From the 90's until about 2012 almost all car helmet, Raymarine and some Raytheon products were built to SeaTalk standard. SeaTalk is still widespread worldwide and many boat owners are looking for a solution to convert SeaTalk to NMEA 0183 or to transfer their SeaTalk data to a PC, Mac or Linux system.
Raymarine's E85001 converter is no longer available, and although some instrument systems are equipped with NMEA 0183 interfaces, they do not always convert all data, or spatial confinement makes networking difficult.
The SeaTalk NMEA converter from Digital Yacht is a small but very powerful device for bi-directional data exchange between a SeaTalk network and an NMEA network or NMEA device. Power is supplied from the SeaTalk network. The converter has a multi-transistor interface, optically isolated NMEA0183 data input and differential NMEA 0183 data output, ensuring reliable data exchange between SeaTalk and NMEA networks.
Developers and advanced users who want to access the SeaTalk source data can set the converter to a special $STALK mode, which has already found favor with some open source projects.
The converter can easily be networked to one of our NMEA servers, so SeaTalk owners can also work wirelessly.
