For25 years NKE has been developing innovative intrument systems decided to navigation and performance. Whatever your program, should it be racing or cruising, solo or crewed, NKE instruments are designed to answer all your needs at every level. Performance, accuracy and simple, intuitive operation are always kept in mind by NKE's mind by their development team to achieve the best information and performance. NKE is the best choice you can make to give your boat a smart, advanced and upgradable system. The most prestiqious victories of the season have proved NKE's pedigree. A big thank you to all who participated in this succes.
NKE Multigraphic Display
The large 5.7" and 256 000 colours screen of the graphic multifunction display providesaccess to all available data. Its glass-bonded technology features a wide viewing angle greater than 160 degree even in bright sunlight. All the system's and pilot's configuration parameters can be controlled. It displays the history graphs of wind, barometric pressure, temperature and more. The graphs provide a very valuable pressentation to help performance analysis and decision making. Fully configurable, it allows the user to choose the important data required through 10 user's pages. It's graphic abilitycan simulate an indicator.
NKE Regatta Processor
Ture wind like you've never seen it! Combined with high resolution sensors, the processor acquires wind data at 25Hz. It's powerful capacity allows the measured wind data to be corrected using information from the boat's motion and speed acceleration to achieve a true wind reading that offer unique accuracy. Fully configurable it requires a fine calibration made with care. When run properly, this will answer the expectations of the most demanding tacticians.
NKE Race Pack
Get the performance level required for racing at an affordable price. This means an autopilot that steers in true wind mode to follow wind shifts and reach as much as possible 100% performance.
For course streering the Regata Compass is stabilised in 3 axis and provides heading, heel and pitch data adjusted from the boats' acceleration.
The heading can be used instantly by the Gyropilot. The pilot gives better performance with no damping so once the auto botton is pressed the data will not be filtered as it is with a conventional Fluxgate.
For the wind sensor, NKE recomend placing the mast head unit way above the main sail head, particularly if it is a square head sail. The Carbowind places the sensor 1.10 m above the mast head. The design of this sensor makes it the most responsive on the market. For boat speed NKE recommnd the Ultrasonic sensor. It installs flush and its measuremant is linear from 0 to 50 knots. With an update rate of 10 Hz (10 per second), the GPS HF offers an alternative boat peed input the caculation of ture wind. This is a new way of feeding the autopilot with a wind mode. With some particular conditions of wind generated waves it avoids their influence and theconsequence on the true wind processing, therefore, the boats heading.
Race Pack Performance
This pack includes the high resolution sensors. They provide the accuracy and
response required for a performance autopilot.
In the 1980's the available pleasure sailing instruments were analogic, every sensor using a pointer-display. NoÃ«l Kerebel, a sailing professional at that time, used his knowledge of electronics to imagine and design a microprocessor system. This microprocessor controls and displays wind, speed, depth and course. This first pleasure sailing electronical system was born in 1984. In 1986 he creates nkeÂ and thus begins 25 years of passion and innovation. In 1992 the Topline range is born, and in 1995 the Gyropilot. Since then nkeÂ has been designing and developing so as to improve the systems performance with only one targetÂ : innovations reliability.
