The new IMO Standard for VDRs comes into force July 1. After that date, all VDR installations must fully comply with the new requirements. This includes newbuilds and retrofits.
Danelec Marine will showcase its new-generation VDR at Posidnoia on the SRH Marine Electronics Stand (#1.113). The Danelec DM100 is the first VDR designed specifically to meet the new IMO Standard.
The new Danelec DM100 also features a totally fresh approach to simplifying shipboard service for marine electronics. The company’s innovative SWAP (SoftWare Advanced Protection) hardware platform provides for all system programming and configuration data to be stored on a hot-swappable memory card. If the VDR unit fails, the service technician can remove the memory card from the faulty unit and plug it into a new unit, which is immediately ready for duty. The old unit can be taken ashore for repair at a Danelec-certified repair facility, and the ship sails on schedule without a costly port detention.
