I just purchased a Maretron WSO100 sensor to be eventually installed on the masthead of my, new to me, Pacific Seacraft
37. On my PS Dana, I have a B&G 508 sensor that had a built in N2K terminal resistor and, as such, was the terminal end of the backbone of the N2K network onboard.
I can't find any reference to a terminal resistor in the Maretron specs. Does anyone know if the WSO100 has a resistor and can be used without adding one at the N2K backbone cable connection to the sensor?
It would make the fabrication of the mount easier as I want to make a mount that is similar in shape to the common forward and angled up type that is common to wind
Having to include a 2+ inch resistor in the connection right at the sensor will necessitate an unnatural vertical element to the mount. And will complicate the installation/connection issue, particularly trying to keep the cable on the inside of the imagined mount.
Any help or leads to a suitable mount appreciated.
