NMEA 2000 Bridge – YDNB-07

NMEA2000 Bridge YDNB-07 Contents

The NMEA 2000 Bridge – YDNB-07 from Yacht Devices connects two physical NMEA2000 networks into a single network. The bridge allows exchanging of messages between both networks and allows filtering and processing of transmitted messages.

Features of the NMEA 2000 Bridge – YDNB-07 are:

  • Bypass the physical limits of normal NMEA2000 networks. The bridge allows more than the standard 50 physical devices to connect to a single network, expandable out to 250 devices with multiple bridges.
  • Isolate devices from each other. Using some basic script code you can filter all or selected messages from a separate subnet.
  • Ensure proper equipment functions. Correct data like transducer offset or “delete” invalid data in devices which are only partially operational.
  • Diagnose malfunctions. The bridge can record network messages and debug data from custom programs loaded into the MicroSD card on the bridge.
  • Safely connect devices. Connect devices to the network which do not meet NMEA 2000 standards.
  • Create gateways. Create custom CAN networks based on operating at different baud speeds.
  • Powered from the NMEA 2000 network. No other power source is required.
Example of use of NMEA 2000 Bridge - YDNB-07

The Bridge contains a built-in compiler of a simple programming language. You can create programs on any device with a MicroSD socket and a text editor, and upload programs to the Bridge with MicroSD card.

Schematic of NMEA 2000 Bridge - YDNB-07

The cable between the two interfaces of a Bridge is 0.5 m (20 in.) long. The power consumption of CAN1 is 38 mA and of CAN2 is 13 mA.
