Transas Marine has switched to a new-generation, modern design of hardware for its Navi-Sailor range of navigation systems. The new hardware solutions are available as full-size pedestal mount and desktop consoles. The updated hardware has been designed to support the new software technology used in the Transas Navi-Sailor line, which required improved hardware performance.
The hardware set comprises a console and built-in RS-3 marine computer, which will be applicable as the standard Marine Processing Unit (MPU) for the entire range of the company’s navigation products.
The desktop version is a desirable solution for small craft or retrofit. When the bridge space is limited, the console can be located on the chart table, while the RS-3, as a separate module, can be positioned anywhere else. Another advantage of the new consoles is that they are pre-cabled and delivered as “plug and play” solutions allowing easy installation onboard the ship. The new modern-style appearance combined with the improved functional characteristics and smaller dimensions of the new Transas consoles has reportedly attracted numerous orders from the USA, UK, Russia and Europe.
