Compliant with the latest performance criteria
In line with the revised Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) performance standards which came into force on 1 July 2014, JRC welcomes or as we say in Japan, yōkoso, to our fourth generation VDR model, the JCY-1900. Having been involved in VDR development from the very beginning in 2001, this latest revision in the performance standards has allowed JRC to re-think, develop and design its latest model with the standard attention to detail for performance, reliability and long term competitive cost of ownership.
The required ones by the new performance standards
- Equipped with two types of capsule of fixed and float free type
- Recording of 48 hours in both capsule of fixed and float free type
- Recording of 30 days / 720 hours of recording control unit built-in media
- Image recording of two radar, one ECDIS
- Recording of AIS information
- Audio recording of the minimum 2ch in main microphone and audio recording of independent minimum 1ch in the external wing microphone.
- Recording independent of the microphone sound of the VHF call voice
- Recording of the electronic logbook, electronic inclinometer, Thruster and BAMS information*1
*1:Only when it is mounted on a ship.
System operation, on a 7-inch display
Newly designed for the JCY-1900 is the 7-inch color LCD touch display which allows full system operation. Displaying various VDR alerts with detailed information, see what sensors are connected including status, view the latest recorded image data of radar and ECDIS and playback of audio tracks recorded from microphones.
closer to you than ever
The new JRC VDR has a dedicated server integrated as standard to support our JRC proprietary Remote Maintenance System (RMS) using IP-routing technology to monitor status of navigation and radio communication equipment onboard, via JRC’s FB or GX Inmarsat satellite communications systems, to establish a highly secure connection data link to the vessel. This allows a cost-effective determination of the operating status, software version numbers installed, etc., of the JRC equipment onboard whilst the vessel is at sea. Being able to diagnose a problem remotely, accurately, reliably and quickly, allows the ship owner to save one of the most precious commodities, time. JRC can make preparations at the next port for the necessary repair work, dramatically increasing the return to work status, using our comprehensive and well-trained global support network.
Built, around our MFD
The JCY-1900 is built around our revolutionary new Multi Function Display (MFD) which functions as radar and/or ECDIS. The unit supports a LAN video input with a maximum of 6 video signals, which allows a straightforward and seamless integration of our MFD, supporting multiple radars and paperless sailing with dual ECDIS.
Naturally, connecting our previous generation radar/ECDIS equipment or other third party radar/ECDIS are also possible, although may require additional hardware.
