EMC Conformance
All Raymarine equipment is designed to the best industry standards for
use in the recreational marine environment. The design and
manufacture of Raymarine equipment conforms to the appropriate
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards. Correct installation is
required to ensure that performance is not compromised.
Important
Due to the wireless communication systems used in Micronet
instruments they are only recommended for use on boats up to 18 metres
(60 ft.) Before installing to a boat of aluminium or steel construction,
please contact your Raymarine dealer.
Like any other electronic instruments your Micronet system is designed
to serve only as an aid to navigation and it remains the skippers
responsibility to maintain a permanent watch and be aware of developing
situations.

Introduction
Your Micronet display is powered for life by the environment. Although
feature packed and highly visible in all conditions, current demand is so
low, and the supply so efficient, that the solar-powered display is self
sufficient. Combined with other displays in the Micronet range this
display becomes part of a complete navigational system.

Power Management and Battery Life
What makes your mn100 display possible is Raymarine’s revolutionary
approach to power management. By reducing the amount of power
being used by the electronics and maximizing the potential of the sun to
provide power, a mn100 display becomes a virtually perpetual device.
Power status is indicated by two icons on the display:
Battery Level
and
Charge Rate
Used together these icons will show the condition of the power supply.
2
www.raymarine.com
Information
Bright Sunny Day
Battery is charged and being
topped up by the sun. (see Note)
Battery is low and being charged
by the sun.
Overcast Day
Battery is charged and requires no
further charging.
Battery is low but maintaining it’s
level.
Battery is charged but is not
charging.
Night
Battery is low with no charging.
LOW Power
It is recommended that the
instrument be left in daylight for
some time for the battery to
recover, or charge from an external
9-30V power source. A fully
discharged battery will recharge in
approximately 12 hours of direct
bright sunlight.
If using the displays at night, power usage can be reduced dramatically
by switching the Backlighting to level 1 or Off. If Backlighting is not
required on displays located below decks it is best to set them to "Local"
Backlighting control (see page 26 -s35) so that power is not being
wasted in displays which may not be visible from the one being viewed.
If the internal battery is fully charged then it does not matter how
much the display is subjected to bright sunlight no further charging
is required and the Charge Rate Indicator will remain low.
If the displays are to be stored for a long period of time before next
use (Over Winter) ensure that the batteries are fully charged before
storage. If necessary connect to a 9 to 30V DC power supply for 24
hrs prior to storage, using the external power leads.
www.raymarine.com

mn100 Digital Display
Sleep Mode
If there is no boat speed or change in heading registered on the system
for a period of 12 hours your Micronet display will switch off to conserve
power. A "POWER SAVE" alarm will sound before the system switches
off. Pressing any button within 10 seconds of the alarm sounding will
allow the system to remain switched on.
Backlighting will automatically shut down/off when operated in daylight.
Artificial light WILL NOT recharge the battery. Placing your Micronet
display close to an artificial light will seriously damage the display.
Only recharge in natural daylight.
Applying External Power
In cases where displays are mounted permanently below decks it will be
necessary to apply an external power source to prevent complete
discharge of the built in battery.
Connections on the rear of the display allow a 9V to 30V DC power
source to be connected. Connections can be made to the vessels DC
system or to a 9V battery pack. It is recommended that permanent
connection is only made when the displays are permanently fixed to the
vessel and not when the clip brackets are used.
Connection to a 9V (PP3) battery will fully recharge the internal battery
over a period of 24 hours.
1.4
Safety and Disposal
Your Micronet display contains Manganese Lithium Dioxide batteries
which should be disposed of correctly. Do not dispose of any instrument
in domestic waste. Refer to regulations in force in your country.
If in doubt return the instrument to Raymarine Ltd. for correct disposal.

Speed Calibration
To ensure that the boat speed (and distance) is accurate it is necessary
to calibrate the speed to take into account variations in water flow
between different hulls. Adjustment is made by multiplying the speed
through the water (V) by a percentage calibration factor.
It is essential to carry out this procedure at a time where little or no tide
is flowing.

Maintenance and Fault Finding
6.1
Care and Maintenance
All Micronet products are totally sealed against water and are not
serviceable. Any attempt to take a Micronet product apart will invalidate
the warranty.
To clean, use only a damp, soft cloth. No detergents, solvents or
abrasives should be used. To avoid damaging a Micronet display unit
we recommend storing in the supplied soft pack when not in use.
If the displays are to be stored for a long period of time before next
use (over winter) ensure that the batteries are fully charged before
storage. If necessary connect to a 9 to 30V DC power supply for 24
hrs prior to storage.
6.2
Fault Finding and Technical Support
Power No Volts alarm sounds
The Hull Transmitter and Wireless (NMEA) Interface must be
connected to external power supplies. If this connection is
not made, then you will see this alarm 10 seconds after
powering up your system. Any DC voltage between 9 and
30V is sufficient to power the Hull Transmitter and Wireless
(NMEA) Interface.
Power Save Alarm sounds.
There has been no significant data activity on the network.
The alarm sounds to indicate that the display system will turn
itself off. To continue using the system press any button to
cancel the alarm.
Lost Network Alarm sounds.
On a single display this indicates that the particular display
has lost communication with the Master*. Either there is a
problem with the Master* display or the display in question
has been moved out of effective range.
On several displays this indicates that these displays have
lost communication with the Master*. Either there is a problem with the
Master* or the Master* has been moved out of effective range.
The displays will power down shortly after sounding the alarm to save
power.

mn100 Digital Display
A single display flashes the battery symbol and then switches off.
The battery level is low on the particular display affected. Connect to a 9
to 30V DC power source or leave in bright sunlight for 12 hours minimum
to recharge the display’s internal battery. If the particular display is the
system Master* then the other displays will sound the "Lost Network"
alarm. To continue using the rest of the system power down and restart
the system from another display.
Low Battery Alarm sounds.
The power level is low in the Hull Transmitter, Wireless (NMEA) Interface
or Wind Transmitter. On any Digital Display enter Setup and Calibration
Mode (Page 18) and scroll through to the Health Chapter. Check the
battery levels of the Transmitters and Interface Box. The battery level
icon should show 1, 2 or 3 bars to ensure correct operation. Connect the
Hull Transmitter or Wireless (NMEA) Interface to a 9 to 30V DC power
source for 12 hours minimum to recharge the internal battery. Leave the
Wind Transmitter in bright sunlight for 12 hours minimum to recharge its
internal battery.
Data is shown as dashes.
The information is not being transmitted to the displays. There may be
lost communication between the Wind Transmitter or Hull Transmitter
and the displays. On any Digital display enter Setup and Calibration
Mode (page 18) and scroll through to the Health Chapter. Check the
signal levels of the Hull and Wind Transmitters. The signal level should
show a value of greater than 3 to ensure correct operation.
Compass Transducer rattles and/or splashes.
Good! The fluxgate compass is gimballed in a fluid filled container to
ensure it is not affected by the boats movement in the water.

Maintenance and Fault Finding
Compass information displayed on the system does not agree with the
main steering compass.
Ensure that the main steering compass has been swung correctly and
is showing correct information. Ensure that the display system has
completed correctly the "Swing" procedure described on page 32. If
there are still differences, look for magnetic objects (loud speakers,
pumps and motors, etc.) close to the transducer and try mounting the
compass transducer in an alternative location. After changing position of
nearby equipment or the Compass Transducer it will be necessary to reswing the compass following the procedure on page 32.
Boat Speed reads 0.
Information being transmitted from the Hull Transmitter is being received
with a zero value. Check the paddle wheel for fouling, clean it and make
sure it turns easily.
Wind Speed reads 0.
Information being transmitted from the Wind Transmitter is being
received with a zero value. If the anemometer cups at the top of the mast
are turning and the wind speed reads zero then there is a problem with
your Wind Transmitter.
No NMEA data showing on external displays.
From any Digital display enter Setup and Calibration Mode (page 18)
and scroll through to the Health Chapter. Check the signal level and
battery status of the Wireless (NMEA) Interface. If the signal level shows
a value of greater than 3 then check the data connections and the
settings of the NMEA source equipment to ensure that NMEA 0183 is
being transmitted correctly.
The Depth Alarm does not sound.
If the actual water depth is shallow and the alarm has not sounded it is
most likely that the alarm is switched off. From any Digital Display enter
Setup and Calibration Mode (page 18) and scroll through to the Depth
Chapter. Ensure the Depth Alarm settings are correct.
The "Master Display" is the display which was used to power up the
entire system. This display may be different each time the system
is used. If you are fault finding and are uncertain which display is
the master the switch off the system and switch on again. The
display which you switched on is now the Master.
