Functional expansion

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 radar comes into operation. Therefore, the radar can be customized to match the actual operating conditions.

Optional functions
・Expansion of AIS display targets (500 → 1000)
・Radar overlay function*1
・TCS support*2
・S-Joy control support*3

*1:The radar overlay function requires an optional radar interface circuit and radar image signal input.

*2:The track control system (TCS) function requires auto pilot connections in addition. For details, including corresponding models, contact your JRC representative.

*3:For autopilot models connectable to the S-Joy control panel, 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 C-MAP ADMIRALTY 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.

Satellite transmission blocking area display*5

The equipment offers a function for confirming areas where JRC INMARSAT FBB and INMARSAT GX*6 equipment cannot communicate with satellites. The equipment can display satellite antenna reception levels, blocking conditions, and transmission suspension*7. When connections with antennas are lost, this function can be used to check whether it is a temporary transmission outage or it is caused by a device malfunction. When performing route planning, this function makes it possible to confirm in advance if there are any parts of the route where satellite communication is not possible and to avoid losing contact.

*5:Satellite transmission blocking area display is option,
contact your JRC representative.

*6:The INMARSAT FBB and INMARSAT GX support the
JUE-251/501 and the JUE-60GX.

*7:Transmission suspension supports only the JUE-60GX.

VHF remote operation by ECDIS

The ECDIS offers a VHF remote operation function*8. This can be used to configure channels on the VHF unit or to perform DSC calls using AIS targets on the radar PPI screen. Features such as the wireless speaker mic*9 make it possible to communicate with other ships even when away from the VHF equipment.

*8:The VHF supports the JHS-800S.

*9:Wireless speaker mic is option for the JHS-800S.

Sensor data sharing

Sensor data sharing

The central control unit is provided with the minimum required external interfaces specified by Marine Equipment Directives (MEDs), and other sensor data is received through the bridge network (LAN) from the interface circuits. The interface circuits are designed to be shared by a number of new-type navigation devices, and each type of interface circuit can be combined and selected according to each signal format and the number of connections.

Interface circuits

  • S : SLC (Serial LAN interface circuit): IEC 61162-2 × 2; IEC 61162-1 × 8; Contact input point × 4; Contact output point x 8
  • A : AOC (Analog option circuit)*10: -10 to 10VDC or 4 to 20mA × 4
  • G : GIF (Gyro interface circuit): Gyro signals (Sync and Step); Ship speed pulse signals (100 to 800 pp)
  • R : RIF (Radar interface circuit): Interswitch connection × 1; Slave video input × 1

*10:The installation of the AOC requires a serial LAN interface circuit (SLC).

Type-specific training (TST)

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.
