Manufacturers of NMEA 2000 equipment are required to disclose the amount of current drawn from the NMEA 2000 network. The amount of current used from the network is expressed as a Load Equivalence Number (LEN) where each LEN is equal to 50mA. For example, a device that draws 0.5 amperes (500 mA) from the network would have LEN equal to 10.
