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.
