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.

How do I insert my chart card into my new a-Series Multifunction Display?

Since April 2010, Navionics microSD based cartography has been packaged within a SD to microSD memory card adapter sleeve. The microSD memory card must be withdrawn from this adapter for use with your new a-Series Multifunction Display. To do so, orient the SD memory card adapter sleeve such that the label is facing you and the contacts are facing downward and away from you. Insert your finger nail into the recess in the sleeve below the chart card's label and slide your finger away from the…See More

Dragonfly cuts out

All connections and fuses are good, batterie is new. It seems to cut out while hooked up to the same battery as the main outboard. When hooked up to a battery not getting a charge it runs flawlessly. I would like to not have to use two batteries in this boat. Any suggestions?

EV-100 / ACU-100 grounding

The autopilot unit ACU-100 has three power connectors (positive, negative, ground). I am not sure what the ground terminal should be connected to. The manual says that if there is not a specific boat ground system, then this should be grounded to the negative battery terminal. But then we would have two wires connected to the battery negative terminal ? Also : is the boat lightning ground system (a cable connected to a keelbolt) effective as grounding system for the ACU-100, in alternative to…See More
