WH Auopilot to EV400 upgrade

Hi All,

I am upgrading my autopilot from a WH P3C to a Raymarine EV400.

So far so good - however I have one question on where the Motor +/- wires from the EV400 should connect to?

I have left the WH Autopilot motor and motor controller installed. Note the WH auto pilot has several boxes - a "brains unit" "motor controller" and "motor".

So do I wire the Raymarine EV400 Motor +/- direct to the motor?

Cheers

-Al

Yes, once you verify that the Ray unit can handle the current requirements (amps) of the WH motor and clutch.
