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.
Any attempt to take a Micronet product apart will invalidate the warranty.
The battery may only be replaced by a person trained and approved for
this purpose.

1.1
Introduction
Your Raymarine Remote Display provides a unique combination of
features:
Mobile display of instrument data
All data available on your Micronet network can be viewed wherever you
are located on your vessel.
Remote control of Micronet displays
The Remote Display can control the other Micronet displays on your
network, i.e. Maxi, Dual Maxi and remote enabled models of the Digital,
Dual Digital and Analogue displays.
Solar Power
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 Micronet 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 Micronet 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.
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.
Night
Battery is charged but is not
charging.
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. 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 28 S38) so that power is not being
wasted in displays which may not be visible from the one being viewed.
Note: 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.

Remote Display
Pocket Mode
When Pocket Mode is enabled (see page 28 S35) the Remote display
switches off the LCD panel after a user configured time delay. The unit
remains connected to the network and pressing any button switches the
display panel back on.
Sleep Mode
If there is no boat speed or change in heading registered on the system
for a period of 12 hours your Remote 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.
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 when little or no tide
is flowing.
To take account of tidal flow, the calibration run should be carried out
twice, once with the tide and once against the tide. The calibration
percentage factor should then be set to the average of the factors
determined by the two runs.
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.
Press and hold the
button for 2 seconds to enter Setup.
Press the
button to select the Sensors chapter.
Press the

5.1 Changing the Bezel
Each Remote Display is shipped with one white and one black bezel.
To change the bezel:
Caution: work in a location where parts cannot be lost overboard or in
the bilges as the keypad mat and lanyard attachment will fall free of the
main unit.
Remove the screw securing the lanyard attachment tab (bottom center
at the back of the unit).
Insert a large flat screwdriver blade into the lanyard attachment slot and
twist gently to separate the bezel and the instrument base at the bottom.
Carefully insert a finger on each side between the bezel and the base
and gently flex the sides of the bezel outwards, easing the bezel away
from the base.
Insert the keypad into the replacement bezel and lower the main unit into
the bezel applying slight pressure until a clicking sound indicates the
bezel is attached. Turn over the unit and check the bezel is secure all
around.
Replace the lanyard tab in its slot, with the moulded nut facing the back
of the unit and replace the screw.
Caution: take care not to over-tighten the screw.
It is not recommended that the bezel is frequently exchanged, this could
weaken the clips that attach the bezel to the base of the unit.
5.2 Cradle
Each Remote Display is supplied with 2 cradles. It is recommended that
one of these is mounted in a in a sunny or well illuminated place, so that
the Remote Display can be left to “recover” during the day in case it has
been used extensively at night.
To install the cradle:
Using the cradle as a template, drill three 2.5mm holes.Use three self
tapping screws (not supplied) to attach the cradle.

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.
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.
36
www.raymarine.com
Maintenance and Fault Finding
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.
Note: there is no external power facility for the Remote Display.
Low Battery Alarm sounds.
The power level is low in the Hull Transmitter, Wireless (NMEA) Interface
or Wind Transmitter. Enter Setup and Calibration Mode (Page 18) and go
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.
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 34. 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 34.

Remote Display
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.
Note: * The "Master Display" is normally the display which was used to
power up the entire system. This display may be different each time the
system is used. If the system is powered up using a Remote Display and
that display is in Pocket Mode, the Remote Display will hand over the
function of “Master” to another display on the network in order to
maintain network continuity if the Remote Display is taken out of network
range.
If you are fault finding and are uncertain which display is the Master,
switch off the system and switch on again (using a display other than a
Remote Display). The display which you switched on is now the Master.
