SINGLE-HANDED CONTROL FOR YOUR CORTEX® SYSTEM
Available in tethered and portable versions, Cortex touchscreen handsets are the ultimate interface for your Cortex system. They put the best in VHF communications and AIS situational awareness right at your fingertips — no matter where you are on your boat.
Add multiple Cortex handsets to a Cortex V1 or VHF-ready Cortex M1 hub for more control in more places
Enjoy easy one-hand operation with your handset’s touchscreen, click-wheel and dedicated select keys.
The handset’s high-fidelity speaker delivers up to 85 dBA of crystal-clear audio for superior VHF communication.
You can quickly initiate DSC direct calls by tapping the AIS boat symbol on the handset’s touchscreen.
Communicate and control from anywhere onboard with Wi-Fi® handset connectivity to your Cortex hub.
The unit’s 4″ touchscreen and rugged case are built to withstand harsh, wet marine environments.
CONNECT TO YOUR CORTEX
Paired with your Cortex hub, the Cortex H1 tethered or H1P portable handset serves as the control and voice-calling interface for VHF, DSC calling and AIS display of potential collision risks. You can optionally add extra Cortex handsets (sold separately) for even more freedom and control on board.
Cortex lets you initiate DSC direct calls with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel icon on your handset. Initiate VHF calls to friends or quickly hail another vessel when every second counts.
Wet hands or wearing gloves? No problem. Cortex handsets are glove-friendly and they provide responsive multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom and onscreen panning control in all types of marine environments. The 4″ Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchscreen offers superior durability against impact and abrasion.
SUNLIGHT VIEWABLE SCREEN
The handset’s bright, optically bonded LCD display offers brilliant daylight visibility with optical clarity over a wide viewing angle. The screen is readable, even if you’re wearing polarised glasses.
NEVER MISS A WORD
Enjoy crisp, clear audio through a high-fidelity 85 dBA speaker in the handset. Avoid “say again” requests and hear critical communications.
Cortex handsets are equipped with a click-wheel, ergonomic design and grip-enhancing exterior so you can use the device while keeping one hand on the helm wheel or tiller.
Both the Cortex H1 and H1P handsets connect to the Cortex hub using Wi-Fi technology. Thus, there’s no need to run any wires from the handset to the hub.
DEDICATED MAN OVERBOARD
Cortex smartAIS continuously watches for man overboard (MOB) activations, sounding an alarm when it detects one. The dedicated MOB situation screen activates automatically, initiating a track-back mode and showing the water temperature, time and location of the MOB activation.
UNCLUTTERED SITUATION SCREENS
Whether it’s a potential collision, man overboard situation or you are simply setting anchor, Cortex’s situation screens all help focus attention on priority actions by removing nonessential visual clutter from the display. You can quickly and intuitively see what needs to happen next.
CHANNEL 16 QUICK KEY
When seconds matter in an emergency situation, the handset’s dedicated Channel 16 VHF quick-connect key takes you directly to the international distress calling frequency.
MONITORING AND CONTROL
Each Cortex handset provides a screen to set up and manage the Cortex hub, view AIS target data and vessel instrumentation, manage and monitor alarms and configure the system’s remote vessel monitoring capabilities.
RUGGED, GRIP-TIGHT DESIGN
The handset’s grip-enhancing moulded case features a tactile non slip surface with padded impact absorption zones to keep it from sliding off surfaces and help prevent impact damage if it’s ever dropped.
