Actisense has released a new NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway with data logging technology that has the ability to record navigational and engine data.

The new W2K-1 can transmit NMEA 2000 data using TCP and UPD while also offering support for conversion to NMEA 0183 and also features a voyage data recorder (VDR) enabling the device to log a wide variety of vessel data such as position, speed, course, depth, windspeed and engine data.


Phil Whitehurst, chief executive of Actisense, said that the device was unique. “Whilst there are several Wi-Fi Gateways on the market, we are thrilled to be leading the way when it comes to data logging through Wi-Fi,” he said.

“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," he added.

Analyse performance

All data received from the vessel is logged on the W2K-1's internal micro SD card, which can hold approximately 16 days of data. This data can then be used for later analysis of the voyage allowing race boat owners to analyse performance following a competition or boat owners to create digital logbooks, diagnose network issues or simply share their trip online.

First revealed as a prototype at the METSTRADE 2018, the W2K-1 has been in development for 18 months with fine-tuning based on customer feedback from 45 different countries.

Actisense will be exhibiting at Seawork in June on stand PY61.
