Smartgyro and Simrad® partner to provide enhanced helming experience
Le Spezia-based Smartgyro has partnered with marine electronics specialist Simrad® to enable the integration of all data from its stabilizers with the latest Simrad® multifunction displays (MFDs).
Providing boaters with enhanced interactive capabilities at the helm station, the new Smartgyro stabilization interface on Simrad® displays allows the user to control and manage all the information and alarms on-board with a single, intuitive graphic display, projected on one or multiple MFDs.
The Smartgyro application is available on Simrad® NSSevo3S™, NSSevo3™, NSSevo2™, NSOevo3S™, NSOevo2™, and GO series displays, ensuring operational information from the SG series stabilizers can now be an integral feature of the Simrad® Command experience, an evolving system said to offer easy and effective management of on-board data.
Requiring only one interconnecting cable between the Smartgyro stabilizer and the multifunction display, the SG unit’s data is communicated to the Simrad® device via an HTML5 server (OPbox) through the ethernet network.
“For boaters who prefer to concentrate the information from different devices on a single MFD, or multiple MFDs networked together, we are pleased to announce the new partnership between Smartgyro and Simrad® to improve the management of on-board data and systems,” says Smartgyro Sales Manager, Carlo Gazerro. “With this development, the Smartgyro stabilizer becomes part of the on-board ecosystem of all boats that use Simrad® MFDs. Now it is possible to operate and monitor the boat’s stabilization directly using one or more MFDs without needing to use the dedicated Smartgyro display, with all functions now available on the Simrad® network.”
Smartgyro is backed by strategic partner YANMAR and its group companies, including Vetus, Maxwell and Flexofold.
