Preventing corrosion of socket and cable pins
Preventing corrosion of socket and cable pins

Raymarine products which are designed to be directly exposed to the marine environment feature gaskets to seal the product to the mounting surface. Should a Raymarine product be designed to have its power, communications, and transducer sockets exposed to the marine environment, then such products will be designed for use with cables featuring seals to prevent exposure of the pins of the sockets and cables to the marine environment. Should the Raymarine product remain connected to the power/transducer cable throughout its life, then the seal should prevent any corrosion of the cable or socket pins. However, should the be removed from its mounting location when not in use, then it would be recommended that dielectric compound (ex. Dow Corning DC4) be applied to the pins of the power, communications, and transducer cables to prevent corrosion.

Raymarine does not recommend any specific electronics contact cleaner. Should electronics contact cleaner be used, then care should be taken to ensure that the cleaner is safe for any plastics used in the construction of the product.
