About the New IMO VDR Performance Standards

In May 2012, the Maritime Safety Committee of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a revised recommendation on performance standards for Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs), e‑ ective as of July 1, 2014. The new requirements defi ned in MSC 333(90) state that for VDRs installed on or after July 1, 2014 on all passenger vessels or cargo vessels of 3,000 GT and above:

Recording media

  • Data shall be recorded internally in the VDR for a minimum of 30 days/720 hours
  • Data shall be recorded in a fl oat-free capsule, in addition to a fi xed capsule
  • Data shall be recorded for a minimum of 48 hours in both capsules

Bridge audio

  • Bridge audio shall be recorded using at least two tracks for indoor microphones
  • Outdoor microphones shall be recorded on an additional separate track

Additional sensors

  • Images, charts and settings from the ECDIS shall be recorded
  • Images from both radars on the vessel shall be recorded
  • Data from the AIS shall be recorded
  • Data from an inclinometer shall be recorded, if installed

Is Your System IMO-Compliant ?

All new VDRs installed after July 1, 2014 must be compliant with the new standards. Our newest generation DM100 VDR meets all requirements and performance standards of MSC.333(90) and IEC 61996-1 Ed.2. Danelec VDR systems are designed to record and store, in a secure and retrievable form, information concerning the ship’s position, movement, physical status and command and control for the period leading up to and following an incident. Designed specifi cally for maritime application down to the last component, Danelec VDRs o‑ er high quality and reliability in a compact and lightweight, easy-to-install solution.

A Revolution in Shipboard Service

Servicing and repairing shipboard electronics can be time consuming and expensive. There are the complicated logistics of scheduling a service call and fi nding a properly trained technician – sometimes from a remote port. Then there is the question of whether the technicians have the correct spare parts on hand and can complete the repairs in time to meet the ship’s sailing schedule.

Now there is a way to save time and money, while eliminating in-port delays, thanks to the new SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) solution from Danelec. With SWAP technologyTM, all system software and confi guration, as well as programming data, is automatically saved on a hot-swappable memory card that can easily be removed from the old unit and inserted into the new one. Relocating the repair from ship to shore saves hours of time in re-installing software and re-programming the unit.

The Traditional Way

In a typical service scenario, the technicians board the ship, troubleshoot the problem and determine what spares are needed to make the repair. If the parts are not available locally, they must be ordered. Depending on the system, port state control authorities may prevent the ship’s departure until the repairs are made, resulting in expensive demurrage and port costs. If the ship is allowed to sail, the spares must be delivered to its next port, requiring another expensive service call to complete the repairs.

The Danelec Way

The SWAP solution is quick and easy:

  • When a Danelec-trained technician reports to the ship for a service call, he arrives with a replacement unit in hand
  • The technician removes the memory card from the old unit
  • He switches out the old unit with the replacement unit
  • Inserts the memory card into the new unit
  • Then he takes the old unit to shore for repair
