Tab. 1 :

Functional and hardware levels of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B

Communication between the three levels is r ealized separately for each propulsion arran- gement on a redundant field bus (propulsion arrangement bus). The devices on the field automation level of a propulsion arrangement are interconnected on the same field bus.

The propulsion components (engine, gear) are c onnected to the field automation level by parallel cabling.

The various propulsion arrangements communi cate via a field bus (RCS coordination field bus) which connects the devices on the processing level.

Additional optional devices on the operating l evel of a propulsion arrangement are connec- ted on a field bus (sensor/actuator bus).

This manual only describes the devices on the processing and operating levels of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B. Field automation l evel devices are described in sepa- rate manuals (these may be specific manuals for a particular order or applica- tion).

1.1.3.3 Bus communication

Field bus for propulsion arrangement

The propulsion arrangement field bus is a redundant field bus (CAN protocol) on which the local monitoring and control units of the ECS-5 (Engine Control Unit, Gear Control Unit etc.) of a propulsion arrangement communicate wit h each other (shaft-related field bus).

On RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B, the control lever panels of the propulsion arrangement are directly connected to this field bus. A maximum of eight control lever panels can be con- nected. The optional manual controller is cons idered as one control lever panel in this case.

RCS coordination field bus

The RCS coordination field bus (CAN protoc ol) connects the Remote Control Systems of the various propulsion arrangements on multipl e-shaft plants. The RCS coordination field bus is connected to control lever panel ROS 2 on the main control station of each propul- sion arrangement. Up to four RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B systems can communicate on the RCS coordination field bus.

The RCS coordination field bus exclusively transmits data relevant to the RCS.

Sensor/actuator bus (S/A bus)

An optional sensor/actuator bus (CAN protoc ol and low data transmission rate) can be installed on each ROS 2 control lever panel. Up to six PAN control panels serving as external control units can be connected to the sensor/actuator bus.

1.1.3.4 Process interfacing

The field automation level PIMs acquire measuring point data relevant to the RCS and activate final control elements. The PIMs operate independently as they may also incorpo- rate additional monitoring and control functions for the plant (e.g. gear control).

1.1.3.5 Interfaces to other MTU systems and devices

RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B communicates with MTU Monitoring and Control System MCS-5 or less recent MTU engine management systems via the propulsion arrangement field bus and possibly via a Programmable Process Station (PPS) or additional PIMs.

RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B also communicates with the MTU dialog unit, MTU Backup Data Module (BDM) and MTU Operating Data Recor der (ODR) via the propulsion arrangement field bus.

1.1.3.6 Interfaces to systems pr oduced by other manufacturers

RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B can be connected to a wide range of systems produced by other manufacturers (engine control units, monitoring and control systems, autopilots) using PIMs or process stations (CPS) for specific applications.

The housing of control lever panel ROS 2 (3/1) is equipped with displays, controls and the remote control electronics. A connection box is also required for installation of ROS 2.

The connection box is available in two versions which vary in the degree of protection they offer: One version (3/2) fulfills the requirements f or installation in exposed control stations, the other version (3/3) is intended for use in enclosed areas only.

The housing of the control lever panel fulfills pr otection requirements for exposed control stations, i.e. the same version can be used in both locations.

Fig. 4 : Control lever panel ROS 2 of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B: Displays and controls

The control lever panel incorporates the following displays and controls:

¯ Control lever handle (4/1)

¯ LC propulsion stage scale (4/2)

¯ LC graphic display (4/3)

¯ Four round keys (4/4), so-called function keys

¯ Three rectangular luminous pushbuttons (4/5)

Other elements in the housing of the control lever panel relevant to part 1 of this manual are:

¯ Double potentiometer

¯ Printed circuit board RCI 3 with buzzer

The control lever handle (4/1) is used to set the desired propulsion stage. The handle rests in the position to which it is set. It also locks gently into place in three positions:

¯ “Engage ahead” lock

¯ “Disengage” lock (zero lock)

¯ “Engage astern” lock

Part

Page

12

Structure and function

The term “neutral setting” is used to describe the zero lock position.

The double LC propulsion stage scale (4/2) shows the current thrust setting of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B and the propulsion stage set at the control lever handle concerned (refer to chap. 1.2.4.2 for details).

The three rectangular luminous pushbuttons (4/5) are used to execute the main functions of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B and also serve as signal lamps. Pushbutton assignment is fixed and binding (not order-specific). Re fer to chap. 1.2.4.3 for details.

The four round function keys (4/4) are associated with the LC graphic display and do not serve as signal lamps. These keys control the display on the LCD. Some RCS functions can also be initiated with these keys. Key assignment varies depending on the page dis- played on the LCD. Refer to chap. 1.2.4.4 for details.

The LC graphic display (4/3) shows engine speed, control stations, operating modes and fault messages. It also displays the contex t-sensitive assignment of the function keys (4/4). Refer to chap. 1.2.4.4 for details.

Two potentiometers are located inside the hou sing. They acquire inclination of the control lever handle independently of each other (redundant).

Printed circuit board RCI 3 is located in the housing. This PCB is the heart of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B. It represents the central c omputer and processes pushbutton actua- tion/illumination and audible alarm signals locally.

A socket is provided at the rear of the housing which is protected by a flap. It is used to

connect the MTU dialog unit or MTU Backup Data Module.

Connection box for exposed control stations

Printed circuit board COB 10 inside the connection box is used to connect the control lever panel (power supply, buses and any external alarm units).

Four cable entries for ship’s cables are screwed into the back of the housing. A grounding stud is also provided.

A pressure compensating element is attached to the bottom of the connection box. It is

used for pressure compensation between the inside of the housing and atmosphere

without allowing the ingress of moisture or dust.

The open side of the connection box is delivered with a cardboard cover showing the con- nection diagram.

Connection box for enclosed areas

Printed circuit board COB 10 inside the connection box is used to connect the control lever panel (power supply, buses and any external alarm units).

A grounding stud is provided on a side panel of the connection box.

The top side of the connection box is delivered with a cardboard cover showing the con- nection diagram.

Dimming and contrast

Lighting and background illumination of all illu minated elements (keys, LC graphic display, LC propulsion stage scale) of ROS 2 can be dimmed. Brightness is regulated either locally with the appropriately assigned function key or by a dimmer setting on one of the connec- ted buses.

Not only dimming, but also the contrast can be adjusted on the LCDs (graphic display, pro- pulsion stage scale). Contrast is regulated locally by pressing the appropriately assigned function key.

Dimming and contrast settings are stored when the operating voltage of the control lever panel is switched off.

Options

The following optional accessories can be connected to each control lever panel:

¯ External PAN control unit(s) with up to 30 pushbuttons

--

Via sensor/actuator bus

--

Pushbutton functions are configured on an order-specific basis by MTU

¯ External alarm unit

--

Horn, beacon etc.

Fig. 5 : Control lever panel of RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B: All segments on the LC propulsion stage scale

Note:

Fig. 5 shows all the LC segments on the propulsion stage scale for purposes of explanation. This display only appears during the lamp test in normal operation.

Two narrow parallel LCD windows with individually-controlled LC segments (see fig. 5) serve as a propulsion stage scale. The two windows are controlled synchronously and are thus redundant.

LC segments which are not flashing represent the so-called master display on a control lever panel. This simultaneously represents a pseudo analog propulsion stage setting dis- play and a binary clutch setting display:

¯ The number of visible rectangular LC segments in the “Ahead” or “Astern” field indicates the current thrust setting output by RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B on the bus. The thrust setting is displayed as a propulsion stage ranging from “5 astern” to “10 ahead” in increments of 0.5.

¯ The RCS outputs neutral settings (“Idling speed” and “Disengage”) when the circle at “0” is displayed instead of the rectangular elements.

¯ The triangular elements indicate the GCU setting for the gear (“Engage ahead” or “Engage astern”).

A flashing LC segment (so-called slave display) also indicates the propulsion stage corres- ponding to the handle setting on any control lever pane currently not in command 2) . Fig. 6 shows an example.

The numbers on the LC propulsion stage scale are always displayed providing that the operating voltage is applied.

Pushbutton illumination states

Each of the luminous pushbuttons is backlit and equipped with a spot LED both of which are activated simultaneously.

The spot LED is dark when inactive. The pushbutton itself glows (basic brightness) when inactive and is brightly lit (signal brightness) when active.

The brightness of the spot LED and both brightness levels for the pushbutton itself can be regulated (dimmed) -- always simultaneously -- as desired:

¯ Basic brightness between 1 % and 10 % of maximum brightness

¯ Signal brightness between 10 % and 100 % of maximum brightness

The following terms are sometimes used in this manual to describe pushbutton illumina- tion (e.g. to save space in the operating tables):

Terms used to describe pushbutton illumination states on the control lever panel

The flashing frequency depends on the respective situation; either approx. 0.5 Hz (slow flashing) or approx. 2 Hz (rapid flashing).

Meaning of signal brightness for the individual pushbuttons

The alarm pushbutton lights up on all control lever panels of the propulsion arrangement concerned when at least one fault message has been received and acknowledged in the RCS-5 FPP 01-03/B concerned.

The SCL pushbutton lights up in SCL mode on all control lever panels of all propulsion shafts participating in SCL mode.

The command pushbutton only lights up on the control lever panel which is in command of the propulsion shaft concerned or all propulsion shafts in SCL mode.

Fig. 10 : LC graphic display: Overview page as an example of page structure

An assignment bar (10/3) is displayed at the bottom of every page. It indicates the current assignment of the function keys (4/4). The display above the assignment bar has a maxi- mum of six lines for informative text (10/2). Some pages display graphic symbols (10/1) to the left of the text, see tab. 4.

An LCD page may contain more than the six lines which can be displayed. In this case the part on the display can be scrolled up and down by pressing the function keys. On closing one of these LCD pages and calling it up again later, the visible part is the same as it was before closing.

Some pages have a cursor bar (selection bar; see e.g. fig. 12) which can be moved verti- cally by pressing the appropriate function keys. The line marked by the cursor bar is dis- played inversely.

Moving the cursor bar only has an effect on the display of the control lever panel concer- ned. The position of the cursor bar is saved on closing the page for the next time it is ope- ned where this is helpful.

The text lines in the field (10/2) operate as buttons (softkeys) in some cases: When the cursor bar is on the line and other requirements have been fulfilled, the corresponding RCS function can be initiated by pressing function key Enter (see tab. 5 ff.).

The graphic symbols (10/1) and the entire a ssignment bar (10/3) are standard. The texts (10/2) above the assignment bar can be configur ed to meet specific order requirements and can be switched between two languages if desired (see under Configuration page). The language setting applies to the display on the control lever panel concerned only and is saved even when the control lever panel operating voltage is switched off.
