NMEA 2000 Products

MediaBox

The VDO Marine MediaBox can be mounted literally everywhere on the boat. Listen to radio and weather forecasts with its built in AM / FM Tuner or connect a MP3 player or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth to enjoy your favorite music. The MediaBox is NMEA 2000® certified and can be used with the VDO Marine AcquaLink® and OceanLink® TFT Displays. Additionally VDO Marine offers a free VDO Marine MediaBox App for your smartphone so the MediaBox can be used as a stand-alone radio.

  • Bluetooth audio player with 50 m range
  • USB input
  • Equalizer with volume control
  • Power amplifier 4x 28 W (D class)
  • NMEA 2000® certified
  • IPX5 protection rating
  • Operating temperature range -20 °C / +70 °C
  • Free VDO Marine MediaBox App

EngineBox

The EngineBox expands the possibilities of the NavBox for multi-engine applications or can be used as stand-alone when navigation information is not required. The EngineBox has a NMEA2000® and a J1939 CAN port. The EngineBox can also be used on older, completely analog engines, thanks to the analog input ports provided and designed for: RPM data, 0 – 400 Ω sensors and 4 – 20 mA sensors.

navsensor

EngineBox is available in 2 versions: Single Engine and Dual Engine. The Dual Engine version is designed with double frequency and resistive inputs. This allows customers simplified installation wiring, reduced commissioning time and the required installation space.

The EngineBox has to be set up using an intuitive PC configuration tool making it easy for programming the inputs (delivered free of charge).

The EngineBox is designed to be installed also in hazardous areas (for additional information please check the technical characteristics described in the installation manual).

  • Analog to NMEA 2000® gateway
  • J1939 to NMEA 2000® gateway
  • 2 models for single engine and dual engine configurations
  • Compact design
  • Status LED
  • 1x J1939 (2x J1939 Dual Engine)
  • 1x M12 5 pins NMEA 2000®
  • 1x Input 0–4 kHz for RPM (2 inputs with Dual Engine Model)
  • 4x Inputs 0 – 400 Ω (up to 8 Inputs with Dual Engine Model)
  • 2x Inputs 4 – 20 mA
  • 1x Input 0 – 5 V (2 Inputs with Dual Engine Model)

NavSensor

The multifunctional AcquaLink® NavSensor is the gem of all sensors. The inertial sensor complements the inbuilt satellite GPS receiver module to provide accurate readings of the speed of travel as well as the pitch & roll (up and down). Compass readings can be displayed electronically thanks to the embeded compass, which also facilitate course corrections in electronic autopilots. The barometer and air temperature sensors are early indicators of forthcoming weather conditions.

  • NMEA 2000® certified
  • IPX6 extended protection rating
  • GPS Module: Position, time, boats vector, signal quality, satellites
  • Compass: + / -40° tilt angle, < 2° accuracy, alarm (rapid field strength change, tilt angle overrun, undervoltage condition)
  • Barometer: Air pressure, air temperature sensor
  • Operating temperature range -20 °C / +70 °C

Analogue Sensors

Sensors for electronically controlled safety functions are the eyes, ears and the antenna of a modern-day high-tech vehicle. Nothing escapes them – neither the smallest temperature deviation inside cooling systems, nor the monitoring of engine and gear oil temperature. Intelligent safety systems are inconceivable without them. Over the past 60 years, we have continuously refined and perfected our sensors that now have reached an utmost degree of precision.

Sumlog® Transducer

The Sumlog® Transducer is required to measure boat speed through water. The Sumlog® includes two paddle wheels which can be exchanged to match the speed range of the boat, thereby supporting speeds from 0 to 18 or up to 50 knots respective of the installed paddle wheel. The NavBox supports up to two Sumlogs® which can be directly connected to the dedicated Sumlog® ports using a 4 pin M12 connector extension cable.

Other Analogue Sensors Include:

  • Analog Wind Sensors
  • Rudder Angle Sensors
  • Fuel Level Sensors
  • Deep-Pipe Level Sensors
  • Fresh water level sensors
  • Waste Water Level Sensors
  • Ammeter Shunts
  • Electronic Pressure Sensors
