NMEA (Stand ENT.02) Seminar Schedule at METS 2012
NMEA Standards Update- NEW OneNet and NMEA 2000
Tuesday November 13: 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Steve Spitzer, NMEA Technical Director will introduce the new NMEA OneNet Ethernet standard to all interested METS attendees, exhibitors, and members of the press. This new standard is designed to transfer NMEA 2000 messages over Ethernet in a standardized message format. New improvements and additions to both the NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 interface standards will also be reviewed, along with NMEA installer training and the NMEA 0400 Installation Standard.
Tuesday November 13: 1:00 – 3:00 PM
The NMEA has invited key manufacturers to lead an informative discussion on AIS technology. These AIS experts will go over the new and exciting advancements and improvements to both Class A and Class B AIS Systems. All METS attendees and exhibitors are invited to learn how AIS increases vessel safety, reduces VHF traffic, and improves situational awareness in all sectors of the marine industry.
NMEA 2000 Connect fest
Wednesday Nov 14 1PM-5PM
NMEA 2000 Connect Fest is a "LIVE” Demonstration of the NMEA 2000 "OPEN” Industry Networking Standard. Many manufacturers will be interacting and demonstrating the interoperability of their products talking the same language in a network environment. The NMEA 2000 Connect Fest will be a half day event beginning at 1PM Wednesday November 14. Come at your leisure to see this LIVE demonstration. This will be THE opportunity to have direct conversations with manufacturers who have adopted and developed products using NMEA 2000 protocol. You will also have hands-on experience with the NMEA 2000 cable and connector system, saving weight, time of installation and insuring future vessel expansion. More than 40 marine organizations have invested time and resources to create the NMEA 2000 based on CAN (Controller Area Network). The NMEA Connect fest will demonstrate and answer the hard questions of hidden costs, ease of installation, simplicity, configurability and scalability. The NMEA 2000 network is an open plug and play system, plugging or unplugging products with no downtime on the network will be demonstrated.
CHIRP Sounder Technology
Thursday Nov 15 10AM-12PM
In the marine electronics industry, CHIRP (compressed high-impact radar pulse) sounders and transducers are changing the way people find fish. Here, we’ve invited key manufacturers to lead an informative discussion on these technologies, which can produce more than five times the resolution of the traditional sounder, for a much more detailed picture. Join us for firsthand information on these new electronics.
Broadband Radar Technology
Thursday Nov 15 1-3PM
Broadband radar is unlike anything else on the recreational boating market. These breakthrough radar solutions provide superior target detection and separation, ease of operation, and a new level of navigational safety to a wide range of boats. The NMEA has invited key manufacturers to lead an informative discussion on this technology. With its clear imaging and advanced technology, this revolutionary new radar technology eliminates main bang, provides closer zoom ranges, and has no radiation hazard.
