RE: Raymarine Smart Pilot S3G

Unfortunately, the photo of the S3G's terminal strip does not tell me much. The currently installed rudder reference transducer will be retained for use with the ACU-400. The Evolution autopilot components (EV-1 Sensor Core, ACU-400, p70S) have a SeaTalkng communications ports which would enable them each to be interfaced as a spur to a powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng backbone. The Evolution autopilot packages typically include SeaTalkng networking components to create a SeaTalkng backbone having four spur sockets. A SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter which has been updated with the latest ST-STng Converter software will need to be added to the backbone to accommodate interfacing the unpowered SeaTalk bus which will includes the MFD and older autopilot control head to the SeaTalkng backbone. As the SeaTalk port of C-Series Classic MFDs is designed to output power to a small SeaTalk bus, the red lead of the SeaTalk cable connecting the MFD to the SeaTalk bus will need to be severed and insulated to prevent shorting.
