Broadgate VER4000 -S-VDR

As part of the fourth generation of Broadgate VERs the new VER4000-S has been designed with the aid of our customers. VER4000-S is one of the most user friendly and cost effective systems available.

This new system records a vast array of onboard activity, including audio (both speech and ambient sound), radar, time, position, speed, heading, telegraph demand, engine and propeller activity, as well as a host of additional information.

For over 17 years, Broadgate Voyage Event Recorders have been fitted on almost every conceivable type of ship, including Ro-Ro ferries, bulk carriers, container ships, coasters, tankers and passenger vessels. All Broadgate VERs are supported by a global service and installation network, which spans over 140 offices in 44 countries.

Training and expansion of this network is an ongoing exercise, which continues to ensure that wherever a ship is in the world, installation, surveying and maintenance assistance is close at hand.

For Safer Seas

We can never make the sea calm, but we can make the ships that sail on it safer, by using advanced Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) technology to investigate and uncover the real causes of marine incidents.

In this area, nothing is doing more to help the world’s ship owners and managers than the pioneering range of Broadgate Voyage Event Recorders (VERs).

Unrivalled Experience

For over 17 years, Broadgate Voyage Event Recorders have been fitted on almost every conceivable type of ship, including Ro-Ro

ferries, bulk carriers, container ships, coasters, tankers and passenger vessels. As a result, millions of hours of operating experience have been acquired, experience which no other company in the world can match.

This experience has been recognised and called upon by both the UK Marine and Coastguard Agency and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) during the process of developing and introducing international legislation for VDRs and Simplified Voyage Data Recorders (S-VDRs).

The Broadgate VER4000 Voyage Data Recorder has been designed to fully comply with:

  • I.M.O. Performance Standard A.861(20)
  • I.E.C. Technical Standard IEC61996
