e7D can only see one Fresh Water Tank
How many Instances of Fresh Water Tanks can the e7D recognize under the N2K Fluid Level PGN?

My e7D apparently is only able to see one and I have two Fresh Water tanks to monitor on the N2K/STng network. My N2K network analyzer can easily see both tanks properly configured as Fluid Level/Fresh Water/Instance 0 and Instance 1.

If the e7D design fails to support the N2K Standard and can only recognize one, could I configure the second as a Gray Water tank and fool the e7D into recognizing it that way?


Thanks, Lawrence

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Lawrence,

Please click here to view a thread in which I had previously addressed this subject. While the NMEA 2000 Standard provides guidelines for assigning instance numbers, it does not specify the number of instances which a product must support. Unfortunately as of LightHouse II v19.03, only one tank each for fresh water, grey water, black water, and live well is supported.
