Autopilot Technology

  • A free color brochure entitled, "A Milestone in Autopilot Technology," details the Navipilot from C. Plath.

    A general purpose, multi-function, microprocessor-controlled autopilot, the Navipilot V is suitable for application on all classes of ships ranging from yachts to supertankers.

    The brochure has an actual size full-color photo of the Navipilot V, showing the unit's easy-to-read liquid crystal display and logically arranged keyboard.

    A maximum of 20 remote autopilot repeaters can be connected to the master autopilot control unit, according to the brochure. Other features reported in the literature include: gyrocompass, magnetic compass and electronic compass inputs; independent off-course alarm; analogue output for thruster control, rudder propellers and waterjets; and automatic changeover to corrected magnetic compass heading if the gyrocompass input fails.

    The back panel of the brochure provides extensive details on technical data for the unit.
