Replacing hsb/hsb2/SL Pathfinder Series Display(s) with an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD(s)
Replacing hsb/hsb2/SL Pathfinder Series Display(s) with an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD(s)

If replacing a hsb/hsb2 Pathifnder Series Display, then all hsb/hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays within the system must be replaced to permit the displays to share radar imagery, fishfinder imagery, cartography, satellite weather, IP camera video, etc..

POWER: The currently installed Power/NMEA 0183 Input Cable will need to be replaced with the cable supplied with the a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD.

ETHERNET: Should more than one Raymarine product featuring an Ethernet network (RayNet/SeaTalkHS) interface (a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDS, CPxxx Sounder Modules, Quantum/Digital/HD Digital/SuperHD Digital Radomes and Open Array Radar Scanners, Thermal Cameras, CAM200IP, etc.) be installed onboard, then these devices must be interfaced to a common Ethernet network to fully communicate with one another. Failure to do so will prevent the sharing radar, cartography, fishinder, weather, IP camera video, waypoints, routes, tracks, etc. between the system's MFDs.

Raymarine's 6" and 7" a/e/eS-Series MFDs feature a single Ethernet network socket permitting them to be interfaced to one other Raymarine product featuring an Ethernet network interface. Raymarine's 9", 12", and 16" a/c/e/eS-Series MFDs feature two Ethernet network sockets permitting them to be interfaced to one other Raymarine product featuring an Ethernet network interface. Raymarine's 9", 12", and 16" gS-Series MFDs feature three Ethernet network (Gigabit and POE) sockets permitting them to be interfaced to one other Raymarine product featuring an Ethernet network interface. Should the MFD(s) not feature sufficient Ethernet network sockets to interface all of the Raymarine products featuring an Ethernet network interface, then it will be necessary to install a HS5 RayNet Network Switch(es) to support interfacing the additional Ethernet devices. As the Ethernet network circuitry of a/c/e/eS-Series MFDs is not operational when these MFDs are switched OFF, many customers opt to connect all of the Raymarine products featuring an Ethernet network interface to a HS5 RayNet Network Switch(es). The latter installation method offers a degree of redundancy to the system as well a some flexibility in choosing which MFD will function as the system's Data Master.

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

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

NMEA 0183: The NMEA 0183 leads of any NMEA 0183 devices which are presently interfaced to the leads of the Pathfinder Series Display's Power/NMEA 0183 Input Cable and NMEA 0183 Output Cable will need to be disconnected from these cable and will instead be spliced to the corresponding leads of the a9x/a12x/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD's Power/NMEA 0183/Video Input Cable. As the a6x and a7x MFDs do not feature a NMEA 0183 port, should the system not feature a larger a-Series MFD or a c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD, then it will be necessary to instead interface the NMEA 0183 device(s) to a powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone to which the a6x or a7x MFD has been interfaced as a spur. NMEA 0183 to SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 data bridging devices (ex. Actisense NGW-1-STNG, Actisense NGW-1-AIS, etc.) are available from third parties to support interfacing NMEA 0183 devices to systems featuring a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs.

SEATALKNG/NMEA 2000: Should the a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD need to be interfaced any to any devices having a SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 communications interface, then the Data Master a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD may be interfaced to the SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone to which such devices have been interfaced via an appropriate length of SeaTalkng Spur Cable. Should the SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone be constructed from third party NMEA 2000 networking components, then please note that Raymarine offers SeaTalkng to DeviceNet Male (A06046) and SeaTalkng to DeviceNet Female adapter cables (A06045) as well as Stripped End Spur cables (A06044) to support interfacing Raymarine products to third party NMEA 2000 networking components.

Analog Video Input: Raymarine’s c-Series MFDs, e7/e7D MFDs, and eS-Series MFDs support video input from one analog NTSC/PAL video source. Raymarine’s other e-Series MFDs and gS-Series MFDs support video input from up to two analog NTSC/PAL video sources (second via optional R70003 e-Series Accessory Video Cable). Should a compatible Raymarine or FLIR branded thermal camera need to be interfaced to the system, then it will need to be interfaced to the video input socket of the a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD’s Power/NMEA 0183/Video Input Cable. Other analog NTSC/PAL video input devices may be either interfaced to the video input socket of the a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD’s Power/NMEA 0183/Video Input Cable or to the video input socket of the R70003 e-Series Accessory Video Cable.

Video Output: The R70003 e-Series Accessory Video Cable may be used to interface a 9” and larger e-Series MFDs to a monitor or TV supporting 720P @ 60Hz. The gS-Series MFDs as well as the 9” and larger eS-Series MFDs feature a HDMI port to permit the MFD to be interfaced to a monitor or TV to repeat the MFD's screen image.

FISHFINDER(s): Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add fishfinder features to an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD.

SIRIUSXM SATELLITE WEATHER/RADIO FEATURES: It is recommended that a SR150 SiriusXM Satellite Weather / Radio Receiver be used to support the SiriusXM Satellite Weather and SiriusXM Satellite Radio features of an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD. While it is possible to interface a SR50 Sirius Satellite Weather/Radio Receiver to an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD, Sirius Satellite Radio will not be supported with this Satellite Radio Receiver and some satellite weather graphics layers will not be supported.

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.
