Marine Electronics

Marine electronics including GPS/chart plotter multifunction displays, autopilot control, radar, depth sounders/fishfinders, transducers, boat instruments, data monitoring, NMEA-2000 networking and entertainment systems.

Autopilots

Autopilots

An autopilot controls the steering of the vessel in order to keep the vessel on a selected compass heading or a course to a waypoint that was created on a chart plotter.

Instruments

Instruments

Dedicated instrument displays show specific vessel data at a glance. They are commonly found in both sail and power boat applications.

VHF Communications

VHF Communications

Radio communications comprising VHF and HF frequencies still play a major factor in vessel communications however internet access is becoming increasingly important.

SHOW MORE

Radars

Radars

Radar antennas transmit, receive and process radar signals to detect objects such as land mass and other vessels. A multifunction display is used to display the result.

Multifunction Displays

Multifunction Displays

Multifunction displays combine a GPS receiver and a display for multiple applications including chart plotting, radar, sonar/fish-finder and instrument functions.

Cameras

Cameras

Video cameras can provide views that are not accessable from the helm position. Infrared cameras display images that highlight temperature gradients.

AIS

AIS

Automatic Identification System enables exchange of navigation status between vessels and traffic monitoring centres.

  • Class A & B, receivers or transceivers
  • SeaTalk ng / NMEA 0183 connection

Networking

Networking

Just like computer networks, marine electronics devices use networks (using special cable and connectors) to share and communicate information.

SHOW MORE

Electronic Charts

Electronic Charts

Electronic charts store cartography information on a memory card that plugs into a multifunction display so that the chart can be displayed.

SHOW MORE

Transducers

Transducers

Transducers convert physical values such as tank levels and AC current to electrical signals compatible to the DCM inputs so that the values are availble to NXT logic and NMEA-2000.

Maretron Vessel Monitoring

Maretron Vessel Monitoring

NMEA 2000 converters for engine, tank level and power data.

  • J1989/analog engine converters
  • tank level and pressure
  • AC and DC power

The Right Products at a Competitive Price

Our approach to on-board electronics is very straight forward - we strive to supply the right product at a competitive price to do the job at hand. This means that we are not about to recommend or sell a "cheap" product on price or an "over the top" product if it's not required. Outback Marine is a full service dealer for the following brands.

Systems are developed with a full understanding of what is required and most importantly the installation is documented for future reference. In most cases, as a full service dealer, a system installed by Outback Marine carries a manufacturers in vessel warranty.

The in-house dash panel capability gives Outback Marine an edge when it comes to the supply of systems for both new and refurbishment projects. A new dash panel in conjunction with an electronics refurbishment adds particular value to the vessel. Manufacturers of new vessels benefit from the full service capability to supply electronics and dash panels.

Whether you're fitting out a 20 ft plate fishing boat or a 100 ft commercial survey vessel, Outback Marine has the marine electronics equipment you need: single screen solution or networked systems with the performance and ease of use that you would expect. Outback Marine offers a full service facility for marine electronics including design schematics of installed systems. As an authorised service dealer for Raymarine you can rely on Australia wide support for all installed systems including in vessel warranty.

When purchasing a new chart plotter, fish finder, radar, autopilot, marine gps or VHF radio, give some thought as to how the new product will fit into the existing dash or helm panel. Most likely the holes just don't line up. Outback Marine is Australias only specialist designer and manufaturer of new helm and dash panels. We can design and manufacture panels for all brand boats including Maritimo, Riviera, Mustang and Sunrunner. Examples of our work can be viewed at Panelec Marine Dash, Helm and Electrical Panels.

Just about all of the gear available today is great quality - a reliable installation comes down to how it's installed. This is where Outback Marine's experience in marine electrical and electronics engineering really shows. And if you do choose to do a self installation our backup support is there when you need it.
