NMEA 2000 gets OK from Lloyd’s

Lloyd’s Register EMEA accepted the NMEA 2000 standard as well as the NMEA 2000 physical cable and connector system. The NMEA 2000 also was accepted by the International ElectroTechnical Commission in the IEC standard 61162-3.

The NMEA 2000 standard offers a means for marine electronics to interface and communicate with each other. The standard and its physical components have become increasingly adapted by the maritime community, both in recreational boating and in the commercial marine sector, according to Steve Spitzer, technical director of the National Marine Electronics Association.

“The acceptance of NMEA 2000 is very important to international customers and to boat and ship owners,” Spitzer said in a statement.

“Lloyd’s acceptance has international and domestic implications for use of the NMEA 2000 standard,” he continued. “Among other things, it means that NMEA 2000 cables and connectors meet the Lloyd’s smoke and fire requirements for ships.”
