The NMEA Connect Plus Gateway connects all the Calypso sensor variants to an NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 network as required and translates your wind data to the desired output interface.

The NMEA Connect Plus Gateway connects all the Calypso sensor variants to an NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 network as required and translates your wind data to the desired output interface.

Moreover, the Bluetooth (Version 5.1) transmission allows up to two Bluetooth devices to be connected at the same time within 50m (line of sight) of the Gateway, making the NMEA Gateway the perfect solution to access your wind data simultaneously on several Bluetooth devices whether tablets, smartphones, smart watches, or PC’s etc. There is a wide range of ‘free to market’ iOS or Android Apps available.

Wi-Fi connection allows data to be additionally viewed using PC based software. This means several users can get wind data from the same wind meter via chart plotter/display, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi simultaneously.

The NCP is a remarkably simple device to install and use and is extremely versatile being available in 4 options ensuring you can connect easily to any NMEA chart plotter or display.

*Note W-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options vary with NMEA Gateway type, see below:

  • NCP BT 0183: Connects your Calypso Ultrasonic Portable Mini Wind Meter Anemometer and Calypso Ultrasonic Portable Solar Powered Wind Meter to an NMEA 0183 network. Additionally, it sends the data through Bluetooth and allows you to connect up to 2 Bluetooth devices at the same time.
  • NCP BT 2000: Connects your Calypso Ultrasonic Portable Mini Wind Meter Anemometer and Calypso Ultrasonic Portable Solar Powered Wind Meter to an NMEA 2000 network. Additionally, it sends the data through Bluetooth and allows you to connect up to 2 Bluetooth devices at the same time.
  • NCP_ W2000: Connects your Calypso Ultra-Low Power Wired Ultrasonic Wind Meter to an NMEA 2000 network. Additionally, it sends the data through Bluetooth and allows you to connect up to 2 Bluetooth devices at the same time.
  • NCP_ High-End: Connects to any of the Calypso sensors, receives wind data from the sensor and converts it to either NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 as required. Allows Bluetooth & Wi-Fi connectivity onwards from the NMEA Gateway.
