34 ST | March 2018 A 3D virtual application for the K-Sim Cargo simulator generates high-fidelity visualizations for op- erational training on areas of the cargo deck. Students can zoom in and interact with valves, flanges, cargo tank hatches, pressure vac- uum valves and crude oil washing machines. Kongsberg Digital. Increased CAN Bus Signal Range CAN bus communication protocol is extended to active flying leads with three configurations for up to 5,000 m, including a fault tolerant CAN bus (ECFL-FT), a high speed CAN bus (ECFL-HS), and an optical extended CAN bus jumper (EO- FL-C). Teledyne Oil & Gas. Maritime Black Box The VR7000S Simplified Voyage Data Recorder is a tamperproof data recording unit for maritime accident investigations. It records information from all serial, analog or digital sensors, bridge audio and VHF, radar and ECDIS data, AIS, bridge alert management, thrusters and inclinometer. Furuno USA Inc. DC Electrical Switches New models of toggle and push-but- ton switches are available in single- and double-pole and single- and double-throw options. Switches are available with a lighted lever and optional silicone rubber boot for moisture sealing. Hubbell Marine Electrical Products. Machine Diagnostics Using information about speed, horsepower and rigid versus flexi- ble mount, a smart machine check- er uses a wireless triaxial sensor to take measurements on the bearing points of a machine, as well as shaft speed, bearing temperature and wireless sensor orientation. Fixtur- laser. Navigational iPhone App The mazu iPhone app now inte- grates Navionics vector charts for navigation and weather routing. It offers seven-day point forecasts, with wind and wave heights, access to GRIB files, and NEXRAD and NOAA weather alerts. Navigation includes routes, waypoints, NMEA data, and on-screen tracking. Sky- Mate Inc. Artificial Intelligence System The A-Suite cloud-based operations manager uses algorithms to detect anomalies in the behavior of hu- man operators. It includes a track prediction system and anti-collision support tool, advanced diagnostics for decision support, and uses re- al-time metocean data, hazards and hydrodynamic performance indica- tors for optimization. Transas. product development For more information on any of these products, visit our website at Virtual Cargo Simulator The Micro-Ranger 2 ultra-short baseline acoustic tracking system is built around 6G hardware and Wideband 2 digital acoustic tech- nology. The small, light transceiver can be deployed from a small boat, pontoon or USV. Sonardyne Inter- national Ltd. Entanglement Prevention The ARC-1XD acoustic release mechanism is based on vaporiza- tion of a nickel-chromium wire by a very high-current electric cur- Underwater Tracking Technology
