The NMEA 0183 to USB adaptor works on PCs, Macs and Linux computers. It converts NMEA 0183 data, used by many marine systems, into a USB format that can be plugged into most modern computers. The adaptor is a bi-directional device. Therefore, data can be sent to and from systems and supports traditional 4800 baud data or the higher speed 38400 baud rate used by AIS systems. LEDs show data being received and transmitted. Thus helping with interfacing issues and encapsulating all the electronics into the connector.
The device creates a virtual COM port on the PC which navigation and charting software can use to read NMEA data. If necessary, multiple adaptors can be connected . This effectively allows the creation of any number of NMEA ports on your PC. The device ships with a multi platform driver CD so it can be used on PCs, MACs and even Linux based systems. In addition, you’ll recieve a bonus as SmarterTrack Lite AIS viewing software if you’re using the device with an AIS. This effectively turns your PC into an AIS target display.
