JCY-1900 VDR

The new VDR performance standard MSC.333(90) has had a major impact on the event recording requirements. Prior to the new VDR regulations coming into force, a minimum of 12 hours of recording was mandatory in either a fixed or float free capsule installed onboard the vessel. After 1 July 2014, both a fixed and float free capsule are required to be installed and data must be recorded for a minimum of 48 hours in both capsules with an additional 30 days/720 hours stored within the VDR.


Further changes set by IMO are that both X-band and S-band radar, ECDIS display image and AIS data must be recorded, as well as an improvement of audio recording with separated tracks. If installed, an inclinometer to measure vessel’s motion and/or electronic logbook, must be recorded.

No new S-VDR regulation, yet a new model

While there is no new Simplified Voyage Data Recorder (S-VDR) requirement, there will also be the new JCY-1950 variant available with just one capsule, fixed or float free. JRC is a company founded on the principles of long term reliability and customer support and there are many ship owners sailing with older S-VDR makes and models that might no longer be supported. JRC views this as a duty to these owners to continue to offer an acceptable alternative solution.


Proven black box design, hardware for mariners

The JCY-1900 is, like its predecessor, black box designed, uses our own designed and fabricated, reliable, marinized hardware, with an easy IP based format, purposely designed for our VDR. The heart of the VDR is the recording control unit, which controls and manages all sensor, audio and image interface inputs and outputs.
