The iKonvert NMEA 2000 to NMEA 0183 Gateway/Converter is an intelligent and flexible gateway. Therefore allowing for new NMEA2000 equipment to talk to legacy NMEA0183 equipment. Conversions are bi-directional. For example, you may want to get the data from older NMEA0183 sensors on to your NMEA2000 network. Another reason being you have a new NMEA2000 only MFD and want GPS and Navigation data sent to your older NMEA0183 VHF and Autopilot. iKonvert can be used to accurately and intelligently carry out the required data conversions.
Real life applications could include connecting together a number of different makes and models of equipment plus many more. iKonvert has been designed to satisfy as many of these situations as possible. As a result, we have built in a simple but effective mode selection method, via a set of DIP switches inside iKonvert. Just remove two screws, open the iKonvert box and select the mode you need with a small screwdriver. The next time iKonvert powers up, it will automatically carry out the conversions you selected.
