Easier Access to Electronic Charts

Thursday, February 04, 2010

ENCs from Primar can now be downloaded directly to an electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) after type-approval of the first such unit able to communicate with the internet.

Certified by Det Norske Veritas, the new ECDIS-4000 from Sweden’s Adveto Advanced Technology AB complies with all relevant regulations and standards while offering unique functionalities.

These include an ECDIS security internet gate (ESIG), which makes it possible to connect to the internet for both on-line ordering and downloading of Primar ENCs. This solution has been developed by Adveto in close collaboration with the Primar service, which currently offers more than 8 000 ENCs through an international distributor network.

“Our secure Primar ECDIS Online service allows the ECDIS-4000 to receive real-time ENC updates directly from our database,” explained Primar director Kjell Olsen. “Adveto is the first of our distributors to implement this service fully and to have the ESIG type-approved as part of its ECDIS-4000 certificate.”

“Once a route is planned, our ESIG hardware allows users to connect to the web and order the required Primar charts directly via the ECDIS,” said Adveto chief executive Kent Sylvén. “This means they only buy and pay for the charts they need, and will always have the latest versions. It also cuts administration onboard and at the shipping company office.”

Other special features of the ECDIS-4000 are a control unit for remote quick, safe and easy selection of navigational functions, and a night presentation capability.
