Evolution Autopilots combine advanced aerospace guidance technology with Raymarine’s marine autopilot expertise to deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. Evolution has no need of a setup compass swing or calibration, and does not need to be adjusted to the boat in which it is installed. This innovative breakthrough in autopilot intelligence uses Evolution AI™ control algorithms which enable Evolution autopilots to perceive their environment and instantly calculate and evolve steering commands to maximize performance. The result is precise and confident course keeping, regardless of vessel speed or sea conditions.

At the heart of the Evolution system is the ultra-compact, EV sensor core—a nine-axis heading sensor and full-function course computer. Around the same size as a typical marine GPS sensor, the EV sensor core can be bracket-mounted or flush-mounted horizontally, and can be installed above or below deck (it’s IPX6 water-resistant) as space and practicality dictate.

EV-1 uses SeaTalkng cabling for a single power and data connection to the SeaTalkng bus and the Actuator Control Unit (ACU) which connects to the same bus to provide power and signal to a Raymarine hydraulic or mechanical autopilot drive system.

Autopilot control is via the p70 control head. Setting-up an Evolution autopilot takes just 30 seconds; select the boat type—large power, small power, or sail; select the drive type—hydraulic, mechanical, or outboard; and choose the performance level—performance, cruise, or leisure, it is as easy as that.

NOTE1: When sizing an Evolution system for your boat, always take the fully laden displacement weight of your vessel into account, this is often 20% above the designed displacement.

NOTE2: Evolution Autopilots communicate via SeaTalkng. A SeaTalkng to NMEA Converter Kit (E22158) may be required to connect older Raymarine or non-Raymarine displays. Raymarine software version 1.21 is also a minimum requirement.

EV-100 Wheel Sail is designed for sailboats with pedestal-mounted wheel steering. The Wheel Drive is quick and easy to install, fits most types of wheels with clean fully-enclosed design and a simple, robust clutch engagement mechanism. It is Smart Rudder Sense™  enabled, so a rudder Reference Transducer is not required.

Great Autopilot

By Dean

from Hot Springs, AR

Comments about Raymarine Evolution EV-100 Wheel Sail Autopilot:

Not exactly a DIY system, although it could be if a little more explanation and instruction was included. Documents included with each of the separate components often contradict what is appropriate for the EV100 system. But I finally found the 4 page sheet on commissioning and it sort of pulled it together. No indication that this took precident, but I assume it does. Similar installation instructions and diagrams for system would have been helpful. Anyway, I got it installed and dockside setup an sea trials (which turned out to be very simple) and it appears to work great. Still yet to test it under sail but I have confidence it will be well worth the money, especially with the rebate I have not yet received.

Comments about Raymarine Evolution EV-100 Wheel Sail Autopilot:

Beware - you will need a current generation Raymarine chartplotter to accept the chip to as to update this and all of the related products such as the i70. Be sure to update firmware before installing. But, then you have issue of updating firmware next year!!
