A reliable, high-quality display is essential to maximize the potential of an integrated navigation system. Xenex Navigation (Vancouver, Canada) announced the new Xenex Navigence line of high-bright marine displays for radar electronic charting and general marine applications. The Navigence Daylight-Readable (XDR) and Sunlight-Readable (XSR) marine displays are flat-panel, TFT, LCD displays with screens of 12.1”, 15”, and 17” respectively. The XDR and XSR series provide mariners a reliable, high-brightness and high-resolution screen image under extreme lighting conditions.
Both series are light-weight, compact, and are available in black and white. They come with touch-screen and various mounting options. Products such as the Navigence XDR and XSR marine displays are typical to the growing PC-based marine electronics market. “Cost has become an important issue in the purchase of a marine display that meets the rising standard of safe navigation,” states Harvey Russell, President of Xenex Navigation. “With cost-effectiveness in mind, we offer the XDR and XSR high-bright displays that satisfy the needs of different marine environments. They are the perfect balance between affordability and performance.”
