DESCRIPTION of DMK 11A & 11A-GPS
DMK-11A Hardware
1.1 Introduction. Congratulations on your purchase of a DMK 11A or DMK 11AGPS (GPS enabled) wireless device. The DMK-11A is a wireless gateway that
transmits marine electronics data from a variety of marine instruments via Wi-Fi
(802.11b) to devices, including laptop and desktop personal computers and a
range of compact portable devices including Apple iOS devices.
(iPhone/iPad/iPodTouch) The DMK-11A is capable of connecting and
transmitting to as many as three wireless devices simultaneously. However the
box is originally configured to stream to a single device. More technical
information can be found online at:
http://dmkyacht.com/reference
Throughout this manual, when reference is made to the DMK 11A, unless
otherwise noted, descriptions are equally applicable to the DMK 11A-GPS.
Where differences apply, it will be described.
1.2 Background. The DMK 11A was created with the realization that these
devices make ideal platforms for displaying marine data. These devices have the
added function that software apps can easily be upgraded to incorporate new
features unlike fixed function marine displays which can be upgraded only
through a complicated firmware download if at all. Because they are portable, the
devices support a number of wireless connections-Bluetooth and Wi-Fi being the
most common. Wi-Fi was chosen as the wireless connection for the DMK 11A
because it is available across the widest variety of portable and fixed platforms.
1.3 Infrastructure Connection, Using Wi-Fi also allows the DMK 11A to connect
to the Internet through Wi-Fi Access Points available at many marinas. This
means that it is possible to monitor your boat from a remote location with the
DMK 11A.
1.4 Components. The DMK 11A consists of a small waterproof, impact resistant
polycarbonate box with a single 10 pin flat ribbon cable and one or two (GPS
option) antenna connectors. Figure I shows the DMK 11A-GPS box. Inside the
box are:
-
A high performance low power embedded processor
An NMEA2000 interface chip set
Two NMEA 0183 interfaces
A Seatalk interface
An integrated Wi-Fi module with external antenna connector
6 LEDs that provide status information
1
-
Optional GPS module with external antenna connector (-GPS
option only)
A 16megabyte EEPROM for storing data packets for later transfer
over Wi-Fi
Figure 1-1 The DMK 11A-GPS
1.5 Input Protocols, The three protocols of the DMK 11A (NMEA2000,
NMEA0183,and Sea Talk) support virtually all existing marine electronics
instrumentation. The DMK 11A has been designed to support data transfer on all
three protocols simultaneously so that it is possible to serve multiple instrument
types with a single DMK 11A.
1.6 Configuration Memory, The DMK 11A runs firmware programmed into the
Flash Memory of its embedded processor. This flash memory is preserved even
when power is removed from the unit. Configuration information written into the
unit is also preserved when power is removed.
1.7 Power Supply. The DMK boxes are designed to be powered by a negative
ground DC electrical power source (your boat’s battery) ranging between 6 and
35 volts DC. Power can be provided through the NMEA2000 interface or the
SeaTalk interface or can be provided through a separate power circuit. The DMK
11A consumes about 80 milliamps at 12VDC and less than 50ma at 24VDC. The
two Ground wires are connected in parallel and either or both can be used as a
Ground Return (using both is recommended). Please see SECTION II for
installation instructions.
1.8 Wiring Connections. Table 1-1 lists the color coding of the flat ribbon cable
that is attached to the I/O connector and brought out of the box through the
environmentally sealed cable gland. Please note that while all DMK boxes have
the same cable, the blue wire (GPS output) is attached only for the DMK 11AGPS.

LED 0 (the green one) is closest to the ribbon end of the box. Each time
electrical power is applied to the DMK 11A, for example, when the battery switch
is turned on, all the LEDs flash on for ½ second and then off.
1.10 Transmitting Data. The DMK boxes operate in transmit mode only, sending
information to your wireless device. Boxes with DMK Rev 7 Firmware cannot
receive information transmitted back from the device. (This is to avoid receiving
signals from other vessels in close proximity.) However, this may change with
later updates to the DMK Firmware, which will be available online.

SECTION II
Installing the DMK Box
2.1 Location. Mount the DMK box near your vessel’s instruments and a source
of DC electrical power. It should be in an interior (dry) location away from
extreme temperatures and vibration. The DMK box should NOT be located in an
engine room or other location enclosed in metal. The DMK box should be
located at least eight inches away from places people sit or sleep.
2.2 Antenna. Mount the DMK box with the antenna pointing up (near vertical). It
has been found that the 2 dB gain Wi-Fi antenna provided has a range of at least
150 feet in most mounting situations. Other higher gain antennas are readily
available and it is possible to mount the antenna in a different location from the
DMK 11A by using low loss SMA type coaxial cable to remote the antenna. A
higher gain antenna can be mounted by unscrewing and removing the factory
antenna and attaching the new antenna’s SMA coaxial connection in its place.
2.3 Electrical Power. Connect the brown wire of the connector wire ribbon to a 6
– 35 Volt DC power source. Power can normally be supplied from the
NMEA2000 interface or the SeaTalk interface or can be provided through a
separate power circuit. Connect BOTH the White AND the Black wires of the
ribbon to your instrument’s signal ground or to the boats negative electrical
ground. If connecting to Seatalk you must connect to the Seatalk ground to
receive all the data from your SeaTalk instruments. With other instruments,
connecting to the NMEA 0183 negative ground may be required to receive a
proper signal. But most times the vessel’s DC negative will work. Always
connect both the Black and White wires to the same place. If the LED lights in
the DMK box are not active after you connect the power, use a circuit tester to
determine why power is not provided to the box. Most likely moving the ground
wires will correct the issue. On some boat’s electrical systems, it may be
necessary to jumper the SeaTalk and/or NEMA ground and the boats electrical
ground system and then connect the white and black DMK box ground wires.
2.4 Instrument Connections. Connect the other wires of the ribbon to the
corresponding connections on your SeaTalk and/or NMEA instrument outputs.
Diagram examples of recommended wiring are included in Apendix A – Wiring
Installation Examples.
2.5 Unused wires, for example SeaTalk red wire if your vessel does not have
SeaTalk, may remain unconnected. Bare wire should not be allowed to come
into contact with other electrical devices or the vessel’s electrical ground.

Section III
Connecting Your iOS Wireless Device to the DMK 11A & Configuring the
WiFi Settings
3.1 First Time Connection
The first time you connect your mobile
device to a DMK Box you must perform
the following configuration in order for
your mobile device to connect
automatically each time you return
onboard and power on your instruments.
Open “Settings” on your device.
Locate available WI-FI Networks.
Choose “dmkyacht”.
Enter the password “0123456789”
5
3.2 Adjust the IP info
Set Auto-Join to “ON”.
Set IP Address to “Static”.
Set IP Address to “192.168.1.2’
Set Subnet Mask to “255.255.255.0”.
Set Router to “192.168.1.1”.
You now should have data packets
streaming to your iOS device. You can
confirm that packets are arriving by
opening the DMK App and looking at the
Packet Log page. Also this device is now
configured to connect and receive data
packets every time it sees the DMK Yacht
Network. If you are attaching more than
one device to a DMK Box the next device
must be set to receive packets at the IP
Address 192.168.1.3 and if you connect a
third box it must be IP 192.168.1.4. Also
you must reset the box to stream to 3
devices. That must be done through the
DMK App. (See Section 3.6 Changing the
Number of Attached Devices)
At this point, you should see data from
your boat’s instruments on your iOS
device and you are ready to go.
If you do not see instrument data on your
iOS device, double check the steps above.
If problems persist, trouble shoot your
installation in accordance with Section IV of
this manual.

3.3 Changing the WiFi Settings of the DMK Box
The DMK 11A can be reprogrammed using the DMK App to change the Wi-Fi
settings (e.g. Network Name, password, number of attached devices) The
configuration settings menu is found in the DMK App by going to the Instrument
List page and tapping the Settings button. Any changes to the DMK Box’s
wireless settings will require you reconnect the mobile device using the new
wireless settings.
3.4 Changing the Network Name (SSID)
You can change the name of your wireless network from dmkyacht by going into
the Settings and under DMK Box Settings; tap the right arrow at SSID. Enter the
new SSID (Network Name) and tap Tell the DMK Box to use this SSID. You will
be asked once more to Update DMK Box. Tap the button and the box will
reprogram itself. You can tell the box received the command because all the
LED’s will blink 8 times then the
box will go through its startup
sequence. At this point you will
lose connection with the box and
will need to reconnect to the
network using the new SSID. If the
LED’s do not flash after you send
the command, power cycle the
DMK Box and look for the new
network name in your iOS settings.
3.5 Changing the Network
Password (WEP Code)
You can change the password
required to connect to the DMK
Box from its default 0123456789 by
going to the Settings and under
DMK Box Settings, tap the right
arrow at WEP Code. In the Enter
the new WEP code here screen
write a new password then tap Tell
the DMK Box to use this Code. You
will be asked once more to Update
DMK Box. Tap the button and the
box will reprogram itself. You can
tell the box received the command
because it all the LED’s will blink 8 times then the box will go through its startup
sequence. At this point you will lose connection with the box and will need to
reconnect to the network using the new SSID. If the LED’s do not flash after you
send the command, power cycle the DMK Box and look for the new network
name in your iOS settings.
3.6 Changing the number of Attached Devices
You can stream data to more than one IP Address by changing the Attached
Device Count setting. Under DMK Box Settings, tap the right arrow at Attached
Device Count. You will have the option of selecting 1,2,or 3 devices. Select from
7
the menu of 1, 2, or 3 then tap Update DMK Box. The second device needs to
attach at IP 192.168.1.3 and the third device needs to attach at IP 192.168.1.4.
3.7 Changing the Baud Rate of the NMEA 0183 Ports
The DMK Box is originally configured with the Primary 0183 Port set to 38400
Baud and the Secondary 0183 Port Set to 4800 Baud. If your data sources to
not output at those baud rates then it will be necessary to reconfigure the DMK
Box. To do so tap the right arrow at Primary or Secondary 0183 Baud, then
select the baud rate you want. Tap again when you are prompted Update DMK
Box. If the baud rate does not reset, power cycle the box before trying to reset it
again with the app. The baud rate most likely will change after the power cycle.
If not power cycle the box to have it take effect.
3.8 Third Party Software Configuration.
Most times after downloading a new app, some software configuration is required
to let the software know where it must source its data. The configuration
interface of every app is a little different and you may be asked to enter one or
more of the following:
-
-
IP Address/ Server. Set to the IP address the device connects to
the DMK Box with. If the box is in default mode and you are
connecting one device this is 192.168.1.2
TCP/UDP. Set to UDP
Port Number. Set to 1703

SECTION IV
TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
4.1 Troubleshooting your iOS installation.
4.1.1 Most installations are trouble free. However sometimes settings must be
changed on the box or wiring must be scrutinized for the box to function fully and
correctly. Table 3-1 below show some common problems people have after
installing a DMK Box.
Problem
Check
Solution
Cannot Connect to DMK
Box.
LED’s. If none are
blinking the box does not
have power. If LED 0 is
blinking rapidly then the
DMK Box is still
searching for a network.
If LED 0 is blinking once
per second then the box
has automatically
connected to another
device.
-Check if there is power
to the DMK Box (See
3.1.2)
Connected but cannot
see all the data

wiring or baud rate
issue. Check wiring and
source baud rate and
match against the DMK
Box settings.

-Change App Settings
-Wait to see if the box
finds a network and the
LED Blinks then pauses,
then blinks again.
-Check that the DMK
Box has not connected
with other mobile
devices on the vessel
-Make sure another app
is not running in the
background
-Make sure another
device onboard is not
connected to the same
IP Address.
-May be an issue with
the WEP Code (See
3.1.3)

4.1.2 If the LED lights in the DMK box are not active after you connect the
electrical power, use a circuit tester to determine why power is not provided to
the box.
4.1.3 If you see no packets in the DMK App’s packet log, yet the DMK Box
appears to be connected to your iOS device,(you see WI-FI bars on the iOS
status bar) there may be a problem with the WEP code password. The solution
for this is to use the “Forget this Network button in the iOS WI-FI settings, then
follow the instructions in paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2 to reconnect.
4.2 Manual Reboot to Factory Default Settings
4.2.1 Sometimes it is more convenient to reset the DMK Box back to its factory
defaults if the password has been forgotten or if other hardware has been
reconfigured. To set the Box back into the factory default mode follow the steps
below.
- Turn off the electrical power to the DMK 11A Box.
- Connect through a jumper or just by touching, the Seatalk wire to the
two
ground wires.
- Turn the electrical power back on to the DMK 11A.
- You should see all the LEDs blink several times shortly after powering
on.
- After the LEDs are done blinking, remove the connection between the
Seatalk and the Ground.
4.2.2 Once the box is in Factory Default it will be streaming to the default IP
Address and Port using the SSID “dmkyacht”. The WEP code will be
0123456789. Follow the instructions in paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2 to reconnect your
device.
4.3 DMK Support
