[DG11] E120 - Seatalk2 AIS Receive

[DG11] E120 - Seatalk2 AIS Receive
Hi

I need to connect an AIS (Both 0183 & 2000 out capable) unit to an E120 where the 0183 port is already taken and set to 4800 for GPS out to a VHF. So I can't change this to 38,400 for AIS In.

I'd like to use the E120 Seatalk2 to SeatalkNG adapter cable to connect this to the AIS using NMEA2000 instead. Question I had is.... can the E120 receive AIS sentences via Seatalk2/NG.

Thanks for your help and apologies in advance if this has already been answered but I couldn't find the answer in the forum. I did find the engine data FAQ but this didn't mention AIS. I am assuming this is possible but wanted to get your feedback.
Thanks again.

Matt

Hi Matt,

The SeaTalk 2 of the E120 classic will not accept AIS data on NMEA2000, since the E120 precedes NMEA2000 AIS messages by too many years.

Depending what AIS receiver you are using, you can change the E120 NMEA port to 38400. and most AIS receivers and transceivers have a multiplexer built in which can then be used to output the slower 4800 baud rate GPS data for the vhf.

Thanks
Derek
