We aim to reduce the environmental impact of our products by manufacturing environmentally conscious products via the establishment of the "Type II Environmental Label," JRC's unique standard for the design of environmentally-conscious products.

Introduction of some products compatible with Type II Environmental Label

 
MF/HF Radio Equipment
JSS-2150

The MF/HF has a 6-channel Class A Digital Selective Calling (DSC), specified by GMDSS as standard, with a built-in DSC watch-keeping receiver. Digital selective calls can be generated and received for quick and efficient establishment of distress, urgency, safety and routine communication with other ships and coastal stations. In urgent situations, the JSS-2150 sends a distress alert once you press the distress button. The integrated DSC watch-keeping receiver monitors distress alarms by continuously scanning distress frequencies.

Features of environmentally-conscious product design
Energy efficiency: Reducing electricity consumption by 25%
Effective use of resources: Improving the recycling rate by adopting an aluminum body
Banned usage of hazardous substances: RoHS compliant products

INMARSAT Fleetbroadband FB500 Maritime Satellite Communications Terminal
JUE-500

The JUE-500 FleetBroadband FB500 is compatible with the FleetBroadband FB500 provided by INMARSAT. The terminal applies JRC's unique compact design; easily installable everywhere, and puts higher-speed Internet connectivity than with the conventional model from the ship right at your fingertips.

Features of the environmentally-conscious product design
Energy efficiency: Reducing electricity consumption by 70%
Effective use of resources: Reducing the number of parts by about 40%
Banned usage of hazardous substances: RoHS compliant product (Manufacturing number GV14549 or later)

Chart Radar
JMA-900B series

The real-time head-up function updates images immediately after the movement of its own ship, allowing the movements of other ships and surrounding situations to be read intuitively and correctly, even during ship operations involving fast turn or repeated turning round.

Features of the environmentally-conscious product design
Energy efficiency: Reducing electricity consumption by 26%
Effective use of resources: Reducing the number of screws used to tighten the unit to facilitate disassembly
Banned usage of hazardous substances: RoHS compliant product

ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System)
JAN-901B/JAN-701B

The radar image has a high resolution when interfaced with JRC radars. Unlike general radar superposition, the radar image does not hide the priority objects of vector charts, but overlays them on the radar image. At the same time, the brilliance and clutter controls of the radar images remain operable, as with dedicated radar equipment.

Features of the environmentally-conscious product design
Energy efficiency: Reducing electricity consumption by 10%
Effective use of resources: Using ZAM* material (Chrome-free treatment is applied)
Banned usage of hazardous substances: RoHS compliant product

* ZAM is a registered trademark of Nissin Steel Co., Ltd.
