I am sure this is probably a numpty question ... but I can't seem to figure this out. I am hoping someone has done this already and its a one sentence answer.
I know its a tad retro ... but i have a costly investment ...
BTW - don't send me to the Raymarine
Support Forum - as i have been shunned for not being a US citizen. Apparently its now only for you US folks ... go figure !
Anyway .. for the Ray'mariners amongst you ...
I have 2 MFD's (E120, E80 Classics) networked with ST1 and STHS (ethernet). A ST60+ Depth
is direct connected to an Airmar 319 transducer. So of course, Depth
is displayed whether the MFD's are on or off and depth data shared on the ST1 bus. Great for being at anchor
and setting a depth alarm
I am going to drop in a Digital Sounder DSM300. This will require the transducer to be connected to it and will plug
into the STHS network to feed info to the MFD's, and, i assume, the MFD's will share depth data onto the ST1 bus for other instruments.
So to the problem : How can you get depth info on the ST60 with the MFD(s) powered off ? (when at anchor
, i still want a depth alarm
but not my MFD's consuming amps).
The ST60+ manual has the following text - but no further explanation ...
'The ST60+ Depth instrument, can be connected:
As a stand-alone, master instrument connected directly to the Depth trans-
As a SeaTalk repeater.
To fulfil both repeater and master roles by being connected both to the trans-
ducer and to SeaTalk.
Does this mean (underlined above) that the transducer can be connected to both the DSM300 and the ST60 at the same time and the ST60 will figure it out ??
Thanks in advance ...
