Latest Digital Carbon Fibre Mast Head Wind Transducer plus Seatalk Interface, all cables and full upgrade instructions.
The spares for the old ST50/80 analogue mast head unit are no longer available, until now there has been no replacement and the only solution was to upgrade the whole system to ST60. This upgrade kit replaces the old mast head unit with a state of the art carbon fibre digital unit which through the Seatalk interface allows your old analogue instrument to work with up to date digital technology. No new software or calibration required*, upgrade is completely "plug and play"
All necessary cables are included along with specific instructions for installation of the upgrade.
This solution saves complete replacement of your instrument system as well as being future proof, compatible with ST60 or any NMEA compatible instrument system.
Two years warranty
Mast Head Transducer
12/24 Volt Operation
Current Consumption 50mA
20 Metre Cable
IP67 Water Proof
Stainless Steel Bearings
The Mast Head Transducer has no top bearing to seize or go rusty, instead the whole top assembly is sealed from the weather with the wind vane rotating on a fixed shaft through a precision machined self-lubricating plastic housing. Similarly the bottom wind speed bearings are stainless steel, again running in a self-lubricating plastic housing.
It is factory calibrated for forward mounting and is genuinely "plug and Play" but can be programmed using a PC running standard windows software where adjustments can be made to Wind Angle Alignment, Damping Factor, Output Repetition Rate, Wind Speed Scale and Wind Speed Damping.
Unit can be disconnected from the cable and removed when stepping the mast.
12/24 Volt Operation
NMEA and Seatalk 1 Inputs
NMEA and Seatalk 1 Outputs
PC RS232 Output
Used in it's basic mode for this application only the NMEA in and Seatalk out are used, simple connections, no programming required. For expanded use in large systems it can be used to combine both Seatalk and NMEA data to NMEA, Seatalk and PC outputs for PC navigation packages such as Raymarine Raytech.
Full instructions for each unit, specific instructions covering the upgrade and seatalk 1 interconnect cable for connection to your ST50/80 and the interface unit.
