Phil I'm not sure which comments you refer to. I don't see anything from you recently.
The mux I use (shipmodule USB 2) can have at least one port set for real time mode so that data doesn't get lost
from something that is updating quickly such as a fast heading sensor. It is easily able to handle data the slow speeds on NMEA
after all it's chattering to the computer on USB at 115kb/s. This Mux has four I/O ports
. I have one connected to SeaTalk
, one connected to the E series display with the AIS
and and one feeding NMEA
data out to the AIS
I saw somebody mention here that you can parallel three NMEA ports
; which is partially true. You can, usually, distribute a. NMEA output to three receivers but you can't just parallel up transmitters.
, you can parallel as many as you will practically need Tx and Rx.
