Danelec to Show VDR Tech at SMM2014
Danelec Marine, supplier of Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs), will showcase its DM100 VDR at SMM2014, located at Hall B6, Booth #623.
It is the first VDR to be type approved and wheelmarked by BSH for compliance with the new IMO standard, which came into force July 1. The DM100 VDR features Danelec Marine’s SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology, which stores all programming data and configuration files on a hot-swappable memory card.
If the VDR unit fails, the service technicians remove the memory card from the malfunctioning unit and insert it into a replacement VDR. The faulty unit can be taken ashore and sent to a Danelec Marine Certified Service Center for repair, allowing the ship to sail on schedule.
Danelec Marine will also showcase its exclusive VDR remote access capability, which allows shipowners to download selective data from the VDR for safety, performance optimization and maintenance.
