Autohelm 6000 (preST); wind vane input

Hello, Can anyone tell me what kind of signals/voltages this autopilot is expecting. The wind vane connector has a label for Rd, Bl, Grn, White .
I guess rd /white is PowSuppl. + and -; and Bl/Gr is the classical 90 shifted Voltage between 2 and 6V? but I am not shure since I have no vane.
Can someone help me on that old stuff. Thanks

Re: Autohelm 6000 (preST); wind vane input

Have you any idea of the part numbers for the autopilot and windvane? There's quite a lot of historic information, servicing manuals etc on line but you need part numbers. For instance our Autohelm course computer is Z83 and the controller Z82 - typical Autohelm part numbers - and I think full service and repair manuals for these exist.

Thanks fryr answ.
Dont find the numbers you are asking for but I found this:
AUTOHELM 6000 from about the year 1988
PCB's in course computer are labelled NAUTECH 110488

POWERDRIVE PCB: 3015 010A
power transistors: SM8751 and 8746

MAIN PCB: 3015-009-155-c
Chips on main PCB:
Philips MAB 8049H A135
TMS 2764-20JL LHP8745
SN74LS373N
CD4066BE
CA3130E
CD4051BE
BDW93B 8747
L487 88745
BDW94B SN8750

Terminal PCB labelled NAUTECH 160388
3015 004 issue B


Maybe this can help to identify? Its a preST 6000 type from 1988 or a year earlier.

Hi,

did you manage to find out what was the output of the windvane? I assume part number for windvane you are looking for is z034
