Scanstrut’s Scanpod range of pods for electronics has a new, compact design for secure, watertight installations, according to the U.K.-based company, which has U.S. sales and distribution in Guilford, Conn.
Scanpod products consist of deck pods, helm pods and instrument mast pods that are compatible with popular chart plotters from 8 inches and standard and maxi instruments. They replace, expand and improve the previous range of pods, according to Adam Ramsden, Scanstrut’s head of international sales. The design features a saddle and U-bolt system that is lightweight, versatile and easy to fit, he says.
Fabricated from UV-stable, acrylic-capped ABS with a double-layer laminated front, the pods are stiffer and stronger yet lighter, Ramsden says. Helm pods start at $439, deck pods at $499 (helm and deck precut models for Raymarine widescreens are also available), and instrument pods at $299 (helm- or mast-mounted).
