Radio remote control from Vetus
New security products from Vetus are the Boat Detection System and the Boat Monitoring System, both of which, in the case of theft, will send a message with the current GPS location of the boat, as well as the speed and the direction in which it is moving (Track & Trace).
Vetus also has a new radio remote control which can be used to switch either one or two electrically operated pieces of equipment on board. For example, a bow thruster, a stern thruster, or an electric anchor windlass.
In its range of practical accessories, Vetus has introduced a simple anti-fuel theft device to prevent a siphon hose being inserted into the deck filler and down into the tank.
Vetus' range of lubricants and coolants are specifically developed for the harsh marine environments; there are seven different products, including engine oil, gearbox oil, hydraulic fluids and organic engine coolant.
The new Fire Port, recently introduced by Vetus consists of a synthetic diaphragm, designed to be fitted into the door, hatch or bulkhead of any compartment which acts as a fire break, stopping air getting to the flames and shielding the crew.
Further, there is now a range of AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries, with capacities of 65, 100, 128, 161 and 214 Ah. Maintenance free, these batteries feature an electrolyte that is completely absorbed by glass mat separators between the lead-calcium plates. Therefore, this type of battery is completely leak-proof, even if the casing is damaged and they can be shipped by air freight if required.
Vetus also has a range of waste water tanks, with capacities from 42 to 390 litres, and gravity draining bulkhead mounted tanks with capacities of 60 or 80 litres. There is also a new range of ready-to-install tanks, complete with discharge pump and fittings mounted on the tank as standard. These are available with capacities from 42 to 120 litres and for 12V or 24V power supply. Installation time is dramatically reduced as it is only necessary to connect the hoses.
