Our devices are supplied with different types of NMEA 2000 connectors. Models with the suffix R at the end of model name are equipped with NMEA 2000 connectors compatible with Raymarine SeaTalk NG. Models with the suffix N are equipped with NMEA 2000 Micro Male connectors.

If you have Raymarine equipment, choose the SeaTalk NG connector (Fig. 2.). In the case of Garmin equipment, choose the NMEA 2000 Micro Male connector (Fig. 3.).
For other network types, choose the device with NMEA 2000 Micro Male connector, because all manufacturers have an adaptor cables from NMEA 2000 Micro to their proprietary connectors.
For example, to connect our device to a Simrad SimNet network (Fig. 4.) you can use an adaptor cable (SimNet Female — NMEA 2000 Micro Female, i.e. Navico part number 24006199).
