Maritime Nautical Ship Engine Room Telegraph
Traditional Maritime Nautical Ship Engine Room Telegraph required a pilot wanting to change speed to "ring" the telegraph on the bridge, moving the handle to a different position on the dial. This would ring a bell in the engine room and move their pointer to the position on the dial selected by the bridge. The engineers hear the bell and move their handle to the same position to signal their acknowledgment of the order and adjust the engine speed accordingly. Such an order is called a "bell," for example, the order for a ship's maximum speed, flank speed, is called a "flank bell."
