NAC-2 Core Pack with SteadySteer - Includes NAC-2, Precision-9, RF25N,
SteadySteer Flow Switch & N2k Starter Kit
Comprising of the medium-current NAC-2 autopilot computer, Precision-9 compass
and RF-25 rudder feedback unit ideal for smaller vessels, designed to run small
hydraulic drives and mechanical drives for vessels up to 10M (33') in length.
The NAC-2 Autopilot Computer is the brains behind your autopilot system. NAC-2
contains the control algorithms developed to helm a yacht across a broad range
of weather conditions and sea-states, alongside the electronics needed to
operate a hydraulic or mechanical drive unit, while also interfacing with other
components including heading sensors and rudder feedback units. The NAC-2 was
designed for boats up to 10M (33') in length and is suitable for low-current
hydraulic drives, mechanical drives, or solenoid valves with a current rating of
8 Amps continuous (12 Amps peak).
SteadySteer Flow Switch
Navigate safely with SteadySteer, a new functionality for autopilot systems that
allows boaters to take immediate, manual control of the vessel through turns
without having to disengage the autopilot. Coming out of turns, SteadySteer
automatically reengages the autopilot once a new heading is established.
Control the autopilot with the helm
SteadySteer automatically disengages the autopilot when you turn the vessel
manually and then reengages the autopilot when you have established a new
heading. No key-presses, no alarms – just turn the helm.
Less distractions – Just drive
No need to look at a display or push buttons to change course, merely point the
bow to your destination.
SteadySteer is compatible with NAC-2, NAC-3 autopilot computers (sw version
1.1.01.00 and newer), AP44, IS42, and AP48 (sw version 57.3.163 and newer) and
Simrad multifunction displays (sw version 20.2 and newer).
Suitable for vessels with hydraulic steering, SteadySteer will be available to
purchase alongside existing Simrad autopilot systems.
