Icom Showcases New Innovative Marine Communication Products at the Powerboat & RIB Show 2012

Icom will be displaying its latest range of marine communication products at the Powerboat & RIB Show 2012, the show formerly known at RIBEX. On show will be Icom’s new range of marine VHF radios including the IC-M91D, Icom’s first GPS Marine VHF/DSC Handheld and IC-M423 Compact Fixed Mount VHF/DSC. Both models share a new common user interface and noise cancelling technology that are unequalled in VHF models today. Also being showcased for the first time is Icom’s new Marine Commander Navigation System.

New to the Powerboat & RIB Show will be Icom's line of intuitive menu-driven radios with advanced features such as active noise cancelling, Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and global positioning system (GPS). Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK, said, ‘We are confident that our end users will appreciate the DSC features our radios offer and how easy they are to use.’

Icom's latest marine line integrates an intuitive “soft-key” interface permitting faster access to radio functions. Other practical features include enhanced audio quality and GPS functionality. Safety elements are built-in, such as DSC which allows users to send an emergency message at the touch of a button. Icom's newest marine radios receive an IPX7 Submersible rating allowing water immersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 metre.

Also on show will be the Icom Marine Commander Navigation System. The system integrates AIS data from a compatible transponder or receiver, radar information and displays data from a sounder/fish finder. In addition, it also has the capacity to display real-time fuel consumption, engine speed, depth and temperature, and has provisions for four on-board cameras to be connected (via RCA connectors). Up to two 12.1 inch TFT displays can be connected to the Marine Commander’s main processor.

The Powerboat & RIB Show is being held at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth between 11th and 13th of May 2012. The show is a free event for all the family and will showcase some of the most exciting RIBs and powerboats on the water today.
