St60 wind instrument

We are having problem with st60 wind display,the wind speed is not functioning(brand new)
the apparent wind reading is always zero,the analog pointer works and tell the direction of the wind but no apparent wind speed is shown

we check the wire from the transducer up to the back of the display as follow

used shield as reference

blue= 4.2 vdc
green= 3.0 vdc
yellow=7.8 vdc
red= 8 vdc

as we know the yellow wire is for the wind speed signal and varrying.....

pls tell us what is the problem with the display its brand new and are we missing something?

firmware version is 7.03

Re: st60 wind instrument

You might want to double check that all of the spade connectors that are used to plug the wind transducer into the ST60 wind display are firmly plugged onto the display's terminals.

Because of the blind connection, sometimes the terminal ends up lodged between the red insulator and the spade, rather than within the spade connector itself. This results in intermittent or missing readings from one part of the sensor or more.

Also make sure the display is in Master mode. You will need to get into its setup mode to confirm this. The other possible mode is repeater, which would be used if this were a secondary readout.

I have the C80 system networked thru the E55058 SeaTalk. After sitting for a month without being used it now will not boot...message on AutoPilot screen reads "STLK failed" and I cannot get any fix or...

Hi, well in my professional opinion with what i call "Mission critical" devices, you should NEVER EVER take chances. If it has failed now, then when you are half way across the Indian Ocean it may fail again. Your life may very well depend on an instrument like this. If it were me.. I would spare NO expense and simply replace it. I would never ever trust a Repaired device, I am speaking from 35 years of experience. Replace it now.

Wind instruments only display 3 dashs .we refitted the mast fitting and it worked for awhile then stopped.

Hi Paul!

Seeing as how you only performed ONE refit, it SHOULD be easy to trace the problem. I'm thinking the ground is faulty as the unit seems to have power to it judging from the three dashes visible that you mention.

Hopefully it WON'T be the connection at the top of the mast, but you know Murphy's Law.

Hope this is of help to you.

Good Luck!

Frozen map screen

Try purchasing a new SD memory card (brand name) and installing the files there. Sometimes the manufacture sends cheap SD cards and the data is easily lost in damaged or poorly made SD cards. I have a EVESHAM 2007 and installed the files from the original CDto a new SD card and solved freezing and other problems resulting from poor data transmission from the cheap SD.

Also, try going online to the manufactureer's web site to see if they have downloads/ updates available there to replace the origianl install files that came with the unit. Always put on new brand new SD card.

Hope this helps

Wiring of seatalk instruments

OK, you are confused. Seatalk is a bus system, using 3 wires , (power +, power-, and Data.) red, bare and yellow repectively. So Red and Bare are 12V and ground. Since the 125 shows a green light, it is getting power and outputting data. but is it seatalk?? to make a 125 Seatalk, you must hook red and green together to 12 V, so check that first. if green is grounded or not connected, that is the problem (or one of them)
Next divide system to its' simplest terms, so hook the GPS straight to the display ST60, and see if it works red to rd, yell to yell and bare to bare (sometimes black) One by one hook the others into the chain until they all work or failed device takes down Seatalk network. If you are missing 12V on a seatalk leg, check 5A fuse in course computer. If you have a pilot, you have a course computer, unless it is ST4000 wheel pilot, and then the brain is the display (course computer is built in to ST4000 display)

Sea talk failure

Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry

Raymarine Compatability

Yes. The shorty transducers that normally ship with the ST40 series instruments should be interchangeable with longer stem ST60 series ducers.

Log and trip function not registering

It is unlikely the problem is in the A65 screen.....most likely it is an issue with the paddlewheel itself, its circuit in the depth/speed transducer, or least likely, in the DSM25 sounder module.

Both the log and the trip functiions are read from the paddle-wheel sensor of the connected DSM25 sounder module and transducer.

1. Make sure you have a DSM25 sounder module and transducer with a paddle wheel (the A65 is available without the DSM25 option.)

Double check the connections between the DSM25 and the A65, as well as the transducer connection to the A65. There is an indicator light on the DSM25 to confirm it is on.

2. Make sure the paddle wheel turns freely. They tend to get fouled easily with debris and growth.

3. Make sure the A65 is giving to a reading for SPEED when underway or when having a buddy spin the paddlewheel by hand. Do not confuse SPEED with SOG. SPEED is from the paddlewheel.....SOG (Speed over ground) comes from your GPS sensor and is not used by A65 for log or trip purposes.

If you get npo speed reading at all the paddle wheel may be defective or the depth/speed transducer may be defective. See your dealer about a replacement.
