   NMEA Simulator (Incl. Demo for download)

Simulating NMEA sensors, either separately or as an integrated ship. All NMEA telegrams can be transmitted on serial port , UDP or TCP/IP.

 The following sensors and telegrams are included 

  1. Positioning sensor 1    (GGA/GNS/GLL/RMC/VTG/GSA/GSV/GST/DTM/ZDA)
  2. Positioning sensor 2    same
  3. Gyro/VRU 1              (THS/HDT/ROT/PRATT/PRDID)
  4. Gyro/VRU 2              same
  5. Speedlog                    (VHW/VBW/VDR)
  6. Echosounder              (DBT/DPT)
  7. Wind sensor               (MWV)
  8. ARPA radar               (TTM/TTD/TLB)

A low price Light version includes

  1. Positioning sensor 1    (GGA/GLL/RMC/VTG)
  2. Positioning sensor 2    not included
  3. Gyro/VRU 1              (HDT/ROT)
  4. Gyro/VRU 2              not included
  5. Speedlog                    (VHW/VBW/VDR)
  6. Echosounder              (DBT/DPT)
  7. Wind sensor               (MWV)
  8. ARPA radar               not included

NEW!        April 2018 v 4.00 - Implemented IEC 61162-450

                   Feb. 2016 v 3.00 - Implemented UDP Interface

                   Dec. 2015 v 2.00 - Implemented IEC 62388 Ed.2 test scenarios.

                                                  Setup of ship speed with aut. decrease at defined time. Aut. setup of 10 ARPA targets. Aut. pause at defined check Points.

                                                  Up to 50 additional Random controlled ARPA targets added.

Future plans - Implementing NMEA2000 / N2K. But first I need documentation from the NMEA Organisation. That can be purchased for the neat sum of  $ 3.500,- for non-members! It's acceptable that the NMEA Organisation doesn't give it away for free, but with that stiff price level, the 'open' NMEA2000 standard is not open in reality for hobbyists/small companies.

However, until NMEA2000 has been implemented, NMEA2000 can be indirectly simulated with use of a NGW-1 gateway from Actisense. The NGW-1 will convert simulated NMEA0183 to NMEA2000 PGN's and feed into a NMEA2000 network. See Actisense NGW-1
