B&G autopilot trouble
Posted 06 August 2012 - 11:44 AM
Can this be due to a faulty compass sensor? Can the sensor be positoned in a bad place (this since there a a few power cables near by but I did try to use all pumps and lights when the boat was moored with no cange in the pilot)? I tried with a hand held compass and it seems pretty good though. Any other ideas?

I used a fixed speed so that's not really a problem. Trouble is I don't get a error code at all.

You may want to check to see if you have a Halcyon 2000 Compass or a ACP Remote Compass Unit. Sometimes an entry (16 or 18) is the wrong one for the compass you have under HSRC in commissioning.
And to be really, really sure, see to it that the heading node is not only set in in the pilot display, but in the FFD's (if any) COURSE (CALIBRATION) and COURSE D/R (CALIBRATION) too.

I will now try a new compass sensor and see if there will be a difference...

if you are using 2.01 or 2.03 software it is a bug in the pilot software. I have the same issue, sent logs to B&G (Jeremy) years ago, (2.03 was used in the VDG 3 year ago), just like with the pilot not tacking correctly but no luck. I have 2 ACPs and both the same issue. if you are into electronics I can post how to get a ttl to the pilot and you can see the command being issued to OFF. let me know.
Worked like a charm. For a while. Then goes into Stand by all of a sudden. When I try to engage it again nothing happens. After several trials I get fault 105 and the pilot says 360. After even more trials the pilot works again, for a while...
