This is a new page for displaying documents. The first time a document is loaded will take a little longer than it will for the next person so please be patient if it takes time. It will be much faster once all the documents have been converted. This will also allow these documents to display on devices without pdf viewers specifically mobile devices. Please email me at "L-36" dot COM if you notice any strange behavior. This is part of the Google requirement that all web pages be "mobile friendly". This is an effort that takes quite a bit of time and as it is just me and I would rather be sailing...

 Note: Each GVM400 video module supports 1 S-Video input, or
 4 composite video inputs (reduced to 3 composite video inputs
 if using S-Video input). If a thermal camera is connected to a
 GVM video module no further video devices may be connected to
 that GVM unit. The G-Series system supports a maximum of 3
 GVM video modules, providing a total of 12 video inputs (less if
 connecting S-Video or thermal camera devices).

You can connect a thermal camera to your system.
The camera is connected via a SeaTalkhs switch. If you want to
use the optional Joystick Control Unit (JCU) with the camera this
must also be connected to the SeaTalkhs switch. A composite video
connection is also required between the camera and a GVM video
module.

4. Select the GVM video module that the thermal camera is
   connected to.
5. Repeat Steps 1 to 4 for each GVM video module in your system
   that has a thermal camera connected to it.

 Note: You can only connect 1 thermal camera to each GVM
 video module in your G-Series system. When a thermal camera
 is connected, each GVM video module is limited to that input
 only and does NOT support the connection of any further video
 devices.

When selecting a location for the unit it is important to consider a
number of factors.
 Do NOT install near sources of heat or vibration (for example,
  an engine).
 Install below decks in a dry area.
 Must be mounted on a vertical surface. Sides and top must be
  level.
