1 in and 6 out: How can there be 6 outputs when there are only 5 grommets?
To make the Actisense NMEA Buffer module highly cost competitive, the module case only has 5 ‘waterproof’ grommets. What grommet is used for what purpose is entirely flexible and up to the user, but it has been designed thus:
- 1 x battery power input
2-core cable (bottom grommet)
- 1 x NMEA data input
2-core twisted pair cable (top left grommet)
- 1-6 x NMEA data outputs
Utilise the 3 remaining grommets as required.
When more than 3 outputs are required, multi ‘twisted pair’ cable is required to share the 3 output grommets between the 6 outputs.
If it is more practical, any of the inputs or outputs could obviously be combined together in a multi-core cable and share a cable grommet – the module is totally flexible.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NBF-2 IS A RETIRED PRODUCT.
