NMEA 0183 Range You can be assured our NMEA 0183 product range is built to last. Our robust, high quality, intelligent designs surpass the NMEA 0183 specifications. Actisense NMEA interfaces enable users to get the most out of their instruments and on-board PCs. All of our NMEA 0183 products use our OPTO-isolation technology to protect both the NMEA ‘Talker’ device and the Actisense product from ground loops and power spikes. They also feature high quality screw connectors to make wiring up quick and simple. What is NMEA 0183? NMEA 0183 is the original protocol for sharing data between...

Flexible multiplexing, with preconfigured versions for Autoswitching or AIS operation. The NDC-4 provides complete access to all NMEA 0183 data sources, configurable filters to remove unwanted data, as well as enabling an on-board PC to read and add to the combined data stream. Benefits • Combine up to five NMEA 0183 data sources into one stream • Filter unwanted data The NDC-4 and NDC-4-USB allow up to five OPTO-isolated NMEA 0183 sources to be multiplexed into a single stream*. Separate ISO-DriveTM outputs allow two different downstream Talker baud rates to be created. Change data to a...

NMEA Buffer Safely drive up to six NMEA Listeners, with power distribution for the connected Talker. The NBF-3 NMEA Buffer isolates and buffers NMEA 0183 data, with the power to drive multiple devices. Able to distribute up to six identical, amplified streams of data from one source. The NMEA signals are buffered to ensure that each Listener receives the data at the required voltage levels, providing consistent data quality. • Simple installation Isolation on the input and outputs ensures the protection of the source Talker device and Listening devices. ISO-DriveTM technology on the outputs...

USB to Serial Gateway The USG-2 ensures safety and reliability when connecting a PC to your NMEA 0183 network. The USG-2 converts a USB port into a bi-directional serial port suitable for connecting to a marine standard NMEA 0183 data bus. It provides a far safer connection when compared to standard USB to serial converters. • Simple installation Electrical isolation is provided by the ISO-DriveTM output and OPTO-isolated input making installation simple and free from ground loops. • Eliminates ground loops The input uses the Actisense OPTO-isolation circuitry to protect any connected...

Active DST Module Breathe new digital life into transducers, with digital signal processing technology. The DST-2 digitises depth, speed and temperature transducer signals into NMEA 0183 data to deliver best-in-class seabed tracking. It works with NMEA 0183 compatible devices, such as chart plotters, radars or an on-board PC. In addition, it can be calibrated via a PC to match various sensors and installations. The DST-2 can be used with new or existing transducer installations. When used with an existing transducer the DST-2 can provide a secondary depth sounder as a back up to a new sonar...

NMEA to RS232 Opto-isolator Isolate an RS232 (PC) port to protect against ground loops. The OPTO-4 provides a safe and low cost way of connecting an NMEA 0183 system to a PC or any other device with a standard RS232 9-pin port. As a bi-directional NMEA 0183 to RS232 interface cable, the OPTO-4 utilises OPTO-isolation to protect the PC input and spike protection for the PC output, providing comprehensive isolation of PC hardware when connecting to an NMEA 0183 bus. If isolation in both directions is required, the Actisense USG-2 offers bi-directional isolation in a USB to RS422 (NMEA 0183)...
