SG05 for Optimus 360 steering systems
The Simrad SG-05 CAN-bus Autopilot connects directly to Optimus and Optimus 360 steering systems giving you a fully integrated steering, navigation and autopilot system.
The Optimus steering system is different: Instead of using a manual helm pump, an electronic helm sensor sends signals along a CAN-bus network to the Pump Control Module which powers the hydraulic pump.
Advantages of SG05 and Optimus:
- With an Optimus steering system installed, the autopilot can be fitted in minutes: simply plug into the Optimus CAN-bus network.
- No need to Tee into hydraulic lines.
- The compact design of the SG05 makes it easy to install
