Simrad has launched its new Simrad E5024 ECDIS system, an IMO type approved navigation device aimed at the commercial shipping markets.
The Simrad E5024 ECDIS system is an IMO type-approved navigation system, designed for use aboard SOLAS vessels including large passenger ships, tankers, and cargo ships subject to the ECDIS Carriage Mandate. Ideal for vessels required to retrofit ECDIS to meet amended SOLAS requirements, the modular E5024 ECDIS system offers simple installation in either single-station or dual-station (PLECDIS) configurations.
The new E5024 has a 24-inch, Full-HD 16:9 widescreen helping to show large clear charts, it also features a wireless trackball controller with on-screen keyboard. The E5024 software gives rapid access to critical features with quick access tiles and simplified route planning with drag-and-drop manipulation of waypoints.
Additional benefits of the E5024 is the Radar, AIS & ARPA overlay (Simrad Argus Radar compatible). It is designed for NAVTOR ENCs including UKHO (for AVCS), Primar, IC-ENC,and NOAA. The E5025 has third-party chart support with S-57 and S-63 import and the option to choose between S-52 and INT1 chart presentation. It also supports AIO (Admiralty Information Overlay) and has a simple dual-station PLECDIS option.
The E5024 ECDIS system includes support for an optional secondary display station, delivering complete control of Ethernet-connected Simrad performance modules including radar, conventional echosounders, ForwardScan sonar, and StructureScan Imaging, in addition to third-party accessories such as FLIR cameras, CCTV, engine sensors, and other digital instrumentation.
Any 16, 19, or 24-inch Simrad marine monitor may be used for this second station, which offers completely independent operation from the E5024 systems type-approved ECDIS functionality.
