I have purchased an RC435 chart plotter, but the previous owner misplaced the power cable while upgrading his electronics.  Raymarine has no replacement cables to offer (unit less than 10 yrs old).  The RC435 owner's manual has a wire color to function chart (i.e., red=bat. pos.), but without the cable and its colored wires, the chart is not useful.  The 7-pin connector is still available from Gemeco, and they indicated the pins are numbered (as looking at the back of the plotter where the cable plugs in) counterclockwise starting with 1 at the locating notch. I found another RC435 manual online that gave some pin info, but not complete.  The list of wire colors and their functions are given in the manual as follows: Black=bat. neg.; Red=bat. pos.; White=NMEA input (+ve); Green=NMEA input (-ve) common; Gray=not connected; Yellow=NMEA output (+ve); Brown=NMEA output (-ve) common; Screen (bare)=not connected.  Can anyone give me the pin number to match each wire color or each function?  I need all pins identified, since I will be interfacing with the Raymarine st1000+ tiller pilot I recently purchased.  Thanks for the help!

Welcome to the Raymarine Mike,

With the RC435/RC435i Power/NMEA Cable plug's female pins facing toward you and the indexing keyway located at 12 O'Clock, the pins are defined as follows going clockwise from the indexing keyway:

  1. Black = bat. neg.
  2. Red = bat. pos. (10.0VDC to 18.0 VDC)
  3. White = NMEA input (+ve)
  4. Green = NMEA input (-ve) common
  5. Gray = not connected
  6. Yellow = NMEA output (+ve) ... connect to ST1000+ NMEA IN+ port
  7. Brown = NMEA output (-ve) common ... connect to ST1000+ NMEA IN- port

Mike,

See the message sent to you earlier today.

Thanks for all the help!

You're welcome ... Happy Boating!

System Data Alarm?

I have an E125 + CP450cToday  "System Data Alarm" pop up box would appear & then vanish before I could even read it. Then it would stay for a while (5 seconds) and then vanish. Eventually it stayed till I had to push OK to get rid of it. Then the internal GPS data disappeared and after a minute or so when it didn't return, I had to reset the internal GPS.I was traveling at about 24knots so the GPS took about 30 seconds to initialize but it went to a HDOP of 1.2 in another 10 seconds. I…See More

E7

I just recieved a new E 7 MFD.  I noticed in the box it came with a chip that has the new light house version, and it says it needs to be upgraded before the charts can be added.  Since the latest software is not already loaded on this brand new E7, I wonder how do I know if the touch screen needs to be upgraded?  The link on this forum does not give any serial numbers or offer any way to determine if this new  E7 MDF touch screen needs to be upgraded. Also when researching my purchase the…See More
