NMEA 2000

NMEA 2000

NMEA 2000 is the marine standard for data communication between marine instruments. NMEA 2000 connects multiple instruments together (Sensors, Sonar, GPS, and Multi-Function Displays etc), regardless of brand for the purpose of sharing and/or displaying user selectable data with any or all other display instruments installed on the NMEA 2000 network.

FUSION has introduced NMEA 2000 connectivity to the new 700 Series and 205 Series Marine Entertainment Systems. Adding NMEA 2000 connectivity is the logical progression of the FUSION True-Marine™ standard and further cements FUSION as the market leader in marine entertainment.

NMEA 2000 Connectivity

NMEA 2000 Connectivity

Connecting your 700 Series to a NMEA 2000 Network requires additional cabling. Configiuration is dependant on the FUSION marine stereo and FUSION wired remote control being incorporated into the network. We recommend you have a professional install your system, but if you'd like to give it a go yourself we've included installation cable diagrams for each configuration.

The FUSION NMEA 2000 mico connectors and T-Connectors follow the NMEA 2000 standard and are compatible with other NMEA 2000 micro connectors, cables and supported NMEA 2000 devices.
