NETWAVE NW-4000 series

  • On today’s market, this system provides the smallest footprint, the lowest installation cost and offers the ship-owner the option to not merely consider the (S)VDR system as a mandatory necessity, but provides management -tools and -data to improve transparency in the ship’s overall operational performance.

  • By making optimal use of the latest ‘state of the art’ Microprocessor and Digital Signal Processor technology, all of NetWave VDR systems provide the following benefits

    Simplified installation due to one single wire WaveConnect® cabling between the main units using ‘no-solder’ Quickcon© hermetically sealed connectors, which allows connections within 10 seconds, requiring no tooling, and achieve long lasting protection!

    Compact and freely configurable data acquisition ‘backplane’ units, the WaveNet Interface Modules® , require less than 30% of the size of earlier generation products, allow for low-cost ‘place-anywhere’ installation close to the data-source. Wiring is greatly reduced by the unique daisy-chaining capabilities of these system components.

  • An unmatched choice of readily available WaveNet Adaptor Modules® allow connection to virtually any shipboard data-source including Radar, ECDIS, GPS, AIS, Gyro (Synchro and Stepper). Digital and Analogue inputs eliminate the search and implementation of any third party ’bolt-on’ solutions.

    Anticipating new regulations coming into force in 2007, the WaveData® port allows easy access and data retrieval from the VDR system through the Ethernet port provided on the Bridge control unit to any standard notebook PC. The NetWave VDR’s already comply with these new ‘authority access' requirements via the built-in, readily accessible Ethernet interface.

    WaveLink® satellite hook-up facility allows for vessel tracking and analysis of all data acquired by the VDR, as well as automatically generated reports to be sent to shore facilities via email or FTP.

    Optionally Incident Data may be retrieved via the Compact Flash module (NW-4016 Bridge Control Unit only), for remote analysis.


  • The Netwave VDR has a versatile design. It can be installed in a 19” rack or can be supplied in a bulkhead mounted casing. It can either be placed inside the navigation console or against any flat surface. Because of its Power-Over-Ethernet design, cable running is reduced to the minimum.

  • Remote Monitoring
    With secured passwords, NW-6000 can be monitored and managed real time from your office. With Remote Monitoring service, the owner/manager will receive fault diagnosis, status reports, operational performance data and download:

    • Download of logs, NMEA data

    • Periodic reports

    • Without interference of the crew

    Fixed Capsule
    Netwave has developed its own Fixed Capsule, being completely in control over design and production of this vital unit. With our own capsule with integrated storage server with network drive, Netwave Systems has proven to be the expert on VDR and S-VDR.

    Camera Monitoring
    The NW-6000 has the possibility to record video from camera’s; which can be placed in key locations on the vessel. It will provide additional information on the situation on board in any circumstance the vessel is in. This will allow the ship management to have full access of data, in combination with live streaming camera recordings.

    Live Replay
    Optional, the NW-6000 has the possibility to integrate with various IBS solutions. With this integration, the bridge crew will have access to instant replay of various VDR recordings.
