The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released a consolidated version of the standard for “Maritime navigation and radiocommunication equipment and systems – Digital interfaces – Part 450: Multiple talkers and multiple listeners – Ethernet interconnection.” Edition 1.1 of IEC 61162-450:2011+AMD1:2016 CSV can now be purchased from the IEC webstore.
IEC 61162-450:2011+A1:2016(E) specifies interface requirements and methods of test for high speed communication between shipboard navigation and radiocommunication equipment as well as between such systems and other ship systems that need to communicate with navigation and radio-communication equipment. Is based on the application of an appropriate suite of existing international standards to provide a framework for implementing data transfer between devices on a shipboard Ethernet network. Provides a higher speed and higher capacity alternative to the IEC 61162-1 and IEC 61162-2 standards while retaining these standards’ basic data format. Provides a higher data capacity than IEC 61162-3. Specifies an Ethernet based bus type network where any listener may receive messages from any sender. This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2011) and its amendment 1 (2016). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
