NMEA 2000 conversion from sea talk

Recommended Posts

Has anyone converted their seatalk system to NMEA 2000? I have update to Raymarine Axiom chart plotter and I want to see all my engine information through the unit. Has anyone connected their seatalk cables to a NMEA 2000 backbone? I am going to upgrade he stereo to a Fusion 755 and it will connect to the Raymarine with the NMEA 2000 as well.

I have installed a J1939 (from the engine)  to nmea2k interface to do the same thing. My understanding is that the J1939 is a engine protocol that is used on cars and trucks that is a CAN type interface.

Now seatalk and NMEA2k is basically the same thing, other than the pin outs on the connectors. You should be able to build or buy a adapter.  So your engine/s have the Seatalk port for you to tap into?
