adaptive heading control system
Ship autopilots take over control according to a fixed course or according to a predetermined route (waypoint list). On larger ships they are integrated into a comprehensive electronic navigation system (ECDIS).
NautoPilot 5000 has been specially designed for all ships of 100 m length and above. NP 5000 provides heading control, and course control and is part of a track control system. It combines best steering performance with lowest rudder activity for less fuel consumption.
Best steering performance with lowest rudder activity.
Precise steering thanks to unique Anschütz steering algorithms
Ease of use and intuitive handling
Fuel-saving thanks to weather adaptivity
Simple adjustment of autopilots parameters by use of heading and rudder plotter
Cross acceleration monitor for identification of dangerous situations
Course control mode for automatic drift compensation
Approved as part of a track control system in combination with several ECDIS
Approved for high speed crafts
Do you care about fuel consumption?
In Economy mode the intelligent adaptivity of NP 5000 analyses the yawing movements oft he vessel. Periodical movement will be identified and the controller reduces its sensitivity to such movements. Subsequently less rudder action is required, which leads to lower levels of speed reduction and thus less fuel consumption – automatically and continuously
