H3000 Central Processing Unit


 product shot

The H3000 CPU is the core of the system, taking the majority of sensor inputs and using a dedicated processor to rapidly calculate and calibrate further functions for distribution to display units and external devices.

  • A new enclosure enhances ease of installation with its plugged connection whilst the connectors are firmly retained by locking screws to ensure reliability in all conditions.
  • The CPU software is function upgradeable to allow the client to purchase  upgrades for additional functionality making the upgrade path straightforward.
  • Main Processor and Performance Processor are now available in one unit making it easier to install and simpler to service and upgrade.
  • The addition of a USB interface allows connection of a PC for either NMEA communications or the optional H-Linkô* communication protocol used by software packages such as Deckman.
