[CA11] R28171 Wind fails in high winds
I installed a new R28171 Wind Transducer in my boat 3 years ago with ST-70 displays, and an already installed and wired Wind module. I also changed out one of ST-70 displays for an ST-60 mechanical wind instrument and wired it to an existing ST-70 display using a Raymarine adapter cable.
Everything works correctly until the wind speed gets up to around 25 knots. Then all the displays showing wind stop working. The ST-60 instrument goes to the 12 O'clock position for wind direction with 3 dashes shown for wind speed. The ST-70 displays do not show any wind direction or speed. All other ST-70 displays continue to show depth and boat speed correctly. No problem also with my E120W.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Andrew,

After the failure occurs, does the problem abate when the wind slows?

Hi Chuck

Everything starts to work perfectly again when the wind speed goes down to around 15~20 knots.

Andrew,

Our instrument repair technician is a bit baffled by this report. It is possible that there may be a problem with the wind pod or iTC-5. It is recommended that the problem be fault isolated by disconnecting the wind transducer from the wind pod and then temporarily connect the transducer to the ST60 Wind instrument's transducer terminals.
