Danelec Marine launched the new DM300 at the recent Europort Exhibition in Rotterdam.

The new DM300 S-VDR has been designed to be a cost-effective and space-saving solution fulfilling IMO requirements for retrofit installations on vessels above 3000grt operating in international waters.

Allan Lydersen, Sales and Marketing Director said "the interest we received at Europort for the DM300 S-VDR was overwhelming - especially the fact that the system is a lightweight 2-unit solution and extremely installation friendly was a key issue."

The DM300 S-VDR key features:

.2-unit solution - provides easy, space-saving and cost. effective installation. (Weight of total system is only approximately 50kg).

Main unit can be wall mounted - provides an increased number of possible installation locations.

Utilizes standard Ethernet/ CAT5 cable between Main unit and Data capsule.

Expandable and flexible system, where an additional number of interfaces easily can be added.

Easy configuration via Ethernet/HTTP (Browser).

"Hot Swap" - modules can be replaced while system is in operation. No need to shut down system.

Another feature that was very well received was the External Radar Interface.

This configuration allows the Radar Interface to be installed either in the radar console or nearby. This will allow the distance between the S-VDR main unit and the Radar Interface to be up to 100 metres, using only a standard Ethernet cable.

Anders Rasmussen, Managing Director said "We are convinced that the DM300 S-VDR will be a success. It is based on state-of-the-art technology, and the systems unique and modular architecture will no doubt benefit the shipowner - both from an installation point of view, but also from an after-sales perspective".
