[DG11] ST7000 Watch Alarm
hi there

i have recently purchased a 40' cat fitted with raymarine instruments including a ST7000 autopilot.

this autopilot has the watch alarm enabled (so beeps every 4 mins) but when scrolling through 'Display' there is no WATCH page to allow it to be turned off

apparently there is a permanent watch alarm (PWA) feature available on the ST7000 - but how can i tell if this is enabled ?

if the PWA is enabled, how can i disable / remove this ?

any other ideas / suggestions how to stop this alarm ? seriously considering just removing the 'beeper' but this would silence ALL alarms (eg XTE etc) the raymarine plotter goes off in sympathy as well, so might be a step too far...

i know the pilot is 20 years old, but in all other respects it works fine and it would be a sorry state of affairs if necessary to dump it.

Hi Chris,

The ST7000 Autopilot when connected to a T300 or T100 course computer had a permanent watch alarm feature, which when enabled was a permanent feature. It was implemented to satisfy a requirement for light commercial use at that time, subsequently different regulations were enacted and the feature was removed.

Once the watch alarm has been triggered, there was a detailed process to launch it, it could not be disabled since it was permanently enabled in the course computer. the only way to remove it was to return the course computer to our Factory workshops.
