Digital Yacht (stand 11A28) have launched a phenomenally fast onboard PC designed specifically for the most demanding of marine 3D charting applications. The new Aqua PC Pro uses Intel's latest i3-530 processor and features a solid state hard disk drive for the ultimate in reliability and speed. It comes pre-installed with the latest Windows 7 Premium Home (64 Bit) operating system together with 4 GB RAM, 10 x USB ports and built in high speed 802.11n wireless networking. It will also drive up to two displays using the latest HDMI and DVI/VGA connections. An optional, four port dedicated NMEA interface (all opto isolated) together with configuration software can be specified, that effectively allows the PC to act as a four way multiplexer for the most sophisticated of navigation programs and systems.
The new flagship Pro model completes Digital Yacht’s Aqua PC range, which features four models optimised for different marine computing requirements. From the entry level Aqua PC, through the specialised Aqua Nav and Aqua Media models, to the new Pro model, all share a common family design that perfectly balances; features, performance, power consumption and cost.
Despite its power, Aqua Pro measures just 30 x 27 x 7cm and operates directly from 12v or 24v DC without the need for an external inverter. It offers an amazingly quick zoom and redraw capability, unmatched by any dedicated marine type plotter. It is available now from www.digitalyacht.co.uk or by calling + 44 117 955 4474. Prices start from EUR 1599 ex VAT.
