Australian navaids supplier Sealite, has announced that it will soon launch a new protocol convertor called Universal Gateway.

Sealite's release of satellite and GSM-enabled devices has made digital connectivity, asset monitoring and control seamless. But what about the ability to connect other types of devices?

The soon to be released Universal Gateway allows connection to a much wider range of marine assets. AtoN managers will gain full visibility and control of their devices via the Star2M asset management platform, or can choose to integrate into their existing management systems.

The Sealite Universal Gateway (SL-UGW) is a standalone protocol converter. It connects to products of various protocols and allows it to talk to an entire system. As a result, devices and systems are able to work together to access, exchange, integrate and cooperatively use data in a coordinated manner.

It is bi-directional, meaning the system can then communicate and command back to the asset for control or monitoring purposes. It includes fully configurable interface mapping. This can be implemented by an integrator or end-user to align with their products.

The product can be used to supplement existing Sealite Aids to Navigation products as well as other lighting products. It is also optimised for third-party equipment integration and is SATCOM enabled.

The Universal Gateway hardware is supplied as a complete mechanical assembly with multiple options available to connect to third party devices.
