BilgeSafe - a Ship Alarm Monitoring System for Flood Detection in Watertight Spaces
Simple to install and reliable in operation for safety critical applications
Ensuring passenger and vessel safety, PSM’s BilgeSafe flood detection system features our reliable and robust bilge level switch the BLS 9200, a proven bilge alarm that is in service in many thousands of applications, in conjunction with graphical and display units from the TankView 2200 product line
With stainless steel construction and an integral test handle, the BilgeSafe switch is fully submersible to IP68. In accordance with the SOLAS II-1/22-1 requirement, which requires passenger ships carrying more than 36 persons be fitted with a flood detection system for watertight spaces below the bulkhead deck, BilgeSafe is configured to be failsafe. Loss of power or communications to any detector, or cable break/ switch failure will result in an immediate bilge alarm warning. The flood detection system is powered from the ship’s primary supply and 24V DC emergency back up as required by the regulation.
