Orlaco develops camera monitor systems for all types of inland vessels. When positioning a vessel in front of a lock and maneuvering into the lock, a camera monitor system is of great help.
The installation of a zoom camera on the bridge wings of the ship and a fixed camera on the mast gives the captain a good view of the situation. The fixed camera on the mast is also used to eliminate the blind spot in front of the vessel. This provides an overview of the waterway in front of the ship and any smaller vessels, such as pleasure boats, can be spotted, ensuring that the ship can proceed safely.
Bridge wing FWD view
The zoom cameras under the bridge wing enable the operator to maneuver the ship into locks and on narrow waterways. The camera is also used to view the bollards and to keep an eye on the crew working on deck.
Hatch crane view
Unsafe situations can occur during operation of the hatch crane. The hatch crane system improves safety during operation of this crane. Two Compact Cameras are installed on both sides of the crane. One camera provides a good view of the gangway and the other camera is aimed at the hook of the spreader. The operator can now see at all times whether the gangway is clear and if the hook is properly connected.
Engine room view
The engine room is often unmanned and there is no visual of this area. With the help of a camera, either with or without LED lighting, the operator can detect oil leakages or smoke formation early on, even before a warning is emitted by a detection system.
The Forward view camera is used to gain an overall view of the waterways and maneuver the ship into a lock. This camera also eliminates the blind spot in front of the ship's bow, making it possible to spot smaller boats in time and prevent accidents.
With the winchview camera, the operator can see if the cable is being wound onto the reel properly. It is also possible to detect any damage to the cable in good time.
