Simrad AP60 Autopilot

Replacing the renowned AP35, the AP60 is a cost effective autopilot system which provides commercial vessels with the perfect balance of performance and price.

Based on the proven user interface of the AP70/80 Autopilots, the AP60 is incredibly easy to set up and use. The intuitive menu system and large, high contrast mono-screen and clear digits makes reading the display effortless. The heading control includes a rotary course wheel as well as dedicated WORK, AUTO and STANDBY buttons, enabling simple performance selection depending on your task at sea.

The AP60 includes 2 user configurable WORK modes which allow the operator to have pre-set modes of operation for the vessel. An operator could have light ship, partially loaded, fully loaded , underway, trawling or manoeuvring options pre-loaded. The AP60 also includes turn patterns such as U-Turns, C-Turns, Dodging and NoDrift steering.

The Simrad autopilot series prides itself on flexibility and the ability to customise a solution to steer any vessel. The control unit can be used in isolation, as part of a multi-station system, or alongside a wide range of control units. The AP60 is compatible with the most comprehensive range of Simrad autopilot controllers and accessories such as rudder feedback units, computers and interface boxes, heading sensors etc. This unit stands out among the competition for its sheer versatility and the ability to meet the needs of a wide range of both leisure and commercial vessels.
