Product Description

Raymarine EV-DBW Drive-by-Wire Powerboat Autopilot


Evolution Autopilots combine advanced aerospace guidance technology with Raymarine’s marine autopilot expertise to deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. Evolution has no need of a setup compass swing or calibration, and does not need to be adjusted to the boat in which it is installed. This innovative breakthrough in autopilot intelligence uses Evolution AI™ control algorithms which enable Evolution autopilots to perceive their environment and instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximize performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.

At the heart of the Evolution system is the ultra-compact, EV sensor core—a nine-axis heading sensor and full-function course computer. Around the same size as a typical marine GPS sensor, the EV sensor core can be bracket-mounted or flush-mounted horizontally, and can be installed above or below deck (it’s IPX6 water-resistant) as space and practicality dictate.

EV-2 simply uses a direct DeviceNet (NMEA 2000) connection to a third party drive-by-wire system such as SeaStar Solutions Optimus 360, Volvo Penta IPS or ZF Pod Drive. Autopilot control is via the p70R control head. Setting-up an Evolution autopilot takes just 30 seconds; select the boat type—large power, small power, or sail; select the drive type—hydraulic, mechanical, or outboard; and choose the performance level—performance, cruise, or leisure, it is as easy as that.

NOTE1: Evolution Autopilots communicate via SeaTalkng. A SeaTalkng to NMEA Converter Kit (E22158) may be required to connect older Raymarine or non-Raymarine displays. Raymarine software version 1.21 is also a minimum requirement.

Designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering system, the EV-DBW connects directly to Raymarine’s SeaTalkng bus and also features a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems like ZF Pod Drives, Volvo IPS (optional Volvo IPS gateway and additional cabling required) and SeaStar Solutions Optimus systems. The single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an ACU, further simplifying installation. The EV-2 sensor core is designed to integrate seamlessly with the DBW systems, as well as Raymarine multi-function displays, to provide spot-on course keeping and route tracking. Since steering is handled by the vessels integrated systems, no additional Actuator Control or drive units are needed. With only the EV-2 sensor core and p70R Control Head, this is a true plug-and-play autopilot.
