Rate of Turn

This is a digital interface for connecting and calibration of EBF rate of turn sensors. The module can be fitted on to a DIN rail. The information is provided in MODBUS format, making the sensor fit into the standard SCADA applications. Part of AlphaTurn CCR-ZKR approved indicator

Data distribution

The NMEA distribution module is used when IEC61162 signals from a sensor must be distributed to multiple listeners. The system provides galvanic isolation between talker and listeners and between listeners to avoid problems when a listener is influencing the signal. Through BUSBAR connection you can create as many outputs as you want.

Analog to digital

The analog interface converts analog to digital signals. Supported signals include 0-20mA, +/- 5/10/20V and potentiometer signal for using with dimmers or rudder feedback units. The analog interface converts the analog signal to a digital MODBUS and IEC61162-1 signal.

Touchpad

Full, flexible and ergonomic control is a leading principle in the AlphaBridge system, with trackpad control of the same type and quality as used by the aviation industry. Available in grey or black, the touchpad acts as a standard mouse, suitable for left and right-handed operation on any USB capable workstations. This touch pad is extremely suitable for wheelhouses which endure vibration for example, when a lot of engine power or thrust is used. With the touchpad having no moving parts and thus no rolling ball, the cursor is left at exactly the same position as the last operation. Naturally a speaker is integrated for audible feedback when needed. The touchpad includes our snap on mounting system which allows for a straightforward installation.

Rudder feedback units

The rudder feedback units consist of aluminum housing and are available as medium or heavy-duty versions. The output can be connected to the analog module. The rudder feedback units contain a potentiometer, which is proportional to the rudder angle. Next to this, the heavy-duty version contains additional limit switches.

The rudder feedback units can be mechanically coupled to the rudder post by chain or a transmission link. The continuously transmitted accurate rudder angle data will be received by the analog interface. It converts the analog signal to a digital Modbus and IEC61162-1 signal and can be transmitted to any AlphaLine Repeater display capable of displaying graphical rudder information.

MFS with joystick

The MFS joystick system has been developed for special customer needs and is programmed to fit any need for a joystick system. This system could, for example, be used for a searchlight to control pan and tilt with the joystick and beam setting with the integrated rotary knob. Also think of camera control to pan and tilt of the camera with the joystick, zooming in and out with the integrated rotary knob.

Note that the MFS with joystick is a customized product and requires design according to bridge layout and functionality.

MFS with rotary encoder

Reflecting the flexibility of AlphaBridge, it is easy to specify and personalize all control functions on demand using the 5-inch MF touch display with rotary encoder designed to control computer systems from a single or sitting workplace. This intuitive, intelligent rotary switch enables the operation and control of each JRC Multi Function Display. It also offers additional features such as when interfaced with a JRC radar, RAIN or GAIN can be selected directly from the touch display and adjustments quickly made by rotating the knob.

Note that the MFS with rotary encoder is a customized product and requires design according to bridge layout and functionality.

AlphaTMC

The Transmitting Magnetic Compass (TMC) is a product used as an addition to traditional magnetic compasses. It is used to show the analog compass digitally, making the analog compass as usable as any other (gyro) compass. The TMC+ adds the possibility to connect a GPS antenna for position data and a calculation to show true heading as well.
