The Best Boat Accessories of 2023 – Onboard Connections and Networking

MZ-LINK is the control unit that allows MZ Electronics products to be connected to on-board instrumentation. Using this tool, one can first choose the type of boat and, depending on the unit, set some specific parameters and customize the interface, so as to have maximum uniformity between instruments and boat and improve the management of mooring and maneuvering in port. The instrument allows, for example, control of winches, meter counters and thrusters, bow and stern thrusters, all from a single interface.
