RE: [CA11] Quantum 2 Radar/AxiomPro/Older SG3 Raymarine Autopilo
Brian,

Q1: Assuming I wish to to track DSC targets on my Axiom Pro and have a 2008 Ray218, would the E70196 provide that functionality rather than utilizing the Actisense Gateway?
A1: Negative. Per the FAQ found here, the E70196 VHF NMEA 0183 to STng Converter Kit is exclusively designed to support one-way communications (backbone => NMEA 0183. The NMEA 0183 output of the VHF radio may be either interfaced to one of the NMEA 0183 input ports of the MFD or may be interfaced to an 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 data bridging device (ex. Actisense NGW-1-ISO-STNG).

Q2: Assuming I have the AR200 plugged in to the network will utilizing the E22158 from the network to the SG3 be sufficient for providing the required heading data for functionality? This, again, would eliminate the use of the Actisense gateway.
A2. Negative. The heading data rate supported by SeaTalk is 1Hz. If abandoning use of a fluxgate compass, the autopilot course computer would require heading data from a 10Hz NMEA 0183 data source. In such cases, the autopilot course computer would be disconnected from all SeaTalk devices other than the autopilot's control head and wireless autopilot controller. A 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 data bridging device would then be used to interface the autopilot course computer to the system.

Q3: For GPS data for our EPIRB, would we be able to patch in to the E70196, again eliminating the Actisense gateway?
A3. As long as the EPIRB was designed to support 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications, then this would indeed be possible.
