Alphatron Marine is proud to announce the introduction of the AlphaHeight during the upcoming Europort exhibition. The altitude measurement system consists of a number of sensors on the ship that measures the distances to the bottom of the bridge and the height of the steering house and mast(s) on a ship, contributing to the increasing safety of inland navigation.
On the bow of the vessel the sensor will vertically measure the distance to the bottom of the bridge and on the aft of the vessel sensors will measure the height of the wheelhouse and the mast. Furthermore, there are pressure sensors onboard which measure if a vessel is loaded on a certain point on the vessel. It also measures how the ship lays in the water without measuring the depth of the ship itself. The watering up of water by wind and or countercurrent does not affect the measurement.
The trusted 5-inch display shows the measured value and gives an acoustic and visual alarm if there is too little room left for passing the bridge. The skipper then has the time for the ship to respond to ensure a safe passage. Depending on the shipping speed and position of the steering house, this time may be 15 or more seconds for conventional inland waterway vessels.

JRC/Alphatron Marine introduces the new AlphaHeatDetectionSystem
9 september 2019 - JRC/Alphatron Marine is proud to announce their new solution, the AlphaHeatDetectionSystem. Onboard you have to deal with various dangers and risks. For example, the possible threats as heat sources enter the vessel undetected. Between 2005 and 2016 alone, 35 fires were detected and registered on RoRo ships. In all identified cases, the fire was caused by a vehicle or cargo. But what if you can be ahead of this, and the heat can be detected in an early stage, even before smoke or fire are seen. Early detection is often cited as key to preventing loss of life, ship and extensive cargo damage. Therefore, we developed the AlphaHeatDetectionSystem.Lees verder
