Dear ianc,

Thank you for your post.

The A46052 cannot be used in place of the fistmic and the connectors are different, you can still connect it ti the back of the RAY218E.

If you do have 2 connectors the same, send an image for us to look at in further detail.

Many Thanks
Louise

Hello ianc,

Louise is out of the office at the moment, so on her behalf - I don't have a Ray218 and Raymic to hand at the moment to look at the physical connectors, but the service information that I have shows that the pin-out for the two connectors is different:
Fist mic:
  1. LED CONT
  2. MIC-1
  3. SPK
  4. INT PTT
  5. MIC SW1
  6. MIC SW2
  7. MIC DET
  8. GND

Raymic:
  1. LED CONT
  2. MIC SW1
  3. MIC SW2
  4. PTT
  5. MIC DET
  6. DATA_A
  7. DATA_B
  8. MIC RELAY
  9. HAIL DET
  10. HAIL MUTE
  11. HAIL RELAY
  12. GND

Although the connector may fit, I would not expect it to work in the front connector.

Regards,
Tom

Hi Thanks for that I thought that it would be different even though it does fit . So does that mean I will need a connection cable for the rear connector which is different.....Many Thanks

Hello ianc,

You can see how that handset connects and the cables available/required in the Ray218 installation manual which you can download from http://www.raymarine.com.au/service-and-...documents/, https://raymarine.app.box.com/s/55w633qm...4073161585
