Question about Raymarine Smartpilot Autopilot St6002 S1g Hydraulic Inboard Pack

Open Question

Autohelm faults The rudder reference bar has disappeared from the display in Standby. Have replaced the rudder reference unit but no change. The old reference unit has discontinuity so obviously faulty. The new unit has continuity but has made no difference. The helm works in Auto unless it needs large corrections then it seems to lose track of the rudder and starts to shunt.

SOURCE: Trying to calibrate smartpilot, and controller

It sounds like the rudder feedback has a dead spot in the center of it. The replacement part numbers:

Rotary (inboard engines): M81105
Linear (outboard engines): M81188

Drive unit error navpilot 511


That errors means the autopilot is trying to move the rudder but it thinks its not moving. If you can manually move the rudder in standby mode with the green or red buttons on the 511, then the problem is typically with the rudder feedback unit. i.e. the rudder is moving but the only way the pilot knows it is if the signal changes from the rudder feedback unit.

If you can't make the pump work with the arrows (or anything else) then the problem lies with the pump. Check 12VDC to the pump and the connection to the processor.

Rudder reference unit


Hi, the first thing I would do is check the wiring from the course computer to the feedback, on both ends and also check the rudder feedback mechanical link to the rudder.
It is possible that the problem is in the course computer but a problem with the feedback wiring or the feedback itself is much more likely. If the wiring looks ok and the mechanical connection looks ok, I would then check the feedback potentiometer to make sure it moves smoothly when the rudder moves. You can check it with an ohm meter. Depending on what it reads, you can then replaces the feedback or do further troubleshooting. The feedback is a just a 5k ohm potentiometer. Here are instruction on how to test a potentiometer.
95% of the time, problems like this are problems related to the feedback and not the course computer. I don't know if there is a reset for the computer, I would have to call the factory and ask, the manuals don't mention it. If it turns out that you do need a new feedback, I just so happen to have a new one in my shop.

Check if rudder reference unit is installed as before ,it seems that the pilot sense that the rudder is turning the wrong way. check when giving +10 command the
rudder turns to increase the heading,if yes, it could be the wiring of the rudder reference unit or it was installed the wrong way after service on the rudder.
Is rudder position indicating correctly?

the rudder setup needs to be done. follow prompts, very common to be screwed up, read directions carefully and make sure that if it says steer hard starboard, it is hard starboard before you proceed! 847-746-0100

Yep, if rudder calibration values are OK, then there is a real problem with calibration, it can be a mechanical problem or a faulty rudder feedback unit. Follow procedure at page 93 of user manual :
