1. Maintenance Software
The maintenance software of JCY-1800/1850 is a PC-based application. The original task of the software is to check the equipment and to create the As-delivered software configuration. On board a ship, this is a versatile tool for a service engineer, too. The software helps him to install the equipment, reconfigure the setting, carry out the operation check and locate the fault, if any. 1) Software name: JCY1800-maint.exe 2) Language used: English 3) Characters used for entry: English one-byte characters only The number of characters that can be inputted is limited by each entry field. Entry over the maximum allowable number is denied. 4) Installation of the maintenance software: Use setup.exe for installing this software to the maintenance PC. Refer to Chapter 16 for the installation of this software.
For Windows Vista It is necessary to release UAC (user account control) for Windows Vista. Please install it according to the procedure of "Installation" in Chapter 17. When UAC has not been canceled, it is not possible to operate normally.

4.3.4.2.2. Communication parameters and Sentence format Set the communication parameter and the sentence format. Once the type is selected, following parameters are automatically set as default. There is no need to change these values.

TYPE Baud Rate Data Bits Stop Bits Parity Checksum Header Delimiter Max Length Max Interval

NMEA 4800 8 1 None enable $ 0D0A 82 15

AIS 38400 8 1 None enable 0D0A 82 200

DRY-CNT 4800 8 1 None enable $ 0D0A 82 315

DCNT+A/D 4800 8 1 None enable $ 0D0A 82 15

NAV-IF 19200 8 1 None enable $ 0D0A 82 15

NSK 4800 8 1 None enable $ 0D0A 82 15

1)

Header Enter the header character. Enter $ for general sensor units. In case of connecting to the AIS, enter ! as a header character. When ! is entered, the RCU receives the NMEA sentences that have $ and ! as header. Delimiter Enter delimiter (the sign that means the end of the sentence). OD OA is recognized by the software as <CR><LF>.

2)

3) Maximum length of sentence Set the maximum length of the data sentence. Any data sentence of which length exceeds this maximum sentence length is denied and an error is arisen. The maximum length of the NMEA sentence is 82Bytes. 4) Maximum time interval of receiving Set the maximum time interval of receiving. If the time taken to receive a data sentence exceeds this limit, the sentence is denied and an error arises. For example, suppose ZDA, DTM, and GGA are set to be received. If the time taken to receive all ZDA, DTM and GGA exceeds the maximum time interval, all the information is denied and an error is raised.

JCY-1800/1850 4.3.4.2.3. Recording data Whether or not a sentence is recorded in the VDR/S-VDR is determined by the sentence ID. Any sentence of which ID is different from the specified is discarded and is not recorded in the VDR/S-VDR. 1) Recording item Select record item from the pull-down menu. Select Other, when the item was not found in the menu. 2) Sentence ID Select a sentence ID from the pull-down menu. Enter the sentence ID, if the sentence was not found in the menu. Type in maximum 7 characters, including the talker ID VDR/S-VDR Maintenance Software Instruction Manual

In case of NMEA sentence: The talker ID (2 characters) can be entered along with the sentence ID (3 characters). An uncertain character also can be entered using ?. Enter as many characters as you like (up to 7 characters). At least, include the sentence ID (3 characters). Examples: setting sentence ID for filtering ZDA sentences of GPS. ( all OK ) GPZDA GPZDA?? ??ZDA ??ZDA??

In case of option unit sentence: A/D : VRXDR DSC (NCT-72/63): ? (Since all sentences are recorded, "?" is used as a wildcard.)

3) Watch The watch on maximum interval of receiving can be set on each sentence. Set the Watch function of each NMEA sentence to enable or disable. The VDR/S-VDR will generate an error when the NMEA sentences set as Enable are not received within the set interval time. The VDR/S-VDR will not generate the error alarm when the NMEA sentences set as Disable are not received within the interval time. Enable: [ ] (checked) Disable: [ ] (unchecked) When the NMEA sentence ID is registered, checks will be entered as a default. In case of setting to disable On the equipment that does not transmit NMEA sentences periodically, the setting shall be Disable. Enable does make sense on the equipment that transmits sentence(s) periodically.

7.5. Dry Contact monitor


Monitors the dry contact data which is collected in the NCT-72/63, and checks whether or not the dry contact state specified by the installation drawings is correct. Be sure to check the collected data of all channels. This monitor analyzes the contents of NMEA sentence data outputted from the NCT-72/63, and the dry contact state is indicated by an icon.

7.5.1. Monitor start


No need to operate since the monitor functions of itself. The monitoring channel indicator becomes Green.

7.5.2. Monitor display


In order to check the dry contact state by a monitor window, make and break the dry contact. The NMEA sentence is outputted from the NCT-72/63 according to the make or break.

Sentence sent from the NCT-72/63 When the state of a dry contact changes. Every 5 minutes and at the time power supply is turned on (all sentences).
