SeaTalk to 0183

I would like to get data from my spare wind instrument, a Raymarine ST60, into my N2K network.

There are different converters available, but they do far too much and cost far too much for this simple application.

I don't need two way comms; I just need wind data sentences into my network.

I ran across this:

Thomas Knauf ****SeaTalk Technical Reference

Looks like about $3 worth of electronic components and a bit of soldering. Once I have data which can be understood by an 0183 listener, then I can get that data into my network by a few different ways (I have 0183 listeners on several devices).

Anyone tried anything like this?

I have also read that it might be possible to configure the ST60 wind instrument to output 0183. Anyone managed to do that?

Re: SeaTalk to 0183

Dockhead, the S60 Multi will not output wind data on nmea. The easy way is to look for a used Seatalk/nmea converter on eBay.

The proposed way of interfacing the physical layer then manipulating in software is excellent and would allow lots of options but it will require a PC to be on all the time - you will get tired of it quickly.

Dockhead,

I use a Raymarine E85001 for exactly that purpose. They haven't made them for a while, but I have a spare board that I can sell you. PM me if you're interested.

Dockhead, you might try AngusMcDoon, he is a member here, but a regular poster on YBW. He might be able to help.

Re: SeaTalk to 0183

Thanks for all the helpful comments. I'm following up on all of them and will post what I figure out.

I've got one of those units. I use it to go from Seatalk to N0183 to input into my PC serial USB port. I'm pretty sure it doesn't do N2K. Of course if you already have a 0183 multiplexer to N2K with a spare input then it should work fine. I'll bet there are a few E85001 units around for cheap as people are upgrading away from this level of kit now. Mine will be on Ebay someday. Can't promise when, sorry.

Re: SeaTalk to 0183

I also have a RM E85001 and USB converter in the "to be Ebayed" box. I've just been too lazy to photograph and list. I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for tho.
