Multiple interfaces are available for data output ( Radar RGB port, Mic-audio ports, VHF audio port, NMEA0183 16 ports, NSK port (option), 16 analog ports (option), 64 closing-contact ports (option). ) to the Protective capsule and a removable backup memory disk allows duplication of the data. Data recorded is stored in minimum12 hour segments, recording the following ship’s information: Data & time, position, Speed, Heading, Bridge communication, Radar data, VHF communication, Under keel clearance, Bridge Main Alarms, Rudder order/response, Engine order/response, Watertight/fire door status, Hull openings status, Accelerations and hull stresses, Wind speed/direction, etc. depending on the interfacing options connected to the data acquisition unit. In the event of the ship capsize and sinking, the data hold period is over 2 years when un-powered. Environmental conditions it can withstand are as follows: Fire; 1000 deg. C for 1 hour, 260 deg. C for 10 hours, Deep-sea pressure; 60Mpa (equivalent 6000m) for 24 hours.
