W2K-1 NMEA 2000® to Wi-Fi Gateway NMEA 2000® to Wi-Fi Gateway

The W2K-1 is a rugged and reliable NMEA 2000 to Wi-Fi Gateway with built-in data logger.

It transfers data from an NMEA 2000 backbone to any device (e.g laptop, tablet or smartphone) connected to it via Wi-Fi and additionally can convert this data to NMEA 0183 using Actisense’s renowned conversion engine.

 

Where To Buy

NMEA 2000 to WiFi Gateway

The W2K-1 has built-in conversion of NMEA 2000 messages into NMEA 0183 sentences thus allowing a wide variety of vessel data (e.g. position, speed, course, wind speed, depth, engine data, AIS messages etc.) to be shared with NMEA 0183 compatible software applications running on connected devices.

All the data received (or a selected subset) can be logged to its internal micro SD card for later downloading to use for analysing the voyage. This is very useful for analysing race data, generating logbooks, diagnosing problems or even sharing your voyage details. Approximately 16 days* of data can be stored on the pre-installed industrial grade micro SD card, which can be upgraded should the user require more storage.

The W2K-1 has the legendary Actisense “Reliability Built-In” along with useful diagnostic LEDs, internal antenna, enhanced password security, full certification and all packaged in an extremely rugged IP67 case.

*Bus load-dependent – can vary between 6 and 100 days
