We are proud to be Seas of Solutions partners and to be service partner for state-of-the-art products! On a yearly basis we perform APT ( Annual performance Testing) on some of these products.
One of the latest we are dealing with is NetWave NW6000 Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) System. The most advanced and cost effective VDR system yet.
Nowadays almost any ship has a VDR.
VDRs are very important as they are the best evidence in an accident investigation. The data on these VDR systems provides a detailed understanding of events leading up to an accident. It is essential that they are always in order and able to record the required data!
Aside from their usage in accident investigation, they can also be used for preventive maintenance, performance efficiency monitoring, heavy weather damage analysis, accident avoidance and training purposes to improve safety and reduce running costs.
The NetWave NW6000 Series VDRs is an innovative device with a sufficient and uninterruptible power supply. Its network switch is designed with built-in time and space in mind, and provides scalability up to the largest watercraft. It also has a high degree of plug-and-play interconnection.
IEC61162-450 (Lightweight Ethernet) Infrastructure
Contrary to most other systems on the market, Netwave’s NW-6000 VDR system architecture is unique in the fact that the various components throughout the ship are interconnected by means of one single Ethernet cable. Both Power and Data are provided over this very same single cable, eliminating the need for extensive and complex, and therefore costly, cabling requirements. Compared to other VDR systems, cabling costs are typically reduced by 50%!
Here follow six good reasons why Fleet managers and service Engineers may choose to install the upgraded Netwave NW6000 VDR System:
- New Analogue Microphone
- New VDR Audio Hub
- New VDR Player V2
- New VDR Configurator
- Software Upgrades
The new Player V2 playback software is based on web technologies that allow automatic configuration for common data sources, such as audio, video and NMEA, independent of the VDR configuration.
- Ease of Installation
The inclusion of a multi-purpose welding plate with the NW6000 reduces the difficulty of retrofitting fixed capsules from other brands of VDR, by removing the need to weld new fittings in place. Combined with new cabling in the core module to simplify the battery replacement process, the NW6000 upgrades are designed with installation engineers in mind, reducing complexity and improving the user experience.
