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.
