NavAP autopilot - has a modern control panel and modular concept that allows the autopilot to be integrated into any navigation console without compromising the overall style of the bridge.

The autopilot panel mount is based on a mounting frame, which, unlike most hairpin-mounted navigation devices, makes it easy to remove the NavAP panel from the navigation console if necessary.

The protection level of the front panel has also been increased from IP44 to IP67 compared to the previous model, which allows the NavAP panel to be installed in open control positions outside the steering bridge.

When developing the new autopilot, special attention was paid to the consistency and convenience of displaying information on the system screen. The 6.5-inch high-resolution color anti-glare LCD screen displays all the information the operator needs in maximum detail: the list of alarm messages, the set and current course, the set and current rudder shift angles, the angular rate of rotation, the current vessel speed and other data in different operating modes. autopilot NavAP.

An intuitive graphical interface and a small number of buttons provide quick access to all functions and modes of the system.

A number of new features have been added to the NavAP software. In particular, the new autopilot will allow switching between several (up to 5) control stations connected to the network. The Sensitivity parameter makes it as easy as possible to fine-tune autopilot performance based on external conditions (storm conditions, wind); its use makes it possible to cover most of the known adjustments of autopilots from other manufacturers in terms of steering gain or command, as well as coefficients for external weather disturbances.

The new Heading Monitor System (HMS) function allows real-time display of data coming simultaneously from two sources of heading information (gyrocompass + gyrocompass, gyrocompass + magnetic compass, gyrocompass + induction compass, etc.). It is also possible to use several sources of speed information (GPS, relative or absolute lag).

The fully automatic algorithm for fine tuning the autopilot Auto Tune allows you to quickly and easily tune the performance of the system to the hydrodynamic parameters of any vessel, regardless of its displacement and dimensions. This flexibility in system configuration makes it possible to install a NavAP autopilot on board any vessel equipped with one, linked or independent rudders, or stern rudders.

Interfaces for connecting NavAP to steering gear:

  • Solenoid valves, 24V DC (load current up to 3A)

  • Proportional valves - 0 ... 10 V, ± 10V or control signal 4 ... 20mA

  • Proportional steering via steering system with follow-up control - 0 ... 10 V, ± 10V or control signal 4 ... 20mA

Sensor interfaces:

  • 1 or 2 heading sensors (gyrocompass, satellite or magnetic compasses)

  • DGPS

  • Lag (speed over water)

  • VDR (Voyage Data Recorder)

  • Rate-Of-Turn Sensor


  • Wind sensor (anemometer) for WinVane mode on sailing yachts.

The simplest converter is a trans-former, transforming or converting one voltage into another voltage, for instance 440 V into 110 V.
Transformers have losses, as heat is produced during this conversion. The efficiency is usually between 90 and 98 percent, depending on size, a reason to avoid transform¬ers in power distribution systems
