Title
(EN) A METHOD FOR ARRANGEMENT FOR CALIBRATING A SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING THRUST AND STEERING IN A WATERCRAFT
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DESTINES A ETALONNER UN SYSTEME DE COMMANDE DE POUSSEE ET DE DIRECTION DANS UN NAVIRE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method for calibrating an a system for controlling thrust and steering of a drive arrangement (4, 5) in a watercraft (1 ), said system comprising an operating device (10) adapted for indicating a requested direction of travel of said watercraft (1 ), the operating device (10) being connected to a control unit (8) for providing corresponding thrust and steering commands to said drive arrangement (4, 5). The invention comprises the steps of: receiving an activation command (15) in the control unit (8), for beginning said calibration, detecting any movements (x, y, z) of said operating device (10), storing values corresponding to said movements (x, y, z) in the control unit (8) together with corresponding thrust and steering values (?n, a-1, a2), and repeating said detecting step and said storing step until a termination command is received in the control unit (8), thereby using said stored values in subsequent operation of the operating device (10) for indicating said direction of travel of the watercraft (1). The invention also comprises an arrangement for calibrating a system for controlling thrust and steering of a drive arrangement (4, 5) in a watercraft (1 )
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à étalonner un système de commande de poussée et de direction d'un dispositif de conduite (4, 5) dans un navire (1). Ce système comprend un dispositif de manoeuvre (10) conçu pour indiquer un sens de déplacement requis du navire (1), ce dispositif de manoeuvre (10) étant relié à une unité de commande (8) destinée à transmettre les commandes de poussée et de direction au dispositif de conduite (4, 5). Le procédé de l'invention consiste à recevoir une commande d'activation (15) dans l'unité de commande (8), à commencer l'étalonnage, à détecter les mouvements (x, y, z) du dispositif de manoeuvre (10), à stocker les valeurs correspondant à ces mouvements (x, y, z) dans l'unité de commande (8) conjointement avec les valeurs de poussée et de direction correspondantes (?n, a1, a2), et à répéter l'étape de détection et l'étape de stockage jusqu'à ce qu'une commande de terminaison soit reçue dans l'unité de commande (8), ce qui permet d'utiliser les valeurs stockées dans une opération subséquente du dispositif de manoeuvre (10) pour indiquer le sens de déplacement du navire (1). L'invention concerne également un dispositif destiné à étalonner un système de commande de poussée et de direction d'un dispositif de conduite (4, 5) dans un navire (1).
