Simrad Autosteering - 60 years in the making
OUR HERITAGE
SMART OPERATIONS
The Simrad AP70 and AP80 represent over 60
years of experience and development in the
autosteering business. Simrad’s heritage extends
back to the world’s first autopilot for fishing
vessels in 1951 (the AP1) and we now bring you
the latest generation in professional heading
control systems that are guaranteed to provide
you with the highest standards of reliability and
functionality.
The AP70 and AP80 are cost effective, reliable and
user-friendly heading control systems for all vessel
types. Built with the latest electronics, software
and networking capabilities, these pilots are easy
to install and easy to operate ensuring your vessel
operations are smarter and more competitive.

BUILD YOUR SYSTEM
DEPENDABLE SERVICE
Integrating your Simrad Autopilot with a wider
range of steering systems is now possible. Select
one of five autopilot computers and one of three
special purpose interface boxes to integrate with
solenoids, pumps, analogue and proportional
steering systems. The AP70 and AP80 will steer
water jets, rudders, pods, stern drives, azimuth
thruster and tunnel thrusters providing flexibility
across your fleet of vessels all with the same
user interface, making it easy for crew to move
between vessels.
Both the AP70 and AP80 systems come with
a 2-year product warranty as standard and are
backed up with a global network of certified
support partners.

boarding from a small vessel more difficult and our S-Turn

active, the autopilot goes to standby. If the joystick is moved backwards when
in standby, the rudder moves to mid-position. The joystick has spring return to
center position.

Hydraulic steering systems are now being used in every category
of vessel. In many respects hydraulic steering is preferable to
mechanical steering. Hydraulic systems normally comprise of two
main components, a steering wheel pump and steering cylinder(s).
The steering wheel pump may be either a gear pump or a plunger
pump. Which ever type is installed, steering is achieved by turning
the steering wheel in either direction causing oil from the wheel
pump to be supplied to the appropriate side of the cylinder. Oil is
returned via the opposite side of the cylinder back to the pump.
RPU80
The linear motion of the cylinder rod is transformed to a rotary
motion by the tiller, which turns the rudder shaft and rudder. Check
valves (non-return valves) are usually incorporated to prevent the
rudder driving the steering wheel pump. If an autopilot is to be
included in such a hydraulic steering system, then the oil flow
providing the rudder movement must be controlled by electrical
signals from the autopilot. The maximum flow rate of RPU80, RPU160
and RPU300 is 0,8 l/min., 1,6 l/min. and 3,0 l/min. respectively,
measured at a pressure of 10 bar with nominal voltage (12 VDC) on
the motor terminals.

Gyrocompasses
The Simrad Gyro Compasses are the most reliable Gyro Compasses
on the market and with no liquids to change every other year
like most other gyro compasses, they are virtually maintenance
free. A wide range of control units provide complete flexibility of
system configuration for new installation and easy retrofit into
existing repeater systems. The standard range of interfaces can
easily be expanded to provide signals for all vessel applications.
The distribution of power and heading signals from the control
units enables practical installation and easy retrofit. The unique
technology in the GC85 and GC80 gyrocompasses eliminates
“practically” the need for annual service. The GC85 and GC80 are
GC80, GC85 and RGC50 Gyrocompasses
fully IMO approved for standard and High Speed Craft (GC85) and
can be configured in a dual gyrocompass system. The highest
possible accuracy and stability is provided from new technology,
by a sophisticated and fully sealed sensitive element.
The Simrad GC85 and GC80 gyrocompasses are the ideal
solutions for the advanced DP system needed in offshore industry.

Rudder Angle Indicators
I S 8 0 and I S 7 0 R udd e r A N G L E Ind i cat ors
IS80 and IS70 Rudder Angle indicators provide a smooth,
continuous reading of the rudder angle. 45 and 90 degree scale
options are available.
IS70/80 Rudder Angle indicators have a +/- 10V input or are
interfaced via the SimNet network which is signal compatible with
IEC61162-3 (NMEA2000 compliant).

Heading Repeaters
A full range of analog and digital repeaters are available for
all vessel applications. Analog, digital and bearing repeaters
can be used with all Simrad gyrocompasses. All repeaters
are water resistant for external use.

I S 8 0 R at e o f Turn
A large format analogue display showing the rate of turn of
the vessel to either port or starboard in degrees per minute,
displayed in clear white numbers on a black background.
Can be used connected to GC80/GC85 on +/- 10V and together
with HS70 on the CAN bus (IEC61162-3).
