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.

Underway - Raymarine, US replied to colin williams's discussion ST 6000+ no beep but flashes its name but won't go into standby.
"Yes, the voltage on Seatalk is good, so the ST6000 should boot up and beep then go to Standby.  I would come to the same conclusion that there is an issue within the ST6000 control head."

New Install of an 18" HD Radome on a Center Console Fiberglass T Top

I plan to mount the new 18" radome to the fiberglass TTop just forward of the radio box that is located on the underside of the solid T Top. The four bolts will be accessable forward of the radio box ander the top but not inside the radio box. My problem is that I connected the cable to the connector with the radome in the house sitting on the floor. The cable comes out at an angle and sort of hits the floor very close to the back of the radome. How do I get the cable thru the fiberglass top…See More

MFD map distance rings

Hi,No matter how much US-based boating I get around to do, I remain a metric guy. That's why I've set my e127 MFDs to the metric unit for depths, which works fine. Now, please have a look at the attached screen dump.For range/distance I prefer the nautical mile as the standard unit. This normally works fine, but when zooming in the display will revert to FEET. Yikes! FEET! OK, divide by 3 or so - but hey, that's what we have processing power for. For the really close-up zoom levels I'd like to…See More
