About the Fusion MS-NRX300
Not your average marine remote
Not your average marine remote
A wired remote with an LCD screen is a wonderful thing to have, especially when you're on a larger boat. Knowing which song's playing is great, but it's much more important to know what the weather is doing — or about to do. That's what makes Fusion's MS-NRX300 marine-rated remote control/repeater such a great addition to your vessel's entertainment/information system.
This NMEA 2000-certified remote/repeater can communicate with other NMEA 2000 devices connected to the network. This wired remote gives you the multi-zone entertainment control you want, plus important info you need, like depth, speed, and wind direction. With the MS-NRX300, you'll be able to quickly access important NMEA 2000 network data — all in a device that fits in the palm of your hand. The MS-NRX300 monitors the following data:
- Wind direction
- Wind speed
- Speed over ground
- Speed through water
- Water temperature
- Atmospheric pressure
Versatile, tough, and easy to install
Installing an MS-NRX300 remote in each of the independent audio zones of your vessel will give you localized zone volume and global source control. You can control each audio zone independently using multiple remotes connected to a compatible Fusion receiver, or manage your whole system from a single remote. Wherever you are, you'll see what you're doing on the multi-line 2.6" LCD screen. The bonded glass screen makes it easy to access your iPod music library and view track, artist and song information day or night.
The MS-NRX300 features a fully sealed enclosure that's rated IPX7 for water resistance, so it's perfectly happy when used on a swim platform or out on deck in the salt and spray. As a part of Fusion's rugged "True Marine" lineup, it's backed by a 3-year warranty.
Connect this remote to your NMEA 2000 network
This versatile remote is also easy to install. It comes complete with the cabling you'll need to integrate it into an existing NMEA 2000 network. All you need to do is connect the receiver and the MS-NRX300 to the same backbone for instant communication. You'll need an additional cable to connect this remote to Fusion MS-IP700, MS-AV700 and first-gen MS-RA205 marine receivers: the CAB000860 cable for NMEA 2000 networks or the CAB000859 cable for Fusion audio-only networks.

More details on the Fusion MS-NRX300
Marine Wired Remote: Fusion's MS-NRX300 marine wired remote can be used to add localized control of a compatible Fusion marine entertainment system (sold separately) to any vessel.
Compatible Fusion Products: The MS-NRX300 marine wired remote is compatible with the following Fusion marine stereos -
- MS-UD Series: MS-UD750, MS-UD650, MS-UD755
- MS-AV Series: MS-AV750, MS-AV650, MS-AV700i, MS-AV755
- MS-RA Series: MS-RA70N, MS-RA205, MS-RA670, MS-RA770
- MS-BB Series: MS-BB100, MS-BB300
- MS-IP Series: MS-IP700i
Connectivity: You can connect the MS-NRX300 remote control to a Fusion stereo using a Fusion remote control network or an existing NMEA 2000 network, depending on the stereo. Some stereo models support the powered NMEA 2000 network connection only.
- When connecting the MS-NRX300 to an MS-UD650, MSAV650, MS-UD750 or MS-AV750 stereo through a remote control network, you must enable the NRX POWER setting to provide power to the remote control.
- The Fusion MS-BB100 and MS-RA70N support the powered NMEA 2000 network connection only.
The MS-NRX300 requires an additional cable for connection to a MS-IP700i, MS-AV700 and 1st Gen MS-RA205 marine stereos. Two cables are available - CAB000860 for NMEA 2000 networks and CAB000859 for Fusion audio only networks.
You may need to obtain a red, NMEA 2000 Power Cable (CAB000541) and an additional NMEA 2000 T-connector (CAB000581) to create a NMEA 2000 network.
Multi-Zone Capability: You can install a MS-NRX300 remote in each independent audio zone, up to four zones depending on your Fusion marine entertainment system, to create localized volume control, as well as, global source control. Now you have even more control in creating a customized audio entertainment experience around your vessel.
Optically-Bonded 2.6" LCD Screen: The MS-NRX300 features a large, high-contrast, daylight viewable, optically-bonded 2.6" LCD screen that provides a crystal clear display and prevents fogging on the high seas - making it easy to navigate and stay in control of your marine audio entertainment experience. You can adjust the display's backlight brightness and contrast level.
IPX7 Waterproof: Perfect for installation on a swim platform, deck or within the cabins, the MS-NRX300 is designed and engineered for the marine environment. The MS-NRX3000 complies with IPX7 waterproof standards.
NMEA 2000 Certified: The MS-NRX300 is certified for connection to any NMEA 2000 network making for a quick and easy installation. Once connected, the wired remote will double as a NMEA Repeater. The MS-NRX300 remote control can be configured to display supported NMEA2000 network data from compatible marine electronics connected to the same network. The following information is available -
- Wind Direction
- Wind Speed
- Speed Over Ground
- Speed Through Water
- Water Temperature
- Atmospheric Pressure
Mounting Options: The MS-NRX300's innovative design allows you the option of either surface-mounting the wired remote to the bulkhead or the ability to flush-mount the wired remote and integrate it into a glass helm. The wired remote control mounts flush to the bulkhead using the four included screws (3.75" x 1.6875" apart) and also requires a 1.625" cut-out to accommodate routing of the attached cable. A self-adhesive foam gasket is included to provide a secure seal between the cut-out and the wired remote. The outer dimension of the wired remote's front-panel is 4.375" (w) x 2.8125" (h) x 1.125" (d).
