Actisense launched tits Wi-Fi Gateway, the W2K-1, which also records a variety of marine vessel data.

Actisense released the W2K-1, its NMEA 2000 Wi-Fi Gateway with data logging technology that has the ability to record navigational and engine data.

The W2K-1 can transmit NMEA 2000 data using TCP and UPD while also offering support for conversion to NMEA 0183. In addition, the device has the ability to log a wide variety of vessel data such as position, speed, course, depth, wind speed and engine data.

All data received from the vessel is logged on the W2K-1’s internal micro SD card, which can hold approximately 16 days of data. This data can then be used for later analysis of the voyage.

This logging functionality can be beneficial for a range of different uses. For example, race boat owners can analyse performance of their vessel following a competition, whilst boat owners can easily create digital logbooks, diagnose network issues or simply share their trip online.
