B&G H5000 Hydra Base Pack
Hydra CPU is the brains behind the ultimate cruiser/racer system. Its ultra-fast
ARM processors deliver data in an instant and the browser-based setup allows
straightforward and flexible configuration. Unique sailing features ensure the
H5000 remains ahead of the fleet.
The innovative B&G H5000 instrument
system is powered by a smart Central Processing Unit (CPU) with the ability to
run three levels of software, Hercules, Hydra and Performance. Hydra is designed
for sailors running a cruising, or dual-purpose cruising/racing, system and
provides the sophistication you need without over-complication.
system with an integral CPU has a wealth of advantages including web-browser
based setup via the new H5000 interface, for easy set-up, calibration,
commissioning, backup/restore and advanced diagnostics. It also expands the
system's communications capabilities, with dual NMEA 0183 ports with selectable
message configuration, Ethernet link to the webserver and other software apps.
Add a wireless router and you benefit from tablet/smartphone integration. A CPU
provides enhanced sensor support and specific sailing features like wind
correction for heel/trim angle and true wind correction - improving the data
displayed to the user and guiding the autopilot. It also simplifies seemingly
complex calibrations through AutoCal calibration routines.
Hydra CPU delivers enhanced HV display control, letting you oscillate the
displays between two variables, for more efficient display use, and provides
support for both expansion modules and many of B&G's existing sensors. In
addition, the CPU provides advanced MOB function with dedicated MOB button input
and dead reckoning of relative MOB position, allowing for tide, based on the
initial MOB position or as updated via AIS SART with compatible
