RAIM Status

RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) is a fault-detection feature required by IMO for type-approved GPS units. It is another layer of safety that alerts the operator that a condition may exist in the GPS positioning solution that reduces the desired accuracy of the ship’s position. This feature requires at least five GPS satellites to operate properly, four satellites or less will indicate a RAIM caution condition (R?). If the statistical RAIM error exceeds a specified limit (100 meters-default) a RAIM Unsafe (R-) alert will be indicated. This means that the RAIM estimated position error is equal or greater than the preset limit. The operator is advised to take extra precautionary measures when using the navigation solution until the RAIM indicator switches to RAIM safe (R+) condition.

Selecting data sources

A data source can be a GPS sensor, junction box with connected GPS antenna or a device connected to the network, providing data to other devices. Data can be of different type such as position data, compass data, depth data, etc. Source of position selection is required on initial start up of the system, if any part of the CAN bus network has been changed or replaced, or if an alternative source is made available for a given data type and this source has not been selected automatically.

At the first time turn on of the GN70/MX61x the display will ask you to do an auto selection of data sources. You can have it perform an auto selection by pressing the ENT key. It will search for all available source of position, navigation, compass from an internal SimNet priority list. If a data source is connected to SimNet after the first time turn on, this will be identified and automatically selected if no other data source already is selected for the given data type.

¼

Note:

Only sources providing valid data are visible and can be selected.

Auto Select

The Auto Select option will look for all SimNet sources connected to the network. If more than one source is available for each data type, the system will automatically select from an internal priority list.

The Auto select function is mainly for situations where the automatic source selection needs to be updated because a selected data source is not supplying data or has been physically replaced with another one. The update secures that the existing source selections are valid and maintained. Missing sources are either automatically exchanged with an alternative source from the list of available sources for the given data type, or the replacing source is selected.

Manual Source Selection

You can manually select the preferred source. This is useful if you have more than one of the same type of device (i.e. multiple GPS antenna units) on the network.

Available sources are listed as shown in the example below. You select active source by ticking the preferred unit. Each GS70 antenna is noted with a serial number (i.e. 100E32#).

Notes:

• If MXJB-NMEA3 (Port 3) is selected as position source the “Configure” button is not available. To configure Port 3, it has to be deselected first as source.

• At power up or when resetting the GPS antenna the J-Box sends a setup command to change the antenna baud rate to 19,200. Port 3 in turn switches itself to 19,200 baud automatically. • Group selection The GN70/MX61x can use GPS antennas or data sources that all other products on the N2K network use, or you may select individual sources for the GN70/MX61x system. If the group is set to “Simrad”, any changes to a source will also affect other similar display systems on the network. If the group is “None”, the selected source will be used for that particular GN70/MX61x unit only.

• Advanced selection This is similar to the manual selection mode. Using this mode will allow you to view all the available resources available in the N2K network. Selection can be done by placing a check mark on the item selected. You can only use one source of position at a time.

SimNet Groups

The SimNet Group function is used to control parameter settings, either globally or in groups of units. The function is used on larger vessels where several SimNet units are connected via the network. By assigning several units to the same group, a parameter update on one unit will have the same effect on the rest of the group members. The illustration below shows a network of three GN70/MX61x units (two on the bridge and one in the remote area). The two units on the bridge can be made to belong to one group (i.e. Group #1) so that when the backlight and damping settings is adjusted in one of the bridge units, the other GN70/MX61x display settings will also change. The third GN70/MX61x unit in the remote location which does not belong to group #1 will not be affected.

RAIM Feature

RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) is a fault detection feature that works in conjunction with the MX antenna unit. It gives the operator timely warnings when the GPS system error exceeds the pre-set limit of 100 meters. This feature requires at least five or more GPS satellite to operate properly. There are three RAIM states, namely: • RAIM safe (R+) - system error is less than 100 meters • RAIM unsafe (R-) - system error is equal or more than 100 meters • RAIM caution (R?) - RAIM is not available as less than 5 satellites are available The Enabled RAIM and RAIM alert can be disabled by removing the check mark next to them. The RAIM protection radius can be either 10 or 100 meters. Default setting is 100 meters.

Lat/Long Offset

This feature allows the operator to enter the Latitude and Longitude offset values between the center of the ship to antenna position. ¼

Note:

Heading data is required to enable this function.

GNSS Mode

Depending on the antenna type in use, the operator can select whether the position Lat/Lon will be determined using autonomous GPS satellites only or combination of GPS and GLONASS satellites. The GPS+GLONASS selection becomes available only when the GS70/ MX521B or MX575D/HS80A antenna model is in use.

WAAS is also known in general term as SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation System). This also includes EGNOS, MSAS and other satellite based GPS correction systems implemented by host countries. SBAS correction is not recognized by IMO and should not be used in lieu of the land-based differential station signals. It is recommended to turn the DGPS mode to OFF when navigating in areas where the land-based differential beacon signals are not available.

Navigation settings panel

44 | Navigating with the GN70/MX61x | GN70/MX610/MX612 Operator and Installation Manual

Navigation method

Different methods are available for calculating the distance and bearing between any two points on a chart.

The Great Circle (GC) route is the shortest path between two points. However, if you are to travel along such a route, it would be difficult to steer manually as the heading would constantly be changing (except in the case of due north, south, or along the equator).

Rhumb lines (RL) are tracks of constant bearing. It is possible to travel between two locations using Rhumb line computation, but the distance would usually be greater than if Great Circle is used.

Steering alarm limits

Arrival radius

Sets an invisible circle around the destination waypoint.

The vessel is considered to have arrived at the waypoint when it is within this radius.

Off course (XTE) limit

This parameter defines the vessel’s accepted offset distance from the leg. If the vessel goes beyond this limit an alarm will be activated.

Arrival alarm

When the arrival alarm is enabled, an alarm will be activated as the vessel reaches the waypoint or when it is within the specified arrival radius.

Magnetic variation

Magnetic variation is the difference between true bearings and magnetic bearings, caused by different location of the Geographic and the Magnetic north poles. Any local anomalies such as iron deposits might also affect the magnetic bearings.

Magnetic variation is applied in order to navigate with heading in “True” mode when a magnetic compass is used as source.

When set to Auto, the system automatically converts magnetic north to true north. Select manual mode if you need to enter your own local magnetic variation.

Datum

Most paper charts are made in the WGS84 format, which also is used by the GN70/MX61x system.

If your paper charts are in a different format, you can change the datum setting accordingly to match your paper chart.

Coordinate system

Several coordinate systems can be used to control the format for Lat/Long coordinates displayed on the POS and PLOT panels.

Maintenance Preventive maintenance

The GN70/MX61x display and antenna unit does not contain any field serviceable components, therefore the operator is required to perform only a very limited amount of preventative maintenance.

It is recommended that you use an optional protective sun cover when the display unit is not in use.

Simple maintenance procedures

Cleaning the display unit

The supplied cleaning cloth should be used to clean the screen, where possible. Use plenty of water to resolve and take away salt remains. Crystallized salt may scratch the coating if using a damp cloth. Apply minimal pressure to the screen. Where marks on the screen can’t be removed by the cloth alone, use a 50/50 mixture of warm water and isopropyl alcohol to clean the screen. Avoid any contact with solvents (acetone, mineral turpentine etc.) or ammonia based cleaning products, as they may damage the anti glare layer, plastics bezel, or rubber keys.

To prevent UV damage to the plastic bezel and rubber keys, it is recommended that sun cover be fitted when the unit is not in use for an extended period.

Checking the keys

Make sure that no keys are stuck in the down position. If one is stuck, wiggle the key to free it back to normal.

Checking the connectors

The connectors should be checked by visual inspection only. Push the connector plugs into the connector, if the connector plugs are equipped with a lock; ensure that this is in the correct position.

Troubleshooting

Failure Unit fails to turn ON Corrective action Make sure the power cable is plugged in to the back of the GN70/MX61x and the 12-24 VDC power is turned ON. The unit normally takes about 30 seconds to re-boot when power connection is removed and re-connected.

Check the in-line fuse (or circuit-breaker) of the power cable. Replace the fuse when blown.

Using a voltmeter, verify that the 12-24 VDC supply is present on the power cable connector pins .

If problem persist, replace the GN70/MX61x unit.

Mounting General

The standard mounting of the GN70/MX61x display is in-dash or panel mount. If there is a need to bracket mount the unit, an optional U-bracket assembly can be ordered separately.

Mounting location

The GN70/MX61x unit should be mounted with special regard to the unit’s easy access for operation and maintenance, environmental protection, temperature range, cable connection and cable length. Survey the front and back of the instrument panel where the unit will be mounted before cutting the mounting hole to make sure there is ample room around the unit and no hidden electrical wires or other parts will be damaged behind the panel. The panel mounting surface must be flat and even to within 0.5 mm. The GN70/MX61x conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) stan dards, but proper installation is required to get best use and performance from this product. Ensure adequate separation from other on-board electronics and electrical equipment.

GN70/MX61x control unit

Avoid mounting the GN70/MX61x control unit where it is easily exposed to sunlight, as this will shorten the lifetime of the display. If this is not possible, make sure the unit is always covered with the optional protective cover when not in use.

Antenna systems

Several Itype-approved antenna models can be used with the GN70/MX61x, namely: • MX521B - GPS/DGPS smart antenna (NMEA 0183 interface). - Standard • HS80A or MX575D D/GPS compass unit (N2K or NMEA 0183 interface) - Option • GS70 - GPS/WAAS smart antenna (N2K interface) - Option As a general rule, the antenna unit must be located in the open where it will have a good view of the sky aournd it. It must also be located away from large metal objects that can block the GPS signal as well as influence the operation of the antenna unit.

Antenna mounting guidelines

• Install the antenna where it has a clear view of the sky around it • Ensure a minimum distance of 1 m to other GPS antennas • Keep it away from large metal structures like the main mast or overhead railings • Stay away from high-powered transmitter antennas like SSB, VHF and other radio transmitter antennas • Mount the GPS antenna low to avoid excessive position and speed errors while underway • Locate the antenna at least 10 meters away and below the transmitting beam of the radar and INMARSAT antennas.

¼

Note:

Powerful Xenon search lights emit strong RF radiation that could interfere with GPS reception. We recommend providing extended horizontal distance separation from the MX61x antenna unit. Minimum vertical separation should be 3 meters above the light. Please refer to manufacturer’s instruction for more details.

Mounting | GN70/MX610/MX612 Operator and Installation Manual | 67

MX61xJB junction box

The MX61xJB mounting location must allow for easy access when connecting the cables. Also ensure that the location for the computer units allows viewing the board’s LED indicators.

The mounting surface needs to be structurally strong, with as little vibration as possible. If possible, mount the unit close to the edges of a panel to minimize vibration.

Ensure that any holes cut are in a safe position and will not weaken the boat’s structure. If in doubt, consult a qualified boat builder. Ensure that there are no hidden electrical wires or other parts behind the panel.

Preferably mount the junction box with the cable entries exiting downwards.

Mount the cable retainer included with the MX610 J-Box on the wall beneath the unit.

Wiring Wiring guidelines

The CAN network cables and other signal cables (i.e. antenna, compass, NMEA) should not be run in parallel with other cables carrying radio frequency or high current, such as VHF and SSB transmitters, battery chargers/generators, and winches.

Don’t make sharp bends in the cables, and avoid running cables in a way that allows water to flow down into the connectors. If required, make drip and service loops.

If cables are shortened, lengthened or re-terminated, do insulate and protect all wiring connections.

Most of the units are communicating on the CAN bus with drop cables. Try mounting the units within the standard cable length supplied with each unit. Additional cables and cable extensions are available from our distributors.

!

Warning:

Before starting the installation, be sure to turn electrical power off. If power is left on or turned on during the installation, fire, electrical shock, or other seri ous injury may occur. Be sure that the voltage of the power supply is compatible with the spec for the units!

GN70 or MX61x navigation system; basic wiring principles

The GN70/MX61x display uses CAN bus backbone, which makes it simple to interface to SimNet and other NMEA 2000 (N2K) devices. The 12-Volt DC power to the CAN bus can be supplied through a T-Connector or by the junction box.

NMEA 0183 devices such as the MX521B DGPS smart antenna, autopilots, radar and PC-based ECDIS can be interfaced using the MX61xJB junction box. In systems with the MX61xJB junction box the CAN bus is powered by the junction box. The GN70/MX61x models have separate power supply cables and can be wired directly to 12-24 VDC. Other SimNet/NMEA devices are powered by the CAN bus.

The following sections describe installation of the components listed in the illustration below. Refer to separate manuals for detailed information about each interfacing unit.

CAN bus

The CAN bus is based on the well known SimNet plug & play concept and on the NMEA 2000 (N2K) SAE J1939 protocol. Hard wiring is based on standard NMEA 2000 cables with Micro-C type connectors and joiners. The bus consists of a linear backbone using drop cables and Micro-C T-joiners for connecting NMEA 2000 and SimNet devices.

The bus has a maximum cable length of 150 m (500 ft), and a drop cable has a maximum length of 6 m (20 ft).

In a default GN70/MX61x system the CAN bus backbone expands from the MX610JB, which supplies power to the backbone. There will always be a female connector in the expanding end of the backbone cables.

Note:

If cables are not supplied by Simrad, ensure that they meet NMEA 2000/IEC61162-1/2 requirements.

Planning and installing a network backbone

• Plan the network carefully

-

It is recommended to create a diagram of the network prior to starting the installation • Run the backbone between the locations of all CAN devices you want to install

-

It must be less than 6 m (20 ft) cable run from a device to the backbone • Consider the load/current draw from the devices For details on network cables and components, refer to our websites: www.navico.com/commercial and www.simrad-yachting.com

Wiring | GN70/MX610/MX612 Operator and Installation Manual

Terminating the CAN bus

The CAN bus must have a 120 Ohm terminator at each end of the backbone. In a default GN70/MX61x system the CAN bus can be powered and terminated from the junction box PCB, enabled by the micro switch.

-

Set the switch to ON when the MX610JB board is at the end of the CAN bus

-

Set the switch to OFF when the MX610JB board is used as additional power supply to the CAN bus which already has correct termination.

Factory default setting of MX610JB terminator is ON.

For location of the dip switch, refer to the illustrations inside the junction box unit.

A terminator in the other end of the CAN bus can be one of the following: • A power cable with built in terminator (plug marked 120 Ohm) • A single terminator plug (marked 120 Ohm)

Shield connection

It is required to use shielded cables to meet radio frequency interference requirements as defined in the NMEA 2000 specification: • The shield shall not be electrically connected within the interface to the electronic device chassis or ground • The shield shall be electrically continuous through the network connection • The shield shall be connected to ground at a single point, normally the ship’s ground at the source of network power

Power supply

¼

Notes:

• Wheelmark/US Coast Guard approved systems require a Power Failure alarm. In such installations the GN70/MX61x and the MX610JB must be connected to different independent power supplies.

• It is recommended to install an external on/off switch or circuit breaker for the Junction Box power supply.

• Do not connect the power cable to the same terminals as the start batteries, drive units, thruster or other high current products.

• If joining to an existing NMEA 2000 network or similar CAN bus network that has its own power supply, use an NMEA 2000 Gateway to isolate the two power supplies.

Powering the CAN (N2K) bus

The CAN bus can be powered at one end using the MX61x junction box. For larger systems the power should be connected at a central point in the backbone to balance the voltage drop of the network.

NMEA 2000 and SimNet devices

NMEA 2000 devices can be connected to the CAN bus providing they are NMEA 2000 certified, meet the CE, FCC regulations and do not exceed the load specification. NMEA 2000 devices and SimNet devices with Micro-C connectors connect directly to the CAN bus backbone using drop cables and Micro-C T-joiners.

Connecting the MX61xJB computer to the N2K bus

The MX61xJB smart junction box features a built-in 15 V power supply for the N2K bus and GPS antenna. The junction box can form one end of the network with the built-in terminator set ON (default). With the terminator set to OFF, the junction box can connect anywhere on the N2K bus back bone by using a drop cable connected to the SIMNET connector and a male connector on the Micro-C T-joiner. Drop cables of varying lengths can be purchased from local SIMRAD dealers.

Alarm interface

External alarm

An external alarm can be connected to the GN70/MX61x display unit. The alarm signal has an open contact for an alarm buzzer or an external alarm relay as illustrated below. The alarm voltage is the same as the main supply voltage. The maximum load on the external alarm output is 0.75 Amp.

Alarms are configured globally in the system, i.e. they can be configured on one unit and seen, heard and acknowledged from all other SIMRAD control units.
