Digital Yacht Seatalk 1 To USB Interface
The SeaTalk™ interface, originally developed by Autohelm in the early 1990s, was included on most Autohelm and Raymarineproducts up until about 2012. As a result there are thousands and thousands of boats around the world that have a SeaTalk1 network and may want to get data into an open, NMEA format for use with iPads, tablets and PCs or to add standard NMEA sensors to a SeaTalk system. Although some instruments/MFDs/autopilots have an NMEA 0183 interface, they do not always convert all of the data or are difficult to access.
Digital Yacht's SeaTalk to NMEA (ISO) Converter is a small but powerful interface that provides bi-directional conversion between a SeaTalk network and an NMEA 0183 network or device. Taking its power from the SeaTalk network, the ST-NMEA Converter features a full, multi-transistor SeaTalk 1 interface, an opto-isolated NMEA 0183 input and differential NMEA 0183 output that allows key navigational data to be reliably shared between the SeaTalk and NMEA0183 networks.
For developers and advanced users that want to access the raw SeaTalk data, the ST-NMEA converter can also be configured to work in a special “raw data' mode ($STALK) which is gaining support in some Open Source projects.
The ST-NMEA (ISO) Converter is ideal for connection to one of Digital Yacht's wireless NMEA servers, allowing SeaTalk owners to go wireless and aUSB Version of the ST-NMEA Converteris also available for direct connection to a PC, Mac or even a Raspberry Pie embedded Linux system.
