The long range Wifi access system from Digital Yacht allows users to connect to Wi-Fi hot from on board PC’s. Download the latest weather or chart updates or convert your on board PC into a mobile office. Many harbours and ports have either free or subscription based services available.
The new WL510 uses a two part solution for maximum range and without the 5 metre pc to antenna wiring limitation on USB models (extendable to 10 metres on the WL410).
The system has a compact, DC powered below deck mounted 600mW booster/modem and external, hi-gain (12dBm) antenna with 10m (33ft) low loss LMR400 coax interconnect cable. The antenna measures 0.9m (2.95ft) with an industry standard 1” x 14TPI female thread for standard antenna / GPS mounts (desktop mount also available). The WL510 modem connects to an on board PC through a regular RJ45 CAT5 network cable for simple driver free installation.
Connect the WL510 to a router and everyone on board can share the long range wireless internet connection.
Compatible with all popular operating systems; Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X 10.3 (and higher) and LINUX, the WL510 supports 802.11b/g protocols as well as WEP/WPA/WPA2 encryption.
Wi-Fi range depends on many local factors but ranges of up to 4-6 miles are common, significantly higher than the 100 metres typical with many built in laptop antennas.
