How could I connect to easyTRX3 and Programming-Tool?

Please connect the USB cable to your PC or Laptop directly to a free USB slot.
Using an external USB-Hub, we recommend to use one with an own external power supply.

After connected well, you should see an COM-Port within the Programming-Tool.
Try the highest number first. If its not the right, just select another and press “Connect”.
You´ll be forwarded to the next page automatically.

If you don´t see any COM-Port please try to use another USB-Slot directly on your PC/Laptop.

Could I use USB for powering the easyTRX3?

Yes and no,

if you connect the easyTRX3 only by USB, only the microcontroller is active!

That`s fine for programming your shipdata already at home.

There is an easy reason for that:
The max. current from your USB socket is approx. 500mA.
But if the easyTRX3 should transmitt, we need for 26ms a current of 2A.
Thats absolutely too much for USB.

If you are connected by USB only, following parts are inactive:
-WiFi deactivated, if available
-GPS receiver and internal antenna deactivated
-AIS transmitter and receiver deaktivated
-NMEA2000 deactivated

If you are connected by USB only you´ll see following LEDs:
Power
RX only
