As most of my sailing instramentation and hardware is now NMEA 2000, the last two sensors I need to address are the transducers (Depth, Temp, Speed). After these I can Retire my Hydra 2000 and all the assicated mountain of wires.
I have three devices in the forward hallway floor hatch- all of them seem to be analog and designed to connect to the Hydra.
1) Some small temperature sensor transduces that is not hooked up.
2) A "small diameter" depth sounder (two wires pins 29,30 oh hydra) with a cable that has Airmar tranducer printed on it.
3) A "Larger diameter" Airmar ST850 device (Speed and Temp) (ST850-INS-BG P/N: 31-590-23-02)
I "think" that the ST850 device is a P17 housing ( 51mm or 2") from searches.
There is this device that seems like it could be fit for replacing the ST850 that has NMEA 2K Speed, Depth, and Temp.
Am I correct that this would work? I am sure otherse here have done something simalar- I also think Brian for Delos may have for instance.
Am I not thinking of something or have this all wrong? What have you done?
Thank you !
