iKommunicate NMEA 0183/2000 to Signal K Gateway

"The Kickstarter funded success story that is enabling the Internet of Things Afloat."

iKommunicate is an intelligent gateway device that allows traditional boat navigation systems to be part of the "Internet of Things". By converting data from the "closed" industry standard NMEA networks found on most boats to Signal K the new "open" HTML5 based internet ready data format, a whole new world of social and connected boating will now be possible.

Traditionally marine electronic systems talked to each other via the industry standard NMEA0183 and newer NMEA2000 networks. There interfaces are very reliable, well proven and fit for purpose, but the costs for developers to become NMEA members, buy the specifications and have their software certified has severely restricted the number of marine applications that have used NMEA data. With the release of Signal K, a new open data format for boats, all of this is about to change and it will suddenly become very easy for developers to read and use the NMEA data. iKommunicate is driving this change, as the first NMEA to Signal K gateway product that will connect to the NMEA networks and convert all of the data in to the new Signal K format

Featuring three opto-isolated NMEA0183 Inputs, two differential NMEA0183 Outputs and an NMEA2000 Network interface, iKommunicate can handle whatever NMEA data is thrown at it. Its 120MHz Atmel processor, efficiently converts the NMEA data in to Signal K JSON data, the standard for the latest generation of HTML5 websites and apps, which is then output via HTTP or multiple high speed Web Sockets.

iKommunicate_s Ethernet (RJ45) connection, allows it to be connected to the boats wired/wireless network so that any mobile device connected to the network can display the Signal K data in its browser or compatible app. Pre-installed in iKommunicate are a couple of web apps (including the popular Instrument Panel) so that you can immediately start displaying NMEA data from your network and it features an 8GB micro SD card that can host any new Signal K web apps as they become available.

Features:
  • The World's first NMEA to Signal K Gateway
  • 12/24V DC Powered
  • NMEA2000 Certified Gateway with Integral NMEA2000 drop cable
  • Three Opto Isolated NMEA0183 Inputs and two Differential NMEA0183 Outputs
  • Supports Signal K Version 1 Http REST API and Delta Messages via Web sockets
  • Comes pre-installed with two Signal K Web Apps iKompass and Instrument Panel
  • Internal 8GB micro SD Card for hosting Web Pages and Apps
  • Also provides wireless NMEA over TCP and UDP protocols
  • Network Discovery via Bonjour (mDNS) and Windows SDDP
  • 1 x RJ45 Ethernet (10/100Mb) network connection
  • Easy setup with built-in Web Interface
  • Easy to install black box solution

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.

Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor Out Now

The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.
