RMX4808 RailMount Pre-Cut for Simrad NSS8/B&G Zeus T8

RailMount NavPods are best used for mounting of an autopilot control, sailing instrument, or small chartplotter onto an existing pedestal guard. Fits onto any 1" or 1.25" diameter tube. A Chromed Stainless Steel arm is used to mount a NavPod. The NavPod can rotate 180 degrees for easy viewing while sitting under the dodger on a rainy day. All wire run from the NavPod, down the center of the stainless steel arm, and into the pedestal guard. This application provides a clean and sturdy installation for electronics, without replacement of the pedestal guard.

All RailMount NavPods Include:
  • Acrylic capped ABS plastic
  • Chromed stainless steel tamper-proof fasteners
  • Double Seal for watertight integrity
  • Models are available pre-cut for popular electronics.
  • Chromed stainless steel arm with swivel mount
  • Two sets of adaptors included for 1" or 1.25" diameter tubing


The Hi-Gloss Material
  • NavPods are manufactured with a custom co-extruded acrylic capped
    ABS material. We use the absolute best UV resistant material that provides a
    very high gloss white finish that matches gel-coated fiberglass. The Gen3
    enhancements now include a thicker gauge material that improves strength and
    1provides for better structural rigidity.

The Waterproof Seal
  • All NavPods are manufactured with a double gasket system providing
    an excellent watertight seal between the front and back of the NavPod for
    protection of your Marine Electronics. NavPods are made to withstand the
    harshest of wet offshore boating conditions. Gen3 enhancements include a
    thicker external silicone gasket with improved flush fit. The internal EPDM
    gasket is now 50% thicker and is not subject to "compression set" like many
    rubber compounds. This is important when you need to open the NavPod in the
    future to service your electronics.

The Nickel Chrome Plated Screws
  • We use all stainless steel mounting hardware that is supplied with
    each NavPod. Large round head tamperproof screws have deeper sockets for the
    NavPod wrench for better holding ability when tightening than the previous
    screws. For Gen3 we provide nickel chrome-plated stainless steel tamperproof
    screws for security combined with a little bling!

The Manufacturing Process
  • Heavy-gauge thermoforming is considered an art since many processes
    come into play. It all starts with the design and development of the
    tooling. We are fortunate to have experienced in-house design engineers who
    utilize CAD programs like Solidworks, Catia and AutoCad. Surfcam is used to
    interface with our CNC machining centers to produce quality tools with
    precision tolerances. We have re-designed and re-tooled all of the popular
    NavPods. We have reviewed all of the former products and selected the best
    design elements of each and incorporated them in every new Gen3
    product.

Our Commitment to Quality
  • We are committed to producing the best possible waterproof housing
    for Marine Electronics. Now with two decades of experience under our belt,
    we are confident you will have years of trouble free service and a long
    lasting high gloss finish. We will stand behind our commitment by now
    offering a 10-year warranty on all new Gen3 NavPods.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
