Remote VDR access from Danelec

Danelec Marine has announced the introduction of VDR OnDemand, a PC software tool that facilitates remote selective data downloads from shipboard Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The portal allows shore offices to log on and request data from the VDR by remotely connecting via an IP link to the Danelec VDRConnect module on the ship.

For mandatory VDR annual performance tests (APTs), service technicians or ship managers can use the tool to collect data samples and perform diagnostics of the connected shipboard systems while the vessel is at sea, speeding up the actual APT when the ship arrives in port, Danelec says.

Should a service issue arise, the VDR OnDemand portal can also be used to troubleshoot the problem before the service call, or for remote configuration of the VDR. 

In the event of an onboard accident or emergency, the ship manager can request a transfer of recorded VDR data for a given time period for instant replay ashore.

“This is the first of a series of capabilities we will bring to the market, leveraging our unique VDRConnect technology,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine.

“In addition to the ‘pull-through’ functionality of VDR OnDemand, we are also developing a range of ‘push-through’ solutions for automatic downloads of recorded data from the VDR and connected sensors and systems at pre-selected intervals.”{/mprestriction}
