Standard Marine Consoles

The L3 MAPPS Standard Marine Console has been designed to meet today’s needs for a compact, open architecture, human-machine interface workstation. The heart of the console is a PC or VME format computer situated in the console base. Using industry standard formats allows for easy adoption of new computer technologies during the ships life-cycle.

The console is of modular design allowing multi-console configurations to be readily assembled. A range of connection segments are available that allow unique configurations to be developed to suit customer needs. These segments may also be used to house traditional instrumentation or communications equipment. Our systems engineering staff works with the customer to achieve the optimum design integration for the application.

The console’s light weight and compact size make it ideal for upgrade and backfit applications where traditional operator consoles are being replaced. The single screen console is completely deck-mounted while the dual screen configuration requires the fitting of a top brace. The console can be completely installed and maintained from the front allowing the unit to be installed close to bulkheads, freeing up space in congested compartments.
