AP70 Mk2 Autopilot - Control Head Only
The AP70 Mk2 is a dedicated autopilot controller designed to meet the needs of professional mariners aboard a variety of commercial vessels.
Replacing both the AP70 and AP80 as our IMO/SOLAS autopilot controller, the AP70 Mk2 retains much of the well-reputed platform of its predecessors, but with a brilliant new display and modernised software interface.
Engineered for responsiveness, robustness and ease of use, the AP70Mk2 pairs a precision rotary control dial with dedicated buttons for instant access to steering modes, several custom-configurable work modes and multiple rudder/thruster integration.
Wheelmarked for use on SOLAS vessels
The AP70 Mk2 builds on, and continues the legacy of the SIMRAD Pro autopilot product portfolio. Its performance, robustness and quality are proven and recognised with the wheelmark symbol, making it suitable for all vessels ranging from small work- boats to large tankers.
Advanced configuration and tuning options to suit all ships
Parameters ranges and tuning options to support vessel dynamics. Adjustable for all weather conditions, hull types, work situations. Suitable for retro-fit on old ships as well as modern new-builds.
Compatible with all common rudder/drive types
Water jet, Azi-pods, Voith-Schneider, Rudder, outboard. Control signals to control, hydraulic pumps, solenoids, analog current/voltage, control/handshake signals.
Up to 6 rudders/thrusters integration
Dual rudders, fore and aft thrusters supports large and complex installations and redundancy.
Heavy-duty rudder feedback support
Simrad heavy-duty rudder feedbacks are supported.
Configurable Work Mode and Low/High Speed Modes
Autopilot settings can be tuned for optimal performance in separate low-speed, high-speed, and Work modes. The user-configurable Work mode allows the autopilot system to be configured for optimal response in a specific situation, such as a fully laden vessel, configurable thruster usage.
No Drift Steering
No Drift mode integrates GPS navigation with auto-steering, using position data to counteract the effects of wind and tide. This allows the AP70 Mk2 to maintain a straight track over ground on the current course, without the need to manually set a waypoint or route.
Navigation steering, route following
Navigation steering controls the ship on a pre-planned route from a Simrad MFD, Simrad ECDIS or third party MFD and ECDIS.
Command transfer and multiple control stations support
Command transfer is a mechanism useful in multi-controller installations. It enables the officer on watch to allow, deny the transfer of autopilot control to control devices such as a secondary AP70 Mk2 or a remote controller on a bridge wing station, above deck, or aft bridge depending on the work scenario. The AP70 Mk2 can also be used in an open configuration, where control flow is unrestricted.
