Environmental monitoring system
As an integrated solution, the berthing aid system can be extended with the environmental monitoring system (EMS). The most basic option consists of a wind speed and direction sensor. However, often more sensors are added, in order to provide the pilots and operators with meteorological data or defining the operational limits as this increasing the overall safety. Most sensors are available for hazardous areas, should this be required.
For oceanographical data, the standard instrumentation consists of a wave and tide sensor and a current sensor. The instrumentation offered is robust and has been designed to minimize maintenance.
