THE RETURN OF VDO MARINE

In recent years VDO Marine, the historic brand now developed, manufactured and distributed by Swiss veratron, has made a comeback. Among the many instruments developed by the company (with an analog or digital look) the latest, in order of time, are those in the OceanLink range. Range that includes all high-precision instruments useful for sailing.

MAXIMUM VISIBILITY NMEA 2000 AcquaLink A2C59501997 color displays self-configure as mast displays when used with other systems not manufactured by VDO Marine.

 

A “PARTERRE DE ROI” OF INSTRUMENTS

THE “HEART” OF THE NAVIGATION KIT The NavSensors A2C59501981 NMEA 2000 integrates magnetic compass, 10 Hz GPS module, three-axis accelerometer weather station (temperature and air pressure).
SENSITIVE AND PRECISE The precise VDO Marine A2C1029570002 NMEA 2000 carbon wind sensor ensures compatibility with on-board electronics.

The wind station, the instrument that measures GPS speed, the one that indicates real and apparent wind speed, the one that shows wind direction. Featuring NMEA2000 wiring and terminals and an ultralight compass sensor, it will enable you to keep an eye on every piece of boat data.

Among other interesting products, we particularly liked the AcquaLink 7-inch 24-bit / 16-million-color multifunction TFT AcquaLink displays with a mineral glass screen that use transmissive layer technology to ensure excellent readability in direct sunlight. The displays are fully customizable. You will be able to decide to your liking what data should be displayed, how it should be colored, and which should be displayed larger.

These advanced multipurpose ones can also function as single mast-foot repeaters. Their aluminum case (with antigalvanic treatment, specifically for marine use) prevents them from overheating. In fact, few people know that LED screens decrease their performance if they get too hot. www.veratron.com
