The Server is the heart of all systems. It's here that the information from the transducer is collected; stored and all complex navigation functions are performed.

While the Server is a marvel in miniature it is also an intelligent connection box where all the transducers and instruments are connected. With it, you can connect other compatible units, regardless of make, via the TWO NMEA ports.

NXR Steer Pilot
Part No. 20620063
NXR Steer Pilot

The steer pilot is a highly innovative instrument that has proven its value out on the racecourse many times since it was first introduced as part of the NX2 system in 2005. Put in simple terms, this invaluable instrument continuously displays to the helmsman the direction in which he should be steering in order to reach a given point in the fastest and most efficient way. It does this by combining data from the compass, speed transducer and GPS and when required analyses it against a boat's technical specification, most commonly the polars, to determine the best route. When the helmsman deviates from that route the needle instantly moves away from the centre line, indicating in the clearest way possible the direction and extent of that deviation. The system updates five times per second, ensuring that there is no time lag between the error occurring and the information being transmitted to the helmsman. Using the NXR steer pilot quickly becomes second nature to the helmsman, and will hold his concentration for extended periods without becoming tiring or straining his vision. Meanwhile the navigator can update the parameters at the navigation workstation at any time and the new optimum course will instantly be indicated on the instrument without any need for the verbal transmission of complex instructions. As well as indicating the fastest point of sailing, the steer pilot can also be programmed to indicate:

  • Deviation from a compass course
  • Deviation from a pre determined apparent wind angle
  • Course to waypoint, with or without compensation for drift

Features:

  • Deviation from a compass course
  • Deviation from a pre determined apparent wind angle
  • Course to waypoint, with or without compensation for drift
  • Indicates the fastest point of sailing
  • Deviation from Optimum Course (from Polar tables)

NX2 GPS Navigator
Part No. 20620046

NX2 GPS Navigator

The GPS Navigator is one of the most versatile navigators on the market. Capable of storing up to 399 waypoints and 25 routes, it can be used either as a standalone unit or integrated into the NEXUS Network. The instrument and antenna are also available seperately. An important feature is the ability of the NEXUS GPS Navigator to communicate with other navigators via its NMEA input/output, allowing it to be used either as a repeater navigator or as a navigator in a system with other NMEA compatible Loran/Decca GPS navigators. The GPS Navigator is simple to use and can be installed above and/or below deck.

Two unique features of this instrument:

  1. You may use two or more instruments in a Network with a common waypoint bank, which allows you to create, edit or select waypoints at any location.
  2. Unique integration with digital NMEA chart plotters. The GPS Navigator is able to provide the plotter with information of position, COG, SOG etc. and may still be able to repeat navigational data (BTW, DTW, XTE etc.) calculated by the NMEA plotter (the WP bank in the NMEA plotter is used).
Stand Alone NX Wind System
Part No. 10620021
Wind Instrument

Wind Instrument

The NX Wind Instrument brings a new layer of functionality to the NX instrumentation system, allowing both the digital and analog display of wind data on a single unit. In large, clear digits the Wind Instrument displays apparent wind speed and angle, and true wind speed and angle as calculated by the WSI, while at the same time showing the same information in analog format for instant appraisal by helmsman and navigator. Stylishly designed and built to withstand the toughest marine environments, the Wind Instrument enables the Nexus NX to demonstrate its full potential as a versatile capable instrumentation system.

WSI Connection Box

WSI Connection Box

The Wireless Server Interface (WSI) Connection Box forms the core of the NX instrumentation system; the central point at which all the data collected from the transducers is processed and then sent down a single cable to the Sea Data and, if installed, Wind Instrument displays. Among its many functions, the WSI combines boat speed and apparent wind speed & angle, to calculate the true wind speed & angle. The WSI communicates directly with the wireless Wind Transducer via a unique radio pairing, and the slim and compact box is quick and simple to install.

Wireless Wind Transducer

Wireless Wind Transducer

The twin-fin wireless wind transducer brings all the advantages of wireless instrumentation to the cruising sailor. Gone are the complications and aesthetic issues of running wiring from the top of the mast down to the chart table. Instead, the wind transducer establishes a unique pairing using radio with the WSI connection box that forms the core of the NX instrumentation system, ensuring that each transducer / server pairing is distinct from every other. The information is then fed from the WSI connection box to both the NX Sea Data and Wind Instrument.

The twin fin design makes this a highly stable and accurate wind transducer. The internal batteries are continuously charged by a small solar panel mounted on the transducer arm, have a life of around three to four years, and are easily replaced.
