Simplified Voyage Data Recorder JCY-1850

Categories: ,
The JCY-1850 Simplified Voyage Data recorder (S-VDR) is a so-called black box which complies with IMO, MSC 163(78) performance standard according to IMO, SOLAS-V, Regulation 20 as well as VDR, recording navigational information, bridge conversation and VHF communication. The recorded data is used to analyze causes of an accident such as collision, grounding or sinking. The SOLAS obligates to carry S-VDR for all existing cargo ships over 3,000GT after 1 July, 2006 but not later than 1 July, 2010.


Carriage Requirement
International Voyage Existing Cargo Ships Mandatory Installation
Over 20,000 Gross Tong (GT) The first dry-docking after 1 July,
2006 but not later than 1 July 2009.
Over 3,000 GT, Less Than 20,000GT The first dry-docking after 1 July,
2007 but not later than 1 July 2010.



JRC’s second generation S-VDR incorporates the latest technology to aid a safe nautical future.

In-house technology
JRC uses self fabricated reliable, marinised hard-ware, purposely designed for the S- VDR. The non PC-based equipment ensures spare parts availability for many years.


Dedicated industrial OS
A reliable platform is created by using an optimized operating system. The dedicated software guarantees a stable environment.


World-wide support
JRC gives continuous support through its offices and network of over 270 fully trained agents around the world.


L3 capsule
L3 is one of the main suppliers of flight recorders to the aircraft industry.
They have proven themselves in the VDR market and are the worldwide leader. L3 delivers one of the smallest and lightest S-VDR capsules in the market.


Performance Feature

The protective capsule of JCY-1850 can record the data 12 hours at least.
The recorded data can check easily by the playback-software on the user PC according to IMO, SN Circular 246.jcy1850_article02

Space saving black-box design
Mount the black-box at a convenient location to make all necessary interfacing.
The separate operation panel can be located on the bridge for easy-access to
status and alarm information.


JRC includes playback-software that also incorporates real time monitoring functionality on the user PC.
The acquisitioned data can be displayed as both graphical and numerical.
Standard CSV data conversion enables easy and efficient exchange of information to shore, e.g. by e-mail.


External recording
Standard LAN output enables you to connect up to 4 different PC’s by use of a hub.
All S-VDR data, including radar video, can be stored on these PC’s. 3GB storage capacity per day is required if you would like to save the data on your computer.
These gives you the possibility to easily playback, select and send data.
