Communication Interface CI – NMEA 2000┬«

Introduction to the topic

The ┬╗Communication Interface CI – NMEA 2000┬«┬ź is a gateway for integrating fpCAN-equipped Fischer Panda generators with an NMEA 2000┬« network. The ┬╗Communication Interface CI – NMEA 2000┬«┬ź converts fpCAN messages to NMEA 2000┬« messages so you can monitor your Fischer Panda Generator with NMEA 2000┬« displays. The ┬╗Communication Interface CI – NMEA 2000┬«┬ź is certified by NMEA 2000┬« (https://www.nmea.org).
