Title Maritime navigation and radiocommunication equipment and systems - Digital interfaces - Part 400: Multiple talkers and multiple listeners - Ship systems interconnection - Introduction and general principles
Project Number 13797
Abstract/Scope This standard series, EN 61162-400 and upwards, specifies a communication protocol for use in interconnected maritime systems. Specifies an interface description language for use together with the protocol, a set of rules for the use of this language and a set of standard interfaces described in the language. Provides a test plan and list of required documents for equipment using this standard. This part of EN 61162 gives a general overview of the functionality of the protocol and provides definitions common to the other fragments of the standard.
