NGW-1 NMEA 2000® Gateway NMEA 2000® Gateway

Hook up to NMEA 2000 whilst keeping currently installed NMEA 0183 devices.

The NGW-1 provides an uncomplicated way to link between a boat’s data networks and converts NMEA 0183 data into NMEA 2000 data and vice-versa.

Multiple NGW-1 units can be used to multiplex numerous NMEA 0183 devices onto the NMEA 2000 network, using the network as a means of combining and transferring all data from one place to another.

Ordering information
(Part number/s)

The NGW-1 is available to purchase in a variety of options:

NGW-1-ISO is the standard option. With an opto-isolated input and ISO-Drive output for direct NMEA 0183 device bi-directional connection.

NGW-1-ISO-AIS is the NMEA 0183 AIS option that enables the conversion of NMEA 0183 AIS data to its equivalent in NMEA 2000. This provides an ‘out of the box’ solution for quick installation with no configuration required.

NGW-1-USB is the NMEA 0183 USB (1.1 and 2.0) interface for bi-directional connection to a PC for use with NMEA 0183 software.

Every option of the NGW-1 is available with the SeaTalkNG to NMEA 2000 adaptor Cable – STNG-A06045. The SeaTalkNG to NMEA 2000® adaptor cable (STNG-A06045) is not available as a standalone product and must be bought as part of a bundle.
