Sperry Marine To Distribute Northstar Computerized Loran-C Navigators
Sperry Marine Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers and distributors of marine electronics, has agreed to distribute the "Northstar 800" Series of Computerized Loran-C Navigators manufactured by Digital Marine Electronics Corp.
of Acton, Mass. The announcement was made recently by John V. De- Maso, Sperry Marine vice president for commercial marketing.
"We are pleased to be able to offer these outstanding Loran-C navigators directly to our customers," Mr. DeMaso said, "especially our yacht and fishing boat customers.
The Northstar computerized Loran-C navigators, recognized by mariners as the industry standard, have proved to be the most accurate, user-friendly Loran-C navigators on the market. We are particularly impressed by the Northstar 800's superior accuracy in Lat/Long by automatically correcting ASF and, with its dynamic range of more than one trillion to one, reading signals where other Loran-C units can't." Mr. DeMaso, in his announcement, noted that the Northstar 800 Loran Navigator includes over 20 direct-to-device interfaces, 40 + navigation features and 120 possible waypoints. The unit is self-contained, splash-proof, and encased in a rugged aluminum housing that is "angled" to permit overhead, horizontal or vertical mounting. The Northstar 800X Loran Navigator can run one or two waterproof control heads in parallel operation.
In his acknowledgment of the new distribution agreement, Charles Malaquias, president of Digital Marine, said, "I am confident that Digital Marine's reputation for quality, combined with Sperry's well-organized network of worldwide dealers, will result in a very effective and exciting distribution team for out line of dependable Northstar navigators." Sperry Marine Inc., headquartered in Charlottesville, Va., has over 200 sales and service offices worldwide.
