EASY LIGHT LED Luminaire
The NASA Marine 12 Volt Easylight luminaire contains 48 high efficiency LEDs in a slender surface mounting package.
The cool white version (CW) is recommended where maximum illumination is required and the warm white (WW) where a more natural light is preferred. Light output for the (CW) is typically 300 Lumens and typically 250 Lumens for the (WW).
The unit is designed for surface mounting directly on a ceiling or wall using the screws provided. It is not waterproof and is intended for use in a dry cabin only.
When fitting ensure that the ventilation slots are not obstructed and take care not to over tighten the screws. When in operation the space behind the unit may get warm so avoid mounting on surfaces where this could cause a problem.
The power leads can be taken through a convenient hole in the mounting panel or alternatively through one of the end vent slots. Connect to a 12 volt DC supply via a suitable switch and a 1 Amp fuse. The red wire goes to the positive supply connection and the black wire to negative. (An internal diode protects the unit against supply reversal.)
RG 58 10 m Cable pack
Coaxial cables are vital to the performance of your antenna and radio system. Selecting the best coaxial cable has become more and more complicated as more suppliers are offering a broader range of products. The cable selected will affect the system’s cost, coverage and reliability. That’s why for our antennas we only use one type of coaxial cable, the TOP PERFORMANCE RG 58 CU MIL, designed to guarantee the best signal transmission.
Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is an invaluable source of energy on many sailing vessels. It should, however, be used with great care. In its gaseous form it is heavier than air and will always collect at the lowest level in a vessel. Any leak of gas, any spillage of liquid could sink to the bilge and, unable to escape, build up to explosive proportions.
The NASA Marine gas detector system warns if the level of LPG rises above 10% of the lowest explosive limit (LEL) giving adequate warning of the need to ventilate the area before a dangerous situation occurs. The system consists of a cabin mounted monitor and a remote sensor. The monitor gives visual and audible warning if gas levels at the sensor rise above 10% LEL and will warn of fault conditions such as damaged cables etc.
The splash proof sensor is supplied with a 5 metre cable and has a test button to check the system right through to the gas sense element. The sense element is user replaceable in the event of contamination. Supplied with power cable.
Tactical Wind Mast Sensor
A high performance system that sends NMEA wind speed and direction data 10 times a second.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind mast sensor is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence.
NOTE – This 3 wire NMEA mast unit is not compatible with earlier 5 wire analogue Clipper, Target or Cruiser wind systems. The earlier analogue mast sensor is available on the spare parts page.
- Mast transmitter supplied with 20 metres of cable
- NMEA 0183 4800 Baud data sentence MWV – update rate = 10 per second
- Wind speed 0 to 99.9 Kts
- Wind direction 0 to 360 degrees
- Supply voltage nominal 12 Volts
- Wind sensor supply current 9mA
Stingray Echo Sounder
The NASA Stingray Echo Sounders come in a slimline case with an easy to read extra bright LED display on a 4 inch dial. They both have a dual audible alarms for shallow and deep water which can be set to give two ranges either 1-25 metres or 1-100 metres, and are simplicity itself to operate. They come complete with transducer and stirrup mounting bracket and only require connection to the ships 12v power supply.
