S-link™ is a CAN-based control system with full intelligent communication between all units in the system, much like a computer network.
Main advantages include:
Round, compact and waterproof connectors with unique keying and color coding to avoid faulty hookup
Unlimited number of commands or information transferred on a single cable
User feedback at panel
S-link™ Control Cable Overview
Forms the main "loop" around the boat.
Part #: 6 1320-xxM (xx=length) 6 1320-0.2M (0.2 m) 6 1320-2M (2.0 m) 6 1320-4M (4.0 m) 6 1320-7M (7.0 m) 6 1320-10M (10.0 m) 6 1320-15M (15.0 m) 6 1320-20M (20.0 m)
Must be used to connect all parts to the backbone cable (one for each component, no exceptions), recommended to be as short as practically possible.
Part #: 6 1321-xxM (xx=length) 6 1321-0.4M (0.4 m) 6 1321-1M (1.0 m) 6 1321-3M (3.0 m) 6 1321-5M (5.0 m)
Must be one in each system. Length 2.5 m.
Part #: 6 1328
Connects two backbone cables to extend length.
Part #: 6 1322
Must be one for each spur, including power cable.
Part #: 6 1326
Must be one in each end of the backbone "loop".
Part #: 6 1327
S-link™ System Examples
Examples 1 & 2:
S-link™ system for boats with two control positions and two DC proportional thrusters. Depending on the boat's construction, there might be several different ways to route the S-link™ backbone. Find the most practical way to implement the backbone and remember that the S-link™ equipment does not need to be connected in a specific order.
S-link™ system for boats with one control position and one retractable thruster.
