Two termination resistors are required on every NMEA 2000 network, one on each end of the trunk line. Normally, a male termination is used since male pins tend to point back to the power source. In cases where the gender is reversed, a female terminator may be required. The inline terminator is used where the network is terminated at a product, for example a GPS or weather station at the top of a mast.
- Screw terminal connector for positive connections
