Kelvin Hughes launches new ECDIS

Kelvin Hughes has announced the launch of its latest ECDIS unit, type approved to meet the recently updated IHO and IMO standards.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Designed for both commercial ships and naval and coastguard patrol vessels, the new ECDIS includes an optional mil-spec processor with LED display hardware in an integrated console package. It is available as a standalone ECDIS or as part of a multifunction bridge display network with multiple operator positions.

The LED widescreen display is available in 22" and 26" sizes with an integrated 5th generation processor and 64-bit operating system.

The ECDIS uses the latest IHO standards, specifically the most recent presentation library, version 4 within S-52. This contains instructions for the drawing engine within the ECDIS on how to display symbols, colours and line styles on the screen, with the aim of creating greater consistency in the display of ENC data while reducing alarm fatigue.

Kelvin Hughes says that it has also improved its ECDIS software architecture to reduce the waiting time for the user when loading ENC cells, with ENC installation now completed in half the previous time taken and chart redraw happening almost instantaneously when altering the zoom level.{/mprestriction}
