Bridge  Equipment,  Continued - 14220_336
Bridge Equipment Introduction As  you  might  imagine,  there  are  many  pieces  of  equipment  on  any ship’s  bridge.  Each  ship  class  has  installed  equipment  to  enable  that ship  to  do  its  job.  It  would  be  almost  impossible  to  describe  each  and every  piece  of  equipment  that  would  be  found  on  the  bridge  of  a  ship. However,  equipment  that  is  normally  found  on  all  bridges  will  be covered.  As  a  QMOW,  you  are  responsible  for  knowing  how  to  operate all  equipment  located  on  the  bridge  of  the  ship  to  which  you  are assigned.  This  may  seem  to  be  a  large  tasking;  however,  as  you complete  PQS  for  different  watch  stations  on  the  bridge,  you  will  gain the  required  knowledge  to  operate  the  bridge  equipment  for  your  ship. Steering  Control The  ship’s  control  console  contains  apparatuses  for  controlling  the Consoles  (SCC) movements  of  a  ship.  Figures  11-1,  11-2,  and  11-3  show  three  types  of ship  control  consoles  in  use  aboard  ships  today.  As  you  can  see  from these  figures,  the  ship  control  console’s  physical  appearance  may  differ from  ship  type  to  ship  type.  On  ships  that  have  a  ship  control  console like  those  shown  in  figures  11-l  and  11-2,  the  helmsman  must  also complete  PQS  for  ship  control  console  operator.  On  the  bridge  of  older ships,  like  the  one  shown  in  figure  11-3,  the  helm,  engine  order telegraph,  rudder  angle  indicator,  and  steering  gyro  repeaters  are  all located  in  the  near  vicinity  of  the  helmsman,  but  at  different  locations  on the  bridge. On  newer  ships,  the  ship  control  console  houses  all  the  apparatuses  for steering  the  ship  and  for  controlling  its  speed  in  one  compact  unit. Additionally,  on  some  ship  consoles,  like  the  one  shown  in  figure  11-2, you  will  find  lighting,  steering,  and  general  alarm  controls  housed  in  the ship  control  console. Helm  Unit:  The  helm  unit  for  most  ships  consists  of  a  wheel,  rudder angle  indicator,  rudder  order  angle  indicator,  and  synchros  that  send electrical  impulses  to  the  steering  units  located  in  the  after  steering room. Lee  Helm:  The  lee  helm  unit  may  be  located  in  the  SCC  or  it  may stand  alone  near  the  SCC. In  any  case,  it  sends  information  to  the engine  room  to  indicate  the  ship’s  speed.  In  general,  a  speed  order  is sent  from  the  bridge  and  then  the  order  is  answered  by  the  engine  room. 11-3
