after required length of run has been
determined. Attach elliptical waveguide connector to E-bend elbow through the adapter.

Annex G. Scanners Cables Handling

579

Scanner 25 kW X-Band Down Mast. Waveguide Installation

Grounding
The grounding point is designed to provide electrical contact between the outer
conductor of the elliptical waveguide and the ships ground.
The waveguide should be grounded along the vertical run near the Antenna Group.
A section of the cable jacket is removed, and the ground strap tightly fastened
to the outer conductor. The connection is then wrapped in butyl rubber tape and
vinyl tape for protection from weather. Finally, a terminal is attached to the ground
wire. The terminal should be connected to the ships ground terminal board.
Do not make bends closer to the grounding point to prevent damage during the hoisting.

Elliptical Waveguide Connectors


STEP 1. Prepare waveguide as shown in picture below. End of waveguide must be
square. Use straight-edged piece of paper wrapped around waveguide downward
while cutting to keep copper chips from entering. Remove all burrs from cut and
of waveguide using knife and file. Clean exposed copper with solvent. Clean inside
of waveguide with bottle brush.

STEP 2. Add thin coating of silicone grease to large O ring gasket and place it into
groove inside clamping nut, then apply thin coating of silicone grease to smooth
inside surface of clamping nut that slides over smaller O ring (step 8). Place nut
over end of waveguide at distance from end as shown. Secure nut to waveguide
with several turns of tape covering end of nut to keep foreign matter from entering
during assembly operation.
STEP 3. Slip compression ring over waveguide until recessed edge bottoms against
jacket. Apply small amount of silicone grease to edge of jacket to aid in installing
compression ring. Alignment pin hole openings must face away from waveguide as
shown in pictures below.

580

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DISPLAY (v. 2.00.330). Installation Guide

Scanner 25 kW X-Band Down Mast. Waveguide Installation

STEP 4. Turn gasket inside out and place over end of waveguide. Apply very
thin of coating silicone grease to gasket threads, the flip gasket over and against
compression ring. Apply thin coating of silicone grease to outside surface of gasket.
Clean any silicone grease from exposed copper using solvent.
STEP 5. Slip recessed side of flare ring over gasket.
Alignment pin holes in flare ring and compression ring must be in line. Flare ring
must be pushed against compression ring as tight as possible. Approximate opening
between flare ring and compression ring should be as shown.
STEP 6. Use metal snips to make cuts into end of waveguide to depth and intervals
shown to form tabs. See following picture. Make cuts as close as possible to flare ring.

STEP 7. Flatten tabs against flare ring. Use mallet as shown on following picture.

Use only enough force to flatten tabs. Do not strike tabs so hard as to reduce
thickness of metal. Trim any tab that protrudes past outside of groove in flare ring.
After tabs are flattened and trimmed, tabs should be cleaned with solvent to remove
any silicone grease. Face off connector body with contacts tabs should also be
cleaned thoroughly so that no grease is present in mating RF contact surfaces.
Clean inside of waveguide with bottle brush.
STEP 8. Place smaller O ring gasket into groove in connector body. Do not apply
silicon grease to this gasket. Apply thin coating of silicon grease to rear outer
surface of compression ring. This will allow large O ring gasket inside clamping nut
to slide over compression ring.
STEP 9. Refer to figure 6. Place connector body against flare ring. Alignment pins
must be properly seated in alignment holes of flare ring and compression ring.
Untape and slide clamping nut over assembled part and screw it onto connector body.
Tighten connection with wrenches. Use adjustable wrench on rectangular portion of
connector body to hold it in position while clamping nut is tightened. Turn clamping
nut only (do not turn connector body).

STEP 10. Waveguide should be check for leaks whenever connectors are attached,
when connector-attached waveguide is received at site, or after installation.

Annex G. Scanners Cables Handling

581

At dependable method is to apply soap solution to cable connector and pneumatic fittings.
When mating two UG type flanges with the gasket grooves, two flange gasket must
be used, if flange with gasket groove is mated to flange without groove, use one
flange gasket. Two mating EIA type flanges use only one flange gasket. Do not
apply silicone grease to flange gaskets.

Wall/Roof Feed-Through
These wall/roof feed-through kits are designed to permit weatherproof path through
a roof or wall for elliptical waveguide. Each kit can be mounted to metal, wood or
concrete. A kit consists of a rubber boot, two metal flange halves, sealing washers,
and an adjustable clamp.

STEP 2. Insert the waveguide or cable through the entrance hole and connect
it to the entrance hole and connect it to the components inside the building.
STEP 3. Apply silicone grease to the hole and slit of the rubber boot. Place
the boot on the waveguide or cable and over the entrance hole. Mark the locations
of the mounting holes.
STEP 4. Remove the boot and drill the mounting holes 5/16 (8 mm) through the
wall or roof. For concrete, either drill holes through the material or drill larger holes
deep enough to insert bolt anchors.
STEP 5. Place the boot around the waveguide or cable and over the entrance hole.
Position the flange halves in the groove of the boot and align all of the mounting
holes. Fasten the assembly with 1/4 bolts, flat washers, and nuts obtained locally.
Place the sealing washer supplied under the bolt heads as shown.

Pressurisation
After all connections have been completed, pressurise waveguide. Changes in
temperature can cause moisture from outside air that enters waveguide to condense
and seriously impair efficiency, so waveguide must be under pressure at all times.
If moist air has entered, must be purged. Remove gas port plug located on
connector at Antenna Group end of waveguide, and purge waveguide continuously
until it is dry. After purging, replace gas port plug and pressurise waveguide.
Dry air is normally used for pressurising. Dry nitrogen may also be used. After
installation, check waveguide connections for leaks. Use commercial leak detector
or liquid detergent over joints and check for bubbles. Un-broken soap film over entire
joint for several minutes will indicate very small leaks.
