BAM le guardian 3000
The certified Bridge Alert Management system with integrated BNWAS – BAM le guardian 3000 is able to handle in addition to the binary alert processing, the newest alert telegram standards as "advanced alert related communication" with ACN, ALC, ALF and ARC according to IEC 61924-2, ALR, TXT, ACK and HBT according to IEC 61162-1 (2) communicated via network protocol EN 61162-450 ("lightweight ethernet") or serial communication (RS-422). Furthermore the bridge alert management system is able to adapt the missing ability of alert categorization in conjunction with obsolete ALR-Telegrams. Therefore the BAM le guardian 3000 makes sure all attached systems whether outmoded or up to date are complying the current standards and regulations.
The system has been designed to give sustained support to the Officer of the Watch - especially in multiple alarm situation. This centralized alarm management tool is guiding the OOW by indicating all connected nautical systems in graduated categories. The BAM le guardian 3000 controls all audible alarms on the bridge by a bi-directional alarm, acknowledge and sound off interface. The system provides alarm specific instruction assisting the OOW to react appropriately. A continuous event log ensures data is permanently available for systematic analysis of critical incidents or other exceptionals.
An integrated Type Approved BNWAS transfers unattended alarms automatically to selected officer areas. A connecting module is monitoring all BNWAS alarm devices and reset facilities. Intelligent features, such as a self-test routine, are included as standard.
