The MD36/8 is a solid-state digital NMEA to STEP (Analogue S-Type) Interface, for applications where there is a need for low power retransmission of digital NMEA heading data to legacy STEP equipment. Designed as a converter of NMEA 0183 (IEC61162-1) compliant digital transmission, to a DC STEP (S-Type) transmission at 24 V, 35 V or 50 V dc to within 1/6° with no errors.
Supplied for bulkhead mounting as standard, the MD36/8 offers a compact NMEA to STEP (S-Type) Interface solution for locations where available space is limited.
Constructed in a robust die-cast aluminium enclosure and finished in RAL9005 Jet Black fine texture powder coat paint, the MD36/8 is designed to complement existing marine navigation equipment.
