3-Screen Vortex Advantage

Optimized for the downward facing views required in STS and RTG cranes, the 3-screen advantage provides a low-cost solution for a high-fidelity experience transferable to the quay.

5-Screen Vortex Advantage

The ideal solution for training driving vehicles as well as breakbulk and bulk handling cranes. Offers an immersive, fuller field of view to train in scenarios requiring situational awareness such as driving.

Unique Benefits

Vortex Advantage Simulator - Adaptable

Easily adaptable

The Vortex Advantage is ready to mirror your terminal’s fleet of equipment: To complement CM Labs’ suite of training simulators for port operations, the Vortex Advantage features equipment-specific hot-swappable control sets and pedals.The two differing screen configurations focus attention and build working habits that replicate real working conditions.

Engaging training experiences

Vortex Advantage simulators feel and look like the real thing. A motion platform, authentic control sets, audio cues, and rich visuals reproduce the feel of the actual machine and view from the cabin, ensuring an accurate experience so skills developed transfer easily to live equipment.

Equipment training packs

From ship-to-shore and ship pedestal cranes, to reachstacker and other cargo handling equipment, we offer a wide range of ports and container terminal equipment training simulators that can run on a single hardware platform.

Realistic simulators are an effective tool to evaluate and assess apprentices-in-training for both efficiency and safety. Tracking vital metrics across the entire training scenario, instructors can review statistics after completion, allowing for detailed after-action reviews and reporting.

Vortex Ports hardware platforms

With swappable controls, flexible configuration options, and industrial-grade hardware, CM Labs offers a family of scalable Vortex port simulator hardware platforms that can grow with your requirements and budget.

Instructor Operating Station

The IOS enables instructors to initiate Vortex Port Equipment Simulator exercise sessions and engage trainees by exposing them to the types of variable conditions they will experience in the real world.
