RE: Add i50 data and Smart Controller to EV100 wheelpilot... is schematic correct?
Hello Bass,

Great description and drawings. Thank you - if only all support requests were as well put.

The only thing I'd say is that the total length of the spur cables to the i50 displays should be no more than 6m (more recent versions of the NMEA2000 specification discourage daisy-chaining as long cables or chains can cause unreliable comms.) The recommendation now is that each product is on its own spur back to the backbone.

Other than that, you have it spot on, and your system as-drawn will work fine as long as those spurs are a reasonable length.

Regards,
Tom

Please don't PM me asking for direct support, please ask a public question instead so that others can see the question and answer. Forum posts will always be answered before PM requests.
