We have introduced two new products since the last Quick Reference chart was posted – QK-A031 Multiplexer, which has proved very popular and the newly released QK-A027 SeaTalk Converting AIS Receiver with GPS and WiFi.
Release date 31st October
Planned for release on October 31st, a new addition to the Marine Electronics Family.
A multi-functional little AIS engine it’s frankly, a game changer. It sits at the heart and hub of the whole navigation system as a single-unit powerhouse.
Building on the success of the previous models our new AIS Receiver adds SeaTalk capability to the already impressive suite of input options on the QK-A026 and is powered from the SeaTalk interface to provide a cleaner signal which will improve range and sensitivity.
Another innovation is simultaneous WiFi, NMEA and USB output. Considerably improving on versatility and flexibility.
The integral WiFi can connect up to seven devices and in response to customer feedback the GPS is now optional.
All this functionality comes in our trademark compact aluminium enclosure with the usual 1 year guarantee and is available exclusively to our Distributors at the same ridiculously low price as the QK-A026 until Jan 2018.
Full specification and instruction documents are on the website now and for further information please email me, email@example.com.
Available until 1st Jan 2018 exclusively to Distributors
* SeaTalkTM is the proprietary protocol used by Raymarine Marine Electronics
A question we get asked a lot! There are an ever increasing number of Apps out there now, some good, some….less so. We could go out and test every single one, but then we wouldn’t have time to do the R&D which drives our products forward. We love the R&D part of our job, so we’ve put together a shortlist of applications which we know work and that cover most of the OS requirements out there. As you probably know by now, we like to encourage feedback and we love that our customers like to help each other out once in a while, so if you are using an app that isn’t listed here and you think it’s good, please give it a quick write up in the comments section. Or drop me an email and point me in the right direction!
Erratum: OpenCPN does NOT have an iOS version.
Another easy comparison chart, this time for WiFi remote controllers.
You can see it here:
The QK-G025 module is an industrial grade product which is designed to provide remote control of pumps, valves and pipelines. As it can work in two modes, Dead Man and Timed Pulse, it can be used for a wide variety of remote applications. The two alarm inputs provide another mechanism for automatic remote monitoring and can act as either switches or input sources, ensuring your liquid/gas transit or storage system is entirely controllable from wherever the operator needs to be. The inputs can be from a wide variety of sensors, e.g. photocell receivers, CO2 monitors, leak detectors etc.
As you can set the QK-G025 up without a PC, it is easy to install in remote locations, you just need a power supply, a registered SIM and a phone signal. Access can be granted to up to four numbers, and incoming calls from any other number will be disregarded so your controller is secure from outside interference. In addition to controlling your system automatically or remotely, it can be interrogated by SMS for status updates. As the unit works on number recognition, the call is never answered thus the system is Toll free in use.
This new video gives a guided tour of the Quark-elec QK-W016 Remote Control Temperature Data Logger and runs through resetting the module and setting up in Station Mode. The new video goes through the processes step-by-step and includes a software view with a hardware view so that you can see exactly how the unit responds to setting up and use. For those that are interested, the music is Orlando Gibbon’s Fantasia and is played by Jon Sayles.
