Re: Masthead Wind Transducer Compatibility
No, you won't need a Navico transducer, but you will need to have one that is NMEA2000 to have it work over the NMEA 2000 network. Some older transducers are NMEA0183, or even analogue. (B&G spelling...) The difficulty is that the raw NMEA2000 sentences will not be calibrated, and you will need some means to doing so, which is why a display that matches the transducer may be a help.
The Triton instruments/displays can be calibrated in the Triton processor/display to account for misalignment, but the Vulcan Operating manual does not mention calibration as far as a quick search shows.
Current B&G high end stuff such as VMHU is 3 phase analogue, and most/all of the paddlewheels/anemometers are simple pulse rate, as they update faster than a Network transducer, and can be calibrated in the H5000/WTP3 p
