The goal is to install a Si-Tex MDA-5 AIS
transciever into the Raymaine STng backbone visible on our E127 MFD.
seems pretty basic Power, VHF
, VHF Antenna
, GPS Antenna
ito the AIS
. NEMA2000 > STNG out....
The concern is that we'll have some type of data conflict with 2 different GPS
sources on the STng backbone.
To be upfront, I talked to techs at Raymarine
, they mulled it over and concluded that it would be fine. Per Raymaine the MFD uses it's internal GPS for charts
and such and the AIS uses its internal GPS for AIS type affairs.
The Techs at Is-Tex weren't so positive and felt that the entire system should only see one GPS input.
Has anyone else installed a Is-Tex AIS into a Raymarine
There is really no downside for me installing it and seeing what happens but that's not ususuall how I roll.
Thanks for looking,
