Marine Satellite TV Antenna Systems

KVH has introduced a new TV antenna series designed to support a variety of digital TV and movie channel providers. The web-based user interface allows easy access from any smartphone, tablet, smart TV, computer, or Wi-Fi enabled device.

New Super Bright LED Floodlight

Hella marine's new XLR Floodlight combines ultra-durable materials with sophisticated electronics for spectacular light performance. The brightest Sea Hawk to date, the XLR generates 1,300 lumens of crisp, white illumination, while consuming only 18 watts of power or 1.5A/12V.

Its corrosion-proof housing is injection-molded from thermally conductive ceramic polymer. This material draws heat away from internal electronics. The Grilamid lens delivers strength and durability.

Spread lamps brighten a wide, close-range spread over a cockpit, foredeck or working area. Spot lamps provide a narrower, more concentrated illumination for tuna towers, yacht masts or forward-facing lighting for a variety of uses.

The Sea Hawk XLR is sealed, pre-wired with marine tinned cable, features 316 stainless steel hardware, and carries the Hella marine five-year LED warranty. The Sea Hawk XLR measures 6.69 inches by 2.68 inches.

Hella marine's new Sea Hawk XLR Floodlight is priced around $350.

Anchor Designed With No Roll Bar

A new anchor design from Rocna Anchors offers the greatest possible compatibility across a wide range of vessel bow configurations, particularly powerboats with an enclosed bow roller assembly.

Some boat owners have difficulties accommodating the roll-bar that is fundamental to its design on their bow. The new anchor is an alternative for these boaters, since the omission of a roll-bar combined with a carefully designed shank profile ensures a snug fit on the bows of a range of vessels. Platforms, bowsprits and other protrusions are easily cleared. The shank shape encourages self-launching and smooth retrieval.

The new anchor design features a combination of shank and fluke geometry, which in conjunction with a roll-palm at the rear of the fluke, self-rights the anchor on the seabed.

Shank strength is heightened by a unique I+V profile design. This innovation improves setting performance, with the lower V edge cutting into the seabed.
