Re: In mast furler - Brake - Amel 54

Stefan Schaufert
 

To bring this story to an end:

 

I disassembled the brake as far as possible.

It is a simple electric powered magnet completely embedded in a resin, thus you can not check the wires etc..

It holds (usually) a ring of metall the moment you use the furler.

The ring is (all the other time) pressing against a brake disc (plastic, connected with the shaft of the electric motor via a gearwheel) by 8 small spiral springs - arranged in 2 circles.

I checked the wires going in to the magnet. There are appr. 25V when furling. But the magnet was not reacting. I „helped“ him by pressing and then it worked.

Thus I assume the magnet is getting „old“, reduced the springs from 8 to 4 (keeping the outer ones).

 

Now it is working fine again and there is still enough pressure to hold the foil.

 

Be aware of the 3 screws on the outside of the device. They are for adjusting the space/ pressure to the brake disc. So when there is slip (e.g. the main is furling out itself in a gust), you have to turn them a bit out. When it seems like the brake is not releasing the furler (enough), the screws need to be tightened a bit (pressing the disc more to the springs and the magnet).

I assume that was what Alexander (A54#156) meant with, „It (the brake) needs a carefull synchronisation with the furler engine.“ 

 

You can take the brake out of the furler by only disconnecting the down cap. The brake is the first thing you see when the cap is open.

Overall, the access is much more complex and difficult than the thing itself.


Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all of you.

Re: Adjusting Ultraflex steering cables?

Hi Scott, I think someone has already said this but adjusting the cables to remove play is simple. Same method as used to adjust brake cable on a bicycle. My cables have over 50,000 miles and are fine.

Hi Scott,

Glad to hear that worked for you. For the other part you mentioned, unless the free play is excessive, I wouldn't worry too much. I've never investigated that part, but perhaps you could unbolt it from the stringer and rotate it 90deg to change the wear points and see if the play is any better. Not sure what replacement parts are available. If the steering is smooth and the cables move free and easy through the full range of motion, then you should be fine.

Hi Bill,

It is odd that Amel did not fit the red stop button on all the 54’s.

Looking forward to getting back to Amelia in the spring and fingers crossed that the vaccine rollout will be well underway and we can go back to some normality.

All the best

If your E-Stop button does not want to work a new actuator rated IP65 or higher, preferably IP67, would solve the issue and should not be affected by moisture in the future.

Dear All,

 

For information I have an Amel 54 Hull 21 and I do not have that red stop button!

 

Cordialement,

Hi Bill et al,

My 54 Hull 019 had the red stop button from when I bought her in 2017. In addition there is a description of its use and photo in the owners manual.

My feeling is that it was installed from new, at the factory.

Jamie, Amel added it later than your production. I would add it if I were you. Please do not quote me, but I thought Amel had a kit for any 54 owner to install this if it wasn't originally installed by Amel

Wolfgang, maybe this switch you are referencing is only on late model A54s. I do not have one to my knowledge.
Where is it located on your boat?
Thanks,
