Raymarine’s new Evolution EV-2 drive-by-wire autopilot system has been certified for use with SeaStar Solutions’ new Optimus EPS and Optimus 360 electronics steering systems. Optimus EPS systems provide effortless electronic power steering for outboard powerboats, while Optimus 360 systems add easy 360-degree maneuvering capabilities using an intuitive joystick controller. Both systems use CAN bus networking for steer-by-wire control.

The new Evolution EV-2 autopilot system delivers an autopilot experience with sharp course keeping and simple operation. Evolution’s innovative EV-2 sensor core connects directly to the Optimus CAN bus network. No extra gateways or convertors are required for installation. The Evolution autopilot uses Dockside Wizard and Automagic calibration for expedited setup.

Evolution utilizes nine-axis EV sensor core and Evolution Ai algorithms for course control and guidance. The EV sensor core contains both an attitude heading reference system, as well as the autopilot course logic system. This packaging of components reduces the size of the traditional autopilot core pack to a five-inch disc that can be mounted above or below decks.

Raymarine’s Evolution autopilot recently received the 2013 NMEA-BWI Technology award and the IBEX Innovation Award for electronics.
