Vessel Monitoring & Control Black Box

Maretron's third generation Black Box (MBB300C) is a dedicated processing unit that includes Maretron's N2KView® vessel monitoring and control software. Unlike a PC that allows any software to be loaded, the MBB300C runs only N2KView® software making it extremely stable and dedicated to monitoring and controlling your vessel.

The MBB300C is ruggedized for marine use and includes a solid state disk drive to withstand the pounding associated with waves. And since the MBB300C dissipates less than 10W, there is no need for internal cooling fans that are noisy and wear out causing electronics to overheat and fail.

The MBB300C connects to a monitor through a VGA connector or an HDMI connector while the associated touch screen connects through a USB or serial port. Alternatives to controlling the N2KView® software through a touch screen include keyboards, mice, or track balls connected through USB. In addition to the two completely isolated CAN bus connectors for simple connection to single or redundant NMEA 2000® networks, the MBB300C has an Ethernet port for connecting Internet Protocol (IP) cameras for viewing video within the N2KView® software.

Of course you get the same flexibility using Maretron's N2KView® software from the MBB300C as you would running the software on a PC, which includes the ability to configure as many screens as you want with exactly the information you want to see. Plus you get free upgrades to the software as improvements and new features are added.

Features:
  • 9-36 Volt Power Supply
  • Solid State Disk Drive
  • Fanless Cooling System
  • Dual CAN Bus for Single or Redundant NMEA 2000® Network Connections
  • Four USB Ports for Touchscreen, Keyboard, Mouse, Trackball, or Thumb Drive Connections

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
