Plecdist: Paperless Navigation with new ECDIS

Wednesday, June 15, 2005
The CS68 ECDIS from Simrad is based on the newly developed, marine dedicated MC50 computer, designed to provide SOLAS vessels with fully approved (Wheelmark) ECDIS. Simrad has coined the phrase PLECDIST - or Paper Less ECDIS for CS68 – to demonstrate that the system really does enable the ability to travel without paper charts. The fully approved and redundant nature of the CS68 ECDIS means that no paper charts are required on board. Additionally, automatic updates for new charts and corrections means that the latest chart version is always available. Tim Ryder, Senior Product Manager, Simrad, said, "We launched new chart systems, the CS Series, across the board last summer and the CS68 ECDIS is the culmination of our CS technology, providing fully approved ECDIS. PLECDIST describes the fact that with the CS68 ECDIS onboard it is possible to sail without any paper charts whatsoever." The system is feature packed, with voice alarms giving early warning of imminent navigation danger. The system also uses RAID for approved backup solutions, and a 24 VDC power supply enables more cost effective installation combined with better reliability over other power systems.
