Product Description 

The MP2x8i NMEA 0183 Buffer has been designed to distribute NMEA or other RS422 signals from one transmitter up to 8 listeners. The transmitted signal is galvanically isolated from the power supply and all listeners. The unit can operate with signal speed up to 230400 bps and power supply range from 9 to 36 VDC.

The MP2x8i has two operating modes: Dual Independent Transmission and Single Input Transmission with auto switching. When you are using the Single Input Transmission you are able to connect two independent NMEA transceivers and distribute the main signal to all listeners.

Key features:

  • Approved for marine use
  • 2 inputs / 8 outputs
  • Input / Output Speed up to 230400 bps
  • Isolated 9 - 36 VDC power supply
  • Reversed power supply polarity protection
  • Individually OPTO isolated input and output
  • Robust aluminum housing
  • Pluggable PCB terminal block - for easy access and installation
  • Two operation modes:
    1. Auto-switching mode: after input signal #1 is lost for 30 seconds, it will automatically switch to input signal #2
    2. Dual mode: Two independent buffers with 1-in and 4 -out signals
  • User friendly and reliable
  • Fully IEC60945 tested and certified
