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:

  1. Select a location where the display unit can be viewed conveniently.
  2. Select a location where vibrations are down to a minimum, try to avoid vibrations by adding strength to console where monitor is about to be installed.
  3. Locate the unit out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources because of heat that can build up inside the cabinet.
  4. Locate the equipment away from places subject to water splash and rain.
  5. Leave sufficient space on the sides and rear of the unit to facilitate maintenance.
  6. A magnetic compass will be affected if the monitor unit is placed too close to the magnetic compass. Observe the compass safe distances to prevent deviation of a magnetic compass.
  7. An optional monitor bracket can be supplied for tabletop installations.

Processor unit

The processor unit can be mounted inside a console or other suitable space. When selecting a mounting location, keep in mind the following points:

  1. Select a location where vibrations are down to a minimum, try to avoid vibrations by adding strength to console where the processor is about to be installed.
  2. Locate the unit away from heat sources because of heat that can build up inside the cabinet.
  3. Locate the equipment away from places subject to water splash and rain.
  4. Leave sufficient space on the sides and rear of the unit to facilitate maintenance and interconnection cabling.
  5. A magnetic compass will be affected if the processor unit is placed too close to the magnetic compass. Observe the compass safe distances to prevent deviation of a magnetic compass.

Do not protrude the housing with screws to fasten the processor. Straps should be used to fasten the processor at its location, without protruding the housing. Straps are not supplied and must be arranged locally. Check that front of processor can easily be accessed and that cables can be easily arranged in the back of the processor.

The processor is suitable for 19” rack-mounting with optional rack mounting kit. Height is 3U. Two units can be mounted side by side in the rack with optional rack mounting kit.

Keyboard and trackball

Keyboard and trackball must be mounted close together, such that both can be operated simultaneously by one person. When selecting a mounting location, keep in mind the following points:

  1. Select a location where the control units can be operated conveniently.
  2. Locate the units away from heat sources because of heat that can build up inside the cabinet.
  3. Locate the equipment away from places subject to water splash and rain.
  4. Determine the mounting location considering the length of the signal cable between the keyboard unit and the processor unit.

Wiring and signal distribution

The installation overview shows an indication of possible means of signal distribution. During installation actual need for signal distribution must be verified by installer, depending on signals available and actual hardware installation on the specific vessel.

Com Ports

The COM ports are equipped with Phoenix 5-pin connectors and are intended for IEC 61162-1 (NMEA) connections. As a minimum, TelScope shall be connected to an IMO approved INS system or GNSS receiver (f.ex. GPS) for position and time.

 

Network

Ensure that the processor unit network connectors are wired according to their intended purposes.

Power

Ensure that the processor unit is connected to both 110-220 VAC and 24V emergency power with the following connectors (optionally via UPS).

Video

The monitor may be connected using any of the provided display connectors. Ensure that the processor and monitor units are mounted and wired with common ground.

USB

Use the provided bracket to block out USB connectors that are not in use.
