Abstract IEC 61996-1:2013(E) specifies the minimum performance requirements, technical characteristics, methods of testing and required test results, for shipborne voyage data recorder (VDR) installations as required by Chapter V of the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), as amended. It takes account of IMO resolution A.694(17) and is associated with IEC 60945. When a requirement in this standard is different from IEC 60945, the requirement in this standard takes precedence. This standard incorporates the applicable parts of the performance standards included in IMO Resolution MSC.333(90). This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition.
a) The description of the protective capsule in 4.3.4 has been changed in line with the requirements of the new IMO performance standards given in Resolution MSC.333(90) which now require a final recording medium comprising three parts; fixed, float-free and long-term.
b) A new requirement for a performance test has been added in 4.3.6.
c) Further data items to be recorded have been added to 4.6 for ECDIS, AIS, rolling motion and electronic logbooks.
d) Clause 5 contains new technical requirements for configuration data, operational performance test and bridge alert management system. In addition, further technical requirements have been added to 5.6 for bridge audio and to 5.8 for radar and ECDIS images.
e) References to "alarm" requirements in the previous edition have been substituted by references to "cautions" in line with current IMO recommendations. The test methods in Clause 6 have been updated to reflect the new requirements.
f) New Annexes E, F and G concerning protocols for interfacing images using a Local Area Network have been added. The contents of the corrigendum of February 2014 have been included in this copy.
