Interfacing a Raystar 130/150 GPS Sensor to a C/E-Series Widescreen MFD

It is recommended that the C/E-Series Widescreen MFD be updated with the latest corresponding Widescreen MFD software and be disconnected from the 1st generation SeaTalk bus, as the MFD will now be interfaced to the system via SeaTalkng.

Any Raymarine products featuring a 1st generation SeaTalk interface which do not additionally feature a SeaTalkng interface (ex. ST40/60+ Instrument Displays, ST6002, S3G, etc.) should be interfaced to one another, in any order, using standard SeaTalk cable. SeaTalk cables can be joined using D244 SeaTalk Junction Blocks, splices, marine grade terminal strips, or R55006 SeaTalk Auxiliary Junction Boxes. SeaTalk cable is available in 15", 1m, 3m, 5m, and 9m lengths (D230, D284, D285, D286, and D287 respectively). This method of interfacing is referred to as a SeaTalk bus. The SeaTalk bus will need to be branched or extended and connected to a D244 SeaTalk Junction Block. The SeaTalk Junction Block will in turn be connected to the yellow (SeaTalk) port of a SeaTalk to E22158 SeaTalkng Converter (updated w/v1.21 or later SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter software) using the cable supplied with the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter Kit. The Raystar 130/150 GPS Sensor will in turn be interfaced to one of the white SeaTalkng spur ports using the cable supplied with the GPS sensor. The SeaTalkng power cable supplied with the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter Kit will be interfaced to the other white SeaTalkng spur ports of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. One of the two SeaTalkng Termination Plugs supplied with the SeaTalkng Converter Kit will need to be installed in either of the two blue SeaTalkng backbone ports of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter. The E-Series Widescreen MFD will be interfaced to an A06028 SeaTalkng T-Piece or an A06064 SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector using an appropriate length of SeaTalkng Spur Cable ((400mm (A06038), 1m (A06039), 3m (A06040), 5m (A06041)). The remaining SeaTalkng Termination Plug supplied with the SeaTalkng Converter Kit will need to be installed in either of the two blue SeaTalkng backbone ports of the SeaTalkng T-Piece or an SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector. Finally, a SeaTalkng Backbone Cable of appropriate length (400mm (A06033), 1m (A06034), 3m (A06035), 5m (A06036), 9m (A06068), 20m (A06037)) will be used to connect the remaining blue SeaTalkng backbone port of the SeaTalkng T-Piece or a SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector to the remaining blue SeaTalkng backbone port of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter.

For systems featuring no additional SeaTalk or SeaTalkng devices:

The C/E-Series Widescreen MFD will be interfaced to one of the white SeaTalkng spur ports of an A06064 SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector using an appropriate length of SeaTalkng Spur Cable. The Raystar 130/150 GPS Sensor will be interfaced to one of the white SeaTalkng spur ports of the SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector using the cable supplied with the GPS sensor. An A06049 SeaTalkng Power Cable will be interfaced to the remaining white SeaTalkng spur ports of the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter and to a 12VDC power source. Finally, an A06031 SeaTalkng Termination Plug will need to be installed in each of the two blue SeaTalkng backbone ports of the SeaTalkng 5-Way Connector.

See the diagrams below addressing these installation methods.
