FURUNO VDR VR-7000 DELIVERED AS FULL VDR OR Simplified-VDR (S-VDR)
The carriage requirement for VDR is either for a full VDR or a simplified VDR. While a full VDR installation requires both a fixed and a free-float data recording unit (DRU), the requirement for S-VDR is limited to one of these. In addition, there are more comprehensive requirements for data storage for a full VDR installation. A complete overview is provided in the IMO’s performance standard for VDR MSC. 333 (90) and for S-VDR MSC. 163 (78).

EASY ACCESS TO YOUR VDR DATA
CONVENIENT REPLAY OF RECORDED VDR DATA
Enforced since July 1st 2014, the performance standard for VDR set forth requirements for a playback option for VDR data. This has been possible for Furuno VDRs long before this date. Using an of-the-shelf pc or laptop with the VR-7000 Live Player software installed, recorded VDR data can be replayed in a convenient and user-friendly format.
The pc or laptop can be connected directly to the VDR data collection unit (DCU) or VDR data can be extracted to a USB flash memory. A hatch in the front panel of the DCU, opened with a key, provides easy access to the DCU’s USB port.
