Engineered for simplicity, Evolution autopilots eliminate the need for complicated set up and calibration. Thanks to the intelligent EV sensor core, the autopilot automatically evolves and adapts to your vessel’s steering characteristics without any user adjustments. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.
At the center 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. Pair the EV-1 sensor with a rugged ACU (Actuator Control Unit) to drive hydraulic, linear, mechanical or solenoid steering systems. Alternatively, forego the ACU and select the EV-2 sensor for easy integration into drive-by-wire steering system.
Complete your Evolution autopilot system with a p70 or p70R autopilot control. The p70/p70R control heads feature vibrant full color displays and are powered by Raymarine’s intuitive LightHouse user interface. In addition to nine pre-programmed fishing patterns and power steer mode, the p70/p70R control heads also feature wind vane and auto-tack modes.
The Raymarine EV-200 p70 Sail Pack with Type 1 Linear Drive Unit is the ideal autopilot for medium to large sailboats. This all-in-one pack includes everything needed to build a full Evolution autopilot system. The solid-state EV-1 sensor core provides unrivaled course keeping, while the p70 control head offers a variety of steering modes, including an auto-tack mode that optimizes tacks based on the desired wind angle.
