French yacht builder Aureus Yachts implements intelligent Dutch cable system CAPI2 in Aureus XV Nuenen.
Capi2 Nederland BV reports that the Aureus XV, the first prestigious model of Aureus Yachts, will be equipped with the revolutionary Capi2 bus system.
Aureus XV is a Compact Maxi Yacht, designed by Emanuele Rossi and Eric Benqué (interior). The yacht is being built in La Rochelle and has been fitted with the best equipment imaginable.
The AC and DC bus system is based on intelligent bus technology. Tijmen Harberink explains: “A number of ring systems are installed in the boat. Nodes (electronically controlled power modules) are integrated in the ring systems. These nodes make sure that lighting, instruments and pump systems receive the correct current. Each node has a chip which communicates with the control panel and gives the user the exact status of all the onboard electrical equipment. It also informs the user whether the water tank is full and whether the batteries are charged.”
The two robust control panels have been designed exclusively for Poncin and a number of companies from the Eindhoven region by Capi2. They are clever plug and play panels with just three cables at the back.
Aureus Yachts chose Capi2 as this solution allows intelligent and reliable control while reducing the weight, which is important for granting maximum performance.
The first Aureus XV with CAPI2 will be delivered in La Rochelle in July 2012.
