Thankyou Northwest Sailor. That is helpful.
Now comes the nitty gritty questions.
- B&G Zeus Touch 12 - Separate power cable
- RI10 Radar - Integral cable
- Nmea2000 bus - How do I power this? Is it a special cable?
- Future AIS/Wifi Power - Vesper XB-8000
I was thinking of wiring
the ZeusT12 and RI10 off the same breaker and the Nmea2000 bus and Vesper off of another breaker. (will fuses
With the Chartplotter
running, will I be able to set radar to standby and turn it off?
Then if I power off the Chartplotter
& Radar at the breaker leaving the Nmea2000 & Vesper XB-8000 on I will be able to broadcast wifi to tablets with the Nmea0183 data from my instruments and any heading data that is on the bus (If I eventually get a 10hz Compass).
Perhaps it is advisable to have separate breakers for the ZeusT12 and RI10? or maybe I just power all of it off the same breaker and provide separate fuses
? - Looking for Pros and Cons here.
In looking at the RI10 unit there is a connector that appears to be 5 pin, and it looks like the Nmea2000 connectors should fit, but it does not. I assume this is for connecting the Nmea2000 bus to the RI10 so that heading data can get to the radar.
What connector is supposed to be used on the RI10 for the Nmea2000?
Also what cable is used to power the Nmea2000 bus? Have not seen details about that.
The other question inherent in this the Pros and Cons of using Vesper XB-8000
vs GoFree wifi
What would I loose by going with Vesper XB-8000? It looks like it is an improvement to me, but perhaps there is some integrate aspect that I do not know about.
