Pitufino V1.1


Apart from all the functionality of the Pitufino V1.0, this next generation features additional safety and better usability. To increase the usability, we have added a status LED and a reset-button. But apart from these smaller changes we have added an alarm buzzer.

This brings the advantage that mobile devices can go into a sleep mode or offline and alarms are still reliably raised.

This further enables Pitufino to be used as a repeater (or an external alarm) for alarms sent over NMEA2000/SeatalkNG from Raymarine and Navico (Simrad,B&G,…) devices.

All the functionality of Version 1.0 as an NMEA router, multiplexer, translator and converter of course remains. It has been designed to let navigation devices from different generations, old and new, talk to each other and, of course, to your portable devices such as smart phones, tablet and laptop computers. Pitufino’s versatile configuration options allow even devices that are not quite in full compliance with the standards or that use deprecated or proprietary messages to become connected.

• Alarm-buzzer

• Status-LED

• Reset-button

• NMEA2000 port

• 2 NMEA0183 inputs

• 2 NMEA0183 outputs

• Wi-Fi: provides own access point (with DHCP) or connects to existing one

• mDNS: gateway can always be found as pitufino.local

• NMEA0183 data server: multiple TCP connections and/or UDP broadcast

• Web server: provides browser-based configuration, firmware update, pages to view
navigation data in real time (web instruments and web pilot controller)

• Configuration: elaborate settings for filtering, routing and conversion

• Built-in World Magnetic Model: up-to-date magnetic variation (and also, your chart plotter no longer needs to be online every time)

• Sentence Translator: Some devices output deprecated or unusual sentences. Pitufino translates them into well-supported ones.

• Computes ground-referenced true wind and provides wind data and COG/SOG with proper damping to TCP/UDP streams and to NMEA2000 for other displays

• Computes 1min/10min/60min averages for TWD, TWS, COG, SOG and VMC

• Creates hourly logbook entries with averages and other statistics

• Takes over the computations of waypoint data after the chartplotter (device or software) that started a navigation to the active waypoint (‘Go to’ or ‘active route’) has been switched off

• Repeater (or external alarm) for alarms transmitted over NMEA2000 from Raymarine devices and Navico (Simrad, B&G, …) devices

• Internal alarms for anchor drag, close AIS target, waypoint arrival, pilot waypoint confirmation and off course
