Hi.

The drivebelt on my simrad wp30 brok yesterday when I was out sailing. I have been able to disasemble it and remove the old belt. Now I need to asemble it again with a new belt I have orderd, but have trouble seeing how simrad has done this. 

Has anyone tried this and have any good advise or link to a good description?

This advice may have come too late, but I have had my unit apart several times.  The trick I found during dis-assembly is to undo the bolts holding the idler wheels the very minimum number of turns to allow the unit to come apart.  Then it is fiddly work with bad language to re-assemble.

So if you have removed them completely, it requires careful tightening of the bolts evenly until the idler wheels just fit inside the housing.

Good luck.

I solved it a different way: I replaced the Simrad with a Raymarine EV-100 wheel pilot. It works better, is more silent, and includes a heading sensor which displays nicely on my Raymarine chartplotter. (Over the years I have replaced all the Simrad stuff with Raymarine. Very happy with Ray and Seatalk ng!)

I solved my WP32 problems also with a Raymarine EV-100 wheel pilot. And by replacing all Simrad equipment with Raymarine. Works very well.

It was possible to re-use the original depth-sensor and log-sensor. Some soldering was required.

Hi Mike, Gunnar, - I have been considering changing the chart plotter to Raymarine - which unit is compatible with the Simrad CP compatible depth and log sensors? Then I might changeover to the EV-100, which I see boasts a user replaceable drive belt.

Interlude, there is no high tech in the basic log and depth sensors.

From the http://airmartechnology.com/xref.html page you can find your echo sensor and the sensors fitting your new echosounder. By comparing the wiring diagrams you can figure out how to solder the raymarine plug to the wires coming from the echo sensor.
Probably the sensor you have is a B22 or B19 model.

I have the Raymarine e7d echo plotter to which the echo sensor is connected.

The log sensor is connected to a Raymarine ITC-5 unit which converts the speed and temperature data to Seatalk NG. Note that you need a functioning temperature sensor connected to the ITC-5 in order for it to recognize that a log sensor is connected.
If the temperature sensor resistor is broken (mine was), you can just connect a 10000 ohm resistor to the temperature inputs on the ITC-5. This will convince the ITC-5 that you have the log sensor connected.

ITC-5 came with the Raymarine wind sensor.

My boat was delivered with a Simrad IS12 combined depth and speed instrument connected to the Airmar depth and log/temp sensors. I replaced the IS12 with a Raymarine i50 tridata instrument which is pin-compatible with the old Airmar sensors. The i50 has Seatalk ng connection as well, providing data to the Raymarine chartplotter. (I used to have an e7, but this year I upgraded to an Axiom 9.) For some years, I used the Simrad IS12 wind sensor connected to the Seatalk ng bus. This is easy, as Simnet, Seatalk ng, and nmea 2000 are the same thing, just different plugs and cables. I replaced the IS12 wind instrument with a Ray i60 wind instrument, which accepted input from the Simrad wind sensor on the ng bus. However, this year I replaced the Simrad sensor with Ray’s wind sensor connected to the i60’s analog input terminals. It all displays nicely on the Axiom.

(Sorry Christian for hijacking your thread into another discussion! ;-)

since the thread allready have changed and I solved my problem by finding a workshop manual and some reverse ingeneering.

Have any of you who has canged to raymarine had simrad radar as well? I have WP30, IS15 and CR34 with radar. Can the radar in some way be reused?

Thanks Mike for the Airmar url - very useful.

Hi Chrit
I have changed from Simrad wp32, Simrad is12, vhf and a Simrad cp34 including Simrad Radar to full Raymarine instrumentation: plotter, AIS, vhf ev100 pilot and i70 instruments.

However, I have kept my radar and cp34 (in the cabin) as a stand alone couple as apparently the pair couldn’t be integrated into the remaining system (Sea Talk).

Ole,
