    VHF, AIS AND MONITORING

    Cortex V1 is an advanced multi-station VHF radio with remote monitoring and control. The Cortex V1 system includes a Cortex M1 hub and Cortex H1 tethered handset. Connect additional Cortex handsets (sold separately) for even more freedom and control on board.

    COLLISION AVOIDANCE

    Cortex smartAIS continuously monitors AIS information from other boats and calculates crossing situations, generates collision alarms and provides easy-to-understand avoidance cues. Data from its built-in heading sensor is also broadcast, so other vessels can clearly identify which direction your boat is moving.

    VHF VOICE FLEXIBILITY

    Both portable and power-tethered style Cortex handsets connect wirelessly via Wi-Fi® link to the Cortex M1 hub. Keep a portable handset with you for continual VHF communications access from anywhere on your boat.

    ONE-TOUCH DSC

    Cortex lets you initiate DSC direct calls with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel icon on your handset. Initiate VHF calls to friends or quickly hail another vessel when every second counts.

    ANCHOR WATCH

    Whether you’re onboard or ashore, you can know for sure your boat is securely anchored. Cortex smartAIS accurately tracks boat movement, heading and bow position, alerting you if your anchor drags.

    VHF, CLEAR AND LOUD

    The Cortex VHF radio puts out up to 85 dBA of powerful, crystal-clear audio, so you won’t miss critical communications.

    HORN AND LOUDSPEAKER

    Need to catch someone’s attention? Easily sound preset horn signals or speak through your loudspeaker with any Cortex handset or the Cortex Onboard smart-device app.

    HANDSETS ANYWHERE YOU NEED THEM

    Multiple Cortex H1 and Cortex H1P handsets can be connected to each hub. Up to 5 can connect directly to the Cortex Network, with an additional 5 through an existing boat network for increased range on larger vessels.

    INTUITIVE CONTROL

    Designed for simplicity with easy-to-understand screens and step-by-step data flows during critical situations, Cortex makes advanced features easy to use.

    VOICED ALERTS

    Instead of ambiguous bells or tones, you'll hear a voice prompt to tell you what the alert is for. In case of a potential collision, you’ll also be told the direction of the threat, so you’ll quickly know where to look.

    DEDICATED MAN OVERBOARD

    Man overboard (MOB) can be manually activated using the dedicated MOB button on the Cortex handset, Cortex Onboard smart device app or automatically from an AIS MOB beacon — which launches a trackback mode for quick retrieval.

    WET AND GLOVE CAPABLE

    Wet hands? Wearing gloves? Cortex handsets are designed to be glove friendly, and they’re built to operate in all types of saltwater or freshwater marine environments.

    ONE-HAND OPERATION

    Cortex handsets are equipped with a click-wheel, ergonomic design and grip enhancing exterior, so you can use the device while keeping one hand on the helm wheel or tiller.

    RESPONSIVE MULTI-TOUCH

    Cortex touchscreen handsets provide responsive multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom and panning control, ensuring fast, smooth navigation and intuitive operation.

     

    RUGGED, DURABLE DESIGN

    Water-rated to IPX7 standards (resists water ingression when submerged up to 30 minutes in up to one metre of water), the Cortex hub’s thermal polymer housing is heat- and corrosion-resistant — so it can be safely mounted anywhere onboard. The Cortex handsets are IPX8 water-rated, too.

    LOW POWER CONSUMPTION

    Engineered for minimal power consumption at just 500mA, the Cortex hub can stay on full-time to keep you informed. It will alert you even when your MFD is turned off — ideal if you need to conserve power when anchored or on a long voyage.

    OUTSHINES EXTREME DAYLIGHT

    The bright, optically bonded LCD screen offers brilliant daylight visibility and a wide viewing angle. A built-in ambient light sensor allows automatic adjustment as conditions change.

    GALVANIC ISOLATION

    Galvanically isolated ports and internal components protect your Cortex hub and connected equipment from electrical shorts and circuit damage in the corrosive marine environment.

    MULTI-CONSTELLATION GNSS

    With fast 10Hz GPS updates that keep up with your vessel, your vessel position is plotted using multiple global satellite networks. When you connect other devices to Cortex using NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183, all onboard equipment benefits from Cortex’s super-fast GPS capability.

    12/24V OPERATION

    Cortex will operate on 12- and 24-volt power supplies, making it easily plug-and-play compatible with most electrical systems on vessels of all sizes.
