Vesper to show new marine radio at METSTRADE
Vesper Marine will show its latest VHF marine radio at this year’s METSTRADE.
Cortex has wireless touchscreen handsets, built-in Class B SOTDMA smartAIS transponder and remote vessel monitoring.
“Innovation in AIS technology, touchscreen devices and vessel monitoring has skyrocketed in recent years, but marine VHF hasn’t kept pace and remains an anachronism,” said Jeff Robbins, chief executive of Vesper Marine, which is distributed in the UK and Ireland by Marathon Leisure. “Cortex fundamentally changes how you interact with safety communication systems.”
Cortex includes Vesper Marine's smartAIS technology which alerts boaters of potentially hazardous situations. It combines navigation sensor data such as wind speed, GPS and AIS information with alarm management that prioritises alerts for the most urgent response. Its MOB button activates a track back mode on all handsets and marks the MOB waypoint on NMEA 2000 connected multi-function displays.
Free basic monitoring gives boaters twice-daily updates about power, location, wind, depth, bilge and temperature whilst the Monitor Premium subscription unlocks real-time vessel status and control over boat systems such as refrigerators, lights and heaters.
With a submersible IPX7 rating, the wired H1 and wireless H1P handsets have a 4 inch multi-touch display. Up to ten handsets provide up to 85 dBA of audio through the unit’s 10W speaker. The onboard and monitor apps send safety data and alerts directly to a smartphone or tablet and are available on iOS and Android.
Vesper will be exhibiting at METSTRADE on stand 02.214.
