Alarm, monitoring and controlsystem
Dekasis is a decentralised AMC (alarm, monitoring and control) system developed by De Keizer based upon our years of experience in automating electrotechnical systems on luxury yachts. Dekasis is a custom built, user-friendly interface that enhances onboard comfort. It has an automatic back-up system that allows you to operate your systems from various locations via DVI Touch Screens.
We developed the decentralised system to save cables and thus weight, and increase flexibility during and after construction. Creating redundancy was a key issue. The PCs, PLCs and network are all redundant. This means that the underlying system automatically takes over in case of failure in one system. It also reduces fuel consumption and peak loads, and creates more space on the bridge.
Thanks to the decentralised layout you can add equipment or functionalities to the system after it has been delivered. Touchscreens enable the redesign of control elements without actually having to add new switches in the already finished interior or control panels. The industrially sorted computers use two compact flash memory cards that, unlike hard discs, are shock-proof.
DekaSis components have been certified by the major maritime classification societies such as Lloyds, ABS, GL and DNV. DekaSis also has type approval and was designated as type approved equipment.
