This old - Version 1.2 text - is for Information only. Please use Firmware Version 1.8
We have uploaded a new firmware and config tool version.
This new Version 1.2 has :
* Sending data to the SeaTalk Network.
In Version 1.0, the multiplexer could only read data from the
SeaTalk network and translate them to NMEA sentences.
In this new Version, data received from a NMEA Port can also be
sent to the SeaTalk Network.
* Master Slave automatic switch-over
NMEA Ports can be defined as "Master" and "Slave" ports.
This is a automatic fall-back function, in case a NMEA device should fail.
Let's assume we have two GPS devices.
One is attached to NMEA-IN 1, the other is attached to NMEA-IN 2
Port NMEA-IN 1 is configured as "Master"
Port NMEA-IN 2 is configured as "Slave"
As long as we receive NMEA Data on NMEA-IN 1, all Data from
NMEA-IN 2 is discarded.
If the GPS device on NMEA-IN 1 should stop working, the
multiplexer will recognize, that no more data is received
at NMEA-IN 1.
After a few seconds, the multiplexer will start to process data
from NMEA-IN 2 ( the slave port ) , and GPS data are available
Version 1.0 ( Windows Version ) had a bug in it's firmware update function.
A warning - Image file too large - popped up and firmware update was impossible.
You can find a ZIP package containing the new firmware and config tool
in our download section or just click HERE.
