Hercules processor delivers advanced true wind calculations, motion correction, advanced heel settings, and boat speed calibration.
Both cruising and racing sailors will be interested in B&G’s new Hercules sailing processor, which earned a top new products award at the 2023 Newport International Boat Show in Rhode Island.
The B&G Hercules sailing performance processor delivers data in an instant with enhanced settings and maximized connectivity and compatibility, according to the company. With “ultra-fast” quad-core processor and multiple integration options, the new processor delivers more accurate sailing data sets, including advanced true wind calculations, motion correction and calibration, advanced heel and correction settings, boat speed calibration, and advanced Starline calculations, along with Polar Tables for performance data.
Hercules is compatible with existing Triton 2, H5000, Nemesis, and HV displays, as well as Vulcan and Zeus chartplotters, and can be expanded to accommodate additional inputs with the new Hercules Expansion Module.
“The Hercules processor offers greater compatibility across our suite of sailing electronics and enhances the sailing experience for advanced cruising and racing sailors alike,” explains Kevin Steinbraker, VP and general manager, Digital Systems of Navico Group.
