Understanding NMEA protocols - Module 1: NMEA 0183

In this module, we unpack NMEA 0183 networking, and understand the key differences between v1.5 and v2.0 and above. We delve deeper into hardware connections and electrical levels, and look how data flows between NMEA 0183 devices. Finally, we take a closer look at common issues faced with this networking protocol, such as the peril of ground loops, and how you can avoid them.

Module 2: NMEA 2000

In this module, we highlight the exciting developments and standardization afforded by NMEA 2000 networking. We’ll look at both the physical and data layers and go through everything you’ll need to install a fully compliant NMEA 2000 network. Finally, we introduce hybrid networks and what you’ll need if you have both NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 equipment onboard.
