Schematic diagram detailing autopilot system location and connections You should also check that existing marine electronics such as the GPS are installed and working21 Installation requirements WARNING Install at dockside For safety reasons your boat must be securely moored at dockside with power switched off before commencing installation EMC installation guidelines Raymarine equipment and accessories conform to the appropriate Compatibility EMC regulations This minimizes interference between equipment which could otherwise affect the performance of your system Correct installation is required to ensure that EMC performance is not compromised For optimum EMC performance we recommend that Raymarine equipment and the cables connected to it are i At least 3 ft 1 m from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio sig nals eg VHF radios cables and antennas In the case of SSB radios the dis tance should be increased to 7 ft 2 m ii More than 7 ft 2 m 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 product is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine start This is important to prevent erratic behavior and data loss which can occur if the engine start does not have a separate battery Raymarine specified cables are used Cables are not cut or extended unless doing so is detailed in the installation man ual Remember Where constraints on the installation prevent any of the above Always allow the maximum separation possible between different items of electri cal equipment This will provide the best conditions for EMC performance for the installation Suppression ferrites Raymarine cables may be fitted with suppression ferrites These are important for correct EMC performance Any ferrite removed to facilitate installation must be replaced in the original position immediately after the installation is complete Use only ferrites of the correct type supplied by Raymarine authorized dealers8 SmartPilot X5 Sport installation Setup Guide Connections to other equipment If Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable not supplied by Raymarine a Raymarine suppression ferrite MUST always be attached to the cable near the Raymarine unit Compass The compass is sensitive to magnetic influences and other potential sources of interference including engines and VHF radio waves To ensure optimum operation it is essential to locate the compass correctly22 General cabling guidelines The power cable attached to the drive unit MUST be left intact Coil and tie any excess do NOT cut or otherwise remove it Do not mix ac and dc cables Adhere to EMC guidelines see page 7 Use Kopex conduit where appropriate to protect cables

Dealer calibration and return to the Standby mode Seatrial calibration When you have completed the dockside checks carry out a Seatrial calibration to calibrate the compass and set up the autopilot steering Important If you need to return to manual steering at any time during a Seatrial or any other procedure press the standby button NEVER compromise vessel safety EMC conformance Always check the installation before going to sea to make sure that it is not affected by radio transmissions engine starting etcThis is particularly important when carrying out a Seatrial Seatrial conditions The seatrial must be carried out only In conditions of light wind and calm water In waters that are clear of any obstructions so the boat has plenty of clear space to maneuver In order to achieve optimum autopilot performance course over ground COG speed over ground SOG and latitude LAT data must be available to the SPX5 Sport system eg on SeaTalk Ensure that the equipment providing this information eg GPS is switched on and fully operational before starting a Seatrial The Seatrial procedures are Compass calibration Using AutoLearn to set the SPX5 Sport system steering Getting started Start the SeaTrial calibration as follows 1 From Standby mode hold down standby for 2 seconds then press disp twice to see the SEATRIAL CAL screen 2 Carry out the Seatrial calibration functions as described below in the following sequence i Swinging the compass ii Aligning the compass heading iii Aligning rudder bar only if rudder reference transducer is fitted iv AutoLearn Swinging the compass Note This section does not apply if you have connected an NMEA compass to your SPX sys tem Refer to the handbook supplied with the NMEA compass for information about calibration The magnetic deviation correction procedure commonly called swinging the compass involves turning your boat in slow circles so the autopilot can SmartPilot X5 Sport installation Setup Guide determine the deviation and apply any correction required The correction procedure reduces deviation errors to a few degrees As magnetic deviation can cause significant compass errors on your boat you MUST complete the compass swing before any other seatrial procedure To swing the compass 1 With the SPX5 Sport system in Standby mode enter Seatrial calibration as follows i Hold down standby for two seconds to enter Calibration mode ii When you see the DISPLAY CAL screen press disp until you see the SEATRIAL CAL screen iii Press auto to enter Seatrial calibration Note If you cannot access Seatrial calibration disable the

COMPASS ON 4 Press auto to start the compass swing The Pilot Controller will display TURN BOAT This indicates the start of the com pass swing Start turning boat see below Turn boat in slow circles so boats speed stays below 2 knots each circle takes at least 2 minutes Autopilot heading Minimum of 2 circles Keep turning the boat until you see the DEVIATION screen D104741 5 Ensuring you keep the boats speed below 5 knots start slowly turning the boat in circles at a constant speed maintaining a turn rate of approximately 3 per second ie taking approximately 2 minutes to complete one turn Complete at least two circles in this manner If you turn the boat too quickly the display will show a TOO FAST message If this occurs apply less helm to reduce the rate of turnChapter 3 Commissioning Setup 39 Note If necessary you can quit the correction process by pressing standby or disp If you then want to repeat the deviation correction return to the SWING COMPASS screen 6 Continue slowly turning the boat until the controller beeps and displays the DEVIATION screen This indicates that the SPX5 Sport system has completed the deviation correction Note This screen shows the maximum deviation encountered over 360 not as an eastwest value If the deviation value exceeds 15 the compass is being affected by ferrous objects on your boat If this occurs move the compass to a better location Higher deviation figures are acceptable on steel boats Aligning the compass heading Once the deviation is displayed press disp to move to the Heading Alignment page ALIGN HDG then 1 Manually steer the boat on a steady course at a speed sufficient to hold that course 2 If you have a GPS connected to your SPX5 Sport system i Increase the boat speed to more than 3 knots ii Press auto The SPX5 Sport system will then set the heading to agree with the COG course over ground heading received from the GPS As many factors can cause a difference between heading and COG you must fine tune the heading alignment so it matches the boats steering compass or a known transit bearing To do this 1 Use 1 1 10 and 10 to adjust the displayed heading until it matches boats steering compass or a known transit bearing 2 Hold down standby for 2 seconds to exit Seatrial calibration and save the new compass settings Align the autopilot heading a Coarse adjustment If COG is available from GPS press to set autopilot heading to COG value then fine tune manually see below b Fine adjustment If COG is not available or after setting heading to COG align autopilot heading manually Autopilot heading Steering compass or or Known heading Adjust the autopilot heading so it shows the same value as the boats steering compass Save changes To save deviation correction save heading alignment return to STANDBY mode 2 sec D10473140 SmartPilot X5 Sport installation Setup Guide Although the compass calibration removes most of the alignment error small errors a few degrees may remain Once you have completed the initial compass calibration you can make further adjustments to the alignment without having to swing the compass again 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 You can then enter this value on the Heading Alignment screen as described above If the average heading error is more than 5 check there are no items close to the compass that could cause an unwanted magnetic influence You should also consider moving the fluxgate compass and performing the compass deviation correction procedure again circling more slowly and in more favorable conditions Aligning rudder bar If the rudder reference transducer is fitted use this procedure to align the rudder bar on the Pilot Controller display 1 Access the ALIGN RUDDER screen in Seatrial calibration i From Standby mode hold down standby for 2 seconds then press disp twice to see the SEATRIAL CAL screen i Press auto to enter Seatrial calibration then press disp tree times to see the ALIGN RUDDER screen 2 Steer straight ahead then use 1 1 10 and 10 or the rotary control to set the dis played rudder bar to zero AutoLearn CAUTION When using Autolearn you must have significant clear water both in front and to the sides of the vessel This is needed to accommodate a series of maneuvers which include sudden sharp turns The next stage of the Seatrial is to carry out an AutoLearn routine This is a self learning calibration feature that automatically adjusts rudder gain counter rudder and AutoTrim for optimum performance on your boat If you need to return to manual steering at any time during an AutoLearn routine or any other procedure press the standby button NEVER compromise vessel safety Clear water The Autolearn set up feature performs a series of 7 or 8 turns at normal cruising speed The amount of clear water required depends upon the cruising speed of your vessel For example

and seatrial calibration the SPX system is now commissioned and ready for use After having used your SPX5 Sport system you may decide to change the value of some parameters to improve pilot performance with your boat If you feel this is necessary use the appropriate procedures under Manual setup below32 Manual setup Checking SPX5 Sport system operation Before manually adjusting any settings familiarize yourself with basic SPX5 Sport system operation as follows 1 Steer onto a compass heading and hold the course steady at a normal cruising speed If necessary steer the boat manually for a short time to check how the boat steers 2 Press auto to lock onto the current heading The SPX5 Sport system should hold a constant heading in calm sea conditions 3 Use 1 1 10 and 10 to see how the SmartPilot alters the course to port and starboard 4 Press standby to return to manual steering Adjustable parameters If you feel you need to fine tune the SPX5 Sport system performance you can do so by using one or more of the procedures below to adjust Rudder gain Counter rudder AutoTrim Over time you may wish to repeat these adjustments using a range of sea conditions and headings to achieve optimum allround performance for your particular vessel and preferences Adjust these settings when motoring your boat at cruising speed For further information on adjustable parameters refer to Chapter 4 SmartPilot X5 Sport Settings Setting response level Before proceeding with any manual adjustment set the response level to 5 as follows 1 Enter Dealer calibration as described on page 35 2 Use disp as necessary to access the RESPONSE screen 3 Use the 1 or 1 key or the up and down arrow keys to set a response of 5 4 Hold down standby for 2 seconds to save the setting and leave Dealer 3 Commissioning Setup 45 Rudder gain Boats can vary widely in their response to helm and by adjusting the rudder gain you can change the SPX5 Sport systems steering Rudder gain is a measure of how much helm the SPX5 Sport system applies to correct course errors higher settings mean more rudder is applied Checking Complete the following test to determine whether the rudder gain is set correctly 1 Ensure you have set the SPX5 Sport response to level 5 as described above 2 Motor your boat at a typical cruising speed in clear water It is easier to recognize the steering response in calm sea conditions where wave action does not mask steering performance 3 Press auto to enter Auto mode then alter course by 40 if the rudder gain is adjusted correctly the 40 course change should result in a crisp turn followed by an overshoot of no more than 5 if the rudder gain setting is too high the 40 course change will result in a dis tinct overshoot of more than 5 and there may be a distinct S in the course A Correct this oversteer by reducing the rudder gain setting if the rudder gain is too low the boats performance will be sluggish it will take a long time to make the 40 turn and there will be no overshoot B Correct this understeer by increasing the rudder gain setting New heading B New Rudder gain heading too low A New Rudder gain heading too high Correct rudder gain D104721 Adjusting To adjust the rudder gain 1 Enter Dealer calibration as described on page 35 2 Use disp as necessary to access the RUDD GAIN screen 3 Use 1 or 1 to adjust the rudder gain 4 Hold down standby for 2 seconds to save the changes and leave Dealer calibra tion 5 Press auto to check the SPX5 Sport system performance in Auto mode46 SmartPilot X5 Sport installation Setup Guide Counter rudder Counter rudder is the amount of rudder the SPX5 Sport system applies to try to prevent the boat from oversteering Higher counter rudder settings result in more rudder being applied Checking To check the counter rudder setting 1 Ensure you have set the response to level 5 as described above 2 Motor your boat at cruising speed in clear water 3 Press auto to switch the SPX5 Sport system to Auto mode then make a 90 course change When gain and counter rudder are both set correctly the boat performs a smooth continuous turn with minimal overshoot If the counter rudder is too low the boat will still overshoot If counter rudder is too high the boat will fight the turn and make a series of short sharp turns this results in a very mechanical feel as the boat changes course Adjusting To adjust the counter rudder 1 Enter Dealer calibration as described on page 35 1 Access the COUNT RUD screen in Dealer calibration 2 Use the 1 or 1 keys to adjust the counter rudder 3 Press and hold standby for 2 seconds to save the changes and leave Dealer cal ibration 4 Press auto to check the SmartPilot performance in Auto mode AutoTrim You may also wish to adjust the AutoTrim setting AutoTrim determines how quickly the SPX5 Sport system applies standing helm to correct for trim changes caused for example by changes in the wind load on the superstructure or an imbalance of engines Increasing the AutoTrim level reduces the time the SPX5 Sport system takes to get back onto the correct course but makes the boat less stable If the SPX5 Sport system Gives unstable course keeping and the boat snakes around the desired course decrease the AutoTrim level Hangs off course for excessive periods of time increase the AutoTrim level Adjusting Before attempting to adjust the AutoTrim setting ensure you have sufficient experience using your SPX5 Sport system If you need to adjust AutoTrim go up one level at a time and use the lowest acceptable value The range of settings is from OFF no trim correction to 6 fastest trim 3 Commissioning Setup 47 To adjust the AutoTrim 1 Enter Dealer calibration as described on page 35 1 Use disp as necessary to access the AUTOTRIM screen 2 Use

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
