Modern electronics in an older boat

Postby dcrahn » September 19th, 2017, 7:24 am

It's been a while since I've been on here, so much going on but I continue to plug away at my boat project. I am currently building a complete new dash for my Carver 2687 and the plan is to do away with all the analog gauges. The plan is to use two Raymarine 7 inch Axiom displays. Is there a company out there that makes an Interface between older analog engine outputs to the new digital electronics?

Yes, there is! I don't recall the names of them, but there are at least two companies that do it for the marine environment. Do some searches. If you don't find anything post and update and I'll see if I can find them again.

Noland Engineering, Actisense, and I think Maretron might have them too. Some of the navigation electronics manufacturers have their own modules as well I think.

Thanks for the information guys. I went on Actisense's website and it appears they have what I need. They have a Dealer that is not too far from me located in Lake City, SC, about 170 miles from my home in Springfield, GA.

Make sure it's their latest build that you're getting and not old stock. They had electronic component issues a few years ago. It was a supplier problem that they have since remedied.
