Vessel Monitoring & Control Black Box
Maretron's third generation Black Box (MBB300C) is a dedicated processing unit
that includes Maretron's N2KView® vessel monitoring and control software.
Unlike a PC that allows any software to be loaded, the MBB300C runs only
N2KView® software making it extremely stable and dedicated to monitoring and
controlling your vessel.
The MBB300C is ruggedized for marine use and includes a solid state disk drive
to withstand the pounding associated with waves. And since the MBB300C
dissipates less than 10W, there is no need for internal cooling fans that are
noisy and wear out causing electronics to overheat and fail.
The MBB300C connects to a monitor through a VGA connector or an HDMI connector
while the associated touch screen connects through a USB or serial port.
Alternatives to controlling the N2KView® software through a touch screen
include keyboards, mice, or track balls connected through USB. In addition to
the two completely isolated CAN bus connectors for simple connection to single
or redundant NMEA 2000® networks, the MBB300C has an Ethernet port for
connecting Internet Protocol (IP) cameras for viewing video within the
Of course you get the same flexibility using Maretron's N2KView® software from
the MBB300C as you would running the software on a PC, which includes the
ability to configure as many screens as you want with exactly the information
you want to see. Plus you get free upgrades to the software as improvements
and new features are added.
