Kongsberg Launches Simplified VDR

Thursday, November 04, 2004
Kongsberg Maritime launched a Simplified Voyage Data Recorder (S-VDR) designed to provide simple and cost effective retrofitting to meet IMO regulations. The Maritime Black Box S (MBBS) is based on the company’s Maritime Black Box (MBB), which has been installed on more than 200 vessels. The modular design of the MBBS is designed to make it simple to install on existing vessels. Each individual module complies with the environmental requirements specified in IEC 60945. The modules meet the requirements for radiated emission (EMC) so they can be installed anywhere on a vessel without causing interference to existing systems. The MBBS is delivered as a kit which includes the four main modules, installation materials and plug-in cables. External cables are available by specification for radar, gyro, speed log, GPS, microphones, VHF radio and AIS. The four main modules to the MBBS are the Main Computer Unit (MCU), the Signal Connection Unit (SCU), the Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and the Protective Storage Unit (PSU).
