Sperry M a r i n e Delivers N e w Type A p p r o v ed M C 5 0 0 M a r i n e C o m p u t er

Sperry Marine has completed the delivery of 26 MC 500 Marine Computers to Delmas Shipping, France.

This is the first stage component of Sperry Marine's integrated ship management system for use in data communication and spare parts management. Sperry Marine's MC 500 has been type approved by Bureau Veritas, Det Norske Veritas, Lloyd's and Germanischer Lloyd for use as a load calculator.

MC 500 is a ruggedized version of the Unisys Micro IT, a high-speed Intel 80186-based machine. It is smaller, faster and offers the most flexible configuration. Its enhanced graphics color display offers crisp resolution of 640 dots by 350 dots in up to 16 colors for clearer text and easier-to-understand graphics.

MC 500 has undergone extensive environmental, mechanical, electrical and vibration testing. Its certification is the result of unique custom design of our ruggedized assembly.

In addition to load calculation, MC 500 can be used with Sperry Marine's various application programs such as the "StarBaud" high-speed data communications program; Spare Parts Inventory Management; Planned Maintenance and Fleet Payroll/Personnel Management programs.

Sperry Marine is a major manufacturer of marine navigation and control systems and a leader in radar and collision avoidance systems for all types of vessels.
