information Warning Switch off power supply
Ensure the boats power supply is switched OFF
before starting to install this product Do NOT Installation or disconnect equipment
with the power switched on
unless instructed in this recommends certified installation by a installer A certified installation qualifies for warranty benefits Contact your
Raymarine dealer for Warning Radar scanner details and refer to the separate warranty document packed
with your product Before rotating the radar scanner ensure all personnel
are clear
Warning Product installation and
operation Warning Radio frequency radiation
This product must be installed and operated in hazard
accordance with the Raymarine instructions provided The radar scanner transmits energy
Failure to do so could result in personal injury damage at microwave frequencies which can be harmful
to your boat andor poor product performance particularly to the eyes Do NOT look at the scanner
from close range Ensure personnel are clear of the
scanner when it is powered on
Warning High voltages
For safety reasons the radar must be installed above
This product contains high voltages Do NOT remove head height out of range of personnel
any covers or otherwise attempt to access internal
components unless specifically instructed in this
document
Transmitted power density levels
Warning Product grounding
A power density level of 10 Wm2 is likely at distances of 34 cm
Before applying power to this product ensure it has or less from the radar scanner
been correctly grounded in accordance with the
instructions in this guide A power density level of 100 Wm2 does not occur at any information

Before applying power to this product ensure it has been that the arrow on the power and data cable connector is grounded in accordance with
the instructions in this with the red triangular mark on the radar scanner the cable to the scanners connector and fully NOT use a wrench or any
other tool Grounding requirements
These grounding requirements are applicable for Raymarine
equipment supplied with a separate drain wire or screen
The product power cable drain conductor screen must be
connected to a common ground point
Note If the antenna connector is disconnected after initial
It is recommended that the common ground point is a bonded
installation Raymarine recommends that before ground ie with the ground
point connected to battery negative
you lightly coat the connector thread with Renolit Aqua 2 Calcium
and situated as close as possible to the battery negative terminal

When selecting a location it is important to consider a number of
Mounting surface equipment is adequately supported on a secure surface Horizontal
position
Do not mount units or cut holes in places which may damage the
structure of the vessel The radar scanner should be positioned as near as possible to your
vessels Height
Ensure the unit is mounted in a location which allows proper routing
and connection of cables The radar scanner should normally be mounted as high as practical
above the waterline
Minimum bend radius of 100 mm 394 in unless otherwise stated
Mount the scanner above head height out of range of personnel
Use cable supports to prevent stress on connectors to avoid mechanical danger and minimize exposure to
radiation
The maximum length of cable between the battery and the

hull vessels and some displacement hull vessels adopt a
higher bow angle when the vessel is at cruising speed This may
raise the radars main radiation angle and can cause poor detection
of nearby targets It may be necessary to compensate for the bow
rise to ensure optimum target detection This can be achieved by
fitting a wedge or washers between the mounting platform and the
base of the radar scanner so that the radar beam remains parallel 1

following steps have been Check the selected location for the unit The VCM100 requires a
clear flat area with suitable space for routing the cables below
the unit
2 Hold the VCM100 in place in the required mounting location
3 Using a pencil mark the drilling area inside the mounting lug on
each side of the VCM100 unit
4 Using a 3 mm drill bit drill a hole through the pencil marks
5 Align the VCM100 mounting lugs with the drill holes
6 Hold the VCM100 in place
7 Using a suitable screwdriver screw the selftapping mounting
screws through the mounting lug holes into the drilled holes

For safety reasons it is recommended that the unit is not lifted by
one person The unit is supplied with lifting eyes maximum Safe
Working Load SWL 40 kg to facilitate the use of standard
lifting accessories such as a rope chain or strop The SWL of
the lifting accessories should be a minimum of 150 kg Suitable
lifting equipment could include a crane hoist or an appropriate
rigid overhead structure Do NOT attach the antenna to the
pedestal prior to lifting
Note Do NOT connect any cables until the following steps have
been completed
1 Check the selected location A clear flat platform is required
for mounting the pedestal unit
2 Fix the supplied mounting template to the platform using
masking or selfadhesive tape
the pedestal to the mounting mounting the unit ensure that you have

of the studs into the pedestal
If the supplied studs are not long enough for the mounting
surface thickness use M10 stainless steel grade A470 studding
of a suitable length
10 Using suitable lifting equipment such as a rope or chain
attached to the lifting eyes raise the pedestal over the mounting
surface Carefully lower into position taking care that the studs
pass through the holes without damaging the threads Ensure
that the front of the pedestal is pointing towards the bow of the

6 mm of excess stud below the nut Cutoff any excess stud
Securing the radar antenna to the pedestal
Before attaching the antenna to the pedestal unit ensure that
38 HD and SuperHD Digital Open Array Installation The
pedestal base is securely fixed to the platform
The cable is NOT attached
The pedestal power switch is in the OFF position
The pedestal unit has a cap fitted over the open array mounting
shaft to protect the protruding coaxial pin This cap must remain
in place until youre ready to fit the antenna to the pedestal unit Array
Note You MUST ensure that the antenna does not come into Alignment guide
contact with the delicate protruding coaxial pin This is a critical
component and should be treated with caution Follow all the
instructions provided below and ensure that the alignment guides
are used
1 Fit the 4 threaded alignment guides to the studs on the underside
of the antenna Ensure a close fit The alignment guides are Pedestal
essential to help prevent damage to the coaxial pin
2 Remove the protective cap from the antenna shaft Retain the M8 plain washer
cap for future use M8 spring washer
3 Position the antenna mounting bracket on the Port to Starboard M8 nut
axis of the D104251
4 Lift the antenna into position ensuring it is in the correct
orientation and that the threaded alignment guides are fitted
Carefully align and slowly lower the antenna
5 Once the antenna is in position remove the alignment guides
6 Grease the 4 securing studs with the supplied Denso paste
7 Use the 4 nuts and associated washers to secure the antenna to
the pedestal as shown in the following diagram Tighten each
