The TSM800 is an 8" dedicated touchscreen 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. The TSM800 provides an extremely simple touch interface for monitoring and controlling critical systems from anywhere on the vessel.
The TSM800 is ruggedized for marine use and includes a solid state disk drive to withstand the pounding associated with waves. And since the TSM800 only dissipates 20W, there is no need for internal cooling fans that are noisy and wear out causing electronics to overheat and fail. The TSM800 can be mounted outside given the high bright screen and waterproof front.
As an alternative to controlling the TSM800 through the touch screen, the TSM800 includes two USB ports for connecting keyboards, mice, or trackballs. The TSM800 also has an Ethernet port for communicating with an NMEA 2000® network through Maretron's Internet Protocol Gateway (IPG100). Although the TSM800 comes pre-installed with the N2KView® 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 N2KView® software.
