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


See the message sent to you earlier today.

Thanks for all the help!

You're welcome ... Happy Boating!

St4000 plus acting up

After many years of holding courses spot on my st4000 plus is beginning to wander. When you point it at the desired course (say 90 degrees) and press the auto button, it holds this course for a few second then begins to oscillate between 90 and 100 degrees. I have tried all combinations of gain, response and autotrim with no change in behavior. What's odd is that it wanders not about the set point (90) but from the set point and 10 degrees to the right off the set point. Also it is not going…See More

C70 Classic MFD with RayStar 120 Seatalk

Hello Moderator,I created a new post to clarify from the last post as the 112lp is no longer being used.Well my woes continue with the C70 and Raystar 120. Prior to full installation I tested the system using a SeaTalk cable and I was getting a satellite lock. The 120 antenna was working fine according to the C70 and all was well in the world. On the vessel however, the C70 and Raystar 120 are connected exactly as they were in the test prior, but now I do not get any signal from the 120. Wires…See More

ST40 connect to T101

I've just bought a T101 Wind system, and I have a previously installed ST40 speed/depth system.  The documentation with the T101 isn't clear, so I have two questions: 1) do I need a boat speed input for true wind speed display, and, if so, 2) can I use the ST40 for that input?See More
