are open for business as usual. Well, mostly usual. We hold and ship inventory locally as well as directly from manufacturers and from some marine distributors. We are doing our best to reflect inventory that is actually available, but inventory updates are slower than usual due to the changing work situations for all business. Additionally, we now have started to see longer than normal backorders from manufacturers. We recommend that if you need a product not to wait until the last minute to order, as inventory may be gone for a substantial period of time once they go on backorder. International orders may also take longer than normal to ship. We are sorry for these delays.
The Actisense OPTO-4 is a bi-directional NMEA 0183 (RS422) to RS232 interface cable which provides a safe method of connecting an NMEA 0183 system to a laptop PC or any device with a standard RS232 9-pin port. The isolation protects the connected device, so any potentially hazardous voltages on the NMEA 0183 bus do not cause damage to the PC hardware, offering the user complete peace of mind.
The OPTO-4 is particularly suited to 'noisy' or commercial environments, as it provides a complete solution for system builders who require all components to be shielded. As it is port-powered (from the PC), the OPTO-4 is quick and trouble-free to install.
The unique Actisense design integrates an over-moulded case for excellent water resistance and a small footprint to ease installation into tight spaces.
