New Quickstick Remote for AP50 Autopilot

Wednesday, May 24, 2006
Simrad Yachting announced the availability of the new QuickStick (QS50). This new joystick device combines fingertip control with advanced auto steering features for commercial fishing boats, workboats and motoryachts using the AP50 autopilot. QuickStick adds a higher level of performance and versatility for the AP50 by allowing full control of major autopilot functions without the need to reach for the main control.

The QuickStick can be placed at the preferred station on a vessel, be it on the wheelhouse console, pilot's chair arm or-thanks to Simrad's weather and waterproof construction-out on the open deck. Its unique design provides easy fingertip control of NFU power steering with automatic centering of the rudder simply by pulling back on the stick. This key feature provides precise control by eliminating the need to jog the rudder over to steer a straight course.

Selecting from Standby, NFU or Auto Modes is achieved by a single press of the joystick. Thruster control can also be applied with a single press. LED status lights designed for day and night vision confirm mode selections and make it easy to check autopilot status at a glance. Thereis also an optional three position switch for combinations of thruster and rudder control.

The Simrad QuickStick is designed for simplified control; a single press of the joystick delivers a 1° change of course and a press and hold enables a 5° course change.
