The HS5 SeaTalkhs Network Switch works with Raymarine’s latest c-Series and e-Series 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.

Comments about HS5 SeaTalkhs Network Switch:
This is just an ethernet router with unique connectors instead of the RJ45. Probably a little more resistant to water exposure, but not much.
