The engine order printer is a fully integrated part of the AutoChief® 600 propulsion control system. It records the status of the propulsion plant, and logs the commands given by the bridge officer and the corresponding machinery response.
It is designed to log the status of the propulsion plant, such as telegraph orders, machinery response, and some alarms. It is controlled from the control panel.
Examples of events to record
- Engine telegraph command and response
- Propulsion system modes
- Control station location
- Propeller shaft revolution (RPM)
- Other feedback
