Hernis 400 System Is Safe And Sound

Increased safety and operability continues to be the driving force behind the V.I.S. concept, which both Hernis and Kongsberg Maritime Ship Systems had in mind when they collaborated on their latest deliveries to Radiance of the Seas and The World of Residensea. The Hernis 400 CCTV System consists of a serial link that is intended mainly for automatic triggering of camera selections and release of camera pre-set positions in the event of alarms detected by the AM 5000 system. The AM 5000 mimic, which shows the General Arrangement of the vessel, has all alarm sensor, doors, etc. superimposed on it. In the event of an alarm, the operator will immediately receive an indication of which sensor triggered the alarm and which camera selections the alarm event has selected.

Further development of the interface may be to interconnect the systems on LAN and adding a simple window for camera control.
