In addition to its computing power and rugged design, 2 PCI slots make hardware extensions simple, while the 12 built-in NMEA ports allow users to easily connect gyros, speed logs, wind sensors and other specialized maritime hardware without the headache of configuring additional NMEA converters, thereby saving money, time, and maintenance effort.
MC-5150-AC/DC ECDIS computers are compliant with the marine certifications DNV (pending), IEC 60945 (pending), IACS-E10 (pending), IEC 61162-1(pending) and IEC 61162-2 (pending).
Users can easily install Windows XP Embedded, XP Professional or Windows 7, to provide a flexible and friendly environment for system development and application implementation.
• 2 universal PCI slots allows modular expansions;
• Fanless design with a high performance Intel ® Core™ i5 520E processor;
• Integrated NMEA0183 interface allows hassle-free connections for 12 marine devices;
• Tailor-made for marine environments: compliant with the marine certifications IEC 60945, IACS E-10, and DNV;
• Rugged design: a 7 year MTBF, even in harsh environments.
