Pathfinder Radar Scanners CAUTION: Do not use an open array scanner with an SL70, SL70 PLUS or SL70RC PLUS 7" LCD display unit. Failure to observe this may result in permanent damage to these display units. The 10 kW open array scanner requires 24 V or higher; it will not operate on 12 V systems. This handbook is divided into three chapters as follows: Chapter One provides information to help you plan the scanner installation. It includes sections on Unpacking and Inspecting the Components, Selecting the Scanner Site, Cable Requirements and Power Requirements. Chapter Two provides detailed instructions on how to mount and connect each type of scanner. Chapter Three provides instructions on how to perform the system checks, alignment and adjustments. It also provides information on maintenance and what to do if you have problems.
EMC installation guidelines
All Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry standards for use in the leisure marine environment. Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards, but correct installation is required to ensure that performance is not compromised. Although every effort has been taken to ensure that they will perform under all conditions, it is important to understand what factors could affect the operation of the product. The guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance, but it is recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all situations. To ensure the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the constraints imposed by any location, always ensure the maximum separation possible between different items of electrical equipment. For optimum EMC performance, it is recommended that wherever possible: Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are: At least 1 m (3 ft) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals e.g. VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 2 m (7 ft). More than 2 m (7 ft) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above and below the radiating element.

1.3 Selecting the scanner unit site
This section provides information that affects the possible locations of the scanner, and its position relative to the display unit and to the power supply. The dimensions of the each scanner unit are shown in the following diagrams. Selecting the best location for the scanner unit requires careful consideration of the following points, to ensure reliable and trouble free operation:
Note: In order to minimize potential interference to other systems on board ship (EMC), it is advisable to mount the scanner on a part of the boat that is insulated from the ships battery negative. If you cannot do this, and encounter problems, you can fit insulating bushes between the scanner and its mounting bracket.
Height: The scanner unit should normally be mounted as high as practical above the waterline, for three reasons: For safety reasons the scanner should be out of range of personnel, preferably above head height. This avoids mechanical danger and electromagnetic contact, particularly with the eyes. Radar operates at the line-of-sight, so a high mounting position gives better long range performance. Surrounding large objects, in the same horizontal plane, can interfere with the radar signal and cause blind areas or shadow sectors and false targets on the radar screen (see below). However, do not mount the scanner so high that it is affected by the pitching and rolling of the vessel. In addition, you may need to lower the scanner to avoid creating a shadow sector underneath the scanners beam.

Ideal Radiation Plane


Planing hull vessels, and some displacement hull vessels, adopt a higher bow angle when the vessel is at its cruising speed. In many cases this substantially alters and raises the radars main radiation plane, and can cause poor detection of nearby targets. It may be helpful to lower the radar beam back towards the parallel, by shimming the rear of the radar, so that the beam points slightly downwards with respect to the waterline when the vessel is at rest.

Wedge or washers

Using shims to lower the main beam


The shims may be made from aluminium plate wedges, simple flat washers, or an angled wooden block. For thick shims, you may need longer securing bolts than the M8x40 bolts supplied with the radome scanner, or the M10 studding supplied with the open array scanners.

1.4 Cable Requirements

This section provides details on selecting the appropriate cables for your system. Permissible cable lengths depend on the scanner type and the boats power system. Information on inter-unit and power cables is provided for both radome and open array scanners in the following sections. You need to consider the following before installing the cables: You need to connect the scanner to the display unit and to power. The cable required depends on the display unit and the scanner type as described below. All cables should be adequately clamped and protected from physical damage and exposure to heat - avoid running cables through bilges or doorways, or close to moving or hot objects. Acute bends must be avoided. Where a cable passes through an exposed bulkhead or deckhead, a watertight gland or swan neck tube should be used. Avoid cutting and re-joining cables (if necessary, refer to the notes below).

Scanner Cables

The cable used to connect your scanner to the display unit and power depends on the type of scanner and display as follows: A radome scanner connected to a Pathfinder or C-Series display requires an inter-unit cable. The scanner receives power via the display unit, the power cable is supplied with the display unit but cable details are provided in this section. An open array scanner connected to a Pathfinder display requires an inter-unit cable. The scanner receives power via the display unit, the power cable is supplied with the display unit but cable details are provided in this section. An open array scanner cannot be powered from a C-Series Display; it requires a split pedestal cable which combines the inter-unit and power cores. If you are connecting a C-series display to an existing open array scanner unit with a standard inter-unit cable, you can use the adapator cable instead of the split pedestal cable; connect the adaptor between the inter-unit cable and the display. These cables are illustrated in the following diagram. Cable lengths and part numbers are listed in Unpacking and inspecting the components on page 3. CAUTION: The cable for connecting an open array scanner to a C-series display cannot be extended.

CAUTION: Do not use the open array scanner with an SL70, SL70 PLUS, SL70RC PLUS or Autohelm 7" LCD display unit. Failure to observe this may result in permanent damage to the display unit. 10 kW open array scanner systems cannot be used directly with 12 V systems; they require a 12 V to 24 V converter rated to 180 W. Contact your authorized Raymarine dealer or distributor for details. Open array scanners draw considerable power from the vessels power source, especially in high wind speeds. It is essential for reliable operation that the unit is supplied with a low resistance power cable system, especially when operated from a 12 V power system. 12 V systems (4 kW scanners only) Extensions to the supplied power cable must be kept to a minimum and the power should be fed directly from the output of the battery isolator switch via its own dedicated cable system. It is recommended that no additional power switch is included in this power cable. CAUTION: The display unit does not include a fuse for scanner power, so an in-line fuse or circuit breaker MUST be included in the power cable. All power connections must be of high quality to minimize their resistance and to remove the risk of accidental shorts. Recommended maximum power cable extensions are given in the table below. These figures relate to the total cable extension, from the end of the supplied 1.5 m power cable to the system battery terminals. Do not exceed these lengths as unreliable operation may result.

Power Cable Core Size (each core) mm2: 4.0 AWG: kW Scanners <3.0 6.4.5 8.6.0 10.7.5
Note: If the required extension results in unacceptably large diameter cables, use two or more smaller gauge wires to achieve the required copper wire cross-section. For example, using two pairs of 2 mm2 is equivalent to using two single 4.0 mm2 cables.
24 V and 32 V systems These systems are less sensitive than 12 V systems to voltage loss in the power cables. However, it is still necessary to use adequate cables to prevent excessive power loss. The table below gives the recommended wire gauge for different power cable extension lengths. Raymarine recommends that power is fed directly from the output of the battery isolator switch via its own dedicated cable system. CAUTION: The display unit does not include a fuse for scanner power, so an in-line fuse or circuit breaker MUST be included in the power cable.

2.2 Open array scanner

Installation of the open array scanner should only be undertaken by a competent installer. If you have any difficulty with the installation, please contact your local Raymarine dealer or distributor. The open array scanner is supplied in two sections; the pedestal unit and the antenna. The pedestal unit is secured from below the mounting platform. The open array is then secured to the pedestal. Full details for mounting the scanner are given below. CAUTION: The pedestal unit has a cap fitted over the open array mounting shaft to protect the protuding co-axial pin. This cap must be left in place until the open array is fitted. The pedestal base is fitted with a seal: DO NOT grease this seal. WARNING: The open array scanner weighs: 48" scanner - 30 kg (66.2 lb); 72" scanner - 33.4 kg (73.7 lb). For safety reasons it is recommended that the unit is not lifted by one person. The unit is fitted with lifting eyes (maximum SWL 40 kg) to facilitate the use of standard lifting accessories, e.g. rope, chain or strop. The safe working load (SWL) of the lifting accessories should be 150 kg. Suitable lifting equipment could include a crane, hoist, or an appropriate rigid, overhead structure. Alternatively, the unit is suitable for a two person lift. Care must be taken to ensure that each person is standing on a stable surface, and that the pedestal is held carefully to ensure it cannot slip. The T-bar beneath the open array antenna can be used to aid lifting. You should never lift the scanner by holding onto the open array antenna.
Securing the pedestal to the mounting platform
1. Using the paper template supplied with the scanner mounting kit, mark the flat mounting surface with the holes and drill as indicated on the template. Refer to Section 1.2 when selecting the scanner unit site. 2. Stick the four self-adhesive bitumen washers over the mounting holes. 3. Ensure the lifting eyes are securely fitted to the top of the pedestal, and the yellow protective cap is in place. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the internal mounting bar, ensure the stud penetration is no more than 32 mm into the pedestal base. We recommend you mark each stud with tape, 32 mm from one end, to act as a gauge. 4. Grease the studs with Denso paste (supplied). Using two nuts locked together on the stud, screw each stud into the pedestal to a maximum of 32 mm, or until they bottom out. Remove these two nuts.
Note: If the studding supplied is not long enough, use M10 stainless steel, grade A4-70 studding of a suitable length. Refer to the following illustration for details.
5. Using suitable lifting equipment, raise the pedestal over the mounting surface. Carefully lower into position, taking care that the studs pass through the holes without damaging the threads. Ensure that the cable inlet is pointing aft. WARNING: Support the pedestal unit until it has been secured to the mounting platform. It is important that all four sets of nuts and washers are used to secure the pedestal to the mounting platform. 6. Referring to the following illustration, use the four nuts and associated washers supplied to secure the pedestal. Tighten the nuts to 30 Nm (22.1 lb ft.); ensure the scanner is tightly fitted. Grease the nuts with Denso paste (supplied). If required, cut-off any excess stud.

Pathfinder Radar Scanners The open array scanner has a power switch fitted to the pedestal. This switch can normally be left ON. However, if the scanner is being serviced or if any personnel are in the vicinity of the open array, the switch should be set to OFF.

Display timing adjustment
The display timing can be affected by the length of the cable used to connect the scanner to the display unit. This in turn affects the short range accuracy shown on the display. It is advisable to check the display timing before using the system for navigation.
72" open array position alignment
To ensure the 72" open array scanner rests in correct position when rotation stops, you need to adjust the radar set up as follows: 1. With the display switched on in Radar mode, press MENU then press the RADAR SET UP soft key. 2. Use the cursor to select the ANTENNA SIZE option, then press the 6 ft soft key. Press ENTER twice to return to the default display. If the Radar Set Up menu option ANTENNA SIZE is not available, then you have an older version of display software. The 72" open array scanner will operate correctly with this display. However, for details on adjusting the open array stopping-position, please contact your authorized Raymarine dealer or distributor.

3.2 Maintenance

The display unit and scanner unit contain high voltage. Adjustments require specialized service procedures and tools only available to qualified service technicians - there are no user serviceable parts or adjustments and the operator should not attempt to service the equipment. The operator should not
remove the rear cover of the display or any internal covers in the scanner.
Always turn the radar system off before carrying out any routine maintenance on the scanner or nearby equipment. Switch off the display unit before removing the power cord.

Routine Checks

The radar scanners are sealed units. Maintenance procedures are therefore limited to the following periodical checks: Examine the cables for signs of damage, such as chafing, cuts or nicks. Check that the cable connectors are firmly attached. Make sure the scanner and pedestal are still attached securely to the mounting. Once a year, remove, grease and re-attach the mounting bolts securing the scanner and pedestal.

Servicing and Safety

Raymarine equipment should be serviced only by authorized Raymarine service technicians. They will ensure that service procedures and replacement parts used will not affect performance. There are no user serviceable parts in any Raymarine product. Some products generate high voltages, so never handle the cables/connectors when power is being supplied to the equipment. When powered, all electrical equipment produces electromagnetic fields. These can cause adjacent pieces of electrical equipment to interact with one another, with a consequent adverse effect on operation. In order to minimize these effects and enable you to get the best possible performance from your Raymarine equipment, guidelines are given in the installation instructions, to enable you to ensure minimum interaction between different items of equipment, i.e. ensure optimum Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).

Pathfinder Radar Scanners Always report any EMC-related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer. We use such information to improve our quality standards. In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the equipment from being affected by external influences. In general this will not damage the equipment but it can lead to spurious resetting action, or momentarily may result in faulty operation.

3.3 Problem Solving

All Raymarine products are subjected to comprehensive test and quality assurance programmes prior to packing and shipping. However, if this unit should develop a fault, please refer to the following table to identify the most likely cause and the corrective action required to restore normal operation. If you still have a problem after referring to the table below, contact your local dealer, national distributor or Raymarine Product Support Department for further advice. Always quote the product serial numbers. The display unit serial number is printed on the back of the unit, and the scanner serial number is on the back of the scanner near the gland.

If you wish to see a section of the radar picture in more detail, you can use the Zoom function to magnify the selected area to twice its size. There are two zoom options: Zoom Into - The enlarged area is displayed in a quarter-screen Zoom Window in the lower right corner of the screen. A box in the original radar picture indicates the enlarged area; you can move this using the contextsensitive cursor, thereby changing the image in the Zoom Window. Note: If the area you wish to enlarge is in the quarter of the screen that will be covered by the Zoom Window, you should offset the center (see the next section) to move the area to another part of the screen before selecting Zoom mode. Zoom From - The enlarged area is displayed in the main window, with the original radar picture in a quarter-screen window in the lower right corner of the screen. A box in the original radar picture indicates the enlarged area; you can move this using the context-sensitive cursor, thereby changing the zoomed image. Page 19 Wednesday, March 6, 2002 9:44 AM
Note: You cannot use Zoom and Windows at the same time: if you turn one on, the other is turned off automatically, and restored when the latter is turned off again.


Figure 2-10: Changing the Chart Center


FIND SHIP is used in chart mode to re-draw the chart with the vessel at the center and the cursor homed onto the vessel.
When you press FIND SHIP the following occur: The chart is re-drawn with the vessels position in the center. The cursor is homed onto the vessel position and moves with it. When the vessel moves near the edge of the chart window, the chart is redrawn to place the vessel and cursor at the center again. The status bar indicates vessel position, speed and course over ground.
To release the cursor from homed mode press the trackpad to move the cursor away from the vessels current position. The status bar shows the cursor position, range and bearing.
Synchronize the Radar and Chart
If you have chart and radar windows on and you have selected Radar/Chart Synch in Chart Set Up (Section 7.7, Chart Set Up Parameters), FIND SHIP can be used to synchronize the radar and chart images. It is recommended that you set the radar to True motion to ensure the radar and chart images remain synchronised when the vessel moves. When you press FIND SHIP the following occur: Page 24 Wednesday, March 6, 2002 9:44 AM
The chart is redrawn so that its center position matches that of the radar display. The radar is redrawn to the scale and heading mode of the chart. Note: Depending on the topology of the coastline, the radar returns may not relate to the charted shoreline, the radar image will therefore be different to the chart display. For example, a gently sloping beach with a cliff several hundred metres beyond the charted coastline, the cliff is not shown on the chart but will be displayed on the radar image.

Changing the Chart Scale

The RANGE key allows you to change the chart scale so that you can see a smaller or larger area on the screen. Plotter mode is available to allow you to zoom into a smaller area, even when no chart data is available for that scale. Section 7.7 describes how to set plotter mode on/off. You can change the chart scale for two purposes: To see either more detail (of a smaller area) or a larger area (in less detail) on the screen. To move the display to another area of the chart, by zooming out to a small scale chart, then zooming in on another position centered on the cursor. The cartographic detail available on charts varies according to the chart scale and some areas include detail at smaller scales than others. This can cause blank areas on the display when adjacent areas with different levels of detail are displayed. To reduce this affect you can use the Chart Set Up options (see Section 7.7) to set chart display detail to simple. Then, as you zoom in, charted areas are displayed but with less detail shown. Each time you press the RANGE key, the chart scale changes to the next available setting. The status bar indicates the distance from top to bottom of the screen, in nautical miles.

In order to use these functions, you need the following additional data from equipment connected to your system via a SeaTalk or NMEA link:

Table 4-1:

Transducers Chartplotter
This chapter covers the following topics: Changing the heading mode of the radar picture Using marks Man Overboard (MOB) Cursor echo Note: Until you are familiar with interpreting the radar display, you should take every opportunity to compare the radars display patterns with visual targets, such as other vessels, buoys and coastal structures. You should practice harbour and coastal navigation during daylight and in clear weather conditions.
4.2 Changing the Heading Mode
The radar picture is normally shown with your vessels dead ahead bearing straight up, as indicated by the Ships Heading Marker at 0 relative bearing. This is the Head Up orientation. If heading information is available via a SeaTalk or NMEA connection, you can choose a different heading mode. In Course Up and North Up mode you can also select relative or true motion.

True and Relative Motion

Changing the Heading Mode
Relative motion is the default for the radar display. In relative motion your own ships position remains fixed on the radar screen and all radar targets move relative to your own ship. In true motion, fixed radar targets maintain a constant position on the screen, whilst your own ship moves across the radar image at the appropriate speed and heading. A map-like image is thus displayed, with all moving vessels travelling in true perspective to each other and to fixed land masses. As your ships position approaches the edge of the screen, the radar display is automatically reset to reveal the area ahead of your ship. You can manually reset your ships position at any time by pressing the TRUE REL soft key twice.

Heading Modes

Working with Waypoints

Chapter 7: Setting Up the System Defaults

7.1 Introduction

Once you have installed your display unit and are familiar with its basic operation (described in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2), you need to set it up so that it obtains the correct information from the equipment you have connected it to, operates according to your requirements, and displays information according to your preferences.
This is achieved using the soft key controls that are displayed when you press the MENU key. In most cases, you will only need to use the MENU key options when you first set up your system. However, you may decide to change the way you have customized some aspects, such as the screen and help setting, as you become more familiar with your system. Once you have set the values, they remain as the default settings until you reset them; they are retained even if you power off your display.
This chapter covers the following topics: Changing the default set up parameters System parameter functions and default settings Radar-specific parameter functions and default settings MARPA specific parameters and default settings Advanced Radar functions Chart specific parameter functions and default settings You should check the functions of the parameters, and decide on the new settings, before making the changes. Note: The SYSTEM SET UP menu option from the chartplotter display is the same as that accessed from the radar display SYSTEM SET UP menu.
7.2 Changing the Set Up Parameters
The set up parameters are divided into four sections: System, to control the aspects of the system that are not specific to the radar or chart. Radar, includes bearing alignment, display preferences and the timed transmission option. MARPA, to control the MARPA target tracking parameters, including target vectors, safe zone and target history display. Advanced, to control specialist radar settings such as display timing, STC preset and tune preset (see Section 7.6 for instructions on how to access these functions). Chart, to control the chartplotter display, including waypoint information, vectors and radar/chart synchronization. Note: The GPS and Track Set Up menus are described in Chapter 6. This section provides instructions for displaying and changing the default values. The following sections list the parameters and their possible settings, and describe the function of each parameter in turn.

Press the SELECT BOXES soft key to display the data box sub-menu. This allows you to select up to 6 data boxes that you can display. Note: 1. A fixed set of 9 (mono) or 16 (color) of these data items are available for display in the Nav Data half-screen window (see Chapter 2). 2. In addition to these grouped data boxes, boxes for the cursor readout, VRM/ EBL data, waypoint data, MOB data and simulator status are displayed when selected or when the appropriate function is active. Data boxes provide regularly used data in a compact form so that most of the picture can still be seen. The ones you select here can be turned on and off as a group during normal operation, and you can also move them around the screen individually using the context-sensitive cursor (see Context-Sensitive Cursor Control on page 1-14.).

Bearing Mode

The mode (magnetic or true) of all the bearing and heading data displayed. This is indicated in the radar status bar after the heading value.

Cursor Reference

The mode of the bearing data displayed for the cursor readout. The bearing information can be displayed in either of two forms: Relative: The bearing relative to your vessels heading. Mag/True: The actual bearing in either degrees magnetic or degrees true. This option is only available in Radar mode if your system includes a radar display and you have heading data from a compass. If you choose this mode, the selection you made for the previous parameter (Bearing Mode), M or T, is displayed in the cursor (Rng/Brg) data boxes. The current units are shown for the heading value in the status bar at the top of the screen.

G-Series Course Computer

Note: A 150 or 400 course computer coupled to the optional GyroPlus unit will provide heading data of equal quality to the 150G or 400G course computer. The method of connecting to your display is the same. If you have a Raymarine 150G or 400G course computer we recommend that you configure your system as follows and illustrated below: Connect the course computer NMEA1 output to the NMEA input and radar/chart overlay. In the System Set Up Menu set Bridge NMEA Heading OFF (see Bridge NMEA Heading on page 7-8).
