Autohelm 5000+ to nmea 2000

Vote 0 Votes

I have an autohelm 5000+ that I would like to interface to my nmea 2000 backbone. I am trying to figure out how to do this. Is it just a matter of cabling or do I need an interface? I was hoping I could just get a seatalk cable and put a modbus/nmea2000 connector on it. Is this the case? If so does anyone know the pinouts?

  • Ok so I found the seatalk to seatalkNG converter and gather that I will need this to get the autohelm on my nmea 2000 backbone. If that works will a ST70 autohelm display be able to control the 5000+ autohelm?

  • So I phoned Raymarine and they claim that I need to use an older ST6002 display combined with my original ST5000+ display. I don't understand why if I keep the ST5000+ display and use the seatalkNG converter that the ST70 autohelm control wont work. Anyone?
