VOLVO OCEAN RACE SYSTEM
Keep it simple!
There is a major emphasis on keeping the Mastervolt system
as simple and intuitive as possible. The crews consist of
top athletes who want to spend as little time as possible on
managing the electrical systems on board.
The CZone digital control and monitoring network
simplifies the system as it allows complex wiring to
switching and fuse panels to be replaced by robust,
modern connections. It also provides the option of
automating complex control and monitoring functions.
NMEA cables are replaced by the Ancor version for
better water resistance, and the new waterproof CZone
Touch 5 touchscreen with Wi-Fi provides full control and
monitoring. All major components are also monitored
remotely and the generated data allows Mastervolt to
constantly improve its products.
For the 2017-18 race each yacht will be equipped
with an extra water-powered charging system.
The output of this device and all other charge
point inputs can be monitored in real time via the
Power Project monitoring page on the official Volvo
