THE LINK UP GATEWAY CONCEPT
The Link Up Pyrometer gateway (hereinafter “Device” or “Link Up”) provide an easy method to provide the exhaust temperature to NMEA 2000. Easily installed, the LinkUp gateway replaces the original wiring, delivering power to both the LinkUp device and sensor from the NMEA 2000 backbone while still being compliant with the NMEA 2000 certification requirements. The data are then available for being displayed on any OceanLink, AcquaLink, or more in general on any glass cockpit NMEA 2000 display device.
Configuring LinkUp gateways
Simple using a mobile device and the companion LinkUp Configurator App for Android or iOS. Each device has a built-in passive NFC antenna, so the parameters of the sensor are wirelessly configured to type, instance and warning threshold on the mobile device which is then “tapped” against the LinkUp device for instant data download.
DESIGN AND FUNCTION
The Link Up gateway has a simple but yet effective design. The housing filled with bi-component resin allows the unit to be installed in Engine Rooms, making it compliant to the ISO 8846:1990 as requested by the directive 2013-53(EC). The standard NMEA 2000® M12 plug allows for a plug-and-play installation to the network backbone.
The pyrometer sensor serves to monitor accurately the temperature in the elbow flange of the exhaust pipe and indicates eventual thermal overload of the engine. The sensor connection to the LinkUp happens though an extension cable provided with an AMP SuperSeal plug, which perfectly matches the LinkUp, without the need of additional wiring.
