The stand-alone 22-inch panel PC system includes a high-resolution TFT display, and is compatible with all main chart databases such as ENC S57/S63, Admiralty AVCS and ARCS, and C-MAP CM93-3.
Features include an extendable navaid sensor interface module, route planning facilities, a separate layer for user objects (Notices to Mariners), overlays of ARPA and AIS targets, on-screen NAVTEX information, and tidal and current data. There is also an integrated conning page.
SAM says that, depending on class, flag or customer requirements, the system can be extended to include options for a printer, installation of an uninterrupted power supply (UPS), and an interface unit for external radar overlays.
The new ECDISPILOT is being officially unveiled at this year’s Posidonia exhibition by SAM Electronics’ representatives in Greece, Environmental Protection Engineering.
