EMC Installation Guidelines
All Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry standards for use in
the recreational marine environment.
Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC) standards, but correct installation is required to ensure that performance is not
compromised. Although every effort has been taken to ensure that they will perform under all
conditions, it is important to understand what factors could affect the operation of the product.
The guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance, but it is
recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all situations. To ensure
the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the constraints imposed by any
location, always ensure the maximum separation possible between different items of electrical
equipment.
For optimum EMC performance, it is recommended that wherever possible:
Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are:
At least 3 ft. (1 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals e.g. VHF
radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft.
(2 m).
More than 7 ft. (2 m) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed to
spread 20 degrees above and below the radiating element.
The equipment is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine start. Voltage
drops below 10 V, and starter motor transients, can cause the equipment to reset. This will not
damage the equipment, but may cause the loss of some information and may change the
operating mode.
Raymarine specified cables are used. Cutting and rejoining these cables can compromise EMC
performance and must be avoided unless doing so is detailed in the installation manual.
If a suppression ferrite is attached to a cable, this ferrite should not be removed. If the ferrite
needs to be removed during installation it must be reassembled in the same position.
Suppression Ferrites
The illustration shows typical cable suppression
ferrites used with Raymarine equipment. Always
use the ferrites supplied by Raymarine.
D6626-1
Connections to Other Equipment
If your Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable not supplied
by Raymarine, a suppression ferrite MUST always be attached to the cable near to the
Raymarine unit.

Chapter 1: System Integration
1.1 Introduction
This chapter provides an overview of system integration, you may find that your
system does not use all the protocols or contain all the instrumentation that is
described in it. However it is hoped that the information supplied will help in your
understanding of how systems can be integrated and used successfully.
1.2 What is System Integration?
System integration enables various instruments and displays to communicate with
each other and use the collected data to increase the functionality of the system.
This data exchange is only possible if the data gathering is accurate, and transfer
between instruments is fast and accurate.
Fast and accurate data transfer is achieved by using a combination of the following
data protocols:
• SeaTalk
• SeaTalk2.
• National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA)0183.
• NMEA 2000.
What is SeaTalk?
SeaTalk
The SeaTalk protocol was originally developed by Autohelm (part of Raymarine) and
enables compatible instruments to be connected by a single cable carrying power and
data in/out, without a central processor, creating a simple network.
Additional instruments and functions can be added to a SeaTalk system, simply by
plugging them into the network. SeaTalk equipment can also communicate with other
non-SeaTalk equipment via the NMEA 0183 standard.
SeaTalk2
SeaTalk2 protocol was developed as the Controller Area Network (CAN) based version
of SeaTalk.

C-Series Displays Installation Manual
What is NMEA?
NMEA 0183
The NMEA 0183 Data Interface Standard was developed by the National Marine
Electronics Association of America. It is an international standard to enable equipment
from many different manufacturers to be connected together and share information.
The NMEA 0183 standard carries similar information to SeaTalk. However it has the
important difference in that one cable will only carry information in one direction. For
this reason NMEA 0183 is generally used to connect a data receiver and a transmitter
together, e.g. a compass sensor transmitting heading to a radar display.
This information is passed in ‘sentences’, each of which has a three-letter sentence
identifier. It is therefore important when checking compatibility between items that
the same sentence identifiers are used, e.g. VTG carries Course and Speed Over
Ground data, GLL carries latitude and longitude, DBT carries water depth and MWV
carries relative wind angle and wind speed data.
NMEA 2000
The NMEA 2000 Data Interface Standard is the CAN based version of NMEA 0183.

CAUTION: Radar Scanners, Cables & Installation
Information on radar scanners, cables and their installation contained in this
handbook supersedes that contained in the Pathfinder Radar Scanner
Handbook, Document No. 81154_6, dated 11th March 2002.
2.1 Introduction
This chapter provides information and instructions for installing your C-Series
Display
You may find that your system does not use all the protocols or contain all of the
instrumentation that is described.
For full functionality of the displays the following position and heading data is
required:
• Orientation - heading data is required for the radar to operate in North Up or Head
Up mode and the chart to operate in Course Up and head Up modes.
• Man Overboard (MOB) - requires heading and speed data,. Alternatively, Speed
over ground (SOG) and Course over Ground (COG) derived from the same source as
position data will enable this function.
• Mini Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (MARPA) and radar/chart overlay functions
require accurate heading data. MARPA functionality is provided if SOG and COG
are also available.
• Position data is required for full functionality of the chart display.
Selecting the display unit location
Your C-Series display can be mounted using the mounting bracket supplied, or
console mounted using the optional flush-mounting kit.
Before you install the display, plan its installation, considering:
• Convenience: The contrast and colors seen on all Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD)
vary slightly with viewing angle and are best viewed perpendicular to the display.
The mounting location should be easily accessible to allow operation of the front
panel controls.
• Access: There must be sufficient space behind the display to allow cable connections to the rear panel connectors, avoiding tight bends in the cable.
• Interference: The selected location should be far enough away from devices that
may cause interference, such as motors, generators and radio transmitters/receivers (see EMC Guidelines).

C-Series Displays Installation Manual
• Magnetic compass: Mount the display at least 3ft (1m) away from a magnetic
compass.
• Cable runs: The display should be mounted as near as possible to a Direct Current
(DC) power source.
• Environmental: The display should be protected from physical damage and
excessive vibration. Although the display unit is waterproof, it is good practice to
mount it in a protected area away from prolonged and direct exposure to rain and
salt spray.
Selecting the scanner unit location
This section provides information that affects the possible locations of the scanner, and its
position relative to the display unit and to the power supply.
The dimensions of the each scanner unit are shown in the following diagrams.
Selecting the best location for the scanner unit requires careful consideration of the
following points, to ensure reliable and trouble free operation:
Note: In order to minimize potential interference to other systems on board ship
(EMC), it is advisable to mount the scanner on a part of the boat that is insulated from
the ship’s battery negative. If you cannot do this, and encounter problems, you can fit
insulating bushes between the scanner and its mounting bracket.
• Height: The scanner unit should normally be mounted as high as practical above
the waterline, for three reasons:
• For safety reasons the scanner should be out of range of personnel, preferably
above head height. This avoids mechanical danger and electromagnetic
contact, particularly with the eyes.
• Radar operates at the line-of-sight, so a high mounting position gives better
long range performance.
• Surrounding large objects, in the same horizontal plane, can interfere with the
radar signal and cause blind areas or shadow sectors and false targets on the
radar screen (see below).
However, do not mount the scanner so high that it is affected by the pitching and
rolling of the vessel. In addition, you may need to lower the scanner to avoid
creating a shadow sector underneath the scanner’s beam.

• Access: The scanner unit site should be easily accessible to allow maintenance to
be carried out safely.
• Magnetic compass: Mount the scanner unit at least 1 m away from a magnetic
compass.
• Cable run: The maximum length of cable between the display unit and the
scanner unit should not normally exceed 20 m (60 ft) for radome scanners, or 15 m
offered by Busse-Yachtshop.com
Chapter 2: Installation
-21
(45 ft) for open array scanners. If you need to use a longer cable power cable
lengths must be considered.
• Shadow sectors and false echoes: Mount the scanner away from large
structures or equipment, such as the fly bridge, large engine stacks, searchlights,
horns, or masts. It is particularly important to avoid shadow sectors near the bow.
Raising or even lowering the scanner may help to reduce these effects.
In shadow areas beyond the obstruction there will be a reduction of the beam
intensity, although not necessarily a complete cut-off; there will be a blind sector if
the subtended angle is more than a few degrees.
In some shadow sectors the beam intensity may not be sufficient to obtain an
echo from a very small object, even at close range, despite the fact that a large
vessel can be detected at a much greater range. For this reason the angular width
and relative bearing of any shadow sector must be determined at installation.
Sometimes shadowing can be seen by increasing the radar gain until noise is
present. Dark sectors indicate possible shadowed areas. This information should
be posted near the display unit and operators must be alert for targets in these
blind sectors.
It should also be noted that wet sails create shadow areas and thus sail boat
operators should be aware that radar performance may reduce in rain.
If you mount the scanner on a mast, echoes from the mast may appear on the
radar display. These can be minimized by placing absorbing material, such as a
block of wood, between the scanner and mast.
• Platform rigidity/stability: The scanner platform should not twist (causing
bearing errors) or be subject to excessive vibration.
• Heat/fumes: Mount the scanner away from the top of exhaust stacks, since the
scanner and cables can be damaged by excessive heat and the corrosive effects of
exhaust gases.
• For open array scanners you should also consider the following points:
• Mounting Platform: The platform must be mechanically secure and capable of
supporting the mass and inertia of the open array scanner. The complete unit
weighs: 48" scanner - 30 kg (66.2 lb); 72" scanner - 33.4 kg (73.7 lb).
• The site must be clear of ropes and moving rigging.
• Sufficient clearance must be allowed to fully open the open array pedestal for
maintenance.
Mounting surface: sailboats
The scanner unit can be installed on a mast platform, an arch, or a bridge structure.
Make sure that the platform surface is flat and the scanner unit drain hole (radome
scanners) is not obstructed. Raymarine recommends that radome scanner units are

C-Series Displays Installation Manual
best suited for sailboat operation as open array systems are more difficult to
protect from ropes and sails.
For sailboat installations, Raymarine offers a universal mast mount kit for each
radome scanner type. This optional mount is used to fit a radome scanner to a flat
surface on a mast with a minimum diameter of 60 mm (2½ in). When using the
mast mount kit, appropriate hardware should be used for the style and structure of
the mast aboard the vessel. Typically, the scanner will be mounted near the first set
of mast spreaders. If there is any doubt concerning the appropriate type of
hardware, consult your boat dealer or representative for their recommendations.
Depending on the type of sailboat, a radar scanner guard should be installed if the
sails could touch the scanner or platform. Without a proper radar guard the
mounting platform and the radar scanner could be severely damaged.
Mounting surface: power boats
On many small vessels the scanner unit can be installed on a mast platform, an
arch, or a bridge structure, but take care to follow the scanner site guidelines,
particularly regarding height. If necessary, construct a radar mounting platform to
obtain a sufficiently high mounting position. Make sure that the platform surface is
flat and the scanner unit drain hole (radome scanners) is not obstructed. Ensure the
platform is strong enough to support the maximum shock loads likely to occur.
Setting the radiation plane
The scanner unit should be mounted so that the array rotates parallel to the
waterline. The radar beam is approximately 25° wide in the vertical direction,
providing good target detection during the vessel’s pitching and rolling.

Planing hull vessels, and some displacement hull vessels, adopt a higher bow angle

raises the radar’s main radiation plane, and can cause poor detection of nearby
targets. It may be helpful to lower the radar beam back towards the parallel, by
shimming the rear of the radar, so that the beam points slightly downwards with
respect to the waterline when the vessel is at rest

2.4 What about the cables?
When installing system cables consider the following:
• All cables should be adequately secured, protected from physical damage and
exposure to heat. Avoid running cables through bilges or doorways, or close to
moving or hot objects.
• Acute bends must be avoided.
• Where a cable passes through an exposed bulkhead or deckhead, a watertight
feed-through should be used.
• Secure cables in place using tie-wraps or lacing twine. Coil any extra cable and tie
it out of the way.
• Do not pull cables through a bulkhead or deckhead using a cord
attached to the connector. This could damage the connections.

used with your C-Series Display, and covers the following:
• Radar tests and alignment.
• Chartplotter checks.
• Fishfinder checks.
If your C-Series Display is part of an integrated system, it is strongly advised that the
radar checks are carried out before connecting the other systems.
The Screen
The display screen uses a combination of ‘pages’ and ‘windows’ to show you the
applications. It is recommended that the system tests and alignment are carried out
with each application shown in a full page for clarity.
For full details of setting up pages refer to - Chapter 1 - System Overview, C-Series
Reference Manual.
3.2 How do I test the radar and align it?
For the radar application of your C-Series Display to function correctly, it must be
connected to a compatible radar scanner. For full details of scanner compatibility- See
“Important Information” on page 5. in this handbook. If you are still unsure as to your
whether your scanner is suitable refer to an authorized Raymarine dealer.
Pre-start checks
Before you perform any functional tests with the radar, check:
• That the scanner has been installed in accordance with the instructions contained in the relevant handbook.
• All securing bolts are fully tightened and any mechanical locking arrangements, as specified, are in place.
• Scanner and power connections have been made.
• If an open array is fitted ensure that power is connected through a split cable to
a suitable circuit breaker.
• If an open array is fitted, set the power switch located on the pedestal to ON.
• All connecting wires are secured and protected as necessary.
Note: If you are the boat’s owner and have installed the radar system, ask an
authorized Raymarine dealer to check the installation before going to sea.

Alignment checks
With the radar transmitting correctly, the system should now be aligned as follows:
Bearing alignment
To adjust the bearing alignment, you need to select a visible target of known bearing
that is displayed on the radar, and then adjust the radar set up as necessary until the
correct bearing reading is obtained.
You can carry out a bearing alignment with your boat moored, or under way in
reasonably calm conditions.
Bearing alignment with your boat moored
You will need a hand bearing compass to carry out this method.
1. Visually identify a suitable target, such as a buoy that can be seen towards the edge
of the radar screen. Typically, this will be on the 1.5nm range.
2. Determine the accurate bearing of the target relative to your boat’s bow using the
hand bearing compass. To do this subtract your boat head bearing from the target
visual bearing, these examples may help:
Example 1
Example 2
Visual bearing (a) = 065° M
Visual bearing (a) = 030° M
Ships head bearing (b) = 021° M
Ships head bearing (b) = 042° M
Relative bearing
= (a) - (b) 065 - 021 = 044° R
Relative bearing
= (a) - (b) -12° (+360) = 348° R
3. From the primary radar softkeys, press VRM/EBL.
4. Toggle the VRM/EBL softkey to ON. Adjust the EBL to your chosen target.If there is
a difference between your calculated bearing and that shown on screen there is an
alignment error.
5. Carry out bearing alignment adjustment, See “Adjusting the bearing alignment”
on page 42.
Bearing alignment with your boat under way
To check bearing alignment with your boat under way:
1. Align your boat’s bow with the selected target.
2. Note the position of the target relative to the Ships Heading Marker (SHM) on the
radar picture. If the target is not under the SHM, there is an alignment error.
3. Carry out bearing alignment adjustment,See “Adjusting the bearing alignment” on
page 42.

Display timing
If you extended the radar cable during installation, you should have set the display
timing when you first set up the system - See “How do I test the radar and align it?” on
page 39.
Under certain circumstances, it may be easier to adjust the display timing with Main
Bang Suppression (MBS) OFF: pressing the MBS soft key to toggle the setting OFF. MBS
is reset to ON automatically when you finish adjusting the display timing.
STC Preset
The Sensitivity Time Control (STC) can be adjusted to equalize target levels across the
display. The factory setting should provide an even display, but if you find that targets
are brighter or dimmer nearer the center than at the edge of the display, you can adjust
this parameter until the required display is achieved.
Note: Caution should be observed when adjusting this parameter as poor adjustment
can adversely affect auto gain and sea controls.
Tune Preset
The radar tuning is controlled either automatically or manually using the TUNE control.
However, this only controls a restricted range of tuning values. If actual tuning peak
falls outside this range, you will need to adjust the tune preset level to move the
controlled range over the tuning peak. It should be adjusted for maximum image
intensity.
With all of the above parameters, if required, the preset factory values can be restored
by carrying out a factory reset. See “How do I test the radar and align it?” on page 39.

follows:
1. Open a page on the display that has two windows in it. See Chapter 1 - Using the
Display in the C-Series Reference Manual.
2. Open the Fishfinder application in both windows. See Chapter 1 - Using the Display
in the C-Series Reference Manual.
3. Set the DSM to Dual Frequency.
4. Press Active to select one window.
5. Set all soft key functions for 50 kHz frequency to AUTO.
6. Press Active to select the next window.
7. Set all soft key functions for 200 kHz frequency to AUTO. You now have one
window displaying 50 kHz frequency and one window displaying 20 kHz
frequency.
8. Set the AUTO GAIN for both frequencies to HI.
9. Set the FREQUENCY TUNING soft keys for both frequencies to MANUAL.
10. Use the corresponding soft keys to adjust the values for each frequency until the
picture is as sharp as possible with minimum ‘noise’.
11. Allow the fishfinder to run for at least one minute for the DSM to accept these
adjustments.
12. Press OK to accept these settings.
The transducer is now calibrated. The next time you use the fishfinder it will operate
using these settings.

Chapter 4: Maintenance & Troubleshooting
4.1 Introduction
This chapter provides information on maintaining and troubleshooting your
Raymarine C-Series Display, and also information on how to get assistance from
Raymarine.
4.2 What maintenance can I do?
At regular intervals, carry out the following servicing procedures:
• Routine checks.
• Cleaning the Display.
Do not attempt any other servicing procedures.
Servicing and Safety
• Raymarine equipment should be serviced only by authorized Raymarine service
technicians. They will ensure that service procedures and any replacement parts
used will not affect performance. There are no user serviceable parts in any Raymarine product.
• Some products generate high voltages, so never handle the cables or connectors
when power is being supplied to the equipment.
• When powered up, all electrical equipment produces electromagnetic fields. These
can cause adjacent pieces of electrical equipment to interact with one another,
with a consequent adverse effect on operation. In order to minimize these effects
and enable you to get the best possible performance from your Raymarine equipment, guidelines are given in the installations manual, to enable you to ensure minimum interaction between different items of equipment, i.e. ensure optimum
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
• Always report any EMC-related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer. We use
such information to improve our quality standards.
• In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the equipment from being
affected by external influences. In general this will not damage the equipment, but
it can lead to spurious re-setting action, or momentarily may result in faulty operation.
What routine checks should I do?
Carry out the following tasks on a regular basis:
• Examine all cables for signs of damage, such as chafing, cuts or nicks.
• Check that all cables are securely connected.
