Siemens Offers Brochure On Automatic Remote Control System DIFA 41

Siemens AG of West Germany is offering an eight-page full-color brochure on automatic remote control system DIFA 41 for main diesel engines with fixed propeller.

The text of the brochure explains that the DIFA 41 automatic control system enables direct remote control of the main diesel engine from the bridge and is thus an important precondition for unmanned machinery operation. Commands are given in both the manual and automatic modes using the engine telegraph lever on the bridge. The automatic control system and the engine telegraph are, however, electrically separate.

Control panels on the bridge and in the ECR are used to change over control, for chief limitation and for displaying operating conditions.

the publication illustrates the DIFA 41 with color photos, and gives a system configuration of the DIFA 41 remote control system in conjunction with other systems.

Special features of the system are listed along with a discussion of the advantages during operation.

The DIFA 41 is supplied in a cubicle or in a wall-mounted unit.

It comprises plug-in electronic PCBs of the standard Siemens microcomputer system 210 D and the IC systems SIMATIC® C3 and SIMAD YN® C. The modules ensure a high degree of noise immunity, according to the company.

A thorough discussion of DIFA 41 functions is included in the brochure along with technical data.
