Actisense to deliver training at NMEA Conference & Expo
Actisense, a marine electronics company based in Poole, England, will deliver a manufacturer training session on their devices at NMEA Conference & Expo on Thursday 19thSeptember at 8am.
This year’s NMEA Conference & Expo takes place at the Portsmouth Renaissance Hotel in Portsmouth, Virginia and runs from the 16th-20th of September. Actisense will be crossing the Atlantic Ocean to deliver a training session on their range of marine electronic devices.
The session, which will run from 8am to 9:15am, will enable users to fully experience all the unique features of the award-winning devices. Marine electronics dealers and installers will also be informed of the key features and benefits to improve their knowledge of the products they promote and install.
Part of the session focuses on customer feedback received by their Technical Support team. To make installation and problem solving as easy as possible, Actisense have developed helpful tools that enable users to view and diagnose issues on an NMEA 2000® network. This tool swill also help users configure and update Actisense products already installed.
Actisense will also be training attendees on some of their new innovations. Earlier in 2019, the W2K-1, a compact and low-power NMEA 2000 to Wi-Fi Gateway with voyage data recording was released. The company will also preview the SBN-2, a brand-new addition to the NMEA 2000 networking range, providing the equivalent of eight T pieces in one compact unit with termination resistors built in.
Andy Campbell, Chief Engineer at Actisense, will be delivering the session drawing on over 20 years’ experience developing Actisense products. Andy also sits on the steering committee for OneNet®, a framework to help standardise the method of transmitting and receiving NMEA 2000® messages over Ethernet.
Andy Campbell said:
“Our sessions have been designed to give attendees and current users of Actisense devices a comprehensive update of our products, and answer questions about installation and configuration. We’ve listened to customers feedback and added new products to the range that will meet their needs.
“We encourage our customers to share their ideas with us as well as listening to the issues they encounter on a daily basis. Our aim to make installers and users lives as simple as possible by providing solutions that can overcome the challenges they face.”
Phil Whitehurst, CEO of Actisense, said:
“It will be a great experience for Actisense to return to NMEA Conference & Expo as it is such a prestigious event in our industry. We will be available to answer any questions on our range and we look forward to catching up with some old friends from the industry, too.”
Actisense will also be exhibiting on Tuesday 17th September and Wednesday 18th September, where attendees can see the range of marine electronic products available and the new additions, like the SBN-2, that will be released later this year.
