CONNING DISPLAY STRUCTURE


The Conning Display enables the trainee to control the ship, to promptly obtain necessary information on
the vessel’s motion and on the process of the exercise fulfillment.

The ship control facilities and navigational aids are arranged on several on-screen pages (panels). To
display the required panel on the screen, “press” the appropriate button in the bottom part of the screen.
“Pressing” of the button is understood as a single mouse click with the cursor positioned on the picture of
this button.

There is a multi-level system for calling the required panel. This means that a press on the button for calling
the required panel may display another row of buttons for calling second level panels, etc. To return to the
main level, press Up button.

The called panel is displayed in the left bottom part of the screen. The remaining part of the display,
common for all the panels, contains controls of the main engine, rudder and viewing direction, as well as
some information displays.

Listed below are available main level panels, the appropriate call buttons are specified:
l Help for using the Conning Display (Help button);

All the panels listed above can be switched to in any order with a trainee’s pointing device (mouse).

Note: Run and Stop buttons do not appear unless the display is run with AllowAssign = 1 parameter.

It is possible to adjust the illumination brightness of all the panels to suit the illumination level in the
visualization gaming area. To do this, use Light button. Dimmer button allows the brightness of instrument
indicators to be adjusted. These two buttons are arranged in the right-hand part of panel call buttons.

DESCRIPTION OF DISPLAY’S COMMON PART


Conning Display structure allows the trainee, no matter what panel, with which controls might be called, to
control the ship’s main engine, rudder and thrusters, to select the viewing direction on the visualization
screens, to turn on/off the binoculars mode and to promptly obtain necessary information on the vessel’s
motion and exercise fulfillment process. The implementation of these functions is ensured by the common
(for all the panels) part of the display.

Control of Ship’s Main Engine


The engine telegraph is shown to the right-hand part of the called panel.

It is modified depending on the vessel type. If the ship has a single engine, the engine telegraph will have a
single handle. If the ship has two engines, the engine telegraph will have two handles (as shown in the
drawing). To work with one of the engines, use the mouse (tracker ball) to move the appropriate engine
telegraph handle. To work with both engines (portside and starboard) simultaneously, move the mouse in
the space between the handles.

Over the telegraph, there is an engine readiness indicator (Engine Ready) which shows that it is ready for
operation. For a more accurate setting of the engine telegraph handles, use the buttons with arrows and
digital displays arranged over the engine telegraph.

The engine operation is shown by the digital displays of the propeller shaft (shafts) rate of revolutions –
RPM and the propeller (propellers) pitch angle – Pitch (not for all the ships) as well as the analog Start Air
gauge.

To the top of the buttons with arrows and digital displays, there is the indicator of the clinometer.
