B&G h1000 pilot handheld wires meaning?

Hi,

Is there anyone who can help me to reveal the wire meanings of h1000 autopilots handheld unit? I would like to DIY remote handheld but I cannot find on which pin should it be connected.

Thanks for help.

Re: B&G h1000 pilot handheld wires meaning?

i don't know the H1000, we have a Hydra 2000 system. Does the H1000 have a ACP driving the motor for the autopilot?

When our handheld failed, we made a DIY solution. All wires go back to the ACP, for the LED and 6 switches:
  • +/- 10
  • +/- 1
  • on/off
If it helps, I ca to dig into my paperwork and find the connection terminals for on the ACP for each switch. Let me know.

Dirk

Re: B&G h1000 pilot handheld wires meaning?

just found it:

On the ACP the connenctions are color coded, if you have the proper B&G cable, the wire color are the same.

The following color combinations are the ones connected when a (momentary) switch is pressed.

AP ON: black-white
AP OFF: black-brown

+10: black-yellow
-10: black-blue

+1: black-violet
-1: black-green

that leaves a red wire unused, most likely for the LED, which I didn't bother to hook up.

Hi again,

I think the red wire means resume to the last known steering which is also available on the handeld.
Thanks again

Cheers
