My ST60 Wind
stopped communicating with other devices via Seatalk
. I have also a ST60 Tridata and a ST60+ autopilot
control with a S2 autopilot
. Because of this, the ST60 is not able of calculating the true wind
speed and direction anymore and the autopilot cannot be adjusted to keep a course according a wind direction. The first symptom was that it could not set the light intensity for the other displays nor be its own light intensity set by the other devices.
First I checked the Seatalk cables
, after I exchanged the cables
and conector of the three instruments in all configurations possible.
If the ST60 Wind receives 12V directly from battery
, it powers the other instruments by Seatalk. If another instrument receives energy, it powers the ST60 Wind. So, the problem looks like to be related to communication.
I reset the ST60 Wind to factory defaults but it does not helped.
I disassembled the instrument to look for any signal of water
leak or corrosion
but everything looked to be OK.
Is there anything else I can do to try to restabilish the comunication?
