Analog Volvo Penta
data from D2-55C to SeatalkNG, Seatalk
My VP D2-55C was the last (C) in this series not having EVC, but connected to its display by an analog cable. Volvo
does support a Y-cable (for a dual wheel
The (next) VP D2-55D was the first EVC motor
of VP which digitally connects to its displays and can digitally connect to a.o. SeatalkNG and display its data on e.g a C70. It needs a Y-split cable of VP and a connect cable and ECI-100 bridge from Raymarine
Answer from VP: Indeed, this can be done as of the D-version.
This fine if you own one but mine is C-version.
Now, I also realize that Motor
data pages exits already longer on MFD's so I believe that some must have invented an analog-to-digital interface.
Maybe not VP, maybe not Raymarine
, but fast motor cruising manufacturers?
I do not know.
Does anyone own, has seen, knows off, knows how to build an analog-digital bridge, convertor or interface.
Does not matter now whether this is SeatalkNG, Seatalk
(this will only matter if there are multiple solutions provided).
I am wondering why I cannot find anything on the web. Must be invented before.
