Please go to the Downloads tab to see the up to date list of conversions the various configurations can handle.
Multiple NGW-1 units can be used to multiplex numerous NMEA 0183 devices onto the NMEA 2000 network, using the network as a means of combining and transferring all data items from one place to another.
The Actisense NMEA Reader software utility allows the NGW-1 user to view and understand (in detail) the translated NMEA 0183 sentences output by an NGW-1 directly.
Benefits of the NGW-1:
Upgrade NMEA 0183 equipment to NMEA 2000
Allow NMEA 0183 devices to receive vital NMEA 2000 data
Use the NMEA 2000 bus to multiplex several NMEA 0183 signals together
