The MiniPlex-3 Series NMEA multiplexers comprises a range of advanced NMEA multiplexers which combines data from multiple navigation instruments.
Through an advanced filtering and routing system, this data can be sent to other navigation instruments and to computers, tablets and smartphones.
A bi-directional SeaTalk1 interface enables conversion between SeaTalk1 data and NMEA 0183 sentences. This conversion works both ways, allowing the MiniPlex-3 to replace Raymarine’s SeaTalk-NMEA bridge (E85001).
MiniPlex-3 models with an NMEA 2000 interface (-N2K suffix) connect directly to an NMEA 2000 backbone and convert between NMEA 2000 PGN’s, NMEA 0183 sentences and SeaTalk1 datagrams in all directions.
All data is available on one or more computer interfaces in NMEA 0183 format. NMEA 2000 PGN’s and SeaTalk datagrams for which no NMEA 0183 equivalent exists, can be converted to special NMEA 0183 sentences, allowing software developers to support processing of raw NMEA 2000 and SeaTalk data.
Each and every port on a MiniPlex-3 multiplexer is galvanically isolated from the internal electronics and from every other port. This guarantees that no ground loops will be created when adding a MiniPlex-3 to a navigation network. It also ensures a trouble free connection to any type of NMEA 0183 port of any device.
The MiniPlex-3 multiplexers are all functionally identical but differ in type and number of computer interfaces.
Replacement for E85001 PC/SeaTalk/NMEA 0183 Interface Module – The Raymarine E85001 PC/SeaTalk/NMEA 0183 Interface Module was retired several years ago. Raymarine has not introduced a replacement for this device. The Shipmodul 1131, 1132, 1133, 1135, 1136 and 1137 have a bi-directional SeaTalk 1 interface which enables conversion between SeaTalk1 data and NMEA 0183 sentences. This conversation works both way, allowing the MiniPlex-3 units to replace Raymarine’s discontinued SeaTalk – NMEA bridge E85001.
