OLEX releases version 16.3

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 16.3 was released and is available as a free download or through your local OLEX dealer for an upgrade of existing systems.

Nevertheless, the question remains on: what happened to OLEX 16.2? This version was ready the same morning the OLEX Team travelled to the Aberdeen fish expo. During the Show, a serious bug relating to OS1 was discovered. This had to be fixed before releasing the new version. Hence, the OLEX software releases “jumped” directly to version 16.3 avoiding any user inconvenience.

The improvements of this latest version, including those of unreleased v.16.2, allow:

  • URLs may now be fetched every minute.
  • Removed Barents Watch reporting via e-mail.
  • Better life signs from OS1.

Moreover, there were some bug fixes related to:

  • Shared memory.
  • OS1 ergonomics.
  • OS1 dual screen.
  • OS1 reporting settings.
  • Stability.

After years of R&D 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.
