Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

Hello to all.

For all those interested, the autopilot circuitry is in the message.
I decided to finalize my autopilot. How to control 8 functions using the remote control with 4 buttons?

I will remake it later on a remote control with 8 buttons.

Hi Alex, great job.

Could you please be so kind and repost the circuit.

Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

Hi!

I have an old Autohelm 2000 which I like very much.
I found your thread when searching for a way to build a remote for it.

Iīm not looking for a wireless solution, I just want a simple wired remote option to use under the sprayhood in heavy rain.

Since you have so much knowledge about these old autopilots, would a wired remote be a simple thing to build?

All the best..

Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

Hey.
It seems to me that a wired remote control is not the best solution, since it will turn out to be more difficult and there may be problems with water resistance.
Why don't you want a wireless solution?


Regards, Alex.

Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

Do you mean it is a technically more complex thing to build than a wireless?

I was thinking of putting it permanently alongside my instruments under the sprayhood.
Waterproofing would then be fairly easy.

I know about the wireless i3dgear.com solution but I was hoping a wired remote would be an easy thing to build.

Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

In my opinion, a wired remote has no advantages!
The i3dgear.com wireless solution is very expensive!
In my case, the cost was about $ 10 and 3 hours of personal time ...
If you need a detailed description with photos - I will send!

Sorry, I didn’t understand the protocol that is used in the wired solution, so I can’t tell you.
Regards, Alex.

Re: Adding wireless remote to a old Autohelm 3000

I checked the operation of the remote control using optical relays on a cruise on Lake Onega for 3 weeks. Everything works fine, no crashes noted!
