    Bennett trim tab indicators-gctid353825

    Never mind sorry I asked

    #2
    I have the bennett automatic system an never use it. The only time I look at the indicators is after leveling out the ride to see what angles they are running at. I may glance at them while docking just to make sure I have raised them all the way up.

      I never understood why you would need indicators..... you should be able to tell where they are at by the attitude of your boat , No?

          I have the NMEA Lowrance setup and can display the tabs on the LMF 400 guage, Globalmap 6600c Chartplotter, and even on the Sonar.

              I added a Bennett Trim Tab indicator to the Bennett tabs Bayliner installed on the boat.

              You can see the indicator on the far right of the helm panel.

                    Actually the tab indicators are pretty handy.

                    For example if you come off of plane and get into a following sea with your tabs down it can be very danderous.

                    If you're up on plane and one tab is having to be deployed allot more than the other its a good indication that you need to re-arrange your load.

                      SteveI still have the control switches as you have. The indicators on the helm panel show position but do not have any ability to control the tabs.This indicator system was a fairly big job involing removing the tabs at the attachment point to install position sensors and running cables from each tab to the helm. This is not just a simple control replacement.----------Why I installed the Bennett tab position indicator.I found I was pulling the tabs up to reset them and then working them down as needed.Having the indicators allowed me to pay more attention to things around me and less to setting up the tabs.

                        Steve,The EIC electronic indicator control fits in the same "footprint" as the rocker switch, so it can replace it.Here is a link to the installation instructions http://"http://www.bennetttrimtabs.c...structions.pdfTomBennett Marine Attached files http://baylinerownersclub.org/media/....jpg[/img]

                          Tom, will that switch work with the automatic bennett system?

                            Yes, the EIC has a relay module that will replace the one for the Auto Tab Control. There is a plug for the ATC to connect into it.
