NMEA Backbone (part 2)
The network on Loafers Glory is significantly denser than it was when I wrote the October 2017 NMEA entry.
That page has been updated and shows some of the devices that were added, but not all.
I’ll enumerate the devices on the bus:
- Power tap - A 12v (nominal) power supply to the NMEA 2000 bus.
- Garmin 742xs - Chartplotter that provides a graphical interface to all of the devices on the bus and provides maps, charts, and helm capabilities.
- Garmin GPS 19x - GPS receiver.
- Garmin GHP 12 - Autopilot controller consisting of three distinct devices:
- GHC helm control unit
- Electronics Control Unit (ECU)
- Course Computer Unit (CCU)
- Maretron DSM410 - Display unit providing management capabilities for Maretron devices.
- Maretron SSC300 - Solid state compass that also provides roll and pitch data.
- Maretron TLM100 - Fuel Tank Level Monitor.
- Maretron WSO100 - Wind monitor - direction and speed.
- Maretron DST110 - Depth/Speed/Temperature sensor.
- Actisense NGT-1 - A bi-directional gateway between NMEA 2000 and USB.
- NoLand RS11 - Engine monitor that converts analog engine outputs into NMEA 2000 data.
- YachtDevices YDVR-04 - Voyage Recorder - writes a copy of all NMEA 2000 data to non-volatile memory (my boat’s black box recorder)
- CAMINO-108S - AIS transponder.
