RE: [CA11] New Raymarine system & questions . . .
A1. Correct. Additional options may be found within first paragraph of the FAQ found here.
- OK, thanks.

A2. I would recommend double checking with Simrad's support team to verify that the RS35 feature a DeviceNet (M) socket. If so, then my response to Q1 would apply to the RS35 as well.
- OK, will double check with Simrad.

A3a. The chosen spur socket will not support a balanced LEN Load. A spur socket should be located closer to the center of the backbone's LEN Load.
- I will reconfigure for a balanced load and submit another diagram.

A3b. Yes.
- Will do.

A3c. The answer is dependent upon whether you can locate a breaker rated for 5A. If not, then an inline fuse should be installed.
- Will do.

A4. While it is less important to balance the LEN load in small backbones, doing so would still be recommended. Should a problem arise with an unbalanced backbone, one of the first recommendations which would likely be suggested is to balance the backbone's LEN load and then to re-test the system.
- OK, got it.

A5. This is an incorrect statement. Only an ACU200 and ACU400 support supplying power to a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone.
- OK, got it. Separate 12V connection to the STng backbone and not via the ACU100.

A5. Yes. However, it would be considered to be a best installation practice to install them as individual spurs to the backbone. As this is a sailing vessel, should it feature an instruments pod, then please click here to view the FAQ providing recommendations for routing the backbone.
- OK, will run them off separate spurs.

A8. Negative. As long as a third party AIS receiver/transceiver supports NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 communications (the latter must be bridged to NMEA 2000) and is transmitting properly constructed NMEA 2000 PGNs, then the Axiom MFD should support plotting AIS targets and displaying data associated with these NMEA 2000 PGNs.
- OK, thanks.

A9. The iTC-5 will actually be the data source for depth, speed, and wind data. As this system features only one source of data for each type of data, the Data Sources feature need not be exercised.
- OK, thanks. Good reason to use the ITC-5.
