Why using Martek approved batteries on your BNWAS onboard your vessel is important?
An international market leader in safety and environmental equipment, Martek Marine has developed Navgard™ ‐ the market’s easiest to install and fully compliant BNWAS with Type Approval from all the major Classiﬁcations Societies to IEC 62616 : 2010.
Navgard™ is the only BNWAS approved by ALL major classiﬁcation societies: ABS, Bureau Veritas, China Class, Croatian Register, DNV, Germanischer Lloyds, Indian Register, Korean Register, Lloyd’s Register, Polish Register of Shipping, RINA, Russian Register.
Navgard™ has an integral high intensity siren for bridge alarm so you don’t need to buy and install a separate one and has an integral cabin select function so you don’t need to buy and install a separate selector switch. Also, Navgard™ has its own battery back‐up so you don’t have to install an additional emergency power supply cable.
However, we’ve recently been made aware of non-Martek approved batteries that are being sold and openly supplied in the market for use with our Navgard™ BNWAS, which led to a CRITICAL SAFETY WARNING being issued.
Are you considering using non-Martek approved Navgard™ batteries for your BNWAS?
You need to be aware that:
- Error LED will persist in the main unit, causing issues during surveys.
- The non-approved battery will potentially not provide sufficient backup power to Navgard in event of a mains power outage.
- Non-approved battery could lead to damage of electrical components on the motherboard which will lead to more expensive repairs.
Navgard™ is the World’s No.1 BNWAS and is approved by all major classification societies.
Get compliant and get on with your job.
By choosing Navgard™ Batteries from Martek Marine for your BNWAS, you can rest assured that all compliance issues have been met and that you have chosen a quality product from the market leader.
