Denmark-based Danelec Marine has launched a program to provide free upgrades of shipboard Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) to the latest technology meeting new ECDIS standards.
The Danish marine electronics company is currently replacing the first-generation Danelec DM800 ECDIS products with new DM800 ECDIS G2 hardware and V2 software. The Danelec DM800 ECDIS G2 platform has been designed to enable the ship’s crew to upgrade to the V3 software, which will be fully compliant with the new IEC61174 Ed. 4, IHO 52 and IHO 64 standards. Danelec Marine also offers a free-of-charge update training for navigators already holding a type-specific certificate on previous versions of DM800 ECDIS.
Introduced in 2015, the Danelec DM800 ECDIS G2 incorporates a new Linux-based platform, new application software, an intuitive easy-to-learn user interface, industry-leading cartography solutions, ruggedized low-power LED display monitors and Danelec’s SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology for fast and easy shipboard service.
“We’re offering these free hardware and software upgrades to give our customers a painless transition to meet the new performance standards,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine.
Headquartered in Denmark, Danelec Marine is a leading supplier of Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS). Danelec Marine was one of the first companies to bring to market VDRs and Simplified VDRs (S-VDRs) to meet the original IMO carriage requirements.
