DP Alert System
The DP Alert System is used during critical operations such as diving, drilling, pipelaying or other critical operations, to give a general alert of any degradation of the DP system or the vessel’s ability to continue the operation.
The DP Alert System is highly scalable and support up to 4 alert levels. The DP Alert Control Panel is used to manually change the alert level and escalate or de-escalate the alert status as required. This status is repeated as visual and audible signals at appropriate locations around the vessel. The DP Alert Panel is used to acknowledge an alert.
The DP Alert Controller is used for monitoring and control of the HMI modules and communicates with these modules through hardwiring. Its main functions are:
- Monitoring and control of the status of the DP Alert Control Panel.
- Status control of light columns and DP Alert panels.
Ex approved editions of DP Alert Control Panel, DP Alert light column and DP Alert sounders are supported for installation in hazardous area zone 1. Automatic DP Alert function is supported when interfaced with K-Pos DP system. The DP Alert System complies with IMCA M 103 and IMCA D 010.
