Re: Shield Wire in NMEA 2000 Backbone

Thanks for the information.  I'll ground the power tap for the N2K to the battery negative.

I also noticed while taking the old wiring out, there were some shielded cables, and some unshielded cables, usually for power supplies.  Those were never grounded and I wondered what the point was of using shielded cables without grounding them.  

The new wire I bought for power cabling is shielded, should it be grounded as well?
