Default Raymarine c120w dsm 30 airmar b-60 mix and match rd418d

Ok electronics gurus, I need help making all this work. Right now I have the dsm 30 hooked up to the c120 via seatalk cable and was told that's all I need. Not sure how to tell if the dsm is on or not. Do I need a dedicated power cable for the dsm? Do I plug the power cable into the dsm instead of the c120? I haven't even played with the radar yet. I am getting a no data message in fishfinder mode. Please help I need all this to work by wednesay.

You need a dedicated power cord for the DSM, a dedicated power supply cable to the C Classic series plotter. You need a cable that plugs into the back of the C Classic series plotter to go from the DSM hole into the matching end on the DSM then you plug in the transducer. Do not plug in the power to the DSM until the transducer is plugged in! If you have a main breaker that all the electronics is plugged into, then make sure that when you are done at the end of the day, that you turn off the breaker. The DSM does not have an on/off switch. --- keep that in mind.

Lobsterman, as CME said, you need to provide power to both the C-Wide and the DSM. I'm not sure about the RD418D. I'm 99% sure you need to provide separate power to the dome also. My recommendation is to have each device with its own switch and fuze, so you can power cycle each item separately if needed.

I don't know if the C-Wide has two ethernet ports. If not, in order to connect the dome AND the DSM, you'll need the Raymarine STHS (ethernet) switch.

Hope this helps,

Joe

I'm running a C120W with a DSM 300 (the 1000W version of your 600W DSM 30) and a RD418HD (the HD color version of your RD418D), so basically the same components you have. The answers you have been given are correct. Each component has its own power cord which must be fused and (preferably) on a switch. The DSM has lights on the bottom which blink in codes to provide its status. The radar probably requires an in-line cross-over coupler if it's like mine. You will need the proper RM cables of the correct length. The manuals are invaluable to identify the part numbers for the various lengths and diagrams showing the proper configuration. If you don't have them, they may be found in the retired products section of the RM website. Shopping for the cables on-line will also help to show you the choices available.

It does and you don't need the switch. The C120W has 4 ports for the following cables: power/data cable (power, NMEA0183 and video), SeaTalkhs (for DSM), SeaTalkhs (for radar) and SeaTalkng (for NMEA2000).
