Preface
This Quick Installation Guide describes installation and registration of ORCA. ORCA is
designed to combine both an easily operated and multifunctional ECS as well as an overall
coverage of services provided out of one hand.
ORCA works with different combinations of hardware. This can be either a touchscreen unit,
or non-touchscreen in combination with a hardware keyboard (incl. trackball).
The documentation corresponds to the respective software version. Nevertheless,
occasionally the software may differ from the functionality described due to technical
reasons.

4.1 Network

This task becomes important in case you operate ORCA not as a single station but with two
or more units. Here the workstations within the network are displayed together with IP
address and rank.

It is possible to change the IP address or the rank of the unit. To do this, tap on and
select an entry from the list. Then tap on Apply.

Note:
In case of a multiscreen system a main screen has to be defined within ORCA.

The unit with the highest rank operates as master station, while rank “0” defines the
planning station.

Example with 3 stations on board:


Master Station: Rank 2; IP address: 192.168.11.10
Backup Station: Rank 1; IP address: 192.168.11.11
Planning Station: Rank 0; IP address: 192.168.11.12

Sensor Pairing/Sensor Page Overview


In the table you can assign the respective sensor to the corresponding com port.
The default settings are:
 Com1 = GPS2 (baud rate 4800)
 Com2 = RADAR/ARPA1 (baud rate 4800)
 Com3 = GPS1 (baud rate 4800)
 Com4 = GYRO (baud rate 4800)
 Com5 = LOG (baud rate 4800)
 Com6 = AIS (baud rate 38400)

The set of the sensors actually connected to ORCA may differ from the one pre-configured in
the delivered product. Use the tick box to change the assignment accordingly.

For example, if your gyro is connected to Com1 tap on the tick mark to unselect Gyro from
Com 4 and GPS2 from com1, and set the tick mark for GYRO on Com1.
