Navico anemometer

I have a Navico model ATM600 anemometer that is inoperable. The display module indicates that no signal is coming from the masthead unit. I have no circuit diagram for this unit and canít figure out how to disassemble it to investigate its principles of operation eg. is there a reed switch that could be defective? Help.

Re: Navico anemometer

No reed switches; the anemometer uses a hall effect sensor. The Corus system is all canbus therefore it is all digital. Unless you're an electronics technician there is likely no fixing it.

Re: Navico anemometer

Have you checked all the connectors in the cable? Especially the one at the masthead... all subject to deterioration. May be splices or a junction box at the base of the mast, too.

Re: Navico anemometer

A new B&G is only $500, what are you waiting for? Oh and you'll need a display too, that's another $500. Oh yeah and a NMEA2000 backbone, thats about $200 more. Yeah, $1200 what are you waiting for?

You know, some pro techs actually offer helpful advice here on CF...

Jim
I provide plenty of helpful advice and I will continue to provide helpful advice but I don't have to be a stick in the mud to do so.

Is this not helpful? You now know that a new B&G wind system costs $1200 if your starting with nothing. You also know what it takes to get a new system going.

What exactly was your contribution? Seems like you're initiating thread drift too me.

Re: Navico anemometer

You can get an i40 with a Rotavecta for under $400. If that's too much you can put some yarn on the shrouds for free.

Most people don't even need a wind display; why get all fancy with the B&G.

Well, I did suggest checking all the connectors for corrosion... something that has caused issues on many masthead instruments and antennas. The OP was asking for help in diagnosing/fixing his existing instrument, so no drift there.

Your help? Suggesting that he spend 1200 bucks that he may or may not have in the budget. I would have hoped that a "professional technician" would have some more technical advice about troubleshooting the instrument. Guess not.
