Denmead Monday 5th March 2012. Effective from March 1st, Sailmon GmbH announced that Eurotask Ltd will be their distributor for the complete range of Sailmon products in the UK.
â€œStrategically, the UK is an important market for us, and so the appointment of Eurotask is a significant step in our development plans and we are looking forward to working with Eurotask and Mark Luffingham to help achieve our goals over the coming months and years,â€ commented Gernot Turner, CEO of Sailmon GmbH. â€œOur products are well proven and we have great feedback from many owners and captains of the high profile yachts using Sailmon products today. We are now ready to expand our market and the appointment of Eurotask is the first of a number of new distributors that will be announced soon.â€
The Sailmon range of products includes:
The IP67, bright sunlight readable Sailmon MM104 mast or cockpit mounted instruments with the capability to display characters up to 140mm high in colour and viewable from most angles on board. All monitors are WiFi enabled and have Sailmonâ€™s advanced calibration system installed, capable of calculating all 3D interpolators with an incredibly fast update rate of 100Hz.
The SBox WiFi wireless data transfer unit. Supplied in a small carbon fibre box it supports all common interfaces for connecting standard sensors used on high performance sailing yachts. Standard interfaces include NMEA2000 for SimNet and SeaTalk NG, 2x NMEA0183 inputs, Raymarine SeaTalk, B&G H2000 and H3000. Any NMEA2000 compatible instrument bus can directly be connected to the SBox, including Furuno, Garmin. So, whilst all sensor connections are wired for reliability, all data is sent over wireless LAN to the mast readouts where the data is processed. This allows very easy installation while maintaining extraordinary high bandwidth. In addition to the standard unit, the Sailmon SBox WiFi+ unit is designed be used as a high performance marine grade WiFi access point for multi-channel live video streaming on your yacht.
â€œI have been watching the development of Sailmon in Europe for a couple of years and I am excited about this new appointment as I believe the Racing Sailboat market in the UK is crying out for the type of innovative, robust, stylish and thoughtfully designed products Sailmon bring to the market,â€ said Mark Luffingham, MD of Eurotask. â€œSailmon is a new name here and new names take time to introduce to a market but I am confident that the quality and capability of Sailmonâ€™s products will do the talking for us. We really look forward to working with Sailmon and to developing their brand in the UK over the coming years.â€
In addition to the hardware, Sailmonâ€™s suite of software includes their unique 3D calibration package which provides very precise calibration values even with only a few calibration points. Sailmon MM104 monitors are capable of calculating all 3D interpolators with an extraordinary high update rate of 100Hz. PC software tools are provide to support user input and pre-race calibration can be done remotely. The Sailmon Race Software, which is also installed on every MM104 mast monitor, offers a huge number of polar functions. Polar sets can be switched during the race, allowing the best polar set for your actual sails and setup. Direct import of most common polar file formats is supported.
