SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST features provide Efficient and Effective Helm Steering Control SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST features provide a exceptional interface to the boat’s hydraulic hand steering system, providing unrivalled comfort and control of steering directly from any manual helm on the vessel.
Self-learning and adaptive software
From the first dock-side setup through the last voyage you made, NavPilot continues to absorb your vessel's steering features, allowing for real-time, active adjustments to make the boat's steering effectively accurate. These modes significantly lessen steering effort and improve the safety of your autopilot.
The POWER ASSIST mode includes the SAFE HELM conception and offers speed-based, power assisted steering, signifigantly reducing manual helm exertion in manoeuvring situations. POWER ASSIST is a sole helm-activated assisted steering feature that can replace distinct electric and power-robbing, engine-driven power steering systems on many types of boats. POWER ASSIST reduces steering system difficulty and costs therefore increasing economy.
SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST modes will need to have the optional FPS8 Power Steering Module and a compatible HRP Pumpset, and the required system software.
If you are interested in utilizing the SAFE HELM and POWER ASSIST mode, we recommend that, when installing the NavPilot 700 Series Autopilot, the FPS8 Power Steering Module ( which is another option) is also purchased and installed in addition simultaneously, thus removing the need to re-plumb the hydraulic system and run additional connection cables in the future.
