If you run the cable up a mast take the appropriate measures
Prevent the cable chafing where it enters and exits the mast In a 24 V system protect the power supply with either a 5 A

If you are replacing an existing Radome scanner with an HD Digital voltage converter is recommended to convert the 12 V supply
Radome Antenna you must also replace any existing cable with the voltage to 24 V and thus enable you to extend the run up to 35 digital cable as
described in section 27 Cables We recommend using a converter with a minimum 200 W output
If you connect to the power supply via an isolator switch the
minimum switch rating is
For a 12 V system 20 A
These grounding requirements are applicable for Raymarine
For a 24 V system 15 A equipment supplied with a separate drain wire or screen

system ground ie with the ground point connected to battery negative
and situated as close as possible to the battery negative terminal
If a bonded ground system is not possible a nonbonded RF
Power Supply Protection ground may be used
The power supply must be protected by a suitable thermal or fuse fitted close to the power source The are the same for both 18 and 24 HD Digital
and are as follows
In a 12 V system protect the power supply with either a 10 A
thermal breaker or a 15 A fuse
16 HD Digital Radome Users Guide
Bonded ground system preferred If several items require
grounding they may first be connected
to a single local point eg within a switch panel with this point
connected via a single conductor to the boats
common ground The preferred minimum requirement for the path
to ground bonded or nonbonded is via a flat tinned copper braid
with a 30 A rating 14 inch or greater If this is not possible an
equivalent stranded wire conductor maybe used rated as follows
for runs of 1 m 3 ft use 6 mm2 10 AWG or greater
for runs of 1 m 3 ft use 8 mm2 8 AWG or greater

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.
