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.

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

Anyone have suggestions about what's wrong, or further troubleshooting suggestions?                                                     Joe BSee More

Detach a steering wheel equipped with EV-100?

Hello,I would like to install the EV-100 Wheel autopilot on my 30' sailboat.  My question is whether the steering wheel can easily be detached after installation and stored out of the way when not in use.  My cockpit is small and when anchored or moored we remove the wheel to allow easier movement around the cockpit.  I have gotten two conflicting answers from sales reps at boat shows regarding the ease of removal.  Is it a matter of just undoing a cable or does the removal involve unscrewing…See More

C-Widescreen and E-Widescreen on Same HS Network?

I want to add backup and lower helm MFD displays to my current system: E-140-Widescreen, DSM-300 sounder, and RD424HD radome system, all talking to each other through a HS Switch.Can I add one or two C-series Widescreens (90, or 120 or 140) to this system and share everything?  The more I read about HS, the more I think it would work, but the manuals for both the C-series Widescreens and the E-series-Widescreens don't address this and only talk about networking with their own kind.For a backup…See More

"Mark, It's a pretty safe assumption that if the SeaTalk to SeaTalkng Converter has a 2015 date stamp on it, that it has v1.21 software within it."
