Safe operations at sea or in harbour
The XDi-N extends the functionality of the standard XDi display, by providing the ability to toggle between up to 4 different screens either remotely or physically through buttons on the front, making it an even more cost effective and space saving solution. Additionally, the XDi-N introduces an extra NX2 NMEA extension module which has NMEA inputs as well as outputs, expanding the functionality of the XDi-N to allow a complete out-of-the-box wind measuring solution using DEIF’s WSS 550/750 wind sensors for wind/weather applications and as a supplementary display for DEIF’s WAU 100 Wind Alarm System.
For integration into navigation applications such as compass systems, DEIF also offers the XDi-N Navigation variant.
Different working modes such as Harbour Manoeuvres, Steaming and modes specific to the vessel type, often require different information to be displayed on screens. With multiple XDi-Ns, these working modes can be defined across multiple devices so each XDi-N can present a relevant screen for each working mode; yet another space and time saving feature.
Starting with a simple relative wind indication, the Wind and Weather libraries also support the necessary speed, heading and compass information to allow for more advanced indications such as true and geographic wind indications. The standard Wind and Weather libraries include:
Examples: standard wind indicators for relative, true and geographic true, and alarm outputs
Alarm relay output option via DX Extension module
- Wind and weather
Examples include wind, air temp, humidity and pressure.
As with the standard XDi, to meet specific application or branding needs or to facilitate harmonised designs, DEIF offers a highly cost effective and fast custom XDi library design service, also pre-MED approved where applicable.
To simplify ordering for DEIF’s popular standard wind systems, two XDi-N variants are available, preconfigured with the Wind library:
- XDi-N main wind indicator
- The XDi-N main wind indicator is delivered with one NX2 NMEA input/output (I/O) for connection to a wind sensor
- XDi-N wind repeater
- The XDi-N repeater wind indicator (for example for aft applications) has the same functions as the main unit but receives data from the main unit via CAN bus (XDi-net)
