TackTick and NMEA 2000
 
I want to connect my TackTick wind instrument to my NMEA 2000 network. The T122 interface is NMEA 183. Can it be wired into a 2000 network?

Thanks! Time for Ray to update its interface.

Not to hijack the thread - but since Raymarine was mentioned in context with this...

My 25 year old CC cruiser doesn't have a wind transducer.
Maine - what I hear you saying is I can put a TickTack transducer on the mast, plug the T122 interface to the ActiSense NGW1, hook that to the RayMarine NG network which is interfaced via my e7d.
The benefit here of course is no wires up and down the mast.

Raymarine SeaTalk NG Networking

I won't have any seatalk1 devices so I don't need the e85001?

The only other things I'm adding in are going to be the autopilot (raymarine x10 with a st70 control head), sonar (airmar p79) and eventually radar (also raymarine).

That's exactly what I'm trying to do! I have an E7 and X5 on a NMEA 200 network with a triducer. This would complete the system.

Of course the drawback is these units are HORRIBLY UNRELIABLE. You could not pay me to install FREE TackTick stuff on my own boat, let alone actually pay for it..

If you want more detail on why they are not a good choice feel free to PM me...

Maine,

I'm sure you have legit reasons for staying away from TT, and I have only had my wind unit for 1 season with the wired (non-solar) display. FWIW I never had a problem with it. Beginner's luck? I'll find out!

I do wish you luck with it....

Re: TackTick and NMEA 2000
 
I just did the review search - and the price comparison.

Crossed it off my list.

I'm going to stick with a ST60 wind transducer (part E22078) at 440 ish bucks the aforementioned E85001 network hub/converter at 50 ish bucks and the ST70 displays along with the e7d as the main MFD.

I really can't see the sense in the ST70 wind transducer at 450 bucks because you also have to buy the transducer pod for another 270 bucks and that just adds something else to mount somewhere (and fail sometime).

It's not like the ST70 is super fast/accurate etc..or I can use that extra millisecond of knowing there is a wind shift or puff..

Wireless isn't worth the extra 1000 bucks in price, interference problems etc..

Ratymarine said to use theNMEA183 port on the E7 so an adapter isnot needed!
