Replacing an E-Series Classic MFD(s) with an Axiom MFD(s)
Replacing an E-Series Classic MFD(s) with an Axiom MFD(s)

Please note that the Axiom MFDs may not be installed within an Ethernet (SeaTalkhs/RayNet) network which additionally includes E-Series Classic MFDs. As such, should the current system presently feature more than one E-Series Classic MFD, then all of the E-Series Classic MFDs will need to be replaced with Axiom MFDs and/or a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs. Following the release of LightHouse 3 software for a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs, Raymarine’s Axiom MFDs and a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs may be mixed or matched in any combination within an Ethernet network. The Axiom MFDs and a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs are designed to share all system data (except for NTSC/PAL video) with one another via the Ethernet network to which they will be interfaced.

MOUNTING: Raymarine does not presently offer adapter mounting plate/bezel kits to replace flush mounted E-Series Classic MFDs with Axiom MFDs.

POWER: Axiom MFDs are designed be powered via the Power Cable included within the package of the the Axiom MFD. Accordingly, the currently installed E-Series MFD Power Cable will need to be replaced with the Power/NMEA 2000 Cable supplied with the Axiom MFD.

ETHERNET: Should the E-Series Classic MFD currently be interfaced to the system via a SeaTalkhs Cable, then the Axiom MFD replacing the E-Series Classic MFD may be adapted to use the currently installed SeaTalkhs Cable by using an A80160 SeaTalkhs (F) to RayNet (F) Adapter.

RADAR: Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add radar features to an Axiom MFD or a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD.

SEATALK: Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to interface products having a SeaTalk interface to a SeaTalkng backbone, to which the Data Master MFD will also be interfaced.

EXTERNAL ALARM: Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add an alarm to an Axiom MFD or a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD.

NMEA 0183: An E70196 VHF NMEA 0183 to STng Converter Kit would typically be recommended for those simply seeking to supply GPS data to a DSC VHF radio. For those seeking bidirectional communications with NMEA 0183 listeners and a NMEA 0183 talker, the NMEA 0183 leads of any NMEA 0183 devices which are presently interfaced to the E-Series Classic MFD's NMEA Cable will need to be disconnected from this cable and will instead be interfaced to a NMEA 0183 to SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 data bridging device (ex. Actisense NGW-1-ISO-STNG, Actisense NGW-1-ISO-AIS, etc.) are available from third parties to support interfacing NMEA 0183 devices to systems featuring Axiom MFDs.

SEATALKNG / NMEA 2000: Should the Data Master E-Series Classic MFD be interfaced as a spur to a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone, then the Data Master Axiom MFD may be interfaced to this backbone via a DeviceNet (F) to SeaTalkng Spur Adapter (a 400mm version of this adapter has been packaged with Axiom MFDs). Should the SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone be constructed from third party NMEA 2000 networking components, then MFD may be interfaced as a spur to the NMEA 2000 backbone via an appropriate length (up to 6m) of spur cable from the supplier of the system's NMEA 2000 networking components.

Satellite Weather/Radio: The initial release of LightHouse 3 software for Axiom MFDs did not include support for SiriusXM Satellite Weather/Radio. The LightHouse v3.3.170 software updated added support for SiriusXM Satellite weather for Axiom MFDs which have been interfaced via Ethernet communications to a SR150 SiriusXM Satellite Weather/Radio Receiver and LightHouse 3 v3.9.46 recently introduced support for the SR200 SiriusXM Satellite Weather/Radio Receiver which has replaced the SR150. Legacy SiriusXM Satellite Weather/Radio Receivers will not be compatible Axiom MFDs. A future LightHouse 3 software update may add support for SiriusXM Satellite Radio features to Axiom MFDs which have been interfaced via Ethernet communications to a SR150 SiriusXM Satellite Weather/Radio Receiver.

Video Input: Raymarine’s Axiom MFDs support video input exclusively from IP video sources (ex. CAM210IP, CAM220IP, FLIR M100/M200 Thermal Camera, etc.). Accordingly, should the E-Series Classic MFD have been interfaced to an analog video source, then this source would need to be encoded with a third party video encoder (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC) to viewed via the Axiom MFD.
FISHFINDER(s): Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add fishfinder features to an Axiom MFD.

Video Output: Video output is not available from Axiom MFDs.

PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION: While the replacement of this equipment is well within the capabilities of those familiar with marine electronics equipment installation, there will be some cable splicing and cable chasing required. Should this not be within your comfort zone or skills, then click here to locate a Certified Raymarine Installer in your area.

CARTOGRAPHY - Navionics cartography which has been programmed onto CF memory cards may not be used with a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs and Axiom MFDs. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject.
