The DS-NGT NMEA2000 Interface allows users to connect their DS Base Unit to the onboard NMEA2000 electronics backbone. This enables the DS Base Unit to pull valuable engine data, including hours, fuel consumption, and basic fault codes. Users will also be able to access real time fuel, water, and waste tank levels.
To start using the DS-NGT NMEA2000 to connect to your boat’s NMEA 2000 network, please follow these steps:
- Connect the NGT-1-MTC.
- The DS-NGT NMEA2000 connects to the DS Base Unit’s Aux 2 port, located on the top of the DS Base Unit.
- The DS-NGT NMEA2000 connects to the NMEA backbone using the supplied NMEA T connector.
- After 15 minutes of running the engines look for new device ‘Tiles’ to appear on the Siren Marine mobile app’s Home screen.
- After 0:00:00 UTC of the first day after powering on the DS-NGT NMEA2000, the Siren Marine app will display engine performance, fuel consumption and fluid tank information.
