Can Raymarine MFDs be powered from a SeaTalkng backbone?

Unlike Raymarine autopilot control heads (ex. p70/p70S/p70/p70RS, ST70, etc.) and instrument displays (i50, i60, i70, ST70, etc.), SeaTalkng Smart Transducers (ex. P79S, DT800, DST800, etc.), and EV-1 Sensor Core, Raymarine's MFDs are exclusively designed to be powered via the power cable which is packaged with the MFD. The power cable should be powered by a switched 12 VDC or 24 VDC circuit (see the MFD's installation guide for power requirements). Raymarine's MFDs a neither designed to be powered by nor supply power to a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone. Accordingly, the SeaTalkng /NMEA 2000 backbone must be powered via a power cable (preferred / best practice) or autopilot ACU/Course computer which will be interfaced to a spur socket within the backbone which will be located at the approximate midpoint of the backbone's LEN load.
