Full Version: [CA11] Interfacing Ray 73 VHF AIS & eS127 MFD
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have interfaced my new Ray 73 VHF AIS to an existing eS127 MFD via a Seatalkng cable to a white port on a SeaTalk to SeaTalkng converter. The VHF's AIS shows up on the MFD's Set up - Maintenance - Diagnostics - Select Device listing (V70517, 1080481, STng, CAN Address: 75). On the VHF the AIS is set to On and Network output to NMEA 2000. On the MFD NMEA Setup screen Bridge NMEA Hdg is Off, NMEA Input Port 1 is set to NMEA 4800 (to accommodate other devices on the network receiving NMEA0183 data from the MFD), and NMEA Input Port 2 is set to AIS 38400. The VHF/AIS does not appear on the External Devices list and the interfaces bar at the bottom of the screen shows "No AIS". Next steps please.
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Afunnell,

Please note that when interfaced via SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 communications, no settings changes need be made to the MFD's NMEA 0183 settings.

Has the backbone been connected to a switched 12VDC power circuit?
If so, are any devices listed within the eS127 MFD's devices list?
What version of software is installed within the MFD?
