Sail-World.com : Raymarine launches G Series navigation system

Raymarine launches G Series navigation system

'Raymarine G series displays'    Raymarine Asia
Raymarine’s new premier navigation system, the G Series, was on show for the first time at METS. Offering more than just navigation, G Series is a complete information, command and entertainment system providing a comprehensive and powerful solution for all onboard requirements.

The G Series is a high performance networked system that features a built-in high capacity hard drive, the GPM400 processor module. This offers ten times the processing speed of conventional marine electronics, providing superb PC-like performance. The G Series is fully marinised, designed to withstand the harsh saltwater environment.

The system provides a central display for navigational data, instrument information, video and on-board cameras, radar, fishfinders and cartography.

The G Series comes pre-loaded with worldwide cartography from Navionics. This highly detailed mapping shows navigation charts, 3D topography, aerial photographic views of ports, port data, animated tides and currents. Charts for entire geographic regions are loaded on the internal hard drive.

The G Series monitors are built around a rugged aluminium chassis for strength and durability. These high visibility, sunlight viewable, low profile LCD displays are available in 12', 15', 17' and 19' sizes, and provide unrivalled detail with high resolution graphics on the clear and easy-to-see screens.

New technology used by Raymarine means these screens are manufactured using glass bonded to the LCD to improve contrast, and which optimizes direct sunlight visibility even in tropical sunlight, minimises reflections and prevents condensation.

A night mode dims the screen to red to maintain night vision. Each display has nine direct access hot keys on the front enabling users to move quickly and easily between inputs and displays.

The G Series keyboard is used to control the GPM400 core processor module. Users can choose an optional wireless kit if preferred, (available end of 2007) and the easy-to-use keyboard is designed to interface with single or multiple G series displays. The alpha-numeric keypad has intuitive softkeys interfacing and is used to operate and control the autopilot, and data inputs from the modules.

As expected from a top of the range system, the G Series introduces new technology into many of the modules linked to the series. The HD Digital radar, for example, is perfect for the new G Series, delivering unmatched performance and ease-of-use. Maximising digital radar receiver performance, HD Digital Radar technology enables Raymarine radars to deliver target detection to rival much larger and more powerful radar systems.

The new HD Digital open array radar scanners also use advanced digital signal processing, which delivers double the performance and target recognition of conventional radars. Other new features include an adjustable beam width to less than one degree, adaptive auto-settings and multi-level colour target display.

In production tests, Raymarine’s 4kW HD Digital radar with a six foot antenna outperformed conventional 25kW radar with a nine foot antenna, while the technology improves target detection by virtually eliminating all noise.

Also part of the series is Raymarine’s patented DSM400 HD Digital Echo Sounder Module, available next season, which offers unrivalled clarity and detail below the waves, allowing users to see and target individual fish and observe the sea bed structure in detail unimaginable with traditional sounder technology.

Users selecting the G Series can choose multiple options based around the core system comprising the G Series marine display and GPM400 processor module. This package will link with all SeaTalk and SeaTalk2/NMEA2000 inputs, as well as Raymarine’s communication and safety products including AIS250 and LifeTag man overboard system. The G Series is available through Raymarine’s global network of dealers and distributors.
