Question about Furuno NavPilot 511 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My furuno autopilot 511 has a rudder reference unit which worked and then stopped displaying rudder position. I assumed it broke and replaced it. I still get no display. How can I clear the unit. I had a noise problem on my Furuno GPS and think it is similar.

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

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.

Which drive are you using with the AP24, is it just a hydraulic pump on a powerboat, like our RPU80, or is it a hydraulic linear drive (like our HLD-2000) or draglink drive (like our DD-15) on a sailboat?

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?

Autopilot shows "no rudref"


The rudder sensor works like a light dimmer, so you get 5V and ground on the outside two connections and a varying voltage between about 1 and 4 volts depending on rudder position

Linear rudder refernce Furuno 500 auto pilot will not pass test?


light on board is probably normal no, this is an inductive pickup, can not test with ohmeter, sorry. Test with display, observing rudder angle display. Do rudder setup repeatedly until it works, it is a little fussy for placement and clearance but patience and the correct "bracketry" will make this pilot perform great.

The linear drive should have an adjustment screw on the arm so that it can be adjusted to show when the rudders are central. you will need to centre upm the rudders then loosen the screw and adjust until the guage shows the centre position. May take some fiddling to get right cause sometimes when you centre it the guage won't read correctly in the port or starbord directions (won't go all the way over). May need to re-position the whole unit.

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 :
AP35 Autopilot Instruction Manualto troubleshoot the error, if you cannot get rid of the error message you may have to replace the rudder feedback unit or to have the unit inspected by a technician.
