Non-NMEA Transducers

Does anyone have some old transducers that are non-NMEA output? If so are you willing to sell / donate them.

Reason is that my friends and I have to come up with a project in order to graduate. So the idea of making a conveter box for old transducers. The box will convert the non-NMEA output to NMEA-183 or so we hope.

Any help will be greatley appreaciated.

Thank you

I was under the impression that most current transducers are passive (non-NMEA) devices.

Raymarine ST60 transducers are certainly passive. Their high-end ST80 devices are active although they connect to the SeaTalk bus rather than NMEA.

Not sure about B&G gear.

You are probably right. I am not to familiar with transducers so I just figured that the most popular ones already spit out a NMEA output.

Out of curiousity, as a sailor what do you feel would give you an advantage in a race. By that I mean information you feel you need to set a route or adjust something in your boat but takes up entirely too much time to receive or calculate.

I don''t race... however my recent instrument upgrade was undertaken because I wanted to optimize velocity made good and see true wind direction & strength.
