RS130 installation: need to extend the supplied SeaTalkng spur cable

I recently installed the RS130 and the supplied SeaTalkng spur cable is too short. Can the cable be cut and spliced? I need at least 12 more feet. I would rather have an extension cable with one male and one female end but couldn't find one on the Raymarine web site. I am running the spur cable to the E22158 Seatalk1 to SeaTalkng converter.

Cutting / splicing SeaTalkNG cables is discouraged. One possibility is plug the existing RS130 spur in to an in-line terminator (A80001) , then 5 meter backbone cable (A06036) to a blue receptacle on your E22158 SeaTalkNG 1 to SeaTalkNG converter.

The SeaTalkng cable supplied with the RS130 is white and the instructions say to plug into a white receptacle on the converter. Will your suggested solution give me the same results?

Yes. On the " in- line terminator" you will see one white & one blue receptacle. Plug the white spur cable in to the white receptacle. Plug the blue backbone cable in to the blue receptacle. On the SeaTalk 1 to SeaTalkNG converter remove 1 of the blue terminator plugs and install the blue backbone cable in it's place.

Hello Ed,

 Mike is 100% correct. Thank you for your clear and concise explanation.

 You cannot extend the spur cable length (the max length for a spur is 6 meters). So in this case you would extend the backbone to the end of the RS130's spur cable and utilize the in-line terminator.

Please see Page 23 of the attached RS130 GPS Receiver Installation Guide.

3.3 SeaTalkng connection overview —

long cable runs

Use the optional SeaTalkng inline terminator to connect the GPS

receiver’s spur cable directly to the extreme end of the SeaTalkng

backbone using the inline terminator. This removes the need for a

T-piece connector and a separate terminator, making it easier to

achieve a long cable run.

Temperature from Airmar to NMEA2000?

I have the ST30 Bidata with airmar depth in one transducer and speed/temperature in the other. The exact model for speed/temp is ST300-P371 Shorty. ST30 Bidata is only capable of showing depth and speed.My question is: is there any component that I could connect to the two unused temperature leads without loosing the ST30 because that would affect the astethics of the dashboard.I'm thinking: I know I could use the ITC-5 for everything but is it possible to connect only the two temperature…See More

Sport Pilot - EV200 installation help

Im in the process of installing the wheel sport pilot on my boat for the EV200 system.  The direction say to turn to starboard until you cant anymore.  The problem is that you have to line up the key which on my would require almost a 320 degree turn back to port to get it to line up.  Does it even matter about the position of the shaft when you install the unit?See More

Intermittent display of COG and SOG on E80 with RS125

Hi All,First our setup:- Two E80 Classic MFDs wired up together via the Seatalk HS interface.- An RS125 talking to the Master via Seatalk.  - A Raymarine Smart Pilot connected to the slave E80 via NMEA 0183.- A Raymarine Radome connected to the slave.There is also some extra wiring in the boat that I can't identify (due to very difficult cable runs) including a breaker labelled "Seatalk 12V" that has no effect that on that I can identify so far.The problem is that when the Slave unit is turned…See More

c95 networked with e7 won't display NMEA AIS targets when both displays active, and other troubles

Just installed a new c95 belowdecks, along with a new dicitfqrk raymarine radar scanner, and the Rainer network cables between the c95 and the e7. I have a third party (ACR) AIS transponder connected via the NMEA input port 1 on both MFDs. The AIS targets display just fine when either MFD is running by itself, but as sinks as you turn on the second unit (and select the c95 as the master unit) the. AIS targets disappear on both units. What is wrong?Also, the c95 (connected to ther radar via a…See More

Seatalkng i60 does not show wind data

I upgraded from a ST70 with a seatalkng speed/depth transducer and a wind pod to i70 instruments and one i60 instruments. 2 i70 instruments and the i60 instrument are daisy chained with spur cables to the back bone. I also have A65 chart plotter and Evolution autopilot with 2 P70 head instruments.The i60 does not show any wind information in the display (true/apparent, etc). It shows analog wind angle for about 1 minute and then stops on 0.All wind data is available on both i70 instruments on…See More
