WGX-1 NMEA 2000® to Wi-Fi Gateway

The WGX-1 is an intelligent NMEA 2000 WiFi Gateway with bi-directional conversion capability.

Transfer data from an NMEA 2000 backbone to any device (e.g laptop, tablet or smartphone) connected to the WGX-1 via Wi-Fi and additionally convert data bi-directionally between NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 using Actisense’s renowned conversion engine. The WGX also acts as a wired gateway, allowing for transfer or conversion of data between existing NMEA 0183/NMEA2000 instruments. Actisense-i is a suite of diagnostic tools and health checker for your network which comes free with the product. NMEA 2000 data logging is also possible if an SD card is inserted (not supplied).

The WGX-1 has built-in conversion of NMEA 2000 messages into NMEA 0183 sentences and vice-versa. Allowing a wide variety of vessel data (e.g. position, speed, course, wind speed, depth, engine data, AIS messages etc.) to be shared with connected devices and applications both wired and wireless.

Stream NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 data over Wi-Fi with ease, making it simple to integrate with your favourite boating apps.

Data can be logged to an internal micro SD card (not supplied) for post voyage analysis. This is very useful for analysing race data, generating logbooks, diagnosing problems or even sharing your voyage details.

Actisense-i comes included as standard. Benefit from our full suite of diagnostic tools to help check and diagnose potential issues on a boat’s electronics network, including voltage issues, and the working status of all devices attached to the network, Actisense-i has been designed to save installers and boaters time and ultimately, money, by giving them confidence in their electronics onboard.

The WGX-1 has the legendary Actisense “Reliability Built-In” along with useful diagnostic LEDs, internal antenna, enhanced password security, full certification and all packaged in an extremely rugged IP67 case.
