Furuno VR3000 VDR is a complete Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) system and fully complies with IMO performance specifications and carriage requirements*; intended for all passenger and new build cargo ships of 3,000+gt. The purpose of the VDR is to assist investigators in identifying causes of maritime casualty, and to use the data for future incident prevention.
The Furuno VR-3000 VDR stores recorded data in a Protective Storage Module (DRU), and a secondary backup Hard Disk Drive for easy post incident retrieval. A save button on the Remote Alarm Panel can be initiated by crew to immediately preserve up to 4 incidents for review, while the system continues to record normally.
Recorded data is replayed using LivePlayer V4 in a Graphical Presentation for investigation, briefing, and training purposes. Information gathered include vessels position, speed, heading, bridge audio, communication audio and radar images that are configured for recording in serial, digital and analog formats.
Also available is the Simplified VDR, Furuno VR3000S (S)VDR.
