MicroNet is a wireless sensor data transmission method supported by some Raymarine sensors and displays, such as the T120 masthead wind transducer and the Log + Echosounder system in conjunction with the Marine TackTick T100 display. Raymarine also offers a gateway called Micro-Talk that can convert data from the wireless MicroNet to SeaTalk NG.… Continue reading
Raymarine SeaTalk NG
Fig.: SeaTalk NG connection technology
With SeaTalk NG there is a more powerful successor to SeaTalk, which is based on the CAN bus and has limited compatibility with NMEA2000. With the fairly clear and color-coded connection technology of SeaTalk NG, Raymarine has managed to provide backwards compatibility with SeaTalk, which also supports older devices. The disadvantage, however, is the high price for the proprietary connection technology.… Continue reading
Fig.: SeaTalk connection technology
SeaTalk is a Raymarine proprietary serial network protocol developed in the 1980's and used for the transmission of navigation data and other information on boats. The data is transmitted as compact binary data. SeaTalk uses a single wire connection as the data line for serial data transmission, meaning they are both sent and received bit by bit over a single wire.… Continue reading

NMEA2000 (National Marine Electronics Association 2000) is a bus system for communication in boats. It was designed to provide a uniform interface for transferring data from electronic devices on boats.
NMEA2000 is a bus system designed to transmit data between electronic devices on boats.… Continue reading
First of all, a few important notes that you should definitely pay attention to.
Fig.: NASA/Clipper Duet Sonar/Log
This article is about how to convert a NASA/Clipper Duet echo sounder/log so that the device outputs NMEA2000 data. This document is based on the DIY project by Sönke and was supplemented with some additional information. The NASA/Clipper Duet echo sounder/log is actually a device without a bus connection and works independently with two separate sensors.… Continue reading

The MDS – Mmaritime Data Server was developed to store and display boat data.
Which data can be saved?
During development, emphasis was placed on having a system that was as flexible as possible. The MDS is currently prepared for temperatures, voltages, GPS values, pressure and humidity, digital values, etc. Further data can be created by defining sensor types in the database.... Continue reading
The flow of configuration for data integration in Ubidots looks like this:
- Login to Ubidots
- Create a plugin for webhook at Ubidots
- Set up webhook at TTN V3
- Checking the webhook functionality
Set up Ubidots login and plugin for webhook
In order to be able to transfer the received LoRa data from TTN to Ubidots, we need a plugin for data reception for a webhook Set up in Ubidots.… Continue reading
