For a clear view

Control and visualization solutions ensure maximum safety, even in rough seas and difficult light conditions.

Due to their exposed environment, ships place very exacting requirements on the reliability of automation systems. Likewise, clear visualization and operator guidance are indispensable for the safe operation of a vessel, even in rough seas and varying light conditions.

Phoenix Contact offers tailor-made solutions for the ship's bridge: from the reliable control solution, thanks to failsafe redundancy, to maritime operation and monitoring devices.

Your advantages

  • Tested quality: certified according to GL, LR, BV, DNV, ABS, and EN 60945
  • Inexpensive solutions for modernization and system extension
  • Maritime HMIs and industrial PCs with compass safe distance in accordance with ISO R 694 and DIN EN 60945 Section 11.2

Operator panels for maritime applications

HMI for use on the bridge

For use on the bridge, you need HMI devices that satisfy the high requirements on board vessels.

Along with the integrated alarm horn, the scope of functions also includes dimming the industrial, resistive touch displays. External signaling devices can be controlled via the floating output.

Redundant multi-client visualization

Visualization on a maritime HMI  

Networked visualization thanks to multi-client solution

With our operation and monitoring solutions, you can ensure that the right information is available at the right place.

To this end, the clients access a redundantly designed server. You determine the access rights on a central industrial PC and specify which subsets each client should have. This is based on hardware and software that is specifically tailored to shipbuilding.

Solutions for wiping systems

Optimum view from the bridge

The captain must have a clear view at all times in order to ensure safety on board.

Thanks to the reliable automation of wiping systems, you can ensure the safe operation of a vessel even in rough seas.

Easily configurable, networked visualization

Implement a networked multi-client visualization with access to maritime touch panels based on a redundant OPC server. You can keep an eye on alarm and monitoring functions at all times thanks to access to a consistent database at various locations on the vessel. The redundantly designed system ensures high-availability data communication on board. Lighting and air conditioning can also be conveniently controlled via the HMI.
