Actisense Lite cable assemblies are UL certified and allow quick installations
with quality reassurance.
NMEA 2000® cable includes five wires within a single waterproof cable: power and
ground wires, two signal (data) wires and a drain wire. The drain wire connects
to the cable shield which protects the signal, power and ground wires from
external Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and helps reduce RFI emission from
NMEA 2000® Lite cable can be used to create a backbone up to 100 meters in
length. If the backbone length required exceeds 100 meters, the center of the
bus can be extended with NMEA 2000® mini cable to keep the outer Lite sections
to the 100-meter maximum.
The maximum length of a drop cable (distance from the backbone) is 6 meters. It
is important to limit each drop length to the minimum required as the total of
all drop lengths must not exceed 72 meters.
