The Raymarine Autopilot Amel
installed on BeBe #387 is a 400G AST Autopilot Computer
E12092 with a 7001+ E12099 Control head. These are 24VDC.
There is no 24VDC to 12VDC step-down transformer involved.
There is a 24VDC to 12VDC step-down transformer for the
Hydra 2000 instruments.
Regardless of whether he has a 12VDC
or a 24VDC system, the voltage is probably low. Check the
battery bank voltage with all charging OFF. What is the
voltage? These electronic sensors are sometimes fooled by a
single battery that has died. Each one of the battery bank
should be load-checked and preferably with a digital battery
load-check device.
It
would help me and others help if Terry would verify the
Course Computer part number and the actual voltage at the
course computer.

Good morning,



I am posting this question ob behalf Terry on SV Libby SM2K
#196 (who is currently in the Pacific and only has Satellite
access).



...something strange just happen with our Autopilot.

We are curently sailing down the East side of Fakarava with
the Autopilot on.



The pilot started beeping and Low Battery is being displayed
and the Autopilot disengaged it self.

In the Manual it states that this will happen if the Control
box sees voltage less than 11.0 VDC for ore than 20
seconds.



I can't start digging until I get to our anchorage in
the South Pass which is still 15 miles away.

Guessing I need toncheck the output of the DC to DC
converter first. I will then check to DC voltage to the
Control box.



We have an ST7000 installed.

Have you heard of any such issue?



Terry



On behalf of Terry, thanks in advance, Alexandre
