Marine Safety and Standards
In our age of rapid technological advancement, the marine and offshore industries are continually searching for new ways to take advantage of the latest technological advancements. When it comes to maritime activities and naval forces, fast, reliable, and durable technology are critical to the mission. Winmate offers products that feature marine-grade design and undergo rigorous testing beyond Defence standards to ensure safety and performance. Our innovative marine-grade Displays, Panel PCs, and EAC Box PCs provide reliable power, peripheral connectivity, and the ability to control multiple devices at once while meeting marine equipment standards - DNVGL-CG-0339, IEC60945, and IACS E10.
Key Factors to Consider
When selecting marine-grade devices, it is strongly recommended to check whether they meet the following essential criteria.
DNV certificate - The DNV certificate is considered a high-quality seal, certifying the suitability of a device for use in the marine sector. In the IEC requirements, there are still shortcuts that allow for absolute deviations; every shortcut taken will break down the quality, safety, and security of the end product.
All devices must be IEC 60945 - approved to satisfy the industry's stringent security and safety demands. All instruments and components used in the ship's bridge, even those that form a minor part of the critical framework, must be evaluated under the IEC 60945 criteria and regulations. DNV-GL (or some of the other certified and identified third-party communities of distinction) will perform a device audit.
Shock and Vibration - Marine Vessels are constantly exposed to impacts and vibrations of various forms. The devices must therefore resist such vibrations and operate normally.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) - Unwanted signals created by the circuits inside devices affect the performance of other devices in the same environment, so it is essential to choose appropriate EMI shielded devices.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) - Similarly, EMC is the ability of a device to operate as designed without interfering with the performance of other devices in the mutual operating environment.
Industrial-grade equipment provides additional stability - When choosing a MARINE GRADE product, it is essential to pick a manufacturer that offers high-quality and rugged products. While marine certifications ensure compatibility, it does not guarantee the quality and durability of the product. Therefore, it is advisable to choose industrial-grade products coated with relevant materials to withstand the harsh operating environment.
The marine certified Panel PCs are designed for maritime applications with combined IoT integration to assist in vessel navigation, monitoring & surveillance, and ship automation systems.
