Digital Yacht ZDIGWL510 WIFI Extender for Boatranet
The new WL510 allows boat owners to extend the range of their Boatranet System to wi-fi hot spots so that their on board internet devices or equipment can connect to the internet. With internet connectivity on board you can download the latest weather or chart updates as well as having a mobile office on board. Most harbours and ports have either free or subscription based services available
The system has a compact, DC powered below deck mounted 1W booster/modem and external, hi-gain (12dBm) antenna with 10m (33ft) low loss LMR400 coax interconnect cable. The antenna measures 0.9m (2.95ft) and can be supplied with desk, mast and industry standard 1" x 14 TPI mountings.
Even though your system already has wi-fi access, you can take advantage of the superior range (and speed) that this system will offer.
Wi-Fi range depends on many local factors but Digital Yacht have seen ranges of up to 4-6 miles with this low cost system. In general, using an internal wi-Fi adaptor on Boatranet, you?ll have similar range to a normal PC. So if you plan to access the internet whilst on board the WL510 could be the solution for you.
