NMEA2000 and STNG
We already have an existing N2K backbone installed on a 34' boat with flybridge. ACU200 and all other Raymarine devices including EV1, ES 97,
ES127...The is a XBrand GPS sensor N2k that is also tied in.
There are terminators situated and every thing works just fine.
The end user now wants to ad a SMART CONTROLLER...
The SEATALK to STNG CONVERTER kinda messes up the neatness of the N2K BACKBONE.
I suppose i could Take terminator out of N2K backbone and Use Blue Black STNG BACKBONE cable with end lopped of to a N2K field connector and Then hook up STNG Backbone to N2K BACKBONE. All the time making sure we only have two TERMINATORS...Would really like to simplify this more but not sure it's possible.Thank you in advance

RE: NMEA2000 and STNG
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Jerry,

Raymarine's SeaTalkng backbone is based upon the same physical layer specified by the NMEA 2000 specification. When initially introduced, marine electronics manufacturers were free to develop their own NMEA 2000 networking components ... and many, such as Raymarine did, while including adapters for NMEA 2000 devices and networking components which settled upon DeviceNet components (ex. Micro-C, etc.). As you have suggested, the marine electronics industry seems to be migrating more and more toward DeviceNet networking components. However, as the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter features SeaTalkng backbone sockets rather than DeviceNet Micro-C sockets, it will be necessary to install field installable DeviceNet Micro-C plugs to a SeaTalkng backbone cable to permit it to be mated to a NMEA 2000 backbone which has been constructed from DeviceNet components. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject. A feature request has been logged to introduce a SeaTalkng backbone to DeviceNet Micro-C (M) adapter and a SeaTalkng backbone to DeviceNet Micro-C (M) adapter to support needs such as that which you have described.
