SAILOR 6390/91 Navtex System

The new SAILOR 6390/91 Navtex System from Cobham SATCOM is now available to order. As a black box system, with separate touchscreen user-interface, the SAILOR 6390/91 Navtex System introduces a new approach that Cobham says enhances safety and efficiency, whilst being fully GMDSS compliant as a standalone device or part of a SAILOR 6000 GMDSS Series installation. SAILOR 6390/91 Navtex follows the recently released SAILOR 6280/81 AIS System, as the second product group in a new series of 100% network integrated SAILOR products.

The SAILOR 6391 Navtex System consists of the SAILOR 6390 Navtex Receiver (available separately), which receives Navtex messages on the international Navtex frequencies 490 kHz, 518 kHz and 4209.5 kHz, and the SAILOR 6004 Control Panel, a 7" touchscreen that provides excellent viewing clarity in all light conditions so all messages can be seen and understood. Modular design means that the receiver can be installed anywhere on board whilst the control panel can be placed anywhere on the bridge. They are linked by dual LAN (NMEA also included), so communication between the two is highly reliable, but installation is flexible. The networking aspect also gives engineers access to all devices from a single point, which makes maintenance and software upgrades easy and more cost-efficient.

Whilst the SAILOR 6390 Navtex Receiver can be used as a standalone receiver and networked with any Integrated Navigation System (INS), the SAILOR 6004 Control Panel is designed to be used with other (forthcoming) devices and the available SAILOR 628x AIS System. It is a true multifunction display, with a familiar touchscreen interface, where the user simply selects the app icon required for access and control of the device chosen. By enabling operation of different devices, the SAILOR 6004 Control Panel introduces cost-efficiencies whilst making operation easier, and therefore, safer.
