Actisense launch revolutionary Wi-Fi Gateway With Data Logging

Industry Database

Marine electronics specialist, Actisense has released the W2K-1, its highly anticipated NMEA 200 Wi-Fi Gateway with data logging technology that has the ability to record navigational and engine data – a feature that is completely unique in the market place.

Like other devices on the market, the W2K-1 can transmit NMEA 2000 data using TCP and UPD while also offering support for conversion to NMEA 0183. However, what makes the W2K-1 stand out is the voyage data recorder (VDR) which gives the device the ability to log a wide variety of vessel data such as position, speed, course, depth, windspeed and engine data.

All data received from the vessel is logged on the WK2-1’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.

Phil Whitehurst, CEO of Actisense, says, “Whilst there are several Wi-Fi Gateway’s on the market, we are thrilled to be leading the way when it comes to data logging through Wi-Fi. As the way people consume technology continues to advance it’s important that our marine electronics not only respond to but also anticipates these trends.”

Lesley Keets, COO of Actisense, says “There has been plenty of anticipation for the launch of the W2K-1 from our customers. We’re so pleased to see this device launch and hope it proves useful as both a Wi-Fi gateway and a data logging device.”
