NAC™ -D is a steer-by-wire autopilot solution for Electronic Vessel Control Systems (steering systems with a digital interface).
With NAC -D, boaters with SeaStar® Optimus®, Yanmar® VC10/JC10, Volvo® IPS/EVC or Yamaha® helm master/single engine control systems can benefit from all the full features and performance of Simrad® autopilots.
Easy to install
Requires only the connection of two Micro-C connectors – there is no requirement for an additional hydraulic pump, rudder sensor installation or dockside rudder calibration. This saves boaters’ time and money.
Featuring Continuum® steering and support for the new SteadySteer™, the NAC -D allows automatic switching between two speed profiles delivering optimal steering performance at both low and high speeds.
Choose the controller to suit your preference from dedicated controllers like the AP™ 44 or AP 48.
Simrad® autopilot systems incorporate state-of-the-art electronics and represent over 70 years of experience and development. Simrad® autopilots can reduce your workload and fatigue and improve your situational awareness and safety, helping you arrive fresher at your destination.
*Steer-by-wire - digital steering, the steering signal between autopilot and actuator/pump/rudder is in the form of a digital communication protocol.
**Continuum steering - an autopilot algorithm technology based on decades of development, distilling countless hours of real world on-water experience into a system you can trust to take the helm.
***SteadySteer - an autopilot functionality allowing boaters to take immediate, manual control of the vessel through turns without having to disengage the autopilot.
