The «OFF» Versions are full versions of ADRENA, but are not connected up to navigation instruments.
Aimed in particular at sailmakers, shore-based routers, coaches and boats that are not allowed onboard instrumentation (eg. 6.50 minis, Olympic classes …), these versions are scalable: they can be upgraded at any time to the full, connected versions of ADRENA at a later date.
The Mini Logger is a true «black box» for a boat without on-board instruments such as the Mini 6.50 or Olympic classes. It can be connected up to different parts of the boat via a NMEA output and will save a lot of navigation data (windspeed and wind angle, boat speed, heading …) which can be recorded and saved to a PC loaded with ADRENA software. It comes supplied with the ‘OFF’ version of our navigation software.
The « plus » Mini Logger
The fundamental difference between this Mini Logger and others on the market is that this one can be coupled to our software. This makes it possible to analyse the data in a way that just has been possible before.
Using the Mini Logger
When you have finished sailing, remove the SD card (2GB memory) of the Mini Logger which contains all the data and place it in the computer. The data recorded in the «black box» is imported and then loaded into Adrena or Optima. With Adrena Mini Logger, users will be able to create and manage their speed polars. Using Mini Offshore Adrena makes it possible to review in detail and debrief from a day of training or racing by analysing all phases of the sailing session (starting, lay lines, boat speed, wind shifts, and so on…).
- 2 isolated NMEA inputs with automatic speed selection 4800/38400.
- An event input.
- A separate engine tachometer input
- Recording on 2GB SD card in text format
- Supply 10-18V
- Consumption <50mA.
Adrena Standard OFF Version
It records data and calculates the speed polars, whilst discarding unreliable values and filtering any anomalies that might skew the quality data. This creates a performance curve for the boat which is proven and reliable.
During the trip preparation, the navigator locates and annotates specific areas on the map thanks to the roadbook: tidal eddies, coastal effects… those areas can be enriched with images like synoptic winds or currents by overlaying them on the chart.
Replay, debriefing tool
It is possible to replay a race in order to analyze the different phases, your tactical and strategic decisions as well as changes in weather conditions. All information (unit and GPS) and all calculations made by Adrena software are available.
The route is calculated from the chosen parameters (start, finish, polars, wind, current and hazards) while automatically avoiding coastlines.
Thanks to the scanning of variables (wind, polar, GRIB shift or departure), it is possible to launch several successive routings. It enables to check the influence of the variable and the reliability of the route plan.
They allow to visualize the sensitivity of the ETA according to a route shift and also to plot the competitors’ time to arrival. Parallel inverse isochrones will indicate that a smooth heading modification will not influence the route duration.
They compare isochrones and inverse isochrones to color a corridor that enables to get to destination with a minimum delay regarding the optimal route. This delay can be set.
