_NEMA Multiplexer Miniplex-3USB N2K
The MiniPlex-3 Series NMEA multiplexers comprises a range of advanced NMEA multiplexers which combines data from multiple navigation instruments.
Through an advanced filtering and routing system, this data can be sent to other navigation instruments and to computers, tablets and smartphones.
A bi-directional SeaTalk1 interface enables conversion between SeaTalk1 data and NMEA 0183 sentences. This conversion works both ways, allowing the MiniPlex-3 to replace Raymarine’s SeaTalk-NMEA bridge (E85001).
The MiniPlex-3-N2K models are equipped with an NMEA 2000 interface to connect to an NMEA 2000 backbone with other navigation instruments. The MiniPlex-3 will translate NMEA 2000 PGN’s (messages) into NMEA 0183 sentences and vice versa. This feature enables a seamless integration between NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 navigation devices. It also allows navigation software, which usually only supports NMEA 0183, to receive data from NMEA 2000 devices and to control NMEA 2000 autopilots.
All data is available on one or more computer interfaces in NMEA 0183 format. NMEA 2000 PGN’s and SeaTalk datagrams for which no NMEA 0183 equivalent exists, can be converted to special NMEA 0183 sentences, allowing software developers to support processing of raw NMEA 2000 and SeaTalk data.
Each and every port on a MiniPlex-3 multiplexer is galvanically isolated from the internal electronics and from every other port. This guarantees that no ground loops will be created when adding a MiniPlex-3 to a navigation network. It also ensures a trouble free connection to any type of NMEA 0183 port of any device.
The MiniPlex-3 multiplexers are all functionally identical but differ in type and number of computer interfaces.
