A simple pushbutton interface makes the OP12 easy to use in rough conditions,
and reliably responsive to wet or gloved hands. Dedicated auto and standby

Pair the Simrad OP12 keypad with an IS42 Colour Instrument Display to create
a fully functional control head for your compatible Simrad autopilot system.
