B&G Triton T41

A fully networkable alternative to individual gauges, the T41 was designed with both cruisers and club racers in mind, and offers a lot of engineering bang for the buck. The Micro-C Simnet backbone allows you to daisy-chain other T41s and connect a sounder, compass or Triton masthead sensor, thereby delivering a competitively priced anemometer that uses the same internal components found in B&G’s top-tier 3000 series.

B&G’s new all-in-one T41 multifunction display (MFD) is brilliant in more ways than one. Designed specifically for use on sailboats as a “mini” MFD, the unit displays depth, boatspeed and apparent and true wind data in a unique format any sailor will find visually intuitive. A fully networkable alternative to individual gauges, the T41 was designed with both cruisers and club racers in mind, and offers a lot of engineering bang for the buck. The Micro-C Simnet backbone allows you to daisy-chain other T41s and connect a sounder, compass or Triton masthead sensor, thereby delivering a competitively priced anemometer that uses the same internal components found in B&G’s top-tier 3000 series. Data travels through well-insulated Simnet cables and can be networked with a B&G Zeus display. The unit’s up-, down- and select-button-driven menu is elegantly simple, and the watertight glass-bonded screen is immune to moisture. The T41 display can even be integrated with an optional autopilot controller—turning the innovative digital display into a reliable cyber shipmate. $599. B&G, bandg.com
