Products/Services

  • VigilantSea™ Ship Security System VigilantSea™ is a Ship Security System consisting of two complimentary systems which together supply total intrusion protection. The VigilantSea 4000™ Surveillance System (VSS 4000™) provides a constant watch on deck and the area surrounding the ship. The VigilantSea 3000™ Controlled Access System (VSA 3000™) grants the right of entry only to those who are authorized in restricted areas of the ship. Both systems are easy to use, ruggedly designed for the shipping industry and fully compliant with the ISPS Code. The systems may be expanded to include additional cameras or controlled access points. VSS 4000™ and VSA 3000™ are designed to work together, but each may be installed as a stand-alone system. Either system may be integrated into a ship’s current automation or alarm systems. VigilantSea 4000™ System Overview The VigilantSea 4000™ (VSS 4000™) was designed as an effective and reliable surveillance system for continually monitoring and detecting activities onboard and around the ship. Fixed and Pan/Tilt Zoom Cameras feature high resolution video and weather-proof, stainless steel housings for low maintenance and high performance. Camera control is managed at the Control Stations which have robust client/server based technology utilizing standard Windows 2000 operating systems with dependable Ethernet communication. The Server Control Station (SCS) captures live video from multiple cameras for viewing, recording, archiving and/or distribution to the Client Control Station (CCS). Video event recording may be non-stop, scheduled or customized as required by the user. The system can be configured to use motion detection on any or all cameras to ensure that an intruder will be detected and an audible and/or visual alarm may be initiated.The Camera Keyboard conveniently features a trackball for software navigation, push buttons for camera selection and zoom control and a joystick for easy camera positioning. Vibration resistant Flat Panel Monitors display video images one at a time or simultaneously as required. The Camera Power Distribution Panel (CPD) is a heavy-duty, centralized source of camera power and control. Designed for straightforward installation, the CPD is assembled with industrial grade components for long term reliability. VigilantSea 3000™ System Overview The VigilantSea 3000™ (VSA 3000™) was designed as an effective way to prevent unauthorized access into the restricted areas of a ship. Numeric Keypads grant access into a restricted area once a valid PIN number has been entered. Electromagnetic Door Locks are deactivated by Numeric Keypads and Request to Exit Pushbuttons for hassle free entry and exit of crew, while prohibiting access to unauthorized persons. All components consist of ruggedly constructed stainless steel parts for dependable operation. Access control is managed at the Control Station which has robust client/server based technology utilizing standard Windows 2000 operating systems with dependable Ethernet communication. The Control Station is used to configure access rights and monitor and report access activity and door lock status. Management tools for crew and guest records are also part of the system. Access point events and messages may be viewed as they occur with corresponding date and time stamp per access event. When a forcibly gained intrusion has been detected at a controlled access door or hatch an alarm will sound. In the event of a ship’s General Alarm condition all door locks will be de-energized, allowing the doors to be opened freely. Vibration resistant Flat Panel Monitors display access and alarm monitoring screens. The Access Control Panel (ACP) is a heavy-duty, centralized source of access power and control. Designed for straightforward installation The ACP is assembled with industrial grade components for long term reliability.

  • Gangway Call ™ - Request to Board System Description Gangway Call is a two component system designed to alert a ship’s crew of an on-shore request to board the vessel via the gangway. The first component is a Shore Call Station housing a call button in a rugged weatherproof bollard which is placed on shore. The call button is used by anyone requesting to board the vessel. The second component, the Deck Signal Unit hangs on the railing of the ship’s deck and consists of a strobe light as a visual alert and a horn as an audible signal to the crew. Application The Gangway Call System was developed specifically to enhance ship security. When gangways and ladders are not accessible, it allows personnel or visitors on the dock wanting to board to signal ship’s crew to request access to the vessel.

  • GPIC® - Ship Loading and Unloading Control System System Description The GPIC® System was developed specifically for gravity type self-unloading vessels with multiple gates. It is a remotely controlled Gate Position Indication and Control System that also monitors the cargo profile along the entire length of the tunnel belt conveyors. The GPIC® System is easily adapted to every type of hydraulically operated gate design used in the industry. Application Designed specifically for gravity self-unloading vessels, the GPIC® System is customizable to suit the gate requirements of new builds, conversions, and retrofits.

  • E.R. Guardian ™ - Engine Room Monitoring System Description The E.R. Guardian ™ is an engine room monitoring system that was engineered specifically for monitoring large diesel engines and generators. Analog and digital field devices are monitored and displayed in real time and alert operators of new alarms. The E.R. Guardian™ comes equipped with a large flat panel monitor that mounts easily into an existing or new console providing graphical at-a-glance monitoring. A trackball is used for configuring analog and digital instrumentation connected to the E.R. Guardian™ and for alarm management. Application The E.R. Guardian™ was designed specifically for new installations and to enhance or replace existing (outdated analog meters and discrete controls) engine monitoring systems. The E.R. Guardian™ is compatible with almost any type of analog or digital instrument used to monitor motors and generators. Therefore the E.R. Guardian™ integrates well with existing and new installations.

  • Ballast Commander ™ - Ballast Control and Monitoring System System Description Ballast Commander™ was engineered specifically for monitoring ballast tanks and controlling associated devices.
