Data inputs
The ST60+ Tridata instrument can fulfil master and/or repeater roles by receiving
data either from the appropriate transducers and/or from a SeaTalk
instrumentation system.
SeaTalk
SeaTalk enables a number of compatible instruments to operate as a single,
integrated navigational system. Instruments in a SeaTalk system are linked by
means of a single cable, which feeds both power and data. Instruments can
therefore be added to the system by plugging them into the network. SeaTalk is
flexible enough to adapt to any number of compatible instruments without
requiring a central processor. SeaTalk can also communicate via an interface, with
non-SeaTalk equipment using the internationally-accepted National Marine
Electronics Association (NMEA) protocol.
81263_2.book Page viii Monday, December 5, 2005 9:08 AM
viii
ST60+ Tridata Instrument Owner’s Handbook
In a SeaTalk system, each instrument can be either a master or dedicated repeater
unit. A master instrument is directly connected to a transducer (the device that
provides the raw data), and provides data and control appropriate to its function,
to all other equipment on the SeaTalk network. A repeater instrument is not
directly connected to a transducer but displays information provided by other
equipment in the SeaTalk network.
Stand alone operation
In Stand alone operation, the ST60+ Tridata instrument is connected only to the
relevant transducer and does not display information from, or provide
information to, any other instruments.
Remote control
When connected to SeaTalk, the ST60+ Tridata instrument can be controlled
remotely by a SeaTalk Remote Keypad Unit, to provide instant remote access to
the various display readouts.
Mounting options
A standard ST60+ instrument is surface-mounted at the required location. If you
do not want to surface mount your ST60+ instrument, options are available for:
• Flush mounting. If you have ordered the flush mounting option a flush mount
bezel and four fixing screws are also provided.
• Bracket mounting.

Chapter 1: Operation
1.1 Getting started
This handbook describes how to operate, maintain and install the Raymarine
ST60+ Tridata instrument.
WARNING: Calibration requirement
To ensure this product performs at its best on your boat, you
MUST calibrate it before use, in accordance with the instructions
in Chapter 4, Calibration. Do NOT use the product until you have
successfully calibrated it.
Switching on and off
All the time that power is applied to the instrument, you can use the depth
button to switch the instrument off and on as follows:
• To switch the instrument off, hold down the depth button for approximately
5 seconds. After this time, a switch off count down of 4 seconds occurs. Keep
the depth button pressed during this period, to switch off the instrument.
• To switch the instrument back on, hold down the depth button for approximately 1 second.
When the power supply is switched off, none of the instrument buttons (including
depth) has any effect.
Notes: (1) Each time power to the instrument is switched on, the instrument is ini-
tially in the on condition. You do not need to use the depth button to
switch the instrument on.
(2) When the instrument is on, the operation of the depth button will
perform other operating functions, as described below.
Displayed information
The ST60+ Tridata instrument screen is divided into three separate areas, each of
which displays a separate type of information, as shown in the following
illustration.

1.2 Normal operation
Use the flow charts in this Chapter to operate your ST60+ Tridata instrument.
Flow charts are provided for:
• Using the depth button. This gives access to current depth information. On
master instruments, this also gives access to depth alarm level information,
and allows you to set the alarm levels.
• Using the speed button. This gives access to maximum speed, average speed
and Velocity Made Good (VMG) to windward.
• Using the trip button to gain access to log, trip, water temperature and timer
information.
All button presses are momentary unless otherwise stated.
Depth information
Use the depth button to select the required information, as shown in the Using
the depth button illustration. The depth measurement units are either feet or
metres, as selected during user calibration (see Chapter 4, Calibration ).
Using with fishfinder products
Depth information is normally obtained from the Depth transducer, fitted as part
of an ST60+ Depth or Tridata system. However, when the ST60+ Tridata
instrument is connected to a SeaTalk system, to which a compatible fishfinder is
also connected, the depth information is provided by the fishfinder all the time the
fishfinder is switched on.
Current depth display
The current depth screen shows the title DEPTH, the selected depth units and the
depth measurement. It also shows a depth trend indicator, which is either an up
arrow to show seabed rising or a down arrow to show seabed falling.
If for any reason depth information is lost, the DEPTH title will flash once per
second and the displayed depth value will be the last good reading.

ST60+ Tridata Instrument Owner’s Handbook
An alarm condition occurs if:
• The depth is less than the SHALLOW or SHALLOW anchor level.
• The depth is greater than the DEEP anchor level.
• The depth crosses the DEEP level.
An alarm condition is indicated by an alarm buzzer and a flashing alarm symbol
( ) on the display. SHALLOW or DEEP alarms are indicated by up and down
arrows respectively, and for anchor alarms, the anchor symbol ( ) is displayed.
When the instrument is operating as a master, you can check the alarm levels and
if necessary set them up. If an alarm is not enabled, the associated display shows
an OFF legend.
Adjusting alarm levels
To adjust the alarm levels:
1. Use the depth button to display the alarm screen you want to adjust
2. Press the trip and reset buttons simultaneously to enter adjust mode, then
use either the trip button (to decrease) or the reset button (to increase) the
level.
3. When you have set the required value, press the trip and reset buttons
again, to save the alarm setting and exit the adjust mode.
Note: Adjustment of the shallow alarm level can be disabled during calibration. If adjust-
ment is disabled, you cannot enter adjust mode.
Speed information
Use the speed button to select the required information, as shown in the Using
the speed button illustration. The speed measurement units are either knots
(KTS), miles per hour (MPH) or kilometres per hour (KMH), as selected during
user calibration (see Chapter 4, Calibration ).
The maximum speed, average speed and VMG to windward are each displayed
for 7 seconds, and if no action is taken during that time, the display will timeout to
the Boat speed display.
Boat speed
Shows the current speed and selected speed units. The speed information is
obtained either from a speed transducer, or derived from Speed Over Ground
(SOG). SOG is available if you are connected to a SeaTalk system to which a
compatible GPS is also connected.
The source of speed information (transducer or SOG) is selected during Dealer
calibration (see Chapter 4 , Calibration ).

Chapter 2: Maintenance & Troubleshooting
2.1 Maintenance
Servicing and safety
• Raymarine equipment should be serviced only by authorised Raymarine service technicians. They will ensure that servicing procedures and replacement
parts used will not affect performance. There are no user-serviceable parts in
any Raymarine product.
• Some products generate high voltages, and so never handle the cables/connectors when power is being applied to the equipment.
• When powered up, all electrical equipment produces electromagnetic fields.
These can cause adjacent pieces of electrical equipment to interact with one
another, with a consequent adverse effect on operation. In order to minimise
these effects and enable you to get the best possible performance from your
Raymarine equipment, guidelines are given in the installation instructions, to
enable you to ensure minimum interaction between different items of equipment, i.e. ensure optimum Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
• Always report any EMC-related problem to your nearest Raymarine dealer.
We use such information to improve our quality standards.
• In some installations, it may not be possible to prevent the equipment from
being affected by external influences. In general this will not damage the
equipment but it can lead to spurious resetting action, or momentarily may
result in faulty operation.
Instrument
Certain atmospheric conditions may cause condensation to form on the
instrument window. This will not harm the instrument and can be cleared by
increasing the illumination setting to Level 3.
Periodically clean your ST60+ instrument with a soft damp cloth. Do NOT use
chemical and abrasive materials to clean the instrument.
Transducers
Refer to the Installation and Maintenance instructions supplied with the
transducers.
81263_2.book Page 10 Monday, December 5, 2005 9:08 AM

ST60+ Tridata Instrument Owner’s Handbook
Cabling
Examine all cables for chafing or other damage to the outer shield, and where
necessary, replace and re-secure.
2.2 Troubleshooting
Preliminary procedures
Changes in the electronic environment may adversely affect the oper-ation of
your ST60+ equipment. Typical examples of such changes are:
• Electrical equipment has recently been installed or moved aboard your vessel.
• You are in the vicinity of another vessel or shore station emitting radio signals.
If you appear to have a problem, first ensure that the EMC requirements (see
Chapter 3, Installation) are still being met before further investigating the
problem.
Fixing faults
CAUTION: Prevention of flooding
If you need to remove the transducer insert, have the transducer
bung to hand and secure it in the transducer body immediately
after the insert has been removed, to prevent excessive ingress
of water.
All Raymarine products are subjected to comprehensive test and quality
assurance programmes prior to packing and shipping. However, if a fault occurs,
the following table may help to identify and rectify the problem.

EMC Installation Guidelines
All Raymarine equipment and accessories are designed to the best industry
standards for use in the recreational marine environment.
Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Electromagnetic
Compatibility (EMC) standards, but correct installation is required to ensure that
performance is not compromised. Although every effort has been taken to ensure
that they will perform under all conditions, it is important to understand what
factors could affect the operation of the product.
The guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance,
but it is recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all
situations. To ensure the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the
81263_2.book Page 17 Monday, December 5, 2005 9:08 AM
Chapter 3: Installation
17
constraints imposed by any location, always ensure the maximum separation
possible between different items of electrical equipment.
For optimum EMC performance, it is recommended that wherever possible:
• Raymarine equipment and cables connected to it are:
• At least 3 ft (1 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying
radio signals e.g. VHF radios, cables and antennas. In the case of SSB
radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft (2 m).
• 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.
• The equipment is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine
start. Voltage drops below 10 V in the power supply to our products, and
starter motor transients, can cause the equipment to reset. This will not damage the equipment, but may cause the loss of some information and may
change the operating mode.
• Raymarine specified cables are used. Cutting and rejoining these cables can
compromise EMC performance and must be avoided unless doing so is
detailed in the installation manual.
• If a suppression ferrite is attached to a cable, this ferrite should not be
removed. If the ferrite needs to be removed during installation it must be reassembled in the same position.
Suppression Ferrites
The following illustration shows typical cable suppression ferrites used with
Raymarine equipment. Always use the ferrites supplied by Raymarine.
D3548-2
Connections to Other Equipment
If your Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable
not supplied by Raymarine, a suppression ferrite MUST always be attached to the
cable near the Raymarine unit.

3.2 Procedures
As it is not practical to describe procedures for all possible installation scenarios,
the procedures given here describe the broad requirements for installing the
Speed and Depth transducers and the ST60+ Tridata instrument. Adapt these
procedures as appropriate, to suit your individual requirement.
CAUTION: Maintain structural safety
Where it is necessary to cut holes (e.g. for cable routing and
instrument mounting), ensure that these will not cause a hazard
by weakening critical parts of the vessel’s structure.
Unpacking
Unpack your ST60+ equipment and check that the items described in Introduction
are present.
Each ST60+ instrument is supplied with a standard bezel for surface mounting.
Optional mounting kits are available for flush mounting and bracket mounting
the instrument. If you have ordered the flush mounting option a flush mount bezel
and four fixing screws are also provided.
Fitting the instrument
The ST60+ Tridata instrument can be installed using one of a number of different
mounting options:
• Surface mounting. Gives a profile of approximately 24 mm.
• Flush mounting. Gives a profile of approximately 6 mm.
• Bracket mounting.
The ST60+ instruments can also be mounted behind a panel with just the
instrument dial and buttons visible.
Surface mounting
To surface mount your ST60+ instrument (see the Surface mounting illustration):
1. Ensure that:
• The selected location is clean, smooth and flat.
• There is sufficient space behind the selected location to accommodate the

Bracket mounting
A Control Unit Mounting Bracket (Part No. E25009) enables you to mount your
ST60+ instrument in locations where other forms of mounting are impractical.
Although this provides a useful alternative method for securing your instrument,
it is only suitable for use in positions where the instrument will not be exposed to
water.
To bracket mount your ST60+ instrument, do so in accordance with the Control
Unit Mounting Bracket Instruction Sheet.
Fitting transducer
The ST60+ Tridata instrument is supplied, with appropriate through-hull Speed
and Depth transducers.
Each transducer is supplied with detailed instructions for installation and
maintenance. Before attempting to install a transducer, read these instructions
and the Site requirements for transducers described in this Chapter.
81263_2.book Page 23 Monday, December 5, 2005 9:08 AM
Chapter 3: Installation
23
Once you are satisfied you can meet all the installation requirements, install the
transducer in accordance with the accompanying installation instructions.
Running transducer cable
Each transducer type has a 14 m (45 ft) cable fitted with spade terminals for
connection to the ST60+ Tridata instrument. The manner in which you run the
cable will depend on the locations of the transducers and instrument. The
following guidelines are provided:
• If the cable has to be fed through the deck, always use a proprietary deck
gland.
• Where cables are fed through holes, always use grommets to prevent chafing.
• Secure long cable runs so they do not present a hazard.
• Do not route the cable through bilges.
• Wherever possible, route the cable away from fluorescent lights, engines,
radio transmitting equipment, as these may cause interference.
• The transducer cables are fitted with spade connectors for direct connection
to the rear of the instrument. However, it may be necessary to remove these to
facilitate installation, e.g. if a cable has to be routed through narrow apertures. Extra spade connectors are provided, to replace any that are removed
when running transducer cables. When fitting spade connectors, prepare the
cable as at (a) in the following illustration, then fold back the wire strands and
insert into the spade connector as at (b). Ensure the wire strands do not
extend beyond the rear of the spade connector insulation, then crimp the connector to the wire.

Connecting the instrument
Types of connection
The ST60+ Tridata instrument, can be connected:
• As a stand-alone, master instrument connected directly to a Speed and/or
Depth transducer.
• As a SeaTalk repeater.
• To fulfil both repeater and master roles by being connected both to the transducer and to SeaTalk.
If instruments are connected to SeaTalk, no separate power connection is
necessary. Where a SeaTalk system includes an autopilot, the power for the
system is provided by the autopilot.
A range of Raymarine SeaTalk extension cables is available to connect separated
instruments. These cables are supplied with a SeaTalk connector fitted to each
end. A junction box can be used to join cables.
Fitting ferrites
If you are going to connect a Depth transducer to an ST60+ Tridata instrument, fit
suppression ferrites near the instrument end of the SeaTalk and Depth transducer
cables, as follows.
1. Release the catch on the ferrite, open it up then snap it closed around the
cable.
2. Position the ferrite as close as possible to the instrument end of the cable
(maximum 1 foot (300 mm) from the end) and fit a tie-wrap on the cable
either side of the ferrite, to hold it in position.
Note: It is NOT necessary to fit a ferrite to the Speed transducer cable.

Chapter 4: Calibration
4.1 Introduction
The ST60+ Tridata instrument is set up with factory-programmed default settings,
so in order to optimise the performance of the instrument on board a particular
vessel, the procedures in this Chapter must be carried out immediately after the
completion of installation and before the equipment is used for navigational
purposes.
Where practicable, the calibration procedures are presented diagrammatically to
show the sequence of button presses and the resulting displays. Adjustment
instructions are given as applicable.
4.2 User calibration
The User calibration procedures enable you to:
• Set the required units for depth readings.
• Set the offset for depth readings, i.e. determine whether depth readings are
from the keel of the vessel or from the water line.
• Lock the shallow alarm.
• Set the required units for speed readings.
• Set the speed resolution.
• Select the log distance units
• Set the speed readings on the instrument to be a true indication of the actual
speed of the vessel.
• Select temperature units.
• Calibrate for correct temperature readings.
• Set timer alarm buzzer on or off.
Separate routines are provided for the User calibration of the depth and speed
functions. To carry out either of these routines:
1. Power up the ST60+ Tridata instrument.
2. Hold down the depth and speed buttons for approximately 2 seconds so
that the User calibration entry screen is displayed.
3. Carry out the User calibration procedures for Depth and Speed.

Depth units
You can set either FEET or METRES.
Depth offset
Depths are measured from the transducer to the sea bed. However, you can use
the depth offset screen to apply offsets to this distance, so that the displayed
depth reading represents either the depth from the keel or the depth from the
water line. In order to do this, you need to know the vertical separation between
the transducer position and:
• The bottom of the keel.
• The water line.

Setting offset values
WARNING: Use the correct depth offset
The use of the correct depth offset is critical to the safety of the
vessel. If incorrect offset values are applied, this could result in
misleading depth information being displayed with a
consequent risk of running aground. Take great care to ensure
you set the correct value.
Use the trip (decrement) and reset (increment) buttons to set the required offset
value:
• If you want to display the depth reading from the transducer, set a value of
0.0.
• If you want to apply a water line offset, adjust the displayed reading until the
appropriate positive offset value is shown.
• If you want to apply a keel offset, adjust the displayed reading until the appropriate negative offset value is shown.
Shallow alarm lock
When set to on, prevents alteration to the shallow depth alarm level.
Speed
An important reason for speed calibration is to ensure that speed readings
displayed on the instrument are a true indication of the actual speed of the vessel.
In User calibration, Speed, you can:
• Automatically set the displayed speed reading to be the same as the Speed
Over Ground (SOG) (if SOG data is available).
• Manually apply a calibration factor, to set the displayed speed to the required
value.
If neither of the above methods are suitable, you can carry out a speed calibration
run over a measured distance, to enable the instrument to calculate the correct
calibration factor. This is described as part of Intermediate calibration.
To calibrate the speed functions:
1. With the User calibration entry screen displayed, press the speed button.
2. Referring to the User calibration - speed illustration, carry out the calibration
procedure. Use the speed button to move from screen to screen and the trip
and reset buttons to set the required values at each screen (except Adjust to
SOG display).

Set speed resolution
Select resolution of either 0.01 or 0.1 as required.
Set log units
Select either NM (nautical miles), SM (statute miles) or KM (kilometres), as
required.
Setting the correct speed
Set the displayed (current) speed using one of the following methods:
• If SOG is available from SeaTalk, use the Adjust to SOG screen to automatically set the current speed to. You must be running in slack tide conditions to
successfully use this method.
• Manually apply a calibration factor by means of the Cal factor adjust screen,
to set the displayed speed value to your best estimate of the vessel’s speed.
If neither of the above methods is suitable, use the Speed calibration procedure
described underIntermediate calibration to carry out a speed calibration run over
a measured distance. This enables the instrument to calculate the correct
calibration factor.
Adjust to SOG
The Adjust to SOG screen is displayed only if SOG data is available from SeaTalk.
The current SOG is displayed in the bottom section of the display (SG12.8 in the
illustration), and the current speed registered by the instrument, as large figures
in the middle section of the display (12.3 in the illustration).
It is recommended that, if you are running in slack tide conditions, you press the
reset button for 3 seconds, to accept the SOG as the current speed.
If you do not wish to accept SOG as the current speed, press the trip and reset
buttons together to select the Cal factor adjust display.
Cal factor adjust
The Cal factor adjust screen enables you to manually adjust the calibration factor.
It shows the current calibration factor in the bottom section of the display (CF
1.00 in the illustration), and the current speed as large figures (12.3 in the
illustration).
Use the trip or reset button to adjust the calibration factor so that the current
speed is the speed through the water.
If SOG data is available from SeaTalk, you can turn to the Adjust to SOG screen by
pressing the trip and reset button s.
Note: If neither of the above methods gives satisfactory results, carry out the Speed cali-
bration procedure (part of Intermediate calibration).

4.3 Intermediate calibration
Intermediate calibration enables you to:
• Check the instrument software version.
• Check the instrument status - either YES (master) or NO (repeater). You can
also change the depth status, as required. This feature is particularly useful in
preventing interference when using another product (e.g. a fishfinder) that
operates at 200 kHz.
• Carry out a calibration run over a measured distance to ensure accurate speed
readings.

To set the instrument status:
1. Press the depth button to select the Instrument status screen.
2. Press the trip and reset buttons simultaneously to enter the depth adjust
mode, then press either trip or reset to set the required status, i.e. either
YES (for master operation) or NO (for repeater operation).
Note: You must not allocate more than one master depth instrument in any system.
3. Press the trip and reset buttons simultaneously again, to leave the adjust
mode.
Note: If a fishfinder is connected to the same SeaTalk system as your ST60+ Tridata in-
strument and is switched on, all ST60+ Depth and Tridata instruments in the system will
display FISHFINDER depth information from SeaTalk. Under these conditions, a master
ST60+ Tridata instrument will act as a slave, and in Intermediate calibration, the YES
legend will change to SLA when not in adjust mode.
Speed calibration
The speed calibration procedure involves carrying out two runs over a measured
distance, to enable a calibration factor to be determined and applied to your
ST60+ Tridata instrument, to ensure optimum accuracy. Each calibration run
comprises outward and return legs, to minimise the affect of tidal drift when the
calibration factor is determined.
Note: It is recommended that the speed calibration procedure is carried out in conditions
of minimum tidal drift.
To carry out a speed calibration, start the Intermediate calibration procedure and
use the speed button to proceed to the Calibration run length screen (see sheet 1
of the Speed calibration flow chart). Proceed with the speed calibration as
follows:
1. With the Calibration Run Length screen displayed, simultaneously press the
trip and reset buttons, to enter adjust mode. In this mode, the displayed run
length flashes on and off.
2. Set the length of the intended calibration run, using either the trip button to
decrement or the reset button to increment the run length value. You can set
any value between 0.25 and 2.50.
3. Press trip and reset buttons together to commence the speed calibration. The
Cal status screen is displayed. The information at the bottom of the screen
alternates between Strt 1 and the calibration factor (CF) currently applied.
4. Start the outward leg of the calibration run and as you pass the start point,
press the speed button, so that the text out shows at the bottom of the
screen. As the calibration run proceeds, the displayed value will increment.

5. At the end of the outward leg, press the speed button again so that:
• The text rEtrn is flashing at the bottom of the screen.
• The displayed distance freezes. Note that this value may not be the same
as the measured distance due to errors introduced by tidal flow.
6. Turn the vessel round, start the return leg and as you do so, press the speed
button so the rEtrn legend stops flashing and the displayed value increments.
7. At the end of the return leg, press the speed button to end the calibration
run. At this point:
• The text Strt 2 alternating with the new calibration factor is displayed
at the bottom of the screen.
• The displayed distance freezes. This value should be very close to the
actual (measured) distance of the calibration run.

• If you want to carry out a second calibration run:
i. Press speed to start the second calibration run (see sheet 2 of the
Speed calibration flow chart).
ii. Use the procedure described above in steps 4 to 7, to complete the
second run. At the end of the second run, the text END alternating
with the new calibration factor is displayed at the top of the screen.
iii. Press the depth and speed buttons together, to store the new calibration factor, exit speed calibration and return to the Instrument status screen.
Leaving Intermediate calibration
Hold down the depth and speed buttons for 2 seconds, to save your settings,
exit Intermediate calibration and resume normal operation.
4.4 Dealer calibration
The Dealer calibration procedures enable the following parameters to be set:
• User calibration on/off.
• Data source for speed information.
• Speed response.
• Depth response.
• Boat show mode on/off.
Dealer calibration also gives access to the Factory defaults screen. This enables
you to re-apply the factory settings if you want to reset the instrument to a known
operating condition.
To commence Dealer calibration, hold down the depth and speed buttons
together for approximately 12 seconds, to select the Dealer calibration entry page
(see Dealer calibration diagram). Then press the trip and reset buttons
together, to enter the calibration screen sequence.
Use the depth button to move from screen to screen and the trip or the rest
button to set the required values at each screen.
User calibration on/off
Press either the trip or reset button to toggle the User calibration on or off as
required. With off selected, User calibration and Intermediate calibration are
both disabled.

Response settings
The response values for both SPEED and DEPTH determine the frequency at
which information is updated. A low number provides a smooth response and a
high number a much livelier update.
Use the trip (decrement) and reset (increment) buttons to set the required value.
Response values are from 1 to 15.
Boat show mode
CAUTION: Do NOT enable Boat Show Mode
Do NOT enable Boat Show Mode. This must be used only for
demonstration purposes.
Ensure that the Boatshow Mode Use is set to OFF. If necessary, use the trip or
reset button to achieve this.
Factory defaults
You can use this screen to reset the operating parameters to the factory default
values. Use the trip and reset buttons to make the required selection.
Note that the selection you make at this screen will be applied when you exit the
screen, so be sure you make the correct selection.
To retain the current values, ensure that the display shows NO.
If you want to apply the factory defaults, change the display to YES. If you do
this, the values you have set up will be overwritten by the factory defaults when
you leave this screen.
Leaving Dealer calibration
Hold down the depth and speed buttons for 2 seconds to save your settings, exit
Dealer calibration and resume normal operation.
