Cannes, september 10th 2019 – A great start for the nautical events schedule of Quick Spa, the Italian company leader in the production of nautical equipment. On the occasion of the first international Boat Show, the company presents two great news.
Main focus of Cannes 2019 is the QNN – Quick Nautical Network, an innovative, almost pioneering device, which allows the integration of the Quick systems with the navigation systems.
The QNN – Quick Nautical Network is a gateway able to receive all the different protocols used by Quick devices (e.g. thrusters, battery chargers, windlasses, MC² Quick Gyros, lights etc), to convert them into the HTML5 protocol and send them to all the new generation chart plotters on the market.
“We are very proud of this new product. The idea came from my daughter Chiara and late it was studied, designed and improved by our valuable Italian team – says Michele Marzucco, President & CEO of Quick Spa. QNN – Quick Nautical Network brings two huge innovations: the plug&play connection and the possibility to have the control of the Quick products fully integrated in the chart plotter”.
Thanks to the plug&play connection system, that is really easy to install, the calibrations made on the Quick products systems or on the chart plotter are automatically shared between the two systems (Quick and chart plotter): if the user has a new generation chart plotter compatible with HTML5, he only needs to connect the chart plotter to the QNN and to the Quick products systems.
Once installed, a new icon will pop up on the chart plotter to allow the user to get to the Quick products homepage and to the control interface. The user will be able to use the QNN as if he were using a thruster proportional joystick, windlass, gyro stabilizer, lights, and so on.
“We are happy to bring this new product into the nautical world and we trust it will have a strong appeal for our partners – said Paolo Paolini, Chief Technical Officer at Quick Spa. QNN is the result of an in-depth study of shipowners’ needs and priorities and we worked hard and with passion to keep them satisfied.”
