NMEA 0183 Wi-Fi Router
NMEA 0183 Wi-Fi Router YDWR-02
The Router is a smart NMEA 0183 and SeaTalk multiplexer which also allows you to see data from marine devices on a PC or smartphone. With it, you get marine network data including vessel course, speed, position, wind speed and direction, water depth, AIS messages from vessels and aircraft and other navigation data in popular software applications.
The Router has four physical NMEA 0183 ports (four inputs and four outputs) with configurable speed from 300 to 115200 baud. This allows organization of data exchange between multiple devices with different speeds. Multiple physical listeners can be connected to the Router's outputs.
SeaTalk is a proprietary binary protocol of Raymarine company. It allows co-existence of multiple devices on the bus, so the Router has only one SeaTalk port. A bi-directional converter between SeaTalk and NMEA 0183 supports all known SeaTalk datagrams, including autopilot. This allows controlling SeaTalk autopilots from NMEA 0183 chart plotters and marine apps.
The Router creates its own Wi-Fi network (with range of about 30 meters in open spaces) or it can be connected to an existing Wi-Fi network. The Router has three network data servers which can be configured for UDP or TCP network protocols. For UDP protocol, the number of clients (physical devices or software applications) is unlimited. In the routing settings, you can select one or more outputs (physical port or TCP/UDP server) for any data source, including the same port or server from which data is received.
