Ship's Alarm Control and Monitoring System (ACMS) for commercial vessels


Thread Starter


I have done BMS in the past. However, i am assigned a task to do a presentation on Ship's Alarm Control and Monitoring System (ACMS). The system should be a centralised system which integrates control and
monitoring of the various shipboard systems.

The presentation should include:

1) Standards and regulations related to ACMS requirements on ship
2) Basic configuration/architecture and specifications of ACMS.
3) Various functions/controls:
a) Alarm Monitoring Functions
b) Control System Operations
c) Power Management System Functions
4) Different types of sensors used

I tried to google with different names related to the title but i can't find anything meaningful pertaining to that. Can you guys suggest me some resources in internet or books for me to prepare for the presentation? Thanks a lot.
