Power in seatalk ng

Hi all,

I知 a newbie to seatalkng. I have a Raymarine es-78 that I知 trying to connect to a Raymarine microtalk wireless gateway. I致e connected a seatalk ng cable from the es-78 directly to the micro talk. However, I知 not seeing any wireless connections (wind etc).

Do I need a separate power supply to power this seatalkng backbone? I figure the Es-78 would output power to the microtalk via the cable.

Any help appreciated.

Re: Power in seatalk ng

And now for my follow up question - if it does need power, do I just splice into the seatalkng wire and feed 12v into the power wires?

Seatalk NG usually needs a separate power cable to supply the network ... Typically you plug in one of the red Seatalk NG cables and connect it to your panel.

Re: Power in seatalk ng

You need a seatalk ng starter kit

Not only do you need power you need the terminators as well.

Re: Power in seatalk ng

Thank you smac999. My saga here with this wind indicator has been very frustrating. Too much to type out.

I have successfully spliced 12v into my seatalk cable. I have 12v at the micro talk and 12v at the ES78. Do I really need to purchase this for the terminators? Or is there a way to create my own “terminators”?

Re: Power in seatalk ng

You can稚 connect two white SeaTalkNG cables together and get it to work. You need a blue backbone in there. If in close proximity get a 5-way block, two blue terminators, two white device cables and a red power cable. The terminators go in the outboard two blue slots - the rest go to whiteconnectors. Connect the power via a 3A fuse to power and ground. The only RM device that can power the buss is a ACU200.

Thanks all very much for the help. I ordered the backbone starter kit. Hopefully that solves things.

Assuming you already have one white device cable the kit has all you値l need.
