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.

Transducer compatability

 I was all set to purchase an A78 with Navionics Platinum and the  CPT 120 bronze  thru- hull transducer.I've decided to go with the new A98. The catalog says the CPT 120 transducer only works with A68 and A78. I'm assuming this is simply because the information has not been updated yet?  Could someone confirm?ThanksSee More

ST 6001 Autohelm Autopilot

I have the above autopilot and I have not changed a thing other than a 'regulator' which caused the battery power to fail. The autopilot turns on to 'standby' and when engaged to auto says "pow mot swapped" I have not changed any wires to the autopilot computer or batteries. Is there a reset? Or what do I do?

Issue in Radio License in Canada

Hi There,We purchased a British registered yacht with a C-80 Raymarine radar/chartplotter/gps and I am trying to register the radios in Canada. Industry Canada has asked me what model of C-80 I have looked on their site and they have different approval numbers for C-80 models 2D  4D  5S  7S  9S  11S. There is nothing in my documentation that gives me any information other than simply C-80,  Can you help me with this? How do I know which one we have, it was purchased in 2008.  Thanks RobertSee More

Connecting two GPS inputs to an S1 autopilot

I am re-wiring my electronics and planning on running two separate GPS/chartplotters interfaced with my Raymarine S1 autopilot.  One is a Raymarine C80 and one is a Garmin 3210.  I plan on inputting the Garmin GPS NEMA stream though the NMEA input on the course computer.  The E80 will be input through one of the Seatalk ports on the computer.  I will have two ST6000  controllers attached in parallel to the other Seatalk input.Will the  S1 computer have a problem with the two GPS streams?  I…See More

Unjoin or disable Autonetwork betwen RaceMaster and NM-100 system

I have a set of Tacktick wireless MN-100's with wind, speed and depth, along with a Race Master compass, I recently "joined" the Race Master with the MN-100 displays. I prefer to keep the Race Master independent of the wireless system. I have tried to un-"join" without success, I have done a reset of both systems, no change.When I get the Race Master out of range of the wireless system it functions normally, bring it within range of the wireless system and it becomes a repeater, and I lose the…See More

Ascertaining bona fide of ray marine installers

HiI am doing our due diligence with 2 people that say they are certified ray marine installers, repairers/technicians.I am needing a lot of work completed and for the purpose of warranty claims in the future would like to know it is being installed by people who claim they are what they say they are. Is there a number or email i can send information to and find out if these two competitors are exactly as they say and not trying to "one up" each other to win the work.Any help is appreciatedSee More

SPX-5 additional earth connection?

Hello,I have just been fitting a new SPX-5 autopilot computer to drive my Raymarine wheel pilot.The SPX-5 is connected to Seatalk, the flux-gate compass, and to the boats +12vDC supply, all of which have their own connections to the boat's earth.So why do the SPX-5 instructions stipulate that the unit itself should have a separate earth?I have not yet connected this, and the system appears to work satisfactorily - so do I really need this separate earth connection?See More
