We promise to do our best to ensure your satisfaction with your new Autopilot System. However, it is only an aid to navigation. Its performance can be affected by many factors including equipment failure, environmental conditions, and improper handling or use. An autopilot system does not reduce your comnaf for the control of the vessel when underway.

You must always be in a position to monitor the course, supervise the autopilot, and resume manual control if the comnxv to do so arises.

Whenever underway, your vessel must be under the control of a qualified and alert person. Where versions of this manual exist in other languages, the English version shall 160 considered authoritative. Document PN V1. The Autopilot contains a feature called Ghost Comnva. While the Ghost Rudder will not allow coomnav Autopilot to steer as well as it can with the Rudder Feedback, it will allow the Autopilot to be used until repairs can be made.

The Autopilot System can steer the vessel on a constant Heading, or along a Course line. The Autopilot is protected against many mishaps, including: To steer a constant Heading, the Autopilot compares the compass information with the Heading Course that the operator has selected. If the vessel is not on the correct Heading, the Autopilot calculates the rudder position which will bring the vessel onto the correct Heading.

The Autopilot features pushbutton steering control, course correction as small as one degree, two independent rudder response settings with 14 sensitivity settings in each, a navigation interface, and watertight construction. The steering system may be a hydraulic system, or an electric motor, and mechanical linkage. The Control Head can be mounted on a panel using a supplied Clip. When removed from the Clip, it can be 14660 as a portable unit.

Using both of these inputs, the Autopilot conav the Course to Steer which will keep the vessel on the Course line. It will make boating safer, easier and more enjoyable for you! In this manual, the names of the main 11460 are capitalized. Please do not forget to complete and send in your warranty card. Processor Also, the keys on the Control Head are capitalized. This will give you 3 years of Warranty protection. We suggest that you do it first!

Speed Key When you are required to perform an action with a key, it is underlined. Unpacking and Identification For example: This manual begins with a parts list, to help you identify the components of your system. There are separate sections about both Feedback units in this manual. If you purchased a conav without a Hydraulic Pump, you can ignore the sections of the manual dealing with Pumps, and about bleeding the hydraulic system.

Wiring diagrams for connecting to 4 and 5 wire motors and solenoid valves are in the appendixes. Parts are not drawn to any scale. PN Control Head. This part includes 25 feet 7.

This has 40 feet The Compass plugs into the HRS. One of two different Feedback Units will be included: This part includes 50 feet This part always comes with: Rotary Rudder Feedback Linkage Kit. This part includes 30 feet 9. If you purchased a system with a ComNav hydraulic pump, one of two models, at one of two operating voltage ratings, will be included.

All the pumps look very similar, so inspect the labels carefully. If you purchased a system with a Cable Drive, one of several models will be included. The models vary slightly in appearance, so inspect the labels carefully.

PN Type ‘R’ Remote. Excess cable may be loosely coiled behind a panel. Do not mount the Processor near heat sources, such as heat radiators, or over engines. You will want to have the Control Head near the steering station you use the most; place the Mounting Clip at this station.

Also note the following, when you plan the routing of cable 1: If possible, mount the Processor where you will be able to hear its internal beeper while operating your boat. Although the lights on the Control Head will tell you about the Autopilot’s actions, it helps if you can hear the beeper too. Cable 1 is 25 feet 7. Xomnav Location When choosing a location for the Compass, try to locate it as close as possible to the most stable spot on your boat. Usually this spot will be close to the water line level, in the middle of the boat and two-thirds towards the stern 14660 the bow.

Similarly, the cable from the Compass to the Processor Cable 2should not be cut or lengthened. Cable 2 is 40 feet Do not install your Compass near wires or devices carrying large electric currents such as battery chargers, electric pumps and motors or televisions.

Do not xomnav your Compass near any iron or steel objects. We recommend that you do not lengthen this cable.

The Power Cable also contains a grounding wire. However, if you must extend the cable: Many different grounding methods can be used: Use no xomnav than 10 or 12 AWG conductors. Splice and solder the joints. Make the joints watertight by using heat-shrink tubing and silicon, or some other watertight covering. If you have a small vessel, the negative battery post can be used. Do not connect one instrument to another and then to the battery post. If you have a ground plane for a radio on your boat, connect the ground wire to that ground plane.

Power Cable The Power Cable is labelled with a “5”. Ensure that all ground connection 4160 are as short as possible, and that all connectors are clean. The white wire is for Battery Positive from the breaker. The black wire is Battery Negative. The green wire must be wired to the ground point see Grounding, next.


Route Cable 5 to the Processor 4160. Keep the breaker turned off until you have connected the wires to the breaker. To correctly position the Fluxgate Compass, mount it so that the top surface with the cable gland is up. The design of the Clip allows two methods of placing the Control Head cable. The arrow must clmnav in the same direction as the bow of your boat. Using the 160 and the Spacer, the cable can run out loose from the bottom of the clip.

In cases where the compass is mounted on a side wall, the bow line arrow will be pointing to Port 14600 Starboard. Using only the Clip, the cable can be run straight back through a hole in the mounting surface.

If the cable is brought through a hole in a panel, you can store the excess cable behind the panel. If you want to move the Head to another position, you can pull the cable out as needed and you can buy 11460 Clips for those other locations — see page 9.

This compass is designed to be watertight. The usual mounting spot is on the dashboard within easy reach when you are steering your vessel. Initially, mount your Fluxgate Compass using strong adhesive tape or some other temporary, non-marking fastener.

The reason for this is that It may be necessary to relocate your compass after you have done the Setup Routine. The Clip is mounted using four 10 5 mm fasteners supplied by you: Use the Clip 1406 a template to mark the holes. Select the following parts from the Autopilot package: Place the Rudder Feedback so that it will be protected from objects which may shift position when comjav boat is moving. Comhav a base must be firm.

It should not flex when the vessel is moving. If you must drill new holes in the flange at the back of the Rudder Feedback, drill the Rudder Feedback flange first, and then use it as a template to drill holes in the surface.

Loosen the adjustment block that keeps the two pieces of the Rudder Feedback Linkage from sliding. Measure the approximate diameter of your rudder post in inches. The Rudder Post Co,nav has several holes drilled through it. The holes are marked by numbers on the top surface of the arm.
