Changing a paddlewheel
For the following sequence refer to Figure 1: ST60 Speed transducer.
1. Use the new paddlewheel shaft from the spare parts kit to push out the old
shaft (1) approximately 5mm (1/4inch).
2. Grasp the end of the old shaft (1) with pliers and pull it straight out, releasing the
paddlewheel (2).

3. Place the new paddlewheel (2) in the insert assembly cavity.
IMPORTANT: The flat surface of the paddewheel blades must face the
direction of the arrow on top of the insert assembly.
When the insert assembly is installed in the housing, the arrow on the top insert cap
and the water exposed flat surface of the housing should both face the front of the vessel.
4. Tap the new shaft (1) into place until it is flush with the housing, being careful
that the shaft enters the centre hole of the paddlewheel bearing. Failure to align
the bearing before inserting the shaft can result in bearing damage.
Changing t he valve assembly
The valve assembly should only be changed when the vessel is out of water.
The transducer incorporates a self-sealing valve which minimizes the flow of water
into the vessel should the insert assembly be removed. When the insert assembly is
removed, the curved vane is activated is activated by both a spring and water
pressure, pushing the vane upward to seal the opening. The valve assembly is held in
place with a corrosion resistant snap ring.
Should the valve mechanism fail carry out the following (refer to Figure 1: ST60
Speed transducer).
1. Remove the snap ring (5), using a screwdriver to pry the end of the ring free.
2. Slide the valve assembly upward, out of the housing.
Note: The vane retainer pin is a loose slip-fit and may slide out when the
assembly is removed from the housing.
3. The insert assembly can be reinserted into the housing and used conventionally,
without the valve assembly.
4. To install a valve assembly, insert it into the housing (vane tongue pointing
downward). Install the snap ring (5), making certain that it locks into its groove
in the housing wall.

Chapt er 2. ST60 Fluxgat e compass t ransducer
Funct ional t est
Disconnect the Fluxgate from the Autopilot and check continuity as follows:
Cable colour Resist ance
Screen t o blue < 10 ohms
Red t o green < 5 ohms
Red t o yellow < 5 ohms
Red t o screen Open circuit
Magnet ic deviat ion
The Fluxgate Compass requires careful siting if optimum Autopilot performance is
to be acheived. The SeaTalk electronics is able to correct the compass for most
deviating magnetic fields present when the linearisation procedure is carried out.
Any further deviation, introduced after linearisation, will introduce an error between
the Fluxgate and the ships compass. This can be removed by carrying out the
linearisation again. If the displayed deviation is greater than +/ 15 degrees the
Fluxgate should be resited.
Note: The linearisation procedure should always be carried out if the Fluxgate has
been exchanged, removed or moved from its original mounting position.

Chapt er 3. ST60 Rudder reference t ransducer
Descript ion
The Rudder Reference transducer (M81105) contains a single-turn 5k ohm plastic
potentiometer to provide the autopilot with rudder position information. When the
unit is replaced, correct installation is vital to achieve optimum steering
performance. Transducer arm movement is limited to +/- 60 degrees. Care must be
taken to make sure that the arm is opposite the cable entry when the rudder is
amidships. Failure to do this could result in damage to the rudder reference
transducer if the arm is driven onto its stops by the steering system.
Faulty rudder reference transducers should be replaced as a complete unit.
Funct ional Test
Disconnect the rudder reference transducer from the autopilot and check for
continuity.

Long arm mast head t ransducer
On the Long Arm Masthead Transducer Unit (D225) the masthead arm (carbon
fibre) assembly is not available as a spare.
Funct ional t est
The operation of the Masthead Mounted Windvane can be checked using the
following procedure:
1. Connect +8V dc to the red core and 0V to the screen.
2. Connect a digital volt meter across the screen and the green core.
3. Rotate vane head through 360 degrees and check that the meter reading
oscillates sinusoidally. The maximum reading must be between 6V and 5.5V.
The minimumreading must be between 2V and 2.5V.
4. Repeat section 3 with the meter connected across the blue core and screen.
The anemometer transducer can not easily be tested and a replacement pod should
be fitted if suspected to be faulty.
