MARITIME KVM SOLUTIONS
Secure & Reliable Video and Peripheral Signal Distriubtion

Maritime KVM Solutions

High performance KVM on the high sea - fully compliant to IEC-60945 specification

At the high seas, crew, machinery, and IT equipment are exposed to harsh conditions including extended temperature ranges, humidity and vibrations. Therefore it is imperative to have all systems designed to work together reliably and guarantee safety to man and machine at all time. This applies also to KVM equipment aboard vessels and offshore platforms. The DKM KVM Matrix switching system and the 4site flex KVM Multiviewer are fully compliant with the IEC 60945 major accreditation which allows the implementation alongside maritime navigation and radio communication equipment and systems. This makes them ideal solutions for several naval applications that entail monitoring and control of critical processes and data.

Applications


Application: Ship Bridges

Ship Bridges

Overcome distances from technical equipment rooms to bridges. Get full an instantaneuos control of video and peripheral signals and connect your PCs and equipment throughout the whole vessel.

Application: Control Rooms

Control Rooms

Reliable monitoring and control of systems. Bring all relevant data to a central control room and switch between multiple systems and users, e.g. in Vessel Traffic Services (VTS).

Application: Offshore Platforms

Offshore Platforms

Video and peripheral control of various systems that allow reliable monitoring and instantaneous control of processes on offshore platforms.

Designed to Meet the Harshest Maritime Conditions


Since most equipment used on vessels at sea must undergo a compliance process designed to ensure that it is able to survive the ocean's harsh environment like shock and vibration specifications, the IEC-60945 specification entails rigorous testing regarding this environment (heat, cold, vibration), security and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), meeting international standard:

Environmental
Dry heat +55°C / 131°F, operational test
Damp heat +40°C / 104°F @ 93% relative humidity, operational test
Low temperature -15°C / 5°F operational test
Vibration 2Hz-100Hz, operational test to simulate propeller vibration and wave slamming
Corrosion Salt mist exposure, non-operational, 28 day total test
Acoustic noise 60dBA @ 1m to measure noise levels that may disturb bridge operations
Safety
Protection against accidental access to dangerous voltages Limited access to high voltages within the chassis
EMC
Radiated emissions Electromagnetic radiation from the chassis or cables that may interfere with other devices nearby
Conducted emissions Electrical noise conducted from the chassis on power cables that may interfere with equipment connected to the same power supply
Radiated susceptibility Immunity to electromagnetic radiation from other devices
Conducted susceptibility Immunity to electrical noise on power lines
Electrostatic discharge Immunity to 6000 Volt contact discharge and 8000 Volt air discharge
Compass safe distance Magnetic field radiation that may interfere with compass operations
