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.

Evolution Autopilot setup

I installed an Evolution autopilot on my 21' Ranger Tug. This is a semi-displacement hull. Cruise speed 6.5 mph. Displacement about 3,500 pounds. It has mechanical steering and I am using the Raymarine drive on the steering wheel. When "going to the cursor" or "going to a waypoint" the boat will initially veer off about 30 degrees to starboard of the course then slowly go to about 15 degrees to port then will slowly come on course. Total time may be about 2 minutes. Once on course it stays on…See More

EV-100 wheel autopilot installation: electrical issues

I am about to install a basic EV-100 wheel autopilot on my Ericson 34 sailboat.  I will not connect any additional SeaTalk equipment and I will not have a rudder position sensor.  My understanding is that I have to provide two sources of 12V power: to the SeaTalk backbone (maximum of 5A) and to the ACU-100 (maximum of 10A).  My questions are:Can the two sources of power (circuit breakers) be turned on simultaneously, for example, with a pair of ganged breakers?  Or does the backbone need to…See More

Need connecting arm for ST6001 rudder position sensor

I have an ST6001 autopilot on my 35' sailboat. Installed in 2005. I need a replacement for all or part of the connecting arm for the rudder position sensor.One of the plastic end sockets was damaged recently when a boatyard re-installed the steering quadrant improperly - the quadrant hit the connecting arm when the wheel was turned, causing it to pop off the socket on the sensor.Can anyone tell me the part number and how to order one?

ST 2000 auto pilot instalation

I am installing a newly purchased ST 2000 and want to tie it into my ray marine instrument package.  The instrument system is your standard 3 display Speed, Depth, Wind (each instrument is independent) the system was new about 4-5 years ago.   Here is my question what style cable connector do I need to tie into this era instrument package.  (current connections are all sealed up behind a well caulked cover and it would be great to only have to tear it apart one time for the final install.)  See More

ACU-400 No Longer seen on SeaTalkNG Bus

I have a 46 Hunter sailboat.I upgraded my system a year ago to all the latest Raymarine electronics.  Worked fine for a year. Now my EV-1/ACU-400 Autopilot doesn't work.  Specifically, I get a "No Drive Detected" error message when I try to engage my autopilot.  Further diagnoses reveals that the ACU-400 no longer appears on the i70 Setup->Diagnostics->About System list of devices.  Nor does it appear on my MFD e125 Setup->Maintenance->Diagnostics->Select Device list of devices.…See More
