SAM Electronics, an L-3 company, has introduced a new low cost IMO-compliant, type-approved S-VDR designed for retrofitting to cargo vessels of all types and sizes, the SAM 4330. Simple to install and featuring a flash disk embedded operating system for optimum reliability, the compact modular assembly is user configurable via a terminal computer. Its Protected Data Unit (PDU) has a standard recording capacity of 2 GB which can be downloaded via an Ethernet link in 15 minutes; data can also be retained for more than 10 years without power supply. Including a port for AIS data, the pre-assembled 16-channel Main Unit (MU) provides for 9 microphone and 3 VHF input interfaces together with up to 4 video source inputs for Radar and Ecdis, or CCTV.

A complete SAM S-VDR 4330 assembly is available with an extensive range of options. These include a playback station, a data acquisition unit for conversion of analogue and digital signals for output to the main unit, and a remote control unit with multiple display facilities. Also available is a special float-free protected data unit with an extended memory capacity of 8 GB.
