About the Simplified VDR Performance Standards
In December 2004 the Maritime Safety Committee of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) amended its original carriage
requirements for Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) to allow retrofitting a Simplified VDR (S-VDR) on existing cargo ships, due to
the difficulties in interfacing to existing analog sensors on older vessels. The requirements defined in MSC.163(78) state that for
S-VDRs installed on cargo vessels of 3,000 GT and above which were built before July 1, 2002:
• Data shall be recorded in removable memory of the S-VDR for a minimum of 12 hours
• Data shall be recorded in a fixed capsule or a float-free capsule for a minimum of 12 hours
Recording media
• Functionality of saving the recorded data following an incident shall be provided, which
can be initiated by the crew without any interruption to the recording process
User interface
• Data from the GPS, speed log, gyro compass, VHF and bridge audio shall be recorded
• Radar image and/or data from the AIS shall be recorded
• Data from other sensors shall be recorded, if output is available in IEC 61162 format

Is Your System IMO-Compliant?
All installed S-VDR systems must be compliant with the applicable S-VDR standards. Our newest generation DM100 S-VDR meets
all requirements and performance standards of MSC.163(78) and IEC 61996-2 Ed.2. Danelec S-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 specifically for maritime application down
to the last component, Danelec S-VDRs offer high quality and reliability in a compact and lightweight, easy-to-install solution.

VDR Explorer Playback Software
Danelec S-VDRs are supplied with the VDR Explorer playback software as standard. The software runs from any PC and can provide real-time
monitoring and replay recorded data.
The recorded data can be presented in a large
variety of both graphical and numerical ways,
and is extremely easy and user friendly to operate.

DanelecConnect Remote Management Solution
DanelecConnect is a web-based remote management service available with the Danelec DM100 S-VDR. As a value-added interface, DanelecConnect allows selective transmission of data from the VDR via satellite to the home office without
being limited by satellite capacity onboard vessels. Remote management provides a wide range of benefits concerning
control, safety and optimization without the need of physical attendance to the vessel, such as:
• Enhanced safety
• Remote monitoring and service
• Ship’s performance optimization

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 finding 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 configuration, 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
The Danelec 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 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
• The technician removes the memory card from the old
• He switches out the old unit with thereplacement unit
• Inserts the memory card into the new unit
• Then he takes the old unit to shore for repair
The Benefits are Invaluable
SWAP technologyTM
• Saves time by enabling onboard repairs to be accomplished in a matter of hours, not days
• Saves money by reducing man hours for service calls
• Protects valuable shipboard data on a hot-swappable
memory card
• Keeps ships on schedule, eliminating in-port delays for
