What is a Load Equivalance Number (LEN)?


A Load Equivalence Number or LEN is a whole number used to express the amount of current that is drawn from an NMEA 2000 network. One LEN is equal to 50mA. If a device draws 151mA of current from the network, then its LEN is 4. Note that the LEN is always roundedup to the next whole number.
