CZone intelligent technology provides a boating experience that incorporates full vessel integration and automation with the boater’s chartplotter. With the ability to monitor and control multiple functions, the user gains a whole new level of digital control over the boat while at the helm.
“Today, with recreational time being limited, boaters and their families do not want to worry about the operation of the boat,” said G.R. Schrotenboer, Mastervolt Global Business Leader. “They want to turn the key or touch a button and go have fun on the water. Our CZone technology offers the kind of intuitive operation that is common in one’s home or car, providing complete control of the vessel’s environment with a single touch.”
A pivotal function that is offered by CZone intelligent technology is mode control. With mode control, circuits such as lighting, power monitoring, tank monitoring and more are bundled to simplify the operation of the vessel and improve safety by making the correct decisions at the appropriate time, whether via touchscreen, tablet or key fob. A mode bar displaying these configurations allows for quick access and can be displayed at the top or bottom of the chartplotter screen. This accessibility allows for ease of visibility and control over the most important functions of the boat.
