Chapter 1: Installation
1.1 Installing the Speed Sensor
Please refer to the instructions provided in speed sensor package for
complete installation details and recommendations.
These instructions should be read thoroughly before any attempt is
made to install the speed sensor.
General Points to Remember
The speed sensor should be installed so that it is:
• Ahead of the propellers.
• At least 150mm (6in) from the keel and ideally forward of the keel.
D587
• Near the centre line of the vessel.
• Clear of all through hull fittings and projections.
There should also be sufficient space above the sensor to allow the
paddle wheel assembly to be removed.
Alternative active transducers are available from your Autohelm
dealer. The range includes: bronze through hull speed and a transom
mount triducer.

1.2 Installing the Depth Sensor
Procedures for fitting the sensor to the hull of your vessel are
supplied in the sensor package. Please read these instructions
thoroughly before attempting to install the unit.
General Points to remember
A warning label covers the face of the depth sensor. This label
should be removed before use and the face of the sensor “wetted”
with a household detergent.
The sensor should be installed so that it is:
• near the centreline of the vessel (within 10° of the vertical)
10 Max
D630
• ahead of the propellers and forward of the keel
• clear of all other through hull fittings or projections

1.3 Installation of the Data Processing Unit
The cables from the data processor are 2m (6ft) in length. Therefore,
a 3-way SeaTalk connector block must be sited within 4m (12ft) of
the transducer.
Use the 19mm (3/4in) self-tapping screws to mount the processor
vertically or horizontally to a springer or beam.
D2345-1
Note: Position both the data processor and the SeaTalk connector block
clear of any bilge water.
1.4 Connection to SeaTalk
Plug the free end of the data processor cable into any 3-way
connector block.

1.5 Triducer Installation
There are two triducers available, one for transom mounting and a
second, bronze unit, for through hull mounting. Triducers provide
speed, depth and temperature information and comprise of two data
processors and a triducer housing.
Please refer to the instructions provided in the triducer package for
details on how to install the triducer housing.

Data Processing Unit PCB Connections
If it is not possible to install the transducers without disconnecting
the sensor from the data processor, make sure that the wires are
reconnected to the correct terminals as shown.

Chapter 2: EMC and Servicing Guidelines
2.1 Important information
All Autohelm equipment and accessories are designed to the best
industry standards for use in the leisure marine environment.
Their design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) standards, but good
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.
2.2 Installation
To avoid the risk of operating problems, all Autohelm equipment
and cables connected to it should be:
• At least 1m (3 feet) 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 2m (7ft).
• More than 2m (6ft) 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 should be supplied from a different battery than the
one used for engine start. Voltage drops below 10V in the power
supply to our products can cause the equipment to reset. This will
not damage the equipment, but will cause the loss of some
information and can change the operating mode.
• Genuine Autohelm cables should be used at all times. Cutting and
rejoining these cables can compromise EMC performance and so
should 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 has to be removed during installation it
must be reassembled in the same position.

2.3 Check Before Going to Sea
• Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it
is not affected by radio transmissions, engine starting etc..
• 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 can lead to it resetting, or
momentarily may result in faulty operation.
2.4 Servicing and Safety
• Autohelm equipment should be serviced only by authorised
Autohelm service engineers. They will ensure that service
procedures and replacement parts used will not affect performance.
There are no user serviceable parts in any Autohelm product.
• Some products generate high voltages, and so never handle the
cables/connectors when power is being supplied to the equipment.
• Always report any EMC related problem to your nearest Autohelm
dealer. We will use any such information to improve our quality
standards.
