The RP60 remote data repeater is capable of displaying over 200 standard and proprietary NMEA 0183 sentences.
The RP60 can monitor up to 4 separate data channels and can be trained to learn new sentences. New sentence formats can be downloaded into re-programmable, non-volatile flash memory using the RS-232 serial data port of a PC compatible running Windows Win98, WinXP, Win2K, Vista and Win7.
Up to ten new sentences can be stored in the on-board flash memory - these can be re-programmed as many as 1 million times so your RP60 will never go obsolete.
Compact design - only 2-1/2" diameter and mounts in a standard 2-1/8" round instrument hole.
Five levels of backlighting can be selected and all set-up information is automatically saved to non-volatile memory. The RP60 works on both 12 and 24 VDC systems.
For those with little or no knowledge of repeaters and NMEA 0183 signals, here is a short tutorial that describe the usefulness of the RP60:
Most CruzPro instruments have an output terminal upon which the instrument sends out a serial data stream of information. This signal is called NMEA 0183, a standard defined by the US National Marine Electronics Association to enable instruments from one manufacturer to communicate with instruments from another manufacturer.
