Danelec improves ECDIS line

Danelec Marine has improved its ECDIS line with the inclusion of a universal radar overlay module that allows radar images to be superimposed on the electronic chart display, and a new conning display dashboard with the status of all navigational subsystems and sensors.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new functionality is now available with Danelec Marine’s DM700 and DM800 G2 ECDIS products.

The radar processing unit (RPU) can be interfaced with most current radar systems from major manufacturers, Danelec says. The unit receives the data stream from the radars and converts it into a format for overlaying on the ECDIS chart display, with a single RPU able to feed radar images to multiple ECDIS workstations on the ship.

The conning display dashboard provides a summary of the status and performance of all connected navigation systems and sensors, such as gyrocompass heading, speed, water depth, engine RPMs, wind speed and direction, rudder angle and rate of turn.

In related news, Danelec reports that its DM700 and DM800 G2 systems have also now received type approval certificates from the US Coast Guard.{/mprestriction}
