Using Data Marine speed sensor with Raymarine Display

I decided to try to design an electronic adapter to allow me to use the existing Data Marine through hull with a ST60 speed display. The DMI is a magnetic reluctance unit( small signal) and the RM is a hall effect output ( 0 to 12 volts) with variable resistance for the water temp. The tech support folks recommended a resistor across the pins to simulate the temp probe. I have boards on order and should be able to test the idea in a couple weeks. Has anyone also attempted to mix transducers with the Raymarine ST series??
6-24-09 PCB's arrive in the mail and the original circuit design was an overkill and was simplified. Next is the 1/8" spade connectors to mount it to the back of the ST60 speed. When they arrive it will be time for the sea trial and speed calibration check. I don't know if the calibration range wil be adaquate..

I've used Raymarine ST60 supplied speed and depth/temp transducers with TackTick instrument heads. That worked quite well, especially since the transducers are actually the same ones supplied by Airmar to TackTick AFAICT.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
