IT Prerequisites

Shore Connection TELSCOPE communicates with a cloud based shore system through an encrypted VPN connection. It exchanges data and receives TELSCOPE and operating system updates. The relevant IP addresses of the shore system are mentioned below. The ship's network administrator must be aware of the installation and will usually have to add some firewall rules to allow TELSCOPE to connect to shore and make it available on the ship's network. Accessing TELSCOPE onboard TELSCOPE is a web a...

Network Setup & Security

General Information Integration and connection of TELSCOPE to Ships IT-Infrastructure shall be done in cooperation with and be approved by the ship owners IT-department securing that the Installation complies to IT and Cyber Security rules and recommendations. TELSCOPE can work as a "Stand Alone" system with one TELSCOPE server also acting as a TELSCOPE Workstation with connections to Internet or be part of a larger ships network. This chapter provides a guide to different level of TELSCOPE...

Physical installation

Installation Overview The following illustration provides an overview of mounting and wiring of TelScope. As a minimum, TelScope shall be connected to an IMO approved INS system or GNSS receiver (f.ex. GPS) for position and time. Mounting Monitor unit The monitor unit can be flush mounted in a console panel, or mounted on desktop using optional accessories. When selecting a mounting location, keep in mind the following points: - Select a location where the display unit can be vie...

Setup TELSCOPE without connecting a monitor

TELSCOPE can be setup without connecting a monitor by connecting a laptop through the "service port" enp2s0 (lower right). The TELSCOPE setup service is reachable at http://10.10.10.10. First the laptop must be configured to be in the 10.10.10.0/24 network. This can be done by following these steps: (These steps are for Windows 10 but are similar for other operating systems). 1. Click the network tray icon. 2. Click "Network & Internet settings". 3. Click "Change adapter options". ...

Network setup

Network setup Turn the system on and connect a LAN cable in the back of the system in the port named enp3s0, this is an imporatant step for the rest of the setup to work. Press the Automatic Setup (DHCP) button to let TELSCOPE automatically setup IP settings. If you want to use a static IP provided by another source press the Manual Setup (Static IP) button to access the next step where you will enter your static IP address. Network setup check After either Automatic setup or Manual...

Admin User

Admin user Write the information on this page down, this is imortant as it will not be available after starting TELSCOPE. This user will be used for the initial TELSCOPE setup.

Data Collection Serial

Data Collection At this page the serial ports on the back of the system is either enabled or disabled. At least GPS data should be configured for a working TELSCOPE installation. To make changes, disable the desired serial port. The USB ports at the back of the TELSCOPE server are labeled with the same text as in this page. Data will be shown (if received) in the box below baudrate selection. IEC 61162-1 / NMEA Sentences in use TelScope can make use of the following IEC 61162-1 / NMEA s...

TECDIS link to TELSCOPE

TECDIS link to TELSCOPE TECDIS 4.8.3.6 s4 provides the following link to TELSCOPE To activate the serial output to TelScope: - Edit C:\Program Files (x86)\TECDIS\TELchart.ini. - Locate the setting "serial_PTLK_port" in the [Options] section, and set this to the serial port number connected to TelScope. To add output: - Edit C:\Program Files (x86)\TECDIS\TELchart.ini. - Locate the setting "serial_PTLK_all" in the [Options] section, and set this to 1. To adjust the baud ra...

BAM interface over IEC 61162-1

Connection to bridge alert management systems (BAM) TelScope can be connected to the BAM system using the IEC 61162-1 (NMEA 0183) protocol. Serial port ttyUSB2 should be used for this connection. TelScope exchanges messages as specified in ISO-21745 (Electronic record books for ships) and in accordance with the IEC 62923 (Bridge alert management) specification. The following alerts may be transmitted on this interface: - Storage fault - Alert ID: 3063, Instance 1 - Lost recording - ...

VDR

TelScope sends logbook data to the VDR through a serial connection. Serial port USB3 (D) pin 6,7 / 38400 is used on the Telscope Primary Server Note that data is ONLY sent when data (event) is added in the logbooks. In the VDR setup the signal must be set to Time Stamp check at the port to (0) otherwise the VDR will alarm. The connection is unidirected, i.e. no data is sent from the VDR to TelScope. The data is formatted as NMEA TXT sentences. The talker is RB. The data will typically sp...
