Product Description

OVERVIEW

The MD36/5/W is a Weatherproof, solid-state Synchro to Digital Interface. It converts an AC Synchro-transformer based transmission of ships heading from legacy equipment to a modern IEC 61162-1 (NMEA 0183) compliant Digital Transmission format.

Constructed in a robust die cast aluminium enclosure and finished in RAL7040 Window grey semi-gloss powder coat paint, the MD36/5/W is designed to complement other marine navigation equipment. Supplied for bulkhead mounting.

The MD36/5/W Weatherproof Synchro to NMEA Converter from MARINE DATA: Designed to be easy to install and simple to maintain.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Weatherproof to IP65
  • Low-power, high accuracy conversion
  • 115/90 – 400 Hz 1:1 (1 rev=360°) Synchro input
  • NMEA 0183 HDT sentence transmission; 4800 Baud / 10 messages per second

APPLICATIONS

  • The MD36/5/W is suitable for converting from a three-phase synchro transmission format to a digital NMEA 0183 (IEC 61162-1) transmission format. This is especially useful for retro-fitting legacy systems with modern equipment requiring a digital transmission of ships heading.
  • Suitable for installing in a damp environment
