EV-Drive by Wire - Specialised autopilot system for the latest generation of Volvo IPS and Volvo Aquamatic systems.

This pack includes:.

The EV-2 Sensor Core has been designed for the latest drive-by-wire steering systems and connects directly to Raymarine’s SeaTalkNG bus. EV-2 also has a dedicated CAN Bus port for direct connection to steer-by-wire steering systems – such as ZF Pod Drives, Yamaha Helm Master, Volvo IPS (Optional Volvo IPS gateway required plus additional cabling) and Seastar Solutions Optimus systems. A single CAN Bus connection to the EV-2 eliminates the need for an Actuator Control Unit (ACU), further simplifying installation.

The p70R autopilot control head (Power) is designed for power craft with push buttons and a rotary control dial. Advanced LED backlighting offers low power consumption and delivers vibrant colour and contrast. Wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles ensure the display can be seen clearly from acute positions. The p70R control head also features the LightHouse user interface and a start up wizard to help you configure the pilot quickly and easily.

Evolution AI - The culmination of Raymarine’s 30 years of autopilot expertise, FLIR Systems research and development, and advanced aerospace guidance technology, Evolution AI control algorithms deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. This innovative breakthrough in autopilot intelligence enables Evolution autopilots to perceive their environment and then instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximise performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.

The EV Sensor Core - At the centre of every Evolution system is the intelligent EV sensor core, a 9-axis sensor that monitors vessel motion in all three dimensions. The innovative EV sensor core combines advanced solid-state sensors with the Evolution autopilot processor into a single easy-to-install housing. Mount the EV sensor core above or below decks, the rugged enclosure is fully sealed and built to IPX6 and IPX7 waterproofing and submersion standards.
