QSI Touch Screen Terminal Used in Monitor and Alarm Systems for Large Yachts and Commercial Vessels.
Salt Lake City, Utah. 14 February 2006. QSI Corporation, manufacturer of rugged operator interface and mobile data terminals, was selected by Ships Company, Ltd., developers of custom-designed shipboard monitor and alarm systems, to provide the graphic human machine interface (HMI) on their Watch Master integrated monitor and alarm system. This technology has recently been implemented by Western Towboat Company, Pacific Mariner, Inc., Puget Sound Pilots Association, J.M. Martinac Shipbuilding Corporation and other companies with vessels of various sizes and system requirements.
Ships Company's Watch Master Central Processor, using QSI's QTERM-G75 display, tracks many shipboard systems and gives the crew a single point to track the current vessel status. The unit can handle up to 62 total inputs. Each input can be software configured. Monitoring can occur in differing conditions, including monitoring any battery voltage for high or low condition, main engine RPM for related higher and lower oil pressure conditions, etc. Multiple display units can be configured for use with the central processor. This allows for installations of displays in the engineering section, wheelhouse, and engineer's cabin of the vessel.
QSI's QTERM-G75 is a rugged, Ethernet-enabled, graphic operator interface terminal using a touch screen to interface with the user. This rugged terminal features a robust list of industrial-grade hardware features and options including a 640?480 lighted, TFT color graphic LCD display; 100Base-T Ethernet with TCP/IP support; touch screen with optional PS/2 keyboard connection; EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial interface; and 8 Mbytes Flash / 32 Mbytes RAM. The QTERM-G75 graphic terminal is ruggedized for use in harsh industrial environments and is NEMA-4 rated and CE certified.
The QTERM-G75 uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarityô (pronounced Clarity). Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects, provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity Foundryô, a PC-based design tool, provides a WindowsÆ environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the QTERM-G75 terminal.

"We are pleased to be working with Ships Company on their state-of-the-art technologies," said Karen Stanley, Sales Director for QSI Corporation. "It is exciting to know QSI's products are a part of a leading-edge development in shipboard monitoring and alarm systems."
"QSI's QTERM-G75 terminals have proven to be very reliable and robust. Software for screen programming is very versatile and user friendly," commented Herb Myers, President of Ships Company. "Support from the QSI team is always immediate and effective."
