NMEA 2000® to NMEA 0183 Gateway Adaptor 

The AMEC NK-80 NMEA 2000® Adaptor provides a full featured gateway between NMEA 0183 devices and NMEA 2000 networks. Likewise, a NMEA 2000 device can now be used by a marine instrument that only supports NMEA 0183.

AMEC Logo This device allows two-way communication between NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000. For example, you could connect a CAMINO-101 Class B transponder to your NMEA 2000 network. Or you could connect a standard NMEA or serial AIS receiver to a NMEA 2000 network. Or you could gateway all your NMEA 2000 traffic to a NMEA 0183 chartplotter. Or you could connect to a NMEA 2000 network using a computer serial port.  

KEY FEATURES

High-Performance 32-bit RISC CPU
Want to connect the GX2200 AIS/GPS Matrix radio to a NMEA 2000 network?
Check out this blog article with step-by-step instructions on how to use the AMEC NK-80 NMEA 2000 Adaptor to add this capability.
The CPU has a performance of 80 DMIPS to manage high traffic loading of NMEA data transactions.
Build-in memory storage
Features 64KB RAM and 256KB Flash ROM to ensure no loss of data.
Galvanically isolated
Protect your circuitry and investment from electrical spikes.
Configurable through a serial connection
This allows users to monitor/control NMEA data transactions. The product includes a Windows-based configuration tool to allow setting the NMEA port baud rate, map which sentences are passed between the networks and other settings.  
NMEA 2000 Certified
Provides maximum compatibility. The NK-80 passes all NMEA 2000 PGNs and NMEA 0183 sentences.
Powered by the NMEA2000 network
The NK-80 draws its power from the NMEA 2000 network so no additional power wiring is required.
Simple installation
Simply connect the NK-80 to your existing NMEA 2000 network and connect the NMEA 0183 input/output wires to your NMEA device. LEDs confirm data communication on both the NMEA 2000 and NMEA 0183 ports.

The NK-80 works perfect. I installed a new Raymarine " Evolution" autopilot (NMEA2000) on my Cape Dory last month and wanted to interface my Garmin 276 (NMEA0183)to the new autopilot. I did have to change the baud rate on the NK-80 to match the baud rate on the "older" Garmin to 4800. Easy enough to do..you may need to buy a RS-232 to usb adapter if your newer pc does not have RS-232 port.
