Going large

UK-based marine electronics specialists, Actisense, has launched a larger version of its popular Self-contained Boat Network.

The device – named SBN-2 – gives boat owners and installers the ability to set up a completely “Plug & Play” NMEA2000® network with a complete NMEA2000® backbone in a single device, simply requiring a power connection. With built in termination resistors, the SBN-2 provides 8 NMEA2000® drops, meaning that up to 8 NMEA2000® devices – including those from the company’s own award-winning range – can be connected.

Phil Whitehurst, CEO of Actisense, said, “When we released the SBN-1 a couple of years ago, it came with 4 NMEA2000® drops. Our engineering team has been working on ways to give our customers the ability to connect even more devices to their vessels. We are really pleased to unveil the SBN-2 which in effect doubles that capacity for up to 8 NMEA2000® connections – particularly ideal for smaller boats. The SBN-2 is a great low-cost option, is highly durable and is quick and easy to install.”

The SBN-2 is manufactured using ruggedised, watertight and flame-retardant over-moulded housing, making it ideal for potentially wet and harsh marine environments. It comes with an integrated EMI shield and a 3 metre UL-Rated power cable.

The SBN-2 is available for pre-order now via Actisense worldwide distribution partners - over 80 distributors in 40 countries worldwide.
