... send Signal K keys in a ST2000 network?
I would like to see the battery voltage on my plotter. The workflow should be the same for every Signal K key, that is to be sent in a ST2000 network.

The voltage is measured by an ads1115.

It has the Signal K key „electrical.batteries.service.voltage“in OP.

The PGN for battery related data within a ST2000 network is PGN 127508.

If I activate sending PGN 127508 on the CAN2USB adapter output, the plotter shows 0.0 Volt.
That is clear, as I can see in the CAN tab Diagnostic, that the PGN 127508 contains only zeros.

My question is, how can I link the Signal K key
„electrical.batteries.service.voltage“ to the PGN 127508?

I guess, the format is a bit tricky, because the PGN 127508 contains multiple, battery related, measurments.

May be I could change the Signal K key to an other string? But how to name it?

Yes. You are right.
I think SignalK has changed. There is no Properties.dcSource.voltage anymore.

(To make it work solutions:
1. Replace Properties.dcSource.voltage with electrical.batteries.service.voltage in line 244 of
2. Edit openplotter.conf and replace electrical.batteries.service.voltage with Properties.dcSource.voltage.)

Better way is:
Go to SignalK page (openplotter.local:3000) and login
Appstore->Available  install signalk-to-nmea2000
Server->Data Providers OPcan
select Actisense NGT-1 (canboatjs)
press restart (upper right corner)
Server-<Plugin Config  Convert Signal K to NMEA2000
select Active
select Enable (under Battery (127506 & 127508))
select + button
in "Signal K battery id" enter service
in "NMEA2000 Battery Instance Id" enter 1
press submit
press restart (upper right corner)

I am not on the boat in the moment. When I am, I give it a try.
