Paperless Navigation

Simrad has launched a new Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), the CS68 ECDIS intended for SOLAS vessels. This fully approved (Wheelmark) new system is called PLECDIS™ – or PaperLess ECDIS, to stress that the system enables vessels to sail without paper charts. Since no paper charts are required on board, this brings benefits in terms of reduced costs and improved efficiency. Additionally, automatic updates for new charts and corrections means that the latest chart version is always available.

Utilising Simrad software and hardware, the CS68 ECDIS has been developed in close co-operation with professional navigators. It provides fully compliant ECDIS functionality and ensures adequate redundancy. According to the company, several unique features position the CS68 ECDIS as the most sophisticated system of its kind. Voice alarms give early warning of an imminent navigation danger and due to their nature, are easily distinguished from the other alarms on the bridge. The system utilises 24 VDC power supply.
