Description

NMEA2000 - Drop / Backbone Cables - Wema uses NMEA2000 Micro connectors on cables and connectors which are universal and compatible with other manufacturer's NMEA2000 products.

The cable has large 18 AWG power conductors to minimise the risk of voltage drop and provide better reliability to the NMEA 2000 network.

These cables are used for connection between an NMEA2000 device and T-connector, so called drop cable, or as a trunk/backbone cable between the T-connectors.

Each drop cable is limited to 6 meters maximum length and totally 78 meters maximum length of all drop cables in the network.

The maximum length of the backbone is 100 meters.

These cables are available in five lengths from 0.5 meter to 6 meters.

The backbone cables are also available as 8 and 10 meters.


Specifications

  • Large flexible 18 AWG power conductors to minimise the risk of voltage drop.
  • NMEA2000 network standard, compatible with other manufacturer's NMEA2000 products.
  • Waterproof rating IP68

NMEA 2k - Drop / Backbone Cables Wiring - Wema UK

To supply a replacement fuel or water sender we just need to know:

OR

  • What is the Wema product code?

If your sender has information stamped on the head then we can identify your sender from the product code:

 Identifying a Wema sender

[Please note: the code 001300 refers to the S3 head and the code 001306 / 001305 refers to the S5 sender head]

 

Do you have an S3 or S5 sender?

The S3 has a screw in head with a 1.25" BSP thread like this:

[NOTE: A 1.25" BSP (British Standard Pipe) thread will actually measure larger than 1.25 inches when measured with a tape measure.  This is because a BSP measurement refers to the internal bore of a pipe (for accurate flow rate) and not the outside of the thread.] 

Wema S3 sender head

The S5 has a bolt down head with 5 holes like this:


Wema S5 sender head

 

[NOTE: The 5-hole drill pattern in the top of an S5 sender head is a standard SAE-5-hole pattern.] 

 

If you have a sender that is not an S3 or S5 then please click here

 

What resistance is your current sender and gauge?

The sender and gauge must have the same resistance values or the gauge will read incorrectly.

You can either test the gauge or the sender to find this out.

 

To test the sender:

  • Disconnect the two wires on top of the sender.

  • Remove the sender from the tank.

  • Connect the wires on the sender to a multimeter. 

  • Set the multimeter to resistance [Ω ohms]

    How to test a sender - Wema

  • Move the float to the top of the sender and take a reading on the multimeter:

    • At the top of the sender (full) the resistance should be:

      • European specification - 190 ohms

      • American specification - 30 ohms

  • Move the float to the bottom of the sender and take a second reading:

    • At the bottom of the sender (empty) the resistance should be:

      • European specification - 0 ohms

      • American specification - 240 ohms 

To test the gauge:

 If you have access to the wires on the back of the gauge;

  • Power the gauge off

  • Disconnect the black wire (sender) 

  • Power the gauge on

  • If it's an American gauge the needle will show EMPTY

    • Touch the black wire to earth, the needle will go to FULL

  • If it's a European gauge the needle will show FULL

    • Touch the black wire to earth, the needle will go to EMPTY

If you don't have access to the back of the gauge;

  • Disconnect the two wires in the loom that attach to the sender.

    • If it's an American gauge the needle will show EMPTY

    • If it's a European gauge the needle will show FULL

Length?

To measure an S3 or S3H sender (with screw in head) measure from the top of the thread to the bottom of the stem.

How to measure Wema S3 sender

To measure an S5 sender (with bolt down head) measure from the underside of the flange to the bottom of the stem

 How to measure Wema S5 sender

  

How many wires?

If your S5 or S3 sender has 2 wires then it is a standard resistance sender.

If your S5 or S3 sender has 3 or 4 wires then it is either a 0-5v, 0-10v sender or it has a high/low level alarm.

If you have a 3 or 4 wire sender then please contact us before ordering.

If your sender has a high or low level alarm we will need to know if the switch is normally off (when the tank is empty), turning on when the tank is full or normally on, turning off when the tank is full.  We will also need to know how far from the top or bottom of the sender you would like the alarm switch to be.

 

Tank Contents?

For fuel or water then you can fit the maximum length of sender for your tank.

For a black water holding tank we recommend leaving at least 50mm from the bottom of the tank regardless of the material the tank is made from.

If you tank does not contain fuel, fresh water, grey water or black water then please contact us for more specific information.  For very thick liquids like oil or grease we may need to know the viscosity.
