Raymarine’s new Evolution EV-2 drive-by-wire autopilot system has been certified for use with SeaStar Solutions’ Optimus EPS and Optimus 360 electronics steering systems.
Optimus EPS systems provide effortless electronic power steering, while Optimus 360 systems add 360-degree maneuvering capabilities using a joystick controller. Both use state-of-the-art CAN bus networking for steer-by-wire control. The Evolution EV-2 autopilot system delivers sharp course keeping and simple operation. Evolution’s innovative EV-2 sensor core connects directly to the Optimus CAN bus network. Easy to install, the Evolution autopilot uses simple Dockside Wizard and Automagic calibration. www.raymarine.com
