The OceanView™ DataServer can be used to display all data on Windows®. Additionally the state of a remote OceanPack™ can be controlled by lights, and the OceanPack™ can be operated from this control station The OeanView™ Software is configurable and can be used in up to 10 user-defined screen-sets. Alerts are displayed in a special message window

OceanView™ is used on major RV vessels. In this example the largest RV Chinese vessel KE XUE is equipped with a complete OceanPack™ Sea-Air-Exchange AUMS system. Data are displayed in real-time in the central computer room The OceanView™ DataServer can be used with low hardware requirements as a “Passenger display”. On board of the RV BELGICA the crew uses the display during operations on deck
