[CA] pulling Nmea 2000 from 400g course computer. - bucksh0t - 04-24-18 07:13 PM

I have a Raymarine 400G course computer along with the 6001+ control unit. I am using a Furuno if nmea2k2 converter to pull the fast heading from the nmea 0183 outputs on the 400G and convert to nmea2000. I am not getting the data but my units show the if nmea2k2 in the string.
Please help

For the benefit of others viewing this post, the 400G Autopilot Course Computers only support SeaTalk and NMEA 0183 communications. NMEA 0183 Port 1 of the 400G Autopilot Course Computer is designed to output 10Hz stabilized heading data and rudder angle data only and would be used for this application. The baud rate for the autopilot course computer's NMEA 0183 interfaces is 4800 BAUD. A simple test to verify whether a device's NMEA 0183 output port is transmitting would be to connect a low cost analog voltmeter to the NMEA1 OUT terminals of the autopilot course computer. Should the autopilot be powered ON and have operational NMEA 0183 terminals, then the meter's needle will bounce between +3 and +5 Volts DC. Should this be observed, the the autopilot course computer would be deemed to have an operational NMEA 0183 port and to be transmitting. Further support from that point should be sought from the manufacturer of the NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 data bridging device and/or Furuno.
