UPPER HELM STATION
COMPENSATING
LINE
AUTOPILOT DETAIL
a) A compensating line is required
between helm stations or the
helm and autopilot power pack.
b) All hoses should be routed with
a gradual rise (particularly the
compensating line) so that air
will not be trapped in the lower
helm station.
c) The second helm station or
autopilot power pack may be
connected at any location
between the upper helm station
and the cylinder. For existing
single station installations the
nylon or copper tubing may be
cut and the tee fittings installed
at any convenient location.
NOTICE
1) SeaStar Helm pumps are fitted with a built in check valve which
are required for installations of additional steering stations and/or
autopilot pumps. If your helm pump is not fitted with an internal
check valve an external valve will be required.
2) Autopilot mfg. requires the volume of your steering cylinder(s) to
provide an adequate autopilot pump, refer to page 12-2 for
cylinder specifications.
Required details for the
addition of an autopilot.
*For NPT helms use HF5502.
