NMEA0183 Data Combiner w/RS232
Flexible multiplexing w/preconfigured version for Autoswitching or AIS operation...
The Actisense NDC-4 and NDC-4-USB allow up to five OPTO isolated NMEA 0183 sources to be multiplexed into a single stream*.
Two flexible ISO-Drive outputs allow two different downstream talker baud rates to be created, ensuring maximum system flexibility.
The NDC-4 is flexible and powerful enough to be the heart of a simple system, or one of many Actisense products in a more complex system. It provides complete access to all NMEA 0183 data sources, configurable filters to remove unwanted data, as well as enabling an on-board PC to read and add the combined data stream.
Factory preconfigured versions enable the NDC-4 to be used out of the box for AIS operation (NDC-4-AIS) or as an Autoswitch (NDC-4-ASW).
*Four inputs on the USB version, as the USB interface acts as the fifth channel, overriding the fifth OPTO input.
