Mounting location
Choose the mounting locations carefully before you drill or cut. The display should be
mounted so that the operator can easily use the controls and clearly see the display screen.
Be sure to leave a direct path for all of the cables. B&G displays are high-contrast and anti-reflective, and are viewable in direct sunlight, but for best results install the display out of direct
sunlight. The chosen location should have minimal glare from windows or bright objects.
The enclosure that the display is mounted in should be dry and well ventilated. The ventilation of the space behind the unit should be enough to prevent excessive heat build up as a
combined result of radiated heat off the heat sink, and sunlight heating of the enclosure. In
very small enclosures, also subject to heating from the sun, it may be required to fit forced
cooling.
Ensure that any holes cut are in a safe position and will not weaken the boat’s structure. If in
doubt, consult a qualified boat builder.
Before cutting a hole in a panel, make sure that there are no hidden electrical wires or other
parts behind the panel.
Do not mount any part where it can be used as a hand hold, where it might be submerged, or
where it will interfere with the operation, launching or retrieving of the boat.
If bracket mounting the display choose an area where the display will not be subjected to
excessive vibration.
The mounting location will affect the internal GPS receiver. Ensure you test the unit in its
intended location to ensure satisfactory reception. An external GPS source may be added to
overcome poor reception areas.
Leave sufficient clearance space to connect all relevant cables.
For overall width and height requirements, please see the dimensions section on page 53.
 Note: The bracket kit is an optional accessory that needs to be ordered seperately.
! Warning: Poor ventilation combined with a small mounting enclosure could potentially
cause the display to overheat - B&G displays are designed to operate in temperatures from
-15° C to +55° C (+5° F to +131° F).

External GPS
Mounting location
Depending on vessel design and materials, certain mounting locations chosen for the Zeus
Touch may not offer adequate GPS satellite signal reception using the internal receiver. An
external GPS source such as the ZG05 can be used to overcome this, by allowing remote
installation in a location that has an unobscured view of the sky. An NMEA 2000 expansion kit
may be required to connect the GPS antenna to the Zeus Touch, if no other network cabling
is installed.

Echosounder setup
Select echosounder source
Choose the Echosounder source in the Echo Settings . MENU > MENU > ECHO.
This can be selected to be the echosounder built in to the display (Zeus Touch 7 and Zeus
Touch 8 only), or an external sounder module such as the BSM-1.
Deselecting the Network Echosounder option, limits source selection to internal sonar only.
Depth offset
This is a value that can be entered on the Echo Installation page to make depth readings
relate to any point from the water surface, to the deepest point of the vessel.
Below are some typical ways in which the offset is used:
A) For Depth below Keel: Set the distance from transducer to the keel.
Enter a negative value, e.g.
B) For Depth Below Transducer: no offset required.
C) For Depth Below Surface (waterline): Set the distance from transducer to the surface:
Enter a positive value., e.g.
A
B
C
Echosounder software version
For external sounder modules, the software version is displayed under Sonar installation. To
upgrade Sonar software See ‘“Applying Software Updates” on page 51
Water speed calibration (Echosounder transducer)
Water speed calibration is used to adjust the speed value from the paddle wheel to match the
actual boat speed through the water. Actual speed can be determined from GPS speed over
ground (SOG) or by timing the boat over a known distance. Water speed calibration should be
performed in calm conditions, with minimal wind and current movement.
Select Auto correct to match water speed to ground speed (SOG).
Manual calculation. Increase this value above 100% if the paddle wheel is under reading, and
decrease this value if it is overreading, e.g. if the average water speed reads 8.5 knots and SOG
records 10 knots the calibration value needs to be increased to 117%. To calculate the adjustment, divide the SOG by the paddlewheel speed, and multiply the product by 100.
Calibration range: 50-100%. Default is 100%.
24 |
External GPS | Zeus Touch installation manual
Water speed averaging (echosounder transducer)
Averages water speed by measuring your speed at a selected interval of time. Water speed
intervals range from one to thirty seconds, e.g. If you select five seconds, your displayed water
speed will be based on averaging over 5 seconds of sampling.
Calibration range: 1-30 seconds. Default is 1 second.
Water temperature calibration (echosounder transducer)
Temperature calibration is used to adjust the water temperature value from the echosounder
transducer to match the data from another temperature sensor. It may be required to correct
for localised influences to the measured temperature.
Calibration range: -9.9° - +9.9°. Default is 0°.
 Note: Water temperature calibration only appears if the transducer is temperature capable.
Check transducer type selection if this option should be available.
Transducer type
Transducer type is used for selecting the transducer model connected to the echosounder
module. In some transducers with built-in temperature sensors, the temperature reading may

Radar setup
Setup and configuration of the Broadband radar has been simplified compared to traditional
pulse radars. There is no zero range (time delay), no warm up time, and no burn-in required..
Radar status
Scanner type
Identifies the model of scanner connected to the network.
Software version
Check to make sure you have the latest software. check website for the latest version.
Serial Number
This number should be recorded for support and insurance purposes.
MARPA status
The MARPA status can identify if a heading sensor is on the network and that the radar is
receiving heading information essential for MARPA calculations.
Reset device ID
Zeus Touch displays only support one radar on the network. Should a radar be connected,
that has been connected to a dual radar network in the past, it may not be detected by the
display because it has an incorrect Device ID. With the radar connected and power up, select
the Reset Device ID button to resolve this problem.
 Note: This procedure must be performed with only one radar on the network.
Adjust bearing alignment
This is to align with the heading marker on the screen with the center line of the vessel, this
will compensate for any slight misalignment of the scanner during installation. Any inaccuracy will be evident when using MARPA or chart overlay.
Point the boat to be perpendicular to the very end of a breakwater or peninsula. Adjust the
bearing alignment setting, so that the heading marker and land mass intersect.
Adjust antenna height
Set the radar scanner height. The Radar uses this value to calculate the correct STC settings.
Adjust local interference reject
Interference from some onboard sources can interfere with the Broadband radar. One
symptom of this could be a large target on the screen that remains in the same relative
bearing even if the vessel changes direction. Choose from Local interference rejection LOW,
MED or HIGH. Default is LOW
28 |
RADAR | Zeus Touch installation manual
Sidelobe suppression
 Note: This control should only be adjusted by experienced radar users. Target loss in harbour
environments may occur if this control is not adjusted correctly.
Occasionally false target returns can occur
adjacent to strong target returns such as
large ships or container ports. This occurs
because not all of the transmitted radar
energy can be focused into a single beam
by the radar antenna, a small amount
energy is transmitted in other directions.
This energy is referred to as sidelobe
energy and occurs in all radar systems. The
returns caused by sidelobes tend to appear
as arcs:
When the radar is mounted where there are metallic objects near the radar, sidelobe energy
increases because the beam focus is degraded. The increased sidelobe returns can be eliminated using the Sidelobe Suppression control in the Radar installation menu.
By default this control is set to Auto and normally should not need to be adjusted. However
if there is significant metallic clutter around the radar, sidelobe suppression may need to be
increased. The control should be adjusted as follows:
1. Set Radar range to between 1/2 nm to 1 nm and Sidelobe Suppression to Auto.
2. Take the vessel to a location where sidelobe returns are likely to be seen. Typically this would be near a
large ship, container port, or metal bridge
3. Traverse the area until the strongest sidelobe returns are seen.
4. Change Auto sidelobe suppression to OFF then select and adjust the sidelobe suppression control until
the sidelobe returns are just eliminated. You may need to monitor 5-10 radar sweeps to be sure they
have been eliminated.
5. Traverse the area again and readjust if sidelobes returns still occur.
6. Exit the installation menu.
Restore radar to Factory Default
This can be used to revert all user adjustments.

NMEA 0183
To exchange NME0183 data, the Zeus Touch display has a NMEA0183 serial port, providing
both an input and an output.
The port uses the NMEA 0183 (serial balanced) and RS232 (single ended) standards, and can
be configured in the software for different baud rates up to 38,400 baud. NMEA 0183 sentences output by the Zeus Touch can be individually turned on or off.
Refer to “NMEA 0183 supported sentences” on page 62 for a complete list of sentences.

Talkers and Listeners
Do not connect multiple devices outputing data (Talkers) on to the input (Rx) of the Zeus
Touch. The RS232/RS422 standards are not intended for this type of connection, and data will
be corrupted if more than one device transmits simultaneously. The output however may
drive multiple receivers (Listeners). The number of receivers is finite, and depends on the
receiving hardware. Typically three devices is possible.
NMEA 0183 | Zeus Touch installation manual

Serial port setup
NMEA 0183 setup is done from the Network Settings page.
Receive waypoint
Select this option to allow a device capable of creating and exporting waypoints via NMEA
0183 to transfer directly to the Zeus Touch.
Serial communication
This should be set according to correspond with devices connected to the NMEA 0183 input
and output. RS422 is the default setting. The input and output always use the same standard.
Baud rate
Baud Rate is set simultaneously for the input and the ouput, it can not be set at a different
speed for each. It should be set to match the speed of the device connected to it. Most
NMEA 0183 devices send data at 4800 baud.
 Note: AIS transponders typically operate at NMEA0183-HS (high speed), and will require the
baud rate to be set to 38,400
NMEA0183 output
To enable data output, enable the ‘Serial output’ option, and then select which sentences the
Zeus Touch needs to transmit to other devices from the ‘Serial output sentences’ list.
Only a select list of the most commonly used sentences are enabled by default.

NMEA 2000
10
NMEA 2000 device connection
All models of Zeus Touch are equiped with an NMEA 2000 port, which allows the receiving
and sharing of a multitude of data from various sources.
Essential network information
•
•
•
•
•
A NMEA 2000 network consists of a linear “backbone” from which “drop cables” connect to
NMEA 2000 devices
NMEA 2000 cables used for B&G products are of the ‘micro-c’ style, which is a cable/connector specification approved for use in NMEA 2000 certified networks. Some B&G products use
SimNet proprietary connectors, but are compatible via adaptor cables.
A single drop cable has a maximum length of 6 m (20 ft). The total length of all drop cables
combined should not exceed 78m (256 ft)
A NMEA 2000 network has a maximum cable length of 100 m (328 ft), between any two
points
A NMEA 2000 network needs to have a terminator at each end of the backbone. A terminator
can be one of the following:
• a terminator blank plug
• a wind transducer (where the mast cable is one end of the backbone)
Planning and installing a network backbone
The NMEA 2000 backbone needs to run between the locations of all products you want to
install, typically in a bow to stern layout, and be no further than 6 m from a device to be connected.
Choose from the following components to make up your NMEA 2000 backbone:
• Micro-C cables: 0.4 m (1.3 ft), 2 m (6,6 ft), 5 m (16.6 ft), and 9 m (29.5 ft) cables
• Micro-C power cables with or without termination
• T-connector. Use at locations where you want to connect a device by drop cable
 Note: If using a wind sensor, the mast cable should be connected as the final length of cable
in one end of the backbone, as the sensor is fitted with a termination resistor.
 Note Most NMEA 2000 devices can be connected directly to a Simrad SimNet backbone and
SimNet devices can be connected to a NMEA 2000 network by using adapter cables. (see ‘Accessories’ page 57)
 Note: The Zeus Touch has a Micro-C NMEA 2000 connector but is fully compatible to work in
a SimNet network by using an adapter cable.
 Note Triton displays have two connectors, and can either be connected inline with the backbone, or wired individually off a drop cable. Connecting from device to device is known as
‘daisy chaining’ This network topology is not officially NMEA 2000 compliant.
NMEA 2000 | Zeus Touch installation manual
| 33
Power the NMEA 2000 network
A NMEA 2000 network requires its own 12 V DC power supply protected by a 5 amp fuse or
breaker. For 24 V systems, use a DC-DC converter to supply 12 V
Connect power at any location in the backbone for smaller systems.
For larger systems introduce power at central point in the backbone to “balance” the voltage
drop of the network.
 Note: If joining to an existing NMEA 2000 network or similar CAN bus network that already
has it’s own power supply, do not make another power connection.
 Note: Do not connect the NMEA 2000 power cable to the same terminals as the start batteries, Autopilot Computer, Radar, thruster or other high current devices.
The drawing below demonstrates a typical small network. The backbone is entirely made up
of T-piece joiners, which are terminated at each end.

Data bridging
NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000
All supported NMEA 0183 sentences entering the system are internally bridged (converted) to
NMEA 2000, and output via the NMEA 2000 port for any other devices to use. The only exception is AIS data.
NMEA 2000 to NMEA 0183
The NMEA 0183 sentences shown in the ‘Transmit’ rows of the NMEA0183 Supported Sentences table will be generated if the data is available from a NMEA 2000 data source.
Ethernet to NMEA 2000
Limited data is bridged from the Ethernet echosounder: Speed, depth and temperature are
bridged to NMEA 2000 and NMEA0 183.
Multiple Displays
In multi display setups, each display can be used to convert data from a different NMEA 0183
talker, and will be available to any device on NMEA 2000. Each display can be setup for outputting different NMEA 0183 sentences.
 Note: When bridging data from ethernet, a Zeus Touch display has to be nominated to bridge
the data. If this nominated display is turned off, no data will be displayed, until the display is
turned on or another display is selected to bridge the data (see page 36)
 Note: NMEA 0183 to NMEA 2000 bridging only applies to the NMEA 0183 sentences outlined
in the ‘NMEA 0183 Supported Sentences’ section of this manual (see page 62)
 Note: For high speed heading data input in to a radar for MARPA functionality, conversion
should be done via an AT10HD.
NMEA 2000 | Zeus Touch installation manual

NMEA 2000 setup
Setup is required on initial start up of the system, or if any part of the NMEA 2000 network has
been changed or replaced.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
From ‘Network’ in the main system settings menu you can:
select NMEA2000 data sources - either automatically or manually
configure instance numbers for NMEA 2000 devices (where multiple sources of same data
exist)
control how device parameters backlighting, units, damping, and alarms are grouped on the
network
select to share waypoints via NMEA 2000
monitor NMEA 2000 network bus state and reliability
control data damping
calibrate water speed derived from a NMEA 2000 source
Auto Select (Source Selection)
The Auto Select option will look for all sources connected to the Zeus Touch system. If more
than one source is available for each data type, the Zeus Touch will automatically select from
an internal priority list.
Make sure all devices are connected and are turned on before selecting the Auto Select
option.
Manual source selection
Manual selection is generally only required where there is more than one source for the same
data, and the automatically selected source is not the one desired.
Group source selection
B&G products such as the Zeus Touch, Zeus, and Triton Display, have the ability to;
• use data sources (eg position, wind direction, etc) that all other products on the network use,
or alternatively use a data source independently from other units.
• globally change all displays over to a different source from any display. (This will only include
products set to a Group mode.)
In order to enable group selection, the display must be set to ‘Default’ group.
In some cases it may be desired that an Zeus Touch on a network receives the same type of
data, but from different sources to that of the rest of the network devices. To do this set the
data Group setting to None, and select a source for the data.
Advanced source selection
This allows the most flexible and precise manual control over which devices provide data to
the Zeus Touch.
Some data sources, such as those for fuel level, or engine RPM, can only be changed via the
36 |
NMEA 2000 | Zeus Touch installation manual
Advanced menu. Occassionally Auto Select may assign sources incorrectly, which may be
corrected using the Advanced Source Selection. An example of this is where twin installations
with NMEA2000 compliant engines are not programmed with unique instance numbers. This
means that the auto select feature can’t determine which engine is fitted on the port and
which is fitted on the starboard side.
Network Groups
It is also possible to group certain settings so they are duplicated across the network on
multiple displays. Display (ie backlighting), units, damping, and alarms can be grouped either
in ‘Default’ group, or groups ‘1’ through to ‘6’. If any of the settings require discrete control, set
it to ‘none’.

Ethernet (NETWORK port)
The Zeus Touch system uses an Ethernet network to interconnect high bandwidth devices
such as radar, echosounder and to another Zeus Touch, or Zeus display. The Zeus Touch 7 and
Zeus Touch 8 displays have one NETWORK port each, whereas the Zeus Touch 12 has three
Ethernet ports. Navico Ethernet network cables have orange connectors that are retained by a
bayonet type locking collar.
Connecting directly to a single device
The Ethernet port is auto sensing, meaning that the Zeus Touch can connect to one Network
module directly without the use of a cross over cable or switch.

If the number of ethernet devices exceeds the number of available ports on the NEP-2, it is
possible to link two or more NEP-2 modules together to provide the required ports. Every
additional NEP-2 will provide an extra 4 ports, but will use up one port on the NEP-2 it is connected to.

Ethernet setup
No special setup is required for establishing an ethernet network, it is all ‘plug and play’ . An
NEP-2 connected between an Zeus Touch and another network module (e.g. BSM-1) will
automatically start working, and relay data between the two devices.
Diagnostics
The UDB (User Data Base) tab, on the diagnostics page, provides information on Ethernet
activity.
Databases
The upper table gives an account of the various automatically synchronised databases that
ensure B&G display units (Zeus Touch, Zeus, plus Simrad NSS, NSE, and NSO) are all using the
same user settings and data. Each unit stores the database locally, so that all information is
available if the device is run in standalone. Databases can become unsynchronised when one
or more displays in a multi display network are not powered up while other displays are being
operated. Creation of waypoints, routes, tracks, and altering global settings all affect databases. When the tick box ‘Dirty’ is ticked, the unit has identified that it’s database is older than that
of another device on the network. The tickbox should clear within seconds of both devices
being powered up, and the databases synchronising. If it does not clear, it is recommended
that all devices have the power cycled.
IP addresses
The lower table shows the IP address of the display being viewed (top of list), the Master
display (with a tick next to it), and any other displays in a multi display network. The function
of the Master is invisible to the end user - It manages database synchronisation, however this
task automatically shifts to another display if the current master is shut down. The IP address
list only refreshes after all devices on the network have been powered down - a single device
that is shutdown on the network will not be removed from the table shown on other devices.
When powering up a system that has been completely shutdown, a network connectivity
issue can be identified if a display does not show any other IP addresses than it’s own.
The ‘UDB version’ is dependant on the software version installed on the display. It will never
change on it’s own, unlike the ‘Version’ of the Databases on the upper table. It is preferable to
have all USB versions the same. This can usually be acheived by loading the latest software on
to your display (see “Applying Software Updates” on page 51).
Module network light
The network LED on modules such as NEP-2, BSM-1, and RI10, can be useful for determining if
the network is fundamentally operational. No light indicates no connection. A rapidly blinking
green LED means the network module is communicating with another device.

Autopilot
The B&G Zeus Touch includes complete autopilot integration. When Zeus Touch is connected
to a compatible B&G Autopilot Computer (AC12N, AC42N, and SG05), you will have complete
control, setup and integration with your autopilot. The Zeus Touch display can be used in
conjunction with B&G Triton Autopilot Control units or the Zeus Touch can be used alone to
conserve dash space.
Wiring the autopilot system
Using the AC12N or AC42N autopilot computer
The AC12N/AC42N is connected to the Zeus Touch system using the NMEA 2000 network.

Autopilot setup
Verifying the autopilot connection
When an AC12N, AC42N, or SG05 is connected to the Zeus Touch system, the Zeus Touch
will automatically detect the autopilot and an Autopilot menu item will be included in the
Settings menu.
If no Autopilot item is available in the menu, establish the connection by running the auto
select process.
The auto select process may also be used if the list of data sources needs to be updated when
a unit has been physically replaced.
If the AC12N, AC42N or SG05 is later disconnected, the Autopilot menu item will remain available, but only a few of the menu items will be available.
Commissioning the autopilot
When the autopilot installation is completed, the commissioning procedures must be performed. Failure in setting up the autopilot correctly may prohibit the autopilot from functioning properly.
The setup of the autopilot computers (AC12N/42N) can be done in full from either an Zeus
Touch unit or from a Triton Display (if fitted). The following sections describe how you configure the autopilot from the Zeus Touch unit. If you select to setup the system from a Triton
Display, refer to the Triton User manual for further information.
If you connect the Zeus Touch to an already commissioned autopilot system, you only have
to do an automatic source selection as described above before the autopilot is ready to be
used.
Dockside setup
Initiating the required dockside setup is done from within the Commissioning dialog. Completed procedures are labelled with a tick.
When the autopilot computer is delivered from factory AND ANY TIME AFTER AN AUTOPILOT
RESET HAS BEEN PERFORMED, you will have to run a complete setup again.
All steps in all commissioning procedures are clearly described on-screen, and you will be
guided step by step through the process.

3.
•
Press the STBY/AUTO key to ensure that the autopilot is in standby mode
Activate the autopilot commissioning dialog as shown above
Select boat type
The boat type setting is used by the system to select appropriate preset steering parameters.
It will also affect available autopilot features.
4. Perform the rudder calibration
• Used if you have a rudder feedback unit installed. This calibration is used to ensure that the
physical rudder movement corresponds to the rudder angle displayed on the NSO unit.
VRF (Virtual Rudder Feedback) calibration:
• The Virtual Feedback option enables your autopilot to steer without a conventional rudder
feedback unit. This function is designed for vessels up to 40 ft. powered by outboard or stern
drives only.
• The Virtual Feedback option will only be available when there is no feedback unit connected
at first time turn on or at turn on after an autopilot reset.
 Note: Installing a feedback unit will enhance the performance of the autopilot and provide an
accurate rudder angle indicator on the autopilot display. Unless impractical or impossible, a
rudder feedback unit should be installed.
5. Set the drive voltage
• Refer to the drive unit table in the AC12N/AC42N Installation manual or to your drive unit
documentation for information.
6. Run the rudder test as described in the on-screen instructions
42 |
Autopilot | Zeus Touch installation manual
 Note: If the boat uses power assisted steering, it is important that thee
engine or electric motor used to enable the power assist steering is
turned on prior to this test.
•
Stand CLEAR of the wheel and do not attempt to take manual
control of the wheel during this test!
When this test is started the autopilot computer will issue a series of
PORT and STBD rudder commands and automatically verify correct
rudder direction. It detects minimum power to drive the rudder
and reduces the rudder speed if it exceeds the maximum preferred
speed (8°/sec.) for autopilot operation. The system will also detect
whether the drive unit is a reversible motor or if a solenoid valve is
operated.
Rudder drive setup
The rudder drive setup controls how the autopilot computer controls the steering system.
Drive voltage
Voltage specified for your drive unit.
The Drive unit voltage setting does not apply when the system operates solenoids on a continuous running pump/steering gear. Hence, the output voltage to the solenoids will be the
same as the input voltage.
Refer to the drive unit table in the AC12N/AC42N Installation manual or to your drive unit
documentation for information
! Warning: Selection of improper voltage level for your drive unit may damage both the
drive unit and the AC12N/42N even if the protection circuits are activated.
Drive engage
Clutch
Auto
This is the default setting and it allows you to steer the boat with the helm or
wheel when in STBY mode (FU and NFU modes) as well as in all auto steering
modes
This option is typically used to switch between two rudder speeds on a continuous running pump, used when different rudder speeds are required for automatic
and Follow-up/Non-Follow-up steering
Motor output
Shows the amount of power needed to achieve the correct rudder speed. The reading is
obtained from the Rudder test.
The automatically set value may be increased or decreased.
Rudder deadband
This parameter is used to prevent the rudder from hunting. The reading is obtained from the
Rudder test which optimizes the deadband to the speed of the boat and the pressure on the
rudder.
If the auto-setting does not perform properly due to high inertia from the wheel or a loose
steering gear, it can be adjusted manually. Find the lowest possible value that will prevent the
rudder from continuous hunting. A wide deadband will cause inaccurate steering.
 Note: The rudder deadband setting is not available when the autopilot is configured for
Virtual Rudder Feedback.
Seatrials
A seatrial can only be performed if the dockside settings are completed and confirmed.
The seatrial must always be performed in open waters at a safe distance from other traffic.
 Note: You can switch the autopilot to standby mode and take manual control of the boat at
any time during the seatrial by pressing the STBY/AUTO key.

Compass calibration
Before the compass calibration is started, make sure that there is enough open water around
the vessel to make a full turn.
The calibration should be done in calm sea conditions and with minimal wind to obtain good
results. Follow the on-screen instruction, and use about 60-90 seconds to make a full circle.
During the calibration, the compass will measure the magnitude and direction of the local
magnetic field.
• If the local magnetic field is stronger than the earth’s magnetic field (the local field is reading
more than 100%), the compass calibration will fail
• If the local field is reading more than 30%, you should look for any interfering magnetic
objects and remove them, or you should move the compass to a different location. The
(local) field angle will guide you to the local interfering magnetic object.
 Calibration must be made on the compass that is active for the autopilot. If another model
compass from B&G or another manufacturer is installed, refer to the instruction for that compass regarding calibration.
 Note: In certain areas and at high latitudes the local magnetic interference becomes more
significant and heading errors exceeding ±3° may have to be accepted.
Compass mounting offset
After compass calibration, the difference between the compass lubber line and the boat’s
center line should be compensated for.
44 |
Autopilot | Zeus Touch installation manual
LUBBER LINE
Magnitude of local field in
% of earth’s magnetic field.
Direction of local field with
respect to lubber line. It can
also be on the reciprocal.
1. Find the bearing from the boat position to a visible object. Use a chart or a chart plotter
2. Steer the boat so that the center line of the boat is aligned with the bearing line pointing towards the
object
3. Change the offset parameter so that the bearing to the object and the compass readout becomes
equal. Refer graphic above
 Note: Make sure that both the compass heading and the bearing to the object have the same
unit (°M or °T).
Setting the Transition speed (HI/LO)
This is the speed at which the system automatically changes from LO to HI steering parameters.
On power boats it is recommended that you set a value that
represents the speed where the hull begins to plane or the
speed where you change from slow to cruising speed.
On sailboats the transition speed should be set to 3-4 knots to
give the best response in a tack.
A deadband of 2 knots is incorporated to prevent oscillation of
HI/LO settings when vessel is travelling at the transition speed.

Autotuning
The autotune feature will run the boat through several tests and then automatically set the
most important steering parameters.
Autotune is not required for the autopilot to function as it is preset with steering parameters
that should suit most boats in the 30-50 foot range.
You can manually set all parameters that are set during autotuning. Refer next page.
Seastate filter
The Seastate filter is used to reduce rudder activity and autopilot sensitivity in rough weather.
OFF
Seastate filter is disabled. This is default
AUTO
Reduces rudder activity and autopilot sensitivity in rough weather by an
adaptive process. The AUTO setting is recommended if you want to use the
seastate filter
MANUAL
Linked to the steering response control settings described previously. It may
be used to manually find the optimum combination of course keeping and
low rudder activity in rough but steady sea conditions
Setting sailing parameters
 Note: Sailing parameter settings are only available if the boat type is set to Sail.
Tack time
When performing a tack in WIND mode, the rate of turn (tack time) can be adjusted. This will
give single-handed sailors time to handle the boat and the sails during a tack.
A turn performed without shifting wind side, will also be made at a controlled turn rate.

Wind function
With wind function set to Auto, the autopilot will automatically
select between apparent and true wind steering. Auto is default aand
nd
d
recommended for cruising.
When the boat is running or on a broad reach, there is a heightened
ned
d
chance it will surf on the waves. This may lead to significant changes
ges
in boat speed, and thereby changes in apparent wind angle. True
wind steering is therefore used to prevent undesired corrections by
by
the autopilot when heading downwind (or close to), while steering
ng
to apparent wind is used when beating or reaching.
Apparent wind steering is preferred when you want to maintain
maximum boat speed without continuous trimming of the sails.
VMG optimizing
You can optimize the VMG to wind. When selected the function will be active for 5–10
minutes after a new wind angle has been set and only when beating.
Layline steering
Layline steering is useful when navigating. Cross Track Error (XTE) from the navigator will keep
the boat on the track line. If the XTE from the navigator exceeds 0.15 nm, the autopilot will
calculate the layline and track towards the waypoint.
46 |
Autopilot | Zeus Touch installation manual
Manually adjusting steering parameters
The autotune function in the autopilot is so refined that the majority of boats will need no
further adjustments of the steering parameters. On some boats however, or in particular
sea conditions, fine tuning of the steering parameters may improve the performance of the
autopilot.
Transition speed
Refer previous description.
Rudder
This parameter determines the ratio between commanded rudder and the heading error. The
higher rudder value the more rudder is applied.
If the value is too small it will take a long time to compensate for a heading error, and the
autopilot will fail to keep a steady course.
If the value is set too high the overshoot will increase and the steering will be unstable.
Counter rudder
Counter rudder is the amount of rudder used to try to prevent the boat from yawing around
the set course. Higher counter rudder settings result in more rudder being applied.
The best way of checking the value of the Counter rudder setting is when making turns.
The figures illustrate the effects of various Counter Rudder settings;
A: Counter rudder too low; overshoot response
B: Counter rudder too high; sluggish and creeping response
C: Correct setting or counter rudder; ideal response
A
B
C
Auto trim
This parameter defines how fast the autopilot shall correspond after having registered a
heading error.
The standard value is 40 seconds which should work well on most boats. Rule of thumb: Set
to same value (seconds) as the boat’s length in feet. On boats operating on VRF the value
should be set to 20 seconds.
Rate limit
Sets the maximum allowed rate of turn.
The value should be kept at 6.0°/second unless there is a need for more rapid response in
turns.
Minimum rudder
This parameter filters small rudder commands to prevent high rudder activity.
Some boats may have a tendency to not respond to small rudder commands around the
“course keeping” position because of a small rudder, a rudder deadband, whirls/disturbance of
the water-stream passing the rudder or it is a single nozzle water jet boat.
By increasing the Minimum rudder parameter you may improve the course keeping performance on some boats. This will however increase the rudder activity.
Minimum wind angle to port and starboard
These parameters should be set identical to the minimum apparent wind angle that will keep
the sails well shaped and give an acceptable thrust. The parameters will vary from boat to
boat.
The settings are used for the tack-prevent function. They also applies when the autopilot is
operating in WindNAV mode. Refer to the Operating the autopilot section.
You can select different minimum wind angles for port and starboard. The difference between
Autopilot | Zeus Touch installation manual
| 47
port and starboard will be taken into account when calculating the Distance To Turn (DTT).
Navigation change limit
This parameter defines the maximum course change where the autopilot is allowed to automatically change the course when the Zeus Touch follows a route (NAV steering).
If the required course change to next waypoint in a route is more than the set limit, you are
prompted to verify that the upcoming course change is acceptable.

CZone connection to NMEA 2000
When interfacing to C-Zone network it is recommended to use a BEP Network interface
bridge (A) to join the two network backbones together.
The CZONE / NMEA2000 Network interface bridge isolates the power of the two networks,
but allows data to be freely shared between both sides.
The Network Interface has built in terminators so needs to be placed at the extremity of each
network backbone.
The Interface Bridge can also be used for expansion of the B&G network, when the maximum
node limit (node = any device connected to the network) for the network has been reached
or the maximum cable length of 150m will be exceeded. Once an Interface Bridge has been
fitted, a further 40 nodes and additional cable length can be added.
The Network Interface is available from your BEP dealer. For more information please refer to
the BEP web site www.bepmarine.com.
BEP part number 80-911-0057-00
A SimNet to Micro-C cable (24006413 ) is required to connect to a SimNet network.

CZone setup
In order to communicate with the CZone modules connected to the network, the Zeus Touch
display must be assigned a unique CZone Display Dipswitch setting.
The functionality of the CZone system is determined by the CZone Config File (.zcf ), which is
stored on all CZone modules, and supported B&G displays such as the Zeus Touch. The file is
created using the CZone Configuration Tool, a specialised PC application available from BEP
Marine Ltd, and associated CZone distributors.
The Zeus Touch system provides a means to load the Config file, as well as apply updates to
module firmware, removing the need to take a laptop computer aboard the vessel.
Enabling CZone functionality
Once CZone is enabled, an addtional CZone menu icon appears on the Settings page.
Assigning the dipswitch setting
Every B&G product capable of controlling and viewing CZone devices must be assigned a
virtual dipswitch setting. This setting is unique for each device. On the Zeus Touch this can
be set in the CZone menu on the Settings page. Typically it is set after the config file already
exists on the CZone system, but it may also be set in advance.
When the config is already available on the network, it will immediately commence uploading to the Zeus Touch once the dipswitch is set. Allow this to complete, without interruption.
Setting CZone to display at startup
With this option selected, the CZone control page will be shown first, every time the Zeus
Touch is powered up.
CZone backlight control
Enabling this will cause the Zeus Touch to synchronize it’s backlight setting with that of any
CZone Display Interfaces set up to share backlight settings.
Import and backup a config file
The files page may be used to import CZone config files, or export a copy to a Micro SD
card. Importing will overwright the existing file on the Zeus Touch and all connected CZone
devices.
For further information refer to ‘“Applying Software Updates” on page 51
Upgrading module firmware
The files page also allows the loading of CZone module firmware updates. For further information refer to ‘“Applying Software Updates” on page 51

Applying Software Updates
14
From time to time B&G releases software updates to it’s existing products. Updates are created
for a variety of reasons; to add or improve features, to add support for new external devices, or
to fix software bugs.
Updates can be found on the B&G website: http://www.bandg.com/Support/Downloads/
The Zeus Touch may be used to apply software updates to itself, and to external NMEA 2000
and CZone devices, with files read off a Micro SD card.
Before initiating an update to the Zeus Touch itself, be sure to back up any potentially
valuable user data.
Backing up user data
There are two files that can be backed up that relate to user changes:
• Waypoints Routes and Tracks
• Settings (includes preferences such as unit settings, and custom new pages)
The backup procedure is similar for both.
The file formats for waypoint backup:
• User data file version 4: Use with current Navico MFDs (Zeus Touch, Zeus, NSS, NSE). Offers
most detail
•
•
•
•
User data file version 3 (with depth): Use with legacy Lowrance GPS chartplotters
User data file version 2 (no depth): Use with legacy Lowrance GPS chartplotters
GPX (GPS Exchange): Use with some other manufacturers’ GPS products, and PC applications
Northstar .dat (no Tracks): Use with legacy Northstar chartplotters
The Serial port option outputs the waypoints over NMEA 0183. The receiving GPS/PC will typically need to be set to allow import of waypoints.
If the Zeus Touch is defaulted, or user data is accidentally deleted, simply return to the files
page, highlight the backup file, and select Import. View file details for creation date.
Zeus Touch software updates
The update file must be loaded to the root directory of the SD card.
In the files menu, locate the update file on the SD card and select Upgrade. Accept the
prompt to reboot the unit, and wait a few moments as the unit restarts. After a few seconds
the unit will display something similar to the following image:
Select update to run
* 0: Cancel
1: “Zeus_Touch-xxxx.upd”
Turn the rotary knob so that the asterix appears next to the update file. Press the rotary knob
to commence update. Do not remove the Micro SD card or disconnect the power to the Zeus
Touch unit until the process has completed (this will typically take no more than a couple of
minutes).

NMEA 2000 and Ethernet device updates
To update B&G/NAVICO NMEA 2000 and ethernet devices select the Upgrade option
presented when the file is highlighted, followed by confirmation of the device you wish to
upgrade. Do not interrupt the upgrade process.
Touch Screen Calibration
