Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Efector Anchor Chain Counter Sensor

Keith Tice
 

Hi Heinz,

Do you remember if you bought the IB5072 or IB5096.

The difference is NPN vs PNP …

Thomas Peacock installed the IB5072 and it worked out of the box… But I installed the IB5096...

If you installed the IB5072, then I will replace my IB5096 with an IB5072.

I found the following information, but that does not mean it applies to this circuit.
Generally, the PNP transistor can replace NPN transistors in most electronic circuits, the only difference is the polarities of the voltages, and the directions of the current flow. PNP transistors can also be used as switching devices.

Thanks,

Hatch handle seat (corners) for Goiot tradition series

Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)
 

Hi All,

I'm looking for suggestions regarding the replacement of these failing hatch handle seats. Several of them are cracking in various places. Rig-Rite has them in cast aluminum which is nice, part# Goi HT-HSC. Unfortunately, they are quoted at $80 USD per piece ($640 USD to replace all of them!). There's got to be a less expensive option out there. Is anyone else looking to replace these parts? Has anyone already found a good solution or source?

Hello Randall,

I had my cable custom made at The Satellite Phone Store in San Diego.  Satellitephonestore.com...

There are probably cheaper places to purchase a custom cable, but would have to research.  I paid about $75 for mine.  Make sure you look at the specs of the cable, most important is loss per meter at about 1.6 GHz.

Re: The ultimate cockpit table?

Randall,

Totally agree 

Interesting that your bracket is inside the mizzen “recess”. I see you have a padeye that may get in the way, but otherwise i found that by inverting the tightening handle at the top of the vertical arm, i could swing the banquet cockpit table open even with the Lagun mounting plate on the front face of that recess.

My point is. How long have they been building that table in the way. I had to get in the engine bay on passage. Hold it in the air, while I reach for and lift the floor. You all have had to.

Re: More Options for Rub Rail Inserts

Right now we have eight people on the list.
  • Pat McAneny 
  • Kent Robertson
  • Joel Potter
  • Steven Davis
  • Dave Wilcox
  • Jeremey Hermans
  • Mark Garver
  • Eric Freedman
Plus one for Harmonie, makes nine. If I missed anyone, give a shout!

I am sending an email to everybody who expressed interest with status and details so we don't clog up the group here.  If anybody else wants to get on the list, send an email to "greatketch (at) yahoo . com"  We'll have a final price, including a shipping estimate, by the end of the week.  We'll be finalizing the production run shortly after that.  

I am expecting we'll be getting white, like the more recent production runs from Amel.  Matching the original "red" would be a custom formulation and quite a bit more expensive.


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Efector Anchor Chain Counter Sensor

Thomas Peacock
 



Hi Keith,
Boy, stretching my memory banks. 
The normally on/off disparity of the sensor relay did not seem to make a difference. I had actually bought another relay to add that would have reversed the signal, but did not need it. 
I do remember that, after putting the new sensor on, I also experienced some trouble getting the counter to work. I finally started waving a steel box cutter or some other steel device back and forth just a millimeter or so from the sensor, and that seemed to work, thus showing integrity of the system. I think I just tweaked the distance then, and it worked. The sensor is just a proximity device, the button on the windlass is not magnetic. I believe its activating distance is 20 mm or less. It will not sense at the distance of the drum, which is about 30 mm. 
You can also try testing the voltage coming from the sensor as you operate the windlass, it should spike with each turn. Make sure the three sensor wires are correct. Also, double-check that you’re getting 12 volts from the Sailor to the counter system. Make sure that the three wires are hooked up from the grey box and go to the windlass control device in the cockpit, which is 24 volts. One is ground, one is always hot (if breaker is on), and one is only hot when the windlass joystick is activated. Also, remember that you must have the joystick engaged for the counter to work, just waving steel by the sensor won’t work. 
Let me know if you have success

I do think the standard cockpit table is one of the worst features of the Amel 54’s cockpit. It’s heavy and always in the way. I removed it and put at our house. Currently using a small foldable table doing it’s job excellent. I did consider the Lagun table as well so it’s great to see your positive report on it. I don’t think the table is carried by the chandlers on St. Maarten. So I have some time to consider other options as well. I really like the thing done by a fellow Amelian where he replaced the base of the steering chair with a stainless column, resulting in a improved folding of the standard table to facilitate the opening of the engine room hatch without moving the table. Obviously that is much more work and uses quite some expensive pieces of stainless.

My chain counter recently stopped counting.
Before it stopped it was counting when we weren't looking and not counting when the anchor was moving.  
I found that the Efector IB5076 induction sensor is no longer produced, but that the IB5096 is available.
The only difference in the data sheet is that the signal NPN for IB5076 is PNP for IB5096. https://www.ifm.com/ch/en/product/IB5076 
https://www.ifm.com/ch/en/product/IB5096   
Should this be a plug compatible replacement?  
I mean, one is on a lot and turns off and the other is off a lot and turns on. It is pulsing and the counter should just be counting pulses.  
What is the opinion here?

Randal.  On our A54-152 the table stores in a tucked forward position so the engine hatch opens unencumbered.  
I thought it was this way for everyone until we were parked next to another A54 in Opua.  What a nightmare to get into the engine room!  I think an easy modification to pull forward could be done.  Ill post a photo of our scenario when we get back to the boat shortly.
Amel does listen!

Just to keep the hype for a good thing. Here some pics of basically the same bracketing. I don't Know who started this good thing, but this was on my 54. I will say the previous owners did upgrades a world traveller could appreciate. The one thing I plan for in the future is the stainless reinvent of the helm seat bracket, I believe is on Attika That is just brilliant. I will copy a pic from the owners group pics.

Great table ideas.

If I were to ever be a boat builder.
My first question to an owner of a boat that I had built, would be. What did you not like?. Why? Well, if I change what you don't like I will make them better.
My point is. How long have they been building that table in the way. I had to get in the engine bay on passage. Hold it in the air, while I reach for and lift the floor. You all have had to.

Ann-Sofia, Diane and I were on your boat in 2015 in Prickly Bay ,Grenada, and that is when we first saw the bracket and bought one when we got home. So you get credit for our's . Say Hi! to Jonas .

I wonder if not S/Y Lady Annila is that friend of a friend. 😊

We have had that solution since 2007, and I think our pictures is here on the forum some where.

Glad that our idea has been adopted by so many.
