NMEA Multiplexer with bidirectional SeaTalk network and USB Port

Information about the gadgetPool NMEA & SeaTalk Multiplexer with USB Port.

This NMEA-Multiplexer allows you to connect serveral NMEA devices, read data from a SeaTalk network, send data to a SeaTalk network and also connect your PCto the NMEA and SeaTalk network.


Multiplexer ports :

  • 4 galvanic isolated NMEA 0183 inputs.
  • 4 NMEA 0183 outputs (NEW)
  • 1 galvanic isolated SeaTalk in-/output. SeaTalk Data are translated into NMEA sentences, NMEA Data are translated into SeaTalk data.
  • 1 USB port for PC. With the USB port, a PC can send and receive NMEA Data.

What is a Nmea-Multipelxer good for ?

NMEA devices can send data and/or receive data from other NMEA devices. .


According to NMEA standards, a sender can send it's data to up to 4 receivers.



For a receiver, It is not possible to receive data from more than one sender.
A NMEA receiver can only receive data from one other device at a time.
I.e. With one NMEA input port, a Chart plotter can not receive position from a GPS device and depth data from a depth sounder at the same time.



In order to be able to receive data from more than one NMEA source, a NMEA-Multiplexer has to be placed in between the senders and the receiver.

A NMEA-Multiplexer receives data on separated input ports from different NMEA devices.
It buffers this incoming data, filters them and sends them out well ordered to the receiver.
