Electronics Leader Unveils New Multifunction Instrument for Coastal Cruising and Club Racing.

B&G – the world leader in marine instruments, autopilot systems and tactical software solutions for the sailing market – announced today its next-generation instrument and autopilot solution – the Triton. Sporting a striking mechanical design and employing the same innovative interface developed for its Zeus multifunction navigation system, the B&G Triton T41 is a single, fully customizable, “do-it-all” display that offers sailors quick access to critical wind, depth, speed and autopilot information. The optional Triton Autopilot Controller connects to the T41 and provides full autopilot integration. Easy to install as a standalone instrument or as part of an integrated system, Triton delivers low-power, high-quality, easy-to-use navigation capabilities at an attractive price.

Triton best-in-class operation and durability is designed specifically for coastal cruising and club racers. Featuring a 4.1-inch, quarter-VGA LED backlit display with 320 x 240-pixel resolution that is nearly 40-percent larger than competitive products, the instrument’s bonded-glass construction ensures zero condensation and provides excellent visibility in all weather and lighting conditions -- even at extreme viewing angles. Designed to match the B&G Zeus multifunction display, Triton’s simple-to-navigate menu structure is controlled by three elegant ‘up, down and enter’ buttons, and a dedicated ‘page’ key for toggling through instrument functions. Its Micro-C backbone offers dual male/female connectors that support both daisy chain and ‘T’ connection for easy installation in any vessel.

A complete autopilot solution, B&G Triton’s optional Pilot Controller seamlessly interfaces with the Triton T41 instrument to offer sailors convenient remote control of pilot steering functions. Featuring large clear keys, straightforward operation and backlighting for night use, the pilot control’s interface employs single-mode toggle and includes a simple ‘off’ key for returning the pilot to standby. The Triton controller is connected through a single Micro-C connection on the back of the device and sports a unique clip mount for easy installation. When integrated with the B&G Zeus navigation system, pilot information and control can be accessed and operated from either solution.

“B&G has redefined the way cruising sailors and club racers should think about electronics,” said Louis Chemi, COO, Navico Americas. “With Triton and Zeus features designed specifically for their boating needs, sailors no longer have to settle for systems designed for power boaters or chose systems designed for professional racers. In addition, Triton’s ease of integration will appeal to boaters and installing dealers alike.”

Supporting both Micro-C and Simnet backbones, the B&G Triton T41 interfaces with B&G and Simrad Yachting Wind, Speed, Depth and Heading Sensors, as well as data sources from other manufacturers. Measuring 4.6-inches (118 mm) in width and height by .65-inches (16 mm) in depth, the T41 requires .75-inches (20 mm) of depth behind the mounting plane. Designed for 12V DC environments, the T41 draws a scant power range of 50-150mA. The Triton Pilot Controller measures 2.3-inches (60 mm) in width by 4.5-inches (115 mm) in height by .65-inchs (16 mm) in depth, requires .55-inches (14 mm) of depth behind the mounting plane, and draws only 50mA of power. The Triton T41 Display and Pilot Controller both operate seamlessly within a temperature range of +5 to +131 degrees Fahrenheit (-15 to +55 degrees Celsius), are waterproof to the IPX7 standard, and protected by a two-year parts and labor warranty.

Price & Availability:

 

The new B&G Triton T41 instrument and optional Triton Pilot Remote have a suggested retail price of U.S. $599 and $299, respectively and will be available in January 2011 from authorized dealers and distributors throughout the United States and Canada.
