The Actisense EMU-1 is a gateway that converts data from a single analogue engine sender into NMEA 2000 sentences, enabling NMEA 2000 display devices to monitor the engine on a vessel.

Using the PC based configuration tool to adjust the EMU-1 to best suit to the connected engine, the conversion of analogue engine parameters (Tach, temperature, pressure, and RPM) into NMEA 2000 PGNs becomes simplified. Less input/output wires required at each engine and less time spent configuring each engine parameter!

A two-part screw terminal system allows easy connection or disconnection from the EMU-1 terminal strip.
