Offering a number of advanced functions, including direct access to the main functions using the pushbuttons on the front, the XDi Navigation version (XDi-N) is the top model of DEIF’s display-based indicator range.

With the XDi-N you can implement the same design across your bridge and combine propulsion and steering indication with a number of navigation indicators. Use DEIF’s standard libraries or have your own created. Utilise the two standard CAN busses and the XDi-net data sharing and system integration functions to optimise your system with centralised group control functions.

XDi-N main NMEA unit

The XDi-N main indicator is delivered with one NX2 NMEA input/output (I/O) module that in most cases covers all the needs for NMEA I/O.

XDi-N CAN repeater

The XDi-N CAN repeater indicator functions are identical to the main unit and receives data via CANbus (XDi-net). Therefore no NMEA extension module is required.

XDi-N navigation indicator library

DEIF offers a selection of standard navigation or wind indicator libraries. Over time, these will come to include heading, rate of turn, speed, depth, position, date/time, steering and WP info, distance, weather, etc.

NMEA data interface

NMEA data in compliant with IEC 61162-1 is standard for the XDi-N which supports more than 80 different data types, including dimming control.

NMEA setup features:

  • Automatic NMEA input scanning and selection
  • Input overview with easy access to make changes
