Autohelm to seatalk ng
Hello:

We are installing a new e165 MFD, quantum chirp radar, thermal imaging, Sirius weather...

We have a perfectly working (1990) Autohelm ST50 instruments, wind, speed, depth and Multi.

1. Can we use existing transducers for speed, wind and depth? If so, what is needed to connect them to the seatalk NG network?

2. Can we use the existing ST50 instruments to display readouts of the wind, speed, depth and to send the information to the seatalk NG network, or the reverse, for the MFD to send the data to the instrument displays via a seatalk to seatalk ng converter?

3. We have an autopilot SG3 (2004) course computer with an ST6001 control head. Can we interface the autopilot or the entire system including wind, depth and speed to the MFD?

Thanks,

Jeff
