What are the differences between the NGW-1 variants?

← Back

All NGW-1 variants have a standard NMEA 2000 drop cable and connector (DeviceNet M12, A polarised, male Micro C) for direct connection to an NMEA 2000 backbone T-piece or adapter cable for manufacturer proprietary networks.

All ISO-Drive variants (NGW-1-ISO, NGW-1-ISO-AIS and NGW-1-STNG) have stripped and tinned wires at the end of a high quality 1.5 metre cable to accommodate varying installation requirements to an NMEA Talker and/or NMEA Listener.

All USB variants (NGW-1-USB and NGW-1-USB-AIS) have a 1.5 metre standard USB cable with a USB A plug on the end for easy connection to a computer or USB hub.

The NGW-1-ISO is the standard option applicable to the majority of customers. The NGW-1 Conversion List on the download page details which conversions are supported (and those that are not).

The NGW-1-ISO-AIS is an NGW-1-ISO pre-configured for use with an AIS device. The NGW-1-AIS Conversion List on the download page details which conversions are supported (and those that are not).

The NGW-1-USB is the option typically used with PC software that only understands NMEA 0183 (i.e. it is not compatible with the Actisense NGT-1). The NGW-1 Conversion List on the download page details which conversions are supported (and those that are not).

The NGW-1-USB-AIS is an NGW-1-USB pre-configured for use with PC software that only understands NMEA 0183 and needs or supplies AIS information. The NGW-1-AIS Conversion List on the download page details which conversions are supported (and those that are not).

The NGW-1-STNG is the Raymarine SeaTalkNG option: The kit includes an NGW-1-ISO and a SeaTalkNG to NMEA 2000 adapter cable (STNG-A06045) allowing the NGW-1 to be connected directly to the Raymarine SeaTalkNG network – providing seamless integration with Raymarine products. The NGW-1 Conversion List on the download page details which conversions are supported (and those that are not).

As of April 2015, a SeaTalkNG to NMEA 2000 adapter cable (STNG-A06045) can be purchased with an NGW-1-ISO, NGW-1-ISO-AIS, NGW-1-USB or NGW-1-USB-AIS to allow direct connection to a Raymarine SeaTalkNG network
