Easy-to-use operating unit
The newly designed trackball supports all the operation of the equipment. Users will be alerted with alarms from the operating unit and color changes under situations that require attention.
The ECDIS will be operable like conventional models by connecting an optional operating unit that incorporates dedicated function buttons, control knobs and a full keyboard adopting the QWERTY layout.
Selectable screen sizes
A newly designed narrow-frame 26-inch (WUXGA) and 19-inch (SXGA) LCD monitors are prepared for the JAN-9201/7201. Each monitor adopts an LED backlight, thus providing high-quality images that are highly visible both during the day and at night. Also a touch panel monitor will be available as an option in each size shortly, allowing yet another straightforward way of operating the ECDIS.
Furthermore, an unprecedentedly large 46-inch (FHD) monitor is available optionally. This monitor is almost as large as conventional paper charts and convenient for an offshore ship, for example, if the display needs to be installed away from the maneuvering position. (For details, contact your JRC representative.)
Correspond to the major chart
The JAN-9201/7201 supports the display of major electronic navigational charts (ENCs), including those provided by ADMIRALTY Vector Chart Service (AVCS) (S-57 Ed 3.0/3.1 and S-63), NAVTOR ENC Service, and Jeppesen ENC Service as well as ADMIRALTY Raster Chart Service (ARCS). Also, it supports advanced features provided with ENCs, such as the Admiralty Information Overlay (AIO) of AVCS by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) and Dynamic Licensing of Jeppesen ENC service.
JRC provides a one-stop service for ECDIS through its total solution service “J-Marine Cloud”. JRC not only acts as a sales agent for chart data but also undertakes all ECDIS-related complicated procedures, including pay-as-you-sail (PAYS) services for the automatic purchasing of updated data on navigational routes. In addition, JRC provides J-Marine Routing that suggests optimum routes based on route planning and the latest weather forecast in combination. For details, visit http://www.jmarinecloud.com/.
ENC (S-57 and S-63 vector charts)
・AVCS (AIO supported)
・NAVTOR ENC Service (PAYS supported)
・Jeppesen ENC Service
(Dynamic Licensing supported)
Others (private charts)
・Jeppesen Ed.3 Professional
・Jeppesen Ed.3 Professional+
The equipment incorporates a variety of optional functions that will be available with software licenses added. Software licenses can be added before or after the ECDIS comes into operation. Therefore, the ECDIS can be customized to match the actual operating conditions.
・Expansion of AIS display targets (500 → 1000)
・Radar overlay function*1
・S-Joy control support*3
・Satellite communications blocking alarm (Function expanded in the future)
- The radar overlay function requires an optional radar interface circuit and radar image signal input.
- The track control system (TCS) function requires auto pilot connections in addition. For details, including corresponding models, contact your JRC representative.
- For autopilot models connectable to the S-Joy control panel, contact your JRC representative.
Type-specific training (TST)
Unlike JRC’s conventional ECDIS models, this ECDIS has adopted a new operation system and a TST program supporting the new operation system is required. The TST for the new ECDIS is given at JRC’s major branches, agents, and training institutions around the world. The training will be given onboard or offices by instructors dispatched at the request of customers.
Furthermore, PC software is available for users’ self-learning at home or onboard. For more information about TST, contact your JRC representative.
