Offshore Systems Fuel Gauge

Offshore Systems’ nifty fuel gauge is built into a stainless steel deck fitting, right where you want it. One version, costing $349, can be used with existing analog tank-level senders and gauges; another $271 model just plugs into a boat’s NMEA 2000 network. If you go the latter route, you could also use Offshore’s $263 N2K senders, which claim two-percent

Parker Fuel-Tank Selector Valve

Yet another big-time industrial manufacturer reaches up into the electronic helm. Parker’s Fluid Control Division developed this solenoid drive selector valve so that a skipper can change tanks without leaving the helm. In fact, the first customer, Hinckley, set it up to switch tanks automatically based on fuel levels. That six-port model you see is able to

BilgeWatch 8

The trouble with automatic bilge pumps is that they can hide a slowly building leak. The BilgeWatch 8 takes care of that issue, monitoring one to eight pumps simultaneously, showing you when they come on, recording their history, and delivering alerts and alarms based on your settings. The latter can trigger indicator lights, buzzers, relays, and/or auto

Argonaut Tflex-G615

Argonaut has broken a significant price barrier with the $995 waterproof and sunlight-viewable Tflex-G615 monitor. Its claim of an enormous 2,000-nit illumination equivalence may be exaggerated (the transflective technology used along with some standard backlighting is not really measurable), and in fact the G615 is not quite as bright as the same-size and

Raymarine LifeTag MOB System

Unlike some safety gear, you'll never have to worry if LifeTag is going to work when you need it. That's because it's what might be called an "alarm-on-failure" system; the receiver triggers an alarm whenever one of the constantly transmitting pendants goes out of its 30-foot range (overboard!), if it breaks or loses battery power, or when a wearer pushes his or

Hatteland Series 2

Hatteland Display, a large Norwegian manufacturer with an excellent behind-the-scenes reputation, is going public with its new Series 2 Marine Multi Displays (MMD) and Marine Multi Computers (MMC). The interesting idea here is that interchangeable "backpacks" make identical slim-line screens into either conventional multi-input monitors or compact all-in-one

Krill Monitoring System

The goal of Krill Systems is to make the elegant and informative monitoring we often see on megayachts possible on the boats most of us cruise in. The solution is a flexible system that employs two types of Sensor Pods—one for all things electrical (shown at right), the other for tanks and switches—and an efficient program called SoftDisplay (shown below). The

VEI DM Series Monitors

VEI’s new DM series monitors show how an assortment of seemingly minor developments can add up to what may well be a breakthrough product line. The visible bezel, for instance, is strictly cosmetic and easily removed, meaning that VEI can stock it in numerous colors, wood grains, and carbonfiber styles. That also means that the real bezel underneath is

Airmar PC WeatherStation

It’s astounding how many sensors are packed into that 23/4-inch-diameter housing: ultrasonic wind, GPS, compass, accelerometer (pitch and roll), thermometer, barometer, and humidity. That means, among other things, that Airmar’s WeatherStation can separate apparent wind activity from boat motion and, thus, deliver true wind speed and direction to most any

Maretron Weather Station

Maretron’s $699 Weather Station is as ambitious as Airmar’s but itself only senses wind—again ultrasonically, which means both accurately and without moving parts—plus temperature, pressure, and humidity. That’s because it uses the NMEA 2000 protocol, which is far better than 0183 at combining and distributing data. Hence a 2000-compliant display
