Advanced Systems Group announces the launch of the Attwood PowerBase Series, Intelligent, powered fold-lown light or antenna bases for boats
- Fold down and deploy lights and antennas with a push of a button
- No need to leave the helm, improving safety, accessibility and reliability
- Making life on the water easier to enjoy
Attwood, a division of Advanced Systems Group (ASG) by Brunswick, is delighted to announce the launch of the all-new PowerBase Series. Shortlisted in the 2021 DAME Awards at METSTRADE, PowerBase is the marine industry’s first truly intelligent, powered fold-down light or antenna base, all controlled with just a push of a button from the helm of a vessel.
Whether on inland waterways and faced with low bridges, or out at sea when the daylight starts to disappear, boaters will never have to leave the cockpit or helm position to access their antennas when underway.
The PowerBase series provides safety, accessibility, and reliability with the following features:
- SafeGuard Breakaway – In the event of an impact, PowerBase will safely return to stowed position preventing potential damage
- SmartDeploy Backdrive – In the event of a blocked deployment, PowerBase senses an obstruction and reverses the light/antenna back to its starting position
- Standardised mounting patterns allow for upgradeability
- Available in Masthead and All-Round configurations featuring Attwood brand LightArmor LED Technology (PowerBase Light)
Providing a solution for boaters who have long faced the issue of leaving the cockpit to deploy and stow antennas, often in challenging conditions, the PowerBase series, through its intuitive design and technology, means users can experience worry-free boating. The intuitive design and safety features will give users reassurance that PowerBase is always aware.
“Building upon our successes within the industry leading Attwood LightArmor navigation light portfolio, PowerBase allows us to challenge the status quo and address major safety and accessibility needs faced by boaters each and every day,” said Justin Focht, Product Manager at ASG. “PowerBase also offers our OEM partners seamless integration with their existing boat designs and will dramatically reduce hardtop warranty and service claims.”
