J2K100 User’s Manual
2.4 Connecting the J2K100
The J2K100 requires two electrical connections as shown in Figure 2. Refer to Section 2.4.1
for making the NMEA 2000® connection and Section 2.4.2 for making the J1939 connection.
Figure 2 – J2K100 Electrical Connections
2.4.1 Connecting the J2K100 NMEA 2000® Interface
Vertical text on the J2K100 label identifies the NMEA 2000® connector. With the label right
side up, the NMEA 2000® connector can be found on the right side of the enclosure. The
NMEA 2000® connector is a five pin male connector (see Figure 3). You connect the J2K100
to an NMEA 2000® network using a Maretron NMEA 2000® cable (or compatible cable) by
connecting the female end of the cable to the J2K100 (note the key on the male connector and
keyway on the female connector). Be sure the cable is connected securely and that the collar
on the cable connector is tightened firmly. Connect the other end of the cable (male) to the
NMEA 2000® network in the same manner. The J2K100 is designed such that you can plug or
unplug it from an NMEA 2000® network while the power to the network is connected or
disconnected. Please follow recommended practices for installing NMEA 2000® network
products.

2.4.2 Connecting the J2K100 J1939 Interface
Vertical text on the J2K100 label identifies the J1939 connector. With the label right side up,
the J1939 connector can be found on the left side of the enclosure. In order to make the J1939
connection, you will need to locate the supplied female field attachable connector. This
connector is fitted to one end of a 3-conductor cable (not supplied). Make the connections
between the 3-conductor cable and the field attachable connector by following the instruction
contained within the bag. Although the field attachable connector has 5 terminals, you only
need to connect the CAN bus signals and ground signal (NET-H white terminal, NET-L blue
terminal, and ground or NET-C black terminal). The other end of the 3-conductor cable needs
to be tied into the J1939 network. You will need to identify the CAN bus signals on the J1939
network by reviewing the manufacturer’s documentation. Most likely, they will identify the CAN
bus signals as CAN-H and CAN-L which corresponds to the field attachable terminals NET-H
and NET-L respectively. You will also need to connect the NET-C or ground signal found within
the field attachable connector to the J1939 ground connection.
2.4.3 Checking Connections
Once the NMEA 2000® and J1939 connections to the J2K100 have been completed, check to
see that information is being properly transmitted by observing an appropriate NMEA 2000®
display. If you don’t see engine and/or generator data, refer to Section 4, “Troubleshooting”.
2.5 Configuring the J2K100
As shipped from the factory, the J2K100 does not require any special configuration and will
work for most applications. However, there are several configurable items within the J2K100,
including: 1) J1939 source address selection, 2) NMEA 2000® engine instance selection, 3)
NMEA 2000® transmission instance selection, 4) J1939 diagnostic messages enable/disable,
and 4) NMEA 2000® PGN enable/disable.
Revision 1.0
Page 5
J2K100 User’s Manual
2.5.1 J1939 Source Address Selection
The J2K100 connects into a J1939 network and translates messages from a single J1939
device into NMEA 2000® messages. By default, the J2K100 only translates J1939 messages
from a J1939 device with a source address of zero. If the J1939 source address of the engine,
transmission, or genset to be monitored is different than zero, then the J2K100 must be
programmed with the appropriate J1939 source address. This can be done with the Maretron
DSM200 display or other NMEA 2000® display unit that is capable of configuring the J2K100.
Please refer to the Maretron DSM200 User’s Manual for details.
2.5.2 NMEA 2000® Engine Instance Selection
NMEA 2000® provides a unique engine instance for each engine on a vessel. Single engine
vessels use engine instance zero (0) while dual engine vessels use engine instance zero (0)
for the port engine and engine instance one (1) for the starboard engine. By default the
J2K100 uses engine instance zero (0). If you are installing the J2K100 on a single engine
vessel, then you don’t have to configure this parameter. However, if you install two J2K100s
for dual engine vessels, then you will need to configure the starboard engine J2K100 to use
engine instance one (1). You configure the J2K100 using a Maretron DSM200 display or other
NMEA 2000® display unit that is capable of configuring the J2K100. Please refer to the
Maretron DSM200 User’s Manual for details.
2.5.3 NMEA 2000® Transmission Instance Selection
NMEA 2000® provides a unique transmission instance for each transmission on a vessel.
Single transmission vessels use transmission instance zero (0) while dual transmission
vessels use transmission instance zero (0) for the port transmission and transmission instance
one (1) for the starboard transmission. By default the J2K100 uses transmission instance zero
(0). If you are installing the J2K100 on a single transmission vessel, then you don’t have to
configure this parameter. However, if you install two J2K100s for dual transmission vessels,
then you will need to configure the starboard transmission J2K100 to use transmission
instance one (1). You configure the J2K100 using a Maretron DSM200 display or other NMEA
2000® display unit that is capable of configuring the J2K100. Please refer to the Maretron
DSM200 User’s Manual for details.
2.5.4 J1939 Diagnostic Messages Enable/Disable
The J2K100 is capable of re-broadcasting J1939 diagnostic messages output by the monitored
engine, transmission, or genset onto the NMEA 2000® network. As shipped from the factory,
the J2K100 does not transmit J1939 diagnostic messages over the NMEA 2000® network. If
this behavior is desired, it may be enabled with the Maretron DSM200 display or other NMEA
2000® display unit that is capable of configuring the J2K100. Please refer to the Maretron
DSM200 User’s Manual for details.
2.5.5 NMEA 2000® PGN Enable/Disable
The J2K100 is capable of transmitting several different kinds of NMEA 2000® messages (or
PGNs) associated with engines, transmissions, and gensets. The J2K100 automatically
detects incoming messages from the J1939 network and translates them into corresponding
Page 6
Revision 1.0
®
NMEA 2000® PGNs. For example, if the J2K100 receives engine related messages from the
J1939 network but no transmission or genset messages, then the J2K100 will generate the
corresponding NMEA 2000® engine PGNs but it will not transmit any NMEA 2000®
transmission or genset messages. As another example, let’s say that there is an engine and a
genset connected to the J1939 network yet we are only interested in having the engine
messages translated to corresponding NMEA 2000® PGNs. In this case, the J2K100 can be
configured to enable engine PGNs while disabling genset PGNs. You can configure the
J2K100 using a Maretron DSM200 display or other NMEA 2000® display unit that is capable of
configuring the J2K100. Please refer to the Maretron DSM200 User’s Manual for details.
3 Maintenance
Regular maintenance is important to ensure continued proper operation of the Maretron
J2K100. Perform the following tasks periodically:
•
•
•
Clean the unit with a soft cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners as they may remove
paint or markings or may corrode the J2K100 enclosure or seals.
Ensure that the unit is mounted securely and cannot be moved relative to the mounting
surface. If the unit is loose, tighten the mounting screws.
Check the security of the cable connected to the NMEA 2000® and J1939 connectors
and tighten if necessary.

4 Troubleshooting
If you notice unexpected operation of the Maretron J2K100, follow the troubleshooting
procedures in this section to remedy simple problems.
Symptom
No engine, transmission
or genset data visible on
NMEA 2000® network.
Troubleshooting Procedure
Ensure that the J1939 network is operational by observing J1939
gauges or displays. You should see information transmitted from
the engine, transmission, or genset displayed on the J1939
displays. If you don’t see data, try disconnecting the J1939
connection you made to the J2K100 as something may have been
connected incorrectly.
Once you are sure that the J1939 network is operational with a
J2K100 connected, ensure that the NMEA 2000® network is
operational by observing displays. You should see information
from components besides the ones attached to the J2K100 which
verifies an operational NMEA 2000® network. If you don’t see data,
try disconnecting the NMEA 2000 connection you made to the
J2K100 as something may have been connected incorrectly.
Once you are sure that the J1939 and NMEA 2000 networks are
operational with a connected J2K100, ensure that the NMEA
2000® connector is securely connected to the NMEA 2000®
network and the J1939 connector is securely connected to the
J1939 network.
Ensure that the J2K100 has the appropriate NMEA 2000® PGNs
enabled as described in 2.5.5.
If these steps do not solve your problem, please contact Maretron Technical Support (refer to
Section 6 for contact information).
Warning: There are no user-serviceable components inside the Maretron J2K100. Opening
the J2K100 will expose the sensitive electronic components to adverse environmental
conditions that may render the unit inoperative. Please do not open the J2K100, as this will
automatically void the warranty. If service is required, please return the unit to an authorized
Maretron service location.

Field 1: Engine Instance – This field indicates the particular engine for which this data
applies. A single engine will have an instance of 0. Engines in multi-engine boats will
be numbered starting at 0 at the bow of the boat incrementing to n going in towards
the stern of the boat. For engines at the same distance from the bow are stern, the
engines are numbered starting from the port side and proceeding towards the
starboard side.
2: Engine Speed – This field indicates the rotational speed of the engine in units of ¼
RPM.
3: Engine Boost Pressure – This field indicates the turbocharger boost pressure in units
of 100 Pa.
4: Engine tilt/trim – This field indicates the tilt or trim (positive or negative) of the engine
in units of 1 percent.
5: Reserved – This field is reserved by NMEA; therefore, the J2K100 sets all bits to a
logic 1.
PGN 127489 – Engine Parameters, Dynamic
