Vessel Management Systems (VMS) provide for continuous monitoring & time based records of various parameters like temperature and pressure level, for ship systems like Main Engine and Diesel Generators, Bilge System, Advanced Fire Detection Systems (AFDS), Pressure Air System, Thruster System and so on. The System has DACU (Data Acquisition Control Unit), a rugged PC workstation (for monitoring and controlling), and a communication network. The system monitors various parameters like Temperature, Pressure, Speed, etc. and generates Audio Visual alarms in case of their abnormality; it also helps to take appropriate action for safe navigation of ship. VMS also controls various motors and pumps.
