Safety notices
WARNING: 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.
CAUTION:
Before installing the SmartPilot computer and drive unit, check that
they are the correct voltage for your boat’s supply.
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.
WARNING: Electrical safety
Make sure the power supply is switched off before you make any
electrical connections.
WARNING: Calibration
We supply this product calibrated to default settings that should provide
initial stable performance for most boats. To ensure optimum
performance on your boat, you must complete Chapter 2: SmartPilot
Commissioning.
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.
Your SmartPilot 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.
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.
v
•
•
•
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.
EMC 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 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, 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.
vi
SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
•
•
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.
EMC suppression ferrites
The following illustration shows typical cable suppression ferrites used with
Raymarine equipment. Always use the ferrites supplied by Raymarine.
D3548-5
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 to the Raymarine unit.
Handbook information
To the best of our knowledge, the information in this handbook was correct
when it went to press. However, Raymarine cannot accept liability for any
inaccuracies or omissions it may contain. In addition, our policy of
continuous product improvement may change specifications without notice.
As a result, Raymarine cannot accept liability for any differences between
the product and the handbook.

1.7 How to connect SeaTalk equipment
You can use SeaTalk to connect your SmartPilot to:
•
•
additional SeaTalk controllers: you can use any controller to operate the
SmartPilot and view autopilot information
SeaTalk equipment (such as instruments, chartplotter, radar and GPS):
• the SmartPilot can use information from this equipment to enhance
course keeping and provide additional features.
• you can also display information from the SeaTalk equipment on the
SmartPilot controller.
The following illustrations show some typical ways to connect simple
SeaTalk systems.
Single control unit, single power supply
The simplest type of system has the SmartPilot computer providing power to
a single SeaTalk bus that includes a single controller and several instruments.

If you have two control units, we recommend that you connect one to each
SeaTalk terminal. In the following illustration:
•
•
the SmartPilot computer provides power to the SeaTalk system
one control unit is connected on its own to SeaTalk A so it is isolated
against any possible failure of SeaTalk B
If the SeaTalk B line fails, the isolated control unit will switch to Standby
mode as a safety measure. By pressing auto on the isolated control unit you
can regain full autopilot control.

Note: Depending on the number of SeaTalk units and the total length of
SeaTalk cabling, you may need to provide12 V power supply to each end of
the SeaTalk bus (‘ring-main’ style). Refer to the instrument handbook for
more information.
Separate SmartPilot computer and instrument power
Another option is to provide separate power supplies to the SmartPilot
computer and SeaTalk system so you can have independent, switched
instrument and pilot systems. This will only work when the red wire is not
connected at the SmartPilot computer terminal, as illustrated below.
The behavior of the computer and the instruments now depend on where
power is applied to the system.
•
Computer AND instrument power supplies ON:
The system will function normally.

Connecting SeaTalk or NMEA compasses
You can connect SeaTalk or NMEA compasses to the SmartPilot computer,
either to replace the fluxgate compass or provide supplementary compass
signals.
When you connect more than one compass to the autopilot system, the
computer processes their signals in this order of priority:
1. Fluxgate compass
2. NMEA compass
3. SeaTalk compass
This means that if you want to use a NMEA compass as the primary compass,
you need to disconnect the fluxgate compass.
To connect a SeaTalk or NMEA compass to the autopilot system:
•
•
NMEA compass: connect it to a NMEA input on the computer
SeaTalk compass: connect it to the SeaTalk bus or the SeaTalk terminals
12
SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
1.8 How to connect NMEA equipment
If you have equipment on your boat that transmits or receives NMEA 0183
data (e.g. GPS), you can connect this equipment to the SmartPilot. NMEA
equipment can be connected in any combination of these ways:
•
•
•
using the SmartPilot computer NMEA input/output
using the NMEA input on the back of the SmartPilot controller. (Refer to
the Controller handbook for NMEA data details)
using the SeaTalk/NMEA interface (part number: E85001) to convert the
NMEA data to SeaTalk data
WARNING: Connections to other equipment
If you are connecting Raymarine equipment to other equipment using a
non-Raymarine cable, you MUST attach an appropriate suppression
ferrite to the cable near to the Raymarine unit.

This fast heading data is suitable for use with the MARPA
function on radar equipment.
1.9 How to connect optional components
Note: For installation, refer to the guide supplied with the component.
GyroPlus yaw sensor
Non-G SmartPilots do not contain a built-in Gyro, but you have the option of
adding:
•
•
an external GyroPlus (part number: E12101)
or a dealer-fitted internal GyroPlus (part number: A18069)
Handheld remotes
You can connect handheld remotes to the SmartPilot:
•
•
the ST600R remote control unit (part number: A12016) can act as the
sole pilot controller in your system or as a full-function remote for systems with other fixed pilot controllers.
the compact SeaTalk handheld remote (part number: A15002) gives you
full course control away from the main steering position

External alarm
The SmartPilot sounds all critical alarms from all controllers. On large or
noisy boats you can fit a Raymarine external alarm (part number: Z035,
connected through E85001 interface box) as a high volume audible repeater.
Wind vane (sail boats)
The SmartPilot computer can use wind angle information from a wind vane
or instrument to maintain a course relative to the wind. You can provide wind
angle information to the autopilot system by connecting it to:
•
•
a suitable SeaTalk or NMEA instrument (providing wind angle and speed
information)
a Raymarine pushpit wind vane (part number: Z159) connected through
an interface box (part number: M81189)
Off switch (S2 and S3 only)
The SmartPilot computer has inputs so you can fit an off switch if required.
By closing a circuit, this switch will turn off the computer power supply.
Connect a suitable off switch to the OFF SWITCH inputs on the computer.

2.2 Seatrial Calibration
When you have completed the dockside calibration, you must complete
SmartPilot setup by taking the boat on a short seatrial to:
1. Calibrate the compass:
• complete the automatic deviation correction
• align the compass heading
2. Adjust SmartPilot settings to suit your boat:
• automatically on S1G, S2G and S3G systems
• manually on Non-G systems
To achieve this you will need to enter another of the four calibration modes,
Seatrial Calibration. For more information on the various calibration modes
and their uses see page 39.
Seatrial safety
CAUTION: EMC conformance
Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it is
not affected by radio transmissions, engine starting etc.
Note: You can return to manual steering at any time during the seatrial by
pressing standby.
You should only perform the initial seatrial:
•
•
•
when you have successfully completed the dockside calibration
in conditions of light wind and calm water, so you can assess SmartPilot
performance without the influence of strong winds or large waves
in waters that are clear of any obstructions, so the boat has plenty of clear
space to maneuver
Note: Before you start your seatrial, make sure you have switched on any
ancillary equipment – such as a GPS (providing course over ground (COG),
speed over ground (SOG) and latitude (LAT) data) or a speed log (providing
speed through the water). This information will help the SmartPilot achieve
best performance.
28
SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
Calibrating the compass
Note: This section does not apply if you have connected an NMEA compass
to your SmartPilot. Refer to the handbook supplied with the NMEA compass
for information about calibration.
Deviating magnetic fields can cause significant compass errors on your boat.
The correction procedure reduces these errors to a few degrees, so you
MUST perform this procedure as the first item in your initial seatrial. The
SmartPilot will then automatically correct the compass.
CAUTION:
Failure to complete the deviation correction will impair your
SmartPilot’s performance on some compass headings.
The deviation correction procedure (commonly called “swinging the
compass”) involves turning your boat in slow circles so the SmartPilot can
determine the deviation and calculate any correction required. You must
carry out this procedure in calm conditions and preferably on flat water.
Automatic compass deviation correction
1. With the pilot in STANDBY mode, enter Seatrial Calibration as follows
(see the following illustration):
• press and hold standby for two seconds to enter Calibration mode
• when you see the DISPLAY CAL screen, press disp until you see the
SEATRIAL CAL screen
• press auto to enter Seatrial Calibration

press auto to start the compass swing)
The controller will display TURN BOAT indicating the start of the calibration process.
4. Start turning the boat in slow circles (with the boat’s speed below
2 knots). You will need to complete at least two circles, taking at least
2 minutes to complete each 360°:
• the display will show a TOO FAST message if you turn the boat too
quickly for the SmartPilot computer to correct the compass.
Apply less helm to turn in a larger circle
Note: If necessary, you can quit the correction process by pressing the
standby or disp. If you then want to repeat the deviation correction, return
to the SWING COMPASS screen.
5. Continue slowly turning the boat until the controller beeps and displays
the DEVIATION screen. This indicates that the SmartPilot has completed
the deviation correction.
Note: This screen shows the maximum deviation encountered over 360° (not
as an east/west value).
If the deviation figure exceeds 15° or the display shows no deviation value,
the compass is being affected by ferrous objects on your boat. You should
move the compass to a better location. Higher deviation figures are
acceptable on steel boats.
30
SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
Aligning the compass heading
1. Once the deviation is displayed, press disp to move to the Heading
Alignment page (ALIGN HDG).
2. Manually steer the boat on a steady course at a speed which enables you
to hold that course.
3. If you have a GPS connected to your SmartPilot:
• increase the boat speed to more than 3 knots
• press auto: the SmartPilot will then set the heading to agree with the
COG (course over ground) heading received from the GPS
• as many factors can cause a difference between heading and COG
(such as tides and leeway affecting the boat) you must then fine-tune
the heading alignment so it matches the boat’s steering compass or a
known transit bearing
4. Use -1, +1, -10 and +10 keys or the rotary control to adjust the displayed heading until it matches boat’s steering compass or a known transit bearing.
5. Press and hold standby for 2 seconds to exit Seatrial Calibration and
save the new compass settings.

Adjusting the heading alignment
After completing the initial compass calibration, you can make further
adjustments to the alignment without having to swing the compass again.
Although the compass calibration removes most of the alignment error,
small errors (a few degrees) will probably remain.
Ideally, you should check the heading reading against a number of known
headings, plot a deviation curve, and determine the heading alignment value
that will give the lowest average alignment error. You can then enter this
value on the Heading Alignment screen, as described above.
If the average heading error is more than 5°, you should perform the compass
deviation correction procedure again, circling more slowly and in more
favorable conditions.
Adjusting SmartPilot steering settings
The next stage of the seatrial is to set key parameters that affect the
SmartPilot’s steering characteristics.
•
•
using AutoLearn: S1G, S2G and S3G systems use AutoLearn – a selflearning calibration feature that automatically adjusts rudder gain,
counter rudder and AutoTrim to suit your boat
manual set-up: Non-G systems will require manual adjustment – see
page 34 for instructions.
AutoLearn
WARNING:
The AutoLearn process requires a significant amount of CLEAR SEA
SPACE in front of the boat. The SmartPilot will take the boat through a
number of zig-zag maneuvers until it has acquired enough data. Press

The only additional setting you may need to adjust is the response level (see
SmartPilot Operating Guide for more information).
34
SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
Manual set-up: Non-G Systems
If you have a Non-G system you need to manually adjust the rudder gain,
counter rudder and AutoTrim settings, based on your observations of the
boat’s performance under SmartPilot control.
Adjust these settings when motoring your boat at cruising speed. On sail
boats, repeat if necessary under sail to optimize the SmartPilot.
Checking SmartPilot operation
Before manually adjusting any of these settings, familiarize yourself with
basic SmartPilot operation:
1. Steer onto a compass heading and hold the course steady.
If necessary, steer the boat manually for a short time to check how the
boat steers.
2. Press auto to lock onto the current heading. The SmartPilot should hold
a constant heading in calm sea conditions.
3. Use the -1, +1, -10 and +10 keys or the rotary control to see how the
SmartPilot alters the course to port and starboard.
4. Press standby to return to manual steering.
Response level
The principal method of adjusting the performance of SmartPilot systems is
by changing the response level. This is the only user adjustment you should
need to make to the SmartPilot on a regular basis. This controls the
relationship between the SmartPilot’s course keeping accuracy and the
amount of helm/drive activity.
Whilst it is not necessary to set the response level at this stage, the testing of
other parameters requires the temporary adjustment of response settings.
Screen Text
Options
RESPONSE 1
The SmartPilot will gradually ignore repetitive boat movements and only react to true variations in course. This gives
the best compromise between power use and course keeping
RESPONSE 2
This setting provides tighter course keeping but will lead to
increased power consumption and drive unit activity
RESPONSE 3
This setting provides the tightest possible course keeping.
Chapter 2: SmartPilot Commissioning
35
To temporarily change the response level:
•
•
•
press -1 and +1 or resp to access the RESPONSE screen
use the -1 or +1 key or the up and down arrow keys to adjust the setting
press disp to confirm the change
Adjusting the rudder gain
Boats can vary widely in their response to helm, and by adjusting the rudder
gain you can change the SmartPilot’s steering characteristics. Rudder gain is
a measure of how much helm the SmartPilot applies to correct course errors
– higher settings mean more rudder is applied.
Complete the following test to determine whether the rudder gain is set
correctly:
1. Set RESPONSE to level 2 (see above)
2. Sail your boat at cruising speed in clear water:
• you will find it easier to recognize the steering response in calm sea
conditions where wave action does not mask steering performance
3. Press auto to enter Auto mode, then alter course by 40°:
•
if the rudder gain is adjusted correctly, the 40° course change should
result in a crisp turn followed by an overshoot of no more than 5°
• if the rudder gain setting is too high, the 40° course change will result
in a distinct overshoot of more than 5° and there may be a distinct ‘S’
in the course (A)
Correct this oversteer by reducing the rudder gain setting.
•
if the rudder gain is too low, the boat’s performance will be sluggish –
it will take a long time to make the 40° turn and there will be no overshoot (B)
Correct this understeer by increasing the rudder gain setting.

Adjusting the counter rudder
If you intend to use RESPONSE level 3 (the tightest possible course-keeping)
on a Non-G system, you will need to adjust the counter rudder.
Counter rudder is the amount of rudder the SmartPilot applies to try to
prevent the boat from yawing off course. Higher counter rudder settings
result in more rudder being applied.
To check the counter rudder setting
1. Set RESPONSE to level 3 (see page 35)
2. Sail your boat at cruising speed in clear water
3. Press auto to switch the SmartPilot to Auto mode, then make a 90°
course change:
• when gain and counter rudder are both set correctly, the boat performs
a smooth continuous turn with minimal overshoot
• if the counter rudder is too low, the boat will still overshoot
• if counter rudder is too high, the boat will ‘fight’ the turn and make a
series of short, sharp turns: this results in a very ‘mechanical’ feel as
the boat changes course

Access the COUNT RUD screen in Dealer Calibration. (see page 23)
Use the -1 or +1 keys or the rotary control to adjust the counter rudder.
Press and hold standby for 2 seconds to save the changes.
Press auto to check the SmartPilot performance in Auto mode.
Your SmartPilot is now calibrated and ready for use.
The only additional setting you may need to adjust is the response level (see
SmartPilot Operating Guide for more information).
Further adjustments (Non-G)
Over time you may need to repeat these adjustments using a range of sea
conditions and headings to achieve good overall performance.
You may also need to adjust the AutoTrim setting. AutoTrim determines how
quickly the SmartPilot applies ‘standing helm’ to correct for trim changes
(caused, for example, by changes in the wind load on the sails or
superstructure, or an imbalance of engines).
Gain experience with your SmartPilot before attempting to adjust the
AutoTrim setting. On sail boats you can only evaluate the effect of AutoTrim
while under sail.
Increasing the AutoTrim level reduces the time the SmartPilot takes to get
back onto the correct course, but makes the boat less stable:
•
•
if the SmartPilot gives unstable course keeping and the boat ‘snakes’
around the desired course, decrease the AutoTrim level
if the SmartPilot hangs off course for excessive periods of time, increase
the AutoTrim level
If you need to adjust AutoTrim, go up one level at a time and use the lowest
acceptable value. The possible settings range from OFF (no trim correction)
to 4 (fastest trim correction). To adjust the AutoTrim:
Access the AUTOTRIM screen in Dealer Calibration.
Use the -1 or +1 keys or the rotary control to adjust the AutoTrim level.
Press and hold standby for 2 seconds to save the changes.
Press auto to check the SmartPilot performance in Auto mode.

Chapter 3: Adjusting SmartPilot Settings
This chapter explains all of the calibration settings you can adjust on the
SmartPilot. You will have adjusted many of these settings when
commissioning the system, and they should not require further adjustment.
Complete the procedures described in Chapter 2 before adjusting any
calibration settings.
3.1 Calibration basics
Calibration groups
The Calibration mode has 4 main calibration groups:
Display Calibration (DISPLAY CAL)
The items in Display Calibration affect the individual controller. They are
stored in the controller and do not affect any other controllers connected
through SeaTalk.
You can adjust the Display Calibration settings as often as necessary – for
example, to add or change information displayed on data pages.
User Calibration (USER CAL)
The items in User Calibration vary according to the Vessel Type you have
selected in Dealer Calibration.
You will probably need to access User Calibration on a fairly regular basis to
adjust SmartPilot settings in response to changing conditions.Details on User
Calibration can be found in the SmartPilot Controller Operation Manual.
Seatrial Calibration (SEATRIAL CAL)
The Seatrial Calibration group is specifically designed for use during the
initial seatrial (see page 27 of Chapter 2 for full details).
You should not need to access Seatrial Calibration during normal operation.
Dealer Calibration (DEALER CAL)
The Dealer Calibration group includes items that have a significant impact
on operation and can affect your boat’s safety.
After you have completed the initial installation and seatrial, you should not
normally need to alter the Dealer Calibration values. The items in Dealer
Calibration vary according to the Vessel Type you have selected.

Rudder gain
Rudder gain is a measure of how much helm the SmartPilot will apply to
correct course errors. The higher the setting the more rudder will be applied.
The default rudder gain is set during the initial seatrial:
•
•
S1G, S2G and S3G systems will adjust the rudder gain automatically during AutoLearn (see page 31)
Non-G systems will require manual adjustment of rudder gain (see page

AutoTrim
The AutoTrim setting determines the rate at which the SmartPilot applies
‘standing helm’ to correct for trim changes caused by varying wind loads on
the sails or superstructure.
The default AutoTrim is set during commissioning:
•
•
S1G, S2G and S3G systems will adjust the AutoTrim setting automatically during the AutoLearn (see page 31)
Non-G systems will require manual adjustment of AutoTrim (see page
37) after the initial seatrial
If you need to change the setting, increase the AutoTrim one level at a time
and use the lowest acceptable value:
•
•
•
decrease the AutoTrim level if the SmartPilot gives unstable course keeping or excessive drive activity with a change in the heel angle
increase the AutoTrim level if the SmartPilot reacts slowly to a heading
change due to a change in the heel angle
if the AutoTrim level is too high, the boat will be less stable and snake
around the desired course
Note: S1G, S2G and S3G systems have a ‘FastTrim’ feature within AutoTrim. Select AUTO TRIM OFF to turn off FastTrim as well as AutoTrim.

RESPONSE
Range = 1 to 9
level 1 minimizes the amount of pilot activity. This conserves
power, but may compromise short-term course-keeping accuracy
levels 4 to 6 should give good course keeping with crisp,
well controlled turns under normal operating conditions
level 9 gives the tightest course keeping and greatest rudder
activity (and power consumption). This can lead to a rough
passage in open waters as the SmartPilot may ‘fight’ the sea.
Non-G systems

RESPONSE 1
AutoSeastate on (Automatic deadband)
The SmartPilot will gradually ignore repetitive boat movements and only react to true variations in course. This provides
the best compromise between power consumption and

Chapter 4: Fault Finding & Maintenance
All Raymarine products are designed to provide many years of trouble-free
operation. We also put them through comprehensive testing and quality
assurance procedures before shipping.
This chapter provides information about identifying problems, interpreting
alarm messages, maintaining your SmartPilot and obtaining product
support.
If a fault occurs with your SmartPilot, use the fault finding tables in this
section to help identify the problem and provide a solution.If you cannot
resolve the problem yourself, refer to the product support information.
4.1 Fault finding
SYMPTOM
POSSIBLE CAUSE and SOLUTION
Display is blank
No power – check the power and SeaTalk fuses on the
computer, then check main fuse/circuit breaker.
Data page display shows stationary dashes
The control unit is not receiving necessary data from
other instruments – check cabling.
Display shows rotating dashes
Compass calibration in progress
Displayed compass heading
does not agree with the boat’s
compass
You have not calibrated the compass. Carry out the deviation and alignment procedures
No display bar on the display
Rudder bar switched off in Display Calibration – select
RUDD BAR or STEER BAR
Rudder bar display moves in
opposite direction to rudder
Reverse the red and green rudder position sensor connections at the SmartPilot computer
Boat turns slowly and takes a
long time to come onto course
Rudder gain too low. Complete AutoLearn or increase
gain setting.
Boat overshoots when turning
onto a new course
Rudder gain too high. Complete AutoLearn or decrease
gain setting.
The SmartPilot ‘hunts’ when
trying to position the rudder
Adjust the RUDD DAMP setting (see page 50). Increase
the damping one level at a time until the autopilot stops
hunting, and always use the lowest acceptable value
You cannot enter Seatrial Calibration

SmartPilot Commissioning Guide
SYMPTOM
POSSIBLE CAUSE and SOLUTION
The SmartPilot appears to be
Northerly/Southerly heading correction (AutoAdapt) is
unstable on Northerly headings not set up (see page 55). [Does not apply to S1G, S2G
in the Northern hemisphere (or and S3G systems.]
Southerly headings in the
Southern hemisphere)
The SmartPilot will not ‘talk’ to
other SeaTalk instruments
Cabling problem – make sure all the cables are connected properly.
Position information not
received
Navigator not transmitting the correct position data.
Check navigator and cabling to the SmartPilot
Non-Raymarine 24V autopilots
clutch slipping
Check that the clutch fuse is in the correct position. E.g.
24 V position for 24 V clutches.
When holding a constant course The Autopilot is connected to a Raymarine Pathfinder
in STANDBY mode, the heading unit with the “Bridge NMEA Heading” option switched
continuously changes
on. Disable this feature on the Pathfinder unit.
SmartPilot alarm messages
When the SmartPilot detects a fault or failure on the system, it will activate
one of the alarm messages listed in the following table.
•
•
Unless otherwise stated, you should respond to the alarm by pressing
standby to clear the alarm and return to manual control, before you
attempt to resolve the problem.
In some situations, the SmartPilot will raise more than one alarm. When
you have dealt with the first alarm, it will display the next alarm.
ALARM MESSAGE
POSSIBLE CAUSE and SOLUTION
AUTO RELEASE
Possible fault with rudder position sensor – check connections.
OR
Stern (I/O) drives only – you have taken manual control of steering with
AutoRelease on. The alarm cancels automatically after 10 seconds.
CURRENT LIMIT
Serious drive failure – the drive is taking too much current due to shortcircuit or jamming. Check the drive unit.
DRIVESTOP
The autopilot is unable to turn the rudder (this occurs if the weather
load on helm is too high, or if the rudder position sensor has passed
beyond the preset rudder limits or rudder end-stops).
Check drive and rudder position sensor.
Chapter 4: Fault Finding & Maintenance
61
ALARM MESSAGE
POSSIBLE CAUSE and SOLUTION
LOW BATT
Supply voltage has dropped below acceptable limits.
To respond to a Low Battery alarm:
• press standby to clear the alarm and return to hand steering
• start the engine to recharge the battery
LRN FAIL 1, 2 or 4
AutoLearn not completed successfully.
Failure codes:
1 = AutoLearn has not been carried out (default setting)
2 = AutoLearn failed, usually due to manual interruption
4 = AutoLearn failed, probably due to drive or compass failure
Repeat the AutoLearn procedure.
MOT POW SWAPPED
Motor cables are connected to power terminals (and power cables are
connected to motor terminals) at the computer. Turn off power and
swap over connections.
NO DATA
Caused by any of the following situations:
• the compass is not connected
• the autopilot is in Wind Vane mode and it has not received wind
angle data for 30 seconds
• the autopilot is in Track mode and:
• the autopilot is not receiving SeaTalk navigation data, or
• the position sensor is receiving a low strength signal – this will clear
when the signal improves
Check the connections to the compass and/or wind instrument and/or
navigator.
Note: The autopilot stops adjusting the heading as soon as it loses
data.
NO PILOT
The controller is not receiving data from the SmartPilot computer.
Check connections and check the SmartPilot computer is switched on.
RG FAIL
GyroPlus yaw sensor has failed:
• If you have a S1G, S2G and S3G system with internal GyroPlus sensor – call a Raymarine service agent.
If you have a Non-G computers with external GyroPlus yaw sensor –
check the sensor and connections, then call a Raymarine service agent.
SEATALK and FAIL 1 or 2
SeaTalk data problem on one of the SeaTalk lines – check connections.
STLK FAIL
The control unit cannot transmit data to the SeaTalk system. Make sure
all SeaTalk cables are connected properly.

4.2 Maintenance
All Raymarine products are designed to provide many years of trouble-free
operation. We also put them through comprehensive testing and quality
assurance procedures before shipping.
EMC, servicing and safety guidelines
•
•
•
•
•
Raymarine equipment should be serviced only by authorized Raymarine
service technicians. They will ensure that service procedures and
replacement parts used will not affect performance. There are no user serviceable parts in any Raymarine product.
Some products generate high voltages: never handle the cables/connectors when power is being supplied 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 minimize 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 EMC-related problems 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.
Product support
Raymarine products are supported by a worldwide network of distributors
and Authorized Service Representatives. If you encounter any difficulties
with this product, please contact either your national distributor, or your
service representative, or the Raymarine Technical Services Call Center.
Refer to the back cover for contact details.
