Welcome aboard the Nexus Network!
Thank you for choosing NX2 and welcome to the world of the Nexus Network.
Through this manual we would like to help you install, operate and understand your
new Nexus Network.
The Server is the ”heart” of your Nexus Network, to which transducers for speed,
depth, heading, wind and navigation (GPS, Loran or Decca) are connected.
From the Server the single Nexus Network cable transmits power and data to the
instruments, which repeat the information sent from the Server, or other NX2
transducers.
The Nexus Network is designed with the industry standard RS 485 databus, which
allows you to connect up to 32 NX2 instrument units on the single Nexus Network
cable, thereby allowing you the flexibility to easily develop your system. The Nexus
Network is capable of carrying data 10 times faster than NMEA 0183.
The connection system, with a single 5 mm (1/5") cable and 4-pole jack plugs with
cable protectors, makes the installation easy. No need to drill big holes and the
cable can be cut to exact lengths. The connections at the Server are colour coded
and marked with a number for easy reference.
NX2 Multi Control is a multi function instrument that displays a main and a subfunction together. You can easily ”customise” your favourite combination of
functions, by using the unique method to move, copy and lock a sub-function.
The instruments large display gives you very good viewing possibilities from any
angle, even in bright sunlight. The display and the five push-buttons have red back
lighting which you can set to three different lighting levels.
A large selection of optional analogue repeaters and accessories are available. The
analogue steer pilot instrument particularly offers unique functions. When used
together with the steer reference function (AWA), you can actually steer after the
wind and ”expand” the tacking or down wind angle.
These NX2 instruments carry a two year warranty, which gives you as our
customer, confidence to trust NX2 and our commitment to quality.
To get the most out of your new NX2 product, please read through this manual
carefully before you start your installation.
Again, thank you for choosing NX2. If you see us at a show, stop by and say hello.
Good luck and happy boating!

Installation
The installation includes 6 major steps:
Read the installation and operation manual.
Plan where to install the transducers and instruments.
Run the cables.
Install the transducers and instruments.
Take a break and admire your installation.
Learn the functions and calibrate your system.
Before you begin drilling ... think about how you can make the installation as neat
and simple as your boat will allow. Plan where to position the transducers, Server
and instruments. Think about leaving space for additional instruments in the future.

A few ”do nots” you should consider:
Do not cut the cables too short. Allow extra cable length at the Server so it
can be disconnected for inspection without having to disconnect all
attached cables.
Do not place sealant behind the display. The instrument gasket eliminates
the need for sealant.
Do not run cables in the bilge, where water can appear.
Do not run cables close to fluorescent light sources, engine or radio
transmitting equipment to avoid electrical disturbances.
Do not rush, take your time. A neat installation is easy to do.
•
The following material is needed:
Wire cutters and strippers.
Small and large Philips and small flat head screw driver.
Hole saw for the instrument clearance hole 63 mm (2½").
5 mm (1/4") drill for the mounting holes.
Plastic cable ties
If you are doubtful about the installation, obtain the services of an experienced
technician.

2.1
Installing the instrument
•
Place the adhesive drill template on the desired location for the instrument. Drill the
2 holes using a 5 mm (1/4") drill for the two pin bolts. Use a 63 mm (2½") hole saw to
machine the clearance hole for the instrument connection socket. Remove the
template.
•
•
•
Screw the two pin bolts to the instrument
Put the instrument in place
Screw the two nuts from the back
Note! The two nuts must just be tighten by hand
•
•
•
Run the Nexus Network cable from the Server
to the instrument.
If you want to cut the Nexus Network cable to
length, disconnect 4-pole jack plug and cut
the cable. Peel off about 35 mm (1,4") of the
cable insulation. Remove about 6 mm (1/4")
from the 3 isolated wires (the 4th wire is an
earth / screen). Attach the 4 cable protectors
to the wires using a pair of flat pliers.
Connect the 4 cable protectors to the 4-pole
jack plug as shown. Apply silicon paste on all
locations
as
shown.
Note: Must be done to avoid corrosion.

•
Apply silicon paste to the instrument connection pins at the back of the instrument.
Press the jack plug onto the instrument pins. Press the cable in to the cable leads.
Mount the connection back cover with the screw.
2.1.1
Installing instrument to the Server
All NX2 instruments are connected directly to the Nexus Network
in a daisy chain. They all use the same colour coded 4-pole jack
plugs.

First start
3.1
Initialising the instrument
At power on, the instrument will perform a self test. The display
will first show all segments, then the software version number and
the Nexus Network ID number.
er installation, you will be asked to press SET
At first power on after
(PrESkey). This will give the instrument a logical ID number on the
Nexus Network.
To initialise the instrument, press SET on all installed digital
instruments, one at the time.
Note: Always wait for the text ”Init OK”
to be displayed, before you press SET
on the next instrument!
The Server automatically gives the first unit ID number 16, then
17 and so on. The order in which you press SET is the same
order as the instruments will be given a logical ID number on the
Nexus Network.
The example shows that the instrument version number is 2.0 and
the given logical ID number is 16.
3.2
Re-initialising the instrument
If two instruments by mistake have the same ID number, this can
cause disturbance and block the information on the Nexus data
bus.
To re-initialise the instrument, press CLEAR during the power up
sequence when version and ID numbers are displayed.
The display self test is then re-started on all instruments and you
will be asked to press KEY on each instrument as explained
above.
Note! If you do not succeed to re-initialise, we suggest you
disconnect all but one instrument with the same ID number, then
repeat the above procedure.

8.3
Steer reference (Pilot)
The sub-function (Pilot) is intended to be used together with the
optional analogue instrument steer pilot (Art. No. 20550-2) to
assist the helmsman to keep the desired heading.
The powerful combination of the Multi Control instrument
together with the analogue steer pilot actually offers you 6
functions.
Compass steering: (MEM)
1. Compass steering, using the 1 memory.
2. Headers and lifters, using the 2 memories and trim button. (See
9.3)
Wind steering: (AWA)
3. Close hauled indicator, ex. 35°
4. Down wind indicator, ex. 175°
Waypoint steering:
5. Bearing To waypoint (BTW)
6. Course To Steer (CTS), including set and drift
When a steer reference has been
selected the analogue steer pilot
instrument is immediately activated.
It starts to indicate the difference
between desired and actual heading
or angle. The logic is to keep the
steer pilot instrument needle straight
up pointing at zero (0) to stay on the
set heading.
From analogue steer pilot instrument version 2.0, (MEM) and
(BTW) is functioning with COG (if navigator connected) even if a
compass is not installed . The analogue read out will start at
speed above 4KTS and stop below 2 KTS.
If you do not have the analogue steer pilot instrument, you can still
use the function, if you display the selected steer reference
heading (STR) in the sub-function and compare it with the actual
compass heading in the main-function.
A NX2 autopilot can not be activated from the steer reference
function. But when the NX2 autopilot has been activated in
compass or wind mode it is possible to alter the autopilots
heading from the (MEM) and (AWA) functions.

When the steer reference function (AWA) is used together with
the analogue steer pilot instrument, you can display an enlarged
”picture” of the tacking or run angle. Put simply, you ”expand” the
wind angle.
Use the analogue steer pilot as a ”close hauled” instrument.
Example: You have selected 35° starboard side (35° |- STR) as
your tacking angle.
When the needle on the analogue steer pilot instrument points
straight up to zero (0), you steer at the selected 35° wind angle.
You can of course also use the (AWA) function when running
down wind, to keep a selected value for the run angle and/or to
warn for a gibe.
Example: You have selected 160° port side (160° -| STR) as your
running angle. When the needle on the analogue steer pilot
instrument points to 15° port side you are at 145°. When the
needle is at zero (0) you are at 160°. When the needle points 15°
starboard you are at 175°.
At night, when you can not see the wind shifts, the use of the
(AWA) function together with the analogue steer pilot is a very
helpful.
This is a dynamite function that allows you to ”expand” the
wind angles!!!
When a NX2 Autopilot is activated in wind mode, the (AWA)
function on the Multi Control instrument can be used to perform
an automatic tack.
The minus sign ( - ) in front of the wind angle value = port side.
The underlining sign ( _ ) in front of the wind angle value =
starboard side.
Simply change the value of the digit in front of the wind angle, and
the NX2 Autopilot will gibe to the opposite tack.

Tactical function
This function requires a compass transducer and displays course memory. One for
starboard and one for port tack.
To fully use the tactical function it is recommended to install the optional trim button
(Art. No. 19763) and analogue steer pilot instrument (Art. No 22115-02). The trim
button is usually installed close to the steering position. Many prefer to install one trim
button on each side of the boat, that is one for each tack. (For installation of trim
button, see Server manual). Your apparent tack angle is assumed to be constant, in
that your magnetic heading will be changed compared to the wind, that is you will be
changing your heading due to the wind shifts.
The tactical function will give you a fast and exact information about any wind shift
compared to the magnetic heading.
Select sub-function (TAC).
When you have maximum ”lift”, press SET (or the trim button) to
store the value. When the wind ”heads” more than 5-10* it is time
to tack.
Follow the same procedure on the new leg. The reference value
for the selected tack, will be changed every time you press SET
36

(or the trim button). When you tack, the reference value of the last
leg will automatically be displayed.
If the optional analogue steer pilot instrument connected, select
sub-function pilot (MEM), as steer reference (See 8.3.2).
The deviation from selected course will be displayed on the
analogue steer pilot instrument.
If you do not have the optional trim button or analogue steer pilot
connected, we suggest you move the sub-function (TAC) to the
NAVIGATE page. Now you can display both the heading and the
tactical reference (TAC) at the same time.
Remember to turn off the off course alarm. To turn off the off
course alarm, set C32 to (00 ), (See 12.3.3, C32).
10 Man over board (MOB) function
This function will guide you back to the position where the man
over board (MOB) button was pressed.
This function requires either a navigator (a NX2 GPS or NMEA
navigator can be used) or a speed and compass transducer as
well as a man over board (MOB) button. (See Server Manual).
If only a compass and a speed transducer is connected, dead
reckoning (MOB) will be displayed on both the Multi Control and
the SPEED Log instruments. Dead reckoning (MOB) is also a very
useful information, since a person in the water will drift almost as
fast as the boat.
If a navigator, a compass and a log transducer is connected, dead
reckoning (MOB) will be performed and displayed in the SPEED
Log instrument. At the same time the Multi Control instrument will
display (MOB) relative position stored in memory when the (MOB)
button was activated. A position in latitude and longitude is more
important for the sea rescue service.
The (MOB) position is automatically stored in waypoint number
99, and over writes any earlier stored position.
To activate the MOB function, press the (MOB) button.
A fixed alarm signal will sound briefly to alert the crew. The text

difference with priority to GPS position over dead reckoning
position.
Note: It is wise to practice this manoeuvre with the crew.
Everyone in the crew should be aware of the (MOB) routine.
When you practice, it can be thoughtful to use a fender instead of

12.4 Compass calibration
12.4.1
Automatic compass deviation compensation (Auto
DEV)
(Auto DEV) is performed by driving the boat in a circle up to 1¼
turn, so that the magnetic deviation can be measured, and by that
compensated.
Select calibration code C33 (Auto DEV).
Drive the boat in a circle for 1 1/4 turn in calm water. When you
start the circle manoeuvre, press SET.
The un-deviated compass course will be shown in the display as
you turn. Complete the circle up to 1 ¼ turn.
When the manoeuvre is ready, press SET to store the deviation
value.
If the deviation is corrected (Auto DEV) will be displayed.
If the deviation is not corrected, an error message will be
displayed.
To verify the automatic compass deviation, perform an automatic
compass check (Auto CHK), (see 12.4.2).
43
MULTI CONTROL
Note: You will get the best result in calm water with a smooth turn
on the steering wheel independently of how the circle is
performed. When activated, you can stop the automatic compass
deviation at any time with a press on CLEAR.
12.4.2 Automatic compass deviation check (Auto CHK)
(Auto CHK) is done by driving the boat in a circle up to 1 ¼ turn,
after (Auto DEV) is performed. The result will be compared with
(Auto DEV). If the deviation is less than 1,5*, the average value
from the comparison between (Auto DEV) and (Auto CHK) will be
stored.
If the check is OK, (Auto CHK) will be displayed.
If not an error message will be displayed.
Select automatic compass check (Auto CHK), press SET and
repeat the same circle manoeuvre as described in the (Auto DEV)
routine.
Note: As soon as you place any kind of ferrous items close to the
compass, the (Auto DEV) / (Auto CHK) routines should be
repeated. So if you have packed your boat for the vacation, think
about where you place ferrous items in relation to the compass
transducer.
12.4.3 Cancel earlier performed compass deviation (Auto
CLR)
To cancel earlier (Auto DEV), press SET.
12.4.4 Compass misalignment correction (Adj)

12.7.2 Change NMEA sentences OUT from Server
Before you change any of the factory set NMEA sentences, check what NMEA
sentences can be received by your NMEA navigator.
Select the slot number for the sentence to be changed, then press KEY.
To select the sentence, press DOWN or UP until found.
To lock the selected sentence, press KEY.
One of the advantages with the Nexus Network is the very fast transmission
speed of data compared to the relatively slow NMEA standard (about 10 times
faster). Therefore we recommend that you use Nexus instruments and
transducers for better accuracy.
It takes two seconds to transmit all 16 NMEA sentences.
To double the transmission speed, select a NMEA sentence 2 times with 7 slots
apart, that is the slots should be as far away from each other as possible.
In a similar way, you can select the a sentence 4 times to make it 4 times faster.
Example: If you want to transmit the Nexus compass heading via NMEA, to for
example an autopilot, select (HDM) for every odd slot number, C79, C81, C83 ...
C93, that is 8 times which makes the speed 4 times / second. This leaves the

12.7.3 Receive NMEA sentences IN to Server
There are 6 different main types of NMEA sentences:
1) Position related data: Position, SOG/COG, time, and a limited amount of
satellite status if a GPS is connected. The information is read if no other Nexus
GPS is connected. If a Nexus GPS is connected, it will take over the navigation.
2) Navigation data: (BTW), (DTW), (BOD), (XTE), (SET) and (DRIFT).
The Server will automatically send data to the Nexus Network. E.g.: (DRIFT),
(WCV), (TTG) and (CTS).
3) Speed data: is read only if (C73 BSP) is set to (ON). See 12.6.4
4) Depth data: is read only if (C74 DEP) is set to (ON). See 12.6.5
5) Compass data: is read only if (C75 CMP) is set to (ON) See 12.6.6. Heading
is either (HDT) (priority) or (HDM). Magnetic variation (from Nexus Network) is
added to (HDM) but not to (HDT).
6) Wind data: angle and wind speed is read from (MWV) data, only if (C76 WND)
is set to (ON) See 12.6.7. True wind angle and wind speed is calculated by
Nexus, when the boat speed (the speed of the water) is known.
The following NMEA sentences can be received IN to Server:

sentence. If data is placed in different locations, the data will be selected from the
sentence with the highest priority.
Example I: Position is read in priority order: GGA, GLL and. RMC.
Example II: BTW/DTW is priority first with: RMB, BWC and BWR.
The transmission ID (the first two letters after “$”) is ignored by the Server.

12.8 Special NMEA sentences
The Server can read 2 special NMEA sentences which can be send from a PC.
One contains TBS (target boat speed), the other CAD (customised angle data )
and CFD (customised fixpoint data ). These 3 data are retransmitted on the
Nexus Network and can be displayed as a sub-function on the Multi Control
instrument.
To get the sub-function TBS, select main function SPEED and the ”empty” subfunction.Then press PAGE and SET together followed by CLEAR.
To get the sub-function CAD, select main function NAVIGATE and the ”empty”
sub-function.Then press PAGE and SET together followed by CLEAR.
To get the sub-function CFD, select main function WIND and the ”empty” subfunction.Then press PAGE and SET together followed by CLEAR.

12.8.1 Baudrate control,
It is possible to change the baudrate from 4800bps to 19200bps.
To do that, a PC is required. Note 19200 is not to be considered
as NMEA since the standard states 4800. See 12.8.1
a. The Requesting unit is allowed to transmit the message:
"$PSILBPS,19200,R,<CR><LF>"
once every 2s at nominal 4800 bps with normal NMEA start bit and stop bit settings.
This message may be received on any of the two Server ports.
b. The receiving unit (NX2 Server) will Confirm message:
"$PSILBPS,19200,C,<CR><LF>"
and send it back on output ports to the requesting unit.
c. When the requesting unit receives the same message but with the flag set to "C"
(Confirmed), both server ports (A and B) are set to 19200bps and transmission may
start at the new baudrate. The sending unit may now stop sending the proprietary
request message since it has entered the higher baudrate. There is no way back
unless there is a power loss.
From power up, baudrate is always set to 4800 and the above procedure must be
repeated.
The receiving unit (Nexus Server) will always check for the proprietary message when
in normal baudrate, not when in high baudrate.

14.2 Nexus Netw ork introduction and user policy
Introduction:
The Nexus data bus is a multi talker multi receiver data bus
specially designed for marine navigation applications. It utilises
the RS485 standard with up to 32 senders and/or receivers to
form a Local Area Network. Data is transmitted synchronously
with 1 start-bit, 8-data-bits, 1 parity-bit, two stop-bits in 9600 baud.
User policy:
The Nexus data bus is open for new users and applications
without a licence or a licence fee. The data bus is, however, the
property of the manufacturer, which means the specification must
be followed in order to protect the manufacturer’s commitments to
the Nexus data bus performance and safety.
For most PC-applications, the full duplex interface (Art. No.
21248), will be a very useful tool for monitoring real time data, to
edit and store waypoints to PC-file or to Server and/or to the NX2
GPS. The interface is supplied with a cable for connection from
PC to the Server or NX2 instruments and/or the NX2 GPS. A 9pole D-sub connector is connected to the RS232 port on the PC.
