Ethernet

 

An address based data packet network capable of high speeds (10/100/1,000Mbs) originally developed for the computer industry that is seeing adoption in the marine industry. Ethernet networks are designed as a star topology. Systems of three or more nodes require a hub, router or switch to facilitate all point to point connections. An NMEA standard for the transfer of NMEA 2000 messages using an Ethernet protocol is being developed that will be called OneNet.

 

Cable System

There are numerous cabling systems for Ethernet but the ones applicable to Raymarine installations include:

 

 

 RJ45    SeaTalk hs    RayNet  

 Wifi

Cat5 w/ RJ45   SeaTalkHS   RayNet   WiFi

The standard cable/connector of the computer industry that is very low cost but alternatives such as SeaTalkHS and RayNet are preferred connectors in the marine environment.

 

Raymarine’s first generation Ethernet connector which consisted of putting a waterproof collar around an RJ45 connector.

 

Explore SeaTalkHS

 

Raymarine’s current generation system that replaces the RJ45 connector with a waterproof vibration tolerant twist pin connector that is designed for the marine environment.

 

A wireless system that doesn’t use any wires that provides for low cost flexible installations but are not as robust as wired systems. WiFi is ideal for non-mission critical accessory connections.

RayNet (F) to RJ45 (M) Port

The Raynet (F) to RJ45 Ethernet (M) adapter can be used to connect new a, c, e or gS-Series MFDs to the SR6 or 8-Port Seatalk High Speed network switch. 


When used in conjunction with a crossover coupler, this adapter can also convert the Ethernet connection on a RJ45 radar scanner cable, DSM or thermal camera for direct-connection to an HS5 network switch, or MFD RayNet port.


We are pleased to now offer this cable in 1, 3 or 10-metre lengths.

RayNet (F) to RJ45 (F) Adaptor

 This has a RayNet Female connector at one end and a RJ45 Female Gland connector at the other end. The Gland makes the RJ45 Female socket watertight.

A typical use for this cable would be to convert a "RJ45" Digital Radar Cable to a "RayNet" Radar Cable, so you can connect the cable directly into the new HS-5 Network Switch or directly into the back of an a,c,e or gS Series multifunction display.

RayNet (Male to Female) Right Angle Adaptor

This 90°, right angle RayNet connector has a RayNet "Male" one end and RayNet "Female" the other.

Ideal for the multifunction displays or the RMK-9 keypad to reduce the usual cable bend radius.

Adaptor Cable

 

The new Raynet (F) to SeaTalkhs (F) cable adapter allows you to fit the existing waterproof, locking SeaTalkhs cables used with G-Series, E-Wide, C-Wide and E-Classic* MFDs to new generation RayNet multifunction displays. 

*Note: The E-classic requires a "crossover" in the SThs data line, so this cable can only be used when connecting to the HS-5 Network Switch.

The new Raynet (F) to SeaTalkhs (M) cable allows to directly connect your G-Series, E-Wide, C-Wide and E-Classic* MFDs to new generation RayNet radar, sonar or other accessory that utilises the new RayNet connection.
The adapter cable is 10 feet (3m) long. 

*Note: The E-classic requires a "crossover" in the SThs data line, so this cable can only be used when connecting to the HS-5 Network Switch.

A typical use for this adaptor cable would be to convert the new "RayNet(F)" Digital Radar cable to the "SThs (M)" connector, so that it can be plugged directly into the back of a legacy multifunction displays (such as an E-Classic* or C/E-Wide display).

*Note: The E-classic requires a "crossover" in the SThs data line, so this cable can only be used when connecting to the HS-5 Network Switch via a suitable length RayNet extension cable.

RayNet Cable Puller (5 pack)

The Cable Puller securely attaches to the twist-lock plug on RayNet (F) networking cables and provide a convenient, center-mounted attachment point for your pull string.
 

The cable puller also protects the connector's internal pins from damage, acts as a fairing to make pulls through tight spaces easier, and prevents crush/bend damage to the cable/connector joint. The cable pullers are reusable, and come in packages of 5 pullers.
