any part where it can be used as a hand hold where it might be submergedor where it will interfere with the operation launching or retrieving of the boatThe unit should be mounted so that the operator can easily use the controls and clearly seethe screenThe unit has a highcontrast screen and is viewable in direct sunlight but for best resultsinstall the unit out of direct sunlight The chosen location should have minimal glare fromwindows or bright the optimum viewing angle when determining installation refer to Viewing angle onpage 12The mounting location may affect the internal GPS receiver Test the unit in its to ensure satisfactory reception An external GPS source can be added to overcomepoor reception areasCheck that it is possible to route cables to the intended mounting locationLeave sufficient clearance to connect all relevant cablesBefore cutting a hole in a panel make sure that there are no hidden electrical wires or otherparts behind the panelEnsure that any holes cut are in a safe position and will not weaken the boat200s structure If indoubt consult a qualified boat builder or marine electronics installerNote Where flush mounted the enclosure should be dry and well ventilated In it may be required to fit forced cooling Warning Inadequate ventilation and subsequent overheating of the unitmay cause unreliable operation and reduced service life

useful for identifyingan issue with the networkNote The following information may not always indicate an issue that can be simplyresolved with minor adjustment to network layout or connected devices and theiractivity on the network However Rx and Tx errors are most likely indicating issues withthe physical network which may be resolved by correcting termination or drop lengths or reducing the number of network nodes Setup Zeus3 Installation ManualBus stateSimply indicates whether the bus is powered but not necessarily connected to any datasources However if bus shows as off but power is present along with an increasing errorcount it is possible that termination or cable topology is incorrectRx OverflowsThe unit received too many messages for its buffer before the application could read themRx OverrunsThe unit contained too many messages for its buffer before the driver could read themRxTx ErrorsThese two numbers increase when there are error messages and decrease when messagesare received successfully These unlike the other valuesnormal operation these should be at 0 Values around 96 upwards indicate a heavily errorprone network If these numbers go too high for a

a breakwater or peninsula Adjust thebearing alignment setting so that the heading marker and land mass false target returns can occur adjacent to strong target returns such as largeships or container ports This occurs because not all of the transmitted radar energy can befocused into a single beam by the radar antenna a small amount energy is transmitted inother directions This energy is referred to as sidelobe energy and occurs in all radar systemsThe returns caused by sidelobes tend to appear as arcsNote This control should only be adjusted by experienced radar users Target loss inharbor environments may occur if this control is not adjusted correctlyWhen the radar is mounted where there are metallic objects near the radar sidelobe because the beam focus is degraded The increased sidelobe returns can beeliminated using the Sidelobe Suppression controlBy default this control is set to Auto and normally should not need to be adjusted Howeverif there is significant metallic clutter around the radar sidelobe suppression may need to beincreased The control should be adjusted as follows1Set Radar range to between 12 nm to 1 nm and Sidelobe Suppression to Auto2Take the vessel to a location where sidelobe returns are likely to be seen Typically thiswould be near a large ship container port or metal the area until the strongest sidelobe returns are seen4Change Auto sidelobe suppression to OFF then select and adjust the control until the sidelobe returns are just eliminated You may need tomonitor 510 radar sweeps to be sure they have been the area again and

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.
