NMEA connections are doubled

Eight NMEA devices can be connected using the SBN-2

Industry Database

The new SBN-2 device from Actisense has been developed to give boat owners and installers the ability to set up a plug and play NMEA2000 network with a NMEA2000 backbone in a single device.

With built in termination resistors, the SBN-2 provides eight NMEA2000 drops, allowing up to eight NMEA2000 devices to be connected.

“When we released the SBN-1 a couple of years ago, it came with four NMEA2000 drops,” said Phil Whitehurst, Actisense CEO. “Our engineering team has been working on ways to give our customers the ability to connect even more devices to their vessels.”

The SBN-2 is manufactured using ruggedised, watertight and flame-retardant over-moulded housing, making it suitable for potentially wet and harsh marine environments.

It comes with an integrated EMI shield and a 3m UL-rated power cable.

The product is set to be shown at METSTRADE 2019 on stand 03.132.
