Warnings and cautions
WARNING: Product installation and operation
This equipment must be installed, commissioned and operated in accordance with the Raymarine instructions provided.
Failure to do so could result in personal injury, damage to your
boat and/or poor product performance. Before you install the
ST70 autopilot controller, check that individual components
are the correct voltage for your boat’s supply.
WARNING: Electrical safety
Make sure you have switched off the power supply before you
start installing this product.
WARNING: Navigational safety
Although we have designed this product to be accurate and
reliable, many factors can affect its performance. Therefore, it
should serve only as an aid to navigation and should never
replace commonsense and navigational judgement. Always
maintain a permanent watch so you can respond to situations
as they develop.
As correct performance of the boat’s steering is critical for safety, we STRONGLY
RECOMMEND that an Authorized Raymarine Service Representative fits this
product. You will only receive full warranty benefits if you can show that an Authorized
Raymarine Service Representative has installed or commissioned this product.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) conformance
Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to the appropriate Electromagnetic
Compatibility (EMC) regulations for use in the recreational marine environment.
Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC performance is not compromised.
Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it is not affected by
radio transmissions, engine starting or other forms of interference.
To do this:
1. Turn on all transmitting equipment (radar, VHF radio, etc.).
2. Check that all electronic systems are unaffected by interference from the transmitting equipment.

EMC installation guidelines
Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to the appropriate Electromagnetic
Compatibility (EMC) regulations. This minimizes electromagnetic interference
between equipment, which could otherwise affect the performance of your system.
Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC performance is not compromised.
For optimum EMC performance, we make the following recommendations:
•
•
•
•
•
Place Raymarine equipment and cables at least 3 ft (1 m) from any equipment that
transmits, or cables that carry, radio signals from VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft. (2 m).
Place Raymarine equipment and cables more than 7 ft (2 m) from the path of a
radar beam. A radar beam can normally be assumed to spread 20 degrees above
and below the radiating element.
Use a power source separate from that used for engine-start. This is important to
prevent erratic behavior and data loss which can occur if the engine-start does not
have a separate battery.
Use Raymarine-specified cables.
Do not cut or extend cables unless doing so is detailed in the installation manual.
Remember
Where constraints on the installation prevent any of the above recommendations:
•
Always allow the maximum separation possible between different items of electrical equipment.
This will provide the best conditions for good EMC performance of the installation.
Suppression ferrites
Raymarine cables may be fitted with suppression ferrites. These are necessary for
correct EMC performance. Any ferrite removed during installation must be replaced
as soon as installation is complete.
Use only ferrites of the correct type, supplied by Raymarine authorized dealers.
Connections to other equipment
If Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable not
supplied by Raymarine, a Raymarine suppression ferrite MUST always be attached
to the cable near the Raymarine unit.
EMC Servicing and maintenance
•
•
Undue noise and interference may be a symptom of an EMC-related problem.
Please report any EMC-related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer. We
use such information to improve our quality standards.
To minimize any EMC related problems and ensure the best possible performance form your Raymarine equipment, follow the guidelines given in the installation instructions.

Product disposal
Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) Directive
The WEEE Directive requires the recycling of waste electrical and electronic
equipment.

we support its policy and ask you to be aware of how to dispose of this product.
The crossed out wheelie bin symbol, illustrated above, and found on our products
signifies that this product should not be disposed of in general waste or landfill.
Please contact your local dealer, national distributor or Raymarine Technical Services

2.2 Positioning the ST70 autopilot controller
•
•
•
•
CAUTION: The autopilot controller must be placed a safe distance from
equipment that could adversely effect its performance. Refer to the EMC
guidelines on.
There must be sufficient space to mount the autopilot controller.
There should be no obstacles between the user and the autopilot controller.
The connection point should be within 400mm of the install location (unless you
are using an extension cable). In a SeaTalkng network, the connection point will be
a T-piece or connector block on the backbone cable, or another ST70 instrument;
on SeaTalk, the connection point will be an existing instrument, or a connector
block on the system.
Any holes cut to mount the instrument must not compromise the vessel’s structure.

Chapter 3: Installation
Read Chapter 1 of this book before you continue. This will help you to:
• Identify the correct installation location and appropriate network connection point.
• Obtain the appropriate tools and connecting cables.
WARNING: Electrical safety
Before you make any electrical connections, ensure the power
supply is switched off and you have read the EMC installation
guidelines (see page 4).
CAUTION: For safety reasons your boat must be at dockside before
commencing installation.
3.1 To install the autopilot controller
Once you are certain it is safe to proceed, carry out the installation tasks listed below
in order.
1. Fit cable to system connection point and route to ST70 controller location
SeaTalkng systems:
•
•
Label both ends of the SeaTalkng cable, and attach it to the backbone or an
existing ST70 instrument on your system.
Route the cable to the location where you plan to mount the ST70 controller.

Note: Check that the cable reaches the required location. If you wish to place the ST70 controller further than 400mm from the connection point you will need to purchase an appropriate
SeaTalkng or SeaTalkng-to-SeaTalk cable.
2. Cut mounting holes
•
•
Use the appropriate flush- or surface-mount template to cut the mounting slot for
the autopilot controller and to drill holes for the fixing screws. See the back of this
book for templates.
Clean and de-burr the mounting surface
