NoLand Serial Multiplexer
Connect up to four different NMEA 0183 devices
to a single serial port to add wind, depth, and other information to charting
Each NoLand Serial Multiplexer provides four NMEA 0183 standard listener ports and
one talker port. Multiple units may be interconnected to provide
up to ten listener ports (e. g. two units will provide seven listener
ports and three units, ten listener ports). The talker port is
provided to enable the computer to send specific NMEA 0183 messages
to instruments equipped with a listener port, such as a LORAN
or GPS receiver.
Multiplexer installation is quick and
easy. The multiplexer module can be mounted to any surface; all
connections are made via a terminal strip. NoLand Multiplexers are
automatic, too; once a multiplexer is powered, it immediately begins to acquire
data without any further interaction.
