K-Pos extensions and upgrades

Operator stations

Additional K-Pos dynamic positioning system operator stations can be connected to the data network. Each operator station functions independently. Command of the vessel is easily transferred between the different operator stations.

 

Operator terminals

Operator terminals (cJoy DP-OT) can be connected to the data network. Each terminal operates independently. Command of the vessel can easily be transferred between the operator stations and operator terminals.

 

Wing terminals

Wing terminals (cWing) can be connected to one of the operator stations/terminals. Command of the vessel can easily be transferred between the operator stations, operator terminals and wing terminals.

Controller redundancy

The K-Pos DPC-1 controllers can be upgraded to DPC-2 (dual redundancy) by adding:

  • A controller computer (RCU)
  • I/O Bus (RHUB)
  • Preconfigured mounting plate (with fuse, power, filter, patch box for LAN, cable ducts etc.)

It would also need software update and, if needed, adding units to the IO system to get proper segregation. The K-Pos DPC-2 controllers can be upgraded to DPC-3 (triple redundancy) by simply adding a third control computer (RCU).

Screen capture printer

A screen capture printer can be connected to the data network. This gives the operator the possibility to print the current display picture.

Data logging system

Extensive data logging functions are available for the K-Pos systems as a separate History Station with recording and reviewing facilities.

IMO Equipment Class 2 upgrading

The K-Pos DP-11 and DP-12 systems can be upgraded to IMO Equipment Class 2 (redundant system) by adding one or more operator stations, upgrading the DP controller to DPC-2 (or DPC-3) and add necessary reference systems and sensors.

IMO Equipment Class 3 upgrading

The K-Pos DP-21/22 and DP-31/32 systems can be upgraded to the requirements of IMO Equipment Class 3 by installing an DP-11/12 system in a separate compartment and connecting it to the data network as a backup system. At least one of each sensor type and one position-reference system must be connected to the backup system.
