HS5 SeaTalkhs Network SwitchThe HS5 SeaTalkhs Network Switch works with most of Raymarine's latest Multifunction Displays and accessories and serves as the central connection point for the SeaTalk High Speed Network.The HS5 uses the new Raynet waterproof connection system found on c-Series and e-Series displays, and provides a secure, reliable weather tight connection. Up to 5 displays or other peripherals can be connected directly to the HS5 network switch. The 5 ports all support 10 or 100 Megabit speeds when connected to peripherals like displays, scanners, sounder modules or thermal cameras. The 5th port also supports Gigabit speed for interconnecting multiple HS5 switches together on very large networks.The compact HS5 works on both 12V and 24V dc power systems, and is simple to install with large keyhole mounting slots and front-facing status indicators.
Systems with more than 5 SeaTalkhs devices require more than one network switch. Network switches can be connected together (daisy-chaining) for this purpose.
The network switch provides a dedicated high-speed (1000 Mbit/S) port for connecting switches together while still retaining full data bandwidth throughout the system.
Each switch only has one high-speed port (port 5), so you can only connect up to 2 switches using the high-speed (1000 Mbit/S) connection. Any additional network switches must be connected together using a standard speed (100 Mbit/S) port.
Note: The maximum number of SeaTalkhs devices that can be connected in any single system is 25.
