Raymarine Evolution EV-150 Hydraulic Autopilot System Pack
April 28, 2017
Raymarine’s Evolution EV-150 Hydraulic Autopilot System Pack is a complete autopilot kit that can be easily installed on many popular fishing and cruising powerboats with hydraulic steering. The affordable system comes complete with a p70Rs autopilot controller, EV1 Sensor Core, ACU-150 Actuator Control Unit, Type 1 12v Hydraulic Pump, and cabling kit.
The EV-150 Hydraulic Autopilot is ideal for small-to medium-sized hydraulically steered vessels with a steering ram capacity of between 4.9 cu. in (80cc) and 14.0 cu in. (230cc). The system is compatible with 12-volt DC electrical systems only.
Engineered for simplicity, Raymarine’s award-winning Evolution autopilots eliminate the need for complicated setup and calibration. Thanks to the intelligent 9-axis EV sensor core, the autopilot automatically evolves and adapts to the vessel’s steering characteristics without any user adjustments.
The Evolution ACU-150 Actuator Control Unit employs Raymarine’s patented Hydro-Balance technology, which automatically compensates for hydraulic system elasticity, steering system asymmetry, and torque steer to keep the boat on-course at all speeds.
The system is equipped with Raymarine’s latest Evolution TrackIQ algorithms, which deliver tight track-keeping and fast track acquisition. It also uses information on vessel pitch, roll, yaw and heave to stabilize GPS navigation data such as course over ground, speed over ground and cross track error for the best possible tracking to waypoints and routes. And anglers will appreciate the autopilot’s pre-programmed trolling patterns, which free the helmsman to help set lines, rig baits and attend to other duties while the boat steers itself.
