Cutting Edge Professional Navigation Software Excludes Charts or Licenses (sold separately)
TimeZero Professional v4 software now available!
TZ Professional features some of the most advanced navigation, weather forecasting, and fishing tools all in one.
TZ Professional software has been designed to answer the navigation needs and requirements of all professional seafarers. With features that are truly cutting-edge, TIMEZERO software has two main objectives: Supreme control and performance.
Professional WASSP Multibeam sounder Integration
Using WASSP Multibeam Module together with the PBG Module in your TZ Professional software, you can connect this Multi-Beam Sonar via Ethernet to your computer and unlock powerful integration features that literally paints the seabed below your vessel with thousands of “pings” every second spread across hundreds of beams. The WASSP Echosounder continuously receives multiple depth readings of the seafloor in a swath up to 3.5 times the depth below and behind your vessel, so you can see exactly what is happening on the seafloor and water column in real-time. This data is sent directly to TIMEZERO software and used to create a live, high detail and accurate PBG seabed map. Save time and money by mapping the seafloor faster than ever before.
The WASSP Multibeam sounder is sold with a dedicated DRX processor which can be directly connected to a computer running the TIMEZERO software with PBG and WASSP Modules.
The DRX processor will require a TIMEZERO interface license.
Take your WASSP Multibeam Echosounder to a new level of functionality by integrating it with TZ Professional.
FURUNO DFF3D Multibeam sounder integration
Connect the FURUNO DFF3D via ethernet to your PC and instead of spending hours gathering PBG recordings, you can now collect PBG recordings in just a few sweeps. By adding the optional DFF3D Module together with the PBG Module to your TZ Professional software, you can connect this Furuno Multi-Beam Sonar to your computer and unlock powerful integration features. The DFF3D Sonar is the first entry-level Multi-Beam Sonar able to reliably create PBG up to 200 meters. This data is sent directly to TZ Professional and used to create a highly detailed PBG map faster than ever before.
High-Resolution Oceanographic Forecast
Additional features include the Premium Ocean-O service intended for pelagic fishing. This new option aims to define the best fishing areas. Indeed, pelagic species move according to different parameters such as altimetry, surface temperature or currents.
TZ Professional is the only system that offers multi-day oceanographic forecast service, enabling users to go direct to areas with the best fishing potential.
Bottom Hardness compatibility
The new Bottom Hardness module allows you to investigate the bottom conditions precisely. It can now be recorded via NMEA0183 using various types and brands of sounders.
Control the position of your trawl doors with TZ Professional
The new Trawl Positioning Module available for TZ Professional allows you to view the position and movement of your trawl doors directly in the software. TIMEZERO can integrate data coming from MARPORT sensors for real-time display of your fishing gear. Furthermore, specific tools and workspaces have been developed, allowing you to analyze your navigation areas from different angles.Discover how TIMEZERO integrates MARPORT position data and multi-beam sounders:
- Navigation workspace and Fish Targets display
- 3D Cube workspace
- Custom workspace with real-time schools of fish display in the Section and Water Column views
Wide range of compatible Furuno sounders
Directly connected to the echo sounder or via Furuno NavNet equipment, the Optional Sounder module unlocks a dedicated workspace to display and control FURUNO fish finders DFF1, DFF3, FCV1150, DFF1-UHD, and BBDS1.
Wide range of compatible Furuno radar
Thanks to our partnership with FURUNO, the world’s leading marine electronics manufacturer, TIMEZERO software offers exclusive, native compatibility (simple Ethernet connection) with all the FURUNO DRS antennas as well as the commercial series of FURUNO FAR radars. The radar image can be overlaid directly on the chart in order to have a better understanding of the data. TIMEZERO offers the ability to take full control of the radar directly from a dedicated workspace (Gain, Seaclutter, Rainclutter, etc.).
Enhance your Navigation with Additional Modules
Detect what surrounds you, discover the bottom of the sea like never before. Find a wide range of other modules designed to meet the needs of marine professionals as well as recreational boaters.
What is a module?
A module is effectively a plug-in which unlocks features. Modules can be installed and configured easily within TIMEZERO. The modules add features to the software which can for example improve navigation or aid in the management of hardware and personnel. Click here to view our optional module choices
