NMEA 2000 abbreviated to NMEA2k or N2K and standardized as IEC 61162-3, is a plug-and-play communications standard used for connecting marine sensors and display units within ships and boats. Communication runs at 250 kb-per-second. Electrically NMEA 2000 is compatible with the CANBus used on road vehicles and DeviceNet fieldbus cable specifications. Of NMEA 2000, CABLEFORCE have developed the N2K Trunk-line (15AWG+18AWG) and drop-line 22AWG+24AWG cable and connectors, includes: M12 cable and panel receptacles, 7/8" Mini cable and panel receptacles and the 120 ohm terminal resistor connector. During the designing stage we have taken following factors into consideration, such as waterproof, harsh temperature shocking, hydrolysis resistant, oil resistant, anti-chemical, corrosion resistance, UV resistance, abrasion resistance, plug mating force and endurance performance.
● Cable length can be customized
● Panel connector (receptacle) have soldering and PCB contacts option
● Protection degree: IP67 , IP68
● Temperature range: -40°C ~ 80°C, 125°C
The Multi-port and T-Connectors are used to connect a NMEA 2000 device to the NMEA 2000 backbone, it is an adaptor or splitter between the Trunk line and Drop line. The T-Connector splits wires into 2 separate connectors, allowing installation of two single-channel input or output devices to each port of hardwired distribution box. Connectors are available with parallel circuits, which allow input or output signals to run or trigger devices simultaneously.
● 3, 4, 5 poles are available
● Operating voltage 250V-AC/ 60V, current 4A
● Temperature range: -40°C ~ + 80°C
● Protection degree IP67
The Terminator, a M12 or 7/8 inch Mini connector molded with a 120 ohm resistor inside, located at each end of the NMEA 2000 backbone or DeviceNet Trunk Line or other devices cable termination. Proper termination helps ensure signal integrity across the entire length of the backbone.
● Connecting wiring can be customzied solution
● A, B, D Coding available
● Rated voltage：250V/60V/24V/12V, Rated current：4A
● Anti-vibration design
● IP67 protection degree
● 4 pole, 5 pole options
The NMEA 2000 network provides an open device-level control and information networking for easy devices adding. The (bulkhead) panel mount connectors either soldered with single wires or with PCB solder Pins, played significant roles in signal or data Input/Output connecting, it provide quick connection between the Devices and drop-line cables.
● Soldering and PCB contacts are available
● Protection degree IP67
● Temperature range: -40°C ~ + 125°C
● UL94-V0 flame retardant degree
● Ground Pin available for option
We do produced standard molded cables as well as tailor made cable plug assemblies that one can order directly out of a catalog. However, if you have an application that requires a unique or complex molded cable, we may have the solution for you. CABLEFORCE builds customized power fuse cable harness assemblies for industrial, commercial, medical and military applications. Our in-house design capability and molding equipment can accommodate low to high volume orders.
