PRODUCT CODE : ASS030520200
Use this cable to connect a Victron product with a VE.Can port to an NMEA2000 network.
The NMEA 2000 protocol is a plug-and-play communications standard used for connecting marine sensors and display units within ships and boats. Many Victron Energy products can be integrated into an NMEA 2000 network.
How To Connect To An NMEA 2000 Network
Multis, Multipluses and, Quattros use the VE.Bus to NMEA 2000 interface to connect these devices to an N2K network.
Combining With A Colour Control GX: Monitoring and controlling these products from both to an N2K network and a Colour Control GX is possible. In that case, do not connect the Colour Control GX to the VE.Bus network. Instead, connect it also to the N2K network. Use the VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable for that. The CCGX will read the MultiPlus or Quattro information via the N2K network.
BMV Battery Monitors:
Use to VE.Direct to NMEA2000 to connect to a BMV Battery Monitor to an N2K network. Combining this with a CCGX on the same network is possible. Connect the CCGX to the N2K network as well, Use the VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable for that. The CCGX will then read the BMV information via the N2K network.
VE.Can Products (Skylla-i, Skylla-IP44, Lynx shunt, Lynx Ion+Shunt And More)
Since the Victron VE.Can communication protocol is based on N2K, the following products can all be connected directly to an N2K Network. The only thing necessary is a plug converter: The VE.Can to NMEA2000 cable.
• Skylla-i 24V Battery Chargers.
• Skylla IP44 Battery Chargers.
• Lynx Shunt Battery Monitors.
• Lynx Ion+Shunt all models.
• BlueSolar MPPT Solar Chargers with VE.Can communications port.
Using the NMEA 2000 protocol, Victron equipment can be integrated into many multifunction displays. Such as the ones from Maretron, Raymarine, Garmin and many other brands. Note: working on a very large yacht featuring custom SCADA and PLC networks? Consider integrating the Victron system with Modbus TCP instead of NMEA 2000.
