- Automagic – No lengthy calibration procedures to perform. No compass calibration required. Plug and play connections
- Easy to install – Freedom from the restrictions of conventional heading sensors. EV sensor core can be installed above or below deck. Install upside-down or off the vessel’s centre line.
- Aerospace technology – 9-axis precision monitoring of pitch, roll, yaw and heading
- Fuel efficient – Evolution autopilots steer so accurately they will save fuel and get you to your destination faster
This pack includes:.
The EV-1 Sensor Core is designed for Evolution mechanical and hydraulic autopilot systems. SeaTalkNG networking enables a single cable connection for power and data to the Evolution ACU (actuator control unit) and extended SeaTalkNG and NMEA2000 networks.
ACU-200 – The rugged ACU (Actuator Control Unit) delivers reliable autopilot drive power and also provides power to the SeaTalkNG bus.
The p70 Autopilot Control Head (Sail) is a push-button operation controller designed primarily for sailboats. Advanced LED backlighting offers low power consumption and delivers vibrant colour and contrast. Wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles ensure the display can be seen clearly from acute positions. The p70 control head also features the LightHouse user interface and a start up wizard to help you configure the pilot quickly and easily.
The Evolution SeaTalkNG cable kit contains 1 x SeaTalkNG Power Cable (0.4m), 1 x SeaTalkNG Backbone Cable (5m), 1 x SeaTalkNG Spur Cable (0.4m), 1 x SeaTalkNG 5-way Connector Block, 2 x SeaTalkNG T-piece Connector, 2 x SeaTalkNG Terminator.
Evolution AI – The culmination of Raymarine ™s 30 years of autopilot expertise, FLIR Systems research and development, and advanced aerospace guidance technology, Evolution AI control algorithms deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. This innovative breakthrough in autopilot intelligence enables Evolution autopilots to perceive their environment and then instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximise performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.
The EV Sensor Core – At the centre of every Evolution system is the intelligent EV sensor core, a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing. Mount the EV sensor core above or below decks, the rugged enclosure is fully sealed and built to IPX6 and IPX7 waterproofing and submersion standards.
