[CA] AIS700 to Tacktick T122 and Actisense NGW-1 - AlexandreBrisebois - 04-18-18 10:20 PM


I have a brand new AIS700 transponder and I would like to connect it to my existing instruments, which are:
- a Tacktick T122 Interface,
- 2 Standard horizon VHF: 1600 Explorer and HX471S.
- 1 Actisense NGW-1 (to connect to other devices such as autopilot.)

Looking to do 2 things:
- Connect both VHF directly to the transponder (safer connection config).
- Send the Tacktick 122 info (wind, speed over water, etc) and GPS (from the AIS) to the Actisense. To do so, I'm looking to connect the AIS as the input of the T122 and the Actisense (connected as a listener) as the output of the T122

In attached files the wiring diagrams of each devices.

I've try to figure out by myself but after a few hours, I'm clueless.
Any advise will be very appreciated.

Many thanks,

Unfortunately, neither of the suggests which you have proposed are valid. The TackTick system has no ability to display AIS data nor support data input from a device transmitting NMEA 0183 sentences at 38400 BAUD. The NMEA 0183 communications interface of the T122 Tack Tick Wireless Interface is designed to exclusively support 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications. Additionally, the AIS700 will only transmit GPS position data derived from its internal GPS receiver from its 38400 BAUD NMEA 0183 output port. While it is possible to interface the NMEA 0183 output of the T122 to the 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 NMEA 0183 input port of the AIS700 to have data from the TackTick system be multiplexed with AIS data and then output via the 38400 BAUD port of the AIS700, the device which in turn would then be receiving this data would also need to support 38400 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications.

Perhaps the best tack to take in assisting you is to have you begin by identify each of the marine electronics products which you have and then identify what you are seeking to achieve (ex. supply my third party chartplotter (make/model not presently specified) with instrument, GPS, and AIS data, etc.).
