    NX2 FDX Server Module

    Any Scandinavian or European Silva/Nexus entusiast in this forum who can test if my FDX server is working on their instrument ? . I do experience that it is rather unstable on my Hanse 371 I have worked on it for a while try to get it worked. In the beginning showed data on my multi . Depth, Log, Compass . (no wind attached for the moment) . No I don´t get any readings. Im not able to reset . The instruments only loops . I´m living in Norway . Send PM .

    Nexus Nx2 Wind Issue .

    Hi , i’ve hooked up the server on the boat again to get the input from depth , compass and speed . Ufortunately I have not succed to get any data on the multi display . I got error 3 and 2 . The multi reboot after approx 1 minute. I have not connetced the wind trandeducer in the mast yet . Waiting for cherry picker to become availible. It is not possible to reset Multi display . Multi do not respond to C key . If connect PC trough the USB the racesoftware do not identify any display (Analog or multi) Or server . Server blink on the depth and speed earlier i have been able to get depth,speed and compass altough the wind have been working No i have nothing . Any idea ?! I have checked the connections and cable several times. Could it be the server who have hickup ?!

    Nexus Nx2 Wind Issue .

    @olsen370 @galacticair @jarcher Finally I made some improvements!!. I disconnected the Multi and connected the analog wind instrument . Then I managed to connected the FDX Racesoftware and witness that the wind and heading was shown wind heading and wind speed . After that I tried to connect the multi in daisy chain . I Finally got the Presskey . But it return with an error 02 and error 03 . The racesoftware and the analog wind was working when the multi failed !. What do you think can be done with the Multi to get it working !? .

    @olsen370 thank you . For the drawing . I decided to bring home the server and the transducer for more troubleshooting . In this system the wind transducer is connected to server together with the Multi Instrument nothing else. The transducer is connected to the colour code with terminal connectors. Since the Nexus plug on the Garmin to Nexus was cutted. (I have order a new cable from Garmin) . I have checked with multi meter that there are connection between the cable ends. When I got power on it is on for some minutes then it goes to error code 2 or 3 . I Have tried to press C on startup / boot sequence - no respons . it goes directly into the menu . without the display "Press Key ". I tried to connect the R232- USB - and it connected with the racing software on com3 . Calibration and configure menu was not enabled. @jarcher do you have any tips for the factory reset when C is not working- or if possible to control this from my pc . ?

    Im sorry about the confusion . I´m suffering for being an amature with lack of understanding about the system . Im trying to learn of your post and I have gained much more knowledge. I must admit that the last post I have been confused and tired of not solving the issue . Jarcher thank you very much for the patience and help on responding and the rest of you . I will assume that the wind transducer is working and go trough the wiring again and reset the Multi by pressing C. Taking step by step . Keep you posted.

    I manage to get down the adapter yes it was essential to connect it to Server . old style ? not sure . It was twisted . I cut of the nexus end to eliminate the possibility for errors . Thanks' for the confirmation on the network setting . Next step : How about testing the wind transducer actually is working . - Can I connect green and shield and use multimeter with oscilloscope to check pulse on yellow and white ?

    Nexus Nx2 Wind Issue .

    This morning I was pretty confident in solving the Wind Tranceducer issue that I have! Turned out that the Garmin To Nexus cable was twisted. Yellow was shield and shield was Yellow. Green and White was the only correct ones After correction the connection with pin with terminal block I tested connection trough Garmin to Nexus Adapter and got "beeps" for the 3 conductors and the shield. I further connected the cable directly to Network - 5-6-7-8 .Instrument was setup to 76 OFF. No Result :-( In frustration I cut the Nexus connection side of the Garmin plug and connected the correct colours trough the terminal block and further to Network . Neither a result. (Beep with multimeter was tested okay) * Can anyone confirm that the Garmin Gwind Transducer shall be connected to port 5-6-7-8 (Network) and Multi instrument to be set to 76 OFF. Last resort is to some way test the Garmin Gwind transducer is actually working . I have no clue if that only can be tested on another Garmin / Nexus system or that you acutely can measure it with Multimeter ? .

    Tried to make it work today . Unfortunately with out a positive outcome . I would check more if I have any bad connection . my setup Wind Transducer is connected to network pin 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 . with the instruments. 76 OFF Keep you posted.

    I now realize that I forgot to bring down the adapter cable from nexus to garmin together with the trancducer yesterday . But Is it possible to connect 4 cables to the Garmin she connector in order to test it with nexus server or Do I need the adapter ?

    thank you for good explanation jarcher ! Is this the pin setup for Garmin connection (N-WIND) ? - . I need to identify the pin in order to hook them up to the server https://www.gotthardt-yacht.de/_Resources/Persistent/fac764be1a1f9c4217e58f3f823a9666c8197cb8/Windmess_Geber_Steckerbelegung.pdf

    Good . Yes I will try to find something that you recommend and see if the transducer will work on the server before I go up again . C76 would be ON . then and then it would be connected to the same network port as the instrument on the left side 5-6-7-8 . By the way could it be beneficial to have the Garmin GN10 box for anything ? - I have chartplotter with GPS prepared for NMEA 2000 . or can I obtain the same thing connecting the Chartplotter Lawrence Global 8600. directly to in and out put on the server. since the Nexus server can read NMEA 2000.

    Finally . Managed to get hold on a lift this evening. I took down the transducer for closer look . Is this the G-Wind type right. It have then been wrongly connected to the server . In the top it was converter connection to 3 conductor + shield . I looked like a poor connection . I will try to make connection to the server before I connected it to the top again. I dont know how I can do that in a smart way when I don´t have the converter is it possible to improvise .
