[DG] Power to new MFD
I have a new eS128 plotter. I will be connecting it to my ST60 Speed, Depth, Wind and ST6001 AP control. I plan to use the SeaTalk to SeaTalk NG converter. Is it possible for the chartplotter to receive power through the converter to the SeaTalk NG or do I need to power the eS128 through the SeaTalk NG separately? I read it is preferable to power it separately, but wondered if it is required?

RE: [DG] Power to new MFD
Hi flywsteve

Thank you for your enquiry.

The eS128 MUST have it's own direct power supply since it will draw 4-5 Amps when powering up and with the illumination fully bright. So PLEASE power the unit directly.

In addition to this, the STng backbone will need it's own power supply as will SeaTalk, however, make sure that the power in the SeaTalk network is not connected to the converter - the achieve this, cut back and insulate the RED core of the cable lining SeaTalk to the Converter.
