Safety Information
Passage making under autopilot control is an enjoyable experience
that can if you are not careful lead to the relaxation of the
permanent watch A permanent watch MUST be maintained no
matter how clear the sea may appear to be
Remember a large ship can travel two miles in five minutes just
the time it takes to make a cup of coffee
The following rules should always be observed
Maintain a permanent watch and regularly check all around for
other vessels and obstacles to navigation no matter how clear the
sea may appear a dangerous situation can develop rapidly
Maintain an accurate record of the vessels position either by use of
a radio navigation receiver or visual bearings
Maintain a continuous plot of position on a current chart Ensure the
locked autopilot heading steers you 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
radio navigation receiver always maintain a log and make regular
positional plots Radio navigation signals can produce significant
errors under some circumstances and the autopilot cannot detect this
situation
Make sure that all members of crew are familiar with the procedures
to disengage the autopilot
Your Raymarine autopilot will add a new dimension to your boating
enjoyment However it is the of the skipper to ensure
the safety of the vessel at all times by careful observance of these
basic rules

vessels current heading differ for more than 20 seconds and by
more than the alarm angle set in calibration the factory default
is 20
1 To cancel the off course alarm press STANDBY to return to hand
steering
2 Make sure your vessel is not carrying too much sail or the sails are
badly balanced Significant improvements in course keeping can
usually be obtained by improving sail balance
Operating Hints
Making Major Course Changes
It is sound seamanship to make major course changes only when
steering manually
Manual course changes ensure that obstructions or other vessels are
cleared properly and due account taken of the changed wind and sea
conditions on the new heading prior to engaging the autopilot
Course Changes Under Autopilot Control
It is important to understand the effect of sudden trim changes on
steering performance When a sudden trim change occurs due for
example to weather helm or sail imbalance there will be a delay
before the automatic trim applies rudder to restore the locked
heading This correction can take up to one minute
Large course changes which change the apparent wind direction
can produce large trim changes In these situations the autopilot will
not immediately assume the new automatic heading and will only
settle onto course when the automatic trim has been fully
ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
To eliminate this problem the following procedure can be adopted
for large course changes
1 Note the required new heading
2 Select STANDBY and steer manually
3 Bring the vessel onto the new heading
4 Select AUTO and let the vessel settle onto course
5 Bring the vessel to the final course with 1 increments
Gusty Conditions
In gusty conditions the course may tend to wander slightly
particularly if the sails are badly balanced Significant
improvements in course keeping can always be obtained by
improving sail balance Bear in mind the following important
points
Do not allow the yacht to heel over excessively
Ease the mainsheet traveller to leeward to reduce heeling and
weather helm
If necessary reef the mainsail a little early
It is also advisable whenever possible to avoid sailing with the
wind dead astern in very strong winds and large seas
Ideally the wind should be brought at least 30 away from a dead
run and in severe conditions it may be advisable to remove the
mainsail altogether and sail under headsail only
Provided these simple precautions are taken the autopilot will be
able to maintain competent control in gale force conditions
24 Manual Mode

31 Operation in Track Mode
Track mode is used to maintain a track between two waypoints
created on a GPS Decca or Loran navigation system The autopilot
will then compute any course changes to keep your boat on track
automatically compensating for tidal streams and leeway
The autopilot can receive cross track error the distance your vessel
is from a planned track from a SeaTalk navigation instrument or
chartplotter
Track mode is selected by pressing the TRACK key but can only be
selected in Auto mode You can return to either Auto or Standby
from Track as follows
Press AUTO to leave Track mode and return to Auto mode
Press STANDBY to leave Track mode and return to manual
steering
Initiating Track Mode
When initiating Track mode the track can be acquired in one of two
ways
Automatic acquisition when cross track error and bearing to
waypoint data are available
Manual acquisition when cross track error is the only available
data
Chapter 3 Advanced Operation 15
Automatic Acquisition
Automatic acquisition can only be achieved if the pilot is receiving
cross track error and bearing to waypoint information via SeaTalk
or NMEA 0183 It is initiated as follows
1 Bring the vessel to within 01nm of track
2 Press AUTO
3 Press TRACK to enter Track mode with the current locked heading
displayed
After a short delay for data acquisition the Waypoint Advance
alarm will sound and the display will show the planned bearing to
waypoint alternating with the direction in which the boat will turn

Manual Acquisition
For manual track acquisition when cross track error is the only data
available
1 Steer the vessel to within 01nm of track
2 Bring the heading to within 5 of the bearing to the next waypoint
3 Press AUTO
4 Press TRACK to enter Track mode
The display shows the cross track error and the locked pilot heading
Note At low speeds the effect of tidal streams is far more significant than it
is at higher speeds Providing the tidal flow is less than 35 of the
vessels speed no noticeable difference should occur in the
performance of Track mode However extra care should be taken
during manual acquisition as follows
Ensure that the vessel is as close as possible to track and the
direction made good over the ground is as close as possible to the
direction of the next waypoint before selecting Track mode
Make positive positional checks at regular intervals especially if
navigational hazards are close by
Chapter 3 Advanced Operation 17
Cross Track Error
Cross track error XTE is the distance between the current position
and a planned route This is displayed in nautical miles nm statute
miles SM or kilometres and is taken directly from your The Large Cross Track Error alarm sounds if the cross track exceeds
03nm
LARGE
DXXXX1
The direction of the error is identified as Pt port or Stb

To cancel the alarm press STANDBY to return to hand steering or
AUTO to return to Auto mode
Note If the Large Cross Track Error alarm sounds it is usually an indication
that the cross tide is too great for the vessels current speed
18 ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
Tidal Stream Compensation
Under most conditions Track mode will hold the selected track to
within 005nm 300ft or better
The autopilot takes account of vessel speed when computing course
changes to ensure optimum performance over a wide range of vessel
speeds If speed data is available the autopilot uses the measured
vessel speed Otherwise the Speed Over Ground SOG or specified
cruise speed is used depending on the calibration setting see
Dealer Setup in Chapter 5

Waypoint Arrival and Advance
If your navigation receiver transmits valid NMEA waypoint number
and bearing to waypoint data it is possible to advance from one
waypoint to the next by simply pressing TRACK
Arrival
As the vessel passes the target waypoint the navigation receiver
should select manually or the next target waypoint
The autopilot detects the new target waypoint number sounds the
Waypoint Advance alarm and displays the Waypoint Advance
information This display shows the new bearing to waypoint and
the direction the boat will turn to acquire the new track
To accept the new target waypoint press 3 Advanced Operation 19
Skipping a Waypoint SeaTalk Navigators Only
If you wish to advance to the next waypoint before you have arrived
at the target waypoint press TRACK for 1 second The Waypoint
Advance information for the next waypoint is displayed
Advance
While the waypoint advance alarm is sounding Track mode is
suspended and the autopilot maintains the current boat heading
1 Check that it is safe to turn onto the new track
2 Press the TRACK key This will cancel the waypoint arrival alarm
and turn the boat towards the next waypoint
Unless the Waypoint Advance is accepted in the above manner the
alarm will continue to sound and the current heading will be
maintained
Dodges
Full control is still available from the keypad when the autopilot is in
Track mode
Initiating a Dodge Manoeuvre
In track mode dodge manoeuvres are accomplished by simply
selecting the desired course change using the course change keys
1 1 10 or 10
Cancelling a Dodge Manoeuvre
Once the hazard has been avoided the course change selected for
the dodge manoeuvre should be cancelled by selecting an equal
course change in the opposite direction
Note Provided the vessel remains within 01nm of track there is no need to
steer back towards the track
Safety
Passage making in Track mode removes the chores of compensating
for wind and tidal drift and will aid precise navigation However it
is important to maintain an accurate log with regular plots
Position Confirmation at the Start of a Passage
At the start of a passage you must always confirm the fix given by
the position transducer using an easily identifiable fixed object
Check for fixed positional errors and compensate for them
20 ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
Verifying Computed Positions
Verify the computed position with a dead reckoned position
calculated from the average course steered and the distance logged
Plot Frequency
In open water plots should be at least hourly
In confined waters or when potential hazards are near plots should
be more frequent
Local variations in radio signal quality and changes in the tidal
stream will produce deviations from the desired track
Setting Waypoints
When setting waypoints remember that deviations will occur
Thoroughly check along each track
Check up to 05nm each side of the track to ensure that there are no
hazards within the zone
General
The use of track mode will enable accurate track keeping even in
complex navigational situations However it cannot remove the
of the skipper to ensure the safety of his vessel at all
times by careful navigation and frequent position checks
32 Operation in Vane Mode WindTrim
Vane mode also known as WindTrim allows the autopilot to
maintain a course relative to an apparent wind angle It uses wind
trim to eliminate the effects of turbulence and short term wind
variations and provides smooth precise performance under Vane
mode operation with minimal power consumption
Vane mode uses the fluxgate compass as the primary heading
reference and as changes in the apparent wind angle occur the
locked compass heading is adjusted to maintain the original
apparent wind angle
To use Vane mode the autopilot must receive wind information
from one of the following sources
SeaTalk Wind instrument connected to the autopilot via SeaTalk
NMEA wind information
Raymarine wind vane connected to a SeaTalk interface box
Chapter 3 Advanced Operation 21
Selecting Vane Mode
Vane mode can be selected from either Standby or Auto modes as
follows
1 Steady the vessel onto a heading at which the apparent wind angle is
close to angle you require
2 Press STANDBY and AUTO together to select Vane mode and
lock the current apparent wind angle
stdby auto WIND
145P
DXXXX1
The locked heading is displayed in large characters The locked
apparent wind angle is displayed above the heading with an P port
or S starboard direction indicator
The boat heading is adjusted by the autopilot to maintain the locked
apparent wind angle
Adjusting the Locked Wind Angle
The locked wind angle can be adjusted by changing course using the
1 1 10 and 10 keys
For example to bear away by 10 when the vessel is on starboard
tack press 10 to turn the vessel 10 to port The locked apparent
wind angle and locked heading both change by 10 The new
apparent wind angle is maintained and the locked heading adjusted
by the autopilot as required
Note This method does not apply to systems using the Type 100300
Course Computer Also this method should only be used for minor
adjustments to the apparent wind angle since turning the boat
affects the relationship between the true and apparent wind angles
For major changes return to Standby mode steer onto the new
heading and reselect Vane mode
22 ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
Returning to the Previous Apparent Wind Angle
LAST WND
If for any reason the vessel is steered away from the selected
apparent wind angle for example a dodge manoeuvre or selecting
Standby you can return to the previous locked wind angle
1 Press STANDBY and AUTO together for 1 second to display the
previous apparent wind angle LAST WND
stdby auto LAST

3 To accept this apparent wind angle press STANDBY and AUTO
together within 7 seconds
If you do not accept the previous wind within this time the autopilot
will lock on to the current apparent wind angle
Dodges
Full control is still available from the keypad when the autopilot is in
Vane mode
Dodge manoeuvres are accomplished by simply selecting the
desired course change using the course change keys
1 1 10 or 10 Both the locked heading and locked apparent
wind angle are adjusted
Once the hazard has been avoided you can reverse the previous
course change or return to the previous apparent wind angle
LAST 3 Advanced Operation 23
Wind Shift Alarm
The wind shift alarm sounds and the text WINDSHIFT is
displayed if a wind shift of more than 15 is detected
1 Press STANDBY to cancel the alarm and return to hand steering
and steer onto the required heading
2 Press STANDBY and AUTO together to return to Vane mode with
the new apparent wind angle
Using AutoTack in Vane Mode
The automatic tack function when used in Vane mode turns the
vessel so that the locked apparent wind angle is changed to an equal
angle on the opposite bow
Initially the autopilot turns the vessel through the specified tack
angle the factory default is 100 Then the locked heading is
adjusted until the required apparent wind angle is achieved
To tack to starboard press the 1 and 10 keys together
To tack to port press the 1 and 10 keys together
Note If you use the Autotack function in Vane mode it is important to check
that the wind vane has been centred accurately when it was installed
Also the AutoTack feature cannot be adjusted if you are using a

Operating Hints
Major changes to the selected apparent wind angle should be made
by returning to Standby mode changing course manually then
reselecting Vane Mode
Vane mode filters the windvane output This provides the optimum
response for offshore conditions where genuine shifts in wind
direction occur gradually
In gusty and unsteady inshore conditions it is best to sail a few
degrees further off the wind so that changes in apparent wind
direction can be tolerated
It is important to ensure that the amount of standing helm is
minimised by careful sail trimming and positioning of the mainsheet
traveller
The headsail and mainsail should be reefed a little early rather than
too 3 Advanced Operation 25
33 Adjusting Autopilot Performance
The response level and rudder gain can be adjusted during normal
operation using a combined keypress
The default calibration settings for response and rudder gain refer to
Dealer Setup are restored when the system is powered on
Changing the Response Level Auto Seastate
The response level controls the relationship between the autopilots
course keeping accuracy and the amount of helmdrive activity
Response Level 1 Auto Seastate Automatic Deadband causes the
autopilot to gradually ignore repetitive movements of the vessel and
only react to true variations in course This provides the best
compromise between power consumption and course keeping

Chapter 4 CodeLock 4 CodeLock
CodeLock is a personal fourdigit security feature designed to
protect your valuable instruments against theft You dont have to
activate the system but its there if you need to You can activate it
using any control unit on your SeaTalk
system
When you first enter a code and activate CodeLock the code is sent
to all the units on the system After this
whenever you power on the system the units will only start up if
they receive the correct code
Remember to fix a CodeLock sticker by each instrument to deter
potential thieves
41 CodeLock Modes
When you set up CodeLock you can choose whether the code will
be sent automatically or must be entered manually at power on as
follows
Auto mode is used when there is a display unit situated in a secure
location ideally below deck or one which can be unplugged and
removed to a secure location You enter your chosen code on this
master unit when you first activate CodeLock This code is then
automatically sent to all display heads on
SeaTalk without further intervention every time the system is
powered on
Manual mode is used to provide a higher degree of security
perhaps when all your instruments are mounted in exposed
locations In this case you must enter your personal code every time
the system is switched on The code can be entered into any
convenient control unit and is then sent to all
the other compatible units via SeaTalk

61 Planning the Installation
This chapter explains how to install the ST600R autopilot control
unit Before you start obtain the correct connection cable and decide
how you will site the unit and run the cables
Choosing the Correct Connection Cable
Because the range of Raymarine autopilots is extensive the cable
used to connect the ST600R must be ordered separately see below
Part Number Cable Description
D131 Round connectors at both ends 9m 29ft 3in
D177 No plugs but fitted with an inline 5A fuse

Cabling Guidelines
Avoid running cables through bilges where possible
Secure coiled lengths at regular intervals
Avoid running cables close to fluorescent lights engines radio
transmitting equipment etc
Chapter 6 Installation 53
EMC Installation Guidelines
The design and manufacture of Raymarine equipment and accessories
conforms to the appropriate Compatibility EMC
standards but good installation is required to ensure that
performance is not compromised
To avoid the risk of operating problems all Raymarine equipment and
cables connected to it should be
At least 1m 3 feet from any equipment transmitting or cables
carrying radio signals eg 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 Raymarine 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
If your Raymarine equipment will be connected to other equipment
using a cable not supplied by Raymarine a suppression ferrite MUST
always be fitted to the cable close to the Raymarine unit
The following illustration shows the range of suppression ferrites
fitted to Raymarine ST600R Autopilot Control Unit

EMC Conformance
The design and manufacture of Raymarine equipment and
accessories conforms to the appropriate 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
Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it
is not affected by radio engine starting etc
In some 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 ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
72 Initial Sea Trial
Having checked that the system is functioning correctly a short sea
trial is now required to complete the setup It involves the following
procedures
Automatic compass deviation correction
Heading alignment adjustment
Autopilot operation check
Rudder gain adjustment
The initial sea trial should be performed in the following
After all the installation functional test and initial calibration have
been completed successfully
Before any other changes have been made to the default calibration
settings check and if necessary reset the values to the
recommended levels as described in Chapter 5
In conditions of light wind and calm water so that autopilot
performance can be assessed without the influence of strong winds
or large waves
In waters clear of any obstructions
Note At any time during the sea trial you can press STANDBY to return to
hand steering
Automatic Compass Deviation Correction
The autopilot will correct the fluxgate compass for most deviating
magnetic fields Compass errors due to deviating magnetic fields
can be as great as15 or even 45 depending on your vessel type
The correction procedure reduces these to a few degrees so it is
essential to perform the procedure as the first item in your initial sea
trial
Caution Failure to carry out the deviation correction may result in impaired
autopilot performance on some compass headings
To allow the system to determine the deviation and calculate any
correction required you must turn your vessel in slow circles This
procedure must be carried out in calm conditions and preferably in
flat 7 Post Installation Procedures 65
To perform the deviation correction
1 Make sure that the autopilot is in Standby mode with the drive unit
engaged

is displayed
This shows the maximum deviation detected and indicates that
compass correction has been completed Note If the deviation value exceeds 15 you should consider moving the
fluxgate compass to a better location

Note Setup options are always saved on exit
Further Heading Alignment Adjustment
You should always check the compass alignment after swinging the
compass However once the initial deviation correction procedure
has been performed you can make adjustments to the alignment as
often as you wish without swinging the compass again
Although the compass deviation correction procedure removes most
of the alignment error you will probably be left with small errors of
the order of a few degrees that will vary depending on the heading
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
This value can then be entered 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
Checking Autopilot Operation
Having calibrated the compass the following procedure is
recommended to familiarise yourself with autopilot operation
1 Steer onto a compass heading and hold the course steady
2 Press AUTO to lock onto the current heading A constant heading
should be achieved in calm sea conditions
3 Use the 1 10 1 and 10 keys to alter course to port or starboard
in multiples of 1 and 10
4 Press STANDBY and disengage the autopilot to return to hand
steering
68 ST600R Autopilot Control Unit
Checking the Rudder Gain
The factory setting for rudder gain will provide stable control for
initial sea trials However vessels can vary widely in their response
to the helm and further adjustment to the rudder gain may improve
the autopilots steering It is important to ensure that rudder gain is set correctly on high
speed craft Incorrect adjustment will lead to poor steering
performance and is dangerous at high speeds
The following test will determine whether the rudder gain is set too
high or too low
1 In clear water and with the autopilot in Auto alter course to
starboard by 40 by pressing the 10 key four times
At cruising speeds course changes of 40 should result in crisp turns
followed by an overshoot of no more than 5 If this occurs the
rudder gain is adjusted correctly
An excessively high rudder setting results in oversteer This is
recognised by a distinct overshoot of more than 5 A This
condition can be corrected by reducing the rudder gain setting
Similarly an insufficient rudder control setting will result in
understeer which gives sluggish steering performance B If the
vessel takes a long time to make the turn and there is no overshoot
then the rudder setting is too low
Chapter 7 Post Installation Procedures 69
These actions are most easily recognised in calm sea conditions
where wave action does not mask basic steering performance
2 Refer to Chapter 5 Customising the System for instructions on
how to adjust the default rudder gain setting Note that you can also
make temporary adjustments to rudder gain during normal operation
see Section 33
3 Repeat the test until a crisp course change with no more 5 of
overshoot is achieved
The rudder control setting should be set to the lowest setting
consistent with accurate course keeping This will minimise helm
movements and hence reduce power consumption and wear and
tear
