Danelec updates remote vessel access platform

Danelec Marine has introduced the second-generation of its DanelecConnect telematics platform for remote access to onboard systems, with the first ship installations currently underway.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The company is working with third-party software application providers to use the DanelecConnect application programming interface (API) tool to capture data from shipboard systems and sensors into their software packages.

One of the first is Hamburg-based Hanseaticsoft, which is integrating the DanelecConnect API into its Cloud Fleet Manager applications to capture shipboard data from the DanelecConnect on-shore server, automatically capturing data into Hanseaticsoft’s analytics platform.

“As a software company, accessing good-quality timely data from ships has been a challenge,” said Hanseaticsoft CEO, Alexander Buchmann.

“It is difficult and expensive to install and maintain a custom data collection network with hundreds of data points on each ship. Danelec overcomes that barrier with a universal interface that provides a seamless data flow into our advanced analytic tools, allowing us to do what we do best, providing decision-support tools for our customers.”

The DanelecConnect Vessel Remote Server (VRS) module is an electronic interface box that connects with the ship’s Voyage Data Recorder (VDR), as well as other data sources. The VRS collects and processes the desired datasets for transmission through the ship’s satellite communications system to a Danelec server, where it can be shared with authorised users.

Datasets can be pre-selected for transmission at programmed intervals, while event-driven or condition-based rules can also be created to control the selection and frequency of data transfer. Immediate notification of alarms or out-of-tolerance conditions in onboard systems can be configured, and authorised shore side personnel can also request specific data files for on-demand downloads.{/mprestriction}
