AC 70

Autopilot Computer Drive computer for rudder using reversible motor or non-isolated solenoids and frequency rudder angle feedback. Connection for NFU remote control and one channel IEC 61162-1 (NMEA 0183) RX/TX or IEC 61162-1,2 and 3 compatible.

RF 300 Rudder Feedback Unit

The RF300 is a medium duty rudder feedback unit which connects directly to the Autopilot Pilot Computer using two-wire frequency interface. The RF300 rudder feedback unit contributes towards smooth and accurate auto-steering by determining rudder angle. Used on boats with inboard engines.


Drive interface for on/off or proportional control of rudder or thruster using galvanic isolated solenoids or high level current with possibility for frequency, voltage or current angle feedback, digital drive handshake and external mode input.
