Prospec Electronics adds NMEA 2000 standards

Prospec Electronics is expanding its stereo offerings to include NMEA 2000 communications standards.

Performance outdoor sound systems company Prospec Electronics is expanding its stereo offerings to include NMEA 2000 communications standards.

Prospec said it will soon introduce the Infinity PRV450 and MBB400 Black Box stereos in time for model-year 2017.

Once connected to an NMEA 2000 network, they can be controlled by another device, such as a manufacturer's NMEA 2000-enabled multifunction display at a helm station, without any special setup or configuration.

NMEA 2000 is a worldwide plug-and-play interface communications standard developed by the National Marine Electronics Association. It enables interconnectivity and interchangeability between marine electronics without a central network controller.

Prospec Electronics manufactures and distributes Infinity Marine, JBL Marine, MB Quart, Milennia and Seaworthy brands. Its products include stereos, black boxes, controllers and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts.
