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.

 

Thanks

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.

Hi,I have an A70 Chartplotter.Currently it's moving data via NMEA 0183.I'm changing to NMEA 2000.The chart plotter is about a 3.5 hr drive away.I'm wondering is the connector on the back of the unit male or female?Reason for that question is there are two different parts that convert from SeaTalk 2000g to NMEA 2000.  One is male the other is female.Part #'sFemale Cable - A06045Male Cable - A06046Thanks!Sam Moore…See More

"Last question, is this new R28170 an improvement over my old masthead vane and cups? More robust perhaps, or accurate, or better supportive of my all new I70, e7D, Evo pilot etc. that I just added in addition to my existing ST60 legacy displays?"

Raymarine RD424D 24" Radar - What cable?

Does anyone know what cable is needed to connect to this radar?  I've seen vendors state that it comes with a Raynet cable, and I've also seen it listed with a Seatalk HS cable.  I will need to connect this to an E80, which will require the use of a Seatalk HS cable and a crossover coupler.  TY!See More

"I would prefer to use this R28170 so as to not mix old parts with new. Will this plug into my existing E22012 base at the mast head? Put another way, is this apparently new design backward compatible to the E22012 base? "
