JCY-1800 VDR performance features

Unique features
JRCs fully IMO compliant JCY-1800 VDR incorporates the latest advancements in technology, utilising an industry standard capsule and provides durability and improved safety at sea.

In-house technology
JRC uses self fabricated, reliable, marinised hardware, purposely designed for the VDR. The non PC-based equipment ensures spare part availability for many years.

L3 capsule
L3 is one of the main suppliers of flight recorders to the aircraft industry. They have proven themselves in the VDR market and are the worldwide leader in VDR technology. L3 delivers one of the smallest and lightest VDR capsules in the market. This hardened, high-capability data recorder utilises the latest advancements in technology, providing the best value VDR in the maritime industry.

JRC includes intuitive playback-software that also incorporates real-time monitoring functionality on the user PC. The data acquired can be displayed in both graphical and numerical format. Standard CSV (Comma Separated Values) data conversion enables easy and efficient exchange of information to shore e.g. via email. In addition, the playback-software is an ideal tool for crew training. Its ease of use and the freedom to survey a range of scenarios enhances the users navigation skills.

External recording
JRC constantly innovate to ensure it can deliver you best performance. Standard LAN output enables you to connect up to 4 PCs (own supply) by use of a hub (own supply). All VDR data, including radar video can be stored on these PCs. 3GB storage capacity per day is required if you would like to save the data on your computer. This allows you to easily playback, select and send data.

JCY-1800 VDR system flexibility

Remote Maintenance System
As times change and new technologies are introduced at an ever increasing pace, maritime navigation and communication equipments have become more sophisticated, which unless monitored could cause a greater burden on the crew. The VDR remote maintenance server with IP routing will allow you to remotely monitor the latest navigation and communication equipment onboard. By using our VDR technology as the data hub for this onboard network, it will be possible to more quickly identify onboard equipment faults. In the event of an anomaly, a JRC accredited technician can, via suitable satellite communications link onboard the vessel inspect, analyse, resolve and/or take action for next port attendance. Also the system is highly protected, preventing unauthorised access by other parties.

Interfacing capacity
The below scheme shows the JCY-1800 mandatory recording data, as defined by the requirements of IMO performance standard. The Voyage Data Recorder is easily connectable to a range of global navigation and communication equipment and sensors onboard a vessel. JRCs easy configuration assures continuous performance of the VDR system. IEC61162-1/-2, RS-422 interface GPS, Speed log, Gyro compass etc. Audio interface VHF radiotelephone, Microphone Image data interface RADAR Real-time monitoring/PC network up to 4 different PCs by use of a hub
