The AP9-S’s practical, ergonomic design means that the settings can be quickly adjusted by rotary control or touch button.
It has the feature of full electric tie-bar operation for dual rudders, full follow-up input, JOG input, heading input, TMQ compass sensor,
compass top sensor or NMEA.
A practical and ergonomic approach to design
mean the AP9-S settings can be quickly adjusted by rotary control or touch pads. Precision steering is provided through rate of turn, rudder limits and counter rudder in addition to standard weather, rudder and trim controls.
The AP9-S can operate as a stand-alone system, with control unit, feedback and compass connected to any choice of drive units. Alternatively, the system can be integrated with navigational aids such as a GPS or GPS plotter to provide way point steering.
The AP9-S can be further customised by using different heading sensors:
• TMQ fluxgate compass
• Compass, top sensor for use with the ship’s main compass or elec. compass
• Stepper synchro
• Operational GNC-100 to convert gyro signals to NMEA
