im looking to connect a gps antenna to my raymarine Raychart BC420.

My raymarine  has two cable. The big black one, that end with seven coloured wires 

Brown,white,yellow, green, gray,red and black 

and the small white one for the gps antenna whit 4 coloured wires, red,green,yellow and 

brown other then the...metal coating, I do not know the english word, we in Italy we call it Calza.

The Evermore Sa-320,  contrary to what reported in the online manuals, has five coloured wires ( and not 6 or 7 wires as the manual!) that are red,black, blue and green and the metal coating 

And after two days of work I have absolutely no idea how to connect them..

I need help .. :-)

Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Forum Lorenzo,

Please see the following snapshot taken from the Evermore SA-320's Installation Guide describing the GPS sensor's wires:

Please see the screen snapshot of the Raystar 112LP/120LP NMEA 0183 GPS Sensor's Cable

As these sensors support both 4800 and 9600 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications, you will need to follow the manufacturer's instructions for configuring the GPS sensor for 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications before interfacing the GPS sensor to the Raymarine equipment.

The Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable with plug will need to be retained and spliced to the new GPS Sensor's cable.  After configuring the GPS sensor for 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications, then the GPS sensor will be interfaced to the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable as follows:

  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's +12V (red) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (blue) lead
  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's ground (screen) lead to the Evermore SA-320's ground (green) and signal ground (black) leads
    Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA IN+ (green) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (violet) lead
  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA OUT+ (yellow) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (brown) lead
Thaks for the aswer. But if you see my first post, the cable of my used evermore sa320 has not a violet vire and has not the wires described in the on line manual ma only red,blue,black ,white and green wires. This is for me the mani problem..

Lorenzo,

As the GPS sensor's NMEA 0183 IN+ lead would only be required to support commanding the GPS sensor to restart, you could probably skip connecting the Raystar 112LP/120LP to anything.  However, should you desire to command the GPS to restart, then I would recommend that you contact the manufacturers of the Evermore GPS sensor to obtain an updated definition for the GPS sensor cable's leads.  Without this information, it would not be possible to further recommendations.

Thanks, you are right. I will try to contact the Evenmore manifacturers and let you known.
Have a good year!

Lorenzo

You're welcome.

Evermore ( Mrs Ariel Cheng ) answered me Today:

Hello Lorenzo,

Red wire: VCC power (+12V)

Green wire: Tx, Output signal

White wire: Rx, imput signal

Black wire: Ground

Gray wire: Shield wire, signal ground

Blue wire: Not used

 

Lorenzo,

The following installation instructions reflect the updated information provided by Evermore:

The Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable with plug will need to be retained and spliced to the new GPS Sensor's cable.  After configuring the GPS sensor for 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications, then the GPS sensor will be interfaced to the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable as follows:

  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's ground (screen) lead to the Evermore SA-320's ground (black) and signal ground (gray) leads
    Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA IN+ (green) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (white) lead
  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA OUT+ (yellow) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (green) lead
thank you very much for the time that you lost to reply. No one is so kind here in Italy..
Tomorrow i'll try

Lorenzo

You're welcome.

Macboatmaster,

The following installation instructions reflect the last information provided by Evermore ... this was correct as of the date it it was written:

The Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable with plug will need to be retained and spliced to the new GPS Sensor's cable.  After configuring the GPS sensor for 4800 BAUD NMEA 0183 communications, then the GPS sensor will be interfaced to the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable as follows:

  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA IN+ (green) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (white) lead
  • Connect the Raystar 112LP GPS Sensor's Cable's NMEA OUT+ (yellow) lead to the Evermore SA-320's power supply (green) lead

Hahahahaha, you're all totally wrong. Should have bought it from www.gps-galore.co.uk

The guy's an expert on these.

The information was not wrong when posted. I suggest you look at the date of the post before adding stupid comments
