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!

Wind Instrument Erratic

My I60 Wind Instrument is not working properly.  Sometimes when I turn it on it starts to work, then not. It shows correct wind direction on apparent but shows zeros.  For true it shows the needle straight down with a constant number that is incorrect.I have checked wires and all seems to be fine.  I have a spare transducer and could replace it and see if that works but before I go up the mast was wondering if that might seem like the problem.See More

I'll be upgrading my B&G instruments and including a Zeus2 MFD.I'd like to add a visible light IP camera located above radar (and eventually a thermal one) B&G supports "FLIR IP" cameras including PTZ (http://www.bandg.com/Documents/products/operator-manuals/Zeus2_OM_EN_988-10599-002_w.pdf?epslanguage=en-GB) pp 95-96 Question is whether the CAM 200 and the thermal IP…See More
