Raymarine launches new Super HD Digital Radar, new SPX autopilots and ST70 Autopilot Head at
12 July 2008
Raymarine will be launching a selection of new products on stand G88 at the Southampton Boat Show. New at the show will be Raymarine’s Super HD Digital radar. Designed to operate with the G series or E series Multi Function Displays, this revolutionary technology gives improves target detection with clear, full colour images on screen, making it significantly easier for users to operate and understand radar images. Raymarine’s Super HD Digital radar gives the equivalent of top end commercial radar quality to leisure boaters, while using 25% or less power than conventional radars.
Also new at the show is Raymarine’s new generation range of SPX autopilots. Designed to suit every size of boat from small powerboat to world class racing yacht, SPX pilots are suitable for wheel or tiller installation. A key feature is that every SPX pilot comes complete with integrated rate gyro. Easy to install and calibrate, the SPX’s superior technology offers sophisticated features as standard. These include Advanced Steering Technology, which intelligently monitors the yaw of the vessel and can anticipate directional changes to ensure razor sharp course keeping, and AutoLearn, where the pilot automatically understands the vessel’s steering characteristics, making calibration easier and allowing the vessel to constantly adapt to changing sea conditions. These features not only make the autopilot safer, enabling for example easy handling in sailboats while running downwind, with the kite up, and a rolling sea, but for powerboats also reduces fuel consumption by improved course keeping when under engine power.
Raymarine’s new ST70 instrument system is also extended with the ST70 AP Autopilot Head, on show for the first time at Southampton. This full colour display is compatible with the new SPX autopilots and existing ST1 course computers. The large clear screen can be selected to show digital data, compass rose or 3D isometric screens. It can be used as a master display or a colour repeater, and enables one touch autopilot operation. The ST70 autopilot head also offers a choice of frequently used autopilot functions – such as fishing patterns, box pattern search, and full 180 or 360 degree turns.
Designed for high performance and ease of use, Raymarine’s award winning products are available through a global network of dealers and distributors
