DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack

Everything you need in one box to fit an autopilot to your hydraulic-steer outboard motor, the DrivePilot™ lets you focus on any activity while keeping the boat on course. When connected to a NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 multifunction display (DrivePilot™ requires the latest NSS/NSO evo2 software), it can steer to a waypoint or along a route, select a turn pattern or simply hold a constant heading. The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack is supplied with a RC42 rate compass which is often used in much larger commercial vessels.

Simrad GO7/NSS evo2/NSO evo2 Navigation System Integration

Designed exclusively for Simrad navigation system control, the Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack does not include or require a dedicated head unit - perfect for smaller vessels with limited helm space. Set a heading, steer to a waypoint, or follow a predefined route, right from your existing touchscreen display - or take control and steer with precision. Easily convert trails to routes - so you can retrace a previous track - with the "one-touch" route creation feature.

Dash-mount Auto/Standby button

The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack includes a remote, dash-mount auto/standby button for installation at the helm. This lets you enable the autopilot with ease, or disable the autopilot and take manual control in an instant.

Automatic Turn Patterns

Pre-set turn patterns make manoeuvres such as U-turns simple and fuel efficient, while more complex turn patterns support activities such as fishing, searching for dive sites, or even mapping your favourite lake with Insight Genesis and the built-in sonar or a networked SonarHub sounder module.

Super-Quiet 0.8 L Hydraulic Pump

The Simrad DrivePilot™ Hydraulic-Steer Pack includes a highly efficient `PUMP-1' 0.8 litre hydraulic gear pump, suitable to drive hydraulic steering systems on inboard and single or double outboard vessels under 10 m (35 ft). High efficiency, 12V operation is suitable for smaller vessels, while super-quiet operation helps to keep your time on the water as enjoyable as possible.

Virtual Rudder Feedback

Simplifying autopilot installation and maintenance, Simrad Virtual Rudder Feedback technology means the NAC-1 does not require the installation of a separate feedback unit to track outboard position on single or dual-outboard vessels.

Optional Rudder Position Sensor

On inboard vessels, an RF25N rudder feedback sensor (sold separately) can be used to precisely measure rudder position, providing smooth autopilot operation and a useful indication of rudder angle on your display at the helm. The RF25N includes a 5.5 metre (18 ft) cable with Micro-C connector for easy connection to your boat's NMEA 2000® network.

Easy To Install, Everything Included

This comprehensive kit includes everything required for professional or DIY installation on single or dual-outboard vessels. Detailed instructions are provided, and plug-and-play connectors on the NAC-1 Autopilot Computer help make installation quicker and easier than ever.

Key Features
  • Steer your vessel to a heading, waypoint, route or cursor, with control from your NSS evo2 or NSO evo2 display
  • Repeat your path with automatic turn patterns
  • Recommended for outboard and sterndrive steering systems, on boats that are 30 feet and less, in length
  • VRF (Virtual Rudder Feedback) - simplifies pilot installation -- eliminating the need for a rudder position sensor

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
