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.

1.1

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.

www.raymarine.com

Bright Sunny Day

Overcast Day

Night

LOW Power

Information

Battery is charged and being topped up by the sun. (see Note)

Battery is low and being charged by the sun.

Battery is charged and requires no further charging.

Battery is low but maintaining it’s level.

Battery is charged but is not charging.

Battery is low with no charging.

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.

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.

all lliig htt W L N T rre arrg e tth 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.

To enter a Log Calibration Factor

With the vessel under power, steer a straight course allowing the boat speed reading to settle to a constant value. Check the GPS is showing a constant SOG.

Maintenance and Fault Finding

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.

www.raymarine.com

37

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.

38 www.raymarine.com

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.
