The Actisense EMU-1 is a specialised analogue to NMEA 2000 Gateway which converts data from analogue engine senders into NMEA 2000. The EMU-1 enables NMEA 2000 display devices to monitor the engine on a vessel.

The EMU-1 has a PC based configuration tool that allows the settings inside the EMU-1 to be changed to best suit the engine it is working with, making it a flexible solution for many engine makes and models. Capable of measuring a wide range of engine parameters, the EMU-1 reports how the engine is operating and shares the information across the network.

Designed to simplify the conversion of analogue engine parameters (Tach, temperature, pressure and RPM) into NMEA 2000 engine parameter PGNs, the EMU-1  simplifies processes and reduces the number of input/output wires required at each engine.   

The two-part screw terminal system allows easy connection to an engine wiring harness and a quick 'plug and release' from the EMU-1 terminal strip.
For a dual engine installation one EMU-1 can be used if the engines share common ground

The customised case ensure that the electronics are sealed while allowing quick access to the electrical connections. It is recommended that an Actisense NGT-1 NMEA 2000 PC Interface is available for every EMU-1 installation. The NGT-1 can be used to update the Firmware, connect the Configuration Tool and display data on a PC for diagnostic and information purposes, using NMEA Reader. Please visit the NGT-1 page for product details.

An optional DIN rail mounting kit is also available. The kit is suitable for use with a top hat rail, type EN 50 022 or a G section rail, type EN 50 035. Please order the DIN rail kit using part number: DIN-KIT-1.
