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.”
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.
