Raymarine Evolution autopilots are not just Hudson Marine Electronic's best selling autopilots, they are now their best selling product of all time. Sales have generated them a revenue in excess of £1.2 Million. When asked what makes Raymarine Evolution autopilots such a good product the answer was “reliable easy to fit and just work” To celebrate this milestone Hudson Marine Electronics are giving 25% discount of off selected Raymarine Evolution autopilot packs.
No fuss, easy to install and robust - the Evolution autopilot combines Raymarine's autopilot expertise, FLIR Systems' R&D, and advanced aerospace guidance technology to create Evolution Ai control algorithms that deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control.
Race Performance - When only the best will do. Razor sharp course keeping. Fine-tuned for racers!
Cruising Performance - Superb course keeping and crisp turns in all conditions - the Raymarine skippers choice
Leisure Performance - For relaxed boating, when soaking up the sun is more attractive than precise course keeping
At the centre of every Evolution system is the intelligent EV sensor core, a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing.
Mount the EV sensor core above or below decks, the rugged enclosure is fully sealed and built to IPX6 and IPX7 waterproofing and submersion standards.
The rugged ACU (Actuator Control Unit) delivers reliable autopilot drive power and also provides power to the SeaTalkng bus. Choose the ACU that fits your steering type:
|ACU-100||Wheel, tiller and 0.5 ltr Hydraulic|
|ACU-150||Type-1 Hydraulic Drive Unit|
|ACU-200||Type 1 Raymarine hydraulic, linear and rotary mechanical drives|
|ACU-300||For solenoid controlled steering systems and Raymarine constant running hydraulic pumps|
|ACU-400||Type 2 and 3 Raymarine hydraulic, linear, and rotary mechanical drives|
EV-1 autopilots consist of a Control Head, EV-1 Sensor, Autopilot Control Unit (ACU) and drive unit. The drive unit (inboard mechanical/ hydraulic or cockpit mounted) and correct ACU for your vessel is dependent on the steering system and displacement of the vessel itself.
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. A single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an Autopilot Control Unit (ACU) further simplifying installation.
The Raymarine p70s autopilot control head is a push-button operation controller designed primarily for sailboats, while the Raymarine p70Rs autopilot control head, with its combination of push-buttons and rotary control dial, is aimed at powered craft.
Control your Evolution Autopilot directly from your Raymarine Axiom, Axiom Pro, aSeries, cSeries, eSeries or gS Series multifunction display. Note that your multifunction display must be running Raymarine's LightHouse II software and that some autopilot functionality may not be available if your system does not include a dedicated autopilot control head.
