We proudly present you the next generation portable pilot unit.
"SIRIUS" has been redesigned to allow more functionality and precision now and new features in the future.
Longer battery runtime
More powerful processor
Shorter charging times
The TRENZ Pilot Unit is distinguished in the maritime industry for its super quick startup, offering instant, precise navigational data to meet the urgent needs of pilots. Its low weight design makes it exceptionally portable, while the long battery life guarantees extended reliability during critical navigational tasks. Equipped with better processors, the pilot unit ensures enhanced performance, effortlessly managing the demands of maritime navigation. This combination of speed, efficiency, and power makes it a globally trusted choice among maritime pilots.
Low weight and small dimensions
Climbing a pilot ladder on a large-scale vessel is a highly responsible and precarious task each pilot is facing every day. Being equipped with heavy and bulky additional gear is an additional risk. Our first task, while determining pilots' demands on a new pilot plug, was to plan our device to be compact and lightweight, able to fit it in almost any pilots pocket.
With a dimension of just 125 x72 x 27mm (LxWxH) and weight below 180 grams, we accomplished this special purpose.
Long battery life
A pilot's shift can take a long time. Maybe too long for battery life of your current pilot plug.
TRENZ Pilot Plug has a very low power consumption including an intelligent power regulation, which helps our powerful battery last longer.
With a running time of 18 - 30 hours (depending on connectivity), TRENZ Pilot Plug will never break down during pilotage. Furthermore, you're able to charge your unit using the second USB-C plug while operating!
High range WiFi and Bluetooth
Ever-expanding capacity on container vessels across the globe and resulting extending ranges on bridges leads to higher requirements of operating range on board. Due to this fact, it is crucial that pilot plugs are able to offer this flexibility during any possible event (docking or manoeuvring).
TRENZ Pilot Plug is equipped with powerful and efficient Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules which makes it operable even on bridge wings of Post-Panamax vessels with ranges of 65 meters and above.
I have been using the Trenz pilot plug for about a year now and compared it to another connector I have been using. Trenz connects really fast to your ppu: I plug in the Trenz and switch on my device and almost instantly I have everything I need on my ppu. Battery power and durability is very good, it lasts long before it needs to be charged, which I can simply do with my iPad charger. I am really satisfied with TRENZ!
I've tested many high class Pilot Plugs. On big beam post panamax vessels, TRENZ Pilot Plug is the unit with best connection experience.
It’s unbelievable how fast the device reacts and how accurate rate of turn it provides. The wifi connection to PPU is reliable. We also appreciate very much the smooth communication with the developers as well as ongoing development of the software.
The equipment from TRENZ is excellent and presents a very good accuracy.
