[CA] Wind vane showing no wind speed - astroebel - 12-25-17 03:53 PM

I removed the wind vane transducer and refitted it using some dielectric grease to stop any corrosion. Now it shows 3 dotted lines instead of wind speed. The yellow wire voltage to the screen wire is 3.5 volts which is normal. Are there any further tests I can do to check what the problem might be? It was working perfectly before.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum astroebel,

Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject. The reported fault may be indicative a failure within the transducer or within the instrument (or iTC-5/pod). Whereas the measured voltage for the leads associated with speed was within the voltage range specified (please note that you should also observe some fluctuation in the voltage), then the fault would appear to be rooted in the instrument to which the wind transducer has been interfaced or in the transducer's connections to the instrument. Accordingly, it is recommended that the connections to the instrument be inspected and if found to be sound, that the instrument (or iTC-5/pod) be sent to Raymarine’s Product Repair Center to be bench checked / serviced.
