Toronto, Canada – Northport Systems Inc., announced today the availability of the new intelligent National Marine Electronic Association (NMEA)-compliant gateway, the Actisense® Engine Monitoring Unit (EMU-1). Designed to digitize analog engine data, The EMU-1 gateway is an innovative, cost-effective, and easy-to-install solution that allows boaters to display and monitor the engines of their vessel on any NMEA 2000® displays.
