An OPTO-Isolated NMEA 0183 Data Input
A full galvanic Opto-isolated differential input that fully complies with the NMEA 0183 standard specification. This allows the input to work correctly with long cable runs, and/or in a noisy environment.
6 ISO-Drive Flexible Outputs
Each ISO-Drive output is fully compatible with the RS422 (NMEA 0183), RS485 and RS232 connections on the NMEA listening devices the NBF-2 supplies data to, and offers total galvanic isolation of up to 1500v between the output and ground.
IP66/IP68 Case and Gland Design
A very robust polycarbonate case with a high waterproof certification. The small case size is ideal for space restrictive applications.
Due to the significant protection improvements offered by the ISO-Drive outputs, all Actisense ISO-Drive products come with a extended length warranty of 3-years as standard.
Ground Loop Solution
The ISO-Drive outputs completely remove any problematic ground loops between the NMEA device connected to the input (talker), and all the NMEA devices connected to the 6 ISO-Drive outputs (listeners).
High Quality Angled Screw Terminals
The 'moving cage' type terminals make cable installation a simple and quick operation.
Wide Battery Input Voltage Range
To offer maximum compatibility, a battery supply of anywhere between 10 and 35 volts can be used.
Very Low Current Consumption
Ideal for small vessels with small batteries.
