Default Yamaha NMEA 2000

Helping a friend who is upgrading his electronics. He also upgraded his motors recently to the new Yamaha 300s.

Trying to hook the motors to his Raymarine E90Ws via NMEA 2000. I did this for another guy waaaaay back- prolly around 2005-2006 and remember that I had to buy an adapter that plugged into the Yamaha "hub" in the console.

Another problem. The last boat was a single motor on a bay boat. This one is twins with 2 station controls and the Yamaha "hub" thingy is full. Can I buy a "hub extender" and a cable to patch them together?


Thanks

Does the boat have the Command Link Plus colour multi-function gauge, the Command Link black and white multi-function gauges or ???

To add another hub you will remove the end line resistor from the last existing hub at the main station. This applies if you have an end line resistor in the hub. You might have a main bus harness that runs to the second station. If so, let me know.

In the port from which you removed the end line resistor you will insert a main bus harness. This harness will then plug into a main bus port on a new hub that will be needed and added. The end line harness removed from the existing hub will be inserted into the main bus port on the new hub.

You now have three device ports available. A Yamaha Command Link Plus Gateway, or Command Link Gateway if applicable, will be plugged into one of the device ports. A connection on the Gateway Plus or Gateway will connect to the NMEA 2000 network.

I'll have to go look at it to determine gauge type. I know they are squared off and there are 4 of them at each station but I haven't fooled with them. I saw the laminated cheat-sheet for gauge ops in the boat so I'll check that and post.

Re-reading your post, I think they are monochrome - not color but I'll make sure.

Just checked - gauges are black and white. 4 of them- 2 tachs, a fuel and speed.

If they are square, and if there is more than one guage, they are the monochome Command Link gauges. THis makes a difference. Give me a while and I will provide more information.

The colour display is rectangualar. The black and white are square or round.

Buy from Andy at simyamaha.com

You will need the standard Gateway. NOT the Gateway Plus.
