Marine tech leaders focus on practicality with new Micro Gender Changer cable assemblies
Following significant customer and industry feedback, Actisense, world leaders in leisure marine electronics, have diversified their range of cable assemblies, adding further to their growing NMEA 2000® networking product range. The NMEA 2000 range of Micro cables and connectors, designed by Actisense, are fully certified and are available internationally from their network of distributors and dealers in over 25 countries.
Based on customer feedback, Actisense have addressed a problem commonly experienced by boat owners and operators of connecting two devices or cables which have the same gender of connector on an NMEA 2000 backbone. Actisense Gender Changers (A2K-GC) can be used between two connectors of the same gender, enabling installers to overcome this problem.
Manufactured using Actisense designed connectors and with 0.25m UL certified cable, the Gender Changers offer easy and secure connections. The Gender Changers are available in both male and female derivatives – A2K-GCF for the female to female cable assembly, and A2K-GCM for the converse male to male cable assembly.
Phil Whitehurst, managing director of Active Research Limited, commented: “We continually listen to the needs and desires of our customer base. This latest addition to our A2K range follows our engineering promise – to make the lives of our customers easier and safer.”
He continued: “The Actisense range of NMEA 2000 Micro connectors and cables has been designed using our specialist interconnect and NMEA knowledge. All Actisense products in the range are NMEA 2000 certified and fully compatible with other NMEA 2000 connectors and devices.”
All Actisense connectors follow the DeviceNet® standard.
