System Components
The S1000 system comprises a Course Computer, Controller and Hydraulic
Pump. Please ensure that these have been installed and commissioned
correctly using the S1000 Installation Guide. Finally, check that your system
is receiving a good GPS signal through the NMEA or SeaTalk connection.

Changing the Controller batteries
The S100 Controller is powered by 2 AAA
batteries which are located in the back of the unit.
Ensure that only good quality alkaline batteries
are used. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
A small cross-head screwdriver will be required to
undo the battery cover screws.
Remove the batteries from the unit if you do not
intend using it for more than a month.
                                                               D7641-1
Follow the battery manufacturer's instructions for
proper care and disposal of used batteries.

How do I power the system on?
POWER ON
Ensure that the S1000 and GPS is powered on at the vessel's breaker. On the
controller, press and hold the STANDBY button. The handset will beep, the
display will read STANDBY and you're ready to go.
When you first switch the S1000 on, it is normal to experience a delay of
about 80 seconds while the processor stabilizes. This delay also occurs
when you restart following an emergency power-off.
When trolling at slow speeds, the autopilot may take up to 50 seconds to
acquire stable GPS signals and engage AUTO (this is typical of GPS signals
at this slow speed). If you try to engage AUTO during this period, the S100
will display the message "INITIALISING".

Operation modes
The S100 wireless controller is automatically set to Fishing Mode. Do not
select Sail or Power mode as this will cause a loss of calibration.

Using fishing patterns
A short period of operation in AUTO mode is required before accessing
fishing patterns. This allows the course computer to stabilise using the
incoming GPS information. Fishing patterns are only available from AUTO
mode (not STANDBY).

Power saving mode
If you are in STANDBY mode (autopilot off), the handset will automatically
turn off if no button has been pressed for 5 minutes. This will help to extend
the battery life.

GPS filtering
For optimum performance, set GPS device filtering to OFF or WEAK (see
your GPS device documentation for instructions on how to do this). If the
GPS is a Raymarine device, this is done automatically. Both transmit and
receive cabling should be connected.
Note: Not all GPS devices allow filter settings to be changed.

Wireless signal strength
Wireless signal strength (5 levels) is shown on the right hand side
of the display.

Keylock




                                                                         D7667-1
When using your S100, you can temporarily lock the autopilot
keys to ensure that it is not accidentally operated.
How do I activate the keylock?
Press and hold the mode button until you see the key symbol and "LOCK"
message.
Note: You cannot activate keylock when the autopilot is in control of your
boat.
How do I turn off the keylock?
Press mode followed by the PILOT button. A "KEYLOCK OFF" message
will be displayed.

Performance check
The S1000 is factory-set to work straight out of the box for most purposes.
We therefore recommended that you test your S1000 as supplied, and
adjust the settings only if you feel that performance is not satisfactory.

How do I use the autopilot?
Your S1000 can steer your boat according to one of its preset modes.
The modes that are available depend on your boat type. Each of these
are explained on the following pages.
As your S1000 uses a Course-over-Ground (COG) reading from your
GPS to determine the correct heading, you will need to ensure that
you have travelled at over 3 knots, for more than 30 seconds before
you activate the autopilot.

How do I automatically steer straight?
To continue on your current heading under autopilot control, use the
AUTO mode. This will steer you in a straight line ahead until
commanded otherwise. AUTO mode can be used in conjunction with
SMARTSTEER to give you remote, power-steering control of your boat.

What is Rudder Gain?
Boats can vary widely in their response to helm, and by adjusting the
rudder gain you can change the S1000's steering characteristics.
Rudder gain is a measure of how much helm the S1000 applies to
correct course errors ­ higher settings mean more rudder is applied.
This can be set in the range 1 to 9.
To determine if your rudder gain is appropriate, make a 40º turn in AUTO
mode
Gain is correct when you make a crisp turn followed by an overshoot of
no more than 5°.
Gain is too high when you overshoot the turn by more than 5° and
there is a distinct `S' in the course (A)
Gain is too low when the boat's performance is sluggish and it takes a
long time to make a turn. There is also no overshoot (B)

What is Counter Rudder?
Counter rudder is the amount of rudder your S1000 applies to try to
prevent the boat from veering off course. Higher counter rudder
settings result in more rudder being applied. This can be set in the
range 1 to 9.
To determine if your counter rudder setting is appropriate, make a 90º turn
in AUTO mode
Counter Rudder is correct when you make a a smooth continuous
turn with minimal overshoot.
Counter Rudder is too high when the boat `fights' the turn and
makes a series of short, sharp turns resulting in a very `mechanical' feel as
the boat changes course
Counter Rudder is too low when the boat overshoots the turn.

What is Response?
This sets the S1000 response level setting. The response level controls the
relationship between course keeping accuracy and the amount of helm/
drive activity. Range is from 1 to 9.
level 1 minimizes the amount of pilot activity. This conserves power, but
may compromise short-term course-keeping accuracy
levels 4 to 6 should give good course keeping with crisp, well controlled
turns under normal operating conditions
level 9 gives the tightest course keeping and greatest rudder activity (and
power consumption). This can lead to a rough passage in open waters as the
pilot may `fight' the sea.

What is Auto Trim?
The AutoTrim setting determines the rate at which the S1000 applies
`standing helm' to correct for trim changes caused by varying wind loads on
the superstructure.
The default AutoTrim is set during the autolearn process:
If you need to change the setting, increase the AutoTrim one level at a time
and use the lowest acceptable value:
      ·    decrease the AutoTrim level if the S1000 gives unstable course
           keeping or producing a long `S' in the wake.
      ·    increase the AutoTrim level if the S1000 reacts slowly to a
           heading change and hangs off course.

Fault finding
All Raymarine products are designed to provide many years of trouble-free
operation. We also put them through comprehensive testing and quality
assurance procedures before shipping.
If a fault occurs with your S1000, use the fault finding tables in this section
to help identify the problem and provide a solution. If you cannot resolve the
problem yourself, refer to the product support information.

Safety alarm
When activated, the Safety alarm will sound 3 times at 1 second intervals.
This occurs when the autopilot is in control of your boat and:
       ·   the S1000 loses contact with all of its controllers (including wired
           controllers),
           OR
       · the S1000 loses GPS signal.
In both instances, the S1000 will revert to STANDBY and you will need to
take the helm.

Frequently-asked questions
Q. Will my autopilot work at very slow speeds?
The S1000 uses signals from the GPS network to determine your heading.
For most effective operation, your boat should be travelling above 3 m.p.h.
(2.5 kts). The autopilot will work at speeds down to 1 kt, but operation
below 2.5 kts cannot be guaranteed, as adverse wind and tide conditions
could prevail.
Q. I am automatically following a route set on my
chartplotter, what happens when I arrive at a waypoint?
As you approach a waypoint on your route, your chartplotter will raise an
alarm to indicate that this is happening. A few moments later, the S100 will
also alarm. This is indicating that the autopilot wishes to make a turn. At this
point press PILOT to accept the turn onto the next leg of the route. If you
press PILOT before the autopilot alarms, the unit will stop following the
track, revert to AUTO mode and you will continue on the current heading.

Q. What should I do when the safety alarm sounds?
The safety alarm will sound when the pilot switches to STANDBY as a safety
precaution.You MUST take the helm.
The safety alarm will sound when the pilot is in control of your boat, and:
      ·    the S1000 loses contact with all of its connected controllers
           or
      ·    when the S1000 stops receiving valid GPS information.

General maintenance
Routine checks
The S1000 computer and S100 controller do NOT contain user-serviceable
parts. If you remove the main cover you will invalidate the warranty. It
should be serviced only by authorized Raymarine service technician.
As a result, user maintenance is limited to the following checks
      ·    make sure all cable connectors are firmly attached and free of
           corrosion
      ·    examine for signs of wear or damage ­ replace any damaged
           cables
      ·    replace batteries when necessary
Cleaning the S1000 and S100
Take care when cleaning the display. Avoid wiping the display screen with a
dry cloth as this could scratch the screen coating. If necessary, only use a
mild detergent.
Never use chemical or abrasive materials to clean the computer or
controller. If it is dirty, wipe it with a clean, damp cloth.

Dealer Maintenance Procedures
This section includes procedures that have a significant impact on autopilot
operation and can affect your boat's safety. You will not need to follow
these procedures in normal operation. We therefore recommend that these
are only performed by authorized service personnel.
Accessing the dealer calibration area.
From STANDBY mode, press and hold STANDBY for 2 seconds to enter
PILOT SETUP. Then press and hold mode for 5 seconds until the dealer
calibration screen is displayed.
Subsequent presses of mode will cycle through the calibration options.
Hardware and Software version numbers
Use this screen to display the version and serial numbers for the unit.
Contrast
Use the < and > keys to adjust the contrast to a satisfactory level.
Self test
Press PILOT to start the unit test sequence and then follow the on-screen
instructions. This will test the display, buzzer and button functions.
Diagnostics
Press PILOT to display the status of the wireless link.
Handset Registration
Raymarine wireless systems demand that each wireless controller is
"registered" to a basestation, in this case a S1000. This registration process
is to prevent unauthorized control of your boat by another user nearby. Your
S1000 system is supplied with the handset pre-registered to the S1000.
There may be instances where you want to move your controller to another
boat and use it with another system. In this case, you will need to de-register
from the current system and register with the new system. You can do this
using the REGISTRATION function.

WARNING: Navigation aid
Although we have designed this product to be accurate and
reliable, many factors can affect its performance. As a result,
it should only be used as an aid to navigation and should
never replace common sense and navigational judgement.
Always maintain a permanent watch so you can respond to
situations as they develop.
WARNING: Autopilot controller
If the wireless controller is your only method of operating
the autopilot, ensure that an in-line power switch is fitted to
the autopilot power supply as detailed in the S1000 autopilot
installation guide.
Your S1000 will add a new dimension to your boating enjoyment. However,
it is the skipper's responsibility to ensure the safety of the boat at all times by
following these basic rules:
       ·    Ensure that someone is present at the helm AT ALL TIMES, to
            take manual control in an emergency.
       ·    Make sure that all members of crew know how to disengage the
            autopilot.
       ·    Regularly check for other boats and any obstacles to navigation
            ­ no matter how clear the sea may appear, a dangerous situation
            can develop rapidly.
       ·    Maintain an accurate record of the boat's position by using
            either a navigation aid or visual bearings.
       ·    Maintain a continuous plot of your boat's position on a current
            chart. Ensure that the locked autopilot heading will steer the
            boat 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
            navigation aid, always maintain a log and make regular
            positional plots. Navigation signals can produce significant
