Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

To mikeandanne, I did see inconsistencies also some times blips and pops of data where you get a momentary high reading. I use NodeRed to normalize the data and remove the pops this can be simply a 3 reading average or just rule out readings by margin of change. I think i have mentioned this in the ...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

I Had a chance to go to the boat and got the RS11 almost completed. There is a fare amount of fiddling to calibrate the gauges. The Tachs were simple as the PPR was 8 (this is the pulse per revolution) you set in the config tools. I had to use the windows config tool finally to set up the rs11. Once...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Its also important to note that the rudder and throttle positions are not working yet and just pumping out generic random data. So what you are saying is that you've managed to emulate the data stream that you would capture if I was trying to dock? The data im generating until i install the potenti...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

I tried to take a video but got caught with another issue the reflection on the Samsung tablet did not play nice i will have to get an anti glare. Its not so bad when your using it but on my phone taking a pic or video its awful. I have...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Thanks I figured for the ip cameras on the public wifi vpn would be the way to go. I ll check your suggestions what I would have to do, just haven't set a vpn up before or a rasberry. I have 35 yrs in medical equipment electronic repair so your project is right up my alley. I've had a lot of succes...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Well i think i have figured out the RS11 interface to the rasberry pi. I will be going to the boat to test it out later today. Basically I'm streaming the data out of the RS11 via USB to the Pi, Im using Node-red to pick up the data, parse and sort it and then using MQTT to distribute it and finally...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

I too am interested in your project. I put an RS11 in our 73 F36 when I owned her and two Lowarance 520c chartplotters on the flybridge console to get a set of guages with alarms in front of my view vs off to the right hand side where all the mechanical guages were. I monitored voltage, oil pressur...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Thanks for posting! I just ordered a RS11 to interface with the NMEA 2000 bus on our boat. I thought about designing my own, but after looking at what NoLand is offering, decided I could better spend the time on other boat tasks. I will post some more info on my owner's thread when I get it install...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

I am also very interested in this project, though I was planning to purchase the RS11 to output NEMA 2000 gauge data to my existing Lowrance display for direct data overlay onto the chart. I currently just have real time fuel data (gph for each engine and mpg), but it is certainly addicting! My que...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Hi G36, one other thing (its an idea i just had while re-reading your question to make sure i got everything). Im not sure what your expertise is but you could give it a try. Set up a PI'3 and install hostapd and openvpn (get hostapd working first), this will allow you to provide a wireless network ...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Hi G36, I use VPN and SMTP to get around the public/fire-walling that is usually present. In this particular marina I installed the internet installation and support the network so I have access to the firewalls but I still chose to implement my own vpn directly from the PI's and not make any change...

Re: Digital Dash and automation on Trojan F36 tri-fly

Hi Guys,

Just heading to the boat to install the system. Attached is the Dash on my PC. I will send more info once i get it installed on the boat latter today. Ive made lots of progress of the boat and will update the thread with the build process once this part is running.
