Hello I have a Simrad
and want to connect it to my Raymarine
Element 7 so i can see AIS
targets on the chartplotter
. The Raymarine
uses ENMA2000 micro-C connection and the AI50 is Simnet (NMEA-2000).
Has anyone had any experience networking these two devices that could offer any insight?
They are both sending the same data type just on slightly different connections. Can I get an N2K Micro-C to Simnet crossover cable and plug
the two devices directly into each other OR do I have to go via an NK2 Micro-C backbone and then get a simnet to n2k micro-c crossover cable from the AI50 into the backbone?
I'm looking at options and it's looking very expensive to buy a backbone and associate cable/connectors. I'm playing with the option of just the one cable to connect the two devices direct but struggling to find any information if this would work
