Actisense collaborates with Raymarine

Actisense has collaborated with marine electronics manufacturer Raymarine to maximise NMEA data efficiency with its Pathfinder system.

The Actisense PRO-MUX-2 was selected as the baseline infrastructure for the Pathfinder’s Data Collection Unit, with eight NMEA 0183 inputs and six NMEA 0183 outputs along with a high-speed ethernet connection.

Custom work was carried out to add functionality including alarm relays to ensure every element of Raymarine’s requirement was met, supporting its rollout into the commercial marine and SOLAS environment.

“The Pathfinder Radar launch is helping us disrupt the commercial marine market, with an IMO compliant, intuitive-to-operate system,” said director of Navigational Solutions for Raymarine, Andy Murray.

“Having worked with Actisense successfully on previous projects, we selected their PRO-MUX as the core of our data interfacing solution the Pathfinder DCU.

“The work we have completed with Actisense ensures we have an extremely flexible interfacing solution at the core of our Pathfinder Radar ensuring that our system is easy to install for both retrofits and newbuild vessels.”

Actisense CEO, Phil Whitehurst, added: “We were delighted to be contracted by Raymarine to help create the Data Collection Unit for their Pathfinder system.

“We saw the system on display at Workboat in New Orleans last year, and we were immensely impressed with its capabilities.

“No doubt, this will solve a number of specific challenges facing commercial vessels. We’re proud to have been selected to work with this global electronics giant.”

Actisense has previously worked with Raymarine on projects including the deployment of its NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 conversion technology.
