OpenCPN and 4G Radar, hardware connection before the interface

ciao to everyone,
can someone tell me how many options there are
in the connection from a 4G radar to a pc, interface units and more?
can i split the cable before the interface unit with a passive splitter to save power on a sailboat?
i'd like to have one independant output from the radome to the pc running opencpn, and the other for the interface to a mfd.
i am not sure how to do this.
thanks

Re: OpenCPN and 4G Radar, hardware connection before the interface

got the answer :

Re: Navico radar plugin hardware connection
============================
using a 4G radar with both a mfd (zeus2 7" b&g) and a laptop with opencpn,
can i put a passive splitter before to arrive at the r10 interface and use the second output for the laptop ? have i use the last only as a slave ?
================================================== =========
No, a passive splitter will not work. You need a hub, switch, or router.
The laptop (RADAR plugin) can be a slave or master.
================================================== ==========
