We have used all our practical knowhow to make a new smart, highly reliable and simply to install system.
TMACS is special designed for refit installations

– Cargo Line/Manifold pressure
– Ballast tank measurement
– Service tanks
– Vapour pressure alarm and monitoring
– Draft, Trim and List indication
– Independent High/High-High level alarm system
– Exhaust gas monitoring with deviation view
– Flooding and bilge system
– Fuel consumption monitoring system
– Multipurpose stand-alone system
– Digital in/out
– Analogue 4 to 20mA / -10-10V
– Other communication protocols
The Team Maritime TMACS system use the latest version of the highly reliable PLC’s made by Saia.
The system has communication and redundancy possibilities making the ships operation safe.
Spare parts for the TMACS are standard parts available from any supplier around the world, always securing low spare part prices.
The system runs on a 24VDC/230VAC power supply which is connected to two internal backup batteries in case of a power failure. An alarm printer can be connected directly to the PLC with RS-232, and the printer operates without interference from the panels.
Web panels are used to give operators the information they need to perform different actions. The web panels communicate with the PLC by TCP/IP protocol through an Ethernet switch that connects panels and PLC to a LAN. It is also possible to use a computer for monitoring.
Programming of the TMACS is done by a user friendly configuration program.
TMACS Watch Calling System (optional)
The ECR panel is the main panel in the system. It has an alarm page, limit page, fault page and the watch calling system. The watch calling system contains functions for selecting engineer on duty or ECR watch, call all engineers and harbour mode. It also has indication for system failure.
The bridge watch panel has indicators for indicating engineer on duty or ECR watch, call all engineers, harbour mode, cabin ack, repeat alarm, system failure and group alarms. Additional the panel has an alarm list showing the last 3 alarms.
The engineer’s panels have indicators for Group alarms, engineer on-duty, harbour mode, system failure, call from engine and call from bridge.
The extended alarm is also programmed so that each panel can have an external buzzer in addition to the integrated buzzer in the panel. At night or off duty, each panel has a “Dim light” button for turning off the backlight on the panel.
Each panel can be designed for the actual vessel.
