JRC JAN-901B-SCR/FCR with Conning Software & Analog Interface, 23.1" IMO ECDIS
The JAN-901B is a newly developed multi-functional ECDIS. It is ergonomically
designed to enhance the working environment and man/machine interfaces,
providing continuous position and navigational safety information.
The JRC JAN-901B offers practical radar usage with ECDIS, more
than just overlaying a rough radar image. The radar image has a high resolution
when interfaced with JRC radars. The radar image does not hide the priority
objects of vector charts, but overlays them on the radar image. At the same
time, brilliance and clutter controls of the radar images continues to be
The AIS is an important key device used to indicate AIS target
symbol and information on the ECDIS. These targets are very useful, as it
provides the maneuvering conditions of other ships at a glance, allowing for
safe and effective navigation. The name of the vessels, and bearing, range,
speed, length, heading and much more AIS target specifics from other ships are
received and displayed. The AIS symbols are continuously displayed on-screen
without the influence of the radar characteristics. The AIS targets are never
shielded by ground, rain or cloud reflections, nor are they eliminated by
adjustments of anti-sea or anti-rain clutter.
Also, it is easy to active, deactivate and switch between AIS
target symbols. This simply can be done with an integrated AIS filter,
prioritising the targets within a dedicated area.
Multiple and wide screen viewing is possible with the new
JAN-901B. You can divide the chart screen into two sections, in which the same
or different charts can be displayed, in a mixture of ways. In this field of
view, it provides a ‘look-ahead’ capability, especially useful in coastal areas.
With the wide screen view function, an additional screen in the display area,
showing a segment of the chart, allows viewing at a glance.
CONNING AND EXTERNAL SENSORS
You can easily connect a wide range of navigation equipment to
acquire more information. The ECDIS will display exactly the info you need in a
clear, uncluttered format, reducing the risk of accidents. This results in a
more relaxing and secure operation. Even equipment from different manufacturers
can be incorporated.
The new keyboard design of the JAN-901B allows you to carry out
all operations simply by using the keyboard or on-screen by use of the
The responsive feel keys allow logical and precise operation and
also integrate function keys for one-touch access to VIDEO, RAIN, SEA and GAIN.
This makes is seamlessly to navigate through all commonly used tasks.
The JAN-901B 23-inch colour display is able to show bright, high
resolution imagery. With a press of a button, the screens’ brightness can
automatically be adjusted to the most optimal condition. You can also select
from multiple background modes e.g. day/dusk/ night, a practical feature which
facilitates a clear sight, this in view of the ever changing lightening
conditions on the bridge.
As set by IMO regulations, a Consistent Common Reference Point (CCRP)
is a location on own ship, to which all horizontal measurements, such as target
range, bearing, relative course/speed, closest point of approach, or time to
closest point of approach are referenced.
Where multiple antennas are installed, different position
offsets for each antenna in the radar system should be applied with respect to
If you switch between scanners (up to 8 possible - option), the
information displayed is generated allows for consistency and uniform output.
This new feature is easily accessible from the menu.
MORE BUILT-IN ERGO-FLEXIBILITY
The JAN-901B incorporates two Tornado™ processors, which are exclusively
developed and designed by JRC, bringing a new level of performance and
reliability to ECDIS operation. The new Tornado™ processors, which equal the
power of eight conventional processors, allow radar overlay processing within a
few milliseconds before displayed. This generates a smooth and fast image
update. The advanced system architecture, make the JAN-901B series probably the
most sophisticated ECDIS available today.
FLEXIBLE BLACK BOX CONFIGURATION
The ECDIS system is available in stand alone and desktop versions to suit
your type of vessel. In the desktop version, the processor unit is the heart of
the JAN-901B, allowing for flexible installation approach in confined spaces.
With its simplified menu structure, the new JAN-901B shares the same
insightful user interface as found in JRC’s new radar series. The consistent
visual appeal and intuitive usage is of great importance on the vessels bridge,
especially being a working and living environment for thousands of vessels’
officers on a day to day base.
ADVANCED ROUTE PLANNING
The advanced nature of JRC’s new ECDIS system allows route
planning in different ways. Either plan your route by using the table editor,
while displaying current waypoint or graphically draw your next waypoint on the
chart. Editing the route is just as simple as inserting. Dedicated menus are
readily available to assist the mariner in effective route planning. Not only
can you save the routes, but import favourite or commonly used files, even from
previously ECDIS models, using industry-standard CSV format.
During the voyage, you can add an alternative route, which can
be displayed simultaneously. You can move, insert, add and delete waypoints
instantly and easily exchange the alternative route with route in progress, at
your own convenience.
EDITING THE USER MAPS
The JAN-901B provides a rich suite of objects which you single-handedly can
enter, move, insert and add on user maps.
The objects consist of symbols, lines, areas and texts. From buoys to
buildings and harbour to seabed signals, JRC’s new ECDIS has a total of over 40
categories and 30 sub-categories, which include more than 250 graphics readily
available for endless possibilities.The user map is linked to the chart, and
even if there are multiple user maps, you can easily select or merge.
A few examples
TRACK AND TIME LABEL
The vessels’ primary position is saved with a minimum interval
of three seconds, and the tracking period on the chart is displayed up to 24
hours. Conveniently mark your past track, choosing out of seven colours, eight
tracking periods, ten time intervals and eight nautical mile presets.
Some items could strike you on the vessel, a slippery deck or
unexpected movement of the vessel are situations in which a person may possibly
fall of the vessel. The JAN-901B integrates a single-press Man OverBoard (MOB)
operation. Instantly, a dedicated symbol arises on the screen, providing a range
detailed info such as positioning, bearing, range and time till arriving at MOB.
This emergency system enables immediate and accurate search and rescue efforts.
