NMEA 2000 Connector

NMEA 2000 (National Marine Electronics Association 2000) is a communication protocol standard for connecting marine electronic devices, such as GPS receivers, autopilots, wind speed and direction sensors, depth sonar, and other types of sensors and controllers. This protocol allows these devices to share data such as navigation, location, depth, speed, wind speed and direction, etc.



NMEA2000 Cable for Marine Electronics Network



The NMEA 2000 connector is the physical interface used to connect NMEA 2000 devices to the network. They come in specific shapes and sizes, are designed to prevent incorrect insertion, and provide a waterproof and vibration-resistant interface. They are usually five-pin connectors, corresponding to the five lines of the NMEA 2000 protocol: CAN High, CAN Low, Power, Ground, and Shield.



These connectors may be micro or medium, depending on the needs of the equipment and installation. Micro connectors are typically used on small boats and personal watercraft, while medium connectors are used on larger boats and commercial vessels.
