Any help would be greatly appreciated in a manual for these 1980's units or your own notes.
Please PM me with anything of use.

Thanks

I have a book for a VDO Logic Wind and one for a VDO Logic Log left. To post them I need an address or an email address to send wiring diagrams. They are from a system which has been replaced and I am just about to throw everything out.

Re: 1980s VDO Wind Indicator System -Replacement Masthead Unit

I had to make a workshop cable (for testing a Logic Wind bought in 1997) to connect the masthead unit to the instrument. For your info below pin-out info for the masthead connector. The pin numbers are visible next to the pins, with some difficulty...
The connector has 7 pins but the central one is not connected. Cable colors are the same between the actual masthead sensor and its connector and the cable between the top of the mast and the instrument.
1 red
2 gray
3 green
4 blue
5 yellow
6 white

As I could not find a connector matching the one on the masthead unit I split a 6 pole female PCI connector from a computer power system into 6 individual connectors.
