A large display, mast mounted, multifunction repeater is now being produced at our factory. The weatherproof repeater with its 60mm high numerals, is supplied complete with cables, data-box with six NMEA-0183 inputs ( With up to six sentences per input.), wireless remote control, stainless steel mounting brackets and weather cover. There are nine levels of red back lighting which permit easy night viewing of red characters on a black background. The overall case size is 211mm wide x 140mm high.
Currently programmed in are the screens shown below though we do welcome customer feedback as we will add to this list by popular demand.
Supernova Combi Tri and Anchor L.E.D mastlight
Supernova lights use high efficiency LEDs ensuring long life and low power consumption. A tough polycarbonate shell protects Supernova from the elements while a Gore-Tex membrane vent ensures equalization of pressure on the seals.
A simple two wire connection powers the Combi light. Connecting the red wire to positive and the black wire to negative will illuminate the tricolour light. Reversing the connections will illuminate the anchor light.
A pre-wired toggle switch is supplied with the Combi light to facilitate the supply reversal.
In the central position both lights are off. Switching left or right selects the required lighting configuration.
Supernova navigation lights are intended for use on vessels up to 12 metres in length. They comply with CE generic EMC standards and are waterproof to IP65 and IP67. There is no specific EU standard for LED navigation lights. Supernova lights do not have any national approvals.
Supplied with pre wired switch and mounting bracket.
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.
Sadly, as some component parts have been increasingly difficult to source this product is no longer in production. Anyone who has one can fit any of our digital depth sounders to the same Stingray depth transducer.
20W Semi Flexible SOLAR PANEL
At just 3.5mm thin our weather proof panels are tough enough to withstand being stepped on when wearing soft soled shoes
A solar panel can provide a near maintenance free solution to keeping batteries charged when unattended. An occasional wipe with a damp cloth is all that is necessary to ensure the panel continues to trickle energy into the battery. Keeping the battery topped up will improve its reliability and can extend its useful working life. Whilst solar panels give their maximum output in direct sunlight, even an overcast day can provide a useful level of charge.
The Nasa Marine 12 volt, semi flexible solar panel is robustly constructed on a fibre glass substrate and are protected by a scratch proof transparent Tedlar polymer. Only 3.5mm thick and lightweight, they have no metal outer components to make contact with the surface to which they are fitted. The efficient and stable polycrystalline cells are encapsulated between two tough outer layers so the whole panel is weatherproof and carries a limited one year warranty.
The panel can be gently flexed (in one dimension.) to follow a smooth curve, such as a coach roof, by up to 2.5cm per 100cm of panel length. Four, grommet finished, holes are provided for screw fixing. Alternatively panels can be glued into position using mastic. The panels do not contain glass and, when correctly mounted, can be stepped upon when wearing soft soled shoes.
A sealed junction box is fitted with 2.5m of output cable, a connector and fuse protected crocodile clips. Electrical connection is simple though the use of a solar regulator is recommended to prevent overcharge if the system is to be left unattended for long periods or the solar panel to battery ratio exceeds the minimum of 10W to 100Ah. An internal blocking diode prevents reverse current drain at night. The panel is protected with an inline 3 Amp fuse.
The 20W panel measures 510 x 360mm
Compact battery monitor, just 124 x 62mm x 23mm!
Based on the highly successful BM-1 marine battery monitor, the BM-1 Compact is especially designed for applications where space is at a premium.
Caravans, mobile homes, RV’s, small boats and renewable power installations can all benefit from the BM-1 Compact. It is able to monitor the performance of any 12 Volt lead acid battery system with a capacity up to 600 AmpHours. The BM-1 Compact is supplied with a precision 100 Amp shunt and prefabricated cables to enable simple DIY installation.
The unit continually monitors the voltage, the current (charge or discharge) and calculates the state of charge together with the time remaining to charge or discharge the battery.
This information can lead to a more efficient use of the battery enhancing its life and reducing the risk of failure.
Operation is very simple. One screen displays the voltage, current (charge or discharge) and a bar graph showing the remaining capacity. A flashing alarm is also included to warn if the capacity is getting too low. A second screen shows the remaining time available at the current charge/discharge rate together with the remaining capacity in both analog and digital format.
The BM-1 Compact consumes a miserly 1.5mA!
BM-1 Compact is used in various vehicles by the Ministry of Defence.
MOBi MOB Indicator
The Nasa MOBi is a state of the art, fail-safe transponder man overboard system. It consists of a base unit and up to eight active transponders for crew or valuable equipment. In operation the base station sequentially interrogates each transponder which then broadcasts its presence. In the event of a crew member falling overboard the drop in signal level is detected by the base unit which sounds a high intensity audible alarm. To aid identification of the missing crew member the base station continually displays the names of all the crew currently logged on, the signal levels of their transponder fob and their current status. Three AAA cells power each transponder for several weeks of continuous use. Should the base station be turned off the transponders will go to sleep with a life of several years. So if you are sailing with Tom, Dick and Harry don’t forget to take MOBi with you!
