The NMEA 2000 ConnectFest, a live demonstration of the NMEA 2000 open industry networking standard, has been scheduled at METS 2013 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on Tuesday, November 19. The international marine leisure industry’s largest trade show, METS will run November 19-21.

Many manufacturers will participate at the demonstration by connecting their products to the NMEA 2000 backbone and demonstrating interoperability on the network. Following a short status summary by Steve Spitzer, technical director of the NMEA, the demonstration will open for visitors to come by at their convenience. Visitors will have an opportunity to talk with manufacturers who have developed products using the NMEA 2000 protocol. Hands-on experience with the NMEA 2000 cables and connectors system shows the advantages of the lightweight, quickly installed network and shows how systems can be expanded for future needs.

ConnectFest visitors may ask questions related to costs, installation, configurability, and scalability. The NMEA 2000 network is an open plug-and-play system, enabling connection and disconnection of products with no downtime on the network. New NMEA 2000 Messages published since 2012 will be explained, including new PGNs for power distribution, power generation, watermaker control, man overboard, and an alerts suite with more than 900 potential messages.
