ST 60 masthead calibration

I recently replaced my old ST50 masthead sensor with the ST60 unit. The wind direction works but the wind speed looks like it is about 30 - 35 % high as read on my ST50 instrument.  This seems to…Continue

"There is no good test of a depth transducer outside the water.  The only way to test would be to confirm you either feel and hear the elements when you power on the instrument.  That will confirm the transducer is getting power.  You…"

Depth instrument

I had a problem with my old st50 depth instrument. I purchased a new i50 depth instrument and would like to install it and test the unit while the boat is out of the water. The transducer is not a through hull. My thought was to fill a bag of water and have it on top of a bucket of water and press it up against the hull. This would allow the bag full of water to be against the hull setting on top of the water in the bucket so the water depth would be about a foot. Will this work? See More

"There isn't a field test, so connecting the existing transducer to the i50 Depth instrument display, if the display shows the correct depth on the display that would confirm a working depth transducer."

"There isn't a field test for a depth transducer.  It can only be tested with a known good display in the field.  Any of the current depth transducers are compatible with the ST50 depth display, but with the ST50 instrument displays…"

depth tranducer for st50 instrument

I had an electrical surge that took out my wind speed/direction that I am going to replace with a 60 transducer and instrument. It also took out my st50 depth indication.  Is there any way to determine if I need to replace the transducer and instrument or just the instrument? My boat is a J42 and does not look like the depth sensor is a through hull, if I need to replace the transducer what the replacement part number?Thanks  See More

Bad Marc - Raymarine.US replied to Kent Nicholas's discussion ST 60 masthead calibration
"You should replace the ST50 display with an i60. The cable is the same. There is no way to calibrate speed with the old ST50 display. However, moving forward, ST60, ST60+, i60 all allow you to calibrate speed. Raymarine does not recommend modifying…"

ST 60 masthead calibration

I recently replaced my old ST50 masthead sensor with the ST60 unit. The wind direction works but the wind speed looks like it is about 30 - 35 % high as read on my ST50 instrument.  This seems to agree with your specs of 0 - 8vdc for the ST60 vs 0 - 5vdc for the ST50.  My question is what size of a resistor should I put in series to correct my indication? Also am I correct that the resistor should go on the yellow lead from the masthead? ThanksSee More
