The ST50 Plus Wind instrument features a 360 degree apparent wind scale
and a sensitive yet stable needle drive that delivers accurate information under
even the most demanding conditions
The unit can be configured to operate as a master or a dedicated repeater unit
When used as a master the unit displays data received directly from the
masthead transducer whereas repeater mode displays wind information
already on the SeaTalk bus
These instruments also incorporate a security feature to protect units
mounted in vulnerable areas such as the cockpit helm or mast
Thank you for purchasing an Autohelm product May we take this opportunity
to wish you years of trouble free 1 Control Head Installation

The ST50 plus Wind is designed for above or below deck installation
where it is
l Easily read by the helmsman
l Protected against physical damage
l At least 230mm 9infrom a compass
l At least 500mm 2Oin from radio receiving equipment
l Accessible from behind for ease of installation and cable running
To prevent moisture forming on the display window the unit
a small vent in the cable boss Therefore the
control head must be sited where the rear case is protected from
The rear case is fitted with a foam gasket to form a watertight seal between Bracket Mounting
the instrument and the selected installation face
The ST50 Plus Wind can as an alternative be bracket mounted using the
Autohelm Mounting Kii
Because the instrument breathes through the vent in the rear case this bracket

1 Make sure ibatthe selected location is clean smooth and flat
Flush Mounting
2 Apply the seffadhesiie template supplied to the selected location and
A flush mounting kii is available for installations where a flush mount is required
mark the centres for the fixing studs 21 and the cable boss 1
or more desirable Full installation instructions are provided with the kit
3 Drilltio 4mm532in clearance holes for the fixing studs 2 through the
bulkhead Remove the template
4 Cut the clearance hole for the cable boss 1 using a 50mm 2irr diameter
5 Screw the two fixing studs 2 into the control head
6 Pass the SeaTalk cable and transducer tails through the cableboss 1

Separated instruments can be connected using one of the range of SeaTalk
Extension Cable These cables are supplied with a SeaTalk connector fitted to
each end A junction box can be used to join the cable if it is cut for easier
routing or shortening
if preferred any 2 core screened cable conforming the following
may be used instead of the SeaTalk cable
l 22 AWG 2 core screened cable with a minimum copper area of 05mm2

The ST50 Plus range of instruments is equipped with a security code feature
called CODE Lock to protect your system against possible theft Entered
using the keypad on digital instruments this is a four figure number of your
CAL choice that can be entered at every powerup or transmitted
automatically on the SeaTalk bus when there is a secure belowdecks master
The analogue ST50 Plus Wind will only respond to transmissions on the
D SeaTalk bus a security code cannot be entered from this unit Once a security
code has been transmitted to this unit itwill not operate until the correct code

6 Calibration
The ST50 Plus Wind must be calibrated before it is used for navigational
purposes Also as it leaves the factory the instrument is setwith units in knots
zero wind angle off set and damping set at 4 seconds These settings can be
adjusted as described in the following sections
cThpterS Calibration
Windspeed Unit Selection
1 Press and hold CAL until Ul Knots or U2 is displayed
Windvane Alignment
Before the unit is used for navigational purposes the masthead transducer
must be accurately aligned to thevessel Before this procedure is carried out
the windvane should be linearised as follows
1 Powerup lhe ST50 Plus Wind instrument
2 Tumthevessel through two complete circles making sure that the
windvane remains in line with the wind the instrument will linearise the windvane
Alignment 2 Press CALwithin 8 seconds to change the windspeed
units selection
1 Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds until CO is displayed by the LCD
3 After 8 seconds the wind instrument returns to normal operation
2 Press to move the pointer to the correct wind angle
l Press once to move the pointer by 1 degree
l Press for 1 second to move the pointer by 10 NOk
The LCD will now display the applied correction
3 Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds to exit and store windvane alignment

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
