ST60+ Wind Installation Recommendation

Hi Folks,

I am planning my ST60+ Wind installation this weekend and was wondering if anyone has any pointers and gotchas to watch out for.

My mast is stepped so I am going to be cutting the cable running up the mast and putting in a brick connector. The junction box will then be inside the boat right by the hull entry point.

Any recommendation on the brick connector? Is there a better way of doing this as the manual doesn't really talk about how to connect the cable at the foot of the mast when the mast is stepped.

Thanks,

W

Re: ST60+ Wind Installation Recommendation

I did one just two weeks ago - the brick will work fine. I hooked mine into a ITC-5 (built in color coded spade connector's).

I'm assuming you'll be taking it from the brick to a ST60+ display?

Re: ST60+ Wind Installation Recommendation

Note of caution from the Ray manual:

"Please note the ST40/i40/i50/i60 and ST60+ displays cannot calibrate the iTC-5. Only the i70 has full transducer calibration. The ST70/ST70+ can calibrate the Depth, Wind and Speed/Temp transducers (not Rudder or Compass).


If you don't have an ST70/ST70+ or i70 in your system, then the ST40/i40/i50/i60/ST60+ displays must be interfaced directly to the relevant analogue transducers"
