NMEA Reader can be used with the NGT-1 NMEA 2000 PC Interface to view information from the NMEA 2000 network. NMEA 0183 Information can also be displayed using a USG-2 serial to USB Gateway.


EBL Reader

These recorded data files enable basic diagnostics and analysis of NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 networks to be performed.

Further processing can be performed by exporting filtered and decoded data to Excel spreadsheet.

Log files can be analysed by the installer and also sent to Actisense support to aide a support ticket.

Toolkit customers can view all the devices on their NMEA 2000 and Ethernet network and configure Actisense products, like the EMU-1. It can also be used for updating firmware in the EMU-1PRO-BUF-1 and PRO-MUX-1.
