I think I've got this right but would like to confirm before I start putting the cabling in place:
I am installing B&G broadband
. The best place for the RI10 interface box is right under the existing Simrad
computer (which is next to the NEP-2 ethernet box). The radar
cable run from the mast
through the bilge
has good separation from any potential sources of interference
, but the last 2 feet will run along the source and drive power
wires to the AC42. Ethernet cables
to two Zeus Touch 8 displays will also run through this 2-foot-long conduit.
uses a higher-power T2 ram, not the lower power
drive that usually goes with the AC42.
I understand that one beauty of broadband
radar is that it shouldn't mess up the other components here as pulse radar would. But is there a risk that the autopilot power wires will mess up the radar and/or ethernet? The various installation manuals
don't say anything about this. The RI10 mounting instructions say it "must be located where it can be easily connected" to power/network/ethernet and that's exactly what I'm doing.
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful feedback.
