Pelagic Autopilot System for Heavy Tiller Steered Vessels (lead time currently 3 weeks)
This system combines the Pelagic Heavy Duty Electronics package with a 3,200N, ruggedized 12V actuator to handle heavier, tiller steered vessels.
In use by offshore sailors and racers around the world, the Pelagic Autopilot is a sophisticated, yet simple standalone system designed to perform in a variety of conditions.
Our state of the art 9 axis gyro based system processes data on the vessel's pitch, roll and yaw to monitor and predict boat movement in any sea state, whether surfing downwind or beating against the trades. Its internal compass is independent of other onboard systems, allowing the autopilot to keep you on course long after the chartplotter gives out.
If you want to sail a high course or maintain sheet angles despite compass headings, the Pelagic system can incorporate your NMEA 0183 apparent wind data as well. NMEA 2K requires a gateway, like the Actisense NGW-1.
The Pelagic system is trusted by offshore sailors around the world. Install one on your boat for better performance and safety.

Fabric covers for actuators and control head (see accessories)
Data from nine MEMS sensors monitor the vessel's attitude and is used to adjust course and to compensate for roll, pitch, and yaw.
NMEA 0183 data can be monitored to enable wind direction steering.
A simple user interface is implemented in a watertight control head.
Support for 2°, 10°, 25° and 95° course adjustment
10° and 25° course adjustments require use of optional wireless remote
Dimmable LED lamps indicate status.
The control head and motor drive are housed in IP watertight enclosures.
