Default Electronics installation pics

Anyone care to show off their electronics installation. I'm talking about the wiring and connnections behind the console. Might be some help to some of the do-it-your-selfers including me.

Here's a few pix's from the last couple of day's. It's a start, far from done. There is a lot of stuff going in this boat. The cables are all 1/0. Crimped,soldered, heat shrunk, labeled and clear heat shrunk.

2- Deep Cycle Optmia's w/ Newmar BI-100 intragrator's. It still need's the insulated cover's on the Pos cables.


2- Starting Optmia's.


Master Cut off switch's.


Blue Sea's Terminal's at the transom. The factory Suzuki cables will connect here.

You like that? Those are Optmia Trolling Furry battery box's.
http://www.optimabatteries.com/publi...eep_cycle.html

I've seen the box's on the net for $49 to $25. They were a little over $14 at Advance Auto Part's. They priced matched the net on the batteries.

Cooper - Very impressive Can you remove the filter elements on the f/w seps (looks tight) ? Why are there 2 "outputs" on each of the the f/w seps ?

Warthog - Very compulsive (I mean detailed) use of the P-Touch. Great idea - it leaves nothing to the imagination.

Birdy,

How did you connect the GPS output to the Icom for the DSC function to work properly? I recently installed the I502 and have the seatalk junction box like yours. BTW - nice post and wiring job.

Keep the pics coming! These are a great learning tool.

If you have any pictures of your dual battery setup, that would be great also.

Thanks Guys!!

Wart,

Yep, those are my proud yellow automotive connectrs!! When I did that, I had no #8 size marine ones, stuck those on "temporarily". But you know what we say about temporary right? "There is nothing more permanant than something temporary"! They are enlcosed and bone dry so they haven't been a problem, but "someday" I'll swap em' out!!

Tireless,

If you look at my first picture, that is my "documentation" for my helm electronics. It has an acutal picture of the junction box, along with text explaining what each connection consists of with wire colors and everything. So, if you look at Port 9 and 8 on the junction box (the long one, NOT the Seatalk box!) you see on the left side RL70 NMEA plus and minus Outputs (wire colors White and Blue as depicted). Then on the right side of Port 9 and 8, you see several NMEA inputs connected. One of them is the VHF NMEA plus and minus Inputs (wire colors Sld [sheild] and Wht [White] which both attach to the M502's RCA connector. The M502's NMEA outputs are not being used, and you can see them on ports 18 and 19 (very top of junction box) with nothing connected to them. The reason they are not used is the RL70 does not support NMEA inputs of DSC position request response sentences unfortunetely.
