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

Please note that the A-Series Classic MFDs were not designed to share cartography, fishfinder imagery, Satellite Weather, or Satellite Radio control with other MFDs (including other A-Series Classic MFDs).

MOUNTING: Raymarine does not offer adapter plates to support mounting an Axiom MFD within the cutout which had been previously occupied by an A-Series Classic MFD. Accordingly, will be necessary to install a MFD having a larger footprint, fabricate a mounting plate, or resurface the mounting surface in which the Axiom MFD will be installed.

POWER: The currently installed Power/NMEA 0183 Cable will need to be replaced with the Power Cable supplied with the Axiom MFD.

ETHERNET: Should more than one Raymarine products 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, waypoint, routes, tracks, etc. between the system's MFDs. To view Raymarine Ethernet networking products, click here.

Axiom MFDs feature a single Ethernet network socket permitting them to be interfaced to one additional 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 to the MFD.

RADAR: Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add radar features to an Axiom MFD.

SEATALKNG/NMEA 2000: The SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 communications interface of Axiom MFDs feature a DeviceNet (M) socket. Should the A-Series MFD be interfaced as a spur to SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone, then the new system's Data Master Axiom MFD may be interfaced to the SeaTalkng backbone via a SeaTalkng to DeviceNet Female adapter cable (A06045).

EXTERNAL ALARM: The A80614 SeaTalkNG Auxiliary Alarm Buzzer may be used to remotely sound alarms for Axiom/Axiom Pro/Axiom XL MFDs running the latest available Raymarine product software updates. A comprehensive list of alarms supported by the A80614 SeaTalkNG Auxiliary Alarm Buzzer may be found within Appendices A through R of the of the SeaTalkNG Auxiliary Alarm Buzzer Installation Instructions.

NMEA 0183: Axiom MFDs do not feature a NMEA 0183 communications interface. 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 C-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 A-Series Classic MFD be interfaced as a spur to NMEA 2000 backbone, then the Data Master Axiom MFD may instead be interfaced to this backbone via an appropriate length of SeaTalkng Spur to DeviceNet Cable. Should the SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone be constructed from third party NMEA 2000 networking components featuring DeviceNet sockets, then the Axiom MFD may be interfaced to the NMEA 2000 backbone via an appropriate length of NMEA 2000 Cable having DeviceNet plugs of appropriate gender.

Video Input: Raymarine’s Axiom MFDs support integration with compatible IP Cameras and compatible FLIR/Raymarine thermal cameras having an IP video interface.

Video Output: Axiom MFDs feature Miracast technology to support repeating the MFD's screen image onto a TV which has been accessorized with a Miracast dongle.

FISHFINDER(s): Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to add fishfinder features to an Axiom MFD.

SIRIUSXM SATELLITE WEATHER/RADIO FEATURES: In order to utilize SiriusXM Satellite Marine Weather and SiriusXM Satellite Radio features, a SR200 or SR150 SiriusXM Satellite Weather / Radio Receiver must be interfaced to the system, SiriusXM Marine Weather and/or SiriusXM Marine Satellite Weather subscriptions for the SiriusXM Satellite Weather / Radio Receiver must be purchased through SiriusXM, and the vessel must be located within the coverage footprint of SiriusXM satellites.

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.

WAYPOINTS, ROUTES, AND TRACKS: Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject.

CARTOGRAPHY - Navionics cartography which has been programmed onto CF memory cards may not be used with Axiom MFDs. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing cartography which may be used with Axiom MFDs.
