Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

Hello,

I have Raymarine EV-200 autopilot with the ACU-200 and EV-1 sensor (the one without NMEA2000 output) and B&G mfd and all the other instruments and i want to know if anyone made them work together?

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

I have the EV100 autopilot system, and a B&G Zeus2 plotter that I added to the SeatalkNG network with the raymarine NMEA2000 adapter cable ... I have no other networked instruments.



Plotter gets heading data OK, and autopilot gets all GPS and waypoint data from plotter OK ... what I can't do is control the autopilot from the plotter ... B&G and Raymarine don't seem to play well together for that ... I have to use the autopilot control instrument to control the pilot, but I can get it to steer to a waypoint set by the plotter.

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

I have a B&G Vulcan 7 plotter, Standard Horizon AIS, and most everything else is Raymarine. It has re-affirmed that while NMEA 2000 is a common language, the accents in that language can limit some features from working.


It's a lot like trying to understand somebody with a very heavy French/Russian/Chinese/Other accent when they are new to English and trying to describe something. While a person can do a lot of searching for words to find the right word to convey their thoughts, the devices on the NMEA bus can not.

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

Have a similar experience. B&G/Simrad AP, Garmin plotter and an old Raymarine speed and depth. Connected the Raymarine Seatalk to their Seatalk-SeatalkNG converter and connected that to my NMEA2000 backbone. I can see the speed and depth on the Garmin MFD and the B&G data displays but the Garmin has limited control over the AP.

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

you either need to make n2k to seatalkng drop cable adapters or buy them. or split the bus into half seatalkng and n2k.

it's the same thing just different connectors.

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

I've said it before, but if you buy a seatalkng cable and an NMEA2000 cable (or get one with a device you buy), cut both in half and solder them back together you'll get two conversion cables. The only difference is that seatalkng has better connectors on the cables.

Re: Seatalk ng and B&G NMEA2000 mix?

thank you for you help

do you connect them as spur/drop cable for each network or connect as backbone?

Is there any of these going to fit without any cutting?
