Bluefin’s sophisticated IYS module offers easy App control of onboard lighting
Bluefin’s new IYS (Intelligent Yacht System) module provides a simple yet sophisticated and cost-effective way of controlling on board lighting via an easy-to-use App.
Able to be used on all compatible MFDs and mobile smart devices, the Bluefin App-connected IYS module is able to control all low voltage lighting both above and below the water.
With six output channels are available, it can also control a number of other onboard systems including pumps, motors, fans, wipers, horns, alarms and any per channel DC Load up to 10A. There is also a separate control output for colour change yacht signage and name boards.
Additional lighting control can also be provided directly from the module via a DMX/RDM Bus. This DMX Bus enables the control of 12 separate channels of compliant RGBW(W) lights as well as sound-to-light control of changing-colour lights.
All six IYS channels are PLC enabled, giving a high level of sophistication and control with all Bluefin 2-wire lights, including single colour, dual colour and colour change, a luxury that was previously only available on high end lights. Features such as dimming, strobe, colour and modes can also be directly controlled over the power connections.
Launched late last year at METS, Bluefin’s IYS attracted lots of positive feedback with industry representatives particularly appreciating its wide range of features and very affordable pricing. Bluefin says they expect the Raymarine version of their App to be available in March, with versions for other brand MFDs to be released later in the year.
The Bluefin IYS module and full range of quality underwater lights are available from Lusty & Blundell’s nationwide network of leading marine dealers.
