Default Raymarine e125, Chirp Sonar Modules, Network Switch etc…

Raymarine e125, Chirp Sonar Modules, Network Switch etc…

CP100 Chirp Down*vision
CP200 Chirp Side-vision
HS5 SeaTalk HS Network Switch
Down-Vision Sonar Module
Side-Vision Sonar Module
DSM 300 Module
Cabling etc...

I’m finding out that all this takes up lots of room in the back circuit breaker compartment…

I’ll post pics when I finish my retrofit job….

Lets see some pics of members Installed components
and their electronics setup, behind the dash or below deck etc…

Post them pics.

Thanks

When you take off your wiring compartments hatch and see that you have limited space on the circuit barker panel, fuse blocks and BusBars.

You need to add additional Fuse Blocks or larger fuse blocks...

(Did not want to hook into my boats main 40 plus BusBars panel)
Which is almost full.


So I am upgrading my Six Fuse Block for a Twelve Fuse Block... and adding two BusBars so that my new electronics will have some organization with easy access and labeling....

wiring compartment has limited space
(Far away photo look cluttered...)
Close up shots show organization...



Always connect to from the battery switch 1) 2) or Both on the back side of the switch...
for always on items...




Six Fuse Block that I had installed on the side wall



Will be adding this Twelve Fuse Block with two additional BusBars, One Positive and One Negative in place of the six on the side wall



Taking the main wiring from the boat to the two additional BusBars to the Twelve Fuse Block in the wiring compartment.

Always have a good supply of Marine Wiring on hand for any wiring job... and with the right wire gauge (AWG) for the job...

This job requires 4 (AWG)
from the Battery Switch,
to the fuse blocks and BusBars.
and to the circuit barker and Fuse panels



Then running two additional main positive and negative wires to a new Six Fuse Block located at the electronics housing station, Modules, and Network Switch etc...




Made a new shelving unit and painted it gray to match the color of the modules, for my electronics housing station, Modules, and Network Switch etc...

placed it in a dry compartment, and foamed it in and used dowel rods placed in the foam as anchor's for a snug and secure fit with no vibration...

Once all the additional stuff gets in, the shelf's will be full and have its own Six Fuse Block close to all the Modules and switched for easy hookup and servicing the Modules and fuses etc...

(the shelving area will be cleaned up some when completed)
When hatch is closed you will never know they are there...

If anyone has any suggestion, I would like to hear them?

Thanks

Looks like for the new electronics Six Fuse Block that I will be using for the Modules and Network Switch...

I will need to take it from the Electronics Circuit Breaker off of the switch on the main panel...

I followed this wiring up to the top electronics box BusBars panel for my marine VHF radio, and the Raymarine125, and Radar, etc...

so now it looks like I will also need to feed off of the breaker to the new Six Fuse Block for the Modules and Network Switch located below deck.

So the breaker switch will turn then on and off...

VERY professional looking install! I love the shelves where you've got the modules mounted. I assure you I will NOT be showing the rats nest of wires I've got under my console.

Do you want to come to TIdewater, VA and clean up my stuff? <grin>

Pretty work,

Joe

I still need to add the new CP200 Module, A Six Fuse Block panel and Ground Buss Block on the side of the shelving...

Waiting on UPS shipment... and the CP200's are not yet shipping till the end of this month... So I have it on back-order...

Then will have room for two more Modules...
