Raymarine GmbH will be showcasing the new i70 instrument and p70 and p70R autopilot control heads on Stand 11A42 in Hall 11 at boot Dusseldorf. Stylish new-look controls and displays packed full of powerful features, stunning graphics and a highly intuitive user interface herald the Raymarine next generation.
Boasting a 100 mm (4.1 inch) over-sized LCD display, the i70 instrument displays maxi 43mm digits in full screen mode. The superior 160˚ horizontal and vertical viewing angles ensure the screen display can be seen clearly from all angles - even sideways on, and is further enhanced by the anti-reflective coating for improved visibility in bright sunlight. i70’s advanced LED backlighting offers lower power consumption; delivering vibrant colour and contrast whilst using up to 35% less power than other colour instruments.
In another ‘world first’ for Raymarine, the i70 instrument has the ability to act as an AIS repeater, showing the 25 closest AIS transmitting vessels and enabling vessel information to be obtained from individually selected targets. This new ‘AIS at-a-glance’ display is an invaluable extra visual reference and adds to situational awareness for all on board.
From traditional analogue dials to engine information and tank levels, i70 has the graphic capabilities to show it all; supported data views include Wind, Speed, Depth, Tridata, Engine (NMEA2000), Environmental (NMEA2000), Fuel (NMEA2000) and navigation.
Sharing the i70’s superior display features but in a 8.9 cm (3.5 inch) screen format, the equally good-looking autopilot control heads are available in 2 versions; p70 with -/+ 1˚ and -/+ 10˚ push-button controls designed primarily for sailing vessels, and p70R with a combination of push-button and rotary controls for powered craft. p70 and p70R autopilot control heads are easily customisable, able to display pilot information in a number of different formats to suit the user.
p70 and p70R both support Auto, Standby, Pattern, Track and Wind Vane autopilot modes with the p70R having additional Power Steer and Jog Steer modes. Fishermen will find the wide range of fishing patterns especially useful, freeing them up to concentrate on their surroundings and the all important fish. Able to support multiple data sources, p70 and p70R autopilot heads are compatible with Raymarine SPX Series pilots and Raymarine ST pilots (S1, S2 and S3 including the G variants).
i70, p70 and p70R all have Raymarine’s new LightHouse user interface on board; it’s simple and quick to use and is also consistent with Raymarine’s new e7 multifunction display, so once users are familiar with LightHouse they will be equally at home with all Raymarine’s new products.
