Larger Self-contained Boat Network launched by Actisense

Press release – 27 September 2019

UK-based Marine electronics specialists, Actisense, have launched a larger version of their popular Self-contained Boat Network.

The device – named SBN-2 – gives boat owners and installers the ability to set up a completely “Plug & Play” NMEA2000® network with a complete NMEA2000® backbone in a single device, simply requiring a power connection. With built in termination resistors, the SBN-2 provides 8 NMEA2000® drops, meaning that up to 8 NMEA2000® devices – including those from their award-winning range – can be connected.

The SBN-2 is manufactured using ruggedised, watertight and flame-retardant over-moulded housing, making it ideal for potentially wet and harsh marine environments. It comes with an integrated EMI shield and a 3 meter UL-Rated power cable.

Phil Whitehurst, CEO of Actisense, said:

When we released the SBN-1 a couple of years ago, it came with 4 NMEA2000® drops. Our engineering team has been working on ways to give our customers the ability to connect even more devices to their vessels. We are really pleased to unveil the SBN-2 which in effect doubles that capacity for up to 8 NMEA2000® connections – particularly ideal for smaller boats. The SBN-2 is a great low cost option, is highly durable and is quick and easy to install.

The product is set to be revealed at METSTRADE 2019, where Actisense will be exhibiting (Stand 03.132), and is available for pre-order via their worldwide distribution partners.

"We are delighted to work with Actisense. Their high quality products and service means there is no need to sort out warranty issues and problems. The products are well designed and meet almost every customer requirement. It is also a pleasure to deal with the nice and helpful staff, who are always easy to deal with.”
