Replacing a C-Series Classic MFD(s) with an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD(s)
Replacing a C-Series Classic MFD(s) with an a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD(s)

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

MOUNTING: Raymarine offers the following adapter mounting kits (mounting plate, trim bezel, and sun cover) to replace flush mounted MFDs with c/e-Series MFDs:
• R70010 (C/E80 Classic MFDs)
• R70011 (C/E120 Classic MFDs)
• R70008 (C/E90W MFDs)
• R70009 (C/E120W MFDs)
Raymarine does not presently offer adapter mounting kits to replace flush mounted MFDs with an e7x MFD, e165 MFD, or and a/eS/gS-Series MFD.

POWER: The currently installed power 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, waypoint, routes, tracks, etc. between the system's MFDs. To view Raymarine Ethernet networking products, click here.

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 C-Series Classic MFD's NMEA Cable will need to be disconnected from this 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 C-Series Classic MFD be interfaced as a spur to SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone, then the Data Master a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD may instead be interfaced to this backbone 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.

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 e-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, SR6, or SR100 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. Should 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 several 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.

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 a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFDs and Axiom MFDs. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject.
