RE: [CA11] NMEA 2000 and Axiom 9

As with the Identify Engines feature within LightHouse II software, the Identify Engines feature of LightHouse 3 software is exclusively designed to be used with engine systems which have been interfaced to the marine electronics backbone using Raymarine's ECI-100 Engine Gateway. When a third party engine gateway(s) has been used, the MFD will simply function as a repeater device and will expect that the third party engine gateway(s) are transmitting engine data PGNs featuring Device Instance Number(s) which are consistent with the NMEA 2000 convention specified within FAQ found here.

On a separate note, it appears that your SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone has not been correctly created. A single powered powered and properly terminated SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone. The SeaTalkng Networking Reference manual may be found here. Your diagram appears to use a spur to connect the Ancor backbone to the backbone for the Raymarine electronics. Please click here to view a FAQ addressing how to interface a backbone which has been constructed from SeaTalkng components to a backbone which has been constructed from third party NMEA 2000 networking components.

Additionally, should the third party backbone have its own power insertion point, then a power insertion point would not be installed within the backbone which has been constructed from SeaTalkng components. The spur socket used for single power insertion should be located at the approximate midpoint of the backbone's LEN load.
