Autopilot systems developed and manufactured by Raytheon
Anschütz are based on proven steering algorithms that have
been well known by seafarers for outstanding steering performance and reliability for decades.
NautoPilot 5000 is our latest autopilot series which has been
specially designed for all ships of 100 m length and above.
NP 5000 provides heading control, and course control and is part
of a track control system. It combines best steering performance
with lowest rudder activity for less fuel consumption. In
addition it allows an intuitive operation and provides a perfect
feedback about the steering performance.

NP 5500 is intended for use in areas where highest precision is
required (such as archipelagos).
The Acceleration Monitor (available from NP 5400 up) monitors
the cross acceleration of a ship and provides a warning if a user
defined threshold is exceeded. Dangerous situations are avoided

due to this unique feature of NP 5400/5500, resulting in increased
safety for life, ship and cargo.
DO YOU CARE ABOUT FUEL CONSUMPTION?
If yes, NP 5000 should be your autopilot of choice.
In Economy mode the intelligent adaptivity of NP 5000 analyses
the yawing movements of the vessel. Periodical movement will
be identified and the controller reduces its sensitivity to such
movements. Subsequently less rudder action is required, which
leads to lower levels of speed reduction and thus less fuel
consumption – automatically and continuously.
In addition NP 5000 is equipped with an integrated heading
and rudder plotter, which provides a graphical indication of
heading changes and rudder activity. This indication instantaneously indicates the steering performance of the autopilot due
to the effects of changes to parameter settings such as rudder,
counter rudder and yawing. The operator benefits from simple
adjustments of the autopilot’s settings to gain optimized steering
performance, which results in minimal rudder action and thus
again reduced fuel consumption.
Rudder activity and heading changes are displayed.
Autopilot settings can directly be changed.
The actual effect of NP 5000 on rudder steering can be seen
when comparing the heading and rudder plot of two voyages
of an oil tanker between Skagen and New York. Similar weather
conditions were observed during both voyages.
The left print-out shows the results of the vessel’s last voyage
before retrofitting the old autopilot system with NP 5000. The
right print-out shows results of the following voyage with
NP 5000.
It becomes obvious that rudder movement is more economic
and gentle with NP 5000. Less rudder movements means less
fuel consumption and more efficient ship operation.

CHOOSE FROM THREE OPERATION MODES
NP 5000 can be operated in classic heading control mode, but
also offers course control and track control modes.
Course control
Often heading control and course control are used synonymously.
But in fact it is a significant difference for navigation. In heading
control it is necessary to compensate for drift manually.
To overcome this disadvantage Raytheon Anschütz introduces the
course control mode. No manual drift corrections are required
as the NP 5000 steers the vessel on a course over ground line.
This leads to a more precise steering as NP 5000 compensates
for any drift deviations automatically.
Track control
NP 5000 is also approved as a track control system (in the best
category C) in combination with Raytheon Anschütz ECDIS as
well as several other ECDIS of different manufacturers. A route
(consisting of one or more tracks) is planned in the ECDIS and
NP 5000 steers the vessel automatically and accurately on that
route.
In heading control the course over ground line of the vessel is affected by
drift and wind
Route planning is done on ECDIS and NP 5000 ensures accurate track
steering
In course control the vessel stays on its course over ground line
independently of drift and wind
NautoPilot 5000 illustrates graphically any deviations from the course over
ground line
EASY INTEGRATION INTO STEERING GEAR CONTROL SYSTEMS
NP 5000 can be used in different system environments
If required, more than one NP 5000 can be connected directly
to the CAN bus. If it needs multiple operation units, Raytheon
Anschütz can offer two solution:
In combination with NautoSteer AS, NP 5000 is connected directly
to the redundant CAN bus of NautoSteer AS. The automatic
control is simply activated by pushing the heading control
button.

Several NP 5000 are connected to the redundant CAN bus. The
number of NP 5000 is actually only limited by the total number
of CAN bus addresses. These autopilots are independent of each
other: each one uses its own controller but also parameters like
rudder, counter rudder, yawing, limits, parameter sets, etc. The
autopilots are activated via take-over by pushing the heading
control button. Track control can be done with more than one
NP 5000 by switching the communication with ECDIS.

NautoPilots 5000
One operator unit (master NP 5000) is connected to the redundant CAN bus. Up to seven NP 5000 operator units can be used
in this configuration. The other operator units allow remote
operation of the master NP 5000 but all use the same parameters
such as rudder, counter rudder, yawing, limits, parameter sets,
etc. The master NP 5000 determines the variant (e.g. NP 5400).
The autopilots are activated via take-over by pushing the heading
control button. Track control can only be done with the master
NP 5000.
STAND-ALONE INSTALLATION AND RETROFIT
In combination with other steering gear control systems than
NautoSteer AS or for retrofitting old autopilots: In this case an
interface unit is added to NP 5000. This interface unit provides
the interfaces to the steering gear control system or directly to
the steering gear. NP 5000 is activated via a steering mode selector
switch. Due to its multitude of interfaces NP 5000 is the best
choice for retrofitting old autopilots.
