marine electronics in uk


Marine electronics refers to electronics devices designed and classed for use in the marine environment where even small drops of salt water will destroy electronics devices. Therefore the majority of these types of devices are either water resistant or waterproof.
The term marine electronics is used for areas such as:
Ship
Yacht
 
Marine electronics devices are:
Chartplotter
Marine VHF radio
Autopilot/Self-steering gear
Fishfinder/Sonar
Radar
GPS
Electronic compass
Satellite television
Marine fuel management
 
Electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, and associated passive interconnection technologies. The nonlinear behaviour of active components and their ability to control electron flows makes amplification of weak signals possible and electronics is widely used in information processing, telecommunication, and signal processing. The ability of electronic devices to act as switches makes digital information processing possible. Interconnection technologies such as circuit boards, electronics packaging technology, and other varied forms of communication infrastructure complete circuit functionality and transform the mixed components into a regular working system.
 
Electronics is distinct from Electrical and Electro-mechanical science and technology, which deal with the generation, distribution, switching, storage, and conversion of electrical energy to and from other energy forms using wires, motors, generators, batteries, switches, relays, transformers, resistors, and other passive components. This distinction started around 1906 with the invention by Lee De Forest of the triode, which made electrical amplification of weak radio signals and audio signals possible with a non-mechanical device. Until 1950 this field was called "radio technology" because its principal application was the design and theory of radio transmitters, receivers, and vacuum tubes.
 
Today, most electronic devices use semiconductor components to perform electron control. The study of semiconductor devices and related technology is considered a branch of solid-state physics, whereas the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems come under electronics engineering. This article focuses on engineering aspects of electronics.
 
Well known in the industry John Rickard founder of Elec Marine is a fully qualified marine electrician. More importantly he has vast experience in both the motor and sailing boat industry. John's aim is to provide a personal yet professional service tailored to each customers needs. Based out of Plymouth but servicing much further afield John has completed hundreds of marine contracts. His aim throughout these has been much the same, to be as many of his customers have put it, "an outstanding marine electrician."

Elec marine was set up in response to the growing demand for expert electricians specializing in the marine industry. Yachts, pleasure craft and fishing boats are getting more complex everyday and integration is now the most important thing. Without it you are not getting the most out of your electronic equipment. It's important that you employ a specialist like John to get not only the best impartial advice on purchases that are tailored to suit your needs, but also so that your boat remains safe and looking beautiful as ever post works. John knows boats, he knows electronics and he'll get to know your needs. Choosing Elec Marine will soon become a no brainer.
