METS ‘Sneak Preview’ reveals first Wi-Fi Gateway with Data Logging
Actisense has revealed further information regarding their revolutionary Wi-Fi Gateway – the first device of it’s kind to enable data logging – at METSTRADE 2018 in Amsterdam
During a ‘sneak preview’ on the first day of METSTRADE in Amsterdam, market leading marine electronics brand and award-winning NMEA specialists, Actisense, provided further insight into their groundbreaking NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway, the W2K-1, which is set to be released in early 2019.
Actisense’s WiFi gateway, the W2K-1, is the first product of its kind available on the market which offers a WiFi gateway and a voyage data recorder (VDR) in a single device. No other product on the market can claim both of these features as part of the same package.
Like other devices on the market, the W2K-1, can transmit NMEA 2000 data using TCP and UPD while also offering support for conversion to NMEA 0183. However, what makes the W2K-1 stand out over its competitors is the Voyage Data Recorder. This means the device has the ability to log navigation and engine data.
There are many benefits to this functionality for a range of different uses. For example, race boat owners can analyse performance of their vessel following a competition, whilst boat owners can easily create digital logbooks, diagnose network issues or simply share their trip online.
Those who visited Actisense at Stand 03.132 were able to view a prototype of the innovative device and gain further exclusive information on its capabilities.
CEO of Actisense, Phil Whitehurst, said: “Whilst there are several Wi-Fi Gateway’s on the market, we are thrilled to be leading the way when it comes to data logging through Wi-Fi. As the way people consume technology continues to advance it’s important that our marine electronics not only respond to but also anticipates these trends.
“Our Wi-Fi Gateway will enable you to log important information so it can be reviewed on your smartphone or PC when most convenient for you. We were delighted to provide a sneak preview during our 18th year at METS and have been really pleased with the initial response to this unique technology.”
Held annually in Amsterdam, METSTRADE attracts thousands of visitors and is the world’s largest leisure marine equipment trade show. Based on the UK’s south coast, Actisense has established an enviable world-wide reputation within the specialist field of marine electronics. This has been achieved through the design and manufacture of sophisticated marine electronic equipment. Their award-winning NMEA products are exported all over the globe.
