Raymarine Autopilot Systems

Race, Cruise or Fish - Our Autopilot Systems Will Take Command

The culmination of Raymarines' autopilot expertise, FLIR Systems’ R&D, and advanced aerospace guidance technology, Evolution Ai™ control algorithms deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control.

Typical Autopilot systems consist of three main components: a course computer / processor, a drive mechanism, and a control head.

Evolution Autopilot

EVOLUTION AI™ – AUTOPILOT INTELLIGENCE
Our Evolution autopilot systems perceive their environment and instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximize performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions - Evolution autopilots steer so accurately they can save fuel and get you to your destination faster.

Drive Units

The Drive unit is the part that interfaces with your vessel's steering system to keep you on the right course. Raymarine has a broad range of drive units to match almost any type of steering system - our Evolution Autopilots accommodate hydraulic, mechanical and power assisted stern drive systems.

Control Heads

Complete your Evolution autopilot system with an autopilot control head. The new p70s and p70Rs feature vibrant colour displays and are powered by Raymarine’s intuitive LightHouse user interface. LightHouse organises all options into simple menu structures, so with Evolution’s Automagic 3-step setup process you will be up and running in minutes.

Inboard Autopilots

The Evolution inboard range consists of autopilot packs designed to suit specific vessel types, steering systems and vessel displacements. Autopilot pack selection is, therefore, determined by:

  1. The type of steering system installed on your vessel
  2. Hydraulic steering systems; the pump has to be matched to the ram (in cc)
  3. The size and displacement of your vessel - always take the fully laden displacement of your vessel into account

EV-200
The EV200 system pack controls vessels with any Type 1 drive unit (Hyrdraulic, Linear, Sail or Power).

EV300-Solenoid
The EV300 system is for use with electric solenoids that control the vessels hyrdraulic steering system.

EV-400
The EV400 pack controls vessels with any Type 1 to Type 3 mechanical or hyrdraulic drive units.


EV-2 For Drive-By-Wire Propulsion

EV-2 has been designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering systems and connects directly to Raymarine’s SeaTalkng bus. EV-2 also has a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems such as ZF Pod Drives, Yamaha Helm Master, Volvo IPS* and SeaStar Solutions Optimus systems.

This Evolution system pack is designed for use with the latest drive-by-wire steering systems.
