TZ2 with B&G Hydra 2000 and SIMRAD AP22

Postby 452 » Thu Jan 25, 2018 5:46 am

Just purchased a 45' sailboat that came with 2 12" TZ2 units with new Furuno radar that the previous owner installed in late 16. The sailing instruments and autopilot don't seem to be integrated. My question is can the following be integrated with the TZ2's?

1. B&G Hydra 2000 (depth, wind, speed). I have the FFD which supposedly has 0183 out.
2. Robertson(SIMRAD) autopilot - AP22 (SW V1R6)

If so, will I need multiple 0183 to 2000 adapters and I'm thinking I may need the analog version of one adapter to interface the wind.

Thanks for any advice in advance,

You should be able to drive the pilot with one of the 0183 outputs from your TZT2.

If you wish to get heading from the pilot to the TZT2 for overlay and ARPA features, you will need an 0183 to 2000 converter.

If the B&G can provide standard NMEA 0183 data, you should be able to use another 0183 to 2000 converter to bring that data to your NMEA 2000 bus where the TZT2 can access it.
