Revolutionary Wi-Fi Gateway with Data Logging
Actisense are proud to announce new product W2K-1. This product is the highly anticipated NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway with data logging technology which has the ability to record navigational and engine data- a feature that is completely unique in the market place.
How is it unique?
Like other devices of the market, the W2K-1 can transmit NMEA 2000 data using TCP and UPD while also offering support for conversion NMEA 0183. However, what makes the W2K-1 stand out amongst its competitors is the voyage data recorder (VDR). This means that the device has the ability to log a wide variety of vessel data such as position, speed, course, depth, windspeed and engine data. No other product on the market can claim both of these features as part of the same device.
All data which is received from the vessel is logged on the W2K-1’s internal micro SD card, which can hold approximately 16 days of data. This data can then be used for later analysis of the voyage.
How does this benefit us?
The logging functionality can be beneficial for a range of different uses. For example, race boat owners can analyse performance of their vessel following a competition. Boat owners owners on the other hand can easily create digital logbooks, diagnose network issues or simply share their trip online.
Phil Whitehurst, CEO of Actisense said:
“Whilst there are several Wi-Fi Gateway’s on the market, we are thrilled to be leading the way when it comes to data logging through Wi-Fi. As the way people consume technology continues to advance it’s important that our marine electronics not only respond to but also anticipates these trends.”
Lesley Keets, COO of Actisense, said:
“There has been plenty of anticipation for the launch of the W2K-1 from our customers and marine electronic enthusiasts we have met at trade shows, such as METSTRADE 2018. We’re so pleased to see this device launch and hope it proves useful as both a Wi-Fi gateway and a data logging device.”
