Linking a boat's data networks

Actisense has released the new NGW-1 NMEA 2000 Gateway. This product has already generated huge interest throughout the marine leisure industry, recently winning the British Marine Electronics Association (BMEA) New Product of the Year category for 2009. 


The Actisense NGW-1 provides an uncomplicated way to link a boat’s data networks. The NGW-1 Gateway makes it possible to convert NMEA 0183 data into NMEA 2000 data and vice-versa. Using the advanced configuration software provided, it is straightforward to set up which data conversions are required.
With an ISO-Drive output and an OPTO-isolated input, the NGW-1 is ensured to be free from ground loop installation issues and meets all isolation requirements for NMEA 2000 networks.
Simple to use, the NGW-1 is provided with all the required cabling, and also incorporates screw terminal connectors within the case to allow customer specific wiring to be undertaken. A USB version is also available which creates a virtual communications port via a PC connection.
By allowing the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ to work together, NGW-1 avoids the all-or-nothing headache of upgrading to an NMEA 2000 system.
