Actisense launch latest PRO Range product at Seawork International

Multi-award-winning NMEA specialists Actisense has officially launched the latest addition to their PRO range at Seawork International in Southampton.

Reaching out to the world’s commercial marine market, Actisense in Poole has officially launched their sophisticated PRO-MUX-1 at the 2018 Seawork International Exhibition in Southampton. The PRO-MUX-1 is a Professional Multiplexer designed to provide isolation on all inputs and outputs so that connected devices safely avoid hazardous ground loops, the number 1 cause of product failure in NMEA 0183 networks.

Taking place in Southampton, Seawork International is Europe's leading commercial maritime exhibition and conference. Exhibiting at the show, Danny Thrasher, Actisense Head of Sales & Marketing and Owen Vachell Technical Support Engineer & Training Coordinator were on hand to encourage new leads and answer any questions relating to the new product.

The PRO-MUX-1 has eight NMEA 0183 inputs can be routed to any of the six NMEA 0183 outputs, providing a highly customisable network. A bi-directional serial port and an Ethernet port also allow for simple configuration and diagnostics using Actisense software.

Further PRO-MUX-1 features include a DIN rail mounting system for security in high vibration environments plus 2-part pluggable connectors enabling news devices to be installed into the network without unmounting the PRO-MUX-1. The device’s configuration tool is also accessible via any popular web browser and allows the user to finely tune the exact data available on each output.

Mr Thrasher said: “Seawork provided us with an excellent opportunity to launch our new PRO-MUX-1. We’ve been attending the show for three consecutive years now and it was great to meet with many new marine industry representatives from across Europe and beyond.’’

Mr Vachell said: “We are pleased to be launching the latest in our PRO range. Last year’s show gave us an invaluable opportunity to showcase the prototype of the PRO-MUX-1 and we have since been able to gather feedback from industry fellows to help us carefully hone the device. It now provides additional features, which will maintain our reputation for practicality and reliability.’’
