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 responsibility of the skipper to ensure        the safety of the vessel at all

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                         established10                                                       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         If your system is

    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 them20                                                   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        responsibility 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 boxChapter

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 lateChapter 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

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                      accuracy and is the default calibration setting                     Response Level 2 Minimum Deadband provides the tightest                      course keeping possible However tighter course keeping results in                      increased power consumption and drive unit activity                     Response Level 3 also Minimum Deadband provides the tightest                      course keeping possible by introducing yaw damping requires a                      rate gyro and is

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                         42 Setting Up CodeLock                         CodeLock is set on the ST600R using the Intermediate Setup

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

                        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 transmissions engine starting etc                          In some installations 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 operation64                                                              ST600R Autopilot

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

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                        steering68                                                    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 lowChapter 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

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.

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 numerious 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.
