Leading marine power generation manufacturer Northern Lights has introduced the Tough Series Control Panel (TSC) to provide truly intuitive control to Northern Lights generator set functions.

Featuring a back-lit LCD display screen and large, easy-to-read push buttons, TSC is versatile enough to permit remote monitoring and control connection through a single data and power cable, up to 30 meters in length. Available RS485 and J1939 protocols can be connected to a remote monitoring system.

The TSC is factory programmed with voltage and current monitoring for single and three-phase applications. Pressure and temperature warnings and shutdowns are standard to help protect generator sets. Warnings and shutdowns for frequency and voltage protect electrical equipment. Sound enclosure mounting is available for a quiet and streamlined engine room.

“The state of the art in power generation deserves a control panel that is its equal in terms of quality and performance,” said Northern Lights, Inc. Vice President and General Manager Brian Vesely. “TSC provides the depth of information that boatbuilders and captains require. Our experienced engineers will factory-customize the level of control that is appropriate for our clientele,” he added.

The Tough Series Controller is available on a wide range of Northern Lights generator sets, both marine and land-based. The Northern Lights family of marine generator sets includes products from 5-545kW. Northern Lights Commercial series generator sets include products from 20-150kW.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
