Marine electronics are rebooting / re-starting when engine is started - Chuck - Raymarine - Moderator - 06-11-18 03:10 PM

Raymarine recommends that its marine electronics be isolated from engine starting and other electrical equipment having high current demands (i.e. thrusters, winches, pumps, macerators, engine starter motors, etc.). The temporary high current demands from such equipment can drop the available power (current x voltage) below operating ranges that the marine electronics were designed to operate within. Such instances of under-powering the marine electronics may cause one of more of the marine electronics products to reboot/re-start. Under rare instances the power surges resulting from the operation of equipment having high current demands may adversely affect the performance and longevity of marine electronics.

There are several third products available to isolate the marine electronics from electrical equipment having high current demands. Some of these electrical isolation products additionally feature power conditioning. Some of the more commonly used electrical isolation products include:
- Blue Sea Add-A-Battery Kit
- NEWMAR Start Guard
- NEWMAR NAV-PAC
