OLEX releases version 16.1

Norwegian based OLEX AS, the manufacturer of complete systems for navigation, plotting, 3D seafloor and fish mapping, is pleased to announce that the latest OLEX 16.1 was released and is available as a free download or through your local OLEX dealer for an upgrade of existing systems.

The improvements of this latest version allow:

  • When perusing historic recordings from the OS1 Fish Mapping Echo Sounder, the type and frequency of the transducer used is now shown.
  • Subsonus, the underwater positioning system provides the SNR for Tags attached to the underwater objects which are tracked in OLEX when using the UP-Subsonus nokkel. Now, the error rate among the data transported is more correctly shown in OLEX.
  • With the AM nokkel OLEX users may view and use the Fangstr catch log application. This is developed in accordance with Norwegian ERS regulations. Combined with Fangstr VMS ensures coverage wherever you fish.

Moreover, there were some bug fixes related to:

  • Subsonus warning colors
  • Fangstr integration
  • OS1

Plus, some minor corrections such as:

  • The interval between the collection of various URL can now be set as low as one minute.

After years of research, development, and testing, OLEX AS has developed and keeps refining the most comprehensive seafloor topography mapping system available on the market. OLEX systems are based on Linux and are considered to be the most stable systems of their kind available on the commercial market. Speed, flexibility, and user-friendliness are important keywords to explain their success.

OLEX can use official and unofficial vector charts, in S57, shape and SOSI format, from Hydrographic Offices and commercial vendors. The navigation charts are displayed alongside the collected seabed data and the chart visualization software will always strive to achieve a clear and informative chart image and prevent the screen from filling up with unnecessary information, by displaying only information relevant to the current zoom scale. Zooming and chart display are fast, easy and seamless.
