MaxSea launches TZ v4

MaxSea launches TZ v4 MaxSea’s TZ Professional v4 offers a range of new options, including compatibility with Marport trawl sensors, a bottom hardness module and multi-beam sounder integration

MaxSea’s TZ Professional v4 has been released, bringing with it a number of new features that expand its functionality for fishing.

TZ’s trawl positioning mode is compatible with Marport trawl sensors, offering the capability of pinpointing the position of the trawl doors, with the advantages that this provides in terms of working around seabed obstructions and on difficult terrain.

A bottom hardness module allows users more possibilities to examine seabed conditions with precision, and this can be recorded via NMEA0183 using third party sounders, including Simrad ES70 and ES80, Koden CVS-FX series, Hondex HDX-121, HE-1500Di, and HE-7300Di, JRC JFC-130 series and Seascan sounders.

Time Zero v4 also includes multi-beam sounder integration, with capacity to save up to 500,000 fish targets in a database. In turn, these targets can be displayed on the chart and on the 3D Cube.

New bottom lock and bottom zoom sounder views are also available. This displays helps distinguish fish near the bottom from the sea bed. In addition, the expanding display of the bottom and the fish near the sea bed allows clearer determination of bottom density.

In addition TZ Professional offers access to the Premium Ocean-O service, designed to support pelagic fishing. This new option is designed to define the optimum fishing areas as pelagic species move, depending on altimetry, surface temperature or currents.
According to MaxSea, TZ Professional is the only system that offers multi-day oceanographic forecast service, enabling users to go direct to areas with the best fishing potential.
