RE: ST6001 Smart Pilot Blows Breaker
Hello WWMS,

Of course the drive is the bit that draws the most current in normal use, but we can't rule out a fault in some other component. A simple way to confirm would be to disconnect the drive from the course computer and try again; if the breaker still trips, of course the drive isn't the cause.

For us to give you a more detailed response, we'd really need to know what the other components of the pilot system are (what drive unit model, course computer model) and what the rating of the breaker is. I assume the breaker that's tripping is the one on the course computer's supply, not Seatalk supply or somewhere else?

If in doubt, I'd get your nearest Raymarine-approved technical dealer to have a look.
