[CA11] Networking Question
I have an Axiom 12 on my boat (2018 Monterey 335 Sport Yacht) and am trying to learn more about the system for future expansion. Right now I have the normal sonar (not 3d) and also have the 260 VHF. I have the Quantum radar, but the factory did not wire it to the system, they rely on the wifi connection.

I want to hard wire the radar to the system and I want to add a few items to my system:
- FLIR M232 thermal camera
- A couple CCTV cameras

My main question is, what is the difference in the 2 network switches and which one will work for what I am wanting? I have not yet opened my dash to even see what is currently installed, but I am assuming the OEM system is not setup for future expansion.

RE: [CA11] Networking Question
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum PremierPOWER,

When interfacing the Axiom MFD to the radome and to a thermal camera, these products will communicate with one another via an Ethernet network. The parts shown below comprise a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone and would not be applicable to interfacing the Axiom MFD to the radome and to a thermal camera. The MFD would typically be interfaced to the Ray260 via a SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone.

Instead, the Axiom MFD to the radome and to a thermal camera will be interfaced to one another via an Ethernet switch, or more specifically via a HS5 RayNet Network Switch (shown below). The MFD and M232 thermal camera will each be interfaced to the HS5 RayNet Network Switch via an appropriate length of RayNet (F) to RayNet (F) Cable. A Digital Radar Cable or Quantum Data Cable will also be be interfaced to the HS5 RayNet Network Switch.
