The EMU-1 and engine gauges use the same power supply.
Based on customer feedback, this combination of network and hardware operates well for sending NMEA 0183 navigation data to iNavX.
One way to format is using the SD card association's formatter utility at https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4
PDF document covers: differences between NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000; using a multiplexer to join instruments and sensors to NMEA 2000; using an individual adapter per device; SeaTalk NG to NMEA 2000 cabling; PC software interfacing with NMEA 0183.
Use the EMU-1 Configuration Tool to inform the NMEA 2000 network of the PGN instances you have designated for each EMU-1 device on the network.
NMEA 0183 networking points to consider with diagrams.
Wiring is discussed and illustrated at http://www.actisense.com/products/nmea-0183/opto-4/downloads-opto-4.html?download=267:opto-4-quick-start-guide
As the Actisense NGW-1 firmware is revised over time, the NMEA conversions it is able to do expand; see the lastest conversions documentation at http://www.actisense.com/products/nmea-2000/ngw-1/downloads-ngw1
Actisense EMU-1 (firmware verfsion v0.070), when connected to a petrol engine, needs the tach inputs originating at the alternator.
Mouting screws and pluggable screws are used for the EMU-1's physical connections. An option rail mounting is available.

Exact details of wiring a given NMEA 0183 product to a computer's DB-9 serial port may vary, but diagrams in this article are a useful guide for improvising your wiring plan.
NGW-1-ISO-AIS units will convert the core AIS data received via radio but does not convert DSC sentences.
Actisense DST-2 features and notes on the DST Smart Calibration Utility.
A DST-2's output of temperature and speed may be tested using an Actisene USG-1 connection to NMEA Reader on a Windows computer.
The Bad Elf product user guide describes how to pair the GPS module with an iOS device. This article slightly expands on those steps.
Information about how best to connect NMEA 0183 or 2000 to a computer.
To see the Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 Device Manager, press the Windows logo key + X, then click Device Manager. The Ports (COM & LPT) branch (if present) lists various serial communications ports (physical or virtual) listed by number and with names that often indicate what hardware the port is communicating with.
This solution really applies to nearly any app you may wish to find and download from the iTunes App Store. However, being able to get an app at all depends on having a goof functioning Apple iTunes Store account with a known User ID, an adequate Internet connection, and perhaps other factors. If you cannot create or cannot login to a iTunes Store account, or having problems using the store, then you probably need to get help from Apple at: https://www.apple.com/lae/support/itunes/.
Get the ConnectScale app in the iTunes Store, under the Sports category. Once it is installed, go to the iOS Settings icon to turn on Bluetooth for the device. After that, enter the ConnectSacle app's Settings section, scroll down to the Bluetooth row, and tap to search for the the ConnectScale hardware (assumed to be turned on at this moment).
