NMEA 0183 wind instrument?

Can anyone tell me if the "Horiizon WS45 Wind/Speed Point" is a NMEA 0183 wind instrument?. It's an older unit and is working perfectly.
I have the manuel but it does not say which leads me to believe it isn't. Would like to interface it with my auto pilot.

According to Standard Horizon it is not. They say the pointer is analog.

HGlad - if you decide to upgrade your Horizon WS-45 I would like to purchase your current unit from you. Please let me know if you would like to sell it.
