New ECDIS from Simrad

Navico-owned Simrad has announced the launch of its E5024 ECDIS system, a new type-approved ECDIS targeted at the commercial marine sector.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The E5024 has a 24-inch, full-HD 16:9 widescreen, as well as a wireless trackball controller and an on-screen keyboard. The user interface includes quick-access tiles and drag-and-drop functionality, designed to simplify route planning and waypoint manipulation.

Radar, AIS and ARPA can be overlaid on the display, with the ECDIS offering compatibility with Simrad’s own Argus radar system. It is designed for NAVTOR ENCs including UKHO (for AVCS), Primar, IC-ENC, and NOAA.  

According to Simrad, the E5024 also supports third-party charts, with S-57 and S-63 import and the option to choose between S-52 and INT1 chart presentation. AIO (Admiralty Information Overlay) is also supported, and installation can be configured for either single or dual-station operation.

Using an Ethernet connection, an independent secondary station can be installed alongside the E5024, displaying performance modules including radar, echosounders, sonar, and imaging, as well as third-party accessories such as FLIR cameras, CCTV, engine sensors, and other digital instrumentation.{/mprestriction}
