Cyclops Marine has chosen Technical Marine Supplies as its UK distributor.

Cyclops Marine offers two different options of wireless sensor technology, with different sized models in each range, designed specifically for the harsh marine environment.

“TMS are at the forefront of offering technical advice and support to their customers, and this applies even more so when skippers are investing in racing technology,” explained TMS sales manager Nick Cook.

“Being able to retrofit the Cyclops Marine smarttune and smartlink sensors dockside opens up a world of possibilities to those looking to make repeatable desired headsail shapes, regardless of vessel size.”

Wireless

Cyclops Marine produces the smarttune Rigging Link and the Titanium smartlink for textile rigging applications. Both are IP rated, wireless and use free app-based software.

smarttune enables live measurement of forestay load and is simple for crews to retro-fit to yachts of any size. The fittings comprise wireless screw-in replacements for existing turn screws and the receiver plugs directly into the existing instrument package.

smartlinks are titanium sheet load sensors which wirelessly transmit the load on any soft line giving a quick, optimised and repeatable sail setting. With a battery life of 200 hours, the sensors come in three sizes – two, five and ten tonnes. Cyclops Marine also offers an NMEA2000 gateway, allowing full integration into existing electronic systems.

Combining Bluetooth technology and sensor expertise from their Cambridge design office together with a cutting-edge manufacturing hub allows Cyclops Marine to supply a truly innovative product.


The INEOS TEAM UK AC75 is a 75-foot foiling monohull built and equipped with some of the best of British technology. While the Cyclops Marine products used on the boat are confidential, Cyclops are excited to announce the launch of two new product lines available to all sailors that deliver on-board, real time dynamic load measuring. You too can get ahead of the competition by using either smartlink or smarttune wireless load sensors on your yacht.
