with a passion for performance Message from CEO Richard Macalister The decision to purchase the majority holding in Nexus Marine along with my business partner Dean Barker in early 2009 was an easy one as we had long been involved with distributing the Nexus brand in New Zealand and were impressed with the design quality and reliability of the products. Nexus Marine is based in Sweden and our two other partners Jan Silfven and Jonas Magner have had a long association with Nexus from the time it was created as a result of a de-merger of the marine division from Silva one of the world’s oldest and most respected marine instrument developers. We all share a love of sailing and our combined knowledge of yachting, from the top end race market through to the family cruising yacht, gives us a real understanding of needs of the yachtsman and the conditions in which our instruments must perform. In a market where mass manufacturing has decreased specialisation, we remain focused on precision instrumentation for yachts. Our brand is driven by performance and reliability, and has a business model that allows race yacht innovations to surface in the recreational market. You can trust Nexus to collect analyse and display the data that informs your sailing decisions. From a foundation of Swedish precision and excellence, Nexus looks always to the horizon of innovation.

DEAN BARKER – HELPING TO HELM NEXUS As a major shareholder in Nexus Marine, Dean Barker is able to bring his experience at the highest level of yacht racing to the boardroom table. His integrity, extraordinary focus and passion for sailing are a perfect fit with the Nexus philosophy. Famously calm under pressure, Dean Barker approaches the yacht equipment business in the same way he approaches America’s Cup racing. Second is not good enough. “Getting involved with the marine industry is a natural progression for me”, says Dean Barker. “Nexus represents the sharp end of innovation and the company’s business systems ensure that there’s no room for compromise with quality and manufacturing standards.” Dean began his sailing career at 10 years of age and collected an impressive range of yachting titles in P-class and Laser yachts before he graduated to the unforgiving world of matchracing. His first taste of America’s Cup campaigning came when he was invited to help Team New Zealand with their preparations for the 1995 campaign. While he declined to join the racing in San Diego, opting instead to concentrate on his Olympic Finn obligations, Dean signed on for Team New Zealand’s 2000 defence of the cup. It was Dean’s task to provide the Team New Zealand race team with a worthy competitor during preparation for the defence. He helmed the tune-up boat, often getting the better of Russell Coutts at all stages of racing. America’s Cup history was made when Dean, aged just 26, helmed NZL60 to victory in the final race of Team New Zealand’s 5-0 ‘blackwash’ over challenger Prada on Thursday 2 March 2000. Dean continues to be central to New Zealand’s America’s Cup and Louis Vuitton Trophy ambitions. He also hopes to sail in the next Tour de France à la Voile. The challenge is raced in new Archambault-designed M34’s, which are equipped with Nexus instrumentation. “Getting selected as the official electronics supplier for the Tour de France à la Voile M34s is a huge tick for Nexus”, says Dean.

A Passion for development Since its creation in 2006, Nexus Marine, has achieved a leading market position offering reliable and accurate products with innovative features and designs focused on the unique requirements of the sailing yacht. Leading the research and development team is Jan Silfvén who came to Nexus from the demerger of Silva. He has over 20 years experience in marine electronics development. Added to this he is a keen sailor giving him a huge understanding of the requirements of both the racing and recreational sailor. Jan works closely with Dean Barker in the development of new products for the racing market. Jan Silfvén commented: “We really believe that having one of the worlds best racing sailors on our research and development team gives us a leading edge in understanding the needs of the racing sailor and ensuring we can provide the most advanced technologies for our customers”. In addition to the input from Dean, Nexus maintains a pro-active research programme and is attentive to feedback from all customers, agents, sales representatives and sailors in order to know the best way to improve the existing products The company operates both in-house and on the water testing with a view to improve the products’ performance and development of new products, always with the intention of ensuring they are satisfying their customers who look for advanced equipment that give safety, simplicity and improved functionality on the water. The team at Nexus understands the unique demands of the yachtsman and is passionate about developing products for you.
Wind transducers: the twin fin technology Our wind transducers are all based on the same twin fin technology. It features a three-bladed propeller and double wind vanes, which are toed in to give extremely good stability in both low and high wind speeds. The three-bladed propeller, unlike the more common cups design, is always 100% efficient. That, together with the optic reading technique, makes Nexus transducers superior at low wind speeds and also provides for excellent linearity. What’s more, all our wind transducers are mounted on a carbon arm for more resistance and durability.
nexus New generation adBOX The new adBOX has been created by us to expand the ability of the Nexus Network to connect to an increased range of transducers and sensors giving you even more flexibility to design a system that meets your specific requirements.
HPC Compass The HPC Compass features a 6-axis configuration that also incorporates heel and pitch. It provides exceptionally accurate vital data, such as true wind angle, even when the boat is heeled right over. Nexus HPC Compass represents a real advance in high-end racing compass transducers.
NX INSTRUMENTATION - SAIL INTO THE AGE OF WIRELESS The NX range – precision instruments for sail and power You might not be battling around the buoys every weekend, but you still deserve the very best in marine instrumentation. For too long the racing boats have had the monopoly on stylish design, top quality displays and the latest in computer and networking technology. It’s time to level the playing field. Nexus NX instrumentation offers cruising yachtsmen an entrylevel system that combines precision, elegant styling and top quality displays with a flexibility that allows your system to grow with you as your needs and ambitions develop. While the NX system has a race boat pedigree, the system is designed to be quick to set up and simple to operate. Cabling has been kept to an absolute minimum, in fact done away with altogether as far as the wireless wind transducer is concerned, to keep installation as easy as possible.
Easy system expansion Start with a single Sea Data display, WSI connection box and log transducer that gives your boat speed and distance run, and then add additional capabilities as your needs change, such as combi and wind transducers, with all the information transmitted by a single cable. Or, if you choose, you can have multiple multifunction Sea Data instruments on deck or at the chart table. The NX Wind Instrument adds the final touch, displaying true and apparent wind data in digital and easy-toread graphical form.
Information at your fingertips The Sea Data lets you switch between depth, speed and wind angles quickly and simply using buttons and menus. It couldn’t be simpler. The information you request will be displayed in large, clear digits that all your crew will find easy to read.
NX DISPLAYS The NX system offers two, versatile displays to meet all the needs of the cruising navigator; the digital multifunction Sea Data and the digital / analogue Wind Instrument, for maximum convenience and flexibility.
Sea Data Instrument
The large easy-to-read display of the Sea Data instrument shows two sets of data at one time – a large primary read-out along with a second smaller data display. These can be quickly changed using the buttons on the face of the unit whilst additional units can easily be added to a system.
The NX Wind Instrument brings a new layer of functionality to the NX instrumentation system by allowing both the digital and analogue display of wind data on a single unit. In large, clear digits the Wind Instrument displays apparent wind speed and angle, and true wind speed and angle as calculated by the WSI. At the same time it shows the same information in analogue format for instant appraisal by helmsman and navigator. Stylishly designed and built to withstand the toughest marine environments, the Wind Instrument enables the Nexus NX to demonstrate its full potential as a versatile and capable instrumentation system.
When the Sea Data unit is connected through a WSI box to 52mm or 43mm transducers.the Sea Data instrument will display speed, depth and distance run as well as water temperature where the transducer allows. It also incorporates a start timer and deep and shallow water alarms. With the addition of a wind transducer apparent wind angle, wind speed and true wind angle will also be displayed.

How to select your transducer? The NX range offers various possibilities with transducers. The choice of your transducer will depend on the information you want and on the size of the hole you have in your boat Two sizes of through-hull transducers exist: the 43 mm and the 52mm. At Nexus, we recommend 43 mm transducers, because they are more accurate at low speed. However, if you already have 52mm holes in your boat, we can provide the larger size. Finally, if you don’t want to make a hole in the hull, or if your type of boat isn’t compatible with through-hull transducers, you can choose the Nexus transom-mounted transducer, which delivers speed, depth and temperature data. Go to page 40 for complete information on Nexus Transducers. 17
NX2 instrumentation Racing and cruising now have one thing in common – precise information While analogue instruments continue to play a vital role in navigation, due to the immediate impact they have on the visual senses, the majority of today’s sailors rely on digital displays for their essential information. Only digital can supply the level of precision needed to monitor minute changes in important variables, often down to as little as one hundredth of a unit. The Nexus NX2 system takes this advantage a stage further by linking all its digital instruments with a network. The benefit is that when new settings are keyed into one digital instrument, all the other instruments on the network receive the information simultaneously. This is an especially handy when a sailor wants to add trim values, activate lighting, clear the trip metre or calibrate instruments. Another important advantage is the ability to manage waypoints. You can enter or select waypoints from anywhere onboard - at the wheel or helm, at the navigation table or on the fly-bridge. Optimal function, readability and quality The network has been designed to connect three groups of core components in the most effective way. The NX2 Range offers both digital and analogue instruments, a server and five different categories of transducer (log-temp/ depth/wind/compass/GPS).
NX2 System and FDX
NEXUS is the Latin word for “connection” summing up exactly what the NEXUS network is all about. The NX2 system allows full interfacing with other third party equipment, which is NMEA compatible, allowing a fully integrated system giving the user a vast array of information on three types of displays - the standard LCD, Analogue or large digit XL displays.
The Nexus Server functions as a terminal station for the Nexus Network to which all transducers, NMEA input and output are connected. Furthermore, the Server has outputs for external M.O.B. (Man Over Board) and trim buttons and an external alarm. All screw terminals are clearly marked for easy installation. The NX2 unique plug wiring system enables a tidy and clean installation below deck with no excess cables.
NX2 systems are supplied with FDX software (Fast Data eXchange) opening the door to laptop convenience. FDX, together with the Nexus race software, increases the speed at which the information flows through the network by up to 10 times. FDX extends the frontiers of sailboat racing. Nexus Race Software also revolutionises the way calibration is done within the system. Now, from the laptop, you can adjust settings, calibrate and auto-deviate the compass. Difficulties in calibrating wind speed and wind angles become a thing of the past – the unique Nexus software does the job for you. So if you are a cruising or racing yachtsmen who requires integration with computers, chart plotters or other equipment the NX2 system allows you to build a system with a range of displays which is perfect for your requirements.

Nexus Race Support gives yachts the winning edge Inspired by sailors’ feedback during Sweden’s Round Gotland Race, Nexus Race Support was conceived in the mid 1990s. Today the Race Support team is a valuable part of the Nexus operation. The team endeavours to be on hand to help customers during major regattas in Europe, the United Kingdom, USA, Japan and New Zealand. They help sailors with education, tips, settings and faultfinding, so that yacht owners using Nexus equipment can get full value from their investment. “It’s important for us to be on the spot with our support, so that navigators and skippers can deliver their best on the water during their races”, says Claudio Bigiarini, Nexus Race Support specialist based in Italy. Before a major sailing event, members of the Nexus Race Support set up camp at the venue so that they can provide pre-race support for race teams who are using Nexus equipment. As well as offering land-based support, they can calibrate instruments and provide training during test sails. Every year the team attend more than 100 racing events around the world.
James Harris, who handles Nexus Race Support for the UK, is looking forward to a busy year. “This year we will be based at most major events from Scotland to Falmouth, Cardiff to Ramsgate. Where possible we try to provide weather forecasts for the day. In Scotland during the Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series we did a daily forecast to the fleet on local radio.” Every member of the Nexus Race Support team is an experienced competitive sailor. Swedish team member Christer Ahlbäck started sailing at the age of five and has raced one design classes, ORCi and IRC. Right now his sailing time is devoted to skippering a new 42 feet IRC boat in Sweden. Nexus Marine is committed to growing its Race Support service, because the benefits go both ways. Nexus customers learn how to get the best from their instrumentation, while Nexus gets real-world feedback that can be delivered straight to our research and development team. To see where you’ll find Nexus Race Support, go to www.nexusmarine.se and click on ‘Race Support Calendar’.
nx2 analogue NX2 Steer Pilot This is our most interesting and effective analogue instrument, drawing information from the electronic compass, waterspeed sensor and the GPS to create one single piece of critical data represented by the needle! The Steer pilot enables the helmsman to steer to an exact course using updated steering information refreshed 5 times every second by the NX2 server. The instrument needle instantly indicates the smallest deviation from the intended course or preferred wind angle. The Steer Pilot can also guide the helmsman to steer by the needle using the data from a Polar Diagram as reference. On a downwind course, the Steer Pilot enables the helmsman to steer the optimum course for the best VMG, refreshing the data five times per second. So, how do I use it? It’s really very easy. With a steering wheel, imagine that the instrument needle is connected by an invisible wire to the centre of your wheel. When the deviation appears, just turn the wheel as if it was connected to the needle, back to a straight up position, it’s that easy! With a tiller, imagine that the end of the tiller is ”fixed” at the tip of the needle and that you can pull the needle back to its straight up position just by ”dragging” it there, it just works! After a few minutes training you will be able to steer your boat in a straight line without even thinking!
NX2 Steer Pilot
You can select your steering reference from several options:
The NX2 analogue Wind angle instrument displays true and apparent wind angle. Fields are clearly marked in red and green allowing for superior readability, especially during night navigation. The scale and display is illuminated.
• Compass steering (up to 2 course memories) • Apparent wind angle to follow wind shifts • Waypoint steering (BTW) without compensation for drift.

First J/111 boat launched fitted with Nexus instruments Every now and then a new sailboat comes along that fulfils a real need in the market. Launched in July 2010 the J/111 is a sleek, speedy, one-design 36 footer that is the ultimate day sailing, racing and weekend cruising sailboat. Designed to be the best performing, easiest-to-sail boat of its size on the market it also offers the creature comforts needed (6’ headroom) to satisfy the occasional overnight cruise. The new J/111 hull #1 is fitted with 4 mast mounted XL20’s that, by using either the ”hotkeys” on the two cockpit mounted NXR Multi controls or the on board computer, with a single button press will display the information the crew needs. The four cockpit mounted Multi XL’s constantly provide a further 8 lines of data, the selection of these again being made using either the NXR Multi Controls or the on board computer. An Autopilot display/control completes the selection of digital displays fitted. In addition to the digital displays two analogue ”Steer Pilot” displays are fitted, these can be set up to give the crew a clear visual indication of alterations in course that may be required to get the very best out of the boat. As J Boat says “It’s all about versatility and the joy of sailing - how to have the most fun out of the time and resources invested” a sentiment easily understood and shared by the team at Nexus Marine.
NXR instrumentation The NXR racing instrumentation system is the ultimate in integrated networking for sailors who demand the best. It delivers fast update speeds of 8Hz and a range of displays that allows both racing and cruising crews to select a data combination that will meet their exact requirements.
nexus new generation: The Nexus NXR new generation enables you to monitor load cells and to make a Nexus complete integrated system for your racing boat improving your performance. The NXR new generation with the adBOX(analogue digital) and the nWIND also enables weight savings thanks to an innovative wiring technology. One of the new features of the NXR range is also the new bonded NXR Multi Control displays, avoiding any moisture behind the screen even in the worst conditions.
Accuracy of information
Every system is supplied with the FDX software, which allows the user to calibrate the system, easily and quickly from their PC. FDX software permits fast data exchange on the network and up to ten lines of race software generated data to be displayed.
A huge amount of time, energy and knowledge has been poured into developing NEXUS transducers, to ensure the accuracy of the information entering the system. The brief given to the research and development team was to think outside the square and design the best anemometer available. The team came up with a low drag unit that utilises a twin fin for a more stable wind direction, while utilising a propeller for measuring wind speed. The result is greater accuracy at low wind speeds. Coupled with that is a leading-edge HPC compass that utilises heel and trim to provide an accurate heading, as well as true wind information.
FLEXIBILITY of displays The NXR system has a wide range of displays, allowing you to tailor-make an information system that suits your individual requirements. The NXR multis come with two options: standard LCDs and the innovative inverted LCD, which reduces the light shining from the display at night to allow easy night vision. Large digit displays are available with the XL20 (46mm digits) and the XL30 (63.5mm digits), so that essential data can be easily seen on even the largest yacht. NXR analogue displays are also available for users who prefer data displayed by way of a pointer. Additionally, you can select between red and green backlighting for optimal viewing at night.
Ease of use The displays are designed to be remarkably easy to use. Four pre-programmed menu pages ensure that mast displays can be set up with the push of one button. Come to the top mark and hoist the spinnaker, push one button and the cockpit crew can have all the information they need.
NXR instruments specifications NXR Multi control The NXR multi is the most flexible instrument of the Nexus range, enabling each skipper to display the information he wants. You can setup up to four pre-programmed pages and even choose between Red or Green light.

M34 and Nexus instrumentation add extra excitement to the 2011 Tour de France á la Voile The annual Tour de France á la Voile is a multi-stage, monthlong race that links the English Channel to the French Riviera. With an original blend of buoy racing and lengthy offshore legs, it is one of the world’s most challenging one-design series. The inaugural Tour de France á la Voile was sailed in 1978. Since then more than 20,000 people have sailed the race, including many famous yachtsmen – Loïck Peyron and four times America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts, to name just a couple. Due to three distinct rankings, this sailing challenge is not just for professionals - amateurs and students can rub shoulders with the elite sailors. Of the 28 boats that took part in the 2010 event, entries were divided almost equally between students, amateurs and professionals. Like its famous cycling counterpart, the Tour de France à la Voile does a marvellous job of showcasing France’s scenery. The event visits around 10 harbours along the French coast. These vary from year to year, so that the excitement is shared amongst the coastal towns. Midway through the race, the boats are transported between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea by road. The 2011 event will see the introduction of a new yacht design – the M34, which is built by Archambault and designed by Joubert-Nivelt. This design was selected after an extensive review of more than 20 yacht designers and builders.
“I think it will be much more fun than a typical IRC boat of its size,” says Philippe Paturel of Archambault North America. “And, because it was designed with a lot of consultation from many Tour de France competitors, it will be well developed.” In terms of the overall design, the M34 is a powerful boat with a formidable sail plan. Its higher freeboard (relative to the Farr 30) is a major contributor to superior ocean-passage worthiness and it’s fully compliant with ORC offshore regulations. As a global player in the design and manufacture of navigational instrumentation, Nexus Marine is proud to have been chosen as the exclusive electronics supplier for the M34. All the boats will be fitted with the NXR range, which features the newly released Nexus XL20, a large digit repeating instrument for high performance boats. The XL20 allows sailors to customise the information they receive and vital data is easily visible, thanks to its larger screen and selectable red or green background lighting. “Getting selected as the exclusive electronics supplier for the Tour de France à la Voile M34 is a huge tick for Nexus”, says Dean Barker. “These boats and their equipment will lead the way in the future of one-design sailing and Nexus is excited to be part of it.”

The Drive Units are specifically designed for autopilot use to give high mechanical and hydraulic accuracy with a long lifecycle. Offering low internal leakage to give faster and more accurate steering with low power consumption, they provide extreme rudder precision via variable motor speeds and soft start/stop. Silent operation makes them very popular with sail boat owners. Nexus offers two types of hydraulic drive units: the Integrated Linear Drive for mechanical steering and the Pumpset for vessels with hydraulic steering. The weather resistant design with its compact size allows for installation in constricted areas. The servo can also be set up to operate a solenoid controlled drive unit enabling any sized drive or pump to be used.
Wind Transducers – Twin-fin technology Nexus has left nothing to chance. The best displays that money can buy will not make up for low-grade information sent from sub-standard sources, which is why Nexus has always paid special attention to the design and production of its transducers. Our wind transducers are all based on the same twin fin technology. It features a three-bladed propeller and double wind vanes, which are toed in to give extremely good stability in both low and high wind speeds. The three-bladed propeller, unlike the more common cups design, is always 100% efficient. That, together with the optic reading technique, makes Nexus transducers superior at low wind speeds and also provides for excellent linearity. What’s more, all our wind transducers are mounted on a carbon arm for more resistance and durability. Nexus offer a range of three wind transducers:
Wireless Wind Transducer The twin fin wireless wind transducer brings all the advantages of wireless instrumentation to the cruising sailor. Gone are the complications and aesthetic issues of running wiring from the top of the mast down to the chart table. Instead, the wind transducer establishes a unique pairing using radio signals with the WSI connection box. This forms the core of the NX instrumentation system, ensuring that each transducer / server pairing is distinct from every other. The information is then fed from the WSI connection box to your Nexus network, thanks to Nexus FDX protocol. The twin fin design makes this a highly stable and accurate wind transducer. The internal batteries are continuously charged by a small solar panel mounted on the transducer arm, have a life of around three to four years, and are easily replaced. Art. No: 22928 Wireless Wind Transducer incl. WSI-box Art. No: 22922 Wireless Wind Transducer without WSI-box Art. No: 22927 WSI-box 38
The Wireless Server Interface (WSI) connection box forms the core of the NX instrumentation system; the central point at which all the data collected from the transducers is processed and then sent down a single cable to the Sea Data and, if installed, Wind Instrument displays. Among its many functions, the WSI combines boat speed and apparent wind speed and angle, to calculate the true wind speed and angle. The WSI communicates directly with the wireless wind transducer via a unique radio pairing, and the slim and compact box is quick and simple to install. Art. No: 22927 WSI-box
nWind Transducer New for 2011 the nWIND transducer connects directly to the Nexus network providing 30% faster data transmission to the system. The highly successful design of the masthead anemometer has been retained with the use of a propeller providing a more accurate True Wind Speed (TWS) in lighter air whilst the twin fin design gives a more stable True Wind Direction (TWD). An easy, snap-in attachment for mast mounting is included. The nWIND transducer provides a highly accurate output for the Nexus network. SPECIFICATIONS Dimensions: 450x300mm (17.7x11.8”) Weight: 295g (10.4oz) Enclosure: Waterproof Power supply: 12V DC (10-16V) Current consumption: 20mA at 12V Accuracy: Angle ± 0.5%. Speed: ± 0.5 m/s (kts, bf)
nWind Race Transducer The nWIND Race Wind transducer overcomes the problem of upwash affecting the accuracy of wind information by raising the sensor above the mast top. The nWIND Race transducer connects directly to the Nexus network providing 30% faster data transmission to the system whilst allowing you to store calibration tables in the system for True Wind Angle (TWA) and True Wind Speed (TWS). The result is extremely accurate and fast wind data information which is all good news for the racing yachtsman. As with both the wireless and conventional forward-facing masthead wind sensors, each unit is factory calibrated to take out any sensor anomalies. This results in very accurate wind speed and direction information. These calibration values are permanently stored within the masthead unit. Using the FDX software provided with every NX2 and NXR pack, it is possible to calibrate the masthead unit to also take the effects of wind shear into account, making this a highly accurate wind sensor for both the racing and cruising yachtsmen. The nWIND Race transducer offers three mounting options: a conventional flat base, which is screwed to the top of the mast, a spigot type base, and for those unable to fit the vertical bracket a forward mounting option. SPECIFICATIONS Dimensions: 117.2cm Weight: 320g Enclosure: Waterproof Power supply: 12V DC (10-16V) Current consumption: 20mA at 12V Accuracy: Angle ± 0.5%. Speed: ± 0.5 m/s (kts, bf) Art.

WSI (Wireless Sensor Interface) Connection Box
TRANSDUCERS MRC Box (Mast Rotation Compensation)
Nexus TH 43mm Log transducer
New for 2010 the MRC Box enables compensation for wind angle on rotating masts. It measures the angle and direction of mast rotation, enabling the pilot to steer and the system to display true and apparent wind information, which is corrected to allow for mast rotation. An electronic compass, such as the HPC, must also be fitted to any system using the MRC. The MRC weighs only 40 grams and both the unit and all direct connectors are waterproof.

Nexus TH 52mm Depth Transducer This transducer measures water depth and has the same features as the 43mm. The only difference is a hull aperture of 52mm. Art.No. 22329, Depth Transducer TH52
GPS Antenna The compact and water-resistant GPS antenna is suitable for a wide range of applications. The differential GPS receiver is manufactured for reception of differential correction data in accordance with RTCM SC-104. It can be mounted directly on the deck, on a pulpit or on a mast using standard mounts. It can be connected directly to NMEA-compatible navigation equipment, such as PC or Radar.
The Triducer requires only a single aperture in the hull to collect three separate sets of data – speed, depth and water temperature. The single fitting reduces drag through the water, saves on maintenance and preserves the integrity of the hull. The Triducer is made from glassfilled polyester for strength and can be retracted to reduce fouling when at rest. A dummy plug is included for fitting when not used for long periods.

Heel Switch System
The team at Nexus developed the Heel Switch System to solve the speed discrepancy problems experienced when the speed and depth transducers need to be installed away from the centre line. These variances are common on multihulls, modern day short-handed yachts and older classic keel style designs.
Nexus Mast Brackets offer the possibility of mounting all the displays on the mast. They are all carbon made to ensure weight saving, robustness and great design.
The Heel Switch System consists of two small heel boxes - one for port and one for starboard - into which the two pairs of transducers are wired. These boxes process the raw speed, water temperature and depth data into the Nexus protocol, automatically selecting the correct box depending on which tack / gybe the yacht is on. The switching between the port and starboard boxes is done automatically depending on the heel of the boat, which is provided by a HPC Compass. If a compass isn’t fitted, the switching will be made on the apparent wind angle. Specifications The Heel Switch Systems includes two heel switch boxes (one port and one starboard) and one 0.4m interconnection cable.

silva Compasses Choose your compass Which compass do I need? What kind of boat do you have?
The main difference between a powerboat compass and a sailboat compass is the heeling angle limit and the damping characteristics. A powerboat compass has fixed lubber lines to maintain the best dynamics, while steel boats need compasses with D-correctors or soft iron correctors. Which size of compass do I need? What is the size of your boat?
If the compass will be read from a distance you will need a bigger compass. The simple thumb rule is: a boat longer than 7,5 meters (25 feet) requires a 100 series capsule or larger. 70 series has an apparent scale of 70mm 100 series has an apparent scale of 100mm 125 series has an apparent scale of 125mm What type of mounting do I need? Where will the compass be mounted?
There is a Silva compass for every mounting need. In the
bulkhead, on the dashboard, on the headlining, on the mast etc. All models are designed so that no unnecessary drilling is needed. Why do I need a compensator?
We strongly recommend the use of a compensator, and not only in steel boats. Almost all models can be supplied with a built-in compensator to avoid magnetic disturbances. Such disturbances will be found on any boat, the source varies from loudspeakers to the radio, engine, wipers, electronic instruments (not NX2) and other metallic components. Remember that the distance to the source is more critical than its strength. All Silva marine compasses have 5 years warranty.

Sail boat compasses Bulkhead mount compasses The bulkhead mount compasses (70P, 100P, 102B/H, 100B/H and 125B/H) are specifically designed for sailboats and yachtsmen demanding absolute accuracy with a steady card in all conditions and accommodating high heeling angles. Bulkhead-mounted front reading series with 3 yellow lubber lines for the 100 series and one yellow lubber line for the 70 series. The gimballed lubber lines stay vertical even if the boat is heeling (max 45°). The two extra lubber lines at 45° offset permit reading from the rail or an off steering position mounting.
Flush and pedestal mount compasses The flush and pedestal mount compasses are designed for those yachtsmen that demand absolutely accuracy and a steady card in all conditions, despite the heeling angle. An extended centre needle eliminates parallax errors and the gimballed yellow lubber lines stay vertical even when in rough seas. Compensation is standard. It is also possible to add a heeling compensator. The bulkhead compass 102B/H has a 100 mm capsule. It is standard equipped with red illumination. The cradle is gimballed and a heeling angle scale is printed on the compass front. The optional compensator is easy to fit in a holder under the detachable front. The front also covers the mounting screws. White protection cover included.

Sail race compasses The Elite racing models have been developed by the world’s top racers and Olympic sailors. The tactical scales and quick readability give a critical advantage. The cone-shaped card with gimballed lubber lines has a main steering scale on the horizontal part of the compass card and a tactical scale on the vertical edge of the card. Detecting wind shifts may be the tiny difference between winning and losing. Silva’s tactical scale grades from 0-20 and the figures correspond on port and starboard tack. If the reading on starboard tack is 2 the reading on port after tacking should also be 2. In this way you only have to remember one figure. This is a great benefit in triangular course sailing where racers need to watch the wind shifts, rather than their actual course. The double scale, divided into a green starboard and a red port scale, allows sailors to read the actual course on port and starboard tack from the helmsman’s normal position at the rail. You no longer have to add 45° to your reading. The green and red memory arrows tell you to tack if the figures decreases on starboard tack and to tack if the figures increase on port. The top scale allows you to read the course on downwind or to check the start line position.
