Retrofit ECDIS from Raytheon

Raytheon Anschütz has announced the launch of ECDIS 24, a new ECDIS which has been specifically designed for retrofit installations.

The new system will be officially unveiled at SMM 2012 in Hamburg, Germany.

Based on existing Raytheon Anschütz ECDIS software, the ECDIS 24 comes with an off-the-shelf 24 inch TFT Panel-PC display, so it does not require a separate PC. The standard package includes an interface-box, with cabling, and a stainless steel trackball.

All serial interfaces required by ECDIS performance standards are present, such as IEC61174 for echo sounder, speed log, GPS / DGPS, AIS, gyro, and ARPA target integration.

Connection for AC (main) and DC (emergency) power supplies is included, with automatic switch-over to remove the need for an uninterrupted power supply (UPS). If double ECDIS is required, exchange of data, routes and charts is possible via a LAN interface.

As a standard ECDIS, the new system displays data from navigation sensors on board, integrates AIS targets, offers conventional route planning functions and provides a 24h log of data.

In addition to these basic functions, ECDIS 24 offers features for route and voyage management, with automatic route planning, a voyage calculator, integrated environmental databases of tides and currents and optional weather chart integration.

Functions are available through shortcuts, and a configurable Conning panel can display relevant navigation and track information.
