Maretron, LLP has announced the introduction of several new products that expand the possible ways to monitor or control devices on NMEA 2000 networks.
IPG100 (Internet Protocol Gateway) lets you connect Maretron black boxes (MBB100’s), Maretron touch screens (DSM800’s), PC’s, Mac’s, tablets, or smartphones to an NMEA 2000 network so you can monitor and control your vessel using Maretron’s N2KView software. The conventional way of viewing NMEA 2000 information is with a display on the vessel that is directly connected to an NMEA 2000 network, but with the IPG100, you are not limited to direct connected displays. With the IPG100, you can use any device running N2KView software to monitor and control your vessel from onboard or ashore.
MBB100 (Maretron Black Box Vessel Monitoring and Control) is a dedicated processing unit that comes preloaded with Maretron’s N2KView vessel monitoring and control software. Unlike a PC that allows any software to be loaded, the MBB100 runs only N2KView software, making it extremely stable and dedicated to monitoring and controlling your vessel.
DSM800 (Vessel Monitoring and Control Indoor Display) is a dedicated touch screen that comes preloaded with Maretron’s N2KView vessel monitoring and control software. The N2KView software allows you to configure as many favorite screens as you want with exactly the information you want to see. Although not suitable for outdoor applications, the DSM800 provides an extremely simple touch interface for observing and controlling critical systems from inside the vessel. All three new products, IPG100, MBB100, and DSM800, are available for shipping to Maretron ‘s trade customers by February 15, 2011.
