SYSTEM INTRODUCTION
H3000 is the successor to the leading Hydra 2000 and Hercules 2000
instrument and Pilot systems from B&G.
Hydra and Hercules 2000 and its predecessors have been used and
depended upon by the world’s serious cruising and racing fraternity for
fifty years, during which time the systems have been constantly evolving
to provide the most dependable instrument and autopilot systems
available.
At the heart of every H3000 System is the Central Processor Unit (CPU).
Dependent upon your system choice, this will either have Hydra,
Hercules, or the Hercules Performance software enabled.
The Central Main Processor integrates raw data from sensors and makes
them available on a choice of displays anywhere in the yacht.
The modular design allows you to progress from a standard system,
adding new units or software as required.
This manual describes the standard system and then describes how the
system can be expanded.
The system is connected together by the Fastnet and Simnet high-speed
communication networks, which handles all of the data that travels
between devices: including the CPU, analogue displays, Graphical
Display (GFD), Pilot Display (GPD), Full Function Display (FFD),
20/20, and 40/40 digital displays.
These combined with the wind speed and angle, compass heading, boat
speed and depth sensors make up the standard system.

SENSORS
Paddle Wheel - Speed Sensor
The Paddle-Wheel Speed Sensor is designed for both cruising and racing
yachts and consists of a paddle wheel, which protrudes through the hull
via a housing.
To enable regular cleaning of the paddle wheel, the housing is provided
with a self-closing valve, which closes automatically when the sensor is
retracted.
The H3000 CPU can be configured to monitor two paddle wheel sensors
simultaneously.
Depth Sensor
This unit can be either a removable through hull unit, or moulded in-hull
for reduced drag. The depth datum is fully adjustable and can be set to
either the waterline, the bottom of the keel or from the transducer.
Masthead Unit - Wind Speed and Angle
The Masthead Unit measures the wind speed and angle at the masthead.
A choice of units are available; Four sizes of Vertical Masthead Unit,
including some available in ‘Ocean Specification’ for special applications
and custom projects. A standard 450mm (17.5”) horizontal unit is also
available.

The Halcyon 2000 compass is a high performance electronic fluxgate
compass. It is designed to connect to H3000 systems through the B&G
Fastnet network.
The Halcyon 2000 compass has the ability to ‘learn’ the magnetic effect
of the vessel on the compass and automatically apply deviation
corrections.
22
HB-3000
_________________________________________________________ H3000 Owners Handbook
Halcyon Gyro-Stabilised Compass
The Halcyon Gyro-Stabilised Compass (HGSC) is a high performance,
solid-state compass that provides high quality heading information
through the use of 3-axis rate gyros to correct for the motion of your
yacht. It also provides high accuracy Heel and Trim data.

Mast Rotation Sensor
This is essential if your mast rotates, otherwise the wind data will become
inaccurate as the mast rotates away from the centreline. The addition of
this unit gives two new functions, the Wind Angle to the Mast
(W/A MAST) and Mast Angle (MAST ANG) which is then used to
correct the masthead wind angle for mast rotation.
Rudder Angle Sensor
The addition of a Rudder Angle can be very useful, indicating how the
yacht is balanced / trimmed.
Barometric Pressure Sensor
x Measures the atmospheric pressure, allowing the CPU to record
atmospheric pressure changes over varying periods of time.

GFD Menu Structure
The central concept to the operation of the GFD is the menu system; once
this is grasped operation very quickly becomes familiar.
The idea of structured layers of menus is seen everywhere in modern
software, and regular mobile phone / computer users should have a head
start.
The principle is that at any one level there is a set of choices that you can
scroll through until you find the one you want. Having found the correct
menu entry, it is then selected by pressing the Enter or right key the GFD
then displays the next menu down.
Here you once again scroll through the available options until you find
and select your choice. In many cases this is as far as you will need to go,
i.e. to choose a function for display.
To complete some actions such as entering a calibration value, switching
on an alarm, and so on, you will need to navigate the GFD menus.
Each menu choice selected will be in CAPITALS.
The page description / contents will be in lower case.

You can preset alarm parameters to trigger a warning when the set limits
are reached. This will flash a message on the display to warn you. An
audible alarm can also be fitted to raise a sound alarm. Any alarm can be
switched on or off.
There are 3 types of alarm. Hi, Low and Sector. The sector alarm is
activated if you move outside an agreed sector angle.
When an alarm is on and that alarm is triggered it will send a warning
message to all GFD’s and make all FFD’s flash. If you select ignore then
the alarm will not be displayed on that individual unit, but will continue
to be shown on all other displays.
If you select silent then the warning screen disappears on all displays.
The alarm will become active again once you move back within the safe
parameter.
Each time the alarm zone is reached it will trigger the alarm. You must
set the alarm to off to deactivate it.

CALIBRATION
SETUP X CALIBRATION
It cannot be over stressed the importance of calibrating the system
properly, in both the initial stages of the installation and operation, and
throughout the life of the system.
Calibration is an ongoing process and is something you must be aware of
each time you go sailing. This is particularly relevant of the true wind
calibration, where constant refining will pay huge dividends in accuracy.
To this end the process has been simplified as far as possible, so that all
you require for accurate instrument data is some background knowledge
together with a few simple techniques.
Note: Information regarding calibrating your H3000 System can be found
on page 48.
DAMPING
SETUP X DAMPING
Another important facility that you need to be constantly aware of is the
damping available on certain functions. This allows you to filter signal
noise on the function when in unstable or rough conditions.
HB-3000
39
H3000 Owners Handbook________________________________________________________________________
The damping works by applying a filter over a time period; the more you
increase this time period, the smoother the data readings will be, but the
longer it will take to see the effect of any change. Similarly the lower the
time period the greater the jumps you will see in the numbers, but the
response to any change will be faster.
DYNAMIC DAMPING
Dynamic Damping adjusts your system to deliver the most accurate and
real-time information, i.e. when on a beat, it is essential that the wind
angle information is accurate but steady with most ‘noise filtered out,
however, when tacking, data needs to be more real-time. With Dynamic
Damping, the damping value applied will reduce to almost zero during
conditions when the data is changing rapidly and then settles again after
the tack.
The Damping value is set (in seconds) to a steady state value, the
Dynamic Damping is set to a value between 0 (off) and 10 (maximum),
the higher the value, the more sensitive the function is to rates of change,
and the faster the damping value is lowered.
This allows the effects of the change to be more readily seen on the
instruments. As the rate of change of the function reduces, so the
damping value is allowed to rise to the preset Damping Value to ensure
signal noise is filtered out of the data.
Damping should not be confused with the update rate which is the
number of times per second that the function value is sent to the display.
The update rate is fixed for all the functions.
