Full Version: [CA11] Smart Controller won't display Speed Through Water
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I have a new install which includes the EV-200 Autopilot Pack with Mechanical Linear Drive, i70 wind, speed, depth pack, Smart Controller and ST1 to STNG adapter. Also connected to the network is a Standard Horizon GX1700 VHF which provides GPS data including Lat/Long, COG and SOG. The VHF is connected through an Actisense STNG-A06045.

During commissioning, I was able to see speed through the water on the Smart Controller, but not on the I70. I had to fiddle with settings on the P70s to confirm the source of Speed data as the ITC-5/DSC800 paddle wheel. Once those setting were confirmed, the I70 was able to show speed through the water (along with all other data on the network).

The problem is that although the Smart Controller now displays all other data on the network (including Water Temp, AWA, AWS, COG, SOG, Depth, etc) it no longer displays Speed. The fields for Speed on the Smart Controller show as dashes.

Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Here are the details of my configuration:

I would once again recommend using i70 MFID to manually configure the iTC-5 as the speed data source and then reboot the entire system. The system should then be tested while underway to ensure that STW is being sensed by the system.
Thanks Chuck!

I did a factory reset on the I70 and then selected the ITC-5 as the source for depth, speed and temperature (instead of Auto). And Voila! Now the speed through the water shows on both the I70 and the smart controller. I still need to redo magnetic interference,
calibrate speed through the water with SOG and redo the wind calibration and I'll be all set.
You're welcome.
