NGX-1 NMEA 2000® Dual Gateway

SKU: ACT-0081

Intelligent Gateway technology enables interfacing with NMEA 2000 and a PC and converting between NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000.

The NGX-1 is an intelligent multi-function gateway, combining the power of our previous generation products (NGT-1 and NGW-1) into one cost-effective, flexible product.

The NGX-1 provides an uncomplicated way to link between a boat’s data networks and converts NMEA 0183 data into NMEA 2000 data and vice-versa. Multiple NGX-1 units can multiplex numerous NMEA 0183 devices onto the NMEA 2000 network, using the network to combine and transfer all data from one place to another.

The NGX-1 is also an NMEA 2000 to PC interface, able to precisely transfer messages to and from the NMEA 2000 bus. It is compatible with various chart-plotters, display and configuration applications available for PCs.

Actisense Toolkit and NMEA Reader software packages enable viewing of NMEA 2000 PGNs, device set-up, configuration and diagnostics, all to be performed via the NGX-1.


Fully NMEA 2000 Certified

The handy firewall feature enforces the NMEA 2000 bus rules so that software developers can create compliant software at a fraction of the direct certification costs. The supporting Actisense Software Development Kit (SDK) helps to reduce the required development time.

Actisense welcomes enquiries from software manufacturers who want to incorporate NMEA 2000 and the NGX-1 into their software.

Bridge an NMEA 2000 network with your old 0183 electronics using the NGX-1.
