When standard speed is ordered, the number of revolutions per minute required to produce that speed must be set on the engine revolution telegraph if the revolution  counter  is  being  used. When not in use, the telegraph on the bridge may be set   to   999   or   (on   some   telegraphs)   to   M   (for maneuvering).  This  setting  indicates  to  the  engineroom that  the  ship  is  on  maneuvering  bells. Although control of the engine order telegraph usually can be shifted from the bridge to an after conning station by a selector switch, control of the engine revolution  telegraph  cannot  be  shifted  in  this  manner  in most  installations. An engine revolution indicator (or tachometer) on the bridge shows the number of revolutions per minute actually being made by each shaft. This device is only an indicator and is incapable of transmitting orders. See figure  2-10. CONSOLES Many  ships  are  equipped  with  ship  control  and steering  control  consoles. Ship control and steering control consoles normally are installed in the pilothouse and serve as a direct method  of  controlling  the  ship.  These  consoles concentrate  in  one  location  many  of  the  interior communication units formerly scattered in several places about the bridge. The units are combined in two consoles,  which  usually  weigh  less  and  require  less space than if the same units were installed separately. Components of the consoles are mounted so that they are easily visible and accessible to the personnel concerned  with  the  control  of  the  ship. Ship  Control  Console The ship control console contains equipment for controlling the movements of a ship. Figures 2-11, 2-12, and 2-13 show three types of ship control consoles in Figure  2-11.—  Ship  control  console. 2-9
