- TIME ZERO
Olex is a uniqe system for navigation and charting, developed by the Norwegian company Olex AS. The system is used in fisheries, aquaculture, and maritime contracting, and consist of three main elements:
- Functions for seabed, water colomn and currents mapping.
- Navigation, and display of digital vector charts.
- Plotting functions
Olex calculates a sea floor map using data from GPS and echosounder. For each new measured depth, the map improves. The survey takes place automatically and requires no operation.
The sea floor map can display in 2D with contour lines or relief, and in 3D with a virtual camera which can be used to look around the seafloor. Bottom zoom is used to highlight selected depht areas. In addition comes special functions like calculation of water and bottom mass volume, and tools for searching and removal of bad measurings.
Olex is designed for optimal use with easy operation:
- Effordless vector chart handling
- Fast and smooth zooming and chart rotation
- Easy route planning and editing
- Tracking and naming of radar targets
- Autopilot interface with clear information
- Depths and elevations in meters, fathoms or feet
- Highlights previous echosoundings for help in navigation
- Automatic tide correction
- Animated lights and sectors
- All trips stored for future reuse
- Stepless dimming, and night screen
- Multiple languages available
Software updates from Olex are free of charge.
TZ Professional Fish version 3 is the latest version of our marine navigation software and the one sole product that suits all the needs of professionals at sea.
Close to 25,000 vessels currently use our TIMEZERO software. This new version offers an incredible amount of new features specifically designed for both professional fishermen and workboats.
The latest version of the PBG module will allow you to create charts of the seafloor even clearer and more realistic. The 2D and 3D imaging will now have customizable color coding scales which will allow for instantaneous precision research.
The new 3D view will make visualization of data even more simple and intuitive.
Instantaneously display a point to point depth profile window. This 2D view will allow you to identify the depth variations with unequalled precision (rocks, shipwrecks, etc.).
A workspace exclusively dedicated for professional fishermen will allow for personalization of 2D/3D so accessing information that is most pertinent is shown first.
TZ Professional is now compatible with the official S57/S63 formats.
The official S57/S63 charts are updated every week. These maps respect the S52 standard developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The iconography offers a simplified display in order to improve the readability of the marine charts on screens.
Route Planning is of the utmost importance for all professions at sea.
Our new technology assures the security of a route upon creation: Through color codes (green/red) it is instantaneously possible to know if the depth is sufficient for the safe passing of your boat. An automatic route wizard will provide you with information regarding to the optimal departure and arrival time, taking into account tides and currents.
New AIS Features
The configuration of AIS can sometimes prove to be complex. Our new AIS module allows for complete configuration of all information directly within TZ Professional (Status, Destination, etc.). Furthermore, it is now possible to receive and send AIS text messages from TZ Professional. This system will allow for simplified communication, free and individual with all boats which are equipped with AIS.
The new security cone is a feature in adherence with the official rules of the IMO. It takes into account the information of vector charts in order to detect isolated dangers and shallow areas. If an obstacle is detected inside this cone in front of the boat’s trajectory, an anti-grounding alarm will automatically be triggered.
Voyage Data Recorder Module
This new module that comes as an option, offers the possibility to save all the information received from the connected sensors to TZ Professional (GPS, radar, AIS, etc.). It is particularly useful in the case of an incident as it allows one to look back at all the available information relative to the surrounding environment of the boat at that given date and time.
