Autohelm 6000 Voltage

Does anyone know how the voltage is setup on an Autohelm 6000 course computer. I found a replacement for mine that smoked due to loose connections on the pump side spade clips. I want to keep this as a backup. I found a working replacement that was being used on a boat with 24 volts.

On my board where the inputs connect, in the upper corner it shows "12/24 V" in white numerals. There are no other voltage markings. None on the board for the pump, the long one with the power transistors connected to it.

The manual is not real clear on this. The only instances are quote "12volts, (24 volt optional)" and breaker sizes for the different voltages

I was under the impression that it was dual voltage.

Will this one work or did RM sell two different units.

Thanks

Hi Glen,

It's been a while since your request has been posted. Hope your problem has been solved. I'm the builder and first owner of your Goderich. I'll be interested to get some news of her after nearly 15 years since we sold her to Louis Gentry.

I bought the boat from Louis after hurricane Ike. It was a total loss for Louis. Beat up, demasted, a total wreck, and I do mean totaled, however no water entered the outstanding interior. With several calls to Ted Brewer and his help, it took almost a year and a half to get her going again. Most people think it is a fiberglass hull, until they have been on board for about 30 minutes.
I have had three rust problem area that I had to repair.
The cockpit storage area where the remote auto helm control was located.
The area where the anode was welded onto the hull at the bilge.
The front part of the dorado boxes.

I cant private message you, but my email adderess is glenmiller@millairac.com
Looking forward to hearing some of your stories on the boat.

Glen Miller
