Together with her dedicated partners, Alphatron Marine will introduce a number of brand new products to the expected 30.000 visitors.

Since the introduction at Europort 2007 the AlphaBridge portfolio became a benchmark to specialised vessel sectors such as: Patrol boats, Offshore Patrol Vessels, Patrol Support Vessels, PSV,AHTS, Pilot Station Vessels etc.. New developments for Europort include:
AlphaBridge  concept for Tugboats
The recently introduced AlphaTugboatBridge variant has already been widely accepted by tugboat professionals Kotug & Svitzer.

Innovation is the key to Alphatron Marine’s on-going success. Once more a new, versatile AlphaBridge version will be introduced by the name AlphaPremiumBridge. The AlphaPremiumBridge is an ergonomic concept for typical applications like, amongst others, Patrol boats, OPV’s and Crew Suppliers presenting all relevant multifunctional information on 47 inch LED wide screens. A world novelty not seen before! This unique AlphaBridge version has been developed in close cooperation with JRC (Japan Radio Co.

The successful AlphaLine range of marine instruments received a complete make-over and is updated to and with the latest available technology. All new AlphaLine control display units will be equipped as a standard with a Colour TFT touch screen easing operations enormously. As all new Alphatron products use the same in-house developed electronics the need for large stock and spare parts has been kept to an absolute minimum.
The identical hardware is only identified when installing the required software for each type, which increases the versatility of type approved instruments in an unprecedented way. This allows Alphatron to introduce a line of over 20 instrument types at a relatively short notice.
The first three of the above mentioned product range versions will be introduced at Europort and are suited for both high seas and river vessels:
MFS (MultiFunction Small) 5” touch screen (H)horizontal and (V) vertical display controller

There will also be a control version for touch screen as well as hybrid, combining touch with hardwired switching of various functions into one panel.
Further extensions of the AlphaLine MF series are foreseen as both display and control units for navigation and communication equipment in the near future .
For the marine industry, this creates a unique and common identity with standard operation on the bridge like used as a standard in the aerospace industry .
