Hi:

The Beneteau Oceanis 361 2001  Tridata ST60 suddenly shows 00, and when reset shows Max Speed 00 and even 6.1.

Other readings of SPEED section are 00.

Depth etc OK.

Checked the paddle and was completely clean.

 

My Westerbeke B30 Tachometer is also out - is this related?

 

Can anyone give me some idea>

 

Thanks.

What display is the transducer connected to, the ST60 or the B30?  I have enclosed a test for the speed transducer if the transducer is connected to the ST60.

Testing the Speed Sensor:

Verify that the transducer’s paddle wheel is free of marine growth and rotates freely on its shaft
Power down the instrument
Disconnect the GREEN and SHIELD transducer leads from the instrument display or instrument pod.
Connect a multimeter to the GREEN and SHIELD transducer leads and configure the multimeter to measure continuity or resistance.
Slowly rotate the transducer paddle wheel by hand. Note that as the paddlewheel is rotated, the multimeter should alternate between an open circuit and a closed circuit with each quarter turn. As such one complete revolution of the paddle wheel should open and close the circuit four times.

Should the multimeter respond as indicated above, then the speed sensor element of the transducer would be deemed functional. If not, then the transducer has failed and should be replaced.


Thanks for this info.

After NOT working for 2 weeks, today on a 3hrs' sail the Speed on the ST60 suddenly came on and was GOOD for the rest of the trip.

Can you say why does this happened?

This happened about 6 weeks ago too.

Thanks again.

Len

I would think it would be loose connections somewhere in the system, check all connections are secure behind the display.

"I appreciate that thank you. My suggestion for a future software upgrade would be to simply reinstate the option for a visible safe zone ring, then you could leave the guard zone as presently configured in V15.61. Thanks for looking into this."

"Actually the ST800-p120 has both Speed and Temperature wires, the Brown and White are the temp wires.  So you would just connect the Red, Green and Bare to the appropriate colors on the ST30 display."

Transducer Connection for Autohelm ST30 Bidata

I have an Autohelm ST30 Bidata depth and knot meter.  After the transducer stopped working I purchased an ST800-p120 speed/temp transducer (Raymarine Part No: E26031, made by Airmar).  There are 5 wires coming from the transducer: red, green, white, brown and bare.  On the back of my ST30 Bidata (on the knotmeter side) there are three terminals for attaching the transducer: red, green and gray.  My question:  How do I connect the transducer to the knot meter?  Which wire goes where?Thanks.Bob…See More

Need to Replace RL70 Radar

Hello Raymarine;I have a RL70 radar unit, purchased in 2002, that has a "burned" screen, on my Nelson/Marek 45 sailboat (dome is mounted on mast). I'm selling the boat and debating if I should replace the radar unit. I see used RL70Cs on sale on Ebay; can I replace my black/white RL70 with a color RL70C - i.e. will all the connections fit and the dome be compatible? See More

P70R Auto Pilot Commissioning Problem

My old Raytheon ST400 auto pilot failed me on my sail from Los Angeles to Ensenada. I was able to get a car to the West Marine store in San Diego and bring back a new system (T70153, incl, P70R head, ACU 100, a digital compass and drive arm for my tiller. Problem is my compass calibration repeatedly fails.I begin the process, get a circle displayed on the screen,  and within a few seconds the head notes that the calibration is complete, deviation 188 deg., failed. I have tried to simply use the…See More
