Float-Free Interface to SVDR


Float-Free Interface to SVDR

Kelvin Hughes obtained approval from QinetiQ, the UK Government’s nominated body for Type Approval of marine equipment, for a float-free interface to their MantaDigital Simplified Voyage Data Recorder (SVDR). The provision of this interface allows downloading the data captured on SVDR into a float-free protective capsule as an alternative to the traditional fixed rugged capsule. This alternative represents another new and significant milestone in the development of Voyage Data Recording technology.

In parallel with this development, Jotron, manufacturer of emergency position indicating radio beacons (EPIRBs), has recently completed Type Approval testing of their SVDR float-free capsule. All present VDR installations are equipped with fixed protective capsules which although designed to withstand extreme temperatures and pressure require expensive and time consuming techniques for recovery. The new float-free option, whilst less rugged, offers potentially lower recovery costs and speedier access to recorded data.
To further assist in the understanding of the SVDR subject, Kelvin Hughes are conducting a number of seminars around the world. In addition Kelvin Hughes are sponsoring the information website http://www.s-vdr.com which provides full details of international standards, deadlines for implementation as well as listing dates of forthcoming seminars. The site also contains a section specifically detailing the merits of fixed and float –free protective capsules which has been written specifically to assist customers in making an informed choice.
