NMEA Buffer 2S12

NMEA Buffer has been designed to distribute NMEA or other RS422 signals from one transmitter up to 12 listeners. Transmitted signal is galvanically isolated from power supply and all listeners. Unit can operate with signal speed up to 230400 bps and power supply range from 9 to 36 VDC. Unit has possibility to connect two independent NMEA transceivers (in example two GPS receivers) and distribute manually selected signal source to all listeners – optional switch connection is necessary. Device has 3 functional modes: Dual Independent Transmission - Dual buffer 1 to 6, Single Input Transmission - Single buffer 1 to 12 and Selectable Dual Input mode - Single buffer 1 to 12 with selectable input great for GPS distribution.
