Seatalk to 0183 or N2K

I have been using Maretron WSO100 wind sensors for the last six years.


These things are great -- WHEN THEY WORK


This summer I've had the second failure in this amount of time


When I initially installed this system, I left the old Raymarine wind sensor on the masthead with all the wiring. I thought I might want to have a backup.


So now I REALLY want a backup


I never connected it because I didn't want to mess with Seatalk, but I did keep the old ST60 wind instrument in case I ever needed it to make the old wind transducer work.


Can anyone recommend a really straightforward, simple, elegant, inexpensive way to translate Seatalk into 0183, or probably better, N2K?

The old ST-60 reads the wind sensor and outputs seatalk. You can convert that to NMEA-2000 for about $150 using a converter available from Raymarine.

This one?


Raymarine SeaTalk1 to SeaTalk NG Converter Kit


That seems like a reasonable solution. I'll have to find a place for the ST60 at the nav table somewhere then.

That's the one I used on previous boat to get my ST60 wind and depth/speed data onto the N2K network. Then data repeated and used by B&G Zeus 2.

Alternatively to ST60 + STConverter you may use the ITC-5 alone. Input is wind sensor (also depth, rudder, etc ...) output is STNG.

Remember you must have an i70 display unit to calibrate the sensors connected to ITC-5.

I find the old ST-60 stuff to be very rugged and suitable for the purpose. I think there are quite a lot of these gathering dust around the world.

and you're correct, I forgot about the I70 ! Using the ST/STNG converter is much more cost effective then !


BTW, I still have those old st60 wind & tridata, they are tough and reliable for sure. But I am very very happy with my new i70 & p70 (part of AP upgrade to EV400). Easy access to all info, no need to read the manual 5 times to calibrate an instrument.
