  1. Why doesn’t Maretron offer a WSO100 with a built in GPS or compass? The WSO100 is generally placed at the highest point on the vessel so that it is not obstructed from the wind. Unfortunately, the highest point on a vessel is often the worst possible placement for a GPS or compass. Take for example a GPS mounted at t... Read More
  2. Why is the WSO100 shaped the way it is? The WSO100 was designed from the ground up to work in the marine environment. Unlike ultrasonic wind measurement devices originally designed for land based applications where the unit is always mounted parallel with the earth, marine applications req... Read More
  3. If the TLA100 is connected and configured to operate in the "NMEA 2000" mode (i.e., without an analog gauge), how do I connect the wires to the resistive sensor? You connect the TLA100 operating in the NMEA 2000 mode (i.e., without analog gauge) to a resistive sensor in the following way:connect the black wire to the sensor ground terminalconnect the white wire to the sensor positive terminal....

  4. If the TLA100 is connected and configured to operate in the "NMEA 2000 & Analog Gauge" mode, how do I connect the wires to the back of the analog gauge? You connect the TLA100 operating in the NMEA 2000 & Analog Gauge mode to the gauge in the following way:connect the black wire to the gauge ground terminalconnect the green wire to the gauge sensor terminalconnect the red wire to the gauge power ...

  6. What is a GPS100? The GPS100 is a 12 channel global positioning system antenna and receiver with Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) capabilities. This includes SBAS for North America (WAAS), Europe (EGNOS), and Asia (MSAS). The GPS100 provides time and date, p... Read More
  7. What information does the GPS100 provide? The GPS100 provides the following information:latitude and longitudetime and dateCourse Over Ground (COG)Speed Over Ground (SOG)magnetic variationsatellite informationGiven this information from the GPS100, Maretron display products (DSM150, DSM200, ...

  8. What messages (or PGNs) does the GPS100 transmit? The GPS100 transmits the following messages (or PGNs):PGN 126992 - System Time (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Time Source)PGN 128259 - Speed (Fields: 1-SID, 2-Speed Water Referenced, 3- Speed Ground Referenced, 4-Speed Water Referenced Type)PGN 129025 - Position ...

  9. Is it possible to calibrate Speed Through Water (STW) within the DST100? Unfortunately, the DST100 can not be calibrated for Speed Through Water (STW), however, the DSM150, DSM200, and DSM250 can adjust the values coming from the DST100 so that you can effectively calibrate STW. On a DSM150, DSM200, or DSM250, do the foll... Read More
  10. If the RAA100 is connected and configured to operate in the "NMEA 2000" mode (i.e., without an analog gauge), how do I connect the wires to the resistive sensor? You connect the RAA100 operating in the NMEA 2000 mode (i.e., without analog gauge) to a resistive sensor in the following way:connect the black wire to the sensor ground terminalconnect the white wire to the sensor positive terminal...
