contained in this handbook Failure to do so could result in poor product performance personal injury andor damage to your boat WARNING Electrical safetyMake sure the power supply is switched off before you make any electrical connections WARNING Navigation aidAlthough 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 Your Raymarine autopilot will add a new dimension to your boating enjoyment However it is the skippers responsibility to ensure the safety of the boat at all times by following these basic rulesEnsure that someone is present at the helm AT ALL TIMES to take manual control in an emergencyMake sure that all crew members know how to disengage the check for other boats and any obstacles to navigation no matter how clear the sea may appear a dangerous situation can develop an accurate record of the boats position by using either a navigation aid or visual a continuous plot of your boats 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 cannotEven 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 errors under some circumstances and the autopilot will not be able to detect these Page 6 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 2 Using the Tiller Pilot7Chapter 2Using the Tiller Passage making under autopilot control is an enjoyable experience that can if you are not careful lead to the relaxation of the permanent watch Always maintain a permanent watch no matter how clear the sea may appear to beThe tiller pilot always powers up in Standby mode indicated by a flashing C alongside the boats current compass heading The tiller pilot is controlled using simple pushbutton operations all of which are confirmed with a short beep In addition to the main single key functions there are several dual key operationsTo select automatic steeringsteady the boat on the required headingplace the pushrod over the tiller pin if necessary extend or retract the pushrod using the 1 10 and 10 keys press autothe display will then show an alongside the current headingTo return to manual steering at any timepress standbyremove the pushrod from the tiller pinYou can use the 110

boat is under autopilot control select a course change in the appropriate direction For example press 10 three times for a 30dodge to port2When safely clear of the obstacle you can either reverse the previous course change for example by pressing 10 three times or return to the previous heading see belowReturning to the previous heading 1Press auto for 1second the previous heading will flash for 10seconds 2To accept the previous heading press auto again while the previous heading is flashing AutoTack Page 10 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 2 Using the Tiller Pilot11 Note If you do not press auto while the display is flashing the autopilot will maintain the current headingOff course alarmThe off course alarm sounds if the locked autopilot heading and the boats current heading differ by more than the value set in 6 see page 62r 20 seconds Cancelling the off course alarmTo cancel the off course alarm press standby to return to manual steeringNote If the off course alarm sounds this is usually an indication that the boat is carrying too much sail or that the sails are badly balanced In these conditions you can usually obtain significant improvements in course keeping by improving the sail navigation information pagesIf navigation information eg distance to waypoint cross track error and bearing to waypoints available you can display it in Auto mode or Standby mode by pressing either and 10 or and together momentarily The display will then cycle through the navigation information Page 11 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM12ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Pilots You can revert to normal operation by pressing either and 10 or and 10together againAutomatic deadband control Auto SeastateIn Auto WindTrim or Track modes the tiller pilot is set to AutoSeastate automatic deadband control as a default This causes the pilot to gradually ignore repetitive movements of the boat and respond only to true course variations By preventing unnecessary rudder movement AutoSeastate provides the best compromise between power consumption and course keeping accuracyIf you want to switch off the AutoSeastate feature1From Auto WindTrim or Track mode press 1 and 1 together to switch from AutoSeastate to Fixed Minimum Deadband 2The sign flashes when Fixed Minimum Deadband is selected Minimum deadband provides the tightest course keeping possible at the expense of increased power consumption and drive unit activity Locked to waypointif to waypointif Page 12 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 2 Using the Tiller Pilot13To switch back to AutoSeastate press 1 and 1 againNote The autopilot reverts to Automatic Deadband Control each time you select Standby modeOperating hints trim changesCAUTION Only make major course changes when steering MANUALLY This ensures that the boat will safely clear any obstructions or other boats and you can take into account the changed wind and sea conditions on the new heading before engaging the autopilotLarge course changes which change the apparent wind direction can produce large trim changes When a sudden trim change occurs for example due to weather helm or sail imbalance there will be a delay of up to one minute before the automatic trim applies rudder to restore the locked heading 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 established To minimize this problem use the following procedure to make major course changes1Note the required new heading2Press standby remove the pushrod from the tiller pin and steer manually3Bring boat onto the new heading and fit the pushrod back onto the tiller pin4Press auto and let the boat settle on course5Bring your boat onto the final course in 1 steps using or Gusting conditionsIn gusting conditions the course may tend to wander slightly particularly if the sails are badly balanced By improving sail balance you can improve course keeping If you take the following precautions the autopilot will be able to maintain competent control even in gale force conditions Do not allow the boat to heel over the mainsheet traveller to leeward to reduce heeling and weather helmIf necessary reef the mainsail a little earlyIt is also advisable whenever possibleto avoid sailing with the wind dead astern when there are very strong winds and large seasIdeally the wind should be at least 30 away from a dead run811306book Page 13 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM14ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller PilotsIn severe conditions it may be advisable to remove the mainsail altogether and sail under headsail only 23Switching display illumination on and offYou can switch the display illumination on and off when the tiller pilot is in Standby modefrom Standby mode press and 1 together to switch the illumination between on L1nd off L0to return to the previous mode either wait 10 seconds or press the appropriate mode key Note The tiller pilot normally powersup with the illumination switched on If other SeaTalk instruments or autopilot control units are connected via SeaTalk you can also control the tiller pilots illumination from these units24Using Track modeIn Track mode the tiller pilot maintains a track between waypoints created on a navigation system The tiller pilot computes any course changes to keep your boat on track automatically compensating for tidal streams and leeway To operate in Track mode the tiller pilot must receive cross track error information from eithera SeaTalk navigator ora nonSeaTalk navigation system transmitting NMEA 0180 or 0183 dataSelecting Track modeWhen you select Track mode the tiller pilot can acquire the track in one of two waysautomatic acquisition when both cross track error and bearing to waypoint data are Page 14 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 2 Using the Tiller Pilot15manual acquisition when Cross Track Error is the only available track acquisitionIf cross track error and bearing to waypoint data are both available via SeaTalk or NMEA the pilot can acquire a track automatically 1Bring the boat to within 01 nm of track 2Press auto3Press 10 and 10 together to enter Track mode4An alarm will sound and the display will alternate betweenthe bearing to waypoint and the direction the boat will turn to take up the new track 5Check that it is safe to turn the boat onto the new course6Press 10 and 10

Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM16ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Pilots Manual track acquisitionIf your navigator only provides cross track error information you must acquire the track manually1Steer the boat to within 01 nm of track2Bring the heading to within 5 of the bearing to the next waypoint 3Press auto4Press 10 and 10 together to enter Track mode the autopilot will start tracking to the waypointthe display will alternate between cross track error and the locked pilot headingManual track acquisition at low speedsUsing manual acquisition at low speeds requires additional care as tidal streams have a far more significant effect at lower speeds than at higher speeds In general terms if the tidal flow is less than 35 of the boats speed you will not notice any difference in the tiller pilots performance in Track mode However you should take extra care during manual acquisition as follows before you select Track mode make sure that the boat is as close as possible to track and that the direction made good over the ground is as close as possible to the direction of the next waypoint positive checks of the boats position at regular intervals are vital especially if you are close to potential navigational hazardsLocked to waypointif to waypointif Page 16 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 2 Using the Tiller to Auto from Track modeTo return to Auto mode from Track modepress

PilotsTidal stream most operating conditions Track mode will hold the selected track to within 005 nm 300 ft or betterThe autopilot takes account of the boats speed when computing course changes to ensure optimum performance over a wide range of boat speeds If speed data is available the autopilot will use the measured boat speed Otherwise it will use the default cruise speed entered in Calibration Level 5 see page 62 Waypoint arrival and advanceCAUTION Waypoint advance will only operate if the tiller pilot receives valid bearing to waypoint and waypoint name information The tiller pilot can only decode the first FOUR characters of a waypoint name It will not be able to decode names longer than four characters which will stop the waypoint advance feature from working If your navigator transmits valid waypoint name and bearing to waypoint data you can advance from one waypoint to the next bypressing 10 and 2Waypoint 1Tidal comBoats speed through Page 18 Wednesday March 8

towards the next waypointUnless you accept the waypoint advance in this way the alarm will continue to sound and the tiller pilot will maintain the current courseDodges in Track modeIn Track mode you still have full control from the keypad to make a dodge maneuver use the 10 or 10 keysafter you have avoided the hazard reverse the course change selected for the dodge maneuver by selecting an equal course change in the opposite directionif the boat remains within 01 nm of track there is no need to steer back towards the trackSafety in Track modeWARNING Track mode provides accurate track keeping even in complex navigational situations However it is still the skippers responsibility to ensure the safety of their boat at all times through careful navigation and frequent position checks Passage making in Track mode assists precise navigation and removes the tasks of compensating for wind and tidal drift However you MUST still maintain an accurate log with regular Page 19 Wednesday March 8

navigation system Check for fixed positional errors and compensate for themVerifying computed verify the computed position with a dead reckoned position calculated from the average course steered and the distance loggedPlot frequencyIn open water you should make plots at least every hour In confined waters or when near to potential hazards you should make plots more waypointsLocal variations in radio signal quality and changes in the tidal stream can produce deviations from the desired track When setting waypoints remember that deviations can check along each track Check up to 05nm each side of the track to ensure that there are no hazards within this zoneFor the waypoint advance function to work the last four characters of adjacent waypoint names must be different Warning messages in Track modeTrack data not received The tiller pilot displays this message if you select Track mode when the autopilot is not receiving any navigation data811306book Page 20 Wednesday March 8 2006 312

bearing and track towards the next waypointNote Waypoint advance will only operate if your pilot receives valid bearing to waypoint and waypoint number WindTrim modeNote You can only use WindTrim mode if the tiller pilot is connected to a suitable wind providing wind direction data To use WindTrim mode the tiller pilot must receive wind information from one of the following sourcesSeaTalk wind instrumentNMEA wind pushpit wind vane part number Z159onnected via supplied SeaTalk interfaceIn WindTrim mode the tiller pilot maintains a course relative to an apparent wind angle The pilot uses WindTrim to eliminate the effects of turbulence and short term wind variations This provides smooth precise performance with minimum power consumption WindTrim mode uses the fluxgate compass as the primary heading reference When changes in the apparent wind angle occur the tiller pilot adjusts the locked compass heading to maintain the original apparent wind angle In WindTrim mode the tiller pilot ignores shortterm changes in wind direction yet still tracks real wind shifts as subtle as 1Selecting WindTrim modeFrom Standby mode or Auto mode press standby and auto together to select WindTrim The tiller pilot will then maintain the current apparent wind angle Note The tiller pilot beeps once every 30 seconds in WindTrim mode 811306book Page 22 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter

cancel the wind shift alarmcheck that the new course does not take the boat into dangerpress standby and auto together momentarily to accept the alarm and reset the wind shift alarm value to the current compass hints for WindTrim modeWindTrim filters the wind vane output This provides optimum response for offshore conditions where genuine shifts in wind direction occur gradually In gusting 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 toleratedIt is important to minimize the amount of standing helm through careful sail trimming and positioning of the mainsheet travellerIt is recommended that the headsail and mainsail are reefed a little early rather than too late811306book Page 24 Wednesday

the best industry standards for use in the recreational marine design and manufacture conforms to the appropriate Compatibility EMC standards but correct 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 productThe guidelines given here describe the conditions for optimum EMC performance but it is recognized that it may not be possible to meet all of these conditions in all situations To ensure the best possible conditions for EMC performance within the constraints imposed by any location always ensure the maximum separation possible between different items of electrical equipmentFor optimum EMC performance we recommend thatRaymarine equipment and cables connected to it areAt least 3 ft 1 m from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals eg VHF radios cables and antennas In the case of SSB radios increase the distance to 7ft 2mMore 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 elementThe equipment is supplied from a separate battery from that used for engine start Voltage drops below 10V and starter motor transients can cause the equipment to reset This will not damage the equipment but may cause the loss of some information and may change the operating modeRaymarine specified cables are used Cutting and rejoining these cables can compromise EMC performance and must be avoided unless doing so is detailed in the installation Page 30 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 4 Installing the Tiller Pilot31If a suppression ferrite is attached to a cable this ferrite should not be removed If the ferrite needs to be removed during installation it must be reassembled in the same positionEMC suppression ferritesWe supply the fluxgate compass and power cables with suppression ferrites fitted Always use these ferrites supplied by Raymarine Connections to other equipmentIf your Raymarine equipment is to be connected to other equipment using a cable not supplied by Raymarine a suppression ferrite MUST always be attached to the cable near to the Raymarine the tiller pin and mounting socketCAUTION As the tiller pilot has a builtin compass make sure that the boats steering compass is at least 750 mm 2 ft 6 in away to avoid the critical dimensionsThe tiller pilot is mounted between the tiller and a fixed point on the structure of your boatTwo dimensions are critical to ensure correct A 589 mm 232 in the distance from the mounting socket to the tiller pinNote This dimension increases if your installation requires a pushrod extension see page

March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 5 Commissioning the Tiller Pilot533The tiller pilot should immediately respond by switching off its display illumination If the illumination does not switch off there is a cabling fault between the tiller pilot and the instruments or control unit52Initial sea trialCAUTION Failure to carry out the sea trial may result in impaired autopilot performance on some compass headings When you have checked that the system is operating correctly you must complete a short sea trial to calibrate the compass The tiller pilot has a builtin calibration capability so you can finetune it to suit your boat its steering system and its dynamic steering supplied from the factory the autopilot is calibrated to provide safe stable control for most boatsDo not attempt to make any permanent changes to the recommended calibration values until you have completed the sea trialYou must carry out the initial sea trialin conditions of light wind and calm water so you can assess the autopilots performance without the influence of strong winds or large wavesBefore starting the sea trial Before carrying out the sea trial you shouldcheck the calibration settings and if necessary reset them to the default values see page 61check the installation to make sure that it is not affected by radio transmissions engine starting etc Calibrating the compass deviation correctionBy completing the following compass correction procedure the tiller pilot can correct its own internal fluxgate compass for most deviating magnetic fields You should complete the Compass Deviation Correction at the beginning of your sea trialTo complete the compass Page 53 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM54ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Pilots1Extend or retract the pushrod so you can place the pushrod end onto the tiller pin2Press and hold standby for 1 second a series of dashes will cycle around the display 3Keeping boat speed below 2 knots use the 10 and 10 keys to turn the boat in slow circles You should take at least 3 minutes to complete each 360 4Keep turning your boat until the display changes to show the amount of deviation the autopilot has detected this should take between 1

the Steering Compass Instrument refer to Steering Compass handbook adjustments to heading alignmentIf the heading alignment requires further adjustment enter Compass Deviation Correction again by pressing standby for 1 second1Press auto to skip Deviation Correction and proceed to Heading the heading as described aboveAutopilot calibrated the compass the following procedure is recommended to familiarize yourself with autopilot onto a compass heading and hold the course steady2Place the pushrod end over the tiller pin3Press auto to lock onto the current heading The tiller pilot should achieve a constant heading in calm sea course to port or starboard in multiples of 1 and 10811306book Page 55 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM56ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Pilots 5Press standby and remove the pilot to return to hand autopilot performanceThe factory setting for rudder gain provides stable control for initial sea trials However different boats can vary widely in their response to the helm and further adjustment to the rudder gain may improve the autopilots steering following test will determine whether the rudder gain is set too high or too low1In clear water and with the autopilot in Auto mode alter course to starboard by 40 by pressing 10 four timesAt cruising speeds a course change of 40 should result in a crisp turn followed by an overshoot of no more than 5If this occurs the rudder gain is set correctlyIf rudder gain is too high the 40 course change will result in a distinct overshoot of more than 5 ACorrect this oversteer by reducing the rudder gain settingIf rudder gain is too low the boats steering performance will be sluggish it will take a long time to make the 40 turn and there will be no overshoot BCorrect this understeer by increasing the rudder gain Page 56 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 5 Commissioning the Tiller Pilot57 Note It is easier to recognize these actions in calm sea conditions where wave action does not mask basic steering to the calibration menu diagram in Chapter 6Adjusting Tiller Pilot Settings for instructions on how to adjust the rudder gain setting3Repeat the test until you achieve crisp course changes with no more than 5 of overshootYou should set the rudder gain to the lowest setting consistent with accurate course keeping This will minimize drive movements and reduce power consumption and wear and tearCorrect 811306book Page 57 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM58ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Page 58 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PMChapter 6 Adjusting Tiller Pilot 6Adjusting Tiller Pilot tiller pilot

correctionUse Calibration Level 10 to switch on Northerly or Southerly heading error correction0 Off1 Northern Hemisphere 2 Southern HemisphereYou might notice that the autopilot tends to be a little less stable on Northerly headings in the higher latitudes of the Northern hemisphere or Southerly headings in the Southern hemisphereThis is caused by the increasing angle of dip of the earths magnetic field at higher latitudes which has the effect of amplifying rudder response on Northerly Southerly headings This error affects all magnetic compasses and gets worse further away from the equatorWith heading error correction switched on the tiller pilot can compensate for this error by automatically adjusting the autopilot gain depending on heading This will provide precise course keeping on all headings 811306book Page 63 Wednesday March 8 2006 312 PM64ST1000 Plus ST2000 Plus Tiller Level 11 boats current latitudeWhen you have switched on heading error correction Level 10 you

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
