NavNet TZtouch Network: Building Block Solution

NavNet TZtouch is built on an Ethernet network, allowing you to add as few or as many components as you desire, along with up to six displays, as well as CAN bus and NMEA2000 devices, to create your perfect navigation suite. The NavNet TZtouch system is built upon the most advanced chart plotter technology. Add to this a UHD™ Radar and an FDF™ Fish Finder, along with your choice from a wide variety of sensor options. It is easy to see how a NavNet TZtouch chart plotter display is the genesis to building the most sophisticated navigation suite available.

NMEA0183 to CAN bus converter available

The optional IF-NMEA2K2 converts NMEA0183 sentences to FURUNO CAN bus, enabling conventional NMEA0183 navigation devices to be incorporated into the NavNet TZtouch network.

∗All stated CAN bus devices can be incorporated into the NMEA2000 network.

What is CAN bus

CAN bus is a communication protocol that shares multiple data and signals through a single backbone cable. You can simply connect any CAN bus devices onto the backbone cable to expand your network onboard. With CAN bus, IDs are assigned to all the devices, and status of each sensor in the network can be detected. All the CAN bus devices can be incorporated into the NMEA2000 network.
