    The RayData will display a subset of the SeaTalk alarms sent by other instruments on the system, including Watch alarms. It can also send, display and cancel a Man Overboard (MOB) warning. Data Sent The RayData’s primary function is to display data received from its own transducers.

  • Page 14: Introduction, Chapter 2: Installation

    Chapter 2: Installation 2.1 Introduction This chapter explains how to install your RayData. If you are installing it as a stand-alone unit, you will need to install the speed and depth transducers and cables, and mount the RayData. If you are connecting your RayData to a larger system, you should refer to the installation instructions for the other units and for connection to the SeaTalk bus.

  • Page 15: Emc Installation And Service Guidelines, Important Note, Installation

    • Genuine Raymarine cables should be used at all times. Cutting and rejoining these cables can compromise EMC performance and so should be avoided unless doing so is detailed in this handbook.

  • Page 16: Check Before Going To Sea, Servicing And Safety, Packing List

    • Some products generate high voltages, and so never handle the cables/connectors when power is being supplied to the equipment. • Always report any EMC related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer. We will use any such information to improve our quality standards.

  • Page 17: Installing The Depth And Speed Transducers, Transducer Type

    2.4 Installing the Depth and Speed Transducers If you are installing your RayData as a stand-alone unit, you need to install the depth transducer and the speed transducer (incorporating the temperature transducer) that will be connected to the RayData. The depth and speed transducers are normally supplied with detailed installation and maintenance instructions.

  • Page 18: Installing The Speed Transducer (through Hull)

    Installing the Speed Transducer (Through Hull) For accurate speed readings, locate the speed transducer in the shaded ‘clear flow’ areas as shown.
