I believe #19 was wired to 24VDC when BeBe #387 was built because one of the functions of the FFD is battery voltage and I assume that is the reason for this connection.
Regarding your problem. Tinley Electronics in Britain also does B&G Hydra repair and usually has inventory of used older B&G parts. Email sarah"at"tinley.net www.tinleyelectronics.com www.bandgservice.co.uk Tel: +44 (0)1590 610071
Also, when you get that processor back you may have to go through the installation process described below:
Something triggered a system reset on our B&G instruments in 2008...Boat Speed and the Wind Speed analog instruments appeared reversed. We were at anchor with about 10 knots of wind. The needle on the Boat Speed was at a 9:30 position and the Wind Speed was registering zero. I realized that a position of 9:30 on the Wind Speed would be about 10 knots.
I found that section 5.3.2 of the Hydra 2000 User Manual
details how to “Configure the Analog Indicators.” This procedure allows you to specify which
values are sent to each analog instrument.
I went through the steps in the User’s Manual and configured the Wind
and Boat Speed correctly. If your Amel is like my Amel, the default settings will reverse Boat Speed and Wind Speed and you will have to “Configure the Analog Indicators.”
I copied and saved this posting by Gary Silver almost 9 years ago regarding connecting to the NMEA out on the B&G FFD:
Lastly, I will upload some B&G troubleshooting guides in a few minutes...look for the automated message.
