Seatalk NG 5 way

I have a question about this 5 way
It has 2 blue and 3 white plugs

My configuration is as follows

one blue is going to the ACU-100 autopilot controller
one white is going to the p70S, wind, depth, and speed instruments
one white is going to the EV-1 sensor core
one white is going to 12V power source
one blue is terminated

I want to tie my Chartplotter into the network and was wondering if I can use the blue plug for 12V power source so I can plug the Chartplotter into the white plug

Re: Seatalk NG 5 way

The blue is backbone, the white are drop leads. remember you need a terminator at each end of the bus, but there is no reason the bus cannot be extended. Devices connect via the white plugs, or T's from the blue....

How is the blue going to the pilot? There must be a tee and terminator at the pilot. (And white cable feeding pilot from tee).

You need to add another tee and blue cable to add on the plotter.

Re: Seatalk NG 5 way

The power cable Ray supplies will plug into the white (spur) sockets only. Its possible someone cut off a backbone cable and wired it into your ACU-100 (it uses individual wires and screw connections for the SeaTalkNG connection) but this means your system is missing a terminator.

Like others have said, you'll want to add either another 5-way or at least a tee to get another spur for your chartplotter.

Re: Seatalk NG 5 way

I bought an extra 5 way in case I add more devices and terminated the blue outlets.
All good now
