Analog video radar cable test
Analog video radar cable test

In situations where radar cables are commonly connected and disconnected from the radome, radar pedestal, display, junction boxes, or terminal strips, failure of the radar cable may occur. The following cable resistance checks are commonly used to test an analog video radar cable designed for use with hsb/hsb2/SL Pathfinder Series Radar Displays, C-Series Classic MFDs, and E-Series Classic MFDs:

As no tolerances are specified within the expected resistances of the cable test, the tester will be primarily seeking to determine whether the resistance checks indicate any open circuit readings. Failure of the radar cable test may necessitate replacement of the radome connector, radar pedestal connector, or the radar cable itself.

As indicated above, the part number for the Radome Connector is R126 and the part number for the Open Array Pedestal Connector is R58056. Unfortunately, these to parts are no longer available. As all of Raymarine's radomes and open array radar pedestals introduced in the last nine years have been designed with Ethernet communications interface, Raymarine ceased production of radar cables for radomes and open array radar pedestals having an analog video interfaces several years ago. Accordingly, availability of radar cables for radomes and open array radar pedestals having an analog video interfaces is now limited.
