NMEA data network gets commission's OK

The National Marine Electronic Association’s NMEA 2000 Standard for Serial Data Networking of Marine Electronic Devices has been approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission.

The IEC prepares and publishes international standards for electrical, electronic and related technologies across a wide range of industries, including marine. The IEC has approved the NMEA 2000 Standard as a versatile and economic means of connecting a wide range of marine navigation and radio communications equipment aboard all classes of vessels including SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) vessels.

NMEA and the IEC TC (Technical Committee) 80 Working Group 6 worked collaboratively to ensure NMEA 2000 would fully support SOLAS applications, including redundancy.

The IEC now lists the NMEA 2000 standard on its Web site under the designation,
IEC 61162-3, and it can be accessed at http://www.iec.ch/online_news/justpub/jp_2008/jp.htm#61162-3

“NMEA and IEC succeeded in bringing the CAN technology that NMEA 2000 is built upon and enhanced its foundation for the SOLAS market,” said Steve Spitzer, NMEA’s Technical Director, in a statement. “This allows vessels of all classes worldwide to know that NMEA 2000 meets the global safety requirements for the international marketplace. NMEA is proud to have worked with the volunteers on the IEC TC 80 Working Group 6 on this project.”
