Simrad IS40 Autopilot System Pack
With OP10 Controller and RPU80 Hydraulic Pump
The most sophisticated small boat pilot on the market, the Simrad system
features a complete set of Turn Patterns - including Depth Contour Tracking,
programmable S-turn, Zig-Zag, Continuous Turn, Square Patterns and many more.
Improved steering algorithms provide smooth and precise turns in any condition
and improves tack and gybe performance on sailboats. No Drift Course maintains
the set Course Over Ground even in severe wind and current conditions. Self
calibrating features automatically compensate for the unique handling
characteristics of your boat and sea conditions, insuring optimum performance
without the need for expert manual calibration. The system includes the
The OP10 is an intuitive, wired remote controller that seamlessly integrates
with Simrad autopilots. It can be utilised as a second controller alongside
larger NSS, NSE and NSO systems or as a standalone controller when linked to an
IS40 instrument display and the necessary computers and drives.
AC12 Autopilot Computer
The AC12 Autopilot Computer is the brains behind the Simrad autopilot system.
It contains both the steering computer and the electronics for the drive unit
and also provides interface to other system components using the proprietary
SimNet data network and standard NMEA 0183 signals. The AC12 will handle the
RPU80 pump as well as most of the smaller linear drive units. Includes 16 ft. of
SimNet cable for connection to the display unit.
RC42 Rate Compass
The Simrad RC42 Rate Compass utilizes a solid state rate sensor and a
magnetic fluxgate sensor to deliver exceptional performance in adverse sea
conditions and provide stable heading information to radars and other navigation
equipment. The RC42 compass is designed for connection to the SimNet network and
will continue to transmit heading information even if the autopilot is turned
off. Comes with 18 feet of SimNet cable.
Virtual Rudder Feedback
This unique feature means that no rudder feedback unit is needed for
outboards and stern drive boats. Sophisticated software in the processor
estimates rudder position by constantly monitoring heading, rate of turn, and
amount of rudder applied. With a virtual feedback you will save a considerable
amount of time and aggravation during installation and increase the reliability
of your autopilot system. Note: A rotary or linear feedback is required for the
display to show actual rudder angle.
