Kelvin Hughes launches new ECDIS

Posted 7 September 2017 · Add Comment

Kelvin Hughes has launched its latest Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) - type approved to meet the latest International Hydrographic Office (IHO) and International Maritime Organisation (IMO) standards - which it will demo at DSEI next week as part of the interactive tactical navigation system being presented for navies and coastguards.



Designed for both commercial ships and naval and coastguard patrol vessels, the new ECDIS offers an optional mil-spec processor with advanced LED display hardware in a fully integrated, easy to install and retrofit, console package. It is available as a standalone ECDIS or as part of a truly multifunction bridge display network with multiple operator positions.

With the advance of paperless bridges, the ability to view the chart from any bridge display position via a dual network, not only reduces the workload with distributed chart corrections, user-defined graphics and routes, but also eliminates the single point of failure as all positions in effect become potential ECDIS back-up displays.

The ECDIS uses the latest IHO standards and specifically the latest presentation library, version 4 within S-52. This contains instructions for the drawing engine within the ECDIS on how to display symbols, colours and line styles on the screen and brings greater consistency to the display of ENC data while reducing alarm fatigue.

The efficient software architecture dramatically reduces the waiting time for the user when loading ENC cells.

A state of the art LED widescreen display is available in 22" and 26" sizes and is an easy to install console display with an integrated 5th generation processor and 64bit operating system which can be easily integrated into any bridge or operations room.
