050 RS-232 Interface

The 050D RS232 interface links the Ockam System to a computer. This link provides access to the system's display and keyboard channels, allowing the computer to read display and polar curve data, control certain aspects of the CPU's operation, control operation of the 044 Magnum indicators and certain other devices, and display calculated functions on the system's indicators. The 050D can also connect to Ockam’s NMEA channel, which in conjunction with the 041 GPS interface, provides complete bi-directional access to the GPS by the computer.

A computer coupled to an Ockam System is a very powerful tool, because it allows you do things with your instruments that simply can’t be done any other way. The most important use for the RS232 interface is as a source of data for OckamSoft™ or other graphical display and control programs. These programs provide information in graphic form such as racecourses, maps, stripcharts, polars, sail selection etc. They also derive important variables using data which the instrument system doesn’t have, such as time to the starting line and waypoint data from data stored in the computer.
