Danelec unveils new ECDIS

ADVERTISEMENT

Denmark-based Danelec Marine has introduced its new DM700 series Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) that fully complies with the new IEC and IHO performance standards that will be mandatory in all ECDIS ship installations beginning August 2017.

Like the DM800 ECDIS, the DM700 ECDIS is designed with Linux-based software, an intuitive easy-to-learn user interface, industry-leading cartography, low-power LED monitors and Danelec’s exclusive SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology.

“This is the smallest, most compact ECDIS package ever made,” Danelec Marine CEO Hans Ottosen said in a statement. “Unlike many other ECDIS manufacturers, we elected not to go with a panel PC-based design. That’s because panel PCs are prone to failures from excessive heat buildup and are extremely difficult to service onboard the ship. Our monitors meet military-grade standards and have very low power consumption, minimizing heat emission.”
