Kessler-Ellis Products (KEP) has launched a compact marine-grade keyboard designed for use with Furuno NavNet black box systems with Time Zero Software, including the Furuno MaxSea Time Zero and Nobeltec Time Zero software packages.

Available in two models for both horizontal and vertical mounting preferences, the Time Zero Keyboard provides direct access to the most used navigation features for simple command processing and the ultimate in convenient and efficient operation. 

The rugged KEP Marine Time Zero Keyboard features a click-to-select swivel-wheel for fast and seamless zooming and 3D function control. Convenient, dedicated function buttons include vessel centering; day/night modes that change chart presentation for day, dusk and night viewing; Man-Over-Board; zooming in and out on the chart; and dimmable eight-level backlighting.

The keyboard also includes four programmable function keys to allow user-customized operation. Virtually every feature of the MaxSea Time Zero software can be programmed for direct access from the quick keys. When the navigation system is paired with a sounder or MaxSea PC Radar, the user-specified buttons are easily adapted for quick and essential sounder and radar control and integration.

“KEP’s new Time Zero Keyboards make reliable operation of Furuno’s popular NavNet black box systems and MaxSea navigation software as well as Nobeltec Time Zero software easy and efficient,” said Keith Cariani, sales manager, KEP Marine. “Its direct keys for frequently used functions and safety features make navigation seamless, and dedicated programmable keys offer customizable control to meet every captains’ needs and preferences.”
