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
  • Easy setup - straightforward guide steps you through first-time install
  • Easy-to-install, plug-and-socket connection - with no complex terminal wiring
  • Supported by Simrad Service and Support program
  • *For displacement hulls or other difficult-to-steer vessels, an AP24, AP28 or IS40 Autopilot system is recommended

  • RC42 Heading Sensor
  • Hydraulic Pump Fitting Kit -- Everything you need to connect with your existing hydraulic system - including t-connectors, hoses and oil.

Imperial County Residents Help Tackle Air Monitoring

Residents from Imperial County, California are benefitting from a new air quality monitoring network of low-cost environmental sensors that provide real-time pollution data. The county is subject to many air pollution sources such as field burning, unpaved roads, several industrial facilities and its close proximity to the Salton Sea. The City of El Centro, California, which is located in the county, has the fifth-worst air quality in the United States, according to a study by the American Lung Association. While there are several different types of air pollution, particulate matter (PM) is a main concern in Imperial County. PM is a mixture of extremely small particles and liquid droplets that get into the air.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.
