On show for the first time will be the brand new MUX100, a two-channel NMEA multiplexer. The device features two ports - one configured for 4800 baud and the other for 38400 baud - which allow the two data streams to be combined. The MUX100 can also extract GPS data from the high-speed port and scale it down to 4800 baud for use with DSC VHF radios - suited well to where an AIS transponder is fitted to a yacht, saving the need for a separate GPS for the VHF radio.
Also on show for the first time is Digital Yacht's range of Adapt marine PCs, in light of the introduction of Windows 8.1, with interfaces suitable for high-power WiFi internet access and NMEA 2000 navigation networks. The mini PC connects directly to a yacht's battery system, operating from 8-19V DC. The product has been developed with a view for use alongside graphics-intense 3D navigation programmes, but also can be configured as a WiFi server for remote display apps, such as a tablet or iPad, on board.
Also on show with Digital Yacht will be the recently launched GPS150 DualNav GPS/GLONASS positioning sensor (combining a 50-channel GPS with GLONASS), the GV30 Combination AIS-GPS Atenna for Class B AIS Transponders, the PilotLINK wireless AIS device, the Digital Deep Sea S1000 AIS Smart SART and the Digital Yacht WLF450 WiFi system.
