NX Sea Data Packages

Sea Data Packages

Sea Data Set 1 with Triducer 10620018 WSI Connection Box The Wireless Server Interface (WSI) Connection Box forms the core of the NX instrumentation system; the central point at which all the data collected from the transducers is processed and then sent down a single cable to the Sea Data and, if installed, Wind Instrument displays. Among its many functions, the WSI combines boat speed and apparent wind speed & angle, to calculate the true wind speed & angle. The WSI communicates directly with the wireless Wind Transducer via a unique radio pairing, and the slim and compact box is quick and simple to install.

Sea Data Set 1 10620019 The NX Sea Data Set 1 combines a Sea Data multifunction instrument, WSI connection box and a 43mm log and temperature transducer and a 43mm depth transducer. This is ideal for the user who prefers to use two transducers or who already has the necessary thru hull fittings in the hull. With the WSI connection box collecting and processing the data that it receives from the two transducers, the Sea Data instrument can be set to display a combination of the following; Speed Distance run Depth Water temperature Start timer Deep / shallow alarms

NX Triducer for Speed, Depth and Temperature The latest in thru-hull transducers, the Triducer requires only a single aperture in the hull to collect three separate sets of data; speed, depth and water temperature. The single fitting reduces drag through the water, saves on maintenance, and maximises the integrity of the hull. The Triducer is made from glass-filled polyester for strength and can be retracted to reduce fouling when at rest. A dummy plug is supplied for fitting when not used for long periods.

Sea Data Log with 43mm Log/Speed Transducer 10620017

This instrument allows the user to access any of the digital information provided by the NEXUS Network, and in any combination. The display shows the data in clear, easy to read digits, with both primary and secondary readouts. Built to withstand the toughest conditions, it also allows the user to access a comprehensive range of information — at the press of a button via a built-in remote control complete with four dedicated preset buttons that allows the selection of up to 10 favourite settings. The result is that the helmsman or navigator can pre-programme a series of preferred data combinations suited to different points of sailing or particular locations, thereby saving valuable time in adjusting instruments at critical moments.

Features: • Access any of the digital information provided by the NX system. • Shows the data in clear, easy to read digits. • Primary and secondary readouts • Built-in remote control • Four dedicated preset buttons • 10 favorite settings

NXR XLR Instrument NXR XLR Instrument 20620061 The XLR instrument is the all-new mast instrument designed by Nexus specifically for the NXR instrumentation system. The result of a long process of customer consultation the XLR features 63.5 mm (2.5 inch) digits, which have been proven as the ideal size for large racing yachts. Their first class readability is further enhanced by their crisp presentation. Fully programmable from the navigation workstation, the XLR displays incorporate a host of new features designed to maximize their utility to the Grand Prix racing crew. These stylish and rugged displays are nitrogen filled and fully waterproof, capable of withstanding extended, open ocean conditions. Despite their size they weigh just 300 g each

NXR Steer Pilot

Features: • Inverted LCD with high light output makes the display easy to read at night without any risk of loss of night sight • Choice of red or green background light separates instruments and allows crew to differentiate key datasets • Option of two colours for frames — graphite grey and light grey. Allows owner to select a colour scheme that best suits his boat’s overall design • Easy-to-read lead text ensures that viewers recognize which function is displayed, avoiding potentially costly mistakes • Multilanguage options for lead text

NXR Steer Pilot 20620063 The steer pilot is a highly innovative instrument that has proven its value out on the racecourse many times since it was first introduced as part of the NX2 system in 2005. Put in simple terms, this invaluable instrument continuously displays to the helmsman the direction in which he should be steering in order to reach a given point in the fastest and most efficient way. It does this by combining data from the compass, speed transducer and GPS and when required analyses it against a boat’s technical specification, most commonly the polars, to determine the best route. When the helmsman deviates from that route the needle instantly moves away from the centre line, indicating in the clearest way possible the direction and extent of that deviation. The system updates five times per second, ensuring that there is no time lag between the error occurring and the information being transmitted to the helmsman. Using the NXR steer pilot quickly becomes second nature to the helmsman, and will hold his concentration for extended periods without becoming tiring or straining his vision. Meanwhile the navigator can update the parameters at the navigation workstation at any time and the new optimum course will instantly be indicated on the instrument without any need for the verbal transmission of complex instructions. As well as indicating the fastest point of sailing, the steer pilot can also be programmed to indicate; • Deviation from a compass course • Deviation from a pre determined apparent wind angle • Course to waypoint, with or without compensation for drift For more details visit www.marinemegastore.com or call 0871 8732404 10

Autopilot Package Options

The Drive Units are specifically designed for autopilot use to give high mechanic and hydraulic accuracy with a long lifecycle. It is designed for low internal leakage to give faster and more accurate steering with low power consumption. In addition, they offer extreme rudder precision via variable motor speed and soft start/stop. Further, the pumpsets are very quiet making them very popular with sail boat owners. NEXUS offer two types of hydraulic drive units; the integrated linear drive or Pumpset with Linear Drive combination for vessels with mechanical steering. Other types of non hydraulic drive units may also be used (linear, rotating or relay/solenoid). The weather resistant design with its compact size allows for installation in cramped areas.

Racing Compasses ComNav racing compasses have been developed with the world?s top racers and sailors while in the midst of winning several World and Olympic titles. The tactical scales and ease of readability give you a distinct advantage in the heat of a race. The cone-shaped cards with gimballed lubberlines have the main steering scale on the horizontal plane, while the tactical scale is printed on the vertical edge. The Racing Series Detecting windshifts may be the only difference between winning and losing. The tactical scale grades from 0-20 with the figures corresponding on port and starboard tacks. If the reading on the starboard tack is 2, then the reading on port after tacking should be 2. In this way, all you have to do is remember one number. This feature is a great benefit in triangular course racing where you want to detect wind shifts, not your actual course.

Four Steps in Choosing a Compass 1. What kind of boat will the compass be used on? The main differences between sailboat compasses and powerboat compasses are the damping characteristics and the heeling angle limit. Powerboat compasses usually have fixed lubber lines in order to maintain best dynamic operation. Sailboat compasses will have gimballed lubber lines and a greater heeling angle limit. 2. What size is the boat? The further the compass will be from the helmsman, the larger the compass you should have. If your boat is greater than 8 meters (approximately 26 feet), consider a 100 Series or larger capsule. ComNav compass models are named for the apparent size of the compass card. For example, the compass card on a 70 Series compass has an apparent size of 70mm (2 3/4 “) while the 125 Series has an apparent size of 125mm (4.9”). We say “apparent” size since the dome and fluid inside the compass magnify the actual card size. 3. Where will the compass be mounted? There is a Comnav compass for every mounting need. Many series are available in different mounting styles: Bulkhead, Flush-mount, Overhead, On the Mast, or Bracket-mount. All compass models are designed to eliminate unnecessary drilling during installation. Regardless of mounting type, your compass should be positioned where it can easily be read from the helm, even in darkness when illuminated. Position the compass as far away as possible from iron objects or other magnetic sources such as loud speakers, windshield wiper motors, etc. 4. What kind of compensators do you need? Deviation or soft iron compensators are a must on steel-hulled vessels. However, magnetic disturbances will be found on almost every boat regardless of construction material. For this reason ComNav recommends the use of compensators for all compass applications where the compass will be used for navigation. Most of the various compass models are available with built-in compensators. Remember that the distance to the source of interference is more critical than the strength of it.

Features to look for in a compass Look for these important features found on ComNav compasses:

Magnetic Zones The earth’s magnetic field changes in intensity depending on geographic location. This varying field causes a compass card to tilt away from the horizontal. To offset this, counterweights are placed on the compass card so that it balances horizontally. This allows the compass card to swing smoothly rather than dragging on the top or bottom of the compass capsule. ComNav compasses are balanced to operate in one of three magnetic regions; MN, ME, and MS. Use of a compass outside its region can effect its ability to give an accurate heading; in extreme cases the compass may stick.
