I have an application that needs data transmitted as 0183 sentences (wind speed and direction). My sensors all output their data as PGN's over my NMEA 2000 network.

If I connect the DMK Box to my N2K network, will my wind data (and other data along the N2K network) be available as 0183 sentences, or am I going to have to convert the PGN's to 0183 before inputting that data into the DMK Box?

    I'm sorry but the DMK Box will not translate NMEA 2000 data to NMEA 0183. We just broadcast the raw NMEA 2000 PGN's to the app and it needs to do the conversion. The best way to get the conversion done is to purchase an Actisense NGW-1 converter.
