Datasheet Helideck Monitoring System 2.0 www.observator.com Observator has supplied many helideck monitoring systems during the past decades. In order to meet the high-demanding authority regulations and after listening to customer feedback, Observator has now launched HMS 2.0. HMS 2.0 is a helideck monitoring system which is designed to measure and visualize all relevant weather conditions in order to ensure maximum safety during helicopter landing and take-off operations. Compared with its precursor, HMS 2.0 has a compact design and is based on the Observator OIC (MeteoLink)-principle, which means a lower cost of ownership and reduced cabling during installation. Installation of the HMS 2.0 system has been simplified as all relevant sensors can be connected directly to the central PC unit. HMS 2.0 is applicable on all kinds of helicopter landing platforms, such as on enroute (naval) vessels, platforms, buildings, heliports and windfarms). Features • Compact hardware design with a 'Plug&play' system • Real time helideck weather and motion information • Compliant with CAP-437, HCA, Norwegian (Norsok) BSL D 1-5, Canadian OPEG and Brasil Normam-27 helideck standards • Options for remote access via web interface • Alarm and weather forecast options • Selection for aircraft, day / night and helideck category. • Stoplight function • Easily expendable with ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information System)-module A complete HMS 2.0 system consists of: • OIC-2020 19” industrial central unit • OMC-DOL-HMS software • Relevant weather sensors • Additional ATIS module (when required) The Observator range is in continuous development and so specifications may be subject to change without prior notice.
