Please Note: Updated Monday, May 26, 2020 We 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.
Advanced technology for safe, reliable and simple connection of your NMEA 0183, RS422 and RS232 devices to your PC’s USB port.
The USG-2 converts a USB port into a bi-directional serial port suitable for connecting to a marine standard NMEA 0183 data bus.
It provides a far safer connection when compared to standard USB to serial converters.
Electrical isolation is provided by the ISO-DriveTM output and OPTO-isolated input making installation simple and free from ground loops.
The input uses the Actisense OPTO-isolation circuitry to protect any connected equipment from the most common system faults. The input can receive very low level signals that are often too small to be received by a PC serial port.
The high quality, shielded USB lead included with the USG-2 makes connection to a PC simple while providing a high level of water protection when connected to the custom designed USB socket.
The pluggable screwless connector makes installation quick and easy, and the specifically designed DIN rail mount option ensures a reliable secure bulkhead mount for the USG-2.
Multiple LEDs make diagnosing connection issues quick and easy. The blue power LED Illuminates solid blue when the USB driver has successfully loaded and the USG-2 is powered, while a green (receive) LED and an orange (transmit) LED indicate whether data is present.
