[LW11] installation of EV-1 sensor on a steel boat
Hello

For my Raymarine autopilot, I have to change my failed x30 central unit for a new UC200 with a EV-1 sensor.
My boat has a steel hull, including the deck.
Could I install this sensor directly on the deck or even inside the boat? Or do I need to elevate it in the mast, as it was done for the fluxgate sensors
Thank you for advice.

Dear getaway,

Thank you for your post.

The installation inside a steel vessel or fixing to a steel deck is not recommended. It is recommended it is elevated above the metal surfaces to reduce deviation, by at least a metre. Please refer to the installation manual for further information available here.

Many Thanks
Louise
