General maintenance
Routine checks
The S100 controller does NOT contain user-serviceable parts. If you remove
the main cover you will invalidate the warranty. It should be serviced only by
authorized Raymarine service technician.
As a result, user maintenance is limited to the following checks
•
•
•
make sure all cable connectors are firmly attached and free of
corrosion
examine for signs of wear or damage – replace any damaged
cables
replace batteries when necessary
Cleaning the S100
Take care when cleaning the display. Avoid wiping the display screen with a
dry cloth as this could scratch the screen coating. If necessary, only use a
mild detergent.
Never use chemical or abrasive materials to clean the computer or
controller. If it is dirty, wipe it with a clean, damp cloth.
Dealer Maintenance Procedures
This section includes procedures that have a significant impact on autopilot
operation and can affect your boat’s safety. You will not need to follow
these procedures in normal operation. We therefore recommend that these
are only performed by authorized service personnel.
Accessing the dealer calibration area.
From STANDBY mode, press and hold STANDBY for 2 seconds to enter
PILOT SETUP. Then press and hold mode for 5 seconds until the dealer
calibration screen is displayed.

Self test
Press PILOT to start the unit test sequence and then follow the on-screen
instructions. This will test the display, buzzer and button functions.
Diagnostics
Press PILOT to display the status of the wireless link.
Handset Registration
Raymarine wireless systems demand that each wireless controller is
“registered” to a basestation. This registration process is to prevent
unauthorized control of your boat by another user nearby. Your S100 system
is supplied with the handset pre-registered to the basestation.
There may be instances where you want to move your controller to another
boat and use it with another system. In this case, you will need to de-register
from the current system and register with the new system. You can do this
using the REGISTRATION function.

Raymarine S100 Controller
Safety Notices
Product installation
This equipment must be installed and operated in accordance with the
instructions contained in this handbook. Failure to do so could result in poor
product performance, personal injury and/or damage to your boat.
As correct performance of the boat’s steering is critical for safety, we
STRONGLY RECOMMEND that an Authorized Raymarine Service
Representative fits this product.
WARNING: Electrical Safety
Make sure the power supply is switched off before you make
any electrical connections.
WARNING: Navigation aid
Although we have designed this product to be accurate and
reliable, many factors can affect its performance. As a result,
it should only be used as an aid to navigation and should
never replace common sense and navigational judgement.
Always maintain a permanent watch so you can respond to
situations as they develop.
WARNING: Autopilot controller
If the wireless controller is your only method of operating
the autopilot, ensure that an in-line power switch is fitted to
the autopilot power supply as detailed in the S1000 autopilot
installation guide.
Your S100 will add a new dimension to your boating enjoyment. However, it
is the skipper’s responsibility to ensure the safety of the boat at all times by
following these basic rules:
•
Ensure that someone is present at the helm AT ALL TIMES, to
take manual control in an emergency.
User Guide
31
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure that all members of crew know how to disengage the
autopilot.
Regularly check for other boats and any obstacles to navigation
– no matter how clear the sea may appear, a dangerous situation
can develop rapidly.
Maintain an accurate record of the boat’s position by using
either a navigation aid or visual bearings.
Maintain a continuous plot of your boat’s position on a current
chart. Ensure that the locked autopilot heading will steer the
boat clear of all obstacles. Make proper allowance for tidal set –
the autopilot cannot.
Even when your autopilot is locked onto the desired track using a
navigation aid, always maintain a log and make regular
positional plots. Navigation signals can produce significant
errors under some circumstances and the autopilot will not be
able to detect these errors.
General Care and Safety
Do not leave the controller in places where the temperature could exceed
60ºC (140ºF).
Do not attempt to dismantle the S100 or any of its accessories.
Switch off your S100 system at a refuelling point, even if you are not
refuelling your own vessel.
The operation of some medical electronic devices such as hearing aids and
pacemakers, may be affected if a controller is used next to them. Observe
the manufacturers recommendations for such devices.
Radio frequency energy
Your S100 and basestation are low- power radio transmitters and receivers.
When it is turned on, they intermittently receive and transmit radio
frequency (RF) energy (radio waves).
32
Raymarine S100 Controller
Exposure to radio frequency energy
The S100 and basestation are designed not to exceed the limits for
exposure to RF energy set by national authorities and international health
agencies These limits establish permitted levels of radio wave exposure for
the general population. An example of a radio frequency exposure
guideline and standard that these are designed to conform to is:
BS EN 50371:2002 - Generic standard to demonstrate the compliance of
low-power electronic and electrical apparatus with the basic restrictions
related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields.
FCC Information
These devices comply with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) these devices may not cause harmful
