The instruments can act as a standalone indicator, a repeater for measurements like speed, depth, time, wind speed and direction, or as a magnetic compass repeater. In the AlphaLine MultiFunction, Alphatron offers you a complete series of sophisticated instruments typified by uniform design and simple operation: clearly visible and well lit buttons, a TFT screen with five different colour charts and touchscreens supported by a multifunctional rotary knob whenever more functionality is needed.
Mix & match
The most suitable arrangement of instruments and screen sizes can be selected for every type of ship. The screens come in small 5.0-inch (MFS), medium 6.5-inch (MFM) en large 8.4-inch (MFL); these are the basis for the complete series of new navigation and communication products that will be introduced over the next few years. The AlphaLine MultiFunction, an innovation and co-creation between JRC and Alphatron Marine, is where the JRC processor and the Alphatron Marine uniform displays converge.

- Engine information panel

All instruments have the same processor; this makes maintenance easier. In principle, the instruments are mounted using the famous click panel (flush mount system), where all the screws are neatly hidden away. Desktop mounting is also a possibility, if required.
