Anchor Alert’s 20-Ton Capabilities
A couple of months ago I mentioned Ascend Marine’s Deep Blue Anchor Alert. MegaYacht.com has a short article (free subscription required) on this product as well.
“The components housed within the anchor unit include the accelerometer and transponder. As the anchor moves, the accelerometer calculates the severity of the motion, rating it on a scale of one to eight. This score is then relayed ultrasonically from the transponder to the boat where it is received by the transducer. It is then transmitted to the display and shown on a bar graph.”
