Chart card cartography is shared between ESeries Widescreen to the GSeries SeaTalkng bus
displays and GSeries GPM processor units
Embedded cartography can NOT be shared between ESeries
Widescreen displays and GSeries GPM processor units A networked system does NOT support multiple GPS receivers
An ESeries Widescreen display will share its embedded
cartography with another ESeries Widescreen display on the
same network
A GSeries GPM processor unit will share its embedded
cartography with other GSeries GPM processor units on the
same network
The cartography contained on chart cards is always used in
preference to embedded cartography when a chart card is
inserted into a card slot
Radar operation
The GSeries system supports the use of 2 radar scanners at
the same time
An ESeries Widescreen display in a GSeries system can
operate 1 scanner at any one time To use the second scanner
you must select it in the Radar applications Setup Menu This
does not automatically power down the first scanner When 2
scanners are connected you can powerdown the second scanner
at any time using the radar power controls accessible from the
displays power button
The rotating scanner icon in the status bar indicates the status of
all connected scanners not just the currently selected scanner
Similarly if you have a GSeries Compact keyboard connected to
an ESeries Widescreen display the radar status LED located on
the keyboard reflects the status of ALL scanners
38 GSeries installation GSeries network
217 System protocols
The GSeries system consists of a number of devices that Your Multifunction Display can connect to various instruments using various network
protocols displays to share information and so improve the functionality of
The network protocol that your equipment uses depends on a the system These connections may be made using a number of
number of factors including the manufacturer the age of the different protocols Fast and accurate data collection and transfer is
equipment and the data bandwidth and compatibility requirements achieved by using a combination of the following data protocols
of the equipment SeaTalkhs
The GSeries GPM processor unit acts as a bridge for these receiving data in various protocols and processing or
passing the data on to other devices as appropriate NMEA 2000
SeaTalk
NMEA 0183
Note You may find that your system does not use all of the
connection types or described in this section
SeaTalkhs
SeaTalkhs is an ethernet based marine network This high speed
protocol allows compatible equipment to communicate rapidly and
share large amounts of data
Information shared using the SeaTalkhs network includes
Shared cartography between compatible displays
Digital radar data
Sonar the installation 39
Seatalkng NMEA Next Generation is an enhanced protocol for connection The NMEA 0183
Data Interface Standard was developed by
of compatible marine instruments and equipment It replaces the the National Marine Electronics Association of America It is an
older SeaTalk and SeaTalk2 protocols international standard to enable equipment from many different
manufacturers to be connected together and share utilizes a single backbone to which connect using a spur Data and power are carried within The
NMEA 0183 standard carries similar information to SeaTalk
the backbone Devices that have a low draw can be powered from However it has the important difference that one cable will only
the network although high current equipment will need to have a carry information in one direction For this reason NMEA 0183 is
separate power connection generally used to connect a data receiver and a transmitter together
eg a compass sensor transmitting heading to a radar display is a proprietary extension to NMEA 2000 and the proven information is passed in
sentences each of which has a three
CAN bus technology Compatible NMEA 2000 and SeaTalk letter sentence identifier It is therefore important when devices can also be
connected using the appropriate compatibility between items that the same sentence identifiers or adaptor cables as required
used some examples of which are
NMEA 2000 VTG carries Course and Speed Over Ground data
NMEA 2000 offers significant improvements over NMEA 0183 most GLL carries latitude and in speed and connectivity Up to 50 units can and
receive on a single physical bus at any one time DBT carries water depth
with each node being physically addressable The standard MWV carries relative wind angle and wind speed data
was specifically intended to allow for a whole network of from any manufacturer to communicate on a common NMEA baud rates
bus via standardized message types and formats
The NMEA 0183 standard operates at a number of different
speeds depending upon the particular requirement or capabilities Typical examples are
SeaTalk is a protocol which enables compatible instruments to 4800 baud rate Used for general purpose to each other and share data
including FastHeading data
The SeaTalk cable system is used to connect compatible 9600 baud rate Used for and equipment The cable carries power and data and
enables connection without the need for a central processor 38400 baud rate Used for AIS and other high speed instruments and functions
can be added to a simply by plugging them into the network can also communicate with other nonSeaTalk equipment
via the NMEA 0183 standard provided a suitable interface is used

Unless otherwise stated use only standard cables of the correct
type supplied by Raymarine
Strain relief
Ensure that any nonRaymarine cables are of the correct quality
and gauge For example longer power cable runs may require Ensure adequate strain relief is provided Protect connectors from
larger wire gauges to minimize voltage drop along the run strain and ensure they will not pull out under extreme sea cables
Circuit must be routed correctly to maximize performance and Appropriate circuit isolation is required
for installations using both
prolong cable life AC and DC current
Do NOT bend cables excessively Wherever possible ensure a Always use isolating transformers or a separate minimum bend radius of 100 mm
to run PCs processors displays and other sensitive electronic
instruments or devices
Always use an isolating transformer with Weather FAX audio
Minimum bend

Always use an RS232NMEA converter with optical isolation on
the signal lines
Protect all cables from physical damage and exposure to heat Always make sure that PCs or other sensitive electronic devices
Use trunking or conduit where possible Do NOT run cables have a dedicated power circuit
through bilges or doorways or close to moving or hot objects
Secure cables in place using tiewraps or lacing twine Coil any Cable shielding
extra cable and tie it out of the way
Ensure that all data cables are properly shielded that the cable
Where a cable passes through an exposed bulkhead or deckhead shielding is intact eg hasnt been scraped off by being squeezed
use a suitable watertight feedthrough through a tight area
Do NOT run cables near to engines or fluorescent lights

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
