Problems with ST60 TriData Repeater
For some time now i've been having some probs with the my tridata repeater.
Periodically the unit shutsdown , restarts on its own with a bleep and all the logdata is lost.
The total logdata stored in the memory is not lost though.
Ok , i can check the distance of my daily trips by using the total log , but it must be said , the daily log is much handier isn't it.
I was wondering, what could be the reason for that switching off and on again. Its just the tridata unit that goes blank for a second. And as far as i know , there's no circumstantial reason for it to go haywire , it does that in random way. Lets say once or twice everyday.
Has anyone experienced the same malfunction ? And if so , how to correct it ?
Thanks alot for the input
Check the SeaTalk cable is fully pushed in on the back of the unit and that the connectors are not green. This happens sometimes as the connector is a 'push-fit' and there is no mecahnical retention per-se.
Raymarine tells me that the biggest problem they come across with ST60-era devices is that low voltage makes them mess up. Is there any chance that you're low on battery voltage and a pump kicks in to drop voltage a little more making the display go away for a second?
I will indeed check the given advice.
Perhaps the problem is allready solved without my knowing it at this time.
You see , on my other thread " GPS receiver in parallel " , I stated that my raystar 120 went broke , and i must admit , from the start I had some woes with this troublesome model. Maybe , just maybe , the gps receiver projected some glitches to the ST60 because the rayman seatalk supply was connected on the seatalk output/input of that tridata repeater.
I'll see what the next season will bring , but in the mean time I might check all the seatalk connectors again and clean the contacts thoroughly.
Thanks for the tips.
