Customizing Your I.S.I.S.
System to Meet the Specific Needs for Your Vessel
RGM has developed a comprehensive installation process that
guarantees that your new I.S.I.S. system will be custom configured
for your yacht or sailing vessel.
Before an authorized dealer begins installing I.S.I.S. system
hardware such as data acquisition units, fiber optic cables
and flatscreen data displays on your yacht or sailing vessel,
your system must be configured to monitor specific shipboard
systems on your vessel. RGM forwards a questionnaire, sent
as an Excel spreadsheet or comma delineated text file on disk
or CD-ROM, to you to complete and return along with any electronic
files or drawings on paper of deck schematics and systems
diagrams of your vessel. This information is what RGM's engineers
will refer when configuring your new I.S.I.S. unit for your
takes the information on the questionnaire and assigns electronic
sensors to each shipboard system. Then, each shipboard system
is assigned to approproiate Data Aquisition Units (DAU), which
gather data and sends it through fiber optic cables to the
Data Processing Unit (DPU). The DPU sends the data to the
primary Data Display Unit (DDU), usually a flat screen monitor
located in the vessel's pilot house, and to all Remote Display
Units (RDU), additional monitors located elsewhere onboard.
Once the software in your new I.S.I.S. system is custom configured
for your vessel, an authorized dealer will begin installing
the system hardware. The following diagram is a visual reference
for how the I.S.I.S. system hardware will be installed throughout
your yacht or sailing vessel.
