Connecting a Raymarine S2 to a e7 MFD .

How do l connect a Raymarine e7 MFD to my Raymarine S2 Smartpilot Course computer .

My current installation is creating a high current draw ( 12amps ) and is tripping my circuitbreaker .
The S2 has two Seatalk outputs , one l have connected to my ST6001 Control display which is connected to my ST60 Wind instrument which is connected to my ST60 Tridata display in a daisy chain fashion .

The second S2 Seatalk output is connected to my Seatalk-Seatalkng converter and this configuration creates this 12amp current draw that results in the circuit breaker tripping .

What l discovered today is that if l connect the converter directly to the ST60 Tridata display it all seems to work well .
My dilemma is that to run a Seatalk cable in a conduit up to the instruments involves a huge job of removing battery banks , fuel tank and a host of electrical components amounting to a massive project .

Am l connecting these components correctly and how do l avoid the huge job of running a new cable .
