Figure 10-11.--Rudder angle indicator (circuit N) and rudder angle order (circuit L).
STEERING EMERGENCY ALARM
SIGNAL CIRCUIT
The steering emergency alarm signal circuit
(circuit LB) provides a means by which the pilothouse
can alert the steering gear room watch that a
steering emergency has occurred and that the trick
wheel must be used to steer the ship.
A spring return lever switch is located on the
steering control console, and a siren is located in the
steering gear room. The helmsman operates the switch
to energize the siren when normal steering control is
lost. When the siren sounds in the steering gear room,
the steering gear room watch immediately engages the
trick wheel and takes control of steering the ship.
GEARS
Since gears are used in most of the equipment that
we are discussing in this chapter for changing the
