The Maretron DSM800 Vessel Monitoring and Control Indoor Display is a dedicated touch screen that comes preloaded with Maretron's N2KView vessel monitoring and control software. The N2KView software allows you to configure as many favorite screens as you want with exactly the information you want to see. Although not suitable for outdoor applications, the DSM800 provides an extremely simple touch interface for observing and controlling critical systems from inside the vessel.
The Maretron DSM800 Vessel Monitoring and Control Indoor Display is ruggedized for marine use and includes a solid state disk drive to withstand the pounding associated with waves. And since the DSM800 only dissipates 25 watts, there is no need for internal cooling fans that are noisy and wear out causing electronics to overheat and fail.
As an alternative to controlling the DSM800 through the touch screen, the DSM800 includes two USB ports for connecting keyboards, mice, or trackballs. The DSM800 also has an Ethernet port for communicating with an NMEA 2000 network through Maretron's Internet Protocol Gateway (IPG100). Although the DSM800 comes pre-installed with the N2KViewr software, a separately purchased license plugged into the IPG100 is required (see IPG100 page for more details). The Ethernet port is also used for connecting Internet Protocol (IP) cameras for viewing within the N2KViewr software.
